M$ Issues Emergency Patch For PrintNightmare

A security flaw, dubbed PrintNightmare, affects Microsoft’s Windows Print Spooler service. A Team of researchers accidentally published a how-to guide for exploiting flaws in this service on the Internet. Whoops. The vulnerability is present in Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2016. Microsoft has already issued emergency patches for Windows 10 and Windows 7 (and Windows 7 isn’t even supported). The company is recommending all users patch immediately.
