With the advent of technology, cyber vulnerabilities are no strangers to our computer systems. And recently, Windows 10 users have found themselves in the crosshairs of a few alarming exploits.
1. The Web Link Crash Exploit:
While casually browsing the internet, users may stumble upon a seemingly harmless link. But a click on this link can potentially crash your Windows 10 PC, rendering you helpless with the notorious Blue Screen of Death. The exploit takes advantage of a vulnerability within the Windows system, enabling the link to send the PC into an automatic startup repair loop. Such exploits, with the power to disrupt the user experience severely, could be manipulated for malicious intent, endangering your device and crucial data.
2. Drive Corruption via Shortcut:
A separate exploit has come to light where a simple action of creating a shortcut can corrupt the entirety of your drive. This vulnerability, if executed, can wreak havoc on your file system, potentially leading to loss of vital data.
