To install Windows 11 on older PCs, you need to opt out of security updates

Published

Microsoft has allowed Windows 11 to be installed on legacy PCs, but has reserved the right to deny them updates in the future.

Microsoft has officially re-released the PC Health Check application, which allows users to check their computers for upgrade readiness to Windows 11, which is scheduled for release on October 5 this year.

Previously, the company had to remove this app because it was misleading users. A more robust version of PC Health Check was released in August, but it was only available to members of the Windows Insider program. Now you can download the application here (need to scroll to the bottom of the page).

Back in August, Microsoft announced that it would not block the installation of Windows 11 on computers with older CPUs that were not whitelisted CPUs suitable for installing the latest OS. This means users of PCs with outdated processors will be able to install Windows 11 on them, but Microsoft reserves the right to deny further updates, including security updates, if these processors become an issue in the future.

When installing Windows 11 on computers with outdated processors, a warning window appears on the screen stating that unsupported Windows 11 systems will no longer be able to receive updates. Whether this applies to critical security updates, Microsoft did not specify.

“By clicking on“ Accept ”, you confirm that you have read and understood this warning,” the notice says.

The security specialist was able to hack the PS5 through

Security specialist Andy Nguyen was able to bypass the protection of the PS5 game console and “hack” it using an old vulnerability that he also used on the PS4. It concerns the features of the exFAT file system in Sony’s implementation. In 2020, Nguyen managed to jailbreak his PS4 using the same vulnerability. As a result, the specialist received full access to the system core.

The security specialist was able to

The researcher suggested that during the transition from FreeBSD9 to FreeBSD11, the patch that closed the vulnerability somehow stopped working or was removed during the upgrade. The specialist has already reported the vulnerability to the company, which paid him $10,000. The same amount Nguyen received for the same vulnerability on PS4.

The PlayStation hack allows the user to install emulators of other consoles, play pirated versions of games, and also unlock some features that are not normally available to users.

At the same time, Nguyen explained that the error he discovered was just one of a chain of errors required for a full PlayStation 5 jailbreak. To date, the newest console has not been hacked.

Group-IB digital forensics specialist Igor Mikhailov told the Prime agency why you should not use a fingerprint on your phone.

According to him, locking a smartphone with a fingerprint reduces its security, as the fingerprint can be copied. In addition, it is possible to unlock the gadget with someone else’s fingerprints, especially on devices with an old sensor.

The most secure way to unlock a smartphone, according to Mikhailov, is to use complex passwords. He advised to turn off the fingerprint login and leave only the pin code.

As for unlocking a smartphone by face, Apple’s Face ID system is the most reliable, but even its enthusiasts managed to deceive with photos and masks of the owners.
