PATCH NOW: April 2021 Exchange Server Security Updates

Here we go again 🙁 !!

Microsoft has released security updates for vulnerabilities found in:

  • Exchange Server 2013
  • Exchange Server 2016
  • Exchange Server 2019

These updates are available for the following specific builds of Exchange Server:

IMPORTANT: If manually installing security updates, you must install .msp from elevated command prompt (see Known Issues in update KB article).

  • Exchange Server 2013 CU23
  • Exchange Server 2016 CU19 and CU20
  • Exchange Server 2019 CU8 and CU9

Vulnerabilities addressed in the April 2021 security updates were responsibly reported to Microsoft by a security partner. Although they are not aware of any active exploits in the wild, their recommendation is to install these updates immediately to protect your environment.

These vulnerabilities affect Microsoft Exchange Server. Exchange Online customers are already protected and do not need to take any action.

Use the Exchange Server Health Checker script, which can be downloaded from GitHub (use the latest release), to inventory your servers. Running this script will tell you if any of your Exchange Servers are behind on updates (CUs and SUs).
