Microsoft patches 87 vulnerabilities in October 2020 Patch Tuesday update

Microsoft also released a cumulative update for Windows 10 Version Next 20231.1005 with KB4586238 for Windows Insiders in the Dev channel. Well, phone makers are offering users the option to choose the refresh rate as per their own convenience. It is now unknown when the update will be available to users.

Windows 10 changes the way programs are added to the list of apps that run on first startup. The new version, which will be offered as an intermediate update, will not bring major innovations.

For installing the latest security updates, Windows users can head to Start Settings Update & Security Windows Update, or by selecting Check for Windows updates.

Microsoft states that the CVE-2020-16898 bug, also known as "Bad Neighbor", is a remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in the Windows TCP/IP stack that can also be used to trigger a denial of service (DoS) leading to a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). These features appear as theme-sensitive splash screen and Spotlight.

The most risky bug that was patched this month is CVE-2020-16898, which is a remote code execution vulnerability within the Windows TCP/IP stack. On the desktop in scrolling browser windows, for example, you might be pleased with the result on nearly any modern PC.

Coming to another leaked feature called "Desktop spotlight", it seems soon users will be able to set Bing Spotlight wallpapers for your desktop background.

A Royal Oman Air Force plane flew them out of Sana'a, Yemen, shortly after the aid and militants were delivered to the rebels. Those cuts mean reducing services at 300 health centers and in food distributions across the country.

Live previews for pinned sites aren't enabled for all Insiders yet, so you may see a grey window when hovering over the thumbnail in the taskbar. In fact, this feature was now available on the lock screen.

Windows 10, version 1809 (available since November 13, 2018) will no longer receive updates after November 10, 2020.

Two other critical RCE flaws (CVE-2020-16967 and CVE-2020-16968) affect Windows Camera Codec Pack, permitting an attacker to send a malicious file that, when opened, exploits the flaw to run arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

Note that when you've got efficiency points with Windows 10's built-in search expertise, Microsoft lately launched a brand new Registry worth that turns off Bing outcomes to enhance the accuracy of native outcomes.

As Windows Latest reports, if there is an undocumented change for testers for the 21H1 update, a notification is now displayed on the Startup app notifying the user that the program being installed is configured to run on startup.
