SMBGhost Details Leaked in Microsoft Snafu | Avast

By GIXnews

In advance of this week’s Patch Tuesday for Microsoft users, details leaked online regarding a new vulnerability inherent in Windows 10 that can be exploited as a “wormable” bug, meaning it can travel easily from victim to victim. Microsoft, however, did not issue a fix for the flaw in its weekly update nor was a fix scheduled for any of the Patch Tuesdays this month, reported ZDNet. But Avast Security Evangelist Luis Corrons has faith one will be developed soon. “Given the seriousness of this vulnerability,” he commented, “we are sure Microsoft will release a patch as soon as possible instead of waiting for next month’s regular update.”
