Windows 11 has become more difficult to hack with passwords

The security against break-in by "gross force" was also present in earlier Windows versions, but it is now defaulted. After ten failed passwords within ten minutes, the system is fully blocked. System administrators can change this option if they wish by editing the register.

Brutforce attacks are one of the most popular ways to get into the system, including using remote desktop protocol, told by David Weston, Vice-President of Microsoft for security of OS and businesses, who says that this method is very often used in attacks with encryption software.

The new feature is now available only in Windows 1122H2 for Windows Insiders. A publicly available release is expected in September–October.
