Summary

It’s a universal truth that IT experts hate anything to do with printers and here’s another good reason to add to the pile. A pretty gnarly Windows exploit called PrintNightmare lets hackers run malicious code from the Windows Print Spooler.

Microsoft knows about the vulnerability, and a fix for Windows 7 (yes, that supposedly out-of-service OS) has been issued, with patches for Windows Server 2016, Windows 10, version 1607, and Windows Server 2012 all expected “soon.” Once available, you should install the update asap so that the vulnerability is mitigated.
