NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM is a user on cronk.stenoweb.net. You can follow them or interact with them if you have an account anywhere in the fediverse. If you don't, you can sign up here.

Found in Twitter thread on the MacOS root login back door. See also: every Linux lock screen ever invented with the possible exception of xscreensaver #infosec


@deutrino in the Windows 9x case though, it was because there WAS no local authentication - there was an option for a primitive kind that'd swap profiles, but otherwise, authentication was only for network resources. There's no local security.

There's a similar GIF for NT, but in that case it's outright privilege escalation because 1. NT is multiuser/secure 2. You spawn EXPLORER.EXE as *NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM* - above Administrator. (The joys of shelling out in random stuff, at login...)
