​Welcome back to this month’s Patch Tuesday. This month includes patches for 79 vulnerabilities, including one that is actively being exploited in the wild. There is also an advisory from Microsoft detailing a vulnerability in Intel CPU speculative execution that came to light only a few hours before the release of the patches. The new speculative execution vulnerability is dubbed “Zombieload” and is similar to “Spectre” and “Meltdown” from last year. Microsoft has released mitigation instructions for CVE-2019-0863, “Zombieload”, in it’s advisory (ADV190013).
