Microsoft’s emergency PrintNightmare patch is a nightmare for some printers

Microsoft acted quickly to put out a fire this week by releasing an emergency security patch to stop a particularly nasty vulnerability known as PrintNightmare from exposing users to remote execution of malicious code. 

The emergency patch went all the way back to Windows 7, a version that has been out of support since January of last year. While the update eliminated the threat, it also introduced a new issue. Zebra printer brand confirmed to The Verge that the patch left many of its users unable to print (via Windows Central).
