Insane bug makes it incredibly easy to hack many Linux systems

Even a child could hack into a Linux computer: report. Pressing the backspace key 28 times can bypass the Grub2 bootloader’s password protection and allow a hacker to install malware on a locked-down Linux system. The computer security researchers discovered the vulnerability that allows unauthorized users to bypass the authentication of locked-down Linux boxes in the bootloader GRUB2 — which is used by, according to the researchers, “most Linux system” to load the operating system. The team stumbled across this strange backdoor measure while testing the security of the Grub2 bootloader, which is commonly found in a large majority of Linux based operating systems. This protection is ...
