Windows' authentication 'flaw' exposed in detail


Re: Never say never

"Hacking / defacement stats of internet facing web servers indicate that Linux is the easiest - about 4 times more likely to be successfully attacked than a Windows Server box (that's allowing for relative market share)."

Being an AC and failing to post citations/evidence puts that in unsupportable tosh from the Windows community bucket, alongside NTLM, the decision to allow NTLM to survive beyond 1996 and by association pretty much every product that MS has released that makes use of it...

The good news is that Satya seems pretty happy to disrupt stuff so there's a better chance of NTLM being consigned to oblivion where it deserves to be. I'm hoping for that outcome. :)
