We previously reported that thanks to an unpatched vulnerability in the Windows 11 Snipping Tool program, it was able to uncrop images and recover sensitive data from them. Fortunately, that is now over, as Microsoft released a fix.

Microsoft has released a new version of the Snipping Tool for Windows 11, as well as a new version of Snip & Sketch on Windows 10, resolving this issue. Microsoft has classified the Acropalypse vulnerability, which is tracked as CVE-2023-28303, as a “low” priority issue, which some people (including us) might disagree with.

It may not allow remote code execution like some other vulnerabilities Microsoft recently fixed, but it can still cause problems by allowing malicious people to recover sensitive data from clipped screenshots, such as credit card numbers, banking information, private messages or any other thing. that could be on your screen when you take a screenshot.

Fortunately, a fix is ​​now being implemented. Just head over to the Microsoft Store and go to Library > Get Updates to download the update. Microsoft was spotted testing this fix on the newly released Windows Insider Canary branch, and is now rolling it out to everyone.

Be sure to download this solution now so you can continue cropping and saving images however you like.
