Microsoft Warns Windows 10 Has An Expensive Problem

Nov 09, 2018 - 8:36 PM - by Reverend
Windows 10’s problems are growing. Despite the introduction of new monthly charges, the number of high profile incidents with recent updates (including one which deletes users’ personal data) is off the charts. And now Microsoft has warned there is another serious problem...

Spotted by The Register, Microsoft’s activation servers have started accidentally downgrading expensive Windows 10 Pro systems into cheaper Windows 10 Home PCs, then invalidating their licences. Needless to say, that's a nasty financial hit (Home is $119, Pro is $199) and affected users are furious.

“After updating to Insider Build 18277 my Windows 10 digital license became invalid. I don't understand!...No hardware changes, nothing has changed. I don't know what to do,” tweeted one affected user.

“One of our three-year-old Lenovo Yogas just decided to throw 0xC004C003 Windows activation error. Windows diagnostic tool says the machine has Windows 10 Home license...Dumbasses” tweeted another.

And it’s not just upgraders being affected. Problems with automated Windows 10 Home downgrades are being reported with fresh installs on different Windows Pro versions as well.

“Same issue on Dell computers running Windows 10 Pro 1803 that we just bought. Need to deploy to clients but they won't activate,” explained another user on Reddit.

On its official Answers page, Microsoft warns there is a “temporary issue” with the company’s activation server but has not disclosed any further details. As for users calling Microsoft’s call centres, the response is to simply wait for a fix.

Private messages from 81,000 Facebook accounts were put up for sale by hackers

Nov 02, 2018 - 9:26 PM - by Reverend
A hacker group has allegedly obtained private messages from 81,000 Facebook accounts — possibly many more — and at one point sold access to the database for 10 cents per account, the BBC reported Friday.

According to the report, many of these accounts are based in Ukraine and Russia, though some are from other countries, including the U.S., the UK and Brazil. At one point, hackers have put up an ad offering access to the data at 10 cents per account, but that ad has been taken offline.

The hackers told the BBC that they actually had details from 120 million accounts, though BBC asked cybersecurity company Digital Shadows to browse through the sample of data posted online and verify this number, and they were only able to find private messages in more than 81,000 accounts. A further 176,000 accounts also contained personal data such as phone numbers and email addresses, though these might've been obtained without actually hacking the accounts, by scraping the information from users who chose not to make it private.

The data trove has surfaced shortly after Facebook confirmed that 29 million users had their accounts accessed by hackers. However, this new stolen data appears to have been obtained through malicious browser add-ons.

Facebook, for one, claims its systems have not been breached, according to the report. And the hackers themselves, when contacted by the BBC, said the data had nothing to with the recent security breach or the data stemming from the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

“Based on our investigation so far, we believe this information was obtained through malicious browser extensions installed off of Facebook," Guy Rosen, VP of Product Management at Facebook, told Mashable via e-mail.

"We have contacted browser makers to ensure that known malicious extensions are no longer available to download in their stores and to share information that could... [Read More]

Samsung's foldable phone may go public next week

Nov 02, 2018 - 9:23 PM - by Reverend
While Samsung hinted in September that it may discuss its foldable phone project at its developer conference, which begins Nov. 7, a new report reaffirms we may soon be getting more details.

The electronics giant next week will demonstrate features of the tablet-sized device, including how it'll take advantage of extra screen real estate and the simultaneous use of three apps, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company's been working with YouTube and Netflix on ways to best deliver content on the foldable phone, unnamed sources told the Journal.

Samsung has previously said that the folding phone will use a foldable screen, not just a display hinge like the one in this odd prototype. The latest reports indicate it may arrive in early 2019. If Samsung does present the phone to developers next week, an early 2019 launch -- possibly at Mobile World Congress -- seems likely.
