A reminder for my friends using Windows


If you run Microsoft Windows (any version) as your daily driver I have an important reminder for you. You should not be operating normally as an administrator account. Most of the Windows vulnerabilities out there take advantage of the exploited user being able to access an admin role.

Please do yourself a favor: create a new account (e.g. MichaelAdmin) and give it administrator rights. Log into that user and degrade the rights on your current user to “standard”. Whenever you need to do something as an admin it’s very easy to just right click and select “run as administrator” at which point you will be prompted for the password of your admin account.

Stay safe out there everyone.


Harm at a fundamental level

Ow, right in the internet
