Microsoft patches wormable Windows 10 ‘SMBGhost’ flaw – Naked Security


What’s the difference between a scheduled security update and one that’s out-of-band?

In the case of the critical Windows 10 Server Message Block (SMB) vulnerability (CVE-2020-0796) left unpatched in March’s otherwise bumper Windows Patch Tuesday update, the answer is two days.

That’s how long it took Microsoft to change its mind about releasing a fix after news of the remote code execution (RCE) flaw leaked in now-deleted vendor posts and word spread to customers. It even gained a nickname – ‘SMBGhost’ – in honour of its elusive status.

It wasn’t simply that word had slipped out about an unpatched flaw but the seriousness of the flaw itself, with one of the leaked advisories describing it as ‘wormable,’ in other words able to spread very rapidly.
