Active Directory Access Control List – Attacks and Defense
Recently there has been a lot of attention regarding the use of Discretionary Access Control List (DACL) for privilege escalation in a Domain environment. Although DACL permissions are complex, there are examples of potential attack scenarios we want to share. The following blog tries to shed some light on the subject, present the possible escalation paths and suggest relevant mitigations.

New collaboration features in Microsoft Teams mobile apps
Now you can join private and channel meetings right from Microsoft Teams mobile apps on iOS and Android with one-touch, and participate with audio and HD video. You can also make a direct 1:1 audio or video call from the Teams mobile apps. While in a meeting, you can easily view shared content, start a chat with the meeting participants, and bring in a new participant. It's easy to switch between audio devices, and intuitive meeting controls appear only when you need them with a light tap on your screen, so you can stay focused on the content.
