Microsoft has issued a software update to address a global remote code execution vulnerability affecting the Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) in Windows 7, 10, 11, and Windows Server — in other words, all Microsoft Windows devices. If exploited, this global vulnerability, known as “Follina,” enables threat actors to remotely execute arbitrary code, effectively enabling a full takeover of the affected device — allowing them to view, delete, install programs, and create new accounts on compromised systems. Microsoft has recommended that all customers update their systems to protect their devices from this vulnerability.

Checking the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) website regularly should be incorporated into all IT department protocols. NVD is a U.S. government repository of standards-based vulnerability management data represented using the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). The database tracks Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE), they also post patches, mitigation, remediation, and fixes for all known CVEs.

Many of these essential mitigation tools and advisory resource services are complimentary, others are offered at a significant discount. This includes discounts on MFA assessments and implementation assistance.
