windows users are at risk

By Sophie Van Remortel: Digital Marketing & Content Coordinator

 

Early the week of July 6th, US-CERT, CISA, and Microsoft issued urgent security notices regarding the PrintNightmare vulnerability. PrintNightmare is a remote code execution exploit that can quickly take over a network and create major security problems by allowing hackers to install programs, view/delete data, and even create new user accounts with full user rights. 

Microsoft has already released patches for the vulnerability on many versions of Windows systems and strongly recommends Windows users to check for updates and install immediately as they become available to protect devices against remote attacks. 

Prior to the released patches, SWICKtech’s Security and Operations Center (SOC) deployed protection to all impacted customers. As updates are released, clients under support contracts for cybersecurity will automatically receive patches.   

SWICKtech will continue to monitor the details of the vulnerability, keeping networks and data security our top priority. Additional information from Microsoft can be found here

If you have questions or concerns about the impact of this threat to your business, please reach out to SWICKtech here.

Stop potential hackers in their tracks.
