Microsoft hastened to release the appropriate patch for the so-called PrintNightmare, for systems Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10, and even Windows 7, although it does not support it officially now. Microsoft’s recommendation is strong and urges you to immediately install the available patch for all versions of Windows.
