    Exclamation Coin Mining Malware Bypasses Antivirus, Crashes Windows When Force-Closed

    Coin Mining Malware Bypasses Antivirus, Crashes Windows When Force-Closed
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Codenamed WinstarNssmMiner, the malware is specifically supposed to use all system resources to mine for Monero, using several protection techniques to bypass antivirus solutions and make sure users don’t close its processes."
    "First and foremost, when it infects a system, WinstarNssmMiner tries to avoid antivirus detection by not launching its malicious activities when a scan is performed, instead waiting for the right time to begin the next phase of infection."







    ================================================== ==

    This appears to be a much more aggressive malware than others. The way it is being described to operate is disconcerting. Be sure to keep your shields up and that your Antivirus and Antimalware software is all up to date!

    Exclamation Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 April 2018 Update Black Screen of Death Bug

    Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 April 2018 Update Black Screen of Death Bug
    Workarounds available, but you’re not going to like them
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Microsoft has recently acknowledged a bug in Windows 10 April 2018 Update that pushes computers to a black desktop and never completing the boot, rendering them useless with no recovery option whatsoever."
    "First of all, systems might no longer be able to boot and end up with a blank screen that only shows a Recycle Bin and a Taskbar. The Start menu isn’t working and launching the Task Manager doesn’t make any difference because Windows cannot be restored."







    ================================================== ==

    Has anyone had this problem with the WINDOWS 10 OS?

    Exclamation Windows 10 April 2018 Update Now Causing Major Battery Drain on Laptops

    Windows 10 April 2018 Update Now Causing Major Battery Drain on Laptops
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Windows 10 April 2018 Update is slowly proving to be one of the buggiest Microsoft products lately, as new issues are discovered on a daily basis, without the company delivering fixes for most of them."
    "This time, users are complaining that Windows 10 April 2018 Update causes battery drain on their devices, with no workaround available either than rolling back to the previous Windows 10 version."
    “I used to get 6~8 hours doing basic web surfing. Now with Win 10 1803, I'm not even getting 4 hours under similar usage...it's like it has been changed from a business laptop to a gaming laptop (w/o the gaming performance),” one user explains."







    ================================================== ==

    Feeling drained about having no fixes to your updates that may be buggy? Now there's a Battery Drain being reported for WINDOWS 10 laptop users! According to these reports Windows 10 apparently continues to have problems that are being identified quite often.

    Exclamation Apple Asked by Governments to Share User Data More Often than You Think

    Apple Asked by Governments to Share User Data More Often than You Think
    Cupertino publishes transparency report on data requests
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Apple has long been one of the companies opposing to government requests to break into customers’ devices, but it still helps law enforcement with user information whenever the data is stored on its servers."
    "Apple says its next transparency report will also include data on the government requests to take down apps from the App Store."







    ==================================

    Why are they wanting to remove App Store apps one would wonder? Who is ordering that and what is the urgency in it? Sounds too much like something Russia or China or N. Korea would do rather than the United States.

    Exclamation Microsoft Windows, Apple’s iPhone Used by North Korea for Cyber Operations

    Microsoft Windows, Apple’s iPhone Used by North Korea for Cyber Operations
    Research shows US technology used by North Korea
    By Bogdan Popa

    "A research conducted by threat intelligence company Recorded Future reveals that North Korea is using technology developed by American and South Korean companies to carry out its cyber operations."
    "The report reveals that despite sanctions against the country, North Korea has relied on latest-generation technology developed by its often considered to be enemies to access the Internet and eventually launch attacks that disrupted the activity of certain governments."







    ================================================== ==

    This report is certainly disturbing and can lead one to feel that the talk about North Korea ending its nuclear program is simply not on the level.

    Exclamation Say Goodbye to Yahoo Messenger as It Will Be Discontinued on July 17, 2018

    Say Goodbye to Yahoo Messenger as It Will Be Discontinued on July 17, 2018
    Yahoo Messenger will no longer be supported after July 17
    By Marius Nestor

    "It's time to say goodbye to an icon, the Yahoo Messenger instant messaging client from Yahoo!, which a generation used on a daily basis to communicate with friends, family, and co-workers for more than a decade."
    "Since you won't be able to access your chats after July 17, 2018, Yahoo will allow you to download all your existing chat history on your PC during the next 6 months. To download your chats, go to the downloader request site, sign in with your Yahoo ID, select a verification method, and download the archive to an email address."




    ================================================== ==

    YAHOO users need to become aware of this new change so that they can start making other arrangements if they have been using Yahoo Messenger.

    Wow. It's been years, now, but I used to use Messenger all the time.

    Exclamation Microsoft CEO on US Immigration Policy: It’s Cruel and Abusive

    Microsoft CEO on US Immigration Policy: It’s Cruel and Abusive
    We’re not working with ICE on this policy, he says
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Nadella starts by emphasizing that he is an immigrant himself and separating families and children is nothing more than a “cruel and abusive” policy."
    “America is a nation of immigrants, and we’re able to attract people from around the world to contribute to our economy, our communities and our companies,” Nadella said."
    “We are also a beacon of hope for those who need it the most. This is what makes America stronger. We will always stand for immigration policies that preserve every person’s dignity and human rights. That means standing with every immigrant who works at Microsoft and standing for change in the inhumane treatment of children at the U.S. border today.”




    ################################################## ##############################

    KUDOS to Mr. Nadella on speaking out against the most egregious and harmful Trump policy to separate children from their parents. I am glad to see Microsoft standing up for the children in doing this.

    Exclamation Apple Says It Will Repair Keyboard Issues on Some MacBooks for Free

    Apple Says It Will Repair Keyboard Issues on Some MacBooks for Free
    By Marius Nestor

    "Apple published on Friday a new support article where it announced the availability of a worldwide keyboard service program for select MacBook and MacBook Pro models."
    "The Cupertino, California-based company has finally acknowledged that some of its MacBook and MacBook Pro models do have a problem with their keyboard where letters or characters may repeat unexpectedly or do not appear at all."





    ################################################## ##############################

    Good information for MACBOOK users! Do you need this service?

    Exclamation Is Microsoft Doing the Right Thing by Killing the Windows Control Panel?

    Is Microsoft Doing the Right Thing by Killing the Windows Control Panel?
    Redmond planning to switch all options to Settings
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Opinions on whether the Control Panel should go away or not are still mixed. While some believe that this is one of the features that should never be killed because it makes setting up Windows a breeze, others think it’s a thing of the past that has to get the ax because a modern replacement is available."
    "These users don’t want to see the Control Panel go mostly because they’re super familiar with it. It’s an essential part of Windows 7, and by forcing them to switch to the Settings app, they have to fully embrace the modern push that Windows 10 is based on."
    “Either keep Settings or go back to Control Panel. This disjointed mess of finding settings everywhere isn’t efficient. Also, there is no way you can stuff everything from Control Panel in the Settings and keep it efficient. I haven’t seen any actual improvements in the last years, you’re making it worse and worse. Change for the sake of change doesn’t make it better,” a user called Roy D. explains in a message in the Feedback Hub."







    ################################################## ##############################

    Are you a WINDOWS 7 user? How do you feel about this? Are you OK with this move by MS? If not, why not?
