We have been watching the updates regarding the discovery of the computer bug that could be used as a cyber weapon, much like that of WannaCry worm two years ago. It appears this bug affects Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 as well as Windows 2003 and XP – older versions of Windows that Microsoft doesn’t support anymore.
This bug has been identified as a high profile computer security issue, especially with so many devices still running older versions of Windows.
Here is what Microsoft had to say:
“Microsoft said that it hasn’t seen anyone take advantage of the flaw, which affects older versions of its Windows operating system, but that it believes it is “highly likely” the flaw will wind up being exploited by malicious software, now that it has been publicly disclosed.
Any future malware that exploits this vulnerability could propagate from vulnerable computer to vulnerable computer in a similar way as the WannaCry malware spread across the globe, Microsoft said Tuesday in a blog post.”
