  6. Researchers Develop Cross-Browser Fingerprinting Technique Researchers have developed a cross-browser fingerprinting technique that uses operating system and hardware level features. Fingerprinting has been limited for the most part to individual web browsers in the past. If a user switched browsers regularly, fingerprinting could not be used to link the user to these browsers. Fingerprinting tests like the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Panopticlick or BrowserPrint, try to gather data about the browser and underlying operating system. They use all the data to create a fingerprint of the browser/computer combination, and may be able to do the same in future sessions. Cross-browser fingerprinting was out of the picture up until now. While other methods existed to track users across browsers, for instance by requiring them to sign into accounts to use a service or recording IP addresses, no fingerprinting method came close to providing a working solution. Cross-browser fingerprinting The researchers who published the research paper (Cross-)Browser Fingerprinting via OS and Hardware Level Features think that they have found a way. They have created an online service that demonstrates the fingerprinting technique. It is called Unique Machine, and works on any device that supports JavaScript. A click on Get My Fingerprint starts the process. It works, if JavaScript is enabled, and if connections to a few sites are allowed. The scan takes a couple of seconds to complete. The result is a browser fingerprint, and also a computer fingerprint; the latter is not finalized yet and still in development. You may hit the details button on the Unique Machine website for the list of tested cross-browser features. The following features are tested currently: Time Zone. Number of CPU Cores. Fonts. Audio. Screen Ratio and depth. WebGL. Ad Blocking. Canvas. Cookies. Encoding. GPU. Hash values of GPU rendering results. Language. Plugins. The idea is now that you will get similar results when you use a different browser on the same system to run the fingerprinting test a second time. The researchers state that the technique identified 99.2% of users correctly. The sample size is a bit small, 1903 users and 3615 fingerprint samples. I ran tests on a machine using different browsers, and results were mixed. The computer fingerprint was identical when I ran the fingerprinting test in Chrome, Chrome Canary and Vivaldi, but different in Firefox and Edge. The three browsers the hash was identical in are all based on Chromium. This is probably the reason why the fingerprint was identical. The source code of the cross browser fingerprinting site is available on GitHub. Now You: Did you cross-browser fingerprinting work on your devices? Source
  7. The Document Foundation: Munich Returning to Windows and Office a Step Backwards Munich exploring a potential switch back to Windows The Document Foundation, which is also the maker of LibreOffice, the productivity suite that’s being used on Munich’s computers powered by LiMux, says in a statement that returning to Windows and Microsoft Office is a step backwards for the city because of a number of factors that include Microsoft’s proprietary formats. In a statement released today, The Document Foundation explains that the proposal that’s being discussed today by Munich authorities actually ignores the main reason the city abandoned Microsoft software in the first place: “independence from a single software vendor and the move from proprietary to standard document formats.” Document issues when upgrading Microsoft Office “Although the proposal associates MS Office document formats with the ‘industry standard’ concept, it should be clear that all MS Office documents are proprietary and obfuscated, and therefore inappropriate for interoperability, even when they have been recognized by international standard bodies such as ISO,” the organization explains in a press release that you can read in full below. The Document Foundation then goes on to point to a series of issues that might arise from moving back to Microsoft Office, such as document problems when upgrading from a previous release of Redmond’s productivity suite. Costs would also be substantially increased and the decision would be against the current trend of adopting open document standards in countries like the UK, France, Sweden, and the Netherlands. “The Document Foundation thinks that the proposal to be discussed on Wednesday, February 15, represents a significant step backwards for the City of Munich, with a substantial increase in expenditure, an unknown amount of hidden cost related to interoperability, and a questionable usage of taxpayers money,” the press release also states. Microsoft hasn’t yet issued a statement on Munich’s possible return to Windows and Office, but given that the proposal will be discussed in just a few hours, expect all the involved parties to release comments shortly after that.

  9. Microsoft Edge Browser Accused of Displaying Fake News in New Tabs News outlet partnership go wrong for Edge users All the news is delivered by MSN with help from news outlets across the world, and while at first glance everything should be pretty helpful for users, it turns out that the browser is suffering from an issue that the Internet is trying to deal with as we speak: fake news. A number of users have turned to the built-in Windows 10 Feedback Hub app to complain about what they claim to be fake news displayed in Microsoft Edge, explaining that the balanced news that they should find in the browser do not exist and most sources are trying to give articles a certain spin that shouldn’t be there. “I have been disgusted to read such clearly slanted stories. I would prefer to read news reports that allowed me to draw my own conclusions that did not seem intent on spinning the news in one direction or another. It is time that you offered BALANCED news instead of relying on your partnerships with news outlets that clearly have an agenda in their news reporting,” one such comment reads. Microsoft still tightlipped Microsoft Edge does not allow users to edit news sources, but only to choose the categories they want to receive articles for, so there’s no way to deal with the alleged fake news without the company’s own tweaks. Of course, Microsoft Edge does not deliberately spread fake news, and if this is indeed happening, it’s only the fault of the sources that the browser is configured to use to show articles in the start page and in new tabs. Microsoft, however, hasn’t said a single thing until now and is yet to respond to the suggestion posted in the Feedback Hub, so it remains to be seen if the company gives more power to users to configure news sources or if the company itself removes sources involved in spreading fake news.

