Google publishes a new vulnerability in Windows 10

Windows 10

Windows 10 has a serious security flaw or that's what he thinks at least Google, which notified the Redmond people on October 21, without obtaining any response. For this reason, the search giant has decided to publish that notification, something that has not sat well at all with those of Satya Nadella who have said; "We believe in coordinated vulnerability disclosure, but Google's statements put users at risk."

The fact is that at the moment this serious vulnerability has not been solved, and since it was notified by Google it has been used freely. Also and unfortunately for all of us who use Windows 10 there is no security patch.

And is that we are facing a vulnerability type zero day or what is the same that does not have a similar precedent in Windows. Specifically, this serious security flaw resides in a security privilege in the Windows kernel that allows it to be used as an escape sandbox for security, as we can read in the Google statement.

Of course the search giant has also wanted to point out that this vulnerability does not affect Google Chrome since the web browser is able to block the file that is related to the security flaw.

Now let's hope that Microsoft will solve this serious security flaw as soon as possible, now that Google has made it public, although we are sure that they have not solved it yet by launching a security patch, it is because it is not a simple task at all.

Do you understand that Google makes public a vulnerability found in Windows 10?.
