Caution: One short Windows 10 command can damage the drive

Published

on

An unresolved security threat has been detected in the Windows 10 operating system – with the help of a small command, you can damage the NTFS file system on the drive.

A security specialist drew attention to the problem Jonas L… Moreover, he already tried to draw attention to her in August and October 2020, and now he did it for the third time. And now he was heard. BleepingComputer conducted “multiple tests” and confirmed that the vulnerability worked.

As BleepingComputer points out, this little one-line command can hide in a Windows shortcut file, ZIP archive, batch file, and so on. Such a disguised command, when activated, will crash and corrupt the file system index, instantly destroying an NTFS-formatted drive.

According to the specialist, the vulnerability has been working since Windows 10 version 1803, released in the spring of 2018. What is most unpleasant, the command can be activated by an ordinary user without any elevated rights and privileges in the system.

It is strongly discouraged to check the vulnerability on your own or someone else’s work computer, since the drive will most likely become inaccessible. Tests can only be considered safe on virtual machines that you can easily restore a backup.

Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards Non Reference XFX

XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.

The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.

You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.

Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.

The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.

Rumors that the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB video card, canceled right before the release, will return under the name GeForce RTX 4070 Ti have been fully confirmed. Colorful has completely declassified the RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe 3D card, and its specs are exactly the same as those of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB.

Although the cooler is different from the cooler that Nvidia equips its video cards with, the Colorful RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe is the reference model in everything else. It is built on the AD104 GPU and has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 21 GHz. The base frequency of the GPU is 2310 MHz.

There is only one connector for connecting additional power – a 16-pin one, to which GeForce RTX 4090 users have a lot of complaints. However, the consumption of the RTX 4070 Ti is significantly lower, so it is hardly worth worrying about the melting of the connectors in this case. Colorful doesn’t specify the number of CUDA cores, but it should be 7680, which is exactly what Nvidia claimed for the RTX 4080 12 GB.
