We reported on a newly discovered Android security vulnerability yesterday, hackers can gain access by simply sending a MMS message to the target’s device and it doesn’t even matter if that message is opened or not, Android’s default media handling system would automatically process the message and activate the code.

Microsoft Windows 10 will have a number of improvements when it launches tomorrow, including a revamped Start menu, a speedy Microsoft Edge web browser, a built-in Cortana digital assistant and the ability to stream games from an Xbox One console to another device.

We’re just 2 days away from Windows 10’s official launch. Ahead of the release of its new operating system, Microsoft has been releasing a lot of security updates for Windows 10 Build 10240 lately. Unsurprisingly enough, there’s a new update today as well – the latest update is KB3074683 and there doesn’t seem to be anything new other than under the hoods improvements. It’s worth noting that the latest update replaces KB3074681 which caused File Explorer to crash for some users — meaning that the latest update fixes the crashing issues for File Explorer.
