Microsoft has released their monthly set of security updates designed to address vulnerabilities. This month’s release addresses 54 vulnerabilities with 19 of them rated critical, 32 rated important, and 3 rated moderate. Impacted products include Edge, .NET Framework,  Internet Explorer, Office,  and Windows.

One that caught my attention was the RCE which affects the Windows Search service and may allow an unauthenticated attacker to take control over the target system through a SMB connection giving him the possibility to install programs, view, change or delete data or create new accounts with full user rights.
