Hyper-V Powering Windows Features

December 2019

Hyper-V is Microsoft’s hardware virtualization technology that initially released with Windows Server 2008 to support server virtualization and has since become a core component of many Microsoft products and features. These features range from enhancing security to empowering developers to enabling the most compatible gaming console. Recent additions to this list include Windows Sandbox, Windows Defender Application Guard, System Guard and Advanced Threat Detection, Hyper-V Isolated-Containers, Windows Hypervisor Platform and Windows Subsystem for Linux 2. Additionally, applications using Hyper-V, such as Kubernetes for Windows and Docker Desktop, are also being introduced and improved.

As the scope of Windows virtualization has expanded to become an integral part of the operating system, many new OS capabilities have taken a dependency on Hyper-V. Consequently, this created compatibility issues with many popular third-party products that provide their own virtualization solutions, forcing users to choose between applications or losing OS functionality. Therefore, Microsoft has partnered extensively with key software vendors such as VMware, VirtualBox, and BlueStacks to provide updated solutions that directly leverage Microsoft virtualization technologies, eliminating the need for customers to make this trade-off.

Windows Sandbox is an isolated, temporary, desktop environment where you can run untrusted software without the fear of lasting impact to your PC.  Any software installed in Windows Sandbox stays only in the sandbox and cannot affect your host. Once Windows Sandbox is closed, the entire state, including files, registry changes and the installed software, are permanently deleted. Windows Sandbox is built using the same technology we developed to securely operate multi-tenant Azure services like Azure Functions and provides integration with Windows 10 and support for UI based applications.

Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) is a Windows 10 security feature introduced in the Fall Creators Update (Version 1709 aka RS3) that protects against targeted threats using Microsoft’s Hyper-V virtualization technology. WDAG augments Windows virtualization based security capabilities to prevent zero-day kernel vulnerabilities from compromising the host operating system. WDAG also enables enterprise users of Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer (IE) protection from zero-day kernel vulnerabilities by isolating a user’s untrusted browser sessions from the host operating system. Security conscious enterprises use WDAG to lock down their enterprise host while allowing their users to browse non-enterprise content.

Application Guard isolates untrusted sites using a new instance of Windows at the hardware layer.

In order to protect critical resources such as the Windows authentication stack, single sign-on tokens, the Windows Hello biometric stack, and the Virtual Trusted Platform Module, a system’s firmware and hardware must be trustworthy. Windows Defender System Guard reorganizes the existing Windows 10 system integrity features under one roof and sets up the next set of investments in Windows security. It’s designed to make these security guarantees:

  • To protect and maintain the integrity of the system as it starts up
  • To validate that system integrity has truly been maintained through local and remote attestation

Detecting and stopping attacks that tamper with kernel-mode agents at the hypervisor level is a critical component of the unified endpoint protection platform in Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Microsoft Defender ATP). It’s not without challenges, but the deep integration of Windows Defender Antivirus with hardware-based isolation capabilities allows the detection of artifacts of such attacks.

Hyper-V plays an important role in the container development experience on Windows 10. Since Windows containers require a tight coupling between its OS version and the host that it runs on, Hyper-V is used to encapsulate containers on Windows 10 in a transparent, lightweight virtual machine. Colloquially, we call these “Hyper-V Isolated Containers”. These containers are run in VMs that have been specifically optimized for speed and efficiency when it comes to host resource usage. Hyper-V Isolated Containers most notably allow developers to develop for multiple Linux distros and Windows at the same time and are managed just like any container developer would expect as they integrate with all the same tooling (e.g. Docker).

The Windows Hypervisor Platform (WHP) adds an extended user-mode API for third-party virtualization stacks and applications to create and manage partitions at the hypervisor level, configure memory mappings for the partition, and create and control execution of virtual processors. The primary value here is that third-party virtualization software (such as VMware) can co-exist with Hyper-V and other Hyper-V based features. Virtualization-Based Security (VBS) is a recent technology that has enabled this co-existence.

WHP provides an API similar to that of Linux’s KVM and macOS’s Hypervisor Framework, and is currently leveraged on projects by QEMU and VMware.

This diagram provides a high-level overview of a third-party architecture.

WSL 2 is the newest version of the architecture that powers the Windows Subsystem for Linux to run ELF64 Linux binaries on Windows. Its feature updates include increased file system performance as well as added full system call compatibility. This new architecture changes how these Linux binaries interact with Windows and your computer’s hardware, but still provides the same user experience as in WSL 1 (the current widely available version). The main difference being that WSL 2 uses a new architecture, which is primarily running a true Linux kernel inside a virtual machine. Individual Linux distros can be run either as a WSL 1 distro, or as a WSL 2 distro, can be upgraded or downgraded at any time, and can run WSL 1 and WSL 2 distros side by side.

