Microsoft has just released an update that fixes a very critical vulnerability in all versions of Windows.
Vulnerability was discovered by security researchers from Google's Project Zero and FireEye.
The patch is currently available and you'll be able to apply it right through Windows Update.
The company in a Publication states that the vulnerability, if exploited, could "allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or visits an unreliable website that contains embedded OpenType fonts."
"An attacker could install programs, view, modify, or delete data. It could also create new accounts with full user rights, ”the company warned.
In other words, the vulnerability lies in the way Window handles certain fonts and can allow hackers to take full control of a system.
Users using Windows Vista, Window 7, 8, 8.1, WindowWrite RT or Window Server 2008 will do well to upgrade their computers directly.
