Windows 11 Security Vulnerability Exposes Cropped-Out Screenshot Data, Researchers Find
A screenshot security hole affects more than just Android smartphones. Chris Blume, a developer, has found that the Snipping Tool in Windows 11 is vulnerable to a related exploit. The utility leaves some of the cropped-out image intact, making it possible to retrieve some of the image’s original content and perhaps extract sensitive information. A slightly modified version of the script used to show the Android vulnerability may be used to extract the allegedly secret information, as researcher David Buchanan confirmed to BleepingComputer.
