TechCrunch: Homeland Security issues rare emergency alert over ‘critical’ Windows bug

TechCrunch: Homeland Security issues rare emergency alert over ‘critical’ Windows bug. “The Zerologon vulnerability, rated the maximum 10.0 in severity, could allow an attacker to take control of any or all computers on a vulnerable network, including domain controllers, the servers that manage a network’s security. The bug was appropriately called ‘Zerologon,’ because an attacker doesn’t need to steal or use any network passwords to gain access to the domain controllers, only gain a foothold on the network, such as by exploiting a vulnerable device connected to the network.”
