For the May security release, we are releasing fixes for vulnerabilities that impact Azure DevOps Server 2019, TFS 2018, TFS 2017, and TFS 2015. Thanks to everyone who has been participating in our Azure DevOps Bounty Program.

We have now added the ability to patch TFS 2015, so customers do not need to install a full release to get the security fixes. As a reminder, all patches are cumulative, so they include all the fixes in previous patches.

CVE-2019-0971: information disclosure vulnerability in the Repos API

CVE-2019-0979: cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the User hub

      Hello,

      The version you have installed is Azure DevOps Server 2019.0.1 RC, which is a prerelease and the patches don’t apply. We will be releasing the final release of 2019.0.1 shortly (we plan to release this week). For future security patches, they will be applicable to the final release of 2019.0.1.

    Hello Erin, we are wondering why there is still no Patch 5 for TFS 2018 Update 3.2 released? In one of your anouncements you wrote “We plan to release security updates on the second Tuesday of each month (Patch Tuesday).” Please take in count, that your customers rely on your anouncements and planing of changes. I look forward to your reply. Best regards Adrian
