Microsoft Makes Windows Virtual Service Easier To Upgrade

Do you specialize in security systems and want to earn $ 100,000? Microsoft is offering this hefty hacker who can violate the security of Linux Personalized Company.

The challenge is only for those who sign up on the Azure Sphere Security Research Challenge website. Interested parties should send the completed form by the next 05/15.

Applications will be reviewed weekly and accepted researchers will be notified by email. The contest runs from June 1st to August 31st.

Azure Sphere OS is a compact and customized version of Linux, designed to run on specialized chips for its Internet of Things (IoT) platform.

The operating system was created specifically for this platform, ensuring that basic services and applications are run isolated in a sandbox for security reasons.

The challenge is focused on the Azure Sphere operating system itself and not the underlying part that runs in the cloud – and is already eligible for Azure rewards program awards.

Microsoft is specifically looking for a group of security researchers to try to break the security of this version of Linux. Physical attacks do not count.

Second Beta Of Macos Big Sur Now Available For Developers

Apple has released the second beta of macOS 11 Big Sur for all developers. If you already had the first beta of the system installed, you just need to update to this second new previous version from System Preferences as if you were working with any stable version.

As a successor to macOS Catalina, macOS Big Sur includes a completely redesigned new interface and applications adapted to the novelties that have come to iOS and iPadOS in the past (such as the new Messages).

Also, it will be the first version of macOS that we can install natively on Mac with Apple Silicon that we will see at the end of the year.

Waiting for the news that can be discovered

At the moment we have no important news beyond what has already been discovered. Still, the developers always find some curiosities as a result of exploring the source code of these betas.

It will also be a matter of seeing if any surprises are revealed when this beta is installed in the Developer Transition Kit with A12Z chip, which for practical purposes is the first Mac with Apple Silicon chip that is already under scrutiny by programmers.

Remember: macOS Big Sur is a beta. And therefore, it is an unstable version of the system that can compromise your personal data.

Do not install it if you are not entirely sure of what you do and you take responsibility for all the consequences.

As always, the best thing I can do is recommend that you wait until macOS Big Sur can be downloaded stably and openly for everyone.

Lenovo Presents The Chromebook Flex 3i, A Chrome Os Convertible At A Great Price

Lenovo Presents The Chromebook Flex 3i

Chromebook Flex 3i:- Lenovo has added a new model to its equipment catalog under the Google platform, a Chromebook Flex 3i that stands out for its convertible format and a contained price.

The Chromebooks are now a real alternative to Windows and Mac for a group of users who are looking for simplicity, ease of use, administration or security.

Although the level of hardware has increased in recent years and some models can be found that boast similar hardware to that offered by the Windows platform, laptops under Chrome OS are still the majority in the entry range.

This segment is part of this Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3i, a thin and light convertible with high mobility, with an 11.6-inch multi-touch screen and a hinge system that allows it to rotate the screen up to 360 degrees allowing multiple modes of use, ultraportable, tablet or store modes for presentations.

The power and volume buttons are located on the side and are thus accessible no matter what mode you are using the computer in.

Its hardware base is basic, but it should be enough to cover the team’s focus with the latest low-end Intel processors, the Gemini Lake Refresh. Like the latest Google devices, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3i can run web applications, those of the Chrome Store, and also those of Android thanks to the support of the Google Play Store and regular Linux applications.

Lenovo’s new Chromebook is available in some regions priced at $ 329. A basic model in hardware, but with the attractiveness of a contained price to meet all budgets and in a convertible format that allows offering laptop and tablet functions in a single device. Lenovo has a good collection of Chromebooks in the catalog, such as the attractive 2 in 1 “Duet”. Unfortunately, as we said in the Chromebooks guide, they are not as well distributed as Apple Macs or everything that comes with Windows.

‘Critical’ flaw in Windows 10 is already actively used by cybercrime

'Critical' flaw in Windows 10 is already actively used by cybercrime

Microsoft announced on Monday (23) considered one security alert “critical” according to the company’s criteria. A breach in Windows opened even in fully updated versions of the operating system, is being actively exploited by cybercrime.

The vulnerability falls into the “zero-day” category, a term in the digital security world that represents a flaw that is discovered by cybercriminals before the responsible company becomes aware of the problem, which complicates the correction, forcing the company to hurry to release an update as soon as possible.

The flaw lies in Adobe Type Manager, a DLL file that helps the operating system render fonts on Windows. Through this loophole, which can be exploited, for example, by convincing someone to open a document received by email, it is possible to force remote code execution, which, in practice, puts the computer totally under the control of a cybercriminal.

The flaw document released by Microsoft says the flaw affects multiple versions of the operating system, including all versions actively supported by the company. The list also shows Windows 7 among those affected, but as it officially lost support earlier this year, users will not receive a fix for the breach.

Microsoft did not give a specific time to release the update. Traditionally, the company releases a Windows patch package on the second Tuesday of each month, which has become known as “Patch Tuesday.” If the company decides to wait for the next Patch Tuesday, the gap will be solved only on April 14th.
