Windows 10 to force you to use Edge, even if it isn't default browser


And from a recent El Reg article...

'The fixed bugs include nine remote code execution (RCE) flaws in the Chakra scripting engine in Edge. Microsoft says the scripting bugs (such as CVE-2018-0874) would allow an infected webpage to run code with the logged-in user's clearance level.

The Edge scripting engine was also the subject of four memory corruption RCE flaws, as well as an information disclosure bug, CVE-2018-0839, that allows an attack page to view objects in memory.'

No doubt more to come.

Not saying there aren't flaws in other browsers, but being forced to use one that is both shit and insecure seems like it might annoy a few folk. Hopefully some of those folk are in governments that like to squash anti-competitive behaviour.
