Watch Out! Calm Patch Tuesday Includes Sleeper Vulnerability

Vulnerability only listed as important, not critical, by vendor, but could have huge impact

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. - Oct. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- Verismic, a global leader in cloud-based IT management and security technology, has released its latest Patch Tuesday assessment. The October 2019 Patch Tuesday from Microsoft only includes 59 updates, much less than last month's release of 80 updates. However, this doesn't mean IT departments should be complacent, here are still nine updates listed as critical and 49 listed as important.

CVE-2019-1367, originally released as an out of band security update last month, has been re-released and is actively being weaponized. Following several misguided attempts to re-assure customers, Microsoft released it to WSUS on October 7th and have released it again on the 8th. They also noted the updated patch addresses some 'quality issues' in the first versions. Customers of Cloud Management Suite had all versions available to them, including the uninstalls.

Robert Brown, Director of Services at Verismic noted, "Our customers can be confident that when they use Cloud Management Suite, our expert onboarding team helps implement a successful patching strategy tailored to the customers environment, including the ability to roll back problematic updates."

CVE-2019-1311 is only marked as Important, but we believe this could have a huge impact if not addressed. It carries a CVSS score of 7.8 and, if exposed, could allow a sophisticated attack using the same credentials as the victim. What makes this ultra-important for IT departments, is that in order to exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would only have to convince a user to open a specially crafted .WIM file. If you are concerned about moving to newer versions of Windows 10 and being vulnerable to the same attack, we recommend this update be prioritized.

Jun 2, 2020

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Jun 2, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jun 2, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Jun 2, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Jun 2, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
