Welcome to the June 2024 Patch Tuesday recap. I just got back from camping over the weekend, and I learned something very important: I enjoy dealing with virtual bugs much more than I enjoy dealing with real bugs. 

With that important note out of the way, let’s take a look at what bugs and vulnerabilities Microsoft squashed this month. 

  • Total exploits patched: 51 

  • Critical patches: 1 

  • Already known or exploited: 1 

Some highlights (or lowlights) 

The main highlight for this month would be that it’s a relatively light month for patches. In fact, our senior SOC analyst described this month’s patches as boring. But, if you’re like me, you like boring. Here are the highlights. 

  • CVE-2024-30080: Our highest-rated and only critical patch this month is CVE-2024-30080, which is a vulnerability affecting the Windows messaging queue. If that all sounds familiar, it’s probably because we’ve been getting these messaging queue vulnerabilities for a while now with no sure end in sight. Luckily, the remediation is simple enough: Install the official patch and you’re good to go … until next time. 

  • CVE-2024-30078: Coming in at a distant second with a base CVSS score of 8.8 is a Windows Wi-Fi driver remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability. While this vulnerability has a low attack complexity, it does require the bad actor to be within the proximity of a target system to send and receive radio transmissions. Not the scariest vulnerability since they have to be on your premises, but maybe look around the office building for any shady figures you don’t recognize. 

  • CVE-2024-30103: Our last highlight for the month is CVE-2024-30103. This vulnerability affects everybody’s favorite email client, Outlook. Under the right conditions, an attacker could create malicious DLL files. Fortunately, this vulnerability requires the attacker to be authenticated using valid Exchange credentials. And if an attacker has valid Exchange credentials, you’ve probably got more than just this issue to worry about.
