Security Updates for Exchange (September 2019)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 128707
SynopsisThe Microsoft Exchange Server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe Microsoft Exchange Server installed on the remote host is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A spoofing vulnerability exists in Microsoft Exchange Server when Outlook Web App (OWA) fails to properly handle web requests. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could perform script or content injection attacks, and attempt to trick the user into disclosing sensitive information. An attacker could also redirect the user to a malicious website that could spoof content or the vulnerability could be used as a pivot to chain an attack with other vulnerabilities in web services. (CVE-2019-1266)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in Microsoft Exchange Server software when the software fails to properly handle objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could cause a remote denial of service against a system. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires that a specially crafted email be sent to a vulnerable Exchange server. The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Microsoft Exchange Server handles objects in memory. (CVE-2019-1233)
SolutionMicrosoft has released KB4515832 to address this issue.
