Notice

This update is included in the Security and Quality Rollup that's dated November 14, 2017. This update was previously released as part of the Preview of Quality Rollup on October 17, 2017, the Security and Quality Rollup on October 10, 2017 and the Security and Quality Rollup on September 12, 2017.

Summary

This security update resolves a vulnerability in the Microsoft .NET Framework that could allow remote code execution when Microsoft .NET Framework processes untrusted input. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability by using the .NET Framework could take control of an affected system. The attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts that have full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less affected than users who operate by using administrative user rights.

To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker must first convince the user to open a malicious document or application.

This security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the .NET Framework validates untrusted input. To learn more about this vulnerability, see Microsoft Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures CVE-2017-8759.

Important

  • If you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update. Therefore, we recommend that you install any language packs that you need before you install this update. For more information, see Add language packs to Windows.

Quality and reliability fixes

Area

Description of the improvement(s)

CLR1

  • Very rarely, an instance of ReaderWriterLock may hang in the process of releasing a lock. A new configuration variable is introduced to allow opting in to the fix. To fix the issue, set the COMPlus_ReaderWriterLock_UseFixedIdGeneration environment variable to 1 before you start the application.

Networking

  • A fix that was included in the May Monthly Security and Quality Rollup is changed to improve the performance of network latency. This latency affects Active Directory lookups for the enhanced key usage (EKU) object identifiers (OIDs) function that is used in TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates.

WMI2

  • Code is changed to make the setting of the privileges event-driven so that it can support changes in the option values.

1  Common Language Runtime (CLR)
2 Windows Management Infrastructure (WMI)