  10. Microsoft’s Obscure ‘Self Service for Mobile’ Office Activation Microsoft requires a product activation after installing. Users of Microsoft Office currently are facing trouble during telephone activation. After dealing with this issue, I came across another obscure behavior, Microsoft’s ‘Self Service for Mobile’ solution to activate Microsoft Office via mobile devices. Microsoft describes how to activate Microsoft Office 2013, 2016 and Office 365 within this document. There are several possibilities to activate an installed product, via Internet or via Telephone for instance. Activation by phone is required, if the maximum Internet activation threshold is reached. But Office activation by phone fails Within my blog post Office Telephone activation is no longer supported error I’ve addressed the basis issue. If a user re-installs Office, the phone activation fails. The activation dialog box shows the message “Telephone activation is no longer supported for your product“. Microsoft has confirmed this issue for Office 2016 users having a non subscriber installation. But also users of Microsoft Office 2010 or Microsoft Office 2013 are affected. A blog reader posted a tip: Use Mobile devices activation… I’ve posted an article Office 2010: Telefonaktivierung eingestellt? – Merkwürdigkeit II about the Office 2010 telephone activation issue within my German blog, back in January 2017. Then a reader pointed me within a comment to a Self Service for Mobile website. The link http: // bit.ly/2cQPMCb, shortened by bit.ly, points to a website https: // microsoft.gointeract.io/mobileweb/… that provides an ability to activate Microsoft Office (see screenshot below). After selecting a 6 or 7 Digits entry, an activation window with numerical buttons to enter the installation id will be shown (see screenshots shown below). The user has to enter the installation id and receives the activation id – plain and simple. Some users commented within my German blog, that this feature works like a charm. Obscurity, conspiracy, oh my God, what have they done? I didn’t inspect the posted link until writing last Fridays blog post Office Telephone activation is no longer supported error. My idea was, to mention the “Self Service for Mobile” page within the new article. I managed to alter the link to direct it to the English Self Service for Mobile language service site. Suddenly I noticed, that both, the German and also the English “Self Service for Mobile” sites uses https, but are flagged as “unsecure” in Google Chrome (see the screenshot below, showing the German edition of this web page. The popup shown for the web site „Self Service for Mobile“ says, that there is mixed content (images) on the page, so it’s not secure. That catches my attention, and I started to investigate the details. Below are the details for the German version of the web site shown in Google Chrome (but the English web site has the same issues). First of all, I noticed, that the „Self Service for Mobile“ site doesn’t belongs to a microsoft.com domain – in my view a must for a Microsoft activation page. Inspecting the details, I found out, the site contains mixed content (an image contained within the site was delivered via http). The content of the site was also delivered by Cloudflare (I’ve never noticed that case for MS websites before). The image flagged in the mixed content issue was the Microsoft logo, shown within the sites header, transferred via http. The certificate was issued by Go Daddy (an US company) and ends on March 2017. I’ve never noticed, that Go Daddy belongs to Microsoft. I came across Go Daddy during analyzing a phishing campaign months ago. A compromised server, used as a relay by a phishing campaign, has been hosted (according to Whois records) by Go Daddy. But my take down notice send to Go Daddy has never been answered. That causes all alarm bells ringing in my head, because it’s a typical behavior used in phishing sites. Also my further findings didn’t calm the alarm bells in my head. The subdomain microsoft used above doesn’t belongs to a Microsoft domain, it points to a domain gointeract.io. Tying to obtain details about the owner of gointeract.io via WhoIs ended with the following record. Domain : gointeract.io Status : Live Expiry : 2021-03-14 NS 1 : ns-887.awsdns-46.net NS 2 : ns-1211.awsdns-23.org NS 3 : ns-127.awsdns-15.com NS 4 : ns-1980.awsdns-55.co.uk Owner OrgName : Jacada Check for 'gointeract.sh' --- http://www.nic.sh/go/whois/gointeract.sh Check for 'gointeract.ac' --- http://www.nic.ac/go/whois/gointeract.ac Pretty short, isn’t it? No Admin c, no contact person, and Microsoft isn’t mentioned at all, but the domain has been registered till 2021. The Owner OrgName Jacada was unknown to me. Searching the web didn’t gave me more insights at first. Overall, the whole site looks obscure to me. The tiny text, shown within the browser’s lower left corner, was a hyperlink. The German edition of the „Self Service for Mobile“ site opens a French Microsoft site – the English site opens an English Microsoft site. My first conclusion was: