Two security researchers have published details about a vulnerability in the Windows Printing Service which impacts all Windows versions.

According to a Report of ZDNet : The vulnerability codenamed 'PrintDemon' which is located in Windows Print Spooler (Windows component responsible for managing print operations). The service sends data to be printed to a USB port for physically connected printers. In a report published, security researchers Alex Ionescu & Yarden Shafir said they found a bug in this old component that can be abused to hijack the Printer Spooler internal mechanism. The bug can not be used to break into a Windows client remotely over the internet, so it's not something that could be exploited to hack Windows systems over the internet.
