Microsoft is fixing win10 shortcut short string damage to any NTFS hard disk bug

A long-standing bug in Windows 10 allows a short string character to destroy your NTFS file system, forcing windows to fix it the next time it starts.

This short string can be passed to the operating system in a variety of ways, such as compressing a part of the drive, windows 10 shortcuts, specially made HTML documents, and even as part of the file icon path.


Once windows attempts to access the path, it will prompt "the file or directory is corrupt and cannot be read." Then prompt the user to restart the computer and run CHKDSK to repair the damage.

Microsoft has finally released a fix as part of windows 10 insider build 21322.
Now, when you try to access the path, windows 10 will report "invalid directory name" and will no longer mark the NTFS volume as corrupt.
It is not clear when this fix will be introduced to Current Windows 10 official users, who are still vulnerable to this denial of service attack.
