There are a few workarounds users can take to minimize their risk.



Source:https://www.engadget.com/2020-03-23-...e-manager.html

Another link towards to the workaround.

Hope this helps. I am not sure what to do but I am gonna take a gamble and hope nothing attacks my system. Their tips when it comes to Windows 10 sucks and it has a different interface than most users have and maybe someone in forums can get a better perceptive view on how to make this workaround fix easier for us. Thoughts?

Share if you'd like! We gotta protect our computers so we can enjoy our free time isolated in our homes from the crisis. Gotta be able to pay the bills online man!

Game on everyone! Have fun!

easy uninstall all adobe trash from your computer. =\ yeah, sounded better in my head.

i find it a bit shady there's an imminent security reason why MS needs to update every single computer, ASAP, now go go go go. as we're all entering maximum home computer usage stage of this global pandemic. wonder if they're turning more spying on, you know, to detect the virus.

I get that the scammers are out in full force making mad amounts of money.

It's a Microsoft component that allows Windows to interpret a non-native font type, uninstalling "Adobe" won't do a thing I'm afraid - Uninstalling "Microsoft" from Windows will fix it

guess i could go read the whole thing.

if you mean the loophole for installing fonts without admin, then that's old as hell. we used to exploit it in 2015 to push fonts to new artist's computers, while avoiding UAC.

don't remember much else. i've had 2 TBI since then.

Hi,
Yeah I don't even open text files from websites so opening or approving a website prompt that asks to open windows explorer to see something it's offering chances are slim and none regardless of what it is.
So just another numbnut vulnerability.
