These vulnerabilities affect millions of Windows users and Microsoft has urged anyone using Windows 8 through 10 or enterprises using Windows Server 2012 through 2016 to immediately patch their systems. The Cyberscoop article - Critical Windows DNS Vulnerability Gives Hackers the 'Keys to the Kingdom' - discusses these vulnerabilities that were discovered by Senior Security Associate Nick Freeman.
