    So I have a security question in Linux

    by marsisanortherplan ·

    Tags: 

    So I have been using Kali recently and I forgot my username I quickly searched and found a solution that we can make a small change in the GRUB boot loader and we can get ROOT access . My question is how is linux better for security if it can be so easily exploitable ? I mean for personal or professional. I’m new to Linux and this made me think so I asked.

      I think we need to discuss security as a whole.

      Today’s and yesterday’s PC is what we call a Personal Computer and as such will do as we command it [b]IF[/b] we have physical access to it.

      That is NOT as security flaw as the PC was designed to do this.

      Folk try to add security later often bring up what you mentioned and then we have to discuss PC security and how physical access pretty much gives us full access to make the PC do as we wish.

      -> As such, I don’t consider this to be an exploit.
