Windows Latest Zero-Day Exploit Vulnerability
You may have seen in the news that Microsoft has released a patch for a new zero-day exploit which affects Outlook and can lead to users’ mailboxes being compromised if the patch is not applied. You can read about this via the secure link here.
Supported customers who have Outlook from Microsoft 365 have received this patch, which was pushed out to end-users via Datto’s Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) tool. Users receiving the patch via the RMM will automatically have certain Microsoft applications (Outlook, Excel, Word, etc) closed, so please advise your staff accordingly. Users should not have to restart their machines for this update to be applied.
We are currently working on patch monitoring clients on retail and volume licenses as well and will reach out accordingly.
If you are not enrolled in our Datto RMM or are not a client of TIC, you can follow instructions on how to push the patch on your own by clicking the button below:
