    64% of Microsoft Vulnerabilities Mitigated by Removing Admin Rights

    anyweb
    By anyweb,
    As geeks, we're well aware of the importance of running as a normal user instead of as root (UNIX/Linux/BSD) or administrator (Windows).

A report by BeyondTrust looked at how many security bulletins issused by Microsoft are mitigated by simply... Not running as administrator.   Despite the advances made by Microsoft on securing Windows, the fact

    Until now, Microsoft has remained pretty tight-lipped on Windows 7 SP1, and the only information we have thus far on it is the leaked info from an array of sources, primarily Russian enthusiast site WZOR. However, today, amongst a flurry of virtualization-related chatter, Microsoft said a little something about SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.   On the Windows 7 front, nothing much was said asides from the fact that Windows 7 will simply include a wide array of “minor updates”.

    "With the latest releases of Opera, Google Chrome and Firefox continuing to push the boundaries of the web, the once-dominant Internet Explorer is looking less and less relevant every day. But we should expect Microsoft to go on the offensive at its upcoming MIX 2010 developer conference in Las Vegas, where, it has been speculated, the company will demonstrate the first beta builds of Internet Explorer 9 and possibly offer a preview release of the browser to developers. Several clues point to th

    Update - Restart Issues After Installing MS10-015 and the Alureon Rootkit

    We wanted to provide you with an update on our ongoing investigation into the “blue screen” issues affecting a limited number of customers who installed MS10-015. We have been working around the clock with our customers, partners and several teams at Microsoft to determine the cause of these issues. Our investigation has concluded that the reboot occurs because the system is infected with malware, specifically the Alureon rootkit. We were able to reach this conclusion after the comprehensive

    Microsoft Unveils Windows Phone 7 Series

    By anyweb,
    So, after much, much speculation and many, many rumours, Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Series, its newest mobile operating system. Hold on to your hats, because uncharacteristically for the Redmond giant, they've rebuilt everything from the ground up - this system has little to no connection to the Windows Mobile of yore. I don't say this lightly - but dear lord, Windows Phone 7 Series is full of win. Update: Hands-on video from Engadget inside. Update II: There is no sync

    By anyweb,
    A 17-year-old bug in Windows will be patched by Microsoft in its latest security update.   The February update for Windows will close the loophole that dates from the time of the DOS operating system.   First appearing in Windows NT 3.1, the vulnerability has been carried over into almost every version of Windows that has appeared since.   The monthly security update will also tackle a further 25 holes in Windows, five of which are rated as "critical".   Home hijack   The ancient bug w
