It’s been a month since Microsoft issued warnings about BlueKeep vulnerabilities affecting older versions of its Windows operating system. Ongoing warnings about its “wormable” pattern persist, meaning it is susceptible for exploitation. Microsoft has been comparing this vulnerability to the WannaCry event that spread globally, affecting millions of computers in 2017.
We encourage you to ensure that your IT team has thoroughly reviewed your network and is patching any affected systems promptly. We are also pleased to share this BitSight overview, which summarizes BlueKeep and provides NSA recommendations to increase your network’s resilience.
