Last Week’s Security news: PrintNightmare, Kaseya, Intune, Metasploit Docker escape

By sending an RpcAddPrinterDriverEx() RPC request, for example over SMB, a remote, authenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges on a vulnerable Windows system. And there is a public PoC exploit for this vulnerability published by the Chinese security firm Sangfor. And there is some strange story. It turns out that Sangfor published an exploit for the 0day vulnerability. But they thought this vulnerability (CVE-2021-1675) had already been patched as part of the June Micorosft Patch Tuesday. And then it turns out that this is a bug in the Microsoft patch. But Microsoft wrote that this is a different, new vulnerability CVE-2021-34527 and so there were no problems with the previous patch. In any case, a patch for this vulnerability has not yet been released and Microsoft is suggesting two Workarounds. Option 1 – Disable the Print Spooler service, Option 2 – Disable inbound remote printing through Group Policy. Do this first for Domain Controllers and other critical Windows servers. All versions of Windows contain the vulnerable code and are susceptible to exploitation. Also note that the new vulnerability has a flag Exploitation Detected on the MS site.
