 Information about Recent Revit Security Updates

We have recently released a number of security fixes for 2017, 2018, and 2019 versions of Revit. These updates address security issues and are required in order to make sure your product continues to work in the future. We recommend you install these Revit security fixes as soon as possible. We (the Revit Team) decided that in order to reduce the impact to customers of having to install multiple security hotfixes for a single version of Revit, that we would include all the known security hotfixes into the one security hotfix.

The updates are:

  •  Revit 2017.0.4 Security Fix
    • The 2017.0.4 is an update for users that have installed 2017 but have not installed any of the point releases – we call this being on our first version – or “First Customer Ship (FCS)”. You likely need this update if you do not subscribe to Revit.
  • Revit 2017.2.4 Security Fix
    • 2017.2.4 is for those that have updated to a point release of 2017, on Subscription.
  • Revit 2018.0.3 Security Fix
    • 2018.0.3 is for those that have installed 2018, but again, have not installed any of our subscription point release updates.
  • Revit 2018.3.2 Security Fix
    • 2018.3.2 is for those that have installed a point release, on subscription.
  • Revit 2019.0.2 Security Fix
    • 2019.0.2 is for those that have installed 2019, but have not installed any of our subscription point release updates
  • Revit 2019.1 Update
    • 2019.1 includes the security updates mentioned (even though it was released in August 2018).

These updates are needed to help your product continue to function as you expect. You can download them via the accounts page (accounts.autodesk.com) or install them via the Autodesk Desktop App. Even if you subscribe to Revit, you likely will see multiple updates available for you – so that if you didn’t happen to install the point releases you will still have all the fixes available. If you accidentally run the install for a version that is not on your machine, don’t worry, it will not affect the version you do have installed. If you run the installer and the update is already there, you will get a message that the fixes are installed. For Revit products, these updates also include additional security-related fixes. We hope that you take the time to install these security fixes as soon as possible to ensure your products continue to function as you expect.       Applied Technology Group is a Platinum Autodesk Business Partner.
