This post will be quick, if you haven’t heard about PrintNightmare take a look to this article: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/public-windows-printnightmare-0-day-exploit-allows-domain-takeover/

In order to avoid some ransom in our companies, just disable the service Print Spoler on WIndows 10 and Windows Server environments.

In order to do that, just open a PS as an admin and run the following:

Stop-Service -Name Spooler -Force

#prevent the service from starting again during restart

Set-Service -Name Spooler -StartupType Disabled

That’s all! take care!