Hell, I was tricked by a phishing comment – somebody set up this site to grab installation ids of Office users. So I deactivated the link within the comment and I posted a warning within my German blog post, not to use this „Self Service for Mobile“ site. I also tried to contact the user, who has posted the comment, via e-mail. … but “Microsoft” provides these links … User JaDz responded immediately in an additional comment, and wrote, that the link shortened via bit.ly has been send from Microsoft via SMS – after he tried the telephone activation and selected the option to activate via a mobile device. I didn’t noticed that before – so my conclusion was: Hell, this obscure „Self Service for Mobile“ site is indeed related to Microsoft. Then I started again a web search, but this time with the keywords Jacada and Microsoft. Google showed several hits, pointing to the site jacada.com (see screenshot below). It seems that Jacada is a kind of service provider for several customers. I wasn’t able to find Microsoft within the customer reference. But I know, that Microsoft used external services for some activities. Now I suppose, that somebody from Jacada set up the „Self Service for Mobile“ activation site. The Ajax code used is obviously able to communicate with Microsoft’s activation servers and obtain an activation id. And Microsoft’s activation mechanism provides an option to send the bit.ly link via SMS. Closing words: Security by obscurity? At this point I was left really puzzled. We are not talking about a startup located within a garage. We are having dealing with Microsoft, a multi billion company, that claims to run highly secured and trustable cloud infrastructures world wide. But what’s left, after we wipe of the marketing stuff? The Office activation via telephone is broken (Microsoft confirmed that, after it was reported by customers!). As a customer in need to activate a legal owned, but re-installed, Microsoft Office is facing a nasty situation. Telephone activation is refused, the customers will be (wrongly) notified, that this option is no longer supported. Internet activation is refused due “to many online activations” – well done. But we are not finish yet. They set up a „Self Service for Mobile“ activation site in a way, that is frequently used by phishers. They are sending links via SMS to this site requesting to enter sensitive data like install ids. A site that is using mixed content via https, and is displaying an activation id. In my eyes a security night mare. But maybe I’ve overlooked or misinterpreted something. If you have more insights or an idea, or if my assumptions a wrong, feel free, to drop a comment. I will try to reach out and ask Microsoft for a comment about this issue.

  12. All Microsoft Product Phone Activation [How To Change Installation ID Without Changing Product Key] Why and when we need to change Installation ID 1. When you make activating Windows during call via Skype cause you may be given wrong answer one of the question you have been asked, your Installation ID will be blocked there is no way you can activate unless you change the Installation ID. Changing the key automatickly gives you different Installation ID but there are times there is only one key available to activate your Windows. 2. Since MS announce Windows 8.1 RTM looks they have tighten the security specially activating Windows 8.1 Enterprise Edition can be problematic activation only one Installation ID and you have only one key. It sound weird but there is a time using same installation ID you can get verified or not verified depends on the calling center you are using or you calling them different time, its like luck or your chance. Here is the Instruction you can get second or even third Installation ID using same Product Key. Here is the usual way how to get First Installation ID you all probably know about it i repeat for the reference: 1. Use daily updated working Product Keys... [Posted on first page] 2. Type this script and hit Enter slmgr.vbs -ipk <Windows Product Key> 3. Right click the start menu and choose "command prompt (admin) Type slui 4 in the command prompt then click NEXT. 4. UK Activation Center: [+448000188354] - I suggest use UK Call Center cause i am getting better success result using this number.....! 5. You probably succecsfully getting verified with first attempt but if you fail with first ID NO PANIC.....! ======================================================================================== Getting Second Installation ID with same Product Key: 2.1. Right click Windows start button select Run or WIN + R 2.2. Type devmgmt.msc 2.3. When you come to the Device Manager Disable Network Adapters 2.4. Go back to Command Prompt With Admin Type this script and hit Enter slmgr.vbs -ipk <Windows Product Key> 2.5. Type slui 4 in the command prompt then click NEXT. After this you will get different Installation ID with same Product Key then you can carry on dialling Microsoft Call Center to get Confirmation ID 2.6. After activation you can re enable Network Adapters back again ======================================================================================== Getting Third Installation ID with same Product Key: 3.1. This time we are going to Disable Sound Card Driver on Device Manager to order to get third Installation ID 3.2. Once Again: slmgr.vbs -ipk <Windows Product Key> 3.3. Type slui 4 in the command prompt then click NEXT. 3.4. Finally you can call MS again try your luck Third time. Note: I only test Network Adapter & Sound Card you may even find more Device to disable to get some more installation ID..... : ) 3.5. Re enable Sound Card Driver back again. ======================================================================================== Getting Fourth Installation ID with same Product Key: Disable& Uninstall IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and getting another Installation ID There is one more way getting different installation ID using same Microsoft Product Key. 1. Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\ Device Manager >>>> Click IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers 2a. Right click the device driver if you see Disable Option click 2b. If there is no Disable Option available then Uninstall Option [No Panic after activation DONE you can re install again] 3. After Disable / Uninstall Driver get another ID and finalize the activation... 4. After successfully activate you can unable the driver if you uninstall then go to the Action Tub then Click Scan for hardware changes you will see driver will re install again after scan done. Best Of Luck. *** If you have tried both option still can not get verify last option TRY TO DISABLE BOTH INTERNET ADAPTER AND SOUND CARD....!! *** Thanks for MasterZeus tips for getting different installation ID. november_ra1n 25 September 2013
  13. Microsoft Re-Releases Snooping Patches KB 2952664, KB 2976978 Earlier versions of the Win7 and 8.1 patches kicked off enhanced snooping routines, and there's no indication what's changed in these versions We don't know what KB 2952664 (for Windows 7) and KB 2976978 (for Windows 8.1) actually do. But both patches have been shown in the past to trigger a new Windows task called DoScheduledTelemetryRun. The patches appeared in the Automatic Update chute earlier todayas Optional, so they won't be installed unless you specifically check and install them. But in the past, the Optional versions have been converted rapidly to Recommended, and thus installed on most machines. The last release of KB 2952664 went from Optional to Recommend in a week. Microsoft's descriptions of the patches are quite bland: GWX, of course, is Microsoft's malware-like "Get Windows 10" campaign that plagued Windows 7 and 8.1 users last year. I last wrote about the patches on Oct. 5, 2016: The revision dates on the KB articles don't instill any confidence. When I wrote about KB 2952664 last October, I noted that the KB article was up to revision 25, dated Oct. 4, 2016. The current KB article, dated Feb. 9, 2017, is at revision 11. I have no idea what's up. Why is Microsoft releasing this CEIP diagnostic program on a Thursday? Why isn't it being held for next Tuesday's Monthly Rollup? Why does it fall outside the announced schedule of Security Only and Monthly Rollup patches? Why did the revision numbers change? But I do know that earlier versions of these patches triggered new snooping scans, whether the Customer Experience Improvement Program is enabled or not. And I do know that Microsoft hasn't documented much at all. Discussion continues on the AskWoody Lounge.

  14. Microsoft previously argued that gag orders are often used for crimes not involving national security. Microsoft can pursue its legal challenge against the US government, a federal court has ruled, in a case that the software giant argues that government gag orders are unconstitutional. The judge said Microsoft made a reasonable argument that gag orders, issued by government agencies to prevent the company from telling the customer of an investigation, violates its constitutional rights to free speech. Judge James Robart upheld those First Amendment rights in his ruling Thursday, but declined its Fourth Amendment argument against unreasonable searches and seizures, saying that overturning the precedent would need to go to a higher court. "Microsoft alleges that indefinite nondisclosure orders implicate its First Amendment rights because the orders impinge on its right to speak about governmental affairs and the public's right to access search warrants," said Robart in his ruling. Microsoft brought the case in April last year, arguing that the government should not be allowed to prevent a company from telling a customer when their data has been turned over to investigators. These gag orders can be used in cases where national security is at risk, such as terrorism investigations, but are often used for low-level cases and non-national security related matters. According to the briefs filed by dozens of US organizations -- including Apple, Fox News, Twitter, thousands of gag orders were for an "unlimited or indefinite duration," meaning the companies may never be allowed to disclose the orders to anyone. In Microsoft's case, it was in possession of almost 2,600 separate secrecy orders. "We're pleased this ruling enables our case to move forward toward a reasonable solution that works for law enforcement and ensures secrecy is used only when necessary," said Brad Smith, Microsoft's chief legal officer in a statement. A spokesperson for the Justice Dept. was not immediately available. By Zack Whittaker http://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-allowed-to-sue-government-over-gag-orders-court-decides/
