CVE-2021-31199, CVE-2021-31201, CVE-2021-31955 and CVE-2021-31956.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Microsoft products, the
most severe of which could allow for arbitrary code execution.
A full list of all vulnerabilities can be found at the link below:
Successful exploitation of the most severe of these vulnerabilities
could result in an attacker gaining the same privileges as the logged-on
user. Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker
could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new
accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to
have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those
who operate with administrative user rights.

Microsoft to vulnerable systems immediately after appropriate testing.
* Run all software as a non-privileged user (one without administrative
rights) to diminish the effects of a successful attack.
* Remind all users not to visit untrusted websites or follow links
provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
* Inform and educate users regarding threats posed by hypertext links
contained in emails or attachments especially from untrusted sources.
* Apply the Principle of Least Privilege to all systems and services.
