Old version of Slack vulnerable to RCE

This only affects versions prior to 4.4 (current version is 4.8) so make sure your Slack clients are updated!

So slack is one of those apps that we have difficulty keeping patched since it cant be patched while its running and it runs on startup. Is there a good worklet way to stop the process and then invoke patching on it? How are you guys handling this issue?

You could have a worklet run and kill the process right before the patching window. Should be pretty simple to issue a kill command on the process. Let me know if you’re able to get that working.
