According to the latest statistics, more than 800 million devices of computers and smartphones use Microsoft Windows 10. That doesn’t only show how important is this operating system, but also shows how dangerous it could be if it is not well secured.
After discovering two “dangerous” security flaws by the technology giant’s developers during working on hardening remote desktop services, they immediately released a new security update and pronounced that the flaws are wormable, which means that they can be used in transmitting viruses and malwares without the user even notice.
This update will be useful in avoiding the dangers caused by the two flaws that were named CVE-2019-1181 and CVE-2019-1182. The American company assured that this update is also necessary for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2 beside Windows 10. However, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP and Windows Server 2008 are not affected by the flaws.
According to what was published in one of Microsoft blogs by the director of response management for incidents department Simon Bob, that there are hundreds of millions of infected devices that have to run the update as soon as they can.
It is worth mentioning that the devices which are depending on automatic windows update don’t have to worry, as the system will automatically download and install the new security updates.
