Microsoft is warning Windows 10 users to update their operating system immediately. The reason is the vulnerability.
Two omissions cited by the company as critical, are potentially susceptible to worms. This means that infected computers can spread viruses and malware without any interaction with the user. The problem concerns several versions of the software. In addition to all versions of Windows 10, also Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2. As we learn from the Microsoft blog, even hundreds of millions of computers can be at risk.
According to Microsoft representatives, it is important that the affected systems be patched as quickly as possible because of the increased risk of attacks against these vulnerabilities. Relevant downloads can be found on the Microsoft website. Users of older systems, as well as those who have the automatic update option, need nothing. People who make manual updates can do so in system settings. Just enter the word "update" in the search bar.
Another major update to the Tens is before us
It is worth remembering that another major update to the 19H2-marked system is forthcoming. Although this time Microsoft has not decided to introduce new features, we will find some improvements that should appeal to users. The most important of these are improvements in performance improvement and longer battery life. The 19H2 update is expected to come out in September 2019 and be phased out. Perhaps the update will also bring a refreshed boot menu that has recently leaked to the web.
Windows 10 is currently the most popular system in the world, though it only happened 3.5 years after its release. According to Microsoft, it currently supports over 800 million devices.
