DCOM Hardening

Over the past few days, and especially today, there have been a number of requests for information regarding Microsoft’s DCOM hardening (https://msrc.microsoft.com/update-guide/vulnerability/CVE-2021-26414 ).


It looks like each GE Digital product is going through the process of addressing this issue specifically and directly.  For example, CIMPLICITY released a SIM for CIMPLICITY 11.1 (CIMPLICITY 11.1 SIM 3 ka48a000000bx6RAAQ | GE Customer Center) that deals with Microsoft’s DCOM hardening directly.


At this time, CIMPLICITY 11.1 is the only product and version with a known update to address this potential issue.  If the pattern holds, it is likely each product needs to be individually evaluated and SIMS released to address the issue as required.
