The latest computer systems security bug has been discovered in Microsoft’s Windows Operating System, according to a blog post by Microsoft’s Security Team.
The bug affects Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 and is believed to have been fixed in April, but the full severity is not yet known.
The bug is named “Windows Runtime Elevation of Privilege” (CVE-2017-9281).
This is the first known vulnerability affecting the Windows operating system since Microsoft patched the same issue in 2015, and it impacts all current Windows versions.
The flaw is located in the code that handles the memory management of Windows and can be used to execute arbitrary code in the background, which could compromise the integrity of sensitive data.
According to Microsoft, the vulnerability affects only 32-bit versions of Windows 10.
It was discovered by the team at the company’s security division, Microsoft Security Response Center.
This vulnerability can be exploited to run code on a computer that has been compromised.
It is highly likely that an attacker with a low-level administrative access to a computer could exploit this vulnerability to gain administrative access.
It could be exploited by anyone who has successfully compromised a computer.
The exploit can be applied remotely to any affected computer running Windows 10 or Windows Server 1607 or later versions.
Microsoft recommends that you upgrade to Windows 10 to fix the issue.
Windows users can use the “Disable Remote Code Execution” feature to restrict the code execution that is run when they try to open a file or a file manager.
Microsoft also provides a Windows Defender Anti-Virus tool that can help protect you from malware.
Microsoft says the vulnerability is being reported as CVE-2017/9281, which stands for “Windows runtime elevation of privilege.”
This is the second known vulnerability in the Windows system since the release of Windows 7 in 2007.
Microsoft says that the first vulnerability was fixed in 2015.
