Get More Out of Reading
Want to get more out of that next article you read that describes how to solve a problem? My advisor in graduate school gave me a great tip on how to do it. Start reading the article normally, but stop right before the author describes how they solved the problem. You should have an idea about the problem and some of the important issues involved. Set the paper aside and spend about 10 minutes creating your own solution to the problem.
Executive Summary On June 8, 2021, Microsoft released an advisory and patch for a critical vulnerability in the Windows Print Spooler. It was originally classified as a privilege escalation vulnerability. On June 27, 2021, researchers from QiAnXin claimed systems were still vulnerable after the patch and that the exploit could be used to gain remote code execution. A few days later researchers from Sangor released a proof-of-concept exploit on GitHub that validated the claim.
