Cumulative Update 17 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central October'18 on-premises (Application Build 41201, Platform Build 41152)

Applies to: Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-premises)

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-premises deployments) for all countries and all language locales.

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. A user who has the permission to access certain features that requires a call from the Role-Tailored Client that has the dataset structure can start arbitrary shell commands through deserialization.

To learn more about the vulnerability, go to CVE-2020-0905.

Overview


When you upgrade on-premises deployments to this update, you and your customers must use a new license that covers more scenarios than the one for the original release in October 2018.

Why this new license?

In cumulative update 1 (CU1), we enabled new licensing scenarios so that Business Central is optimized for licenses that have named users. This was not fully supported in the RTM version that was made available on October 1, 2018. Therefore, CU1 requires a new license. You can pull new licenses when you upgrade customers to CU1.

The new licenses are required for CU1 and later versions of Business Central. They are not backwards compatible with earlier versions of Business Central.

What has changed?

In CU1, Business Central supports the product line IDs 49, 74, 75, and 76 for named users. For more information, see Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Pricing and Licensing.

This cumulative update includes all hotfixes and regulatory features that have been released for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, including hotfixes and regulatory features that were released in previous cumulative updates.

This cumulative update replaces previously released cumulative updates. You should always install the latest cumulative update.

It may be necessary to update your license after you install this hotfix to gain access to new objects that are included in this or a previous cumulative update. (This applies only to customer licenses.)
