March’s Patch Tuesday was this week and this, Microsoft released a handful of cumulative and security updates for every supported version of Windows. Cumulative updates improve the overall stability of the system while security updates take care of user safety.

One of the security updates that Microsoft marked as critical is the security update KB4013082 for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and supported versions of Windows Server. This update addresses vulnerabilities in Windows that can cause the Hyper-V host operating system arbitrary code and allow attackers to take a full control over a user’s computer.

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if an authenticated attacker on a guest operating system runs a specially crafted application that causes the Hyper-V host operating system to execute arbitrary code.

If you don’t have Hyper-V installed or enabled on your computer, this vulnerability won’t affect you. However, if you regularly use Hyper-V on your computer, installing this update is a must.
