Workaround

Updates for Windows released October 8, 2019 or later provide protections, tracked by CVE-2019-1318, against an attack that could allow unauthorized access to information or data within TLS connections. This type of attack is known as a man-in-the-middle exploit. Windows might fail to connect to TLS clients and servers that do not support Extended Master Secret for resumption (RFC 7627). Lack of RFC support might cause one or more of the following errors or logged events:

  • "The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure Channel"

  • SCHANNEL event 36887 is logged in the System event log with the description, "A fatal alert was received from the remote endpoint. The TLS protocol defined fatal alert code is 20.​"
