July Patch Tuesday is here, better get your patch on … especially if you print

Hello everyone, both articles from Trend Micro and Krebs on Security are similar in content this week. While Krebs mentions Adobe as he always does, both articles make sure that you are aware of several things.

  • There are either 116 or 117 different patches are out there.
  • 15 of the patches were submitted through the Zero Day Initive project.
  • The biggest vulnerability is fixed in this week’s update dealing with printing.
  • Several other CVE’s are given and linked within talking about other aspects of vulnerabilities.

The Print issue

Both articles talk about CVE-2021-34527, an issue that deals with printing in Windows. An out of band patch was issued last week in regards to this vulnerability however it may have caused problems according to what I’ve read.

The vulnerability is known as print nightmare and there is guidance linked within Trend Micro’s article. Of course, Trend Micro talks about Microsoft Exchange and DNS servers multiplied. Krebs also has the same MSRC link for the print nightmare and links to the others as well.

I recently rebooted after a good week and Windows promnpted me to update and restart which I did.

While I don’t print, if you do, you’ll want to know about this vulnerability and othrs that might affect you, so give the two articles linked a read. Just click on their names to read it.
