Carter Pewterschmidt: BullBearMS: New Windows exploit lets you instantly become admin.

"It basically allows any attacker on the local network (such as a malicious insider or someone who simply plugged in a device to an on-premise network port) to completely compromise the Windows domain. The attack is completely unauthenticated: the attacker does not need any user credentials."


Typical Microsoft.  You can completely own the entire enterprise network from a remote computer.

Typical Microsoft?

Pro tip: You can log into macOS High Sierra as root with no password
A trivial-to-exploit flaw in macOS High Sierra, aka macOS 10.13, allows users to gain admin rights, or log in as root, without a password.
The security bug can be triggered via the authentication dialog box in Apple's operating system, which prompts you for an administrator's username and password when you need to do stuff like configure privacy and network settings.
If you type in "root" as the username, leave the password box blank, hit "enter" and then click on unlock a few times, the prompt disappears and, congrats, you now have admin rights. You can do this from the user login screen, too.
The vulnerability effectively allows someone with physical access to the machine to log in, cause extra mischief, install malware, and so on. You should not leave your vulnerable Mac unattended, nor allow remote desktop access, until you can fix the problem.

This MS vulnerability needs quite skilled knowledge to exploit. The Apple vulnerability only needed anyone to type Root as the login and press enter.

We know you're dumb, but if you don't know the difference between completely owning the entire Windows Domain across the network and needing to have physical possession to take over a single machine, you're dumber than I thought.

Pop quiz:  Which three companies founded ARM?

Spoiler alert:  One of them is Apple.

According the the mobile chip guy at Anandtech, Apple's perpetual contract with ARM is so comprehensive that it still allows them to control the pace at which chip features are released today.

Apple didn't bid for ARM because they already have all the legal rights to ARM's tech they need.

Qualcomm, on the other hand, is about to get screwed.
