Exploits and their impact on security – take care of system updates!

Sometimes antivirus software and active firewalls do not protect your computer or system sufficiently and fully. One of the main attacks by hackers is to exploit system vulnerabilities with a so-called exploit. Below you can see a Windows 8.1 system with an anti-virus system installed (no name is given) and an active firewall.

Despite these standard security measures – I broke the system’s security without any problems, took over the Administrator’s rights (NT System account) and gained access to the command shell.

It took me less than 5 minutes.

Remember viruses – this is not the only threat.

System updates protect you from unauthorized access to your computer and system
