“Today’s disclosure by Google puts customers at potential risk,” a Microsoft spokesperson said. “We recommend customers use Windows 10 and the Microsoft Edge browser for the best protection.”

Use Windows 10 and our dedicated Windows 10 browser to avoid Windows 10 security problems. It wouldn't work for anyone else, but somehow, I bet that spin will work for them.

I noticed the Edge Browser reference too, but the phrase "for the best protection" seemed a little unnerving as it suggetsts that M$ have known about it for a LLOONNGG time and it is a difficult thing to patch. Their record of continuous updates are renown many of which are race conditions but this one goes back a long way so much like our BREXIT exit will be a difficult one to cure due to its age and intertwined nature.
Just my opinion of course but nevertheless bringing it into the open will make Joe Public aware of it.

However, this is an equally dangerous bug like the Linux and Android ones posted recently.
