Patch Tuesday Brings Fix For Windows Security Flaw

It looks as though Microsoft has finally fixed that security flaw that was being actively exploited by a spearphishing campaign that is believed to have originated in Russia. The update applies to all versions of Windows, from Vista through Windows 10.

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on to an affected system and runs a specially crafted application that could exploit the vulnerabilities and take control of an affected system.
