  1. Vulnerability in windows "Movies & TV" application allows for code execution and malware


    Heyo, downloaded a movie online that came in .MKV format, when opened, throws out an error code, the thing that pretty much installed a **** load of malware onto my craptop, including a bitcoin miner. Is anyone familiar with this vulnerability? Any fixes coming soon?

    :)

    Movies & TV application volume control

    The Windows 10 Movies & TV application is not able to control the volume. Is there any way in Windows 10 Pro to allow individual applications to control volume?
