Microsoft has been the architect of its own issues over the last month, with two security patches causing more problems than they fixed. In one patch, users were able to bypass a previously closed flaw to elevate their access privileges. The flaw was discovered by a security researcher in late November. It applies to both Windows 10 and Windows 11 users, and Microsoft are aware of the ongoing issue, with an update in the pipeline to fix the weakness. By releasing the patch, Microsoft actually made Windows more open to attack – hopefully the next one will be more successful.
