Seattle: Microsoft Corp. said a computer-hacking group that has previously targeted government agencies attacked its Windows software and Adobe Systems Inc.’s Flash product.
The company will release a security patch for its operating system on 8 November, Windows chief Terry Myerson said Tuesday in a blog post on Microsoft’s website. Users of Microsoft’s Edge browser on the latest update to Windows 10 are protected from the flaw, the company said.
The security exploit, by a group Microsoft calls Strontium, was discovered by Google’s Threat Analysis Group and announced on Monday. Bloomberg
