Why should I take this course?

Microsoft released a security bulletin defining the Follina vulnerability on May 30th, 2022, with a base CVSS score of 7.8. This vulnerability is rated as “High” due to the ability of attackers to execute remote code on a system, install programs, modify data, or create new accounts in the context allowed by the user’s rights. This variation has made the attack very enticing for Advanced Persistent Threat actors (APTs) and cyber criminal organizations because detections are more immature and thus the potential for impacting organizations more easily is greater.
