Google loses 'right to be forgotten' fight

Europe's highest court has ruled that search engines can be ordered to remove links to publicly available news items from their search results. The decision by the European Union Court of Justice (ECJ) has dealt a blow to Google in Europe. The company had, through its Spanish operation Google Spain, appealed an order by the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) that stipulated that the company had to remove links to two pages published in 1998 by Spanish newspaper La Vanguadia. The order followed a complaint by a Spanish national to the AEPD in 2010, after he found that searches for his name made through Google returned links to the two pages, which contained details about a real-estate auction that was held to settle social security debts. Essentially, the complainant believed the links highlighted details about his history that were no longer relevant. While the man's request that the newspaper remove the two pages in question was knocked back, the AEPD did order Google to remove the links from its search results — a decision Google then appealed against...Right to be Forgotten complete coverage can be found on our forum.

Microsoft announces next IE

Microsoft today announced it is developing at least four new features for the next release of Internet Explorer: Web Audio API, Media Capture and Streams, ES6 Promises, and HTTP/2. The company says this is not an exhaustive list of what to expect in the next version, but merely what it is currently confident that it will be able to deliver. Microsoft further says these features form a part of its “commitment to delivering interoperable implementations for the latest features on the modern Web.” The company also mentions that “several other features” are very important, it is working on a plan to support them, and that developers can expect “more updates in the future.” At the same time, Microsoft also took the opportunity today to share its vision for the IE platform going forward: “The web should just work for everyone – users, developers and businesses.” As such, the company emphasized it will continue to push more IE users onto the latest version of the browser, invest in security features that provide broad mitigations to potential vulnerabilities...More on this upcoming release can be found at windows8newsinfo forum.


Windows 365 is not in development nor is it in the pipeline. PDF Print E-mail

Microsoft loves subscription models, heck, every company loves subscription models as they create steady cashflow. With Microsoft offering many such services in the subscription model, including Office 365, it made sense to think that Windows would be the next big platform to go down this route. And that’s where the rumors began with Windows 365. But, according to Mary Jo Foley, it’s all a ruse, Windows 365 is not in development nor is it in the pipeline. The reason why Windows will not go the subscription route makes a bit of sense when you compare it to other Microsoft products. Such that, when was the last time you bought a copy of Windows? Unless you are an enthusiasts, you likely obtained your Windows license through the purchase of new hardware. Unlike Office, which you may have bought at a retail location, Windows is a platform, not so much a service. So there you go, Windows 365 is not only dead, it never existed.

Avast! Security Firm's Forums Attacked

If you're an AVAST customer and regularly use the support forums, you might be wondering today why the forums are offline. Over the weekend, hackers stole user nicknames, user names, email addresses, and passwords from the security company's web-based forums. Fortunately, just the forums were successfully hacked and not the company's customer database. The forums store no payment, license, or financial information, just the necessary credentials for forum participation. AVAST is in the process of rebuilding the forums and migrating to a different software platform. Forum software tends to be the weakest security link for many companies because so much less importance is attributed to them. A lot of times they are implemented because everyone else does it.Companies install them and expect them to maintain themselves, without having a proper community fostering plan in place, which includes managing spam, eliminating questionable links, and protecting those who choose to participate. Many companies deploy open source web forums and eventually pay the price for poorly developed and poorly maintained software...Learn more at windows8newsinfo forum.

Iranian cyber espionage

In an unprecedented, three-year cyber espionage campaign, Iranian hackers created false social networking accounts and a bogus news website to spy on military and political leaders in the United States, Israel and other countries, a cyber intelligence firm said on Thursday. ISight Partners, which uncovered the operation, said the targets include a four-star U.S. Navy admiral, U.S. lawmakers and ambassadors, and personnel from Afghanistan, Britain, Iraq, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The firm declined to identify victims and said it could not say what data had been stolen by the hackers, who were seeking credentials to access government and corporate networks, as well as intelligence on weapons systems and diplomatic negotiations. "If it's been going on for so long, clearly they have had success," iSight Executive Vice President Tiffany Jones told Reuters. The privately held company is based in Dallas, Texas and provides intelligence on cyber threats...There is more posted on our forum.

China Clamping Down

Chinese authorities have launched another in their semi regular clamp downs on social media services, claiming that they are used to "distribute illegal and harmful information, seriously undermining public interests". A number of arrests have been made following the tracking of messages that the authorities claim are linked to terrorist activities. Despite the stringent monitoring of messaging services by government censors, there are still more than 800 million users of services such as WeChat which allow users to express opinions that sometimes go against government policies. The rise of OTT platforms has also been in part attributed to the censorship issue as users seek to evade monitoring of conversations deemed disrespectful to the government and state. China's official media agency, Xinhua said that the latest campaign will "target public accounts on instant messaging services, which can spread information on a large scale and mobilize followers"...Turn to our forum for more.

Microsoft seems determined to quickly pass over the Windows 8 episode, OS hybrid which was designed to unite the world of PCs and tablets as a common platform being disliked by target audience and considered a failure in terms of sales. Between patches for Windows 8.1, designed to soften awaiting those who already use Windows 8, Microsoft is strives to bring Windows 9 to functional stage, ready to be officially unveiled in the first half of next year. According to a Microsoft document quoted by a Chinese website, the Redmond Company will offer to download Windows 9 Release Preview and Windows Phone platform in September for mobile devices in the range of Q2 – Q3 2015. As the name implies, Windows 9 Release Preview doesn’t represent the final form which Windows 9 will have, its role being to demonstrate the progress made by the new Microsoft platform and expose any problems that should be addressed. According to renowned blogger Paul Thurrott, known for the many revelations about Microsoft products,

Find my iPhone

Some iPhone, iPad, and Mac users in Australia are waking up to ransom messages declaring that their devices have been hacked. Several posts on Apple’s official support forums reveal that fraudsters appear to be using the Find my iPhone feature to send messages and lock devices. "Device hacked by Oleg Pliss," reads one message on an iMac, and others have received notices demanding a $50 PayPal payment to unlock an iPhone. While some who have experienced the unusual attack have been able to unlock their devices, others are seeking help from Apple and carriers to regain access to their phones. It’s not immediately clear how pranksters are gaining access to the Apple IDs to take over the devices, nor why the reports are localized to Australia. It’s possible that hackers have obtained access to a leaked list of email addresses and passwords, exploiting the fact that many people will reuse the same account details for their Apple ID. Database breaches are becoming far too common, with eBay, Adobe, Yahoo, and Target all falling victim in recent months...For more turn to our forum.
