Win 10 exploit
#1
Please update Windows 10 IMMEDIATELY The NSA has released an official, public statement urging everyone to update their Windows devices as soon as possible. An exploit has been identified in the current version of Windows 10 that can allow malicious software to be automatically installed on your computer, under approved Windows updates. This means that very soon, hackers will be developing tools to be able to take control of and install malicious software to over 900 million PCs worldwide, with little to nothing that can be done to stop or remove the infected software due to the system believing it is from an approved Windows Update. The NSA and US Department of Defense urges everyone on Windows 10 to update their computer IMMEDIATELY, as a fix for the exploit has already been released. Again, failing to update now will put your machine at extreme risk in the future. • To update, click the windows logo in the bottom left, click the cog, go to "update and security" and press "check for updates." Links to the OFFICIAL NSA statement and a detailed news report are included below for you to read. + https://media.defense.gov/2020/Jan/14/20...190114.PDF + https://www.wired.com/story/nsa-windows-...isclosure/ This is NOT a prank or joke, this is real. We urge you all to listen to this and if you don't understand, then tell your parents about this immediately so they can help. (Wired)

Bit over dramatic isn't it?
"Microsoft has issued a patch and said it had seen no evidence of the bug being exploited by hackers."

That's not to say hackers will not exploit it at some point in the future. Microsoft patch is not applied automatically, so people should update and it should be announced with some sense of urgency.

As they say. Better safe than sorry.
Kind Regards,
