Summary
Microsoft’s new AI-enabled Recall feature, which captures and stores periodic screenshots of a user's computer desktop, has sparked significant cybersecurity concerns. For instance, security researchers revealed that hackers could access this historical data without needing administrator privileges, effectively bypassing the tool’s sole protection mechanism. The vulnerability highlighted by Google Project Zero's James Forshaw demonstrates that control lists can be easily manipulated, leading to unrestrained access to users' data. The discovery has led to Microsoft announcing changes, including disabling Recall by default and promising additional security measures following intense backlash from the cybersecurity community.
