Microsoft plans to change Alt-Tab behavior on Windows 10

Microsoft plans to change Alt-Tab behavior on Windows 10

Microsoft is finally debuting its anticipated cloud clipboard technology as part of the latest Windows 10 "Redstone 5" test build.

Microsoft's current plan is to make Alt-Tab switch between different tabs of a Sets window as well. This particular vulnerability has been found in use and affects Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 and newer. An exploit known as Double Kill was reported by researchers at Chinese cybersecurity vendor Qihoo 360 in April; the Qihoo 360 Core Security research team reported an advanced persistent threat (APT) campaign was actively exploiting the Internet Explorer zero-day.

Microsoft unveiled its new cross-device content sharing app Your Phone during its developer conference this week, and it was one of the few new noteworthy consumer-facing highlights for the company. Victims that opened the Office document would silently be infected via a malicious webpage opened in the background.

Ynet reported that several cities in the north of Israel also readied bomb shelters, though the army hadn't instructed them to. Fox News however, quoting Western sources said an Iranian military base in Syria was the target of the attack.

"An attacker could also embed an ActiveX control marked "safe for initialization" in an application or Microsoft Office document that hosts the IE rendering engine". However, in introducing and explaining how Your Phone would automagically leverage the Microsoft Graph to bring some fairly impressive cross-device experiences from Android smartphones (and presumably iPhones), Microsoft inadvertently trampled over the concept of their previously announced Cloud Clipboard, which was also met with some fanfare back during its 2017 announcement. "These websites could contain specially crafted content that could exploit the vulnerability".

In brief, the problem is: "When attempting to upgrade to Window 10 April 2018 Update select devices with certain Intel SSDs may enter a UEFI screen reboot or crash repeatedly".

Though it's one more instance of the two tech giants locking horns over disclosure norms, it's not a risky bug.

They are players who can always play. "We will try to reach an agreement because he has had a good season". But no federation has called me to tell me not to play a player and I have not asked for anything.

The second bug under active exploit is an elevation of privilege vulnerability (CVE-2018-8120) impacting a Windows Win32k component.

"To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would first have to access the local machine, and then run a malicious program", Microsoft said in its advisory. Because of this, Microsoft says it is now blocking some Intel SSDs from installing the April 2018 Update.
