Windows 11 has been updated and is now better at guarding against assaults.

Following the latest upgrade, Microsoft’s popular operating system, Windows 11, is now better at guarding against brute force attacks.

In the latest version, the SMB authentication rate limitation is now activated by default.

Microsoft’s Principal Program Manager stated during an explanation of the latest version, “The SMB server service now defaults to a 2-second delay between failed inbound NTLM authentication attempts. This means that if an attacker previously used a client to send 300 brute force attempts per second for 5 minutes (90,000 passwords), the same number of attempts would now take at least 50 hours “.

Microsoft has been hard at work on the upcoming update for several months. The purpose of the current update is to make the system an unappealing target for the attacker.
