  • Proof of concept code published for one of this month’s Win7 zero-days

    Catalin Cimpanu reports on ZDNet that the Chinese giant Qihoo 360 Core has published proof of concept code for the Win7 zero day identified as CVE-2019-0808. That’s the zero-day that prompted Google to patch Chrome last week, with a dire warning that you needed to get Chrome caught up on patches.

    That isn’t good news for Win7 users.

    I’ll be watching closely to see if the new proof of concept code makes its way into a credible threat for you Win7 customers.

    Stay tuned.