  15. Microsoft’s New Windows 10 Version Is Malware, Epic CEO Says Tim Sweeney can’t stop his rant against Windows 10 Cloud In a series of tweets, Sweeney calls Windows 10 Cloud “ransomware,” a form of malware that compromises computers by locking down files and asking for a ransom to restore access. “Windows Cloud is ransomware: It locks out Windows software you previously bought and makes you pay to unlock it by upgrading to Windows Pro,” he said in a tweet dated February 7. “Firefox blocked. Google Chrome blocked. Google search blocked as web browser search option. OpenGL, Vulcan, OpenVR, Oculus VR blocked,” he continued. “Microsoft is making a huge move against the whole PC ecosystem: @Adobe, @Autodesk, #Valve, @EA, @Activision, @Google, @Mozilla. All blocked. Windows Cloud will steal your Steam PC game library and ransom it back to you...for a price.” The Windows 10 Cloud story So is this thing true? Not at all, and it all starts with the purpose of Windows 10 Cloud, which by the way, is not yet confirmed and we don’t even know if everything we heard about it is true. First and foremost, Windows 10 Cloud appears to be a version of the Windows 10 operating system that exclusively focuses on Store apps, just like Windows RT did when it was launched in 2012 with the Surface RT. There is a good chance that Windows 10 Cloud would be offered to OEMs completely free to install it on their devices, and this contributes to lower prices when these models hits the shelves. Microsoft is expected to offer a built-in upgrade option that would allow Windows 10 Cloud users to switch to Windows 10 Pro, and thus get Win32 app support, should they pay for a license. This is pretty much what Sweeney is criticizing, claiming that once users pay for the upgrade, they get access to Win32 apps (this is also most likely the reason he calls Windows 10 Cloud “ransomware”). And yet, this is by no means ransomware, but only a way to bring cheaper devices to the market and boost adoption of UWP apps. The Epic CEO, however, is also criticizing Microsoft’s aggressive push for universal apps, claiming that the company is actually trying to destroy the Win32 ecosystem by forcing users to switch to Store apps entirely. Windows Cloud is ransomware: It locks out Windows software you previously bought and makes you pay to unlock it by upgrading to Windows Pro. — Tim Sweeney (@TimSweeneyEpic) February 7, 2017 Source
  16. One OS to rule all devices? Short Bytes: After Windows 10 Composable Shell and Windows 10 Cloud leaks, there are reports regarding Microsoft working on Windows Andromeda. It’s expected to compete directly with Google’s hybrid OS project Andromeda. Microsoft is expected to realize its OneCore operating system dream with Andromeda. While nothing is certain at the moment, Windows Andromeda feature is unlikely to arrive before Redstone 3. Back in September 2016, we told you that Google is working on a hybrid OS that’s supposed to be a combination of Android and Chrome OS. The project is currently named Andromeda, but there’s no fixed release date. Now, surprisingly, it has been revealed that Microsoft is also working on a new project called Andromeda. At the moment, we don’t even know how to address it. So, I’ll stick with “Windows Andromeda.” Moreover, Microsoft aims to do something similar to Google, i.e., build a hybrid OS that provides a similar experience on all devices. This is something that Microsoft has been trying to achieve for a long time. As reported by MSPU, Windows Andromeda might be a part of something even bigger, i.e., its new Composable Shell. For those who don’t know, it’s a new adaptive shell that’ll allow the Windows OS to adapt to the device. Looking at the current state of Microsoft’s operating systems on different devices, they do share the universal OneCore, but the company has designed different shells for them. These shells are used by Microsoft for different Windows 10 devices, including PCs, mobile, Xbox, HoloLens, IoT, etc. Windows Andromeda is expected to improve and extend the capabilities of Windows 10 Continuum. It’ll get advanced features like toast notifications, resizable windows, PC-like complete taskbar, and other polished components. About the name Windows Andromeda, I think Microsoft is going to change it. It’s just a codename, just like Windows 10 Cloud. Windows Andromeda is likely to arrive later this year, but not before Windows 10 Redstone 3. Also, it goes without saying that nothing is certain at the moment.

