THE THREAT:

Proof of Concept (PoC) exploit code and technical write-up have been released for the critical vulnerability CVE-2020-1147 affecting .NET Framework, Microsoft SharePoint, and Visual Studio [1]. If exploited, CVE-2020-1147 would allow for remote code execution [2]. This could be used for a variety of malicious purposes including data theft and malware deployment.

The release of PoC code and a technical write-up are likely to decrease the amount of time before exploitation may occur in the wild. Microsoft released security patches for this vulnerability on July 14th, 2020; organizations need to ensure that patches have been deployed on all vulnerable systems.
