This week there is a new alert that requires the mission-critical community’s immediate attention.
Last week, security researchers mistakenly published proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code, which has since been dubbed “PrintNightmare.” The vulnerability exploits a critical flaw in Microsoft’s print spooler service. Microsoft has issued out-of-band security updates to address the flaw and has rated it as critical as attackers can remotely execute code with system-level privileges on affected machines.
