Microsoft has informed us about a critical vulnerability, affecting their operating systems.

Summary of the vulnerability: a remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Print Spooler service improperly performs privileged file operations. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Mitigation: Microsoft has released patches to mitigate this vulnerability, except for windows 2016. We will be installing these updates tonight between 2h and 3h.
Impact of the updates: reboot of the vm.
