Microsoft has started rolling out an emergency Windows patch to address a critical flaw in the Windows Print Spooler service. The vulnerability, dubbed PrintNightmare, was revealed last week, after security researchers accidentally published proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code. Microsoft has issued out-of-band security updates to address the flaw, and has rated it as critical as attackers can remotely execute code with system-level privileges on affected machines.

I have a thread somewhere, I shown that MANY services can be deactivated without any problems. Yes, just disable the service.

We have been following the “PrintNightmare” vulnerability that affects the Windows Print Spooler. From an exploit PoC accidentally leaking online last week, to Microsoft this week issuing an emergency out of band patch. However, it seems threat actors have already found a way to work around Microsoft’s fix.

There’s no doubt that Microsoft rushed out the patch. In fact, I am struggling to think of a quicker response to an emergency from the company. So, maybe it is no surprised that a record-breaking patch may have some holes in it.


LOL, yeah like it's only the rushed patches that have issues.
