Original post

CVE-2021-42321 is an RCE vulnerability in Microsoft Exchange Server. The flaw exists due to the improper validation of command-let (cmdlet) arguments. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need to be authenticated to a vulnerable Exchange Server. Microsoft says they are aware of “limited targeted attacks” using this vulnerability in the wild. Additionally, this appears to be the same vulnerability in Exchange Server that was exploited at the Tianfu Cup, a Chinese cybersecurity contest.
