Advisory FAQ

How do I know if I am affected?

The affected assemblies are part of .NET Core. If you are running a vulnerable version of .NET Core you may be affected.

How do I fix the issue?

To fix the issue please install the latest version of .NET Core. If you have multiple versions of .NET Core installed you will need to install multiple runtimes, or SDKs depending on what you have installed.

If you have .NET Core 2.0 or greater installed you can list the versions you have installed by running the dotnet --info command. You will see output like the following;

To install additional .NET Core runtimes or SDKs:

If your version of .NET Core does not support the dotnet --info command then you have either .NET Core 1.0 or .NET Core 1.1 installed.

Once you have installed the updated runtime or SDK you should restart your apps for the update to take effect.

If you have pinned your application to a specific version of the runtime you must update your app, recompile and redeploy it for the update to take effect.
