Security & Compliance
The vulnerability with the embedded chrome browser in Remote Desktop Manager Windows is fixed in the latest version (2023.2.33 and higher).
Remote Desktop Manager Windows
The embedded chromium browser component used by Remote Desktop Manager Windows is currently affected by a critical security vulnerability. The vulnerability (CVE-2023-4863) is in the libwebp library used by the chromium engine. This component is managed by a third-party and can't be patched on our end.
We advise not to use the embedded chrome browser in the web site entries and switch to another browser such as Microsoft Edge in the meantime. You can switch browser by editing the entry and changing the Web browser property to Microsoft Edge. By default, RDM Windows uses Microsoft Edge if the default configuration hasn't been modified.
We are actively working with the third party software company to get this fix out as soon as possible. This advisory will be updated consequently.
