Windows 10 is finally getting a new clipboard experience

Exploiting this vulnerability requires a logged-in user to run a program.

Microsoft will begin to test these Sets and Timeline changes with the next Windows Insider Preview, and it may or may not ship with the next major Windows 10 update.

Adobe also issued a patch for CVE-2018-4944, which allows for arbitrary code execution (at user level) if exploited. It's called a "use-after-free" flaw and involves the manner in which the engine deals with computer memory allowing attackers to execute code.

Microsoft said attackers could exploit this bug by hosting an exploit in website ads or on a website, conning people into viewing malicious content within the Internet Explorer browser.

In this case, both exploits have been patched but that does not mean end users and administrators are going to patch their systems in a timely manner. "CVE-2018-8120 is an elevation of privilege vulnerability affecting Windows 7, Server 2008, and Server 2008 R2", said Wiseman. A failure of the Win32k component allows for arbitrary code to be executed in kernel mode. "An attacker could then run a specially crafted application that could exploit the vulnerability and take control of an affected system". The flaw in Windows 10 and Windows Server, designated CVE-2018-8170, had been publicly reported but has not yet been seen in in-the-wild attacks.

Android P Beta is available for non-Google devices
Google Assistant is rolling out in more countries this year including the UK, France, Korea, Japan, and Canada. Similarly in Google Photos, it will now be easier to share a photo instantly via smart, in-line suggestions.

Microsoft's Tuesday security alert also references fixes from Adobe.

"An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user". "That would definitely make it so that the OS updates this month are a high priority". CVE-2018-8174 affects not only IE but also any other projects that embed the IE web rendering engine.

As regular readers will be well aware, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update arrived just in the nick of time, a few hours before May arrived.

Researchers at Google's Project Zero revealed the Device Guard bypass on April 19 following failed attempts by Microsoft to negotiate a deferral of disclosure until the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, which was first released to Windows 10 users on April 30. Business users can continue to receive security-only updates for six months, Microsoft says, or organizations can pay for pricey extended-support contracts.
