Grub 1.98 through 2.02 has vulnerability allowing user to bypass password

Recommended Posts

The vulnerability only comes into play when someone has physical access to the computer, but pressing the backspace key 28 times causes a buffer underflow which allows someone to bypass the Grub bootloader password if enabled.
