Hi folks,
I’ve just read an article written in Farsi (the link is unfortunately broken) about an interesting bug in Microsoft’s Notepad. Here’s the story:

  1. Open Notepad.
  2. Type AAAA BBB CCC DDDDD (or any other 4-3-3-5 alphanumeric combination).
  3. Save the document and close the notepad.
  4. Open the saved file.

Amazingly, the resulting text has been turned into unicode.

    didn’t work for me.

    vista x64 sp2.
    I think they have fixed the buffer overflow.
    (all win errors all buffer overflows, I think)

The best thing about the "Windows 10 First Anniversary" update is the "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows". Impressive! Thank you @Canonical
