WikiLeaks today revealed 3 new hacking tools built by the CIA that target Mac and Linux computers. The leaked hacking tools are supposedly related to the CIA’s so-called Imperial project.
The first hacking tool called Achilles is probably the most interesting out of the three. Achilles can be used by CIA operators to essentially pack malicious applications with an actual macOS app (.dmg) for one-time execution. Once a user installs the infected file, the malicious app would run in the background without the user noticing its execution, and it’ll also self-destruct — leaving the actual application look untouched. The first version of Achilles was built back in 2011, tested only on macOS’ Snow Leopard (10.6).

If you see the message It looks like someone else might be using your account when you go on to sign into your Outlook, SkyDrive, Xbox, here are a few things you need to know.

With so much on offer, and that too for free, it does sound like a brilliant deal – and it is no doubt. However, there is one downside – it is not rare for users of Microsoft Accounts to see a message – It looks like someone else might be using your account message from Microsoft.

Looks like there is no such thing as the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update after PDF Print E-mail

It was reported earlier this week that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be known as the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update in some countries. As it turns out, that’s not going to be the case.
Microsoft today confirmed (via Ars Technica) that there is no such thing as the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update. Redmond claimed that the name was shown in some countries due to “mistranslation” and that the update will indeed be known as the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update everywhere. It is no secret that the “Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” is one of the worst product names from Microsoft. In parts of the world, there is no such thing as Fall due to the fact that the season is referred to as Autumn in some regions and Spring in others. If the update had different names in different parts of the world, that would actually be even worse as it’ll result in confusion for regular users. Microsoft hasn’t been too creative when it comes to naming Windows 10 updates, and I personally hope it doesn’t get any worse from here.

San Diego Comic Con International is the biggest geek-fest of the year and whether you’re lucky enough to attend, or even if you’re not, you can always guarantee some tantalising footage from some of the top upcoming movies is sure to follow! As much as we love a shiny new HD trailer, sometimes this isn’t always the way we get to see the footage first and illegal recordings surface from the SDCC every year and grainy videos pop up all over the social networking sites. This year, however, the organisers are expected to employ special technology to prevent the clips from leaking ahead of time and keep them exclusive to the event and its attendees. It was actually Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn who teased on his Facebook page that his new flick will be represented at the event and also dropped the bomb about the new high tech pirate preventing measures: “You might see something if you’re in Hall H on July 23 with me and the Marvel panel. Or if someone secretly films that – which is less likely to happen because of new technology, but I still know sometimes happens – then you’ll see it right after. If not then, it will be a short while.”
