The Windows Print Spooler Service is, by design, vulnerable to attack. The recent Microsoft “PrintNightmare” breach demonstrated how remote, mobile or internal systems can be compromised and exploited, enabling attackers to remotely execute privileged file operations. An attacker taking advantage of this vulnerability can perform actions like installing programs; accessing, changing, or deleting data; or creating new accounts that have full user rights. This presents a serious danger to your company’s privileged data. Microsoft has released security patches to address this vulnerability. But how can you protect your corporate network in the future?
