    Also see here A Vulnerability in the Microsoft Cryptographic Library CRYPT32.DLL Could Allow for Remote Code Execution

    The article references KB4534306 and the updates here https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...date-kb4534306

    I can't find KB4534306 on this forum. Has anyone installed the update and have any feedback?

    KB4534306 is the January 14, 2020 cumulative update for the original build 10240 (still in support in LTSB form). All the other CUs, including KB4528760 for 1909/1903 will have the same security fix.

    Windows CryptoAPI Spoofing Vulnerability

    The reported Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVE) being referred to in above posts is:

    CVE -
    CVE-2020-0601


    NVD - CVE-2020-0601


    The above is the one that grabbed the media's attention. Yet it is only ranked as an "important" fix.

    Yet to, other (8) "Black Tuesday" fixes this month have earned a "Critical" ranking but received far less publicity.

    Pity.

    Reference: Microsoft Patch Tuesday for January 2020
