REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — The National Security Agency has discovered a major security flaw in Microsoft’s Windows operating system.
Microsoft said the NSA notified the company about it. A fix was made available Tuesday.
The company said it has not seen any evidence that hackers have used the technique discovered by the NSA.
“Customers who have already applied the update, or have automatic updates enabled, are already protected,” said Jeff Jones, a senior director at Microsoft, in a statement.
