Microsoft is bringing its Threat and Vulnerability Management (TVM) capability to Linux, allowing admins to review recently discovered vulnerabilities within applications and potential misconfigurations across Linux and remediate any affected managed and unmanaged devices. The popular product is in public preview for Linux as of yesterday.

Microsoft is enabling IT pros to keep tabs on the security of their Linux devices using the company’s Defender for Endpoint product (formerly known as Microsoft Defender Advanced Thread Protection). The Threat and Vulnerability Management (TVM) capabilities already available for Windows, and Windows Server are now also in public preview for macOS and Linux as of today, May 11. And Microsoft plans to bring TVM to Android and iOS devices later this summer, officials said today.

The entire Linux Leadership Community ‘screamed-bloody-hell’ when a few students told them that they thought the Linux Kernel development system lacked proper security – the Linux Leadership Community ended up banning the entire University of Minnesota for such facts to have been pointed out to them.

  • Perhaps the elite’ Linux Leadership Community could provide more security for their OSes if they focused less on forcing the use of annoying “Authenticate” popups and focused more on actual security.

LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
