"Expect us to refine this experience", Microsoft added. However, the light mode doesn't change all the colors across the desktop interface, Microsoft said in a blog post about the preview release.

The cumulative update pushes the build number up to 18277.1006 and should be available via Windows Update for Fast ring Insiders now.

The news comes just a few weeks after Kaspersky Lab detected a similar zero-day threat in Microsoft's system, having alerted the computing giant to a further Windows vulnerability that had been utilised by state-backed cyber-espionage group known as FruityArmor.

Available for Insiders testing the next major Windows 10 feature update, now named "19H1", the cumulative release puts an update block in place for a "small number of PCs" using Nuvoton TPM chips. This is because we want everything to be exactly as you left it before you did the update. For all other Windows OS users, if you'd rather be alerted to new updates when they're available so you can choose when to install them, there's a setting for that in Windows Update. Today, Microsoft is bringing the Windows 10 October 2018 Update back to this stage, so this is how you'll get it. While this doesn't make it any easier for when your specific device blue screens or loses data because of an update bug, it does highlight how the company has to use creative testing validation before they can ship a new build of Windows. But be warned; the company's Windows preview releases can be buggy.

They have also taken the data gathered from millions of devices on the Windows 10 October update to analyze what went wrong.

The Windows 10 version 1809 users who had experienced data losses last month were said to have been seekers that checked for updates. If you discover you are still having issues, you can contact Microsoft directly to get some help, or provide feedback on Microsoft's updated feedback hub.

Windows 10 version 1809 also can be actively downloaded.
