Cyber News Rundown: Canadian Maple Leaf Foods targeted by weekend cyberattacksCanadian food producer Maple Leaf Foods suffer an attack that caused numerous operational outages. The outages were spread across the company’s 21 manufacturing facilities, and they currently don’t have an estimate for when they’ll return to normal operation. In other cybersecurity news, Azov ransomware has been wreaking havoc by corrupting system files without abandon.Azov ransomware corrupts, rather than encryptingResearchers have been investigating the recent mass-distribution of Azov Ransomware, which leaves a ransom note with only journalists as contact points and corrupts all system files instead of using encryption. After hiding on a system for a pre-determined amount of time, the malware begins corrupting each file in 666-byte increment cycles, leaving the alternate 666 bytes original. The reasoning behind distributing wiping malware is still unclear, as it provides little gain to the distributor othe

Eight Reasons Your Next Computer Should Be a PC By Harry McCracken, PCWorldApr 26, 2009 5:00 PMprint Let's just say it: For the vast majority of computer shoppers, buying a Windows PC doesn't quite qualify as a decision. Around nine out of ten computers run one version of Windows or another, making it the world's default option in operating systems. It's opting for something else, like a Mac, that always represents a conscious choice. Which is not to say that there aren't plenty of real reasons to select a computer that runs Windows, even after you've investigated all your options. As a confirmed platform agnostic whose home is overrun with both Windows machines and Macs, I find myself recommending Windows machines to about half my friends and acquaintances who seek computer-shopping advice, and Macs to the other half. So I was happy when PC World asked me to write this article and a companion piece about the virtues of Macs--and I had plenty to say in both instances. Here's my list

By SOMINI SENGUPTA | New York Times – 4 hours ago [b] [/b] [b]MENLO PARK, Calif. —[/b] Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder and chief executive of Facebook, said the company has developed new software to showcase the social network on mobile devices powered by Google’s Android operating system. “Today our phones are designed around apps, not people,” said Mr. Zuckerberg at a news conference at Facebook’s headquarters. “We want to flip that around.” Home converts the Facebook news feed into the home screen on the user’s phone. Pictures take up most of the real estate, with each news feed entry scrolling by like a slide show. Messages and notifications pop up over the home page. To “like” something on the newsfeed requires no more than a double-tap. Facebook apps are within easy reach, making the phone essentially synonymous with the Facebook ecosystem. The company will not show ads immediately on the phone home screen, which Facebook is calling Cover Feed, but it is very li
MBP, mid '09 I think, El Capitan just installed a few days ago. When WRSA - ISC begin a scan, it gives me a "Component Installation Failed" or something to that effect (it fades out quickly). It tells me to contact Help if continues. It does continue. I checked for failed update by forcing an update check: it assures me that I have the latest app. Webroot is on the accept list, on the Mac system Firewall. Ideas?
October 20, 2020How to get the Windows 10 October 2020 UpdateByJohn Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery With organizations moving and adapting from remote to hybrid work scenarios, and essential workers continuing to support us all, it is more important than ever that we continue to provide you with the tools you need to remain protected and productive. In June, we announced Windows 10, version 20H2—and the availability of the first preview build in the Windows Insider Program. We then released a preview build to commercial customers in the Beta and Release Preview Channels for pre-release validation in August. We have continued to make improvements based on the feedback received through these programs and I am pleased to announce that we are beginning the availability of the October 2020 Update. Today’s post offers details on our measured and phased roll out approach, how you can get the update, and information to enable commercial organizations t

Help! (again!) I've just downloaded the Freemake Video Converter so that I can make some DVD's from UTube that I can play on my TV but ever since my laptop has been playing up, crashing, freezing, not able to use upper-case characters, backspace or delete etc! It has also downloaded their Tune-Up Facilities 2013 as well. I'm wondering if it's clashing with Webroots Secure Anywhere Antivirus. It's already removed 1 threat and blocked 2 websites since installing Freemake (3hours ago) much more than its done before and Dell diagnostics havn't found anything wrong but it's still going bonkers! Any advice would be a great help! :@

Hi all! I'm doing a spot of on-line banking with Santander and have had a notice to download their free, on-line banking security programme. They say that it works alongside any Antivirus and that it works on other banking sites identifying and stopping threats that lots of Antivirus software dont check for. Just wondering if it's a good idea to go ahead and download or would it be yet another unnecessary bit of software! Linda

[i]"There's been talk for a while that Microsoft was going to make some big changes to Internet Explorer in the Windows 10 time frame, making IE 'Spartan' look and feel more like Chrome and Firefox. It turns out that what's actually happening is Microsoft is building a new browser, [url=http://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-is-building-a-new-browser-as-part-of-its-windows-10-push/]codenamed Spartan[/url], which is not IE 12 — at least according to a couple of sources of mine.

Doesnot streaming tv or otherwise make your PC more vulnerable to security risks malware and hacking etc? this has been a surprisingly difficult question for me to find an answer. (maybe because all browsers and servers have an interest in having us do it?). thanks for any guidance
Microsoft is caught in the ultimate good news/bad news syndrome: Windows 8.1 will likely fix Windows 8's woes, but PC sales will still take a nose dive. So says two recent Gartner reports, and they may well be right.

The change was [url=https://twitter.com/mahoekst/status/813848362285838336]teased[/url] on Twitter by Matthijs Hoekstra, Senior Program Manager for Windows Enterprise Developer Platform, and spotted by a user that goes by the nickname of [url=https://twitter.com/Chris123NT/status/814303929374830592]Chris123NT[/url]. According to Hoekstra, only Windows 10 Insider builds will feature the green error screen, while stable Windows 10 versions will continue to use the classic blue-themed error page.

I have noticed that Webroot Community site is displayed on my Android phone (in Opera mobile) in the full interface instead of mobile. Something had to be changed on your end because I have set the mobile view as default in Opera mobile browser and I was viewing the site in mobile interface until Friday or Saturday (sorry but I cannot recall exactly, I have been on visit in my friend's wine cellars). I cleared cache, temps etc. but to no avail. Everytime I go on the Community it is displayed in the full. Before that, the mobile view was always showed.
