Dave's not here.
Here is the CVE article and OS References/Actions. CVE-2019-0708, which is a critical remote code execution vulnerability
yeah! Cutler did an excellent job with NT. It's all the stuff tacked on that has trouble, generally not the core of NT.
... and finally the posix subsystem has its day in the sun, with the advent of Linux On Windows.
NT was not originally made for the internet.
Windows 2000 was NT for the internet with the Bogus Y2K Bug.
'Windows 7 and XP are vulnerable to a major security exploit'
Nah.... scareware, MS don't like us using XP and Windows 7, they want our money in their pockets, PLUS they wanna be knowin' what we are getting up to.
Win 10 might well be better but it's more nosier.... ask em why it was banned in China?
Me stickin' to XP and Win 7 thanks or orf to Linux I may well jolly well go.
Sorry, double posted, just couldn't see the first post.
The double post would have been fine.
Your post was the truth.
MS is not going to do any favors for old school users.
No, it’s a real and exploitable vulnerability. I don’t doubt that Microsoft wants everyone to upgrade to windows 10 but don’t let your distrust of the company’s motives keep you from good security practices.
Patch your OS and make sure your not exposing the RDP port to the internet.
Port 80 is a vulnerable port.
You should block it if you use Win 10.
Or patch it with Win 7. Make sure to turn updates off to avoid the Win10 update.
Of course I block all incoming ports into my home network. If you don’t your asking for trouble.
