The Cybersecurity unit of Homeland Security alerted federal departments and agencies over a critical security vulnerability in the server versions of Microsoft Windows. It has asked the departments to patch the flaw, dubbed Zerologon, no later than September 21 as it poses an "unacceptable risk" and could be exploited by a hacker to take control of any or all computers on a vulnerable network.
