HP Reportedly Developing a Powerful New Type of Computer 'The Machine'




Hewlett-Packard (HP) is reportedly working on a new type of powerful computer which it calls “The Machine”. It looks like HP is planning to give a tough competition to Microsoft Windows in future days. On last Thursday, that is May 6, 2014, at the company’s annual customer conference, HP CEO Meg Whitman gave a little more than a glimpse of the company’s plans. 

http://www.supportmart.net/hp-support/
 Just moments after Whitman announced HP’s plans to compete with Microsoft Windows OS, with a new OS that the company is saying will be free and open source; she thanked Microsoft for being the major sponsor of the conference and invited the new CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella.

But just before Nadella joined the conference, HP CTO Martin Fink, Head of HP Labs, unveiled a little of ‘The Machine’. According to HP this new data center computer can be the future of server hardware, as it could “replace a data center’s worth of equipments with a single refrigerator-sized machine”. This machine claims that it can process loads of information in an instant using very less power, almost negligible.   

The details are very few, but what is said is that this new computer from HP is going to make use of a new memory technology called memristors. Memristors are one of the options that the company is exploring; they might represent the biggest change. 

But this new machine from HP is not going to be available in the market any soon, at least for few years. HP began to work on this new machine about a year and half ago. Meanwhile it is the news that ‘The Machine’ will not use Windows OS. In fact Fink said that ‘The Machine’ will use the new OS that HP is currently building. 

He said, “We want to reignite in all of our universities around the world operating system research which we think has been dormant or stagnant for decades.”

“We are, as part of The Machine, announcing our intent to build a new operating system all open source from the ground up, optimized for non-volatile memory systems.

We also have a team that's starting from a Linux environment and stripping out all the bits we don't need. So that way you maintain ... compatibility for apps.

What if we build a version of Android? ... We have a team that's doing that, too.” 

It is quite a long that HP has been in the market, and it is good thing that the company is now experimenting new thing and exploring new regions. Meanwhile, HP computers and printers are well-known products of the company, used and favored by millions of users around the world. These are the best-in-industry products from the company. However, users often, get problems with HP computers and printers. So it is a good thing that one avails the support for HP provided by good companies like SupportMart. Simply talk to experts by dialing their HP supportnumber and get resolutions right away.

All in all, if you are waiting for HP’s ‘The Machine’, then you might have to wait for a while. However, during that time you can keep using other HP products. And if you get problems then contact good companies that provide comprehensive HP computer support and HP printer support.

McAfee Quarterly Report Released: We Are Still Vulnerable To Attacks




In the previous month June 2014, McAfee released its quarterly insecurity reports, which simply concludes that we are still vulnerable to attacks. In fact, according to the report, it is very clear that the situation is getting worse at an increasing speed. The well researched McAfee report has revealed certain daunting facts that need an immediate attention and remedial steps, otherwise, there could be more advanced attacks having increased infiltration, reconnaissance, and persistence features.  

http://www.supportmart.net/computer-security/mcafee-support/
 One major frightening stat that the McAfee report revealed is that, there is a massive increase in the number of mobile malware. On comparing the total number of mobile malware as identified by McAfee in the first quarter of 2012, which was up to a few thousand instances. They have now increased to nearly 4 million unique forms. In terms of new mobile malware, there are about 800,000 instances in each quarter. 

The reports also mentions about the malware infected clones of Flappy Birds game app. McAfee labs has found that 79 percent of sampled clone apps of the popular game, were containing malware. The only purpose of the criminals behind developing a malicious version of popular Android apps is to invade into the user’s mobile devices and then perform illegal actions like installing additional apps, extracting contact list, stealing sensitive data, and tracking phone calls, locations, and messages etc. The company report revealed that a lot of attacks are now getting onto mobile devices through Adobe updates or game apps, and are attacking services like Whatspp and Google Wallet. In the past few months botnet mining was also found to be active on mobile devices. Although later it was found out that botnet mining in mobile devices is not that profitable.  

