The unscheduled security update effectively addresses two “important”-severity flaws in Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.1.

Microsoft has released its out-of-band security update addressing two high-severity elevation-of-privilege (EoP) bugs. Both the bugs exist in a service called Windows Remote Access, which offers remote-access capabilities to client applications on computers having running Windows.

Both flaws were originally disclosed back on Aug. 11, during Microsoft’s regularly scheduled Patch Tuesday updates, where the giant patched a total of 120 vulnerabilities. During those updates, fixes for the two flaws which were issued for Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows Server 2019, 2016, 2012, and 2008, as well as Windows Servers.
