Feds issue emergency order for agencies to patch critical Windows flaw

Close-up photograph of computer networking components.

The US Department of Homeland Security is giving federal agencies until midnight on Tuesday to patch a critical Windows vulnerability that can make it easy for attackers to become all-powerful administrators with free rein to create accounts, infect an entire network with malware, and carry out similarly disastrous actions.

Zerologon, as researchers have dubbed the vulnerability, allows malicious hackers to instantly gain unauthorized control of the Active Directory. An Active Directory stores data relating to users and computers that are authorized to use email, file sharing, and other sensitive services inside large organizations. Zerologon is tracked as CVE-2020-1472. Microsoft published a patch last Tuesday.

An unacceptable risk

The flaw, which is present in all supported Windows server versions, carries a critical severity rating from Microsoft as well as a maximum of 10 under the Common Vulnerability Scoring System. Further raising that stakes was the release by multiple researchers of proof-of-concept

Windows Server: Patch this critical flaw now says Homeland Security in emergency warning

Government agencies in the US have until today to patch a Windows Server vulnerability that could give hackers control over federal networks.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has given system administrators until today (21 September) to patch a critical vulnerability in Windows Server that could allow an attacker to hijack federal networks, via a flaw in the Netlogon authentication system.

On 18 September, the DHS’s cybersecurity division issued an emergency directive giving government agencies a four-day deadline to patch the CVE-2020-1472 vulnerability, also known as¬†Zerologon, citing the “unacceptable risk” it posed federal networks.

The flaw enables an unauthorized user to assume control of a network via a flaw in the Microsoft Windows Netlogon Remote Protocol (MS-NRPC), by simply sending a series of Netlogon messages with input fields filled with zeros.

Once compromised, an attacker could make themselves domain admin and reset the domain control password, effectively giving them
