"These vulnerabilities allow malware to read the computer's memory, effectively giving access to sensitive user data such as passwords, cryptographic keys, banking information, and so on", Frederik Mennes, senior manager of market and security strategy at VASCO Data Security's Competence Center, told eWEEK in email remarks. Basically, the iPad Pro comes with one Lightning port. All the other connectivity you require can be achieved with adaptors you'll have to buy separately, from Ethernet to USB 3.0, from Mini Display to SD card readers. Since then other fellow tech media outlets have published similar findings. If they are using Firefox, the version should be Firefox 57 at least.
It is rather disappointing considering the whole product was designed around the notion of more flexibility.
This is still primarily an Intel CPU flaw. It brings fixes for the recent Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities that affect even ARM processors. The fixes that Microsoft deployed last week are producing a similar impact on how antivirus software now interacts with the Windows OS. The update changes the behavior of Intel's branch prediction to be less aggressive.
The Redmond, Washington, developer has been clear that it does not open the upgrade spigot all the way at the start.
As concerns shares volumes, in share Capital Company has 171.40 million outstanding shares among them 167.34 million shares have been floated in market exchange.
Microsoft yesterday released the Meltdown and Spectre fixes as part of cumulative update for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, labelled KB4056892, which brings the OS Build up to 16299.192. Unfortunately, it seems it's not easy to disable the automatic updates without gpedit tweaks, so it tries installing and rolling-back the update over and over.
On Wednesday, Microsoft began releasing the patch, but with an important caveat: the security update will only arrive for computers running compatible antivirus software.
iPads set the standard for battery life in tablets, and this advantage is yet unmatched.
That's more than two years after Microsoft first enabled the feature! Note that all results are based on an average of at least three runs.
After ensuring Windows 10 is updated, users should also install the latest BIOS and firmware updates from the company that made the device (Dell, HP, Lenovo, and others). Please note lower is better for this test as we're measuring the time it takes to complete a render.
On another Linux site, the Linux Kernel Mailing List, AMD software engineer Thomas Lendacky observed in late December that AMD processors do not appear to have the same vulnerability as Intel chips.
"Intel believes its products are the most secure in the world and that, with the support of its partners, the current solutions to this issue provide the best possible security for its customers".