  17. On the consumer side of the market, one of Microsoft's most important strategies revolves around the Microsoft Store. This online outlet for apps, games, music, and video is prominently featured in every installation of Windows 10 and is an integrated part of the Xbox experience. However, if my recent experience with the service is any indication, Microsoft has some serious work and catching up to do with its store if it wants to compete with Netflix, Google, Steam, and Amazon. In December 2016, I bought a new gaming PC. It is a top of the line computer with all the bells and whistles from the ibuypower.com online boutique. As an incentive, I was given a coupon for a $100 credit on the Microsoft Store. I had never used the Microsoft Store, so this gave me an excuse to give it a try. I was sorely disappointed. First of all, the game choices were absolutely atrocious. The store did have some big franchises like Call of Duty, but there were also some notable missing titles. For example, no Civilization Series at all. There was no Elder Scrolls series, no Dishonored Series, and no Witcher Series. Those are four of the biggest franchises in the history of PC gaming. It is no wonder that PC gamers stick with Steam to buy their games. The apps section was generally adequate, with the usual suspects all represented: Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, iHeart Radio, Dropbox, etc. Of course, there was Office 365 and all its parts available. I am not much of an "app guy," but I didn't see many apps missing from the store—at least in the major player category. The selection in the movies and television section was noticeably light. Even with $100 worth of credits, I found it difficult to find a movie to rent that wasn't recently released. I rented the HD versions of The Accountant and Suicide Squad for $4.99 each. To play your selections you have to use the Movies & TV app that comes with Windows 10. That is where the real problems start. I have a 4K television and the player does not like displaying in 2160p. Periodically, the picture would just fade to black with only the audio remaining. The movie was still streaming and playing, but the video was nonexistent. The only way to get it back was by restarting the television. A very frustrating experience. I solved the problem by reverting to the 1080p resolution—the Windows 10 player could handle that resolution apparently. Needless to say, that experience, regardless of whether it was the fault of the Windows 10 software, the video driver of the PC, or the television hardware itself, is totally unacceptable. I can stream a movie or television show to my 4K TV with my Roku without any problems at all and that is why I use it almost exclusively. The only bright spot in the Microsoft Store was the music section. I am assuming that Microsoft has a deal with some company in the music industry because the selection of available music matches iTunes and other services. The exception is podcasts—there are no podcasts available on the Microsoft Store. Bottom line Compared to the competition from the likes of Netflix, Steam, Amazon, and Google, the Microsoft Store is completely inadequate. Judging by the lack of execution, I am not certain Microsoft really wants to compete in this market. The entire effort seems half-hearted and unsure. It may be a better strategy at this point for Microsoft to partner with an existing service like Steam. Valve wants Steam to be a one-stop shop for games, apps, music, and video, but it is having problems getting titles beyond games on its service. Microsoft can supply the music, video, and apps that Steam is lacking, while Steam can provide the games the Microsoft Store is missing so badly. Seems like a match made in business strategy heaven to me. If something drastic is not done to improve the overall Microsoft Store experience, I see the service languishing in obscurity for years to come. Source
  18. Windows 10 Had More Vulnerabilities than Windows 7 Last Year This doesn’t necessarily mean it’s less secure though Specifically, the study shows that last year, Microsoft addressed a total of 729 vulnerabilities in its software, more than the 703 confirmed for 2015. What’s a bit worrying, however, is that this is nearly the double of the vulnerability count in 2014, when Microsoft found and fixed 383 security flaws. The research also indicates that Internet Explorer continues to be the Microsoft application with the biggest number of vulnerabilities, with an all-time chart indicating that the browser was affected by no less than 1,261 flaws. Surprisingly, however, Windows 10 is the runner-up, with Microsoft’s latest operating system getting the second spot with 705 vulnerabilities. Windows 10 was launched in July 2015 and 2016 was its first full year on the market. Windows Server 2012 is third with 660 vulnerabilities, while Windows 7 comes next with 647 flaws. Windows Vista is fifth with 621. Users not exposed despite the bigger number of vulnerabilities What’s essential to know is that although the number of vulnerabilities increased in Windows 10, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the latest operating system is less secure than its predecessors. Most of these vulnerabilities were privately reported to Microsoft and they were fixed before any exploits went public, so users weren’t exposed to any attacks. At the same time, Microsoft is also paying particular focus to making Windows 10 capable of mitigating zero-day vulnerabilities even when no patch is available. Recently, the company revealed that Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which was launched in August 2016, managed to cope with attacks aimed at exploiting unpatched vulnerabilities in the operating system, keeping users secure until Microsoft actually delivered a fix. Furthermore, Microsoft has already started downplaying Windows 7, explaining that it’s less secure than Windows 10 and pointing to the security features that its latest operating system has and which are missing because of the obvious technical limitations on its predecessors.

  19. Anonymity is critical for the sanctity of the internet and, as it turns out, it could be endangered by Microsoft, thereby putting Windows users at severe risk. It has been discovered that Windows users running the Tor browser can unwittingly reveal their masked identities. This is achieved by exploiting a relatively simple loophole enabled by Microsoft’s own DRM system. Windows users running the Tor browser can be tricked into uncloaking themselves, with a pretty straightforward trick based on Microsoft's DRM system. The discovery was made by Hacker House, which says it's been researching social engineering attacks made using DRM-protected content. What the UK-based security outfit found is that a pretty straightforward bit of social engineering – “click on this media file” – can, at the very least, reveal the user's real IP address. Here's what's going on: DRM-protected media has to fetch its licence key from a server. If it's not signed properly, Windows raises a dialogue to warn you. “However, this warning DOES NOT appear if the DRM license has been signed correctly and the Digital Signature Object, Content Encryption Object and Extended Content Encryption Object contain the appropriate cryptographic signing performed by an authorised Microsoft License Server profile”, the author writes. Microsoft sets high barriers to entry for those who want to start signing media: “If you want to build your own Microsoft DRM signing solution the price-tag is around US$10,000,” Hacker House notes. What they've seen in the wild is someone managing to generate signed content, apparently without paying that toll. “As these “signed WMV” files do not present any alert to a user before opening them they can be used quite effectively to decloak users of the popular privacy tool TorBrowser with very little warning”, they write. The risk that media files could expose users is known to Tor, which warns users to run Tails if they want to run media files. It's not the first time people have seen social engineering attacks based on media files: the old “you need a plug-in to play this file” strategy had a Windows DRM variant back in 2013, according to Virus Total.

