Microsoft Patch Tuesday – Six Zero-Day Vulnerabilities

2 minutes read
Speak With A Security Expert Now

THE THREAT

On June 8th, Microsoft released security updates to address a total of 50 unique vulnerabilities in their products. These vulnerabilities were disclosed as part of Microsoft’s monthly Patch Tuesday software update. Six vulnerabilities are classified as zero-days, meaning they have been exploited in the wild prior to patch release and are of the most concern. Four of the zero-day vulnerabilities allow for privilege escalation, one allows for information disclosure, and the final vulnerability may be exploited to cause Remote Code Execution (RCE).

Organizations are recommended to immediately prioritize installation of software updates provided by Microsoft to mitigate ongoing activity by threat actors to exploit these zero-day vulnerabilities.
