FRISCO, TEXAS – JULY 03: A general view of the Microsoft logo during warm ups prior to the game between the 3 Headed Monsters and 3’s Company during BIG3 Week Three at Comerica Center on July 03, 2022 in Frisco, Texas.

Microsoft’s September 2022 Security Update revealed that there were 64 vulnerabilities that are present in the company’s systems, with five critical ones manifesting in its services. The company also said that it already released a patch to prevent these vulnerabilities from exploitation by threat actors who are only waiting to access users’ information or data.

There are common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) in Microsoft Windows, It also includes the security threats present in the following:

  • Azure 
  • Azure Arc
  • .NET 
  • Visual Studio 
  • .NET Framework
  • Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based)
  • Office 
  • Windows Defender
  • Linux Kernel

According to ZDNet, Microsoft previously revealed 141 CVEs from within its systems last August.

Microsoft System Vulnerability

Among the 64 vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s systems, reports claim that there is one that has been exploited already, but the software company already fixed this issue for the public. Users of the Microsoft system may have already seen the patch or were alerted by the Redmond giant regarding this security update for the continued protection of their computers.

It is recommended to patch these problems to avoid further access and exploits from present threat actors hoping to steal from users.

Microsoft’s System

Microsoft is one of the most used computer systems in the world, and the operating system faces a lot of threats and vulnerabilities from multiple hackers aiming to exploit users of the company’s technology. Despite having Windows Defender, there are still other underlying problems that get recognition later on, with an example of a false-positive threat known as “Behavior:Win32/Hive.ZY.”

The company also serves as a watchdog for other exploits seen in the tech industry, particularly with its recent detection of the one-click exploit on TikTok’s systems. Threat actors insert their codes, malware, and viruses among many systems in the world, waiting for the right opportunity to prey on unsuspecting victims.

The world is already surrounded by technology, and it brings the world significant access to many systems, as well as threats that loom over it.

Microsoft’s latest security patch centers on the many threats against its systems which makes it a significant problem that users need to address on their computers. Additionally, this patch is a need to avoid exploitation for further problems from different threat actors waiting around in its systems to execute their malicious plans.
