Web News / Heaps of Windows 10 internal builds, private source code leak online
« Last post by Frands on June 26, 2017, 10:47:54 PM »
Hi :)

The Register on 23 Jun 2017:

Quote
A massive trove of Microsoft's internal Windows operating system builds and chunks of its core source code have leaked online.
The data – some 32TB of official and non-public installation images and software blueprints that compress down to 8TB – were uploaded to betaarchive.com, the latest load of files provided just earlier this week. It is believed the confidential data in this dump was exfiltrated from Microsoft's in-house systems around March this year.
The leaked code is Microsoft's Shared Source Kit: according to people who have seen its contents, it includes the source to the base Windows 10 hardware drivers plus Redmond's PnP code, its USB and Wi-Fi stacks, its storage drivers, and ARM-specific OneCore kernel code.
Anyone who has this information can scour it for security vulnerabilities, which could be exploited to hack Windows systems worldwide. The code runs at the heart of the operating system, at some of its most trusted levels. It is supposed to be for Microsoft, hardware manufacturers, and select customers' eyes only.

Security Alerts & Briefings / Bug in Intel 6th & 7th gen (Skylake & Kaby Lake) CPUs
« Last post by ky331 on June 26, 2017, 09:32:07 PM »
The microcode bug discovered in the Intel chips could, under certain conditions, cause processors to behave erratically, leading to possible application and system stability issues and even data corruption and data loss.

A BIOS/UEFI update, when released to motherboard manufacturers, is expected to fix the issue.   Until then, disabling hyperthreading serves to mitigate the problem.

This morning I got another one of those SPAM emails selling a pharmaceutical from someone who couldn't spell the name of his alleged product.

The problem is, too many people don't read emails like that carefully -- skim, react to "problems with your account" (OMG, what will I do!) and then click the link and *POOF* they have the account credentials.
