In case you missed it, Microsoft released an important security patch as a result of a massive security breach found in Windows 10 Microsoft has admitted that between December 5th – 31st 2019, a security vulnerability inside of internal customer support database was left entirely exposed for anyone to access without requiring a password.
According to researcher Bob Diatchenko, who was the one to discover the vulnerable database, 250 million Costumer Service and Support records which contained endless conversations between Microsoft’s support team and costumers were accessible to just about anyone. Microsoft is still investigating the security breach but it appears none of the information that was potentially available has been used in a malicious way so far. They did, however, begin to inform customers whose data was involved in the breach.
