If you're a Windows 10 user who relies on Windows BitLocker Hard Drive Encryption software for the security of your PC, your security has a HUGE vulnerability since anyone with physical access to it can still circumvent all your security and access your files within seconds.
If your computer's security relies on Windows BitLocker Hard Drive Encryption software, then Beware! Because anyone with physical access to your PC can still access your files within few seconds.
The command-line interface (CLI) then grants the attacker full access to the computer's hard drive, even when the victim has enabled BitLocker disk encryption feature.
Laiho explains that during the installation of a new build (Windows 10 upgrade), the operating system disables BitLocker while the Windows PE installs a new image of the main Windows 10 OS.
