ARS Technica: Microsoft has plugged a critical hole in all supported versions of Windows that allows attackers to hit high-value computers with self-replicating attacks that install malicious code with no user interaction required.
good article a Nice heads up. im gonna be on that security update the second it comes out.
Oh God... Wait it's patched - had me worried there. I too have a high-spec gaming PC.
The vulnerability is with Remote Desktop Protocol. Vast majority of people do not have this option turned on. If your computer is not business related or hooked to a large mainframe then odds are you don't have protocol turned on. If you do then turn it off until the patch arrives. People should rarely if ever need to have it turned on anyway. Unless you like to control your computer from another remote device.
