Permanently delete a Key Vault in Azure using PowerShell

Par : Baki Onur Okutucu

In this post, we will be looking at purging options to permanently delete a Key Vault and fully erase all the secrets, keys, and certificates in it. Sometimes destroying data properly is as important as keeping it secure. We all know that there are some cases in which the data is actually not deleted completely, even if we think it is. Key Vaults in Azure are a good example of this.

Exploiting the CVE-2021-42278 (sAMAccountName spoofing) and CVE-2021-42287 (deceiving the KDC) Active Directory vulnerabilities

Par : Krishnamoorthi Gopal

After Microsoft released security patches for two Active Directory vulnerabilities with the Tuesday, November 9, 2021 patch, Microsoft urged customers on December 20 to apply the patches immediately to prevent attackers from taking over Windows domains. In addition to patching, organizations can increase their defenses against attacks by executing a couple of actions that will help prevent the unauthorized creation of accounts. Unauthorized accounts could lead to the elevation of privileges to those of a Domain Admin once a regular user account has been compromised. An event like this can simply be regarded as an escalated attack.

Install Windows 11 in a VM on VMware Workstation or ESXi

Par : Brandon Lee

With the release of Windows 11, many are starting to test the OS on virtual machines. VMware Workstation and VMware vSphere are popular options for this. Since Microsoft has raised the hardware requirements for Windows 11, these must also be met in a virtual environment. The most significant hurdle is the need for a virtual Trusted Platform Module (TPM). This is why you can't officially run the OS on VirtualBox.
