Installing the June 14 patches is all the more important because attackers and security professionals have already found several ways to exploit the vulnerability, but Microsoft has so far only offered workarounds (see also our blog article).
Greenbone has integrated corresponding vulnerability tests into the Greenbone Community Feed and the Greenbone Enterprise Feed and thus offers the possibility to test the network for this vulnerability and to take protective measures if necessary or to use the new Microsoft patches.
