December Microsoft Patch Tuesday Summary, (Tue, Dec 12th)

Microsoft today patched 36 different vulnerabilities (+ Flash). Luckily, none of the vulnerabilities have been exploited in the wild of have been disclosed prior to today. The list includes the malware protection engine update that was released on Friday. Probably the most interesting vulnerability is the remote code execution in Windows RRAS. (%%cve:2017-11885%%). According to Microsoft, this vulnerability can be exploited via RPC on servers that have routing enabled. (RRAS is the Routing and Remote Access Service). I am a bit confused why Microsoft rates this one only as “important”. Maybe because RRAS is not enabled by default.
