Only 62 CVEs discovered in December during Patch Tuesday

Some may remember how back in October the number of CVEs finally dropped, only to go back up again in November, which is all the more reasons to see what December will bring.

Take a closer look at this quick rundown on the number of CVEs that have been tracked down this year:

Number of detected CVEs is under 100 for the second time in 2020

Vulnerabilities found in Adobe products

As far as Adobe-related CVEs are concerned, only 4 were detected that affected Adobe Prelude, Experience Manager, and Lightroom.

Of the 4 detected CVEs detected, only the one that affected Lightroom was rated Critical.

Vulnerabilities found in Microsoft products

As always, CVEs that targeted Microsoft products are more numerous, and the affect the following services:

Microsoft Windows, Edge (EdgeHTML-based), ChakraCore, Microsoft Office and Office Services and Web Apps, Exchange Server, Azure DevOps, Microsoft Dynamics, Visual Studio, Azure SDK, and Azure Sphere.

Of the 58 detected CVEs, they were rated as follows:

  • 9 are rated as Critical
  • 46 are rated as Important
  • 3 are rated Moderate in severity

Which were some of the most severe CVEs?

Despite being few in numbers, a few CVEs did stand out, either because of their severity, or because of the way they acted.

All in all, here are some of the most important CVEs discovered this month:

December seems to be the month with the fewest detected CVEs in the entirety of 2020, bringing the grand total for this year to 1250.
