Microsoft Issues Warning About Critical Windows Vulnerability Allowing Hackers to Remotely Run Code

The Infinite Brief
Microsoft disclosed a new remote code execution vulnerability today that can be found in all supported versions of Windows and is currently being exploited in “limited targeted attacks.”

If a hacker successfully pulled off an attack, they could theoretically remotely run code or malware on the victim’s device.

The flaw involves the Adobe Type Manager Library, which helps Windows render fonts.

There isn’t currently a patch available to fix the flaw, though Microsoft’s advisory notes that updates to address security vulnerabilities are usually released as part of Update Tuesday, typically scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month, with the next update scheduled for April 14th.
