microsoft's climb to a trillionAs can be seen from the graph above, Microsoft’s share price has been on a tear since Satya Nadella took over the leadership of the company, but how long can that continue? According to analysts at Evercore ISI, there is still plenty of steam left in the engine, and Microsoft could “reasonably” arrive at a $1 trillion market cap by 2020, if not sooner. Unsurprisingly they do not base this projection on the growth of Windows or Xbox, but on Microsoft’s now central Cloud computing focus. They were particularly impressed with the new Microsoft 365 offering, which bundles a number of Microsoft applications to businesses, seeing it as a key growth driver, and expected Office penetration to increase more in business due to Microsoft’s push to front-line workers and the education market. Microsoft reported some new success and growth in that area recently...Continue reading at OUR FORUM.
 
 
Microsoft’s Malware Protection Engine needs an emergency patch PDF Print E-mail

microsoft malware protection engineOne of the most dangerous things an app can do is process random files that could be from anywhere, and but that is exactly what an antivirus app needs to do, and sometimes when you stare into the abyss, the abyss stared back at you. Such was the case just recently when Microsoft discovered that a specially crafted file could cause a memory corruption error when it is scanned by its Malware Protection Engine, used in both the consumer and enterprise version of its Windows Defender app. The malware was then able to execute code with LocalSystem privileges, which is pretty close to full admin. Because files can be delivered in numerous ways to a PC, and they all have to be scanned by Defender, the vulnerability is very serious. “There are many ways that an attacker could place a specially crafted file in a location that is scanned by the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine. For example, an attacker could use a website to deliver a specially crafted file to the victim’s system that is scanned when the website is viewed by the user,” Microsoft explains...Learn more on OUR FORUM.

apple home security kitA HomeKit vulnerability in the current version of iOS 11.2 has been demonstrated to 9to5Mac that allows unauthorized control of accessories including smart locks and garage door openers. Our understanding is Apple has rolled out a server-side fix that now prevents unauthorized access from occurring while limiting some functionality, and an update to iOS 11.2 coming next week will restore that full functionality. The vulnerability, which we won’t describe in detail and was difficult to reproduce, allowed unauthorized control of HomeKit-connected accessories including smart lights, thermostats, and plugs. The most serious ramification of this vulnerability prior to the fix is unauthorized remote control of smart locks and connected garage door openers. The vulnerability required at least one iPhone or iPad on iOS 11.2, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, connected to the HomeKit user’s iCloud account; earlier versions of iOS were not affected...You need to visit OUR FORUM to learn more.

windows on armMicrosoft and Qualcomm are showing off the first Windows 10 on ARM devices, which provide Win32 app compatibility via emulation. Most models won't be available until next Spring, however. Windows PCs with multi-day battery life soon may no longer be just a pipe dream. A year ago, Microsoft announced it was working with its PC partners to bring Windows 10 to Qualcomm's ARM processors. The resulting machines, part of the "Always Connected PC" ecosystem, would start rolling out before the end of calendar 2017, officials said. Today, December 5, Microsoft provided a progress report on Windows on ARM at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Tech Summit. Microsoft and PC makers Asus and HP showed off new PCs running Windows 10 on Snapdragon 835 at the event. Asus' NovoGo will begin shipping at least in quantities before year-end, I've heard. Models with 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage will be available starting at $599, and 8GB/256 GB storage model at $799, Asus officials said today. Asus is claiming 22 hours of continuous video playback and 30 days of standby...Full review can be found on OUR FORUM.

android oreo go editionSince Android’s creation, our mission has been to bring the power of computing to everyone. As a global operating system, Android has grown to more than 2 billion active devices around the world, with more users in India than the U.S. To make sure billions more people can get access to computing, it’s important that entry-level devices are fully functioning smartphones that can browse the web and use apps. At Google I/O this year, we gave an early look at a project we called “Android Go” to make this possible. We’re excited to announce that this software experience—Android Oreo (Go edition)—is ready, and launching as a part of the Android 8.1 release tomorrow. Android Oreo devices with 512MB to 1GB of memory will come with the all the Go optimizations. This Android Oreo (Go edition) experience is made up of three key components: Android Oreo is the most secure version of Android yet, so when you buy an Android Oreo (Go edition) device, you’ll be getting all the same security features...Discover these components and more at OUR FORUM.
 
Microsoft’s Windows 10 S is now a viable operating system PDF Print E-mail

windows 10 sMicrosoft’s Windows S which debuted with the Surface Laptop has been the subject of some debate for its short existence. To briefly recap, Windows 10 S is a variant of Windows 10 S which has been streamlined and optimized for security and speed, the trade-off being a few limitations of varying importance. Microsoft won’t let you install software from anywhere but the Microsoft Store, and hides the registry editor and command line tools so you can’t really dive deep into your PC. Yet, despite all those limitations, a case could be made that Windows 10 S could evolve into something that goes beyond functional, but is actually desirable to use. To begin with the negatives first, Windows 10 S is still nearly mythical. This isn’t saying anything good or bad about the OS, just that it barely seems to exist at the moment. Microsoft shipped the OS with the Surface Laptop for the first time — though it was with an easy upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Microsoft also announced a number of devices, yet more devices featuring Windows 10 S have yet to come out...

UK Government piles on the anti-Kaspersky bandwagon PDF Print E-mail

anti-Kaspersky bandwagonDespite repeated vigorous denials, it seems anti-virus company Kaspersky is unable to convince anyone that matters that they are not in league with the Russian government. Reuters reports that UK’s National Cyber Security Centre chief Ciaran Martin sent a memo to other government departments warning them that as Russia is “a highly capable cyber threat actor which uses cyber as a tool of statecraft,”  that has the intent to target the UK and its critical infrastructure, computers with info that could harm national security shouldn’t use an anti-virus software developed by a Russian company. In July Kaspersky was similarly been removed from the US governments approved vendors list after concerns were raised that the software provided by the vendor could allow the Kremlin access to the US government’s secure computer systems. Best Buy also removed their software from their shelves. The company has been accused of facilitating the stealing of classified data from US and Israel, though Kaspersky claimed the vulnerabilities used were simply a natural feature of software development. Kaspersky has fought back against the allegations by in October offering to allow 3rd party checkers to review its source code...Complete details are posted on OUR FORUM.
