Micro Patch for Windows 0-Day file write vulnerability

In Windows there is a Zero-Day-Exploit, which allows you to overwrite files without permission. 0patch provides a temporary micro-patch for this bug after Microsoft did not patch it in January 2019.


At the end of the year a new 0-Day bug in Windows has became known by a hacker using the alias SandboxEscaper. The vulnerability allows attackers to overwrite files (see my blog post Windows 10: 0-day bug enabled file overwrite).

Now the provider 0patch has announced the availability of a micro-patch for Windows on Twitter. These micro patches can be downloaded from this website by registered users. (via)
