Windows 10 to Let You Alt+Tab Between Browser Tabs and Apps

Windows 10 to Let You Alt+Tab Between Browser Tabs and Apps

Windows 10 to Let You Alt+Tab Between Browser Tabs and Apps

The statement is part of Microsoft's official notes regarding the ways in which Microsoft 365 empowers developers to create smart apps.

Microsoft is also working on supporting different shapes for fly-out windows, for example, if you hover over a contact name on mail app, a contact card appears in a small flyout window. "Opening any malicious documents with "double kill" allows attackers to control victims' computers without their knowledge, making ransomware infection, eavesdropping and data leakage convenient and stealthy".

In a web-based attack, specially designed web pages could exploit the same vulnerability when using Internet Explorer.

"This is the first time we've seen a URL moniker used to load an IE exploit, and we believe this technique will be used heavily by malware authors in the future", wrote security analysts from Kaspersky Labs.

Microsoft has been testing a new feature called Cloud Clipboard for Windows 10 and it was originally expected to launch in Redstone 4, but eventually held back for next version of the operating system.

Be amazed by the new Dockable Control in Microsoft's sizzle video below. The attacker could also take advantage of compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements.

Microsoft this week issued its first Patch Tuesday cumulative update for PCs on the recently released Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803).

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

In total, Microsoft's May Patch Tuesday roundup included 68 security patches, with 21 listed as critical, 45 rated important and two listed low in severity. It has been assigned the vulnerability identifier CVE-2018-1039. This allows for a standard user account to obtain full system access, although it should be noted that a user must be logged in already to perform the exploit.

The other flaw that has been exploited in the wild prior to today's updates relates to a Win32k vulnerability that allows an attacker to elevate privileges.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Automatic Updates then installed the update again and the issue returned.
