Microsoft is planning regular updates for the Edge browser, with Canary, Dev, and Beta updates on a daily, weekly, and multi-week basis. "Even more so than others", Dormann wrote.

She added that the agency had chose to make its involvement in the discovery public at Microsoft's request. That means no more software updates, security fixes or patches, or technical support.

The accents of China, Japan, the UK, France, Germany, and Mexico are also supported. For those that have been testing the browser, not much is changing but for those who have been holding off, or are in the corporate world, there are a few things you need to know.

Microsoft's scheduled security update for Windows includes a fix to a potentially unsafe bug that would allow an attacker to spoof a certificate, making it look like it came from a trusted source. Windows Server workloads can be deployed in Azure in various ways such as Virtual Machines on Azure, Azure VMware Solutions and Azure Dedicated Host.

Microsoft patched a severe flaw in Windows 10 after the National Security Agency released a warning urging the company to fix the potentially damaging vulnerability. One month later, Microsoft blamed the NSA for the global spread of malicious software called WannaCrypt.
