Windows 7 and Server 2008 Get 0patch Security Fixes After EoS
#1
Quote:Microsoft is ending support for Windows 7 and Server 2008 early next year and will also stop delivery of security patches through the normal channel. But users have an alternative to get security fixes on a regular basis in the form of micropatches.
Micropatches are bite-size code sent through the 0Patch platform from ACROS Security to correct security problems in real-time. They are applied to running processes and do not require restarting the machine or the program.
Regular patch cycle for high-risk bugs
After Microsoft ends support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 on January 14, 2020, 0Patch platform will continue to ship vulnerability fixes to its agents.
"Each Patch Tuesday we'll review Microsoft's security advisories to determine which of the vulnerabilities they have fixed for supported Windows versions might apply to Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 and present a high-enough risk to warrant micropatching."
High-risk problems eligible for micropatching are defined here and include those that are easy to exploit, are already used in attacks, flaws leading to a realistic remote code execution scenario, or those that have a patch that cannot be applied immediately.
If the vulnerable code is present in the unsupported Windows versions, the 0Patch team starts work triggering the vulnerability and porting the patch.
