Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-013 - Critical

Security Update for Microsoft Graphics Component (4013075)

Published: March 14, 2017 | Updated: May 9, 2017

Version: 3.0

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Skype for Business, Microsoft Lync, and Microsoft Silverlight. The most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user either visits a specially crafted website or opens a specially crafted document. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

This security update is rated Critical for:

  • All supported releases of Microsoft Windows
  • Affected editions of Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010
  • Affected editions of Skype for Business 2016, Microsoft Lync 2013, and Microsoft Lync 2010
  • Affected editions of Silverlight

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting how the software handles objects in memory.

For more information, see the Affected Software and Vulnerability Severity Ratings section.

For more information about this update, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 4013075.

The following software versions or editions are affected. Versions or editions that are not listed are either past their support life cycle or are not affected. To determine the support life cycle for your software version or edition, see Microsoft Support Lifecycle.

The severity ratings indicated for each affected software assume the potential maximum impact of the vulnerability. For information regarding the likelihood, within 30 days of this security bulletin’s release, of the exploitability of the vulnerability in relation to its severity rating and security impact, please see the Exploitability Index in the March bulletin summary.

Why is security update 4012583 in this bulletin also denoted in MS17-011? 
Why is security update 4012497 in this bulletin also denoted in MS17-018? 
Security update 4012583 is also denoted in MS17-011, and 4012497 is also denoted in MS17-018 for supported releases of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 due to the way fixes for vulnerabilities affecting particular products are consolidated. Because bulletins are broken out by the vulnerabilities being addressed, not by the update package being released, it is possible for separate bulletins, each addressing distinctly different vulnerabilities, to list the same update package as the vehicle for providing their respective fixes. This is frequently the case with cumulative updates for products, such as Internet Explorer or Silverlight, where singular security updates address different security vulnerabilities in separate bulletins.

Note Users do not need to install identical security updates that ship with multiple bulletins more than once.

There are multiple update packages available for some of the affected software. Do I need to install all the updates listed in the Affected Software table for the software? 
Yes. Customers should apply all updates offered for the software installed on their systems. If multiple updates apply, they can be installed in any order.

Do I need to install these security updates in a particular sequence? 
No. Multiple updates for a given system can be applied in any sequence.

I am running Office 2010, which is listed as affected software. Why am I not being offered the update? 
The update, KB3127958 (Ogl.dll), is not applicable to Office 2010 on Windows Vista and later versions of Windows because the vulnerable code is not present.

I am being offered this update for software that is not specifically indicated as being affected in the Affected Software and Vulnerability Severity Ratings table. Why am I being offered this update? 
When updates address vulnerable code that exists in a component that is shared between multiple Microsoft Office products or shared between multiple versions of the same Microsoft Office product, the update is considered to be applicable to all supported products and versions that contain the vulnerable component.

For example, when an update applies to Microsoft Office 2007 products, only Microsoft Office 2007 may be specifically listed in the Affected Software table. However, the update could apply to Microsoft Word 2007, Microsoft Excel 2007, Microsoft Visio 2007, Microsoft Compatibility Pack, Microsoft Excel Viewer, or any other Microsoft Office 2007 product that is not specifically listed in the Affected Software table. Furthermore, when an update applies to Microsoft Office 2010 products, only Microsoft Office 2010 may be specifically listed in the Affected Software table. However, the update could apply to Microsoft Word 2010, Microsoft Excel 2010, Microsoft Visio 2010, Microsoft Visio Viewer, or any other Microsoft Office 2010 product that is not specifically listed in the Affected Software table.

For more information on this behavior and recommended actions, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 830335. For a list of Microsoft Office products an update may apply to, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article associated with the specific update.

Are there any prerequisites for any of the updates offered in this bulletin for affected editions of Microsoft Lync 2013 (Skype for Business)? 
Yes. Customers running affected editions of Microsoft Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) must first install the 2965218 update for Office 2013 released in April, 2015, and then the 3039779 security update released in May, 2015. For more information about these two prerequisite updates, see:

Why is the Lync 2010 Attendee (user level install) update only available from the Microsoft Download Center? 
Microsoft is releasing the update for Lync 2010 Attendee (user level install) to the Microsoft Download Center only. Because the user level installation of Lync 2010 Attendee is handled through a Lync session, distribution methods such as automatic updating are not appropriate for this type of installation scenario.

Does this release contain any additional security-related changes to functionality? 
Yes. In addition to the security updates that address the vulnerabilities described in this bulletin, Microsoft is releasing an update that replaces certain third party libraries which were used by Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, and all versions of Windows 10. This update provides the same functionality in a more secure and reliable way.

Multiple Windows GDI Elevation of Privilege Vulnerabilities

Elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the way that the Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could run arbitrary code in kernel mode. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application that could exploit these vulnerabilities and take control of an affected system.

The update addresses these vulnerabilities by correcting how GDI handles objects in memory and by preventing instances of unintended user-mode privilege elevation.

Windows Graphics Component Information Disclosure Vulnerability – CVE-2017-0038

An information disclosure vulnerability exists when the Windows GDI component improperly discloses the contents of its memory. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could obtain information to further compromise the user’s system.

There are multiple ways an attacker could exploit the vulnerability, such as by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document, or by convincing a user to visit an untrusted webpage.

The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows GDI component handles objects in memory.

Multiple GDI+ Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities

Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exists in the way that the Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) handles objects in memory, allowing an attacker to retrieve information from a targeted system. By itself, the information disclosure does not allow arbitrary code execution; however, it could allow arbitrary code to be run if the attacker uses it in combination with another vulnerability.

To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker would have to log on to an affected system and run a specially crafted application.

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting how GDI handles memory addresses.

Multiple Microsoft Color Management Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities

Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist in the way that the Color Management Module (ICM32.dll) handles objects in memory. These vulnerabilities allow an attacker to retrieve information to bypass usermode ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) on a targeted system. By itself, the information disclosures do not allow arbitrary code execution; however, they could allow arbitrary code to be run if the attacker uses it in combination with another vulnerability.

In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit the vulnerability and then convince users to view the website. An attacker would have no way to force users to view the attacker-controlled content. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by getting them to click a link in an email or Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website, or by opening an attachment sent through email.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Color Management Module handles objects in memory.

Multiple Graphics Component Remote Code Execution Vulnerabilities

Remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to the way the Windows Graphics Component handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could take control of the affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

There are multiple ways an attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities.

  • In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit this vulnerability and then convince a user to view the website. An attacker would have no way to force users to view the attacker-controlled content. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website, or by opening an attachment sent through email.
  • In a file sharing attack scenario, an attacker could provide a specially crafted document file that is designed to exploit these vulnerabilities, and then convince a user to open the document file.

Note that for affected Microsoft Office products, the Preview Pane is an attack vector.
