Microsoft continues to secure the Distributed Component Model (DCOM) on its Windows operating systems to address a security vulnerability (CVE-2021-26414). The next update to DCOM hardening will occur on June 14, 2022.
DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model) is a proprietary Microsoft technology for communication between software components on networked computers. DCOM is used in the ISRA Vision Surface Inspection systems in many areas.
Affected are inspection systems that run under Windows 10 or Windows 11 AND install the Windows update KB5004442 automatically or via manual intervention. In these cases, abnormalities may be possible starting June 14, 2022, e.g. at system startup.
The following systems are NOT affected:
- ISRA Vision Surface Inspection systems on Microsoft Windows 7.
- All ISRA Vision systems that have not been provided with Windows updates since delivery.
Since Microsoft does not offer this DCOM security update as an optional install, settings of the affected inspection systems must be adjusted. ISRA Vision will provide you with a configuration script free of charge to ensure compatibility with the new Windows DCOM security update.
If you have any questions, please contact our service department to receive the script with instructions or request remote support.
