Get updating: Microsoft delivers PrintNightmare patch for more Windows versions

Microsoft has released patches for more versions of Windows affected by the PrintNightmare bug, but researchers claim the patches don't provide complete protection.

Microsoft released out-of-band patches for Windows systems affected by two critical bugs being tracked as CVE-2021-1675 and CVE-2021-34527, and has advised admins to disable the print spooler service until patches are applied. One is a remote code execution flaw, while the second is a local privilege escalation bug.

"Microsoft identified a security issue that affects all versions of Windows and have expedited a resolution for supported versions of Windows that will automatically be applied to most devices," it said in an update on Wednesday.
