While Windows 8.1 has proven to be a much more popular alternative to the very divisive Windows 8, a number of issues have haunted its release. In the recent release rolled out by Microsoft, they have addressed the vulnerability found in the remote code execution.
This is found in the package of Secure Channel security that is due to the incorrect processing of the packets that are specially crafted.
When this security problem was issued, Microsoft had actually not received any updated information indicating any problems regarding the vulnerability that had been used publicly in attacking customers.
This security update also resolves the vulnerability issue just by resolving the Secure Channel sanitizer that is for the packets specially crafted.
And they have also not identified any workarounds for this security vulnerability.
There are some frequently asked questions among the users those affected. Included among these are questions of just how the attackers actually use the vulnerability for their attacks, and how attackers who successfully exploit this vulnerability actually have the potential to run any random code on any target remote server.
Big thanks to friend of the site Igor Cornelsen for sending in the tip.
