Symptoms

Issue 1
Consider the following scenario:
  • You encrypt the Favorites folder (%userprofile%/Favorites) with an Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) certificate by using the Encrypting Files System (EFS) feature on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You add a webpage that has a shortcut icon (favicon.ico) to the Favorites folder.
  • You restart the computer.
In this scenario, some characters in the webpage file of the webpage that you added are displayed incorrectly. Additionally, you cannot access the webpage through the file in the Favorites folder.
Issue 2
Consider the following scenario:
  • You encrypt two files with ECC certificates by using the EFS feature on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You copy one of the files, and then you paste the file that you copied to overwrite the other file.
  • You restart the computer.
In this scenario, the file that you overwrote is corrupted.

Notes
  • ECC is a public key encryption technique that you can use to create faster, smaller, and more efficient cryptographic keys.
  • These issues occur only when you use the EFS feature to encrypt files of folders with ECC certificates.
  • These issues do not occur when you use the EFS feature to encrypt files or folders with RSA certificates.

Cause

The EFS encryption feature encrypts file data in chunks of 512 bytes, and each chunk has a 16-byte initialization vector (IV). The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cipher algorithm in the Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode is used for encryption. These issues occur because the first 16 bytes of every 512-byte chunk are corrupted during encryption.

File information

The global version of this hotfix installs files that have the attributes that are listed in the following tables. The dates and the times for these files are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The dates and the times for these files on your local computer are displayed in your local time together with your current daylight saving time (DST) bias. Additionally, the dates and the times may change when you perform certain operations on the files.
Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes
Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.1.760 0.21xxxWindows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2RTMLDR
    6.1.760 1.17xxxWindows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2SP1GDR
  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are critical to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
