Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 update, fixes Edge browser issues
According to Changelog, the update prevents the browser from caching URLs when viewing sites through private browsing.
Microsoft is introducing an update for Windows 10 that fixes some issues with the company’s Edge browser. According to the change log, the update prevented the browser from caching the URL when viewing sites through private browsing. It was previously found that Edge’s InPrivate feature is caching visited URLs, which can reveal a user’s web history to anyone who has been able to retain their hard drive.
Changelog also shows that the company has patched a security issue where it has allowed suspicious websites to run malicious code and install malware on Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11. In addition, it fixes issues that do not allow simultaneous installation of apps, and updates from the Windows Store and Windows Update, respectively. Other changes include improved security for the Windows 10 kernel, as well as .NET Framework, Windows Journal, Active Directory Federation Services, NPS Radius Server, kernel-mode drivers, and other security updates to WebDAV. This is also the first time that Microsoft has provided a detailed changelog for Windows 10 updates.
Microsoft launched the first major update for Windows 10 in August last year. The company says it is a growing update to the operating system and has only fixed bugs in the system. Microsoft did not elaborate on what exactly the update did. The statement only states that the update addresses non-security changes and enhances the performance of Windows 10 with new features and enhancements.
