Risks of Linux Support in Windows 10

Threatpost had a thought provoking article on WINDOWS 10 ATTACK SURFACE GROWS WITH LINUX SUPPORT IN ANNIVERSARY UPDATE. Since Windows 10 will now have Linux support, it could make for some interesting vulnerabilities that show up. If you're a Windows Administrator, you could have to start dealing with and paying attention to Linux patches and vulnerabilities also because if this feature is enabled you may have some things that start impacting you. It's also an interesting thought that some endpoint protection agents may be purposely only looking for Windows IoCs on windows machines and Linux IoCs on linux machines, but now the endpoint agents will have to take into account the fact that both Linux and Windows binaries could be running in the windows environment. Definitely something to keep an eye on and don't forget about.
