Microsoft has released an out-of-band patch for the security flaw known as PrintNightmare that is under attack already and lets attackers take control of a PC.

The PrintNightmare bug is being tracked as CVE-2021-1675 and CVE-2021-34527.

Admins were advised to disable the Print Spooler service until a patch was made available.

You need to use your "Windows Update" option and it will connect to the correct download options.
