Microsoft acknowledged a new known issue leading to Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) critical system process crashes and forced reboots on some Windows 10 devices.

When LSASS fails, the user will immediately lose access to any accounts available on the machine, an error will be displayed, and the machine is forced to restart.
