Older versions of Windows should be updated immediately

In various bulletins posted by numerous security organisations and Microsoft the Bluekeep vulnerability presents a significant and severe risk to any systems running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows XP, Server 2003 and Server 2008 operating systems.

The flaw has the potential to have impact similar to the massive Wannacry ransomware outbreak in 2017 but this time it is unlikely to be stopped as quickly.
