Microsoft has not forgotten about Windows 10 – the OS received an update with new features

Published

Following yesterday’s big update to Windows 11, Microsoft has introduced an update for the older operating system – Windows 11.

Microsoft has not forgotten about Windows 10 - the OS received an update with new features

The Windows 10 update, numbered KB5010415, is not as massive and impressive as the Windows 11 update, but it also brings not only fixes for remaining problems and errors, but also a couple of new features.

For example, users can now transfer cookies between Internet Explorer’s Microsoft Edge mode and Microsoft Edge. This can be handy for web developers or those using online services that still work with Internet Explorer.

Microsoft has also added the ability to mount and remove NVMe storage without shutting down the computer (called hot swap). Again, this is a feature that will probably not impress most casual users, but corporate and power users may find it very useful.

The optional Windows 10 update KB5010415 is distributed through Windows Update (Windows Update). Fixes from it will also be included in the mandatory Windows 10 updates in March or April 2022.

Google is making an important improvement to the way it captures Street View data for Google Maps with its new camera. In the image below, it’s a new modular system that weighs around 7kg and is no bigger than a house cat, according to Google. The new camera can be installed on any car with a roof rack and controlled from a mobile device. Previously, Google Street View cameras required a special vehicle mount and sophisticated processing equipment to operate.

The new camera will allow Google to expand the Street View feature. Google says the new camera will be in use next year.

It is also announced that Street View Studio will allow users to quickly and bulk upload panoramic image sequences to Google Maps.

“Alien” and “Predator” hunt for Android-smartphones. Details about the new spyware

Alien and Predator hunt for Android smartphones Details about the new

Android users have been targeted by a new spyware called Alien that can download malware or the Predator virus. The spyware was allegedly developed by Cytrox in North Macedonia.

Google claims that several exploits, which collectively fall under the Alien spyware category, were sold by Cytrox to various government-backed groups. CitizenLab, an online security research company, has also discovered several attacks, and Google claims they are all related to Alien spyware.

Google claims that zero-day exploits based on Alien spyware are used alongside some older exploits. It appears that malware developers are actively trying to take advantage of the time difference between when some critical bugs were fixed but not flagged as security issues and when those fixes were fully rolled out to the Android ecosystem.

The virus spreads mainly through email. Victims receive email messages with suspicious links. Either link redirects victims to a website that installs malware.

The virus can potentially record audio, hide applications, and perform a number of other actions. Google claims to have sent out patches to fix the vulnerabilities. However, it is important that Android users remain cautious when opening emails from unfamiliar sources. Also, email users should never click on links embedded in emails without first verifying the identity of the sender.

Google is preparing to introduce an innovation that will delight many users of the mobile version of the proprietary Chrome browser.

You can turn off

We are talking about the ability to remove the Discover ribbon (Recommendations) from the Chrome New Tab page.
