IT firm Neuways has issued an emergency security patch and protected customers from a recent flaw affecting hundreds of millions of devices around the world.
Millions of Dell desktop computers, laptops, notebooks and tablets were found to be unsafe due to a 12-year-old vulnerability that had been recently discovered by security researchers. The flaw could allow cyber criminals the ability to bypass security protocols, execute malicious code and move laterally between areas of a business’ internal network – causing devastating data breaches in the process.
As a result of Neuways’ quick thinking, patches were issued remotely to over 500 Dell devices its customers rely upon to operate, with over 300 customers avoiding becoming the next victims of cyber criminals.
Managing Director, Martin Roberts, said: “Our support team have yet again delivered swift action to save hundreds of our customers from being vulnerable to malicious cyber criminals.”
