Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 are at risk from Hot Potato exploit !
The versions of Windows 7, 8, 10, Server 2008, and 2012 Server are vulnerable to Hot Potato exploit, which allows hackers to gain full control of a PC or laptop.
Security researchers from Foxglove Security have discovered that virtually all recent versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system are vulnerable to an escalation exploit privilege.
By linking a series of known Windows security blanks, Foxglove Security researchers have discovered a way to invade PCs / systems / laptops running Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 and Windows Server 2008 / 2010.

Foxglove researchers have named exploit 'Hot Potato'. Hot Potato is based on three different types of attacks, some of which have been discovered far back ... at the beginning of the new millennium, 2000. By linking this together, hackers can gain remote access to PCs / laptops that run the above versions of Windows.
Surprisingly, some of the exploits found in 2000 have not yet been repaired by Microsoft on the grounds that by repairing them, the company will break compatibility between different versions of the operating system.
Hot Potato is a set of three different security issues for the Windows operating system. One of the flaws is a local NBNS (NetBIOS Name Service) spoofing technique that is 100% effective. Potential hackers can use this flaw to create fake WAP (Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol) proxy servers, and an NTLM authentication protocol against Windows NTLM.
Exploiting these exploits in a chained way allows hackers to gain access to the PC / laptop by upgrading and acquiring the rights of an application from the lowest rank to system-level privileges.

Foxglove researchers created their exploit on a proof-of-concept code released by 2014 from the Google Project Zero team and presented their findings at the ShmooCon security conference last weekend.
They also have proof-of-concept videos on YouTube that seem to break the Windows 7, 8, 10, 2008, and 2012
