Secunia’s Vulnerability Review 2014 provides an interesting analysis of the number of vulnerabilities in the Top 50 portfolio products. The Secunia Vulnerability Review provides a vision on global vulnerability trends, evaluating carefully the 50 most popular programs on private PCs. These programs are practically everywhere, in many cases, they are key application for ordinary IT operations, let’s imagine to internet browsers or applications like PDF reader. Data proposed by Secunia’s Vulnerability Review 2014 revealed that third-party programs are responsible for 76% of the flaws identified in the 50 most popular programs in 2013. Despite large diffusion of Microsoft products that account for 66% of the Top 50 programs, only 24% of the vulnerabilities in the Top 50 programs in 2013 were related to applications designed by company of Redmond. [b]Key findings from the study are:[/b] [list] [*]76% of vulnerabilities in the 50 most popular programs on private PCs in 2013 af
A new claim from noted Microsoft reporter Paul Thurrott states, via unnamed sources, that Windows 8.1 Update 1 will be made available to download April 8th for the general public. However, MSDN subscribers will still get access to the final build ahead of that date, although not as early as usual. "Windows 8.1 Update 1 will hit MSDN on April 2, Windows Update on April 8" — Paul Thurrott (@thurrott) February 27, 2014 According to a message on his Twitter account, Thurrott says that MSDN users will be able to access Update 1 on April 2nd, less than a week before the final build will be launched. Usually, MSDN subscribers can get new Windows builds several weeks ahead of their general availability date. Previous rumors put an early April date for the release of Update 1, but this is the first indication about when MSDN users could get their hands on it. Leaked builds of Update 1 indicate it will bring a number of small but significant changes to Windows 8.1, mostly for its use by desktop
REVIEWS Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete review: Protection needs improvement 4 weeks ago by Sarah Jacobsson Purewal, PCWorld Webroot's suite has a nice interface, but the program needs to get better at detecting zero-day attacks and distinguishing between threats and nonthreats.
Boeing this week filed an application with the United States Federal Communications Commission for a secure Android smartphone called the "Black" that will self-destruct if anyone tries to physically open the case. The company will offer it to the U.S. defense and security communities. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/8361i335C14CD2AA81200.gif[/img] The Black has embedded hardware security features, can be configured through software policies, and has endless modularity capabilities, according to Boeing. "With hardware encryption and other security solutions, you can significantly reduce the potential threat of attacks," Jim McGregor, founder of Tirias Research, told TechNewsWorld. However, "unless you're willing to limit the functionality of the device and/or its services, there will always be some threats."

Technology can be wonderful, but sometimes — like when your Mom finds your Twitter feed — it just creates new problems that were previously unthinkable. The latest case in point: On the first day of the second Formula One preseason test, the Marussia team saw its 2014 car complete only three laps around the track because some witless oaf in the team garage downloaded a “Trojan-type virus” onto its computer system. Whoops. According to [url=http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/112630]the team’s principal John Booth[/url], the infection “cost us the best part of the day”, and contributed to the team getting only 29 laps of testing in across its four days at the Bahrain International Circuit. He expressed concern about the team’s readiness for the first race in Australia next month, saying “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried in the slightest.” [url=http://www.wired.com/autopia/2014/02/virus-f1-car/]Full Article[/url]
The program adds another layer of defense to the operating system and springs to action when malware is executed on the system. It can mitigate attacks so that they are not successful at all or reduced in scope. It should be clear that this is not a 100% protection against malware, but it does add a level of protection to the system that can be quite useful if attackers do not target EMET directly as well. Microsoft has released a Tech Preview of EMET 5.0, the upcoming version of the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit. EMET 5.0 introduces two new mitigations to the 12 security mitigations of version 4.1 which improve the defensive capabilities of the program further.

Hi peeps! Can anyone tell me if there is some kind of programme that lets you wipe your old files from disc so that you can use them again. Probably not, the manufacturers have to make money somehow, but it seems a bit of a waste that you can only use them once, I've got millions of the things with one back-up on.

and agreed to pay Comcast direclty for the bandwidth to get rid of streaming problems. On the plus side now your Netflix will be fast again, but on the downside it sets a bad precedent for net neutrality.

[b]Mozilla has shown off a prototype for a $25 (£15) smartphone that is aimed at the developing world.[/b] The company, which is famed mostly for its Firefox browser, has partnered with Chinese low-cost chip maker Spreadtrum. While not as powerful as more expensive models, the device will run apps and make use of mobile internet. It would appeal to the sorts of people who currently buy cheap "feature" phones, analysts said. Feature phones are highly popular in the developing world as a halfway point between "dumb" phones - just voice calls and other basic functions - and fully-fledged smartphones. Mozilla hopes that it will capture an early lead in a market that is now being targeted by mobile device manufacturers who see the developing world as the remaining area for massive growth. It will face stern competition from bigger, more established brands, however - with more announcements of this kind expected over the course of the next couple of days at the Mobile World Congress in
Hi, I'm wondering if the Webroot Antivirus scans all of the links/sites that are sometimes listed under UTube videos to check if they're OK to use. I've been searching for a movie but have come across lots of links to other sites that stream the full film on-line, are these sites also checked by Webroot?
I know you are located in that area and I might be moving there. I really want to move there but I've hit a snag most of the ISPs seem to be on the bit bad side like comcast and centurylink. I've been with both of them and they both sucked. Are there any alternatives to those two other then a WISP and DISH??? This will prolly make or break the move plans. I CAN NOT deal with a crappy ISP, as what I do REQUIRES stable connectivity. Thank you!
