On May 14, 2019, Microsoft announced and released fixes for a Remote Code Execution vulnerability (CVE-2019-0708) in Remote Desktop Services, formerly known as Terminal Services, in some of its older operating systems. This vulnerability could impact Keysight products that use Windows 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7), or Windows XP operating systems. The vulnerability does not exist in products using a Windows 10 based operating system. More information on the vulnerability is available from Microsoft at Prevent a worm by updating Remote Desktop Services (CVE2019-0708).

As of July 17, 2019, Keysight is unaware of any active exploits of this vulnerability, but as a precaution, is strongly recommending that all Windows 7, WES7, and Windows XP based products be updated with the latest Microsoft security patches. Updates for Windows 7 and WES7 products can be performed using the Windows Update capability found on your instrument, or by downloading the appropriate update directly from the Windows 7 Microsoft Update Catalog page and installing the patch manually. For Windows XP products, the update must be downloaded and installed manually from the Windows XP Microsoft Update Catalog page.
