> Currently it exploits Windows systems
You guys haven't switched to Ubuntu yet? After the Windows 10 catastrophe?
Windows 10 Catastrophe? Isn't it supposed to be fairly good? I'm on a mac though
Long live Kali Linux!!!
Nooooooo. It's not even close to fairly good mate. It is a major league catastrophe. Good for you, Macs are still cousins with Linux.
PS. Mods or admins can check the user agent I access BHW with and see it's been Linux for years.
Guys i am using Windows 2000,I need to worry about this exploit ?
I was using ubuntu since version 6.06 to 12.04. Switched to mac when they switched from gnome to Unity and when i got my first iPhone. Never knew this about Windows, quit that piece of shit over 10 years ago.
Maybe you are just spoofing your user agent
Could've been, if I had reason to hide anything from BHW admins.
But I don't - it's legit.
Recently I changed from Fedora to Ubuntu which is updated more often.
When I need Windows I run it in a window, under Linux
I'm fairly certain Windows 10 is just Windows 2000 repackaged.
@Paranoid Android @BassTrackerBoats I was joking,sorry for that.I am using XP in desktop and Window 7 on my laptop.
The nice thing about Windows 10 is that it updates every 28 minutes!
You can really see MSFT giving great support there.
Guys it's a de-anonymization exploit, nothing to worry about for every day usage.
Idk about anyone else, but that makes me feel both secure and safe.
Its 5am, i just felt like being a pain haha!
Are you insane? It breaks into kernel32.dll and executes code locally. Doesn't matter what the discovered variant does.
Ouch. If I remember correctly back from my Windows days, kernel32.dll runs in "ring 0" and is allowed to do anything on a PC. I bet every intelligence agency in the world is hustling to make a spything based on this.
Did i mention Linux yet ?
Separate names with a comma.
