    “Forced authentication issues (including NTLM relaying and Kerberos relaying) are a silent elephant in the room in Windows networks, where an attacker inside the network can force a chosen computer in the same network to perform authentication over the network such that the attacker can intercept its request. In the process, the attacker obtains some user’s or computer account’s credentials and can then use these to perform actions with the ‘borrowed’ identity.”

    “Alas, Microsoft’s position seems to be not to fix forced authentication issues unless an attack can be mounted anonymously; their fix for PetitPotam confirms that – they only addressed the anonymous attack vector. In other words:
