NJCCIC Advisory: May 2024

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Microsoft products, the most severe of which could allow for remote code execution in the context of the logged on user. Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.
Government Risk Levels:
– Large and medium government entities: High
– Small government entities: Medium

This alert is provided by the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) Advisory to assist agencies, organizations, and individuals in guarding against the persistent malicious actions of cybercriminals.
