Your Windows XP computer is a liability

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

While the death of Windows XP is a surprise to very few, chances are, your place of work is so tight-fisted that they’re still running everything on the creaking OS. Well, you might want to tell your boss (and if you are the boss, pull your finger out already) that Microsoft have not only stopped support for the operating system, but they’ll also stop their free anti-virus software. So basically, you will be using a computer that is just asking for trouble and malfunctions. On Microsoft’s sites, they say that the Malicious Software Removal Tool and updates to Microsoft Security Essentials will stop being a thing after 14th July 2015. Yes. That’s a date that is now gone. If you don’t know, the Malicious Software Removal Tool checks your computer for infections by prevalent malicious software. Normally, it is updated once a month, but as of yesterday, any threats can now waltz their way inside your XP computer and cause bother. And you can guarantee that cyber-crooks will be looking to exploit those who are lazy and have thought ‘it’ll be fine’. That’s what they do. They’re good at it too. Naturally, if you’re running a computer that has XP on […]

We’re talking about Agar.io, of course, a simple game with hand-drawn graphics (thanks, MS Paint!) and a checkered board as a background, where circles overtake other circles, and all of that happens at a frantic pace. After a few popular YouTubers played the game for a while, it has really picked up, and we’re looking forward to your high scores in the comments right …

Microsoft employee: Samsung is disabling Windows Security Update feature

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Samsung is allegedly shipping notebooks and laptops with a custom software updater that disables Windows Updates without users consent leaving them unsecured, it has been revealed. Microsoft support engineer, Patrick Barker, was the one who, while analyzing a user’s system registry, discovered that Samsung’s SW Update tool used a program called “Disable_Windowsupdate.exe” to intentionally disable Microsoft’s built in update system for Windows. He found that attempting to re-enable Windows Update didn’t help, as Samsung’s software would simply disable the Microsoft update tool again upon rebooting. Samsung’s software is an OEM updating tool that updates the system’s drivers and keeps third-party utilities (bloatware) installed, while the Windows update in question is responsible for delivering bug fixes, driver updates, program updates and crucial security patches for Microsoft’s operating system. The update’s absence will leave holes discovered in Windows unfixed and as a result the systems would become vulnerable to attack by cyber criminals, viruses and hacking. Barker has documented his discovery in his own blog. “Windows Update remains a critical component of our security commitment to our customers. We do not recommend disabling or modifying Windows Update in any way as this could expose a customer to increased security risks. We are […]
