  • Option 2: Microsoft created the EOMTv2 script for the URL Rewrite mitigation steps and updated it to include the URL Rewrite rule improvements. EOMTv2 script will auto-update on Internet connected machines and the updated version will show as 22.10.05.2304. The script should be re-run on any Exchange Server without EEMS enabled.
  • Option 3: Customers can follow the instructions as stated at Customer Guidance for Reported Zero-day Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Exchange Server – Microsoft Security Response Center
Disable remote PowerShell access for non-admins:

Please refer to Control remote PowerShell access to Exchange servers | Microsoft Learn to disable remote PowerShell access for users per user and bulk users.
