Threatpost: Microsoft Patches Zero-Day Bug Under Active Attack

Threatpost: Microsoft Patches Zero-Day Bug Under Active Attack. “Among the other critical bugs patched, system administrators are urged to immediately deploy fixes for a Remote Desktop Services remote code-execution vulnerability (CVE-2019-0708). The bug is notable for a number of reasons. One, it’s ‘wormable’ flaw and has the potential to be exploited in a fast-moving malware attack similar to WannaCry. As a testament to its potential for havoc, Microsoft has also gone the extra step in deploying patches to Windows XP and Windows 2003 for the bug, neither of which is still supported via monthly Patch Tuesday updates.”
