    Alternative mitigation
    >1. Disable Remote Desktop Services if they are not required.

    This is a near zero low-risk vulnerability for client users, the default settings for the affected service are Manual(Not Started) and require the user to initiate or actually make use of the services.

    On enterprise or server builds where the service is set to accept user connections for headless config is where this worm will proliferate.

    its certainly not sasser levels of serious where LSASS is running on every machine.

    No thanks. Just installed an update on W7 a few weeks ago and now my startup time takes twice as long.
