Some clients can't connect to conferencing modalities after you install Security Bulletin MS16-065

Symptoms

After you install the Microsoft .NET Framework Security Update MS16-065 on a Front End or Standard Edition server for Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, or Skype for Business Server 2015, some internal clients can't connect to certain conferencing modalities.

Additionally, Lync Web App may not function correctly in a Lync Server 2010 environment. For detailed steps to reduce Lync Web App problems in Lync Server 2010, see the "Workaround" section.

Notes

  • External clients that connect from outside your corporate network through Edge servers are not affected.
  • All clients can continue to join meetings, use instant messaging, see Presence information, and hear meeting audio.
  • This problem affects on-premises environments. This problem does not affect the Office 365 Skype for Business Online service.
For a complete list of the .NET Framework updates that can cause this problem, see the Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-065 - Important topic on the Microsoft TechNet website.

The following are the known modalities that are affected by this problem:

  • Whiteboards
  • Uploading PowerPoint Presentations
  • Sharing Notes
  • Polls
  • Q&A

The error messages that users may receive when this problem occurs include the following:

  • We can’t connect to the server for presenting right now.
  • Network issues are keeping you from sharing notes and presenting whiteboards, polls and uploaded Pow…
  • An error occurred during the Skype Meeting.

Cause

This problem occurs because an information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Transport Layer Security protocol and the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (TLS/SSL) as they are implemented in the encryption component of the Microsoft .NET Framework. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability can decrypt encrypted TLS/SSL traffic.

This vulnerability is fixed by the security update that's discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-065. This update changes the way that the .NET Framework encryption component sends and receives encrypted network packets.

The changes that are introduced in this security update affect how Skype for Business; Lync desktop clients for PC; and Skype for Business for Crestron RL, Polycom CX8000, and SMART Room System communicate together with the Web Conferencing Service on the Front End and Standard Edition servers. These changes cause the problems that are mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.

Important After the clients are updated, remove any previously installed workarounds in Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business 2015. To do this, delete the added registry keys.

Note For Lync Server 2010, Lync Web App still requires exceptions for the MeetingMCUSvc.exe and w3wp.exe service processes.



Workaround

Warning These workarounds may make a computer or a network more vulnerable to attack by malicious users or by malicious software such as viruses. We do not recommend these workarounds. However, we are providing this information so that you can implement these workarounds at your own discretion. Use these workarounds at your own risk.

Important Follow the steps in this section carefully. Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Before you modify it, back up the registry for restoration in case problems occur.

To work around the conferencing modality connection issues in Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, and Skype for Business 2015, you must add an application exception for the Web Conferencing Service (DATAMCUSVC.exe). For Lync Server 2010, you must also add an exception for the Lync Web App component (w3wp.exe).

Use the following examples to set the exceptions in your environment.

Skype for Business Server 2015

  1. Determine and record the path of DATAMCUSVC.exe on the server.

    Note By default, the installation path is as follows:
    C:\Program Files\Skype for Business Server 2015\Web Conferencing

    You can also obtain this information through the Services tool by reviewing the properties of the Skype for Business Server Web Conferencing service.
  2. Start Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. Locate the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319\System.Net.ServicePointManager.SchSendAuxRecord

    Note If you are proactively deploying the update in advance of applying the .NET Framework security update, you must create one or more keys manually because they do not yet exist.

  4. Create the following DWORD name and value:
    DWORD Name:Path_obtained_in_Step_1\DATAMCUSVC.exe
    DWORD Value: 0

    Important Do not include quotation marks in the DWORD name.

    The new DWORD name and value should resemble the following:
    DWORD Name: C:\Program Files\Skype for Business Server 2015\Web Conferencing\DATAMCUSVC.exe
    DWORD Value: 0

  5. Restart the Skype for Business Server Web Conferencing service (RTCDATAMCU).
  6. Users must log in again by using their Lync or Skype for Business desktop client in order to completely resolve the problem.

Lync Server 2013

  1. Determine and record the path of DATAMCUSVC.exe on the server.

    Note By default, the installation path is the following:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Web Conferencing

    You can also obtain this information through the Services tool by reviewing the properties of the Lync Server Web Conferencing service.

  2. Start Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. Locate the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319\System.Net.ServicePointManager.SchSendAuxRecord

    Note If you are proactively deploying the update in advance of applying the .NET Framework security update, you must create one or more keys manually because they do not yet exist.

  4. Create the following DWORD name and value:
    DWORD Name:Path_obtained_in_Step_1\DATAMCUSVC.exe
    DWORD Value: 0

    Important Do not include quotation marks in the DWORD name.

    The new DWORD name and value should resemble the following:
    DWORD Name: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Web Conferencing\DATAMCUSVC.exe
    DWORD Value: 0

  5. Restart the Lync Server Web Conferencing Service (RTCDATAMCU).
  6. Users must log in again by using their Lync or Skype for Business desktop client in order to completely resolve the problem.

Lync Server 2010

  1. Determine and record the paths of DATAMCUSVC.exe and MeetingMCUSvc.exe on the server.

    Note By default, the installation paths are the following:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Conferencing\DATAMCUSVC.exe

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\OCSMCU\Web Meeting Conferencing\MeetingMCUSvc.exe

    You can also obtain this information through the Services tool by reviewing the properties of the Lync Server Web Conferencing Service.

  2. Start Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. Locate the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v2.0.50727\System.Net.ServicePointManager.SchSendAuxRecord

    Note If you are proactively deploying the update in advance of applying the .NET Framework security update, you must create one or more keys manually because they do not yet exist.

  4. Create the following DWORD names and values:
    DWORD Name:Path_obtained_in_Step_1\DATAMCUSVC.exe
    DWORD Value: 0

    DWORD Name:Path_obtained_in_Step_1\MeetingMCUSvc.exe
    DWORD Value: 0

    DWORD Name: c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\w3wp.exe
    DWORD Value: 0
    Important Do not include quotation marks in the DWORD name. The w3wp.exe path is case sensitive and should be all in lowercase.

    The new DWORD name and value should resemble the following for all three processes:
    DWORD Name: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Conferencing\DATAMCUSVC.exe
    DWORD Value: 0
  5. Restart the Lync Server Web Conferencing service (RTCDATAMCU).
  6. Run the following command as an administrator
    iisreset /noforce
  7. Users must log in again by using their Lync or Skype for Business desktop client in order to completely resolve the problem.

Status

Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
