Microsoft Security Advisory (2953095)
Vulnerability in Microsoft Word Could Allow Remote Code Execution
- https://technet.micr...dvisory/2953095
Mar 24, 2014 - "Microsoft is aware of a vulnerability affecting supported versions of Microsoft Word. At this time, we are aware of limited, targeted attacks directed at Microsoft Word 2010. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted RTF file using an affected version of Microsoft Word, or previews or opens a specially crafted RTF email message in Microsoft Outlook while using Microsoft Word as the email viewer. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights. Applying the Microsoft Fix it solution*, "Disable opening RTF content in Microsoft Word," prevents the exploitation of this issue through Microsoft Word... The vulnerability is a remote code execution vulnerability. The issue is caused when Microsoft Word parses specially crafted RTF-formatted data causing system memory to become corrupted in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code. The vulnerability could be exploited through Microsoft Outlook only when using Microsoft Word as the email viewer. Note that by default, Microsoft Word is the email reader in Microsoft Outlook 2007, Microsoft Outlook 2010, and Microsoft Outlook 2013. On completion of investigation for this vulnerability, Microsoft will take the appropriate action to protect our customers, which may include providing a solution through our monthly security update release process, or an out-of-cycle security update, depending on customer needs..."

• V1.1 (March 27, 2014): Updated Advisory FAQ to clarify that Microsoft WordPad is not affected by the issue and to help explain how the issue is specific to Microsoft Word.

April 26, 2014 8:25 PM - "Microsoft is aware of limited, targeted attacks that attempt to exploit a vulnerability in Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer 10, and Internet Explorer 11. The vulnerability is a remote code execution vulnerability. The vulnerability exists in the way that Internet Explorer accesses an object in memory that has been deleted or has not been properly allocated. The vulnerability may corrupt memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user within Internet Explorer. An attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit this vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website. On completion of this investigation, Microsoft will take the appropriate action to protect our customers, which may include providing a solution through our monthly security update release process, or an out-of-cycle security update, depending on customer needs.

Insecure Library Loading Could Allow Remote Code Execution
- https://technet.micr...ecurity/2269637
Updated: May 13, 2014 Ver: 19.0 - "Microsoft is aware that research has been published detailing a remote attack vector for a class of vulnerabilities that affects how applications load external libraries. This issue is caused by specific insecure programming practices that allow so-called "binary planting" or "DLL preloading attacks". These practices could allow an attacker to remotely execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the vulnerable application when the user opens a file from an untrusted location. This issue is caused by applications passing an insufficiently qualified path when loading an external library. Microsoft has issued guidance to developers in the MSDN article, Dynamic-Link Library Security, on how to correctly use the available application programming interfaces to prevent this class of vulnerability. Microsoft is also actively reaching out to third-party vendors through the Microsoft Vulnerability Research Program to inform them of the mitigations available in the operating system. Microsoft is also actively investigating which of its own applications may be affected. In addition to this guidance, Microsoft is releasing a tool that allows system administrators to mitigate the risk of this new attack vector by altering the library loading behavior system-wide or for specific applications. This advisory describes the functionality of this tool and other actions that customers can take to help protect their systems...
V19.0 (May 13, 2014): Added the following Microsoft Security Bulletin to the Updates relating to Insecure Library Loading section: MS14-023, "Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution."

Microsoft Security Advisory 2915720
Changes in Windows Authenticode Signature Verification
- https://technet.micr...ecurity/2915720
Published: Dec 10, 2013 | Updated: May 21, 2014 Version: 1.3
"Microsoft is announcing the availability of an update for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows to change how signatures are verified for binaries signed with the Windows Authenticode signature format. The change is included with Security Bulletin MS13-098, but will not be enabled until August 12, 2014. Once enabled, the new default behavior for Windows Authenticode signature verification will no longer allow extraneous information in the WIN_CERTIFICATE structure. Note that after August 12, 2014, Windows will no longer recognize non-compliant binaries as signed.
Recommendation: Microsoft recommends that by August 12, 2014, executables authors ensure that all signed binaries comport with this new verification behavior by containing no extraneous information in the WIN_CERTIFICATE structure. Microsoft also recommends that customers appropriately test this change to evaluate how it will behave in their environments...

Microsoft Security Advisory 2982792
Improperly Issued Digital Certificates Could Allow Spoofing
- https://technet.micr...ty/2982792.aspx
July 10, 2014 - "Executive Summary: Microsoft is aware of improperly issued SSL certificates that could be used in attempts to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks. The SSL certificates were improperly issued by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), which operates subordinate CAs under root CAs operated by the Government of India Controller of Certifying Authorities (CCA), which are CAs present in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Store. This issue affects all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. Microsoft is not currently aware of attacks related to this issue. The subordinate CA has been misused to issue SSL certificates for multiple sites, including Google web properties. These SSL certificates could be used to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks against web properties. The subordinate CAs may also have been used to issue certificates for other, currently unknown sites, which could be subject to similar attacks...
Recommendation: An automatic updater of revoked certificates is included in supported editions of Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows RT, Windows RT 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2, and for devices running Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 8.1. For these operating systems or devices, customers do not need to take any action because the CTL will be updated automatically.
For systems running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2008 R2 that are using the automatic updater of revoked certificates (see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2677070* for details), customers do not need to take any action because the CTL will be updated automatically.
For systems running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2008 R2, and that do -not- have the automatic updater of revoked certificates installed, this update is not available. To receive this update, customers must install the automatic updater of revoked certificates (see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2677070* for details). Customers in disconnected environments and who are running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2012 can install update 2813430** to receive this update (see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2813430** for details)..."

High Severity
July 10, 2014
Four fake certificates have been identified posing as Google and Yahoo, putting Internet Explorer users at risk.
Analysis: The certificates were issued by the National Informatics Centre (NIC) in India, whose certificate issuance process was reportedly compromised. NIC is trusted by CCA India, who in turn is trusted by Microsoft. Other fake certificates were likely issued as well, though details on the full scope of the breach have not been released. While the identified certificates have been revoked by CCA, they could nonetheless affect Windows users: real-time revocation checks performed by security measures using certificate revocation list and online certificate status protocol do not sufficiently prevent attacks, as seen following certificate revocations after disclosure of the OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability earlier this year. Firefox, Thunderbird, and Chrome users on Windows are -not- at risk, as the applications' root stores are independent of Windows. Users running Mac OS X, Linux, and other platforms are also not at risk. Until Microsoft has addressed the issue, Windows users should use applications other than Internet Explorer to access domains using TLS. [ http://arstechnica.c...-windows-users/ ]
