Microsoft urges users to patch against BlueKeep attacks

Following a recent spike in BlueKeep exploit attempts, Microsoft is recommending that all users patch their out-of-date Windows systems to avoid falling victim to an attack.

The software giant’s Microsoft Defender ATP Research Team published a blog post in which they warned of increased BlueKeep activity, saying: “Microsoft security signals showed an increase in RDP-related crashes that are likely associated with the use of the unstable BlueKeep Metasploit module on certain sets of vulnerable machines.”
