Windows 10 and Linux security flaws could let hackers hijack your work machine



Two independent teams of cybersecurity researchers have discovered separate privilege escalation vulnerabilities in the latest versions of Windows 10/11 and Linux.

According to reports, while the Windows bug impacts recent builds of Windows 10 (build 1809 and newer), and the preview of Windows 11, the Linux vulnerability was successfully exploited by researchers on machines running Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 20.10, Ubuntu 21.04, Debian 11, and Fedora 34 Workstation.
