The first of Microsoft’s security updates to fix a security vulnerability in Windows 10 comes as part of a security update.
In a blog post on Tuesday, Microsoft’s Chief Security Officer Michael Allen noted that the update would only be applied to the computers that Microsoft has verified as running the new OS.
The update is intended to fix the issue that allowed remote code execution through the use of a zero-day vulnerability in the Windows PowerShell Framework that Microsoft introduced in July.
The flaw was discovered by a researcher at the University of California, Berkeley.
Microsoft has previously patched this flaw with a patch for the Windows Defender Anti-Virus product.
It was not immediately clear if that update would be applied with this one.
Microsoft’s update will automatically update the Windows 10 installation directory to the most recent version.
Users can opt to update their installation directory manually by going to the Control Panel and clicking Update and Security, then clicking Update.
Windows 10 will also provide the ability to enable and disable new apps that come to the operating system, but users will still need to run the system with administrator privileges to do so.
