Microsoft pushes out new security and privacy related updates for Windows 10

Microsoft Releases New Security And Privacy Updates For Windows 10

Microsoft is today rolling out Windows 10 KB4134661 and KB4134660 for Creators Update (version 1703) and Fall Creators Update (version 1709), respectively.

KB4134660 on Microsoft Update Catalog website.

Trump Tower transcripts released
Trump Jr. said in a statement on Wednesday that he was glad the Judiciary Committee had released its record of his statements. Manafort's notes also contain references to "tied into Cheney" and "active sponsors of RNC" without any further explanation.

Microsoft officials also noted that Office Insiders on the Fast Ring can now try out integration of single sign-in across Windows 10 April 2018 Update and Office 365.

As to the timeframe for a solution for these Toshiba SSDs, Microsoft believes that a fix will be ready in early June; so hopefully within a month.

Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith for 'dirty' play
When asked about the altercation, Smart told reporters he was just trying to stick up for a teammate. And you go and take two hands to the back; that's a dirty shot.

While we already covered some of the biggest stories from both the events, one bit that was missed and which would actually be a very useful feature for the end users is the availability of Windows 10 April 2018 Update's Nearby Share for Android and iOS, as well.

As for the other two updates Microsoft had released today, their main topic is privacy and the intention is to spam users with notifications that show an improved privacy experience until the users get the April 2018 Update on their Windows 10 PCs.

Oil climbs on Middle East unrest, with Brent notching another multiyear high
USA light crude was 26 cents lower at $70.69 a barrel, also not far off its highest since November 2014. West Texas Intermediate , the USA marker, is $3.21 a barrel below Middle East benchmark Dubai.

Meanwhile, if you have one of these Toshiba drives, and you've already upgraded to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, then subsequently noticed a drop in your battery life, you may want to revert back to the previous version of Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update). The updates contain only Intel-specific code, which Microsoft has agreed to distribute to ensure more users are protected. Those who'd prefer to wait for Microsoft to begin pushing the update to them will begin seeing it arrive via Windows Update starting May 8.
