  • Windows admins running Linux warned of threat [Ed: Nonsensical FUD of the typical kind. It's a Windows issue.]

    The warning comes from researchers at Lumen, who say at least one threat actor is trying to leverage a capability in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) to squirm into an IT environment. WSL runs a Linux environment within Windows, allowing the use of Linux command-line tools without the overhead of a virtual machine. Among those who take advantage of it are application developers, who use it as a convenient method for pulling in open-source software.
