The code in question is from Microsoft's Shared Source Kit, which is available to OEMs anyway, and Microsoft says relatively little is new, though El Reg has said it believes the figure to be more like 32TB.

Soon after the new Petya ransomware threat took over thousands of PCs in United States of America and several countries in Europe, Microsoft has announced the security updates that its Windows 10 Fall Creators update will feature in order to protect the users better. Given the past trends of older Insider builds, combined with the enthusiast nature of the Windows Mobile user base and the lackluster nature of Microsoft's recent builds, it's clear that Windows phones are dying out.

Exploit Guard is basically Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) security software reworked for the new operating system.

And that brings us to Windows phones. Theoretically, local zero day attacks should become less frequent. It was the third critical Windows Defender vulnerability Project Zero researchers have uncovered in the past seven weeks. This means as well that this virtual copy of Windows has no access to credentials or user data.

A targeted user who had real-time protection turned on wasn't required to click on the booby-trapped file or take any other action other than visit the malicious website or receive the malicious e-mail or instant message.

Administrators may restrict some of the functionality however. The new cloud-based variant of Windows 10 is targeted primarily towards the education sector and is created to run on low-end devices as well.

The Windows Defender ATP tools will also include the Device Guard application control tool to automatically prevent untrusted code running on an organisation's deployed devices. Administrators may set up a list of whitelisted software that is allowed to run, or use code integrity policies to block unsigned code execution.

The Fall Creators Update will be released to the general public in October, though numerous updates are already available to those testing the platform as part of the Windows Insider Program.

The fixes are available through the unusual Windows Update channels.

Microsoft yesterday released a huge non-security update for Windows 10 systems and announced a new update framework it's testing out on Windows Insiders.

Here is a promotional video that Microsoft published that provides explanation of the new features in less than 5 minutes.

One year after the initial launch of Windows 10, Microsoft rolled out the Anniversary Update, which introduced useful tweaks but was a little light on new features.

Now You: What's your take on these new features?
