UAE cyber threat warning issued

The UAE Cyber Security Council has urged all residents to update a series of Microsoft products, to avoid any breaches or leaks of information and/or personal data.

This is in reaction to Microsoft releasing security updates to address 61 high-risk vulnerabilities, including two that are critical. 

Failure to update could mean a cyber threat actor could exploit some of these newly identified vulnerabilities and take control of the affected system.

The UAE’s Cybersecurity Report 2024, which is jointly issued by the UAE Cyber Security Council and CPX Holding, says there are currently 155,000 vulnerable cyber assets in the UAE, 40 percent of which are over five years old.

If you’re unsure whether you or your business have already been affected, get in touch – we’re always happy to hear from you and always happy to help.
