Microsoft Releases Cumulative Update KB4016871 for Windows 10 Creators Update

"NScript is the component of mpengine that evaluates any filesystem or network activity that looks like JavaScript", Ormandy says on the Chromium bug report page. "To be clear, this is an unsandboxed and highly privileged JavaScript interpreter that is used to evaluate untrusted code, by default on all modern Windows systems".

If you have tried to update the system and have encountered this problem, all you have to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and return to the previous version of Windows. This time, however, Microsoft acted with uncharacteristic haste. This is the new way to build apps and user interface in Windows 10 and there is at least one session that indicates more to follow after the keynote on the 11th of May.

Windows 10 was said to be getting a huge Anniversary update, which would be free to all Windows 10 users. Although they use JavaScript the most, it's Rust and Linux they really love, according to the latest Stack Overflow developer survey. This will open the About Windows dialog box, which displays the Windows 10 version that's running on your computer.

Considering that Microsoft is saying that Windows 10 is the last major version of Windows, and all signs point to this being true, then dropping the number 10 makes sense. This Vulnerability is located in Windows 7, 8, 8.1, RT, 10, and in various business versions of the operating system.

Microsoft is trying hard to get all apps to move to the UWP framework and Windows 10 S is their latest effort to convince developers to move their apps to the store.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has stated there is no way one can download Windows 10 S. It will only come pre-installed on a device, which makes it the only way to experience the new Windows 10 variant. We're hoping to see its extensions support broaden for developers, and hear more about its plans for web apps.

At the recently concluded EDU event, Microsoft launched an app called the View Mixed Reality that allows users of Windows 10 device to leverage the power of augmented reality. "Windows 10 was designed [to be serviced] as a service, whereby feature updates are required a few times a year".

"The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting the manner in which the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine scans specially crafted files", Microsoft said.

Just yesterday, the first Cortana-based Echo rival from Harman Karmon was announced, with a release planned for this autumn. Microsoft's ambitious project using the mixed reality technology with HoloLens is well-known too. This slide show talks about all that and more when Microsoft kicks off its Build 2017 conference May 10 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. But as it turns out Microsoft was faster off the ball than expected. In order to stay on the current update cycle, it would be crucial to upgrade.
