Another day, another cyber security threat… This latest vulnerability puts all supported releases of Microsoft Windows at risk. The recommendation is if you use Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows Server 2012/2012 R2, or Windows RT/RT 8.1, to get the patch using either Windows Update or download it directly from Microsoft’s Support site.
Ars Technicha has a comprehensive write up of the Windows bug. At this time there is no evidence that the bug has been exploited but now that it has been disclosed that could change quickly. Please be sure to update as soon as possible!
