Microsoft has released an urgent critical update for Windows 10 with build number KB4551762. The update fixes a potentially dangerous bug in the operating system that allows malicious utilities to spread between computers. As noted in the publication Engadget, Microsoft is releasing the update urgently in order to avoid mass infections, similar to the WannaCry and NotPetya viruses in 2017.
A vulnerability was discovered in the network protocol for remote access to Server Message Block (SMB) files. Microsoft experts called the error critical, since hacking one computer compromises others on the same network.
There is currently no evidence that the vulnerability is exploited by cybercriminals. But the company emphasized that this is likely to happen in the future.
In this regard, users of computers running Windows 10 are recommended to install update KB4551762. It is available for installation from Windows Update.
