This situation can be easily exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code on the system or to cause a Denial of Service condition.

Another serious risk associated with Visual Design Streams is the potential of being installed through fake security updates or by other means that bypass anti-virus. Due to this reason, it is strongly recommended to apply a whitelist rule that allows only trusted software to be installed.

Strict file permissions

In order to prevent installation of malicious code by exploiting the vulnerabilities, ensure that your files have strict permissions. For example, you can use 755 permissions on the root directory, which means "Everyone has read and write access."

Whitelist only trusted software in your Windows installation
