This security update patches two vulnerabilities in the Microsoft .NET Framework. The more severe of the vulnerabilities could allow spoofing if a .NET application receives a maliciously crafted XML file. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could modify the contents of an XML file without invalidating the file's signature and could gain access to endpoint functions as if they were an authenticated user.
A complete discussion of the different vulnerability categories, including case studies of vulnerable SCADA HMIs. The paper also provides a guide for vulnerability researchers, as well as vendors on quick and efficient bug discovery.
