The SMB authentication rate limiter is now enabled by default in the new update.
Microsoft’s popular Windows 11 operating system is now better at defending against brute force attacks after the latest version.
The SMB authentication rate selector is now enabled by default in the new update.
Explaining the new version, Microsoft’s Senior Program Manager said: “The SMB server service now defaults to 2 seconds between each incoming NTLM authentication failure.
This means that if an attacker sent previously 300 brute force attempts per second from a client for 5 minutes (90,000 words) passage), the same number of attempts will now take at least 50 hours.”
Microsoft has been working on the new version for the past few months. With the latest Version, the goal is to make the system an unattractive target for an attacker.
