Code: Select all
jscript.dll zero day microsoft
and the fact that Microsoft has described only a mitigation workaround for Windows 7 users after extended support ended in January 2020,
it occurs to me that as TextPipe has a special filter for running JScript language,
to ask whether this uses the vulnerable jscript.dll or the non-vulnerable jscript9.dll ?
If the latter, there should be no serious consequences.
If the former, it would likely be the case that Windows 7 users that implemented the Microsoft workaround
may encounter unexpected issues when seeking to use a filter that runs JScript.
If this were the case, then TextPipe ought to be updated to use jscript9.dll and not jscript.dll
