Title: How to fix the MSDT-Vulnerability
Post by: Theo Gottwald on June 02, 2022, 10:27:41 PM
As we all know windows has a lot of builtin weakness, originally made so that the US-Secret Services can access anybody's Computer.
Now if these get public then we need to fix them. The latest vulnerability is crazy because someone can hack your computer by sending you a
file - like a word document. AND YOU DO NOT even need to CLICK  ON IT!

Here is a description in German:

Now you can wait until on Juni 22 you get an official Patch from Microsoft - but its half a month until then.
Or you disable some Microsoft Diagnostics stuff thats mostly useless anyway.

You need a Batch File wit this content. Run it as ADMINISTRATOR.
It will place a File on your C-Drive.  Using this File, you can use to undo the change after you have installed the Patch.

Here is the Batch-File Content you need to run it as Administrator to remove the vulnerability.

Code: [Select]
reg export HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ms-msdt c:\msdt_backup.reg
reg delete HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ms-msdt /f
