    Windows Print Spooler Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

    Microsoft is aware of and investigating a remote code execution vulnerability that affects Windows Print Spooler and has assigned CVE-2021-34527 to this vulnerability. This is an evolving situation and we will update the CVE as more information is available.

    A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Print Spooler service improperly performs privileged file operations. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

    An attack must involve an authenticated user calling RpcAddPrinterDriverEx().

    Please ensure that you have applied the security updates released on June 8, 2021, and see the FAQ and Workaround sections in this CVE for information on how to help protect your system from this vulnerability.

    Windows Print Spooler Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

    This exploit only affects Domain Controllers not workstations. I am not worried about it because our Windows workstation rarely gets used and in no way is not a Windows Server Edition or behaves as a DC.

    Stopping the Spooler service means jobs are going to sit on the machine until you physically go into the folder to purge them out.

    Windows Print Spooler Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

    Thank you , sir.

    This post answered a question, I had logged back in, to pose.

    In my situation, there was no need to 'Disable', this, apparently.

    My ignorance. No other excuse.

    Just wanted to take measures to be secure. *Smile

    @bro67

    Should I go back into Group Editor, and set this back from 'Disabled', to 'Not Configured'? or simply, leave it be?


    Single desktop PC, hardwired behind router (no wifi). Have a USB connected printer, but never use it. System specs up to date.

    Apologies for bothering you.

    ~~~~~

    I welcome anyone else to answer, as well. *Smile

    Thank you.
