Yesterday, Microsoft announced the existence of CVE-2019-1458, which is a vulnerability affecting all current Windows operating systems, from Windows 7 through to 10 and Server 2008 to 2016. This vulnerability comes with a CVSS score of 7.8, which leads us to believe that its being taken as a serious vulnerability within the underlying construction of the Windows platform. Luckily, if someone did wish to exploit this vulnerability, they would first need to log on to a system and then execute an application to exploit the vulnerability. The fix has been rolled into the December Monthly Rollup as well as being released as a separate Security Only update. All Foundation IT customers will be made aware directly and then have the fix applied as soon as possible.
