Microsoft warns Internet Explorer Users against Eminent Attack

Users of Internet Explorer 9 and earlier versions have been urged to deploy a toolkit that could help protect their PC against a series of attacks hitting its system.

It was revealed earlier in the day by security forum Rapid7 that Internet Explorer was hit with a new zero-day exploit, which takes advantages of a security hole within websites to carry out attacks. This means that anyone using IE to visit a website that has malicious links could have their computer compromised.

The exploit is said to affect Windows XP, Vista and 7 systems.

Click the link to download the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET).

The EMET aims to protect against this issue and should not affect usability of websites.

The New Tablet from Microsoft

There is a new kid on the block and it’s called “Surface”. Microsoft plans to rival Apple’s iPad which has been the leading tablet overtime.

Microsoft unveiled its own brand of tablet yesterday.

The new tablets will be powered by its upcoming Windows 8 system and contain a choice of an Intel or ARM-based processor.

The devices have 10.6 inch (26.9cm) displays, built-in kickstands and are housed in magnesium cases – which the company described as the first of their kind. (more…)

More Tablets

You probably thought to yourself: If  I am going to but a tablet I have three choices – Android, PlayBook or iPad. Well you can now add a fourth. Windows 8 from the all ubiquitous Microsoft is all but live.

At the ongoing Computex event in Taipei (that’s in Taiwan), some manufacturers (Acer, Asus, msi, Samsung, Toshiba…) have showed off new tablets (and PCs) running Microsoft’s latest attempt at recapturing a slice of the mobile market, especially as Windows Phone 7 isn’t exactly soaring. Windows 8, according to boffins at Microsoft, is tailored to the touch environment so it’s basically a tablet OS that is extensible to the conventional PC.

Microsoft is banking on the fact it maintains what is quite comfortably a monopoly in the PC OS market to drive interest and most importantly, sales of its new latest OS considering the vast array of programs available to the Windows platform.

Comodo Dragon

No! not the reptile! it’s a web browser-based on the Chromium engine (the same roots of Google Chrome) only lighter and just as efficient.

If you’re the type that’s wary of keeping your online presence to the most minimal level or like its said – “don’t want to leave bread crumbs”, then this is the browser for you.

Some of  its features include being able to have it start in incognito mode every time without having to mess about in the about:config settings

It’s currently on version 19.0. Point here to download and try it out.
