Phase 3 of Windows hardening campaign begins – see “Heads Up” below. The patch for CVE-2023-32019 is not enabled by default and requires additional steps – see “FYI” below. New SSU for Windows Server 8.1, 2012/2012R2


Disclosed: None

Exploited: None


Heads Up! Phase 3 of Windows DCOM authentication hardening and Netjoin: domain join hardening.

“Starting June 2023, Enforcement mode will be enabled on all Windows domain controllers and will block vulnerable connections from non-compliant devices.  At that time, you will not be able to disable the update, but may move back to the Compatibility mode setting.”

KB5028407: How to manage the vulnerability associated with CVE-2023-32019

Our Recommendation: Proceed with caution. The CVSS score is a relatively low 4.7 and the vulnerability is not being actively exploited. Check the KB page for Known Issues that may surface.  Test on a few non-production machines first. ClubMSP will post a script for the registry changes.
