Microsoft February 2022 Patch Tuesday security updates addressed 51 flaws in multiple products including Microsoft Windows and Windows Components, Azure Data Explorer, Kestrel Web Server, Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based), Windows Codecs Library, Microsoft Dynamics, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Office and Office Components, Windows Hyper-V Server, SQL Server, Visual Studio Code, and Microsoft Teams.

It is interesting to note that this month, Microsoft did not address critical vulnerabilities. 50 vulnerabilities are rated Important and one is rated Moderate in severity.

None of the vulnerabilities addressed by Microsoft this month is listed as under active exploit, only one of them is listed as publicly known at the time of release.

Microsoft February 2022 Patch Tuesday also addressed a publicly disclosed Elevation of Privilege zero-day in Windows Kernel tracked as CVE-2022-21989.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow attackers to elevate their privileges and execute code or access resources at a higher integrity level than that of the AppContainer execution environment.

In order to exploit this flaw, an attacker needs to take additional actions prior to prepare the target environment.

The most severe issues addressed this month are:

CVE-2022-21984: Windows DNS Server Remote Code Execution VulnerabilityCVE-2022-22005: Microsoft SharePoint Server Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

both received a CVSS score of 8.8.
