an all windows must do update

Posted (edited)

Microsoft has released an out-of-band patch that closes an exploit that if executed, could allow remote code execution. The vulnerability, which affects all supported versions of Windows, could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or visits an untrusted webpage that contains embedded OpenType font, according to Microsoft.

If you are running any version of Windows that Microsoft currently supports, you should run Windows Update right now to grab the patch. Seeing as Microsoft is issuing this patch out of its normal cadence, solidifies that Microsoft feels that this issue needs to be resolved immediately.

If you've got Windows set to update automatically, you should have already received this by now.  Dave showed me Mike's post this morning and I've checked all our computers at work now and they all did it automatically yesterday afternoon...
