Microsoft released a series of Security Updates on the same day, January 3, 2018 to patch the disclosed security vulnerability. However, the released Security Updates were released with “Known Issues”.

The suggested workaround above to change the authentication level parameter has been implemented in the current latest release of CEMView 4.0 Build 0107.0.
If the Microsoft Security Updates released on January 3, 2018 are not applied to the operating system, then CEMView will continue to operate properly as before, but obviously the disclosed security vulnerability will exist on your system.
If the Microsoft Security Updates released on January 3, 2018 are applied to the operating system and CEMView is not updated, CEMView Client and all optional modules such as Gas Auditor, CEMView Mailer, FSClient, EDR Manager, etc. will be unable to connect to CEMView Server after the update.
CEMView must be updated to Build 0107.0 (or later) if the Microsoft Security Updates released on January 3, 2018 are applied to your system. Please do not apply the Microsoft Security Updates to your system if you do not have a current release of CEMView.
