by James Forshaw,

Summary : Windows 10 is shaping up to be one of the most secure consumer operating systems yet, it includes many new security features baked in such as Control Flow Guard and Credentials Isolation. But new features have a habit of coming with additional bugs which only serve to reduce the security of the system at the same time.
This presentation will describe a few of the new security features introduced into Windows 10 as well as some of the vulnerabilities I’ve discovered which demonstrate that secure engineering is still very difficult in practice.
