Microsoft has shipped an emergency security update affecting most Windows users.
This update partially addresses a security vulnerability known as PrintNightmare that could allow remote hackers to take over your system.
This means hackers could perform malicious activities like installing their own apps, stealing your data, and creating new user accounts.
Microsoft recommends Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 users update their computers through Windows Update as soon as possible.
Note that an additional patch will likely be required to fully fix the issue, so expect another update prompt from Microsoft in the days to come.
For extra protection against malware that may result from a hack like this one, we recommend an all-in-one security solution, like McAfee Total Protection or McAfee LiveSafe.
