AES-NI Exploit – NSA’s Windows Tools Leaked
On Good Friday, the Shadow Brokers released a massive trove of Windows hacking tools allegedly stolen from NSA that works against almost all versions of Windows, from Windows 2000 and XP to Windows 7 and 8, and their server-side variants such as Server 2000, 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 and 2012, except Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
The hacking exploits could give nearly anyone with technical knowledge the ability to break into millions of Windows computers and servers all over the Internet, but those which are not up-to-date. The vulnerabilities have already been patched by Microsoft last month. So if you are using Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2012, please run Windows Update immediately to patch your VPS.
