Security issues with the new update of Windows 10

Microsoft today released the latest Windows 10 operating system upgrade, including improvements in task management, the Cortana digital assistant, and the Edge web browser.

The new version of Windows 10, originally called “Spring Creators” but eventually baptized “Windows 10 April 2018”, will be downloaded as a free upgrade to the users’ computers. All Windows 10 users will be notified gradually through their Windows Update computer that the upgrade will be installed on their machine. If they do not want to, they can choose not to “download” it.

But Microsoft has made it known earlier that it will support the older versions of Windows 10 at most for two years after their release. Windows 10 Anniversary Update, released in August 2016, is no longer backed up by security updates, while the “Creators Update” release, released in April 2017, will cease to be supported from October 9 this year.

So the only way for a user to be sure that their computer will be properly informed about software and security will be to install new upgrades, such as the one released on April 30th.
