Last Monday, the Electron team revealed that it had patched a bug that affects the Electron framework, a a popular software-building framework used by a number of desktop apps such as Skype, Signal, Slack, Basecamp, WordPress.com, Twitch, Ghost, and others.

The remote code execution vulnerability in Electron only affects Windows apps. The team also included a workaround for developers whose apps cannot be updated to the new Electron framework code, but warned that attackers may soon find a way to exploit it.

Microsoft also announced that it has updated Windows Defender so that it can detect any attempts of attackers to exploit the flaw.
