Windows 10 April 2018 Update is crashing some systems with Intel SSDs

Windows 10 April 2018 Update is crashing some systems with Intel SSDs

Third-party clipboard tools that extend the Clipboard are popular applications on Windows and it seems likely that Microsoft will please part of the userbase with the improved Clipboard that it plans to integrate in Windows 10 natively.

The update for the Mail app is available from the Microsoft Store now. Unlike many online publications, we don't have a paywall or run banner advertising, because we want to keep our journalism open, without influence or the need to chase traffic. There are some unexpected light colors in File Explorer and Common File dialog that Microsoft is working to fix. "Opening any malicious documents with "double kill" allows attackers to control victims' computers without their knowledge, making ransomware infection, eavesdropping and data leakage convenient and stealthy".

There are a total of 21 critical CVEs to patch in May, one of which, CVE-2018-8174, is a remote code execution flaw in the Windows VBScript Engine which could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

Microsoft at the time didn't confirm the vaguely detailed bug but now appears to have filled in a few gaps in an advisory that credits Qihoo 360 Core Security.

Be amazed by the new Dockable Control in Microsoft's sizzle video below.

"The attacker could also take advantage of compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements", Microsoft says. "These websites could contain specially crafted content that could exploit the vulnerability". This was the most requested feature by the Windows Insiders and Microsoft has finally adhered to their request. If you're running Insider build 17666, turning on Windows 10's dark theme will enable it across all the apps and system UI that support it, including File Explorer.

Joe Burrow's decision is a win-win for everyone
Burrow redshirted in 2015 and appeared in 11 games as a reserve in the past two seasons, passing for 287 yards and two touchdowns. Joe Burrow is leaving Ohio State , and there should be a pretty high demand for his services on the graduate transfer market.

Microsoft's Tuesday security alert also references fixes from Adobe.

Firstly, Microsoft has only talked about its own Edge browser. It advises there is "no workaround for this issue", and if you have faced this problem rolling back to Windows 10 version 1709 is recommended.

Meanwhile the second zero-day is CVE-2018-8120, which is an elevation-of-privilege vulnerability in the Win32k component.

"An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user".

In terms of prioritization, we recommend patching user-facing assets first, with a focus on OS, browser patches, and Office to resolve scripting engine vulnerabilities.
