BlueKeep creates concern for Windows 7 users.

The latest threat to Windows users comes in the form of a vulnerability that allows an attacker to take control of a computer remotely. According to WikiPedia here’s the definition:

BlueKeep (CVE2019-0708) is a security vulnerability that was discovered in Microsoft‘s Remote Desktop Protocol, which allows for the possibility of remote code execution.

The remote code execution is the most concerning since it could potentially allow hackers to install software on the remote system and use tools such as self propagating worms to spread across a network.

All users of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 are being strongly urged to install Windows updates from Microsoft to protect against this threat.
