Brain - Microsoft patches Windows 10 security flaw discovered by the NSA
Key Highlights

Microsoft is patching a serious flaw in various versions of Windows today

The flaw, which hasn't been marked critical by Microsoft, could allow attackers to spoof the digital signature tied to pieces of software, allowing unsigned and malicious code to masquerade as legitimate software

The NSA reported the flaw to Microsoft recently, and it's recommending that enterprises patch it immediately or prioritize systems that host critical infrastructure like domain controllers, VPN servers, or DNS servers

Brian Krebs first revealed the extent of the flaw yesterday

Microsoft is now patching Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2019
