DirectX causing Cyber Security issues.

Dear Team,

We are using DirectX components in our application, upon Scanning our application for Cyber Security issues we are facing vulnerabilities in d3dx9_43.dll (both 64 and 32 bit).

It seems that d3dx9_43.dll is statically linked with some open source libraries like zlib, libpng…
Our binary scan shows that this directx dll is using old versions of zlib and libpng.

I just want to know is there any way we can update this dll with new versions of open source libraries.
Please advice.

I would say you need to update your application DX9 is pretty old and I believe not supported anymore

Thanks for replying.

The issue is in OS - Windows Server 2008 R2 with DirectX11 installed.
Later versions of DirectX, is not compatible with Windows Server 2008 R2.

Is there a way we can rebuild d3dx9_43.dll with latest version of open source libraries ?

Server 2008 R2 supports DirectX 11 so you should be using that. As for DX9, no there is no way to repatch the dll.