Kubernetes started officially supporting Windows Server in production with the release of Kubernetes version 1.14 (in March 2019). Windows-based applications constitute a large portion of the workloads in many organizations. Windows containers provide a modern way for these Windows applications to use DevOps processes and cloud native patterns. Kubernetes has become the de facto standard for container orchestration; hence this support enables a vast ecosystem of Windows applications to not only leverage the power of Kubernetes, but also to leverage the robust and growing ecosystem surrounding it. Organizations with investments in both Windows-based applications and Linux-based applications no longer need to look for separate orchestrators to manage their workloads, leading to increased operational efficiencies across their deployments. The engineering that supported this release relied upon open source and community led approaches that originally brought Windows Server containers to Windows Server 2016.

These components and tools have allowed Microsoft’s Hyper-V technology to introduce new ways of enabling customer experiences. Windows Sandbox, Windows Defender Application Guard, System Guard and Advanced Threat Detection, Hyper-V Isolated-Containers, Windows Hypervisor Platform and Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 are all new Hyper-V components that ensure the security and flexibility customers should expect from Windows. The coordination of applications using Hyper-V, such as Kubernetes for Windows and Docker Desktop also represent Microsoft’s dedication to customer needs, which will continue to stand for our main sentiment going forward.

December Patch Tuesday resolves Windows zero-day

Administrators got an early holiday present with a fairly light patching workload on December Patch Tuesday, but they will have one Windows zero-day to wrap up as soon as possible.

Microsoft corrected 36 vulnerabilities on December Patch Tuesday in Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Services and Web Apps, SQL Server, Visual Studio and Skype for Business.

The Win32k elevation of privilege vulnerability (CVE-2019-1458) is rated as important and is being actively exploited in the wild. This Windows zero-day, discovered by Kaspersky Lab researchers, affects most supported versions of Microsoft’s operating system on both the client and server side. The attacker needs authentication to access the system to run malicious code in kernel mode to take control of a system. The attacker could then perform a range of tasks, including create new accounts with full user rights and install programs.

Administrators who base their patching priority on a combination of vendor severity and the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) score might miss these types of vulnerabilities if they don’t account for additional factors. CVE-2019-1458 has a CVSS score of 7.8.

Chris Goettl, director of product management and security, IvantiChris Goettl

“If you’re not patching vulnerabilities rated important and above with a CVSS score lower than 8.0, then you could miss things being actively exploited,” said Chris Goettl, director of product management and security at Ivanti, a security and IT management vendor based in South Jordan, Utah.

If you’re not patching vulnerabilities rated important and above with a CVSS score lower than 8.0, then you could miss things being actively exploited.
Chris GoettlDirector of product management and security, Ivanti

Multiple zero-day bugs this year met the same criteria as this most recent Windows zero-day, so companies need to make sure they examine additional metadata with the vulnerabilities as they formulate their patching prioritization, Goettl said.

Microsoft closes multiple Git-Visual Studio flaws

Microsoft resolved several security issues related to Git functionality and Microsoft Visual Studio. The company corrected six bugs (CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1354 and CVE-2019-1387) with most of them remote-code execution flaws rated critical. Companies that use Visual Studio for software development and connect to Git repositories will want to apply the December Patch Tuesday updates in short order.

Goettl said an enterprising attacker could do some investigative work to gather email addresses for developers in an organization, then construct a spear-phishing campaign to direct developers to a malicious repository that appears legitimate. Then the attacker could gain administrative rights to modify code in the organization’s development environment. While this scenario is theoretical, Goettl said, it’s not that far-fetched.

“Vendors are becoming a significant target as a way to attack many companies,” he said

Goettl cited a recent incident in which about 400 dentist offices were hit with ransomware through a vendor that handled data backups for the offices. Threat actors have learned that hitting multiple targets at once is a more effective and lucrative option than the piecemeal approach used in the early days of ransomware, he said.

“If I’m an attacker and I find a vertical that I want to go after, such as a vendor for a bunch of health care providers, and I get as much intel as I can about them, their developers and their development platform and any information about their repositories, then I could put together a valid spear-phishing attack,” Goettl said. “And if I can get into their code base, then I can construct an attack that hits all of their customers and makes for a more painful and more profitable ransomware scenario.”

Microsoft issues more servicing stack updates

Microsoft issued an advisory (ADV990001) related to servicing stack updates for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. The first three operating systems will leave mainstream support after the next Patch Tuesday, on Jan. 14, 2020, and move into the extended support phase. Companies that have not migrated off these legacy systems will need to sign up for extended security updates (ESU) to receive support when the end-of-life (EOL) date passes.

“My guess is that these servicing stack updates for these older platforms are preparing for that switchover so the systems can check and get continued updates if you’ve got that [ESU] key,” Goettl said.

A recent survey from Ivanti indicates many organizations have lagged in their Windows 7 migration efforts for several reasons, such as lack of time and lack of application support. In the survey of more than 500 IT professionals published in October, 39% of the respondents indicated they would not have completed migrations off of Windows 7 before the EOL date.

