Microsoft Security Advisory (2880823)
Deprecation of SHA-1 Hashing Algorithm for Microsoft Root Certificate Program
- http://technet.micro...dvisory/2880823
Nov 12, 2013 - "Microsoft is announcing a policy change to the Microsoft Root Certificate Program. The new policy will no longer allow root certificate authorities to issue X.509 certificates using the SHA-1 hashing algorithm for the purposes of SSL and code signing after January 1, 2016. Using the SHA-1 hashing algorithm in digital certificates could allow an attacker to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks.
Recommendation: Microsoft recommends that certificate authorities no longer sign newly generated certificates using the SHA-1 hashing algorithm and begin migrating to SHA-2. Microsoft also recommends that customers replace their SHA-1 certificates with SHA-2 certificates at the earliest opportunity. Please see the Suggested Actions section of this advisory for more information..."

Nov 12, 2013 - "Microsoft is announcing the availability of an update for all supported releases of Windows to address a vulnerability in how DirectAccess authenticates DirectAccess server connections to DirectAccess clients. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could use a specially crafted DirectAccess server to pose as a legitimate DirectAccess Server in order to establish connections with legitimate DirectAccess clients. The attacker-controlled system, appearing to be a legitimate server, could cause a client system to automatically authenticate and connect with the attacker-controlled system, allowing the attacker to intercept the target user's network traffic and potentially determine their encrypted domain credentials. Microsoft is not aware of any active attacks that are exploiting this vulnerability as of the release of this advisory.
Recommendation: Microsoft recommends that customers apply the update immediately using update management software, or by checking for updates using the Microsoft Update service.
Note: In addition to installing the update, additional administrative steps are required to be protected from the vulnerability described in this advisory. Please see the Suggested Actions section of this advisory for more information..."

MS Security Advisory (2916652)
Improperly Issued Digital Certificates Could Allow Spoofing
- http://technet.micro...dvisory/2916652
Dec 9, 2013 - "Microsoft is aware of an improperly issued subordinate CA certificate that could be used in attempts to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks. The subordinate CA certificate was improperly issued by the Directorate General of the Treasury (DG Trésor), subordinate to the Government of France CA (ANSSI), which is a CA present in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Store. This issue affects all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. Microsoft is not currently aware of attacks related to this issue. The improperly issued subordinate CA certificate has been misused to issue SSL certificates for multiple sites, including Google web properties. These SSL certificates could be used to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks against several Google web properties. The subordinate CA certificate may also have been used to issue certificates for other, currently unknown sites, which could be subject to similar attacks. To help protect customers from potentially fraudulent use of this digital certificate, Microsoft is updating the Certificate Trust list (CTL) for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows to remove the trust of certificates that are causing this issue. For more information about these certificates, see the Frequently Asked Questions section of this advisory... in addition to addressing the certificates described in this advisory, this update is cumulative and includes digital certificates described in previous advisories..."

Microsoft Security Advisory (2871690)
Update to Revoke Non-compliant UEFI Modules
- http://technet.micro...dvisory/2871690
Updated: Feb 27, 2014 Ver: 2.0 - "Microsoft is announcing the availability of an update for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 that revokes the digital signatures for nine private, third-party UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) modules that could be loaded during UEFI Secure Boot. When the update is applied, the affected UEFI modules will no longer be trusted and will no longer load on systems where UEFI Secure Boot is enabled. The affected UEFI modules consist of specific Microsoft-signed modules that are either not in compliance with our certification program or their authors have requested that the packages be revoked. At the time of this release, these UEFI modules are not known to be available publicly...
... The -rereleased- update* addresses an issue where specific third-party BIOS versions did not properly validate the signature of the original update... The 2871777 update** is a -prerequisite- and must be applied before this update can be installed..."

Microsoft Security Advisory (2862152)
Vulnerability in DirectAccess and IPsec Could Allow Security Feature Bypass
- http://technet.micro...dvisory/2862152
Published: Nov 12, 2013 | Updated: Feb 28, 2014 Ver: 1.1 - "Microsoft is announcing the availability of an update for all supported releases of Windows to address a vulnerability in how server connections are authenticated to clients in either DirectAccess or IPsec site-to-site tunnels. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could use a specially crafted DirectAccess server to pose as a legitimate DirectAccess Server in order to establish connections with legitimate DirectAccess clients. The attacker-controlled system, appearing to be a legitimate server, could cause a client system to automatically authenticate and connect with the attacker-controlled system, allowing the attacker to intercept the target user's network traffic and potentially determine their encrypted domain credentials. Microsoft is not aware of any active attacks that are exploiting this vulnerability as of the release of this advisory.
Recommendation: Microsoft recommends that customers apply the update immediately using update management software, or by checking for updates using the Microsoft Update service*.
Note: In addition to installing the update, additional administrative steps are required to be protected from the vulnerability described in this advisory. Please see the Suggested Actions section of this advisory for more information... customers must also follow the configuration guidance provided in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2862152** to be fully protected from the vulnerability..."
• V1.0 (November 12, 2013): Advisory published.
• V1.1 (February 28, 2014): Advisory -revised- to announce a detection change in the 2862152 update for Windows 8.1 for 32-bit Systems, Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows RT 8.1. This is a detection change only. There were no changes to the update files. Customers who have already successfully updated their systems do not need to take any action.
