During the pandemic, many users decided to buy a new PC or laptop. Well, now a major bug has been detected that causes file corruption in windows 11, Problem pops up in teams with Processors Intel Ice Lake, Tiger Lake and Rocket Lakeas well as AMD Ryzen 5000 Series.
according to him KB5017259 by Microsoft. problem as described, Windows 11 user may experience data corruption. It looks like the problem is with the new hardware data encryption accelerator. It’s not really an Intel and AMD issue, it’s an operating system issue.
Windows 11 will damage user data
it seems that The problem would be in the Vector Advanced Encryption Standard (VAES), This is the most current AES encryption standard and these extensions will be affected by this issue:
- AES XEX in Modified Codebook Mode based on XOR Encryption (XEX) with Ciphertext Theft Mode (AES-XTS)
- AES con Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) (AES-GCM)
Intel Ice Lake (Xeon processors), Tiger Lake (11th generation for laptops) and Rocket Lake (11th generation for desktops) processors and the AMD Ryzen 5000 series will be very modern. will be in trouble New code path for symcrypt library, Because of this, written data can contain errors, so it can be damaged, corrupted or lost.
Microsoft has not given much information about this. They only indicate that, to avoid data corruption, install latest updates, It is mainly requested to install the preview version on 24th May and the security update on 14th June.
There is no information given about what to do if we have faced data corruption due to this problem. Only from Microsoft they recognize the error and nothing else.
The positive is that we shouldn’t have problems as long as we don’t use Encryption applications such as BitLocker or TLSamong others.
system slowdown patch
If there was something missing in this story, Microsoft admits it could be generate “potentially slow performance”, It seems that the first test done by some users indicates that the encryption time has doubled, which is quite annoying. This mainly affects hard disk performance, which is reduced due to adjustments in library paths.
For those who see significant performance impact, there are workarounds that reduce the impact somewhat. The June 23 and July 12 updates slightly reduce the performance loss, However, it is possible that future updates will fix most of the performance loss, as this seems to be a hastily released patch.
For all those who have Windows 11 and any of the mentioned processors, all that is left is to upgrade or move to Windows 10. In theory, you shouldn’t have noticed the problem if you don’t use encryption applications like the ones mentioned. In any case, this is quite a significant failure on the part of Microsoft, which, as we can see, has given the least possible information about it.
