Microsoft’s PrintNightmare patch is evidently not the complete fix

We reported that the PrintNightmare vulnerability, accidentally published by security researchers, was being fixed by Microsoft.

However, Bleeping Computer reports the view that the out-of-band KB5004945 security update does not fix the whole problem. The update fixes the remote code execution element, but the local privilege escalation component is still a risk.

Microsoft says that it is aware of the comments and is investigating. You can read the full Bleeping Computer article here, and we hope that Microsoft will issue a further security update very shortly.
