Default win 10 update issues

Microsoft said a highly suspicious Windows update that was delivered to customers around the world was the result of a test that wasn't correctly implemented.

"We incorrectly published a test update and are in the process of removing it," a Microsoft spokesperson wrote in an e-mail to Ars. The message included no other information.

The explanation came more than 12 hours after people around the world began receiving the software bulletin through the official Windows Update, raising widespread speculation that Microsoft's automatic patching mechanism was broken or, worse, had been compromised to attack end users.

Assuming the worst, that Windows Update has been compromised, it wouldn't be the first time. The Flame malware reportedly developed by the US and Israel to spy on Iran hijacked Windows update so it could spread from one PC to another inside infected local networks. Earlier this year, researchers demonstrated an attack on the Windows Update servers used by large organizations to patch large fleets of computers they operate.
