windows new march flaw 2020 critical fix 10’s how security

sidemoonHow to Fix Windows 10’s New Critical Security Flaw (March 2020)
Quote: Windows 10 has a new security flaw, and it’s already being exploited in the wild. You could be infected with malware just from downloading a file, as File Explorer will automatically open the file and preview it. Windows 7 has the same problem.

What You Need to Know
Microsoft announced this security hole on March 23, 2020. Microsoft says it is “aware of limited targeted attacks” that use flaws in the Adobe Type Manager Library. “There are multiple ways an attacker could exploit the vulnerability, such as convincing a user to open a specially crafted document or viewing it in the Windows Preview pane,” according to Microsoft’s security advisory.

The flaw affects all versions of Windows in active use: Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, and various versions of Windows Server. (Of course, if you’re using Windows 7 and aren’t paying for extended security updates, you won’t get a security patch.)
