New Windows Security Vulnerability – BlueKeep

New Windows Security Vulnerability – BlueKeep

A new security vulnerability has been found in Windows systems. Dubbed BlueKeep the weakness is found in Windows 2003, XP, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 editions. It could also potentially spread to other unprotected computer systems.

Microsoft released a security patch two weeks ago but there are lots of systems that have yet to be updated and so are vulnerable to this attack. The weakness allows someone to take control of a targeted computer without any interaction from the user.

BlueKeep has been described as “wormable” which means it would allow malware to spread to vulnerable systems easily just like the notorious WannaCry ransomware attack. 

Please update your systems as soon as possible to help prevent an attack.
