Attackers can hide the line of code inside a ZIP file, folder, or even a Windows shortcut file. If the bug is exploited correctly, it can corrupt a drive without someone even opening the malicious file. BleepingComputer found that once a shortcut file was downloaded to a Windows 10 PC and is viewed within a folder, Windows Explorer will attempt to display the files' icon. As a result, the attack will take place and an NTFS hard drive will be corrupted.

Windows 10 is currently facing yet another bug that can potentially corrupt an NTFS formatted drive. The bug can be triggered by simply accessing a particular path or opening a specially made file. Reports suggest that Microsoft was supposed to roll out a fix last month. However, it has only managed to release the same for users on the Windows 10 Insider Build.
