Additional information

Microsoft initially published security guidance on this vulnerability following February’s “Patch Tuesday” [1]. The vulnerability exists in Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services and could allow a low privileged attacker to exploit via a specially crafted request. Microsoft’s initial exploitability assessment determined exploitation to be less likely.

On Friday, February 14th, 2020, Soroush Dalili of MDSec published technical analysis of the vulnerability, including a Proof-of-Concept. While this does not indicate immediate mass exploitation by opportunistic attackers, it increases the likelihood of this occurring in the near term.
