    Given the recent Google discovery of a flaw in Windows Defender, and the Google discovery of a flaw in Internet Explorer and Edge, it would appear that Google and Microsoft aren’t exactly friendly when it comes to working together. This time, however, a new flaw has been discovered which could perhaps have both tech giants to blame, as hackers can exploit the flaw so they could use Chrome in Windows 10 to steal passwords (via ZDNet)

    While Google has said it is working on a fix for this flaw, DefenseCode security researcher Bosko Stankovic recently detailed how the flaw could trick the latest version of Chrome in Windows 10 into downloading a SCF file (show desktop icon shortcut) that can trick Windows (and help hackers) into capturing a user’s LAN Manager (NTLMv2) password hash.
