Are you still using older versions of windows (Win 7 down)? If yes then you have to be on the watch. while 2 years back (2017) we saw a flaw of this kind and despite Microsoft effort to warn the public of the forth coming treat, so many people still were affected with this WannaCry malware attack causing havoc for thousands of machines.
Earlier this month, Microsoft revealed a major Windows Security vulnerability which may lead to similar attack experienced last year, a widespread of wormable attack that transfers from one infected pc to the next.
Microsoft in its endeavour to obviate the perceived attack has released several patches for Windows PCs, and had also put extra effort to release patches for older server and Windows XP machines, research still shows there are at least 1 million computers connected to the internet that are still vulnerable,”
So many black hat attackers will most likely start making malwares now that the patches are out.
Well, It now depends on the user to secure his/her files to avoid being a victim of the forth coming WanaCry
This new security exploit involves a critical remote code execution vulnerability in Remote Desktop Services that exists in Windows XP, Windows 7, and server versions like Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008. These operating systems still make up a big chunk of the overall Windows machines in use, especially in corporate environments. Microsoft is now strongly advising system admins to update machines as soon as possible.
