This is an example of why Microsoft's software ought not even be considered by a serious professional. It ticks all the boxes. Denial of service without user interaction. Security vulnerability with remote root potential. Workaround requires disclosed remote root potential. Recovery requires hands on the device.
It is only going to get worse.
You will be thrilled to know that way out in Ephrata, WA they have had gigabit fiber to the home for 14 years, and in gritty Tacoma just south Click! Network sells 100mbps Internet - both through the power utility. But in Seattle, no. Not you. Those power utilities were grandfathered in from before the Qwest/Comcast Protection Act was made a stare law. That is why internet technology in Washington is almost exactly backward: high speed in rural areas, dialup in Seattle and the capital.
Incidentally, I caught a guy pulling underground fiber in my neighborhood recently and grilled him. Apparently we are finally scheduled for fiber to the home Real Soon Now. The guy said the company "wanted it done yesterday" and that they were definitely bringing fiber to the homes where my home is. Hopefully it will be with a decent company. I didn't recognize the name of the company but apparently they are going to lease it out anyway.
