Kaspersky Says Its Virus-Removal Tool Not at Fault for Bugs in Windows 10 Update
Microsoft has recently pulled a Windows 10 security update after discovering issues causing the installation to fail or breaking down certain features if the installation was successful.
The update, which landed on Windows 10 as KB4524244, was supposed to resolve a security vulnerability that was discovered in Kaspersky Rescue Disk and which was publicly disclosed back in April 2019. While Kaspersky itself resolved it in August, Microsoft implemented additional patches to protect users running older versions of the software.
“Microsoft have updated a special database of revoked UEFI signatures (UEFI Revocation List File) in February 2020. This has been done to prevent attacks against Secure Boot using doctored previous versions of Kaspersky Rescue Disk,” Kaspersky explains.
Microsoft says update wouldn’t be reissued
