Microsoft Patch Tuesday – June 11th 2024

Critical Exploit (Remote Code Execution) in Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) Among 49 Vulnerabilities This Month in Microsoft Windows – But Thankfully No Zero-Days


“Patch Tuesday” is an unofficial term used to refer to the second Tuesday of each month, when Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle and others regularly release software patches for their software products. Critical security updates are occasionally released outside of the normal Patch Tuesday cycle, but these are known as “Out-of-band” releases.

Critical (CVSS 9+) Patches to Prioritise

The list of “Critical” vulnerabilities below are all those with a “CVSS” score of 9 or greater. This generally reflects a vulnerability that is critical risk, being both trivial to exploit, likely to be exploited, and which could cause great harm and damage if exploited:


Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) Remote Code Execution Vulnerability (CVE-2024-30080)

Only one critical vulnerability has been reported; a remote code execution vulnerability in the Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) component of Windows. This vulnerability can be exploited by an unauthenticated, remote attacker via specially crafted packet being sent to a vulnerable target. CVE-2024-30080 was assigned a CVSSv3 score of 9.8 and rated critical, with Microsoft rating the vulnerability as ‘Exploitation More Likely’.

CVE-2024-30080 marks the fourth remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in MSMQ that has been patched in 2024. Two of these vulnerabilities were resolved during the April Patch Tuesday update (CVE-2024-26232 and CVE-2024-26208), while another was addressed in the February Patch Tuesday release (CVE-2024-21363).
