New Zero-Day Exploit for Bug in Windows 10 Task Scheduler

Saturday, 25 May, 2019

But, ironically it has put Microsoft Windows 10 users in trouble.

As per ZDNet, Windows sends two kinds of updates for its users. Still, as security defenses in recent versions of Windows and other operating systems have improved, the value of these types of exploits has grown, since they are often the only way to bypass security sandboxes and similar protections.

Microsoft wants to let you take more control over what apps you have on your computer by removing unnecessary built-in apps.

Fortunately, one of the new features of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update is a handy Windows 10 update icon that lives in your taskbar.

There is, however, a catch. This is because many users were experiencing some problem with the System Restore Feature even after Microsoft Windows 10 update. Initially, as the new version graduates the Release Preview ring, it'll be available for devices running version 1803 and version 1809, clicking the Download and install now button manually through Windows Update, and automatically on devices running a release that is getting close to the end of service.

Then we come to what is perhaps the strangest new feature shipping with this update: the ability to turn your game screenshots into memes.

Microsoft's May 2019 security fixes have again disrupted the normal functioning of some endpoint security products on certain Windows versions. Once you are at the update menu, check to see if the update is already offered and, if so, launch it, If you don't see it upon landing on the menu, you can select "Check for updates" to see if yours is read.

After the update is completed, you will be able to choose when to reboot and apply it. If a user never selects the "download and install now" option, s/he will be able to delay deploying a Windows 10 feature update nearly right up to the time that support for it expires. Assuming you've got the Spotify app installed on your machine, you can now control music playback and volume through the Game Bar.

We'll have more in-depth coverage about the Windows 10 May 2019 Update soon, but it brings several new features to the desktop OS. Those willing to install the update right away must have either version 1803 or 1809 now installed with the latest monthly patch.

One last deadline to keep in mind: If you're still running Windows 7, you have until January to upgrade for free. She has previously dropped Windows zero-days that can be exploited to delete or tamper with operating system components, elevate local privileges, and so on.
