The Top IT news of September has finally arrived, I leave you to your reading!
TOP 1: Microsoft Windows 7 crashes……
Servicing stack (SSU) is the name that will now be used for all Windows 7 updates, regardless of their functions. This resolution comes after a series of bugs regarding the latest security updates. So don’t be surprised by this change but maybe it’s time to upgrade to Windows 10, right? (Ah and by the way, our ceBox® are provided with the latest versions of Windows 10;))
TOP 2: A throughput of several hundred Gbit/s is a dream come true, isn’t it?
Well yes, it is theoretically possible thanks to the new generation optical fiber with multiplied capacities.
First a little history point:
Optical fibre is a very fine yarn made of glass or plastic, it is used for lighting, fibroscopy and digital transmission. Fibre first appeared in 1970 thanks to the American company Corning Glass Works.
This new version made in 2018, known as the “multiplied” version, will no longer be composed of a single core but up to 19 cores ideally, which will greatly increase throughput capacity. We are looking forward to this!!!!!
TOP 3: cryptojacking, nearly 500 million victims.
Cryptojacking is (again) a new form of cybercrime.
In a few words, it is about launching a script while an Internet user visits a website in order to use his processor and generate cryptomonnaise.
It would therefore seem that crytpojacking offers a new opportunity for Web companies to generate cash without their visitors’ knowledge….
More than 200 of the 1000 most visited websites in the world are already practicing cryptojacking despite the emergence of this practice.
It should be noted that mined cryptomonnaise does not yet concern Bitcoin, this virtual currency requiring high-performance equipment in order to generate it.
Top 4: Microsoft boycotts passwords.
One for the email address, one for the bank accounts, one for Amazon, one for La Redoute….. You see where I’m going with this, don’t you? And the list can be extremely long, so you’re tired of all these passwords?
Well Microsoft has decided to focus now on digital, facial recognition or a simple PIN code with its application for Authenticator connection companies with Azure AD identity service support. This solution will make it easier to access applications.
Happy October to all:)
