Microsoft telah melepaskan kemas kini kritikal bagi pelbagai versi sistem operasi Windows.

“A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Print Spooler service (“PrintNightmare”) improperly performs privileged file operations. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.” Microsoft.
