Microsoft Windows is no longer secure: A new bug can enable hackers to install Rootkit in your device

Microsoft Windows is no longer secure: A new bug can enable hackers to install Rootkit in your device title banner

The Findings

 

Researchers discovered an unfixed vulnerability in Microsoft's Windows Platform Binary Table (WPBT), which impacts all Windows-based devices since Windows 8, and may be used to install a rootkit and compromise device integrity.

 

Every OS is vulnerable to attacks that install fake vendor-specific tables due to loopholes in Windows. Because of the widespread use of ACPI and WPBT, these motherboard-level vulnerabilities may render projects like Secured-core obsolete.Experts claim that attackers with physical access or remote access can misuse these tables.

 

WPBT is a feature that was first introduced in Windows 8 in 2012 and allows boot firmware to supply Windows with a platform binary that the OS may process.

 

PC makers can use UEFI to point to certified portable executables or other vendor-specific drivers that are included in the UEFI firmware ROM image and can be loaded into physical memory during Windows boot-up. To put it another way, it enables users to pre-load any OS code before running it on a device.

 

WPBT is built to keep important functions like anti-theft software running even if the operating system is changed, formatted, or reinstalled.

Misuse of the technology, according to Microsoft, might pose a security risk. It also allows the installation of rootkits on computers.

WPBT-based solutions must be as safe as feasible, with no vulnerable circumstances for Windows users. Microsoft warns that the Malware (malicious software or undesirable software) must not be deployed without the agreement of the user in WPBT solutions.

According to TheHackerNews, the WPBT method can accept a signed binary with a revoked or expired certificate to entirely circumvent the integrity check, allowing an attacker to sign a malicious binary with an already accessible expired certificate and run arbitrary code with kernel privileges when the device starts up.

 

Microsoft has advised applying a Windows Defender Application Limit (WDAC) policy to strictly control what binaries can be allowed to execute on devices in response to the results.Researchers have discovered a second set of flaws in the boot process of devices that may be exploited to achieve remote execution. 

 

The current revelation comes after a different series of findings in June 2021 involving a group of four vulnerabilities known as BIOS Disconnects.

I am so happy to share this fantastic testimony of mine. I am Maria Van Burggraaf and my life has changed round completely in 48 hours. I can see myself in the mirror and smile. I have confidence in myself and my abilities for the first time in ages. I have my husband back in my life with the help of Traditional Doctor Lukaku. He said sorry 48 hours after the spell was created. He said he realised that he never really wanted to break up he could not handle emotional baggage I was carrying around all the time. He said that he thought he was the negative influence on my life and thought it best to leave. He said it was hard that I kept talking about the past all the time. We have both forgiven each other. I have money in my pocket that is my own at last. (My compensation cheque came through I was told it was months away. I am living proof of what Traditional Doctor Lukaku can do. He restored the love and affection between me and my husband and i got him back to me. I am so happy now. With your help we were both able to see and speak the truth to each other. Anyone who have a relationship problem can contact Traditional Doctor Lukaku via email: lukakuspellcaster@gmail.com or whatsapp +2348164247998

I rarely write reviews, but I had to for this! Because I tried several apps to help with no luck. Back then, I was very confused and always felt awful about my partner’s cheating attitude. I really wanted to track and catch him red-handed. I downloaded this app hoping it would help but I wasn’t satisfied with its features as I needed to monitor my partner closely. I then spoke with a trusted colleague of mine at work and she gave me a genuine recommendation about an ethical private investigator named Christopher Kevin, I wrote to his email at WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM explaining how I wanted to have complete access to his call log, iMessage/SMS, social media activities, gallery, texts, deleted or not, his precise location day in day out. I paid for his services and in about 2-3 hours, I had complete access to his phone. I got concrete evidence. it was unbelievable to see the evidence of cheating on me. Who likes to live with a cheater, I used the evidence I got to file for a divorce. I’m thankful to Chris for helping me out of my dilemma and suspicions. His services are highly rated and affordable. If you are having trust issues and need valid evidence, how about you contact WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM? Thank you Chris for an incredible job !! I highly recommend his services, simply the best. Contact : WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM Cell Number : (+) 1807234 0428
