China's own operating system

China could have a new homegrown operating system by October to take on imported rivals such as Microsoft Corp, Google Inc and Apple Inc, Xinhua news agency said on Sunday. Computer technology became an area of tension between China and the United States after a number of run-ins over cyber security. China is now looking to help its domestic industry catch up with imported systems such as Microsoft's Windows and Google's mobile operating system Android. The operating system would first appear on desktop devices and later extend to smartphone and other mobile devices, Xinhua said, citing Ni Guangnan who heads an official OS development alliance established in March. Ni's comments were originally reported by the People's Post and Telecommunications News, an official trade paper run by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology...For more you need to touch down at windows8newsinfo forum.

Microsoft Office as a Service

Microsoft is providing some of its best products via the cloud. We are not talking about Azure or Office 365 in specific. This is a general article that looks at how Microsoft is implementing Office as a Service,  under SaaS, instead of as standalone software and its benefits for the end users. Though we’ll check out the prices, the article focuses on the free Office as a Service. The name given to Microsoft Office on the cloud is Office 365. There are many editions of it – based on levels and types of usage. There are business editions, household editions, personal edition and one free edition. All other except the free edition, provides you the facility to install a local copy of all components of Microsoft Office. The free edition employs Office Web Apps that provide you with enough features to work and collaborate in real time. If you go for a paid subscription, you get license(s) to install Microsoft Office (Latest version) on your computers locally...For more why not visit windows8newsinfo forum, and you can join while there.



Research team creates undetectable malware PDF Print E-mail

undetectable malware

Most cyber attacks from your typical home hacker, come by way of techniques used 10 years ago or more like phishing scams, poor password management, and things of that nature. But now it seems as though a research team from Germany has developed an all new strain of malware. The team from Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany has developed a new kind of malware that is able to tuck itself secretly beside legitimate software downloads. The malware isn't in the the trusted software, but rather bound to it, enabling it to bypass many of the security measures in place for this kind of malicious software. Since the original application is not modified in anyway, not only does it allow the malware to sneak through, but it can also be a much larger file than usual, allowing for a much deeper feature set. The researchers explain, "upon starting the infected application the binder is started. It parses its own file for additional embedded executable files, reconstructs and executes them, optionally invisible for the user."  Visit windows8newsinfo forum to learn more.

WWT Digital Dome

The WorldWide Telescope is a rich visualization environment that functions as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground- and space-based telescopes to enable seamless, guided explorations of the universe. WorldWide Telescope, created with Microsoft’s high-performance Visual Experience Engine, enables seamless panning and zooming across the night sky blending terabytes of images, data and stories from multiple sources over the Internet into a media-rich, immersive experience.

Rolls-Royce Wraith Took 8 Months to Build

Turn 10 Studios needed extra time to digitally translate the Rolls-Royce Wraith’s craftsmanship into “Forza Motorsport 5” on the Xbox One. It took around eight months for developers to build the super-luxury fastback coupe -- two months longer than average. The Wraith -- the first Rolls-Royce to appear in a video game -- presented unique design challenges that separated it from any other car on the “Forza” roster, said John Wendl, Turn 10’s content director. For instance, the studio had to create custom animations for the game’s engine to accommodate the Wraith’s retractable hood ornament, which hides when the vehicle is parked so people don’t steal the famed trinket. When checking out the Wraith in the “Forzavista” showcase mode, which lets gamers get close-up views of the cars when they aren’t racing, the ornament behaves as it would in real life. The $287,400 Wraith’s coach doors, two-tone paint job and starlight headliner all required extra precision from Turn 10’s developers...For more turn to our forum.

You Might Want to Care about Windows 9

We know almost absolutely nothing about Windows 9. There's been speculation and reported leaked information from internal 'Softies feverishly working on Windows, but there truly is very little solid evidence of anything. So, you'll see a lot of words like "might" and "rumor" and "could" used throughout the rest of this article. I wish I could write a "spoilers" article, but as we've become too familiar over the past couple years from Microsoft, features can be culled or delayed seemingly overnight. There's plenty of hope and desire that Microsoft will release something capable of pulling the company from the brink after a lukewarm Windows 8 reception. If hope and desire were Bitcoins, we'd all be rich folks. There are those that can't stand it when Microsoft does something right, but even then, I think we all are pulling for Microsoft even in a small way. There's been a lot of reported rumors over what Microsoft might be delivering in its revamped Windows version that might appear at the end of September...Complete details are posted on our forum.

Chrome extensions could be malicious

An analysis by security researchers of 48,000 extensions for Google’s Chrome browser uncovered many that are used for fraud and data theft, actions that are mostly undetectable to regular users. The study, due to be presented Thursday at the Usenix Security Symposium in San Diego, forecasts growing security problems around extensions as cybercriminals tap into the rich data contained in Web browsers for profit. They found 130 outright malicious extensions and 4,712 suspicious ones, engaged in a variety of affiliate fraud, credential theft, advertising fraud and social network abuse. “By installing an extension, you will not see any malicious behavior,” said Alexandros Kapravelos, a doctoral candidate at the University of California at Santa Barbara, in a phone interview. “You need to visit specific pages to trigger the malicious behavior.” The researchers developed a system called Hulk, which closely watches how browser extensions behave when interacting with websites...Learn more on our forum.