Microsoft makes unusual move with bug for unsupported OS 

In an unusual twist, Microsoft released information for a Remote Desktop Protocol information disclosure vulnerability (CVE-2019-1489) rated important for Windows XP — an unsupported Windows operating system — but did not provide a patch.

“This one was kind of odd,” said Goettl, who noted Microsoft gave the CVE an exploitability assessment of 0, which typically means it is an actively exploited vulnerability, but Microsoft modified the designation to read “0 – unknown.”

“Microsoft took the time to create a CVE advisory for Windows XP. We can assume there was a reason to trigger that activity, ” Goettl said. “There is no update available, so people really need to get off XP unless they have an absolute necessity to keep it around.”

An attacker could exploit this flaw by connecting remotely to an XP system and running a specially crafted program. The Windows XP operating system went out of mainstream support in April 2009 and left extended support in April 2014.

Other security updates of note for December Patch Tuesday include:

  • A fix for a spoofing flaw (CVE-2019-1490) rated important for Skype for Business Server 2019, cumulative update 2. In the attack scenario, a user would have to click on a malicious link to a server that has been exploited. The threat actor could then launch cross-site scripting attacks on affected systems and run code in the security context of the exploited user. Microsoft’s update closes the loophole by properly sanitizing web requests.
  • A patch for a Win32k graphics remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2019-1468) rated critical for supported Windows client and server operating systems related to improper handling of specially crafted embedded fonts. An attacker who exploits this bug — by getting a user to click on a link to a malicious site or open a specially crafted document — can take control of a system and run tasks based on the privilege level of the affected user. The update corrects how the Windows font library handles embedded fonts.
  • A fix for a Hyper-V remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2019-1471) rated critical on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 that could allow an attacker to run a malicious application on a guest operating system to force the Hyper-V host to run arbitrary code. The update corrects the user input validation process.
  • A correction for a cross-site scripting vulnerability (CVE-2019-1332) rated important in the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) feature. To trigger the exploit, an authenticated user would need to click on a malicious link to an affected SSRS server. The attacker could then perform a range of tasks from deleting content to running malicious code. The patch corrects SSRS URL sanitization.
  • A patch for an information disclosure vulnerability (CVE-2019-1400) rated important in Microsoft Access related to a failure to handle objects in memory properly. The attacker would need to be authenticated on the system to run a malicious application to gather information on the user’s system.

Adobe and Google also release patches

Google updated its Chrome web browser on Tuesday to version 79, resolving 51 vulnerabilities.

Adobe released updates for Adobe Acrobat Reader, Flash Player, Photoshop, Brackets and ColdFusion. Administrators will want to patch Acrobat Reader to close 21 vulnerabilities, 14 of which are rated critical. The company released an update for Flash Player but not for security reasons.

“Adobe is really winding down their focus on Adobe Flash,” Goettl said. “I think it’s safe to say that rather than it just no longer being vulnerable, Adobe is putting so little effort into it that it’s not getting attention anymore. People should be focused on getting Flash Player out of their environments.”

Vonage Meetings rounds out vendor’s cloud portfolio

Vonage plans to add a homegrown video conferencing app to its cloud-based business communications portfolio in December. The move is the latest example of a UC vendor combining calling, messaging and meetings.

Vonage Meetings, currently in beta, is scheduled to launch in December for businesses subscribed to Vonage’s cloud UC product. The vendor said it would not make the meetings platform available as a stand-alone offering.

Vonage currently provides video conferencing capabilities to customers through a partnership with Amazon Web Services, which makes the meetings app Amazon Chime. Vonage built the new platform using technology inherited through its acquisition of TokBox in 2018.

The release of Vonage Meetings follows moves by competitors, including 8×8, which launched a revamped meetings product in September. Market leaders Microsoft and Cisco have also built out all-in-one communications suites that include video over the last couple of years.

Vonage has a strategy of building a technology stack that doesn’t rely on third parties, said Raúl Castañón-Martinez, analyst at 451 Research. “This is a bold move but will allow them more flexibility in terms of defining their roadmap.”

Vonage Meetings will be fully integrated with the vendor’s voice platform to let users quickly move between voice and video calls. Guests will be able to join meetings using a web browser without installing a client or plug-in.

Vonage said it would provide customers with a log of past meetings, including a record of in-meeting chats.

Vonage now has a single cloud platform from which it can deliver voice and video services, said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research. “I think that will work as a very good competitive advantage for them moving forward.”

In the future, Vonage will need to integrate Vonage Meetings with conference room equipment and software, Kerravala said. Also, the vendor should focus on improving its relatively basic messaging app.

Vonage announced the meetings platform this week at Vonage Campus 2019, a user conference in San Francisco. The company also released a new logo as it continues to pivot away from the consumer market.

Founded in 2001, Vonage was among the first vendors to offer internet-based phone service to consumers, but, more recently, has transformed into a business-to-business company.

“I think the Vonage that we knew as the consumer-first company is quickly winding down,” Kerravala said.
