Edge[German]Microsoft has updated the Edge browser in the stable channel to version 103.0.1264.44 as of June 30, 2022. It is a maintenance update that fixes the Elevation of Privilege vulnerability CVE-2022-33680, which is rated as critical. And this build fixes group policy issues, some administrators are facing. But I got reports about a download bug.

An attacker could host a specially crafted website designed to exploit the vulnerability through Microsoft Edge and then convince a user to view the website. In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force a user to view the attacker-controlled content. Instead, the attacker would have to persuade the user to take an action, usually by sending an email or instant message, or by getting the user to open an attachment sent via email.

The release notes don't give any details about the update, but Edge 103.0.1264.44 is based on Chromium 103.0.5060.53, according to this page. The browser should update automatically, but can also be downloaded from the Edge site.

GPO issues fixed

I had addressed it only within my German blog post Edge Stable 103.0.1264.37 macht Gruppenrichtlinien kaputt (Chrome-Bug). Some administrator has reported, that the group policies in Edge no longer work properly for individual users. There is also a discussion within the Techcommunity at Microsoft. It was known from the Edge product manager, that Microsoft is working on a fix, but no release date was given. German blog reader Sascha Anders wrote here:

Since update 103.0.1264.44 (just started) no more problems. Seems to be fixed.

Within the Techcommunity thread Eric Lawrence (product manager at Microsoft) writes:

Yes, the fix is checked in and awaiting the next respin/release (103.0.1264.44).

Can others confirm this?

A download bug

Addendum: Feedback from my German readers shows, that Edge has a bug described within the article Microsoft Edge 103.0.1264.44 download bug: .crdownload files remains.
