At the beginning of this year, an NTFS vulnerability appeared in Windows 10. If users access a specific path or view special files, the NTFS volume will be damaged, and then Chkdsk needs to be used to repair it.
However, Chkdsk cannot be completely repaired, and even prevents the victim from booting.
Microsoft has been testing the repair patch in the Windows Insiders community since February this year. Now the patch will be pushed to all users. Microsoft claims that it solves the CVE-2021-28312 (Windows NTFS Denial of Service Vulnerability) issue.
Foreign media Bleeping Computer found that after installing the latest cumulative update on Tuesday, the NTFS corruption bug has been resolved. Users can now check and install the KB5001330 and KB5001337 updates.
Of course, the main update of this version update is to delete the old Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10. But Windows 10 update may also bring some new bugs.
Naijatechnews understands that although this update solves the NTFS problem, it also seems to bring other bugs to users, such as performance degradation and access to shared folders.
After installing the latest update of Windows 10, when you try to access the problematic path, the same prompt that appeared in the 21322 beta version of Insiders build version 21322 will appear, that is, “The directory name is invalid”, and the NTFS volume will no longer be marked For damage.
