ThreatPost: Wormable BlueKeep Bug

 

Fausto Oliveira, Acceptto's Principal Security Architect, shares his view in ThreatPost article on the topic of the exposed Windows systems vulnerability.


“The exploit is quite significant given the number of affected systems, which gives an attacker the ability not only of hijacking these machines, but to use them to further penetrate other systems and services inside the organization,” Oliveira said. “The type of risks that organizations are facing are wide, just to name a few: once the exploit is in place the attacker can exfiltrate data from the RDP server, obtain credentials, disrupt the operations of the organization or use the RDP server as a jumping point to access further resources inside the company.”
