.Net Framework 4.7.2 Vulnerabilities

S Abijith 346 Reputation points

Hi All,

We have an application currently built on .Net Framework 4.7.2. The system also has .Net Framework 4.7.2 installed.

We found a few vulnerabilities associated with .Net Framework 4.7.2. We were informed that if we install the below mentioned patches, it would resolve all the vulnerabilities associated with .Net Framework 4.7.2:


Now the question is,

1)We upgrade to .Net Framework 4.8 on the system

2)Dont install the above mentioned patches

would it still resolve all the vulnerabilities which are supposed to be fixed by the above mentioned patches??

Please let us know on this!!

Thank you in advance!!

    Hi @S Abijith , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

    An important question is, has your application been upgraded to 4.8?

    If your app doesn't support 4.8, this will most likely not work for you.

    Upgrading to a newer version is a good solution.

    Best Regards,
