Microsoft released a new update for Windows 10 and Windows 11 as part of Patchday in May. It fills in serious security holes. These relate to the Windows printer spooler.
The vulnerability is known as PrintNightmare. Attackers can use this to gain access to the system. The closed vulnerabilities now contain the IDs CVE-2022-29114, CVE-2022-29140, CVE-2022-29104, and CVE-2022-29132.
Microsoft closes security holes: Problems may already be exploited
Vulnerabilities are already likely to be actively exploited, such as “Safety Week” mentioned. Ransomware is often installed to demand ransom from victims. In the past few months, a particularly large number of users from Austria, France and Slovenia have been affected.
Businesses in particular can continue to be common targets for criminals. In addition to extortion attempts, the theft of valuable data should also be of interest. To prevent this, Microsoft recommends that you install the new update as soon as possible.
