Windows 10 zero-day gets quick fix courtesy of third-party devs

Third-party developers have issued a fix for the vulnerability discovered earlier this month that corrupts Windows 10 hard drives. Given that the flaw can be triggered simply by delivering a seemingly harmless shortcut file, affected individuals will no doubt be happy to employ any temporary fix, as long as it proves effective.

System software firm OSR has now released an open-source filter driver that prevents the vulnerability from corrupting NTFS drives. The filter driver will monitor attempts to access streams containing the $i30 attribute that triggers the flaw. If detected, these will be blocked before any damage can be caused.
