Drive-by attacks are among the sneakiest types of browser malware, but Microsoft has a plan to keep Windows 10 users safe.

As part of the Windows 10 “November update,” both Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 include a new version of SmartScreen, the website filtering tool that Microsoft first launched with IE7. SmartScreen now protects against drive-by attacks, which attempt to silently install malware by exploiting known PC software vulnerabilities.
