Hacking a Linux system is so easy, a kid could do it

Bypass Linux Passwords by Pressing Backspace 28 Times. 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.If you still use one of these Linux distributions, you may want to make sure that you aren’t keeping sensitive information saved anywhere on your computer – it may be at risk of being hacked by even the most novice cyber criminals. Assuming the system is in fact susceptible to the bug, anyone with the right know-how could access the system’s “Grub rescue shell“, which, with just a few keystrokes, can give them unhindered access to any and all data found on the PC.

Bypass Linux Passwords by Pressing Backspace 28 Times. 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.Researchers at the Polytechnic University of Valencia have figured out that many versions of Linux have a security flaw that allows users to bypass system security by pressing Backspace 28 times. The only method that could be manipulated by the user with common inputs was the Backspace method, which causes the system to revert to its “Grub rescue shell”. This protection is particularly important within organizations, where it is also common to disable CD-ROM, USB and network boot ...
