Microsoft released fixes for 79 unique vulnerabilities, as well as 22 critical bugs. A serious malware being spread across the globe is a possible outcome by one of these bugs.
Which is why Microsoft took the unusual steps of releasing patches for out-of-service operation systems such as Windows XP and 2003. In addition to this the soon to be end-of-life Windows 7.
Microsoft detailed the potential impact of CVE-2019-0708 (link here), which is a remote code execution where vulnerability exists in Remote Desktop Services.
This is a flaw in Remote Desktop Services (RDS) which could let the attacker remotely execute code on a target system after connecting.
Microsoft stated, the bug is “wormable,” meaning that “any future malware that exploits this vulnerability could propagate from vulnerable computer to vulnerable computer.”
