Major Windows 10 security flaw can be triggered by plugging in a Razer device

It appears a major security flaw in Windows 10 has been discovered, and triggering it can be as simple as plugging in a Razer device.

As MSPoweruser reports, a ‘white hat’ hacker, jonhat, has discovered that when you plug in a Razer mouse into a new system, Windows Update will download and run the RazerInstaller program, which installs the Razer drivers, as SYSTEM. Basically, this grants the user the highest level of permission in Windows 10, allowing someone to access and change very important files and settings in the operating system.
