Microsoft issues warning to ALL Windows 10 users: You need to follow these steps now

Windows 10 users have been put on high alert over a dangerous new flaw found lurking inside the popular desktop operating system. Dubbed SeriousSAM, it allows bad actors to gain administrator rights on vulnerable systems – enabling them to install malware, applications, delete files, and much more. SeriousSAM is a so-called "zero-day vulnerability", which means that attackers are already aware of how to leverage the flaw. That means Microsoft is in a race against the hackers – to fix the problem before too many people fall victim to hackers exploiting the issue.

Thankfully, Microsoft is working on a fix. However, these things take some time. And while the Redmond-based company is hard at work on a permanent patch for the problem, which it refers to as CVE-2021-36934, Microsoft has shared a workaround to protect your laptop, desktop PC, or tablet from these attacks.
