New Windows 10 Zero-Day Vulnerability Found: What You Need to Know

New Windows 10 Zero-Day Vulnerability Found: What You Need to Know

A "Throttled" Release for Windows 10 Users who want to manually install Windows 10 version 1903 can check for the "Download and install now" option in their Windows Update settings, according to a blog post by John Cable, director of program management for Windows servicing and delivery. But, ironically it has put Microsoft Windows 10 users in trouble.

This move is another step forward in terms of transparency with these major updates for Windows 10, which is something else Microsoft promised recently, as well as the fact it was going to take far more care over these upgrades (following the disastrous October 2018 Update rollout).

I suggest that you wait with the installation of the May 2019 Update for Windows 10 unless you really, really need it. Things should settle down after a month or two, and you don't risk running into another updating issue that you may spend hours or even days fixing. Select "Check for updates" and, assuming you see the "Download and install now option", initiate the update process. The Windows 10 May 2019 Update includes a new light theme for Windows 10, alongside Kaomoji support, a Windows sandbox feature, and the separation of Cortana and Windows search. Make sure to save your work beforehand and close any open applications. There is the feature update which is a full Windows version upgrade and the second is a cumulative update which is sent on the second Tuesday of each month.

Go to Update & Security Windows Update. Just click the Update now button, and then run the installer.

"We will be taking a measured and throttled approach, allowing us to study device health data as we increase availability via Windows Update", the company said.

The new Windows release health dashboard detailed in the video above is now available, as well.

The good news is that this zero-day is not as easy to exploit as the last. You can check which update blocks are in place here.

Users will have greater control over when and if they update certain Windows features.

If you're anxious about these and future vulnerabilities, consider upgrading your system.

In any event, you may already see a blurb for the "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903".

Now You: What do you expect from this update?
