Windows 10 has fixed the NTFS error
Microsoft appears to have fixed the NTFS error in Windows 10, which could lead to system crashes in Patchday (4/13/2021) with Windows 10 security updates.
Here is some information on this topic.
In the NTFS file system used by Windows 10, a vulnerability was revealed that was not revealed in January 2021. The revelation was made by @jonasLyk on January 9, 2021 on Twitter.

At the end of January 2021, there was already one informal fix for this error. But as an administrator, no one wants unofficial fixes. Then, in late February 2021, it appeared that Microsoft was preparing an update for the NTFS error.
Bleeping Computer first noticed that Microsoft included a docs-free fix in Windows 10 Insider build 21322 that prevented access to the path that triggered the error. The bug now appears to have been fixed on all supported versions of Windows 10 with its security updates April 13, 2021.
However, to date there is nothing in the official description of the updates. Probably Microsoft forgot to mention it…
