Windows Defender, which protects Windows 10 PCs from malware, can now keep your Mac safe from inside Google Chrome. Microsoft has turned its antivirus app into a Chrome extension that promises to detect phishing links in your emails and dodgy sites that distribute malicious software.

So if your older scanner suddenly doesn’t work consider this:  In 1709 if you did an in place upgrade, you retain the SMBv1 in your networking configuration.  However because this is deemed very unsafe (and it is a risk to keep it enabled), Microsoft does a check to see if you are still using it.  “In-place upgrades and Insider flights of Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional do not automatically remove SMB1 initially. If the SMBv1 client or server is not used for 15 days in total (excluding the time during which the computer is off), they each automatically uninstall themselves.” So 15 days after SMBv1 on the client is not used, the system will send a dism command to disable SMBv1

Windows Server has come a long way since Windows NT. First, we could virtualize Windows Server, and now we can even play in the realm which what was once an exclusive Linux feature: containers! Nowadays, we can bring up a Windows Server container in Docker just as easily as a Linux container, but how? Since Microsoft is a fairly recent player in the container market, the concept of Docker and containers is probably new to a lot of Microsoft shops. The best way to learn about something is doing, so let’s do it.
For this article, we’re going to start from a Windows Server 2016 host since this is the earliest version of Windows in which you can run a true Docker host.

No, really…this isn’t clickbait. For the past few weeks, we’ve been working with the Microsoft WSL team to get Kali Linux introduced into the Microsoft App Store as an official WSL distribution and today we’re happy to announce the availability of the “Kali Linux” Windows application. For Windows 10 users, this means you can simply enable WSL, search for Kali in the Windows store, and install it with a single click. This is especially exciting news for penetration testers and security professionals who have limited toolsets due to enterprise compliance standards.
