    Qualys analysis: https://blog.qualys.com/laws-of-vuln...-adobe-patches
    Sep 12, 2017 - "Today Microsoft released a fairly large batch of patches covering 81 vulnerabilities as part of September’s Patch Tuesday update, with 38 of them impacting Windows. Patches covering -27- of these vulnerabilities are labeled as -Critical- and -39- can result in Remote Code Execution (RCE). According to Microsoft, one vulnerability impacting HoloLens has a public exploit.
    Top priority for patching should go to CVE-2017-0161, an RCE vulnerability in NetBIOS that impacts both servers and workstations. For users of Microsoft’s DHCP server, priority should also be given to CVE-2017-8686, especially if using failover mode, due to another potential RCE.
    Out of the 26 vulnerabilities that are both Critical and RCE, -22- of them impact Microsoft’s browsers. Many of these vulnerabilities involve the Scripting Engine, which can impact both browsers and Microsoft Office, and should be considered for prioritizing for workstation-type systems that use email and access the internet via a browser. Adobe has also released patches covering 5 critical vulnerabilities, 2 of which are for Flash. The other patches are for Adobe ColdFusion and RoboHelp."

    ghacks.net: https://www.ghacks.net/2017/09/12/mi...-2017-release/

    Oct 10, 2017 - "... Our monthly series provides you with information on Microsoft's Patch Day. It features an overview of all security and non-security updates that Microsoft released since the last Patch day in September 2017. The monthly guide lists how different versions of Windows -- client and server -- and Microsoft's browsers Edge and Internet Explorer are affected. It features links to resources, direct download links for cumulative Windows updates, new and updated security advisories, and information on how to download the updates to Windows machines...
    Windows 7: 20 vulnerabilities of which 5 are rated critical, 15 important
    Windows 8.1: 23 vulnerabilities of which 6 are rated critical, 17 important
    Windows 10 version 1607: 29 vulnerabilities, 6 critical, 23 important

    Qualys analysis: https://blog.qualys.com/laws-of-vuln...ulnerabilities
    Oct 10, 2017 - "Today Microsoft released patches covering 62 vulnerabilities as part of August’s Patch Tuesday update, with 30 of them affecting Windows. Patches covering 28 of these vulnerabilities are labeled as Critical, and 33 can result in Remote Code Execution. According to Microsoft, a vulnerability in Microsoft Office is being actively exploited in the wild. Top priority for patching should go to a vulnerability in Microsoft Office, CVE-2017-11826, which Microsoft has ranked as “Important” is actively being exploited in the wild.
    Priority should also be given to CVE-2017-11771, which is a vulnerability in the Windows Search service. This is the fourth Patch Tuesday this year to feature a vulnerability in this service. As with the others, this vulnerability can be exploited remotely via SMB to take complete control of a system, and can impact both servers and workstations. While an exploit against this vulnerability can leverage SMB as an attack vector, this is not a vulnerability in SMB itself, and is not related to the recent SMB vulnerabilities leveraged by EternalBlue, WannaCry, and Petya.
    Also of note are two vulnerabilities in the Windows font library, CVE-2017-11762 and CVE-2017-11763, that can be exploited through a browser or malicious file, as well as a vulnerability in DNSAPI, CVE-2017-11779, that could allow a malicious DNS server to execute code on a client system.
    A vulnerability in certain TPM chips is addressed by ADV170012. This vulnerability is in the TPM chip itself, and not in Windows, but could result in weak cryptographic keys. These keys are used for BitLocker, Biometric auth, and other areas of Windows. The updates provide a workaround for the weak keys leveraging additional logging and an option to use software-derived keys. Full remediation requires a firmware update from the device manufacturer.
    As with several of the last Patch Tuesdays, the majority of the vulnerabilities in this month’s release involve the Scripting Engine, which can impact both browsers and Microsoft Office, and should be considered for prioritizing for workstation-type systems that use email and access the internet via a browser..."
