Microsoft is announcing the release of updates to address multiple vulnerabilities found in the Autodesk FBX library which is integrated into certain Microsoft applications. Details about the vulnerabilities can be found here – https://www.autodesk.com/trust/security-advisories/adsk-sa-2020-0002

Remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft products that utilize the FBX library when processing specially crafted 3D content. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the local user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

To exploit the vulnerabilities, an attacker must send a specially crafted file containing 3D content to a user and convince them to open it.

The security updates address these vulnerabilities by correcting the way 3D content is handled by Microsoft software.
