Microsoft warns the public in an official “zero-days” message: make a small change or your bank account risked being emptied.


Microsoft has warned MILLIONS of users to update their hardware or risk having their personal data stolen.

For its monthly Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released a number of new security updates on Tuesday.


The three zero-day flaws that were being used by attackers were the focus of the patches.

A flaw in a system or device that has been discovered but not yet patched constitutes a zero-day vulnerability.

These flaws are particularly dangerous because there is no known attack vector and security software frequently misses them.

CVE-2023-21823, a remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in the Windows Graphics Component, was one of the vulnerabilities that Microsoft patched.

CVE-2023-23376, a Windows Common Log File System Driver elevation of privilege (EoP) vulnerability, is the most significant security hole that Microsoft has recently fixed.

If this vulnerability is successfully exploited, a hacker could access your financial data as well as important files.

The following security holes have also been patched: CVE-2023-21706, CVE-2023-21707, and CVE-2023-21529.
