Windows 10 has password vulnerability
Researcher Tavis Ormandi of Google discovered that the Keeper password manager built into Windows 10 has a critical vulnerability in the proprietary plug-in for browsers. Thanks to the gaps, attackers can access the saved passwords of users through infected websites.Initially, the expert found an error only in the image of Windows 10 for developers, but Reddit also reported a vulnerability in public copies of the system. Microsoft reacted to the exposure on the Internet and left a comment.
According to a representative of the Redmond Corporation, Keeper developers have already released a fix for the problem, so computers with the latest versions of the software are not endangered. Also, the team noted that the vulnerability affected only those who used the plug-in Keeper in browsers.
In addition, enthusiasts asked the corporation whether the products of third-party developers integrated with Windows go through the same rigorous verification as Microsoft’s own software, but the company did not answer this question.
