Suppose Windows Enterprise is used in an org, is there a way we can block the Kali Linux WSL2 (but other Linux distribution like Ubuntu is allowed) installation by any means like GPO ?

Thanks

    Hello there,

    This can be done with Powershell script.

    You can script it and add this script to the user startup process. Your script will check if WSL is activated. If so, force it back to a disabled state and force reboot.

    Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux | Select-Object State

    Users shouldn't be allowed to install it without admin rights.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
