'Patch Tuesday' forecast for July 2022

Since the major updates were implemented in June, we expect to have a summer break in July. NTLM relay attacks have recently been subject to 'patching'. However, the next 'patching' cycles should be monitored, given that one type of attack (DFSCoerce) remains potentially open. The implications of the NTLM vulnerability are great, given that they enable the takeover of admin accounts, and thus the takeover of the entire Windows domain.

Additionally, there seems to be a lot of confusion about the Internet Explorer retirement last month. Many expected it to be disabled or uninstalled from those systems that are no longer supported.

With the exception of perhaps some major Adobe updates for Acrobat and Reader, it should be a fairly quiet Tuesday in July with the standard Microsoft releases.
