Microsoft Released Patch for the Critical Windows Bug

Previously, we saw Microsoft issuing an unhappy statement at Google’s disclosure of Windows bug, now the company has finally released the patch for it. The fix will remove critical system vulnerability that was being actively used by the hackers.

Microsoft released the patch for the Windows 10 bug on Nov. 8, Wednesday, which is supposed to fix the flaw in the Win32System that allowed hackers to interfere with user’s computer. According to the tech giant, the bug had left Window 10 systems vulnerable to phishing attacks like installing programs and manipulate users’ data.


Windows-maker also pointed out that a Russian-linked group Strontium had been exploiting the security breach that also affected Adobe Flash player alongside Windows kernel. That’s why keeping the operating system’s Defender turned on is a highly recommended feature because it actively tracks malware and notifies computer owners about these cyber crimes.

Windows Defender serves as the front line of defense for Windows users. Microsoft is confident that even if the newly released patch is not installed on the system, the Defender can alone track the malicious attacks if its Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection is enabled. Google did not respond to Microsoft’s dislike on the disclosure but did clarify in the disclosure blog that a notification had been issued to the company 10 days prior to going public about it.
