<p><span lang=\"EN-US\">As threat actors improve on their speed in reacting to real-world vulnerabilities, it is strongly advised to act quickly in updating with the antidote to these flaws before it’s too late. Although there are no current reports on any exploitation, this can change without a moment’s notice in times of very sophisticated adversaries looking to take advantage of unpatched weaknesses. Furthermore and for extra protection, any network access to critical infrastructure should ideally only be carried out via a VPN.</span></p>
