So apparently this is trending:
https://www.forbes.com/sites/daveywinder/2020/01/14/windows-10-extraordinarily-serious-security-warn...

If you check the linked Twitter accounts in the article, they do seem credible and this does seem like a real thing. There used to be a place to sing up and receive alerts from Microsoft, but I can't seem to find it anymore. 

Does anyone have any intel on this?

It looks like this patch is available now. Anyone know WHICH patch this is included in?

It's good that none of them were exploited yet
Thanks. That explains the # of the patch, but if you wanted to d/l that one specifically, where does one find it?
