In a recent blog post geared towards security vulnerabilities, Microsoft revealed that it has detected a number of security flaws in Windows 10.
The software giant explained that the security flaws are located around its Remote Desktop Services (RDS) code.
According to analysts, the security flaws which were tagged “wormable” can spread to other vulnerable devices without user action, adding that they are similar to those exploited by the self-replicating ransomware in 2017.
The operating systems affected as listed by Microsoft are: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2 Service Pack 1, Windows 8.1 and all versions Windows 10.
“It is important that affected systems are patched as quickly as possible because of the elevated risks associated with workable vulnerabilities like these. Customers who have automatic updates enabled are automatically protected by these fixes”, Microsoft said.
