關於 Samba 與 Windows 網芳的安全性問題,拖了三個禮拜的「Badlock Bug」的細節總算公佈了 (網頁還不支援 HTTPS)。 果然是為了打名氣而事前公佈的... 都不是無條件的 RCE (Remote Code Execution),而是透過 MITM 後的 RCE。

溫水煮青蛙:Windows 10 與 Secure Boot

Microsoft 的 Windows 10 更進一步限制了 Secure Boot 的選擇:「Linux’s worst-case scenario: Windows 10 makes Secure Boot mandatory, locks out other operating systems」。 之前是關閉,現在則是必須要 optional (包裝用語啦,意思是預設值打開,使用者可以進 UEFI console 關閉): OEMs are still required to ship Secure Boot, but the previously mandatory disable … Continue reading