  21. Some Windows 10 Devices Still Exposed to DMA Attacks That Can Steal BitLocker Keys An upcoming Windows 10 Insiders Build version will include a patch that will improve the protection against DMA attacks that could allow attackers to extract BitLocker encryption keys and other sensitive information from Windows 10 and 8.1 PCs. DMA (Direct Memory Access) is an acronym used to describe hardware ports that allow external components to directly connect and access a computer's memory (RAM). DMA attacks are a combo of software and hardware hacks that allow an intruder to obtain a computer's memory content via one of the computer's DMA ports. Depending on the timing of his attack, the stolen memory data can contain sensitive information such as the BitLocker PIN, encryption keys, passwords, and others. Researcher demoes DMA attack against protected PC DMA attacks aren't new, and have existed since the 90s, and Microsoft introduced protections against such attack vectors with the release of Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Protection measures included certain group policies that would disable all DMA ports during startup, and would later freeze all DMA ports if the user locked his PC, but keep DMA ports open to data transfers if they were connected before the PC was locked. According to Finish security expert Sami Laiho, the protection measures Microsoft introduced were inneffective and didn't cover all types of DMA ports. This lead to situations where an attacker could extract data from DMA ports even if the computer's owner had enabled DMA port protections. Laiho demoed one such attack via a FireWire port at the Microsoft Ignite conference last year. The attack's description and demo start at 44:55 in the video below: Microsoft's DMA port protections were ineffective Via email, Laiho has detailed some of Microsoft's problems with DMA ports and their protections: "DMA-attacks were for years blocked with instructions from Microsoft," Laiho said. "They have been and are incorrect." "In Windows 8.1 Microsoft said they had a feature that would not allow DMA-attacks if the computer was locked. This ended up being misinformation," Laiho noted. "In Windows 10 Microsoft said this [DMA protection] feature was now in place and ON by default. This was misinformation as well as it is there but not ON by default, and [...] it doesn’t apply to all devices, only some." Laiho also added that "this [DMA protection feature] was configurable only for people who used Microsoft InTune MDM (very few)." For the past few years, the researcher has been pestering the Microsoft security team to expand this protection. Last week, Microsoft finally admitted he was right. "This [current] mitigation only protects PCI-based buses, for example, ExpressCard, Thunderbolt, & some docking stations (PCIe based). Older, non-PCI buses such as 1394 and CardBus are still vulnerable," Microsoft admitted. Updated DMA attack protection coming in a few weeks "They will provide a Group Policy setting in a few weeks to the Windows Insiders [Build] and later publicly," Laiho told Bleeping Computer. "This will still only protect against the more modern busses, so you need to use this and my instructions to make it a safe combo." Visit Laiho's blog for updated instructions on how to properly shut down DMA ports running on old buses. Source
  22. Microsoft Shows Windows 10 Market Share Growing Steadily, But The Numbers Are Fake Microsoft’s own Windows 10 share numbers have always seemed a little, well, generous. While NetMarketShare’s OS usage share figures show the new operating system doing fine, but lagging some distance behind Windows 7 (as you'd expect), Microsoft’s figures paint an entirely different picture. Five months ago, the software giant showed Windows 10 hitting 50 percent in the US, and two months ago, it had the new OS overtaking Windows 7 globally. Today’s update though stretches the believability just a little too far. Unlike NetMarketShare which updates its usage share numbers monthly, Microsoft's Windows Trends page is updated every 2-3 months. So while in a couple of days’ time NetMarketShare will report the numbers for January, Microsoft is only just now posting figures for November. That means that when Microsoft showed Windows 10 overtaking Windows 7, this apparently happened in August last year. Most other analysts don’t see that seismic shift happening globally until December 2017, at the earliest. There are other differences in what NetMarketShare and Microsoft report too. NetMarketShare gathers usage data -- the number of people using the OS -- while Microsoft records the number of devices the OS is installed on, including (presumably) unsold devices. NetMarketShare shows all flavors of Windows, from XP up, as well as other operating systems, while Microsoft only records Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. According to the latest figures from Microsoft, in November 2016 Windows 10 had 46 percent of the global Windows market. In the same time, Windows 7 declined to 39 percent (in contrast, in that month NetMarketShare had Windows 10 on 23.72 percent and Windows 7 on 47.17 percent). Microsoft's update shows steady, and I guess fairly believable, growth for the new OS. The last time the figures were updated, Windows 10 had 43 percent share in August, and Windows 7 had 42 