  • BlueKeep exploitation expected soon

    Posted on July 23rd, 2019 at 02:59 Kirsty Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Several hours ago, there was a lot of noise on Twitter about a Github explanation on how to “weaponize” BlueKeep, triggering fears it could soon be widely expolited.

    Dan Goodin‘s article on ArsTechnica.com is fairly succinct:

    BEWARE OF WORMABLE EXPLOITS —
    Chances of destructive BlueKeep exploit rise with new explainer posted online

     
    We’ll be keeping an eye on Kevin Beaumont’s Twitter feed, to see what he posts about it today.

    UPDATE:
    Kevin Beaumont is also warning about a more imminent threat from BlueKeep
