[2021-07-01] VCEA IT Emergency Maintenance – All VCEA AD Domain Controllers
We will be updating our Active Directory Domain Controllers across all VCEA AD domains today to mitigate a serious vulnerabilities that are being exploited in the wild. (CVE-2021-1675 and “#printnightmare”)
We will be disabling the spooler service on all AD DCs as a mitigation. This should have no customer impact, as none of our AD DCs should be involved in the printing process.