percent. So why do I say the numbers are fake? Well, the growth of Windows 10 and the decline of Windows 7 is just way too neat to be real. According to the Windows Trends figures, Microsoft grew by exactly one percentage point a month, every month from July to November (42 percent, 43 percent, 44 percent, 45 percent, 46 percent). At the same time, Windows 7 declined by exactly the same amount. And if that doesn’t sound unlikely enough, Windows 8.1’s share went up one percentage point in August (to 13 percent) and hasn’t changed since. Windows 8’s share (2 percent) hasn’t wavered either. And that's ridiculous. Windows 8.x is an OS in decline. It’s possible the new numbers are just placeholders, and Microsoft has dropped them in while awaiting the real figures (although why it would do that I have no idea). But if that's not the case, then I call BS. Microsoft’s Windows share numbers have been raising eyebrows for a while, but this latest lot smacks of just being made up. I’ve asked Microsoft for comment, and will update the story when I hear back. Source
  23. No Kidding: Windows XP Has Just as Many Users as Windows 10 in China StatCounter shows Windows XP is shockingly popular in China China is one particular market where Windows XP continues to be one of the most popular desktop operating systems, despite the obvious security risks that increase every new day without patches. Statistics provided by third-party research firm StatCounter provide us with a worrying look at how widely-adopted Windows XP continues to be in China, even though users are strongly recommended to switch to a newer OS version, such as Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10, all of which are still supported. And what’s even worse is that despite the fact that Windows 10 was available free of charge for Windows 7 and 8.1 users, and Microsoft was so aggressive in moving users to its latest OS, Windows XP continues to be super-popular. And StatCounter claims that XP has almost as many users as Windows 10. Windows 7 still number one Specifically, Windows 7 is leading the pack (no surprise here) with 49.36 percent share, followed by the Windows 10 - Windows XP duo with 18.52 percent and 18.36 percent, respectively. Windows 8.1 is so far behind that it’s almost not even worth mentioning in these stats, as it’s powering only 3.35 percent of the desktop computers in the country. MacOS is very close with 3.16 percent, while Windows 8 is installed on only 1.02 percent of the PCs in China. It goes without saying that convincing users to migrate to the latest version of Windows is more difficult in China than anywhere else, and with Windows 7 still powering nearly 1 in 2 PCs in the country, there’s no doubt that in 2020 the software giant will once experience a Windows XP moment. There are voices who claim that old Windows remains particularly popular in China because of pirated versions, but at this point, it’s as easy to find a pirated copy of Windows 10 as it is for Windows XP. In other words, piracy can hardly be considered a reason for sticking with Windows XP, but rather outdated hardware that doesn’t meet the requirements of Windows 10. Source

  25. Microsoft is no stranger to pissing people off, particularly when it comes to Windows 10. There have been endless cries about forced updates, complaints about ads, moaning about privacy, and now the CEO of Vivaldi has lashed out at the company for its anti-competitive practices with Microsoft Edge. Jon von Tetzchner says that Microsoft has forgotten about the "actual real-life people that use technology in their daily lives." He takes particular umbrage at Windows 10's continued insistence of resetting the default browser to Edge. Indicating that his patience has now run out, von Tetzchner points to a 72-year-old friend who was confused by the change and unable to reverse things. He says that Microsoft is failing to respect the decisions made by users, and this is something that needs to stop. Every time Windows 10 upgrades, it changes the default browser to Edge. Same thing tends to happen when a new browser is installed -- for some reason, it leads to restoring Edge as the default option. Not the new browser, and not even the browser that was there as a default one previously. Microsoft has made it complicated for a non-technical user to bring their old default browser back. As someone involved in the development of software, von Tetzchner is acutely aware of the desire to increase user numbers. But this is not an excuse for foisting unwanted software onto people: Our goal as technology companies should be to provide great software to our users. At the same time, we should accept that some users prefer software created by other companies. It is our responsibility to be fair to the users, and this is what should drive the technology industry forward. Stripping users of their ability to choose or forcefully limiting their options stalls progress. Focusing on building great products is what should drive us to excel. He concludes with a simple question and a simple demand of Microsoft: Where has the user's absolute prerogative to make a choice gone? It is time to do the right thing. Stop stealing the default browser, accept user choice and compete on the merits. Do you feel that Microsoft has been taking liberties and acting anti-competitively? Article source
