worldwide botnetUp to a million organizations around the world have already been infected by a new computer bot network that has the potential to "take down the internet", researchers warn. According to cybersecurity company Check Point, a new botnet has been spotted which is enslaving internet-of-things (IoT) devices – mainly internet routers and remote cameras. "The next cyber-hurricane is about to come," the firm claimed in a report this week (19 October). Research suggested that the new botnet is evolving at a rapid pace, and could soon be weaponized to launch cyber attacks in the same fashion as "Mirai" last year. Check Point said: "While some technical aspects lead us to suspect a possible connection to Mirai, this is an entirely new and far more sophisticated campaign that is rapidly spreading worldwide."Get up-to-date on this latest attack on the internet at our FORUM

nov update & office 2007If you’re still using Windows 10 November Update from two years ago, or Office 2007 or Outlook 2007, you would want to upgrade to a newer version or move to an alternative solution. Then there is a bad news for you guys that Microsoft on Tuesday officially ended up their support for all of these services, meaning that you won’t be receiving any updates or security patches from the company moving forward. Windows 10 November Update (version 1511), released in November 2015, was the first major update to Windows 10. The move follows Microsoft ending support for original Windows 10 build earlier this year. The move affects Home, Education, Pro, and Enterprise editions. Also hitting the end of the road are Office 2007 and Outlook 2007. Microsoft first releases the productivity suite and the email client 10 years ago. Mainstream support for both the services ended on October 9, 2012. Much like Windows 10, if your Office and Outlook clients have reached the end of support of their cycle, you should consider upgrading to a newer version of Office and Outlook or find an alternative service...Full details can be found on our FORUM.
