    You can hold Shift and reboot or shutdown like normal. A neat trick I found accidentally on 1809/1903. But, IDK if MSFT disallowed that tweak or workaround.

    I find the options here... under Computer Configuration. If you look under User Configuration all options are limited as they only include per-user settings. Those under Computer Configuration are global and affect all users.

    Great, another one...

    Microsoft, NSA confirm killer Windows 10 bug, but a patch is available
    Use Windows Update and patch your PC now.

    @jclausius beat me to it. :)

    I just got the alert via email from Norton a few minutes ago, thought it was something new:

    Malware Alert- National Security Agency & Microsoft recommend updating Windows 10
    Serious vulnerability could allow malicious files to appear legitimate
    ...the link appears unique to me, so I won't post it, so I'll copy/paste it here...
    Serious vulnerability could allow malicious files to appear legitimate

    What is Happening? On January 14, 2020, the U.S. National Security Agency released a Cybersecurity Advisory urging users of Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system to patch a potentially serious vulnerability. While the advisory is geared towards government and businesses, patching operating system vulnerabilities is something all users of Windows 10 should do.

    Microsoft released details about the vulnerability, which could allow an attacker to use a spoofed code-signing certificate – a sort of digital signature used to validate legitimate apps – to sign malicious software. This would allow the malware to appear to be from a trusted source and could make detection significantly more difficult.

    This vulnerability affects Windows 10, and while it has not yet been exploited in the wild, it may be only a matter of time before someone looks to take advantage of unpatched systems.

    We take the cybersecurity of our customers very seriously and encourage you to follow security best practices by updating any Windows 10 systems you have using the Windows Update feature on your computer.

    What Should You Do?
    1. If you have Windows 10, you most likely have Automatic Updates enabled by default. If so, your system will attempt to install the updates when they are downloaded, likely over the next several days. Allow the update process to complete and restart your system if needed.
    2. If you want to run your Windows Update manually to get the patch more quickly, follow these instructions from Microsoft and click the “Check for Windows updates” button.
    3. Alternatively, when you are at your Windows 10 computer, click the Start button, select Settings, then Update & Security, then Windows Update, and click Check for updates to run Windows Update manually.
    4. If you have multiple PCs running Windows 10, ensure they are all up-to-date with the latest security patches.
    5. DO NOT attempt to download a patch for this vulnerability from anywhere other than the Windows Update tool. Windows system updates should only be downloaded directly from Microsoft.
    6. If you would like to read more about the unprecedented nature of the partnership between the NSA and Microsoft relating to this patch, click here (Washington Post) or here (Business Insider).

    Google Chrome Adds Protection for NSA's Windows CryptoAPI Flaw bleepingcomputer.com | Today

    Google just released Chrome 79.0.3945.130, which will now detect certificates that attempt to exploit the NSA discovered CVE-2020-0601 CryptoAPI Windows vulnerability.

    The new version of Chrome blocks spoofed certificates
    Today, Google released Chrome 79.0.3945.130, which adds new code by Google's Ryan Sleevi to further check the integrity of a web site's certificate before allowing a visitor to access the site.

    It would not be surprising to find other browser and security software start integration detection for CVE-2020-0601 into their products so that even if a company can't immediately install the security patches, they will have a modicum of protection against the vulnerability.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    There’s a working Proof of Concept for the “ChainOfFools” CVE-2020-0601 Crypto API bug — but it isn’t as bad as you think askwoody.com | Today

    That's weird, Windows 10 doesn't check for updates for Microsoft Edge Beta, inside the About it shows an update is available:

    Microsoft Edge
    To finish updating, restart Microsoft Edge.Version 79.0.309.65 (Official build) beta (64-bit)

    After Updating:

    We’ve updated you to the latest build.
    This is Microsoft Edge Beta Build 80.0.361.33
    https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/welcome/update?channel=beta&version=80.0.361.33

    I wonder if that includes the fix from Chrome?

    It looks like Chrome has independent updates too:

    Updating Google Chrome (65%)
    Version 79.0.3945.117 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    After Update:
    Google Chrome is up to date
    Version 79.0.3945.130 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    @Mr. Fox @Papusan Win 10 offline update fails to apply if you boot into safe mode OR simply plug a USB receiver for mouse/keyboard to block the update on v1809. Haha... After removing the receiver, the offline update installed w/o any issue.

    That's pretty strange. Wonder what the USB receiver has to do with that?
