Windows 10 Users - Take Immediate Action


The above heading is self explanatory. If you are already practising safe cyber hygiene in accordance to the policies laid out for best practices in managing cyber risks, you should have updated your Windows 10 in your organisation. Microsoft's Director of Incident Response, in a blog post on 13 Aug 2019 that there are two "critical" vulnerabilities which  are potentially "wormable", meaning affected computers could spread viruses and malware without any action on the user's part.


Before this latest blog post, in June 2019, the National Security Agency also warned Americans to update Windows 10 to avoid a critical security exploit and the BlueKeep wormable.


It appears that this latest warning is serious and warrants users everywhere who are using Windows 10 to update their Windows 10 URGENTLY.
