Older Windows has become vulnerable


Microsoft warns that Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2003 have also become vulnerable to remote attacks.

Microsoft has released a serious patch for several older Windows, as there is a serious risk that they will be attacked. The company recently discovered a remote code execution vulnerability in several previous operating systems, specifically Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 RT.

Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the patch on these operating systems, as this is a bug that allows worms to spread to vulnerable machines without user interaction. This is similar to the bug that made it possible to infect the WannaCry pest.

The bug was discovered in Remote Desktop Access, so in principle, machines that are not running are safe, but you may want to install the patch on such machines. You can read more about how to do this on the Microsoft website.
