A new flaw was discovered in Windows 10 that successfully bypasses ALL of the anti-virus, anti-malware, and anti-ransomware software! They are calling it ‘bashware’ after the Linux operating system that was integrated into Windows.
Good news is that it can’t completely take over your computer without administrative permission. Windows is currently working with security software to come up with updates and patches for this new threat.
A few ways to protect yourself:
1: Don’t open emails from unknown senders.
2: Downloads should only come from trusted sources.
3: Check and make sure that your security software is up-to-date.
