    PrintNightmare Vulnerability - Status Question


    Has this been addressed? Do I still need to keep print spooler disabled? Yes or No. I've searched for a definite answer and have not been able to find one. I know there was an initial fix, but then heard that another vulnerability was discovered and that Microsoft was in process of fixing that vulnerability. I cannot find anything about the status of the 2nd vulnerability and don't see any fix in my update history. Really a pain keeping print spooler off. Not only is it making printing a chore (either turn print spooler on temporarily or send data to my ipad and print from that), but it also impacts my ability to save files as PDF. Help! Fixed or not? Yes or no?

    :)

  3. vulnerable - hacked my system

    Hi! My name is Anderson Souza. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you, I'll be glad to help you today.

    Your tool is indicating that a vulnerability was found in a software installed on your computer, but that does not mean that it has been exploited, I did a quick search for that vulnerability and found it to be a low-security risk. This is a flaw in the OpenSSL
    program that affects the versions listed in the image sent. From what I could see on the OpenSSL page itself, this is the latest version available so I don't believe the problem has been solved. I believe that, for now, the solution is to keep antivirus and
    antimalware solutions up-to-date or choose to stop using OpenSSL.

    I hope this information is helpful. please keep me updated on the status of this issue. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will be glad to help you.

    If the suggestion helped you, you can also help other users with questions similar to yours, just click "Yes" in the question "Did this solve the problem?"

    Thank you.

    PrintNightmare Vulnerability - Status Question

    WPA2 Vulnerability Found

    A small update with regards to the Microsoft fix. The fix itself is sufficient to solve the issue on Windows, even if your WiFi device has no driver update, with one caveat:

    Does this security update fully address these vulnerabilities on Microsoft Platforms, or do I need to perform any additional steps to be fully protected?
    The provided security updates address the reported vulnerabilities; however, when affected Windows based systems enter a connected standby mode in low power situations, the vulnerable functionality may be offloaded to installed Wi-Fi hardware. To fully address potential vulnerabilities, you are also encouraged to contact your Wi-Fi hardware vendor to obtain updated device drivers. For a listing of affected vendors with links to their documentation, review the ICASI Multi-Vendor Vulnerability Disclosure statement here: http://www.icasi.org/wi-fi-protected-access-wpa-vulnerabilities
