Critical flaws in Windows Print spooler service could allow for remote attacks

Microsoft is grappling with a couple of security holes in its Windows Print spooler service that could allow attackers to remotely control an affected system. Anyone able to exploit the more recent vulnerability of the two would be able to run code on the compromised computer with full system privileges. That attacker could then install software, modify data and create new user accounts, according to Microsoft.

The flaws affect all versions of Windows for clients and servers, including Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, as well as Server 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016 and 2019.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The more complex these systems become, the easier it is for criminals (and government agencies) to break in.
