Windows Users Must Be Aware of a New Found Exploit - Follina
An exploit has been discovered recently and it can affect all versions of Windows. According to experts in a report on Wired, this newly found exploit takes advantage of the MSDT (Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool), which is a tool that is built into all versions of Windows. This tool basically helps the support team of Microsoft help the users with troubleshooting. This tool can be found easily by searching for “MSDT” in the Home menu of Windows. When an user needs help troubleshooting and they call the support team, they give the user a passcode. When this passcode is entered into the MSDT, it gives the support team access to some information about the device and software of the user. The support team can then use that information to locate the problem with the device and guide the user to efficient troubleshooting.
