      Win11 officially being “vulnerable” is not surprising to me

      Win 11 will be the equivalent of Vista, or at the very least, Win ME. What is the incentive for anyone to opt-in to this “new” OS?

      Windows 11 is just a name for new version of Windows 10

      it will always be ike all Windows versions

      How is Microsoft issuing patches to GRUB? Microsoft has no rights to GRUB or its code.

        All operating systems using GRUB2 with Secure Boot must release new installers and bootloaders.

        Microsoft will be releasing a set of signed dbx updates, which can be applied to systems to block shims that can be used to load the vulnerable versions of GRUB2.

        THERE’S A HOLE IN THE BOOT

        Windows 10 Pro version 21H2 build 19044.1387 + Microsoft 365 (group ASAP)

      I sill remember that when Win 10 first came out, and for quite a while after that, had 10 or twenty, or so patches every Patch Tuesday …

      By the way, Susan: nice comprehensive, catholic even (small “c” “catholic”, comes from the Greek and means: universal, or all encompassing, or with everything in it.) One little thing: the still latest version of macOS is not called “Big Sir: it is “Big Sur.” Or, as some nasty-minded individuals with no reason at all to complain may like to write it, just the two initials, in all caps, without a space in between.

      Ex Windows user (Win. 98, XP, 7) since mid-2020. Now: running macOS Big Sur 11.6 & sometimes, Linux (Mint)

      Windows 11 is the less secure OS at the moment from reports on dark. There are over 150 exploits published on the dark.