“The year 2014 has already given us ample evidence that mobile malware developers are playing on these inclinations, to manipulate the familiar, legitimate features in the mobile apps and services we recognize and trust. Developers must become more vigilant with the controls they build into these apps, and users must be more mindful of what permissions they grant” said Vincent Weafer, senior vice president, McAfee Labs.  
   
Besides this alarming report about the rise in the Android malware, McAfee labs also revealed that the web based attacks through malicious URLs have more than doubled in one year period. In the previous year there were nearly 8M instances and now it is over 18M. Most of the servers that are hosting dangerous content and the phishing websites are situated/hosted in the US. The instances of signed malware also raised from 1M instances to 3M instances. There is also an increase in the network attacks with DOS accounting 25 percent of attack, Brute Force accounting 18 percent, Browser attack accounting 16 percent, and so on. 
 
The only conclusion that generates from this report is that the attacks are on a rise. One can’t hide from this increasing problem. However, necessary preventive measures can be taken in order to avoid any kind of security/data breach. Installing good antivirus solutions like McAfee Antivirus and Internet Security solution, being one of the preventive measures. They are reliable security solutions that provide an always-on proactive protection from all kinds of attacks and multiple handy features to remove infections.

Plus staying in contact with expert support companies like SupportMart and others also helps. They are reliable and good sources of technical help.

McAfee Reports an Unsettling Flaw Affecting WordPress.com




McAfee is one of the leading antivirus solution vendors of the world. Not only the company develops strong and reliable antivirus solutions, but it also provides other security solutions and PC utility tools. The company also constantly keeps an eye on the latest data security trends and the attacking techniques used by the criminals. 

The researchers at McAfee recently discovered a flaw in one of the most popular blogging platforms, ‘WordPress.com’. According to McAfee an exploitation of this flaw in WordPress could give the hackers an access to a WordPress account by simply copy pasting a line of code, which is transmitted over Wi-Fi networks. WordPress currently is a home for more than 60 million websites around the world plus, many personal blogs. This fact makes the reported flaw a pretty big deal. 


http://www.supportmart.net/computer-security/mcafee-support/
The security hole is actually the result of WordPress failing to employ encryption for its login cookies. The cookies are one useful aspect of using internet. They are usually secure and basically help while logging into a website. But this time the cookies were not secured. This is because while logging into WordPress in public Wi-Fi, the critical cookie was sent over HTTP in plain text. This means that the cookie is not encrypted, and can be easily intercepted by a hacker who is in the same public Wi-Fi. 

Once the hacker has intercepted the cookie then he/she can bypass two-factor authentication on WordPress. This gives him/her the complete control over the hijacked WordPress user’s account. The hackers can use-exploit the hijacked account in many ways. They can pose as the account holder in comments, or post articles, see private post, create new blog, and see blog stats etc. All of these activities are very useful for phishing attacks. The hackers can post links navigating to malicious websites in the hijacked account’s blog.
A hacker can also make use of the reported vulnerability to activate two-factor-authentication on accounts which haven’t activated the security measure yet. This can possibly block the original account holder from accessing his/her account if his/her mobile is not already linked to the account. 

However the attackers are not able to alter the account password and payment options.     
So how to stay protected? Well the answer is simple. The users have to be more attentive while browsing or logging online, stay away from anything which is suspicious, do not use public Wi-Fi to log into WordPress (for now), and use comprehensive security software, like those of McAfee, Vipre, Norton etc. McAfee antivirus and McAfee internet security are two of the reliable and effective security software at this front. Start using them to stay protected and if problems arise then dial McAfee technical support phone number and connect to the expert technicians. One good company where you can find reliable, easy, and cost effective McAfee support is SupportMart. Get in touch with the experts and get instant resolution to your technical problems. 

To conclude all, a new found flaw in WordPress is here, though the reported flaw’s exploitation cases are not big in number, but the flaw sure is harmful. Simply stay attentive and install reliable antivirus solutions to stay protected. And, when a need of support like VIPRE antivirus support or support for other technical issues is felt, then contact the experts.
