NSA reports major security flaw in Windows 10, patch released

The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) alerted Microsoft to a serious security flaw in the Windows 10 as well as the Windows Server 2016 and 2019 operating system that could open computers to major breaches or surveillance. The NSA said the flaw is severe and easily exploited. In the past, the NSA has not disclosed vulnerabilities they found but used them. Microsoft released a patch on Tuesday.

They were looking for security flaws to protect us... Not to surveil us... Really..

Article didn't go into the most damaging part. This method could be used to affect transfer of crypto.

Interesting they've been using the loopholes... now they're telling everyone about them. Are they worried that someone else could use these loopholes more easily than before or they have found a better way and no longer need them and now it's just a white washing PR campaign.
