MS10-015 BSOD Issues - Are they Malware related?
During the most recent Microsoft security updates, some users have reported Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) issues after rebooting their systems. When a BSOD occurs, Windows cannot start and must be repaired by a technician. Some analysts have pointed to MS010-015 as a possible cause. There are also several Windows rootkits that can destroy the integrity of the Windows environment and create BSOD issues as well.
Many users don't shutdown or reboot often. Circumstantially when one reboots on Patch Tuesday, BSOD/KSOD issues could surface from malware, device driver issues, low-level API service conflicts (AV updates) or possibly a sensitive MS patch as well. Microsoft is continuing their analysis on these issues and hopefully we will know more in the coming days.
