Microsoft has rolled out a security update for Windows 10 and Windows 11. As reported by Bleeping Computer, the emergency security update fixes the Acropalypse privacy vulnerability of the Snipping tool. The report adds that the Acropalypse vulnerability is caused by image editors not properly removing the cropped image data.
“For example, if you take a screenshot and crop out sensitive information, such as account numbers, you should have reasonable expectations that this cropped data will be removed when saving the image,” adds the report.
Microsoft has revealed that this security issue affects both the Snip and Sketch app on Windows 10 and the Snipping Tool on Windows 11. But the tech giant has specified that the issue has affected only the images created in a very specific set of steps. Microsoft also added that after installing the security update the Windows 11 Snipping Tool will be version 10.2008.3001.0, and Windows 10 Snip & Sketch will be version 11.2302.20.0.
In order to install the latest update, users need to open the Microsoft Store and go to Library> Get Updates and then install the latest version of the Windows Snipping tool.
Recently, Microsoft added two new features to its AI-powered search engine Bing. The company added AI-powered Stories and Knowledge Cards to Bing. Microsoft said that Knowledge Cards are designed to help Bing users explore topics that interest them. These cards provide facts, image-based timelines, polls, actions and related topics to a searched query. On the other hand, AI-generated stories provide users more ways to consume bite-sized information. These additional ways include text, images, video and audio.
