The National Security Agency (NSA) issued a warning to organizations and private users about the BlueKeep security breach in Windows, and encouraged users to install the update that prevents it, which Microsoft released last month.

Microsoft

 Has issued two warnings on the matter and said the breach was very dangerous because it could be exploited to release malicious software that distributes itself as in the 1987 cyber attack that released the WannaCry software.

Microsoft’s second warning follows a security researcher’s finding that there are still at least one million vulnerable PCs that have not installed the update and to encourage their owners to act quickly.

The security breach BlueKeep affects older versions of Windows such as XP, Vista and Windows 7. The agency said in a warning that “the NSA is concerned about bad cyber players who will use the breach and increase their capabilities against other systems.” The agency has even recommended that organizations affected by the security flaw take additional security measures other than installing the update released by Microsoft, such as eliminating remote control if they do not use it.
