CVE-2024-30080: Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) RCE

This vulnerability exists due to a Use-After-Free condition in Microsoft Message Queuing that could allow an authenticated threat actor to execute remote code on a vulnerable system. 

However, to exploit this vulnerability, the threat actor must send a specially crafted malicious MSMQ packet to an MSMQ server, which will execute remote code on the server.

This vulnerability existed in multiple Windows Server and Windows OS versions, including Windows Server 2008, 2012, 2016, 2022, Windows 10 22H2, 21H2, and Windows 11 21H2, 22H2, and 23H2. Microsoft has categorized this vulnerability as (Critical).

CVE-2024-30078: Windows Wi-Fi Driver RCE

This vulnerability exists due to improper input validation, which could allow an unauthenticated threat actor to send malicious networking packets to an adjacent system consisting of a Wi-Fi networking adapter, resulting in remote code execution on the system.

However, to exploit this vulnerability, a threat actor must be within the target system’s range to send and receive radio transmissions.

This vulnerability also existed in multiple Windows products, including Windows Server 2019, 2022, 2008, and 2012, and Windows 10 22H2, 21H2, and Windows 11 21H2, 22H2, and 23H2.

Users of these products should upgrade their Windows to the latest versions to prevent threat actors from exploiting these vulnerabilities.
