Updates Talk / Revo Uninstaller Pro 3.1.9
« on: April 04, 2017, 03:55:40 am »
I really like this program and have been using it for years. Donna turned me on to it and it gets rid of everything your program installs from start to finish.

Revo Uninstaller Pro Portable is the way to go because you can use it on (Unlimited computers).

Hackers have turned autofill into a weapon – a feature originally created with the good intentions of sparing users from tedious, repetitive tasks.

Convenience has a price. When it comes to automatically filling information into browser text boxes, users may be giving away more information than they realize. And that information may end up in the hands of hackers.

Cybercriminals have found ways to exploit the Apple Safari, Microsoft Opera and Google Chrome browsers, as well as plugins such as the LastPass password manager, to capture phone numbers, addresses, credit card details, login credentials and other private information. It’s one of the many web-bases schemes that hackers have concocted to rip off users.

This is a good read although there is no info about Windows IE which can be disable in Internet Options/ Content/AutoComplete Settings.

Microsoft may stop providing security updates to users of Microsoft Windows 7 and 8.1 if they use PCs with the latest processors.

Microsoft seems poised to introduce a controversial and unorthodox new ‘support’ policy that will block security updates for users of Windows 7 and 8.1 if they use PCs with the latest processors.

Computers powered by new processors from AMD, Intel and Qualcomm will be blocked from receiving security updates for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, notes the support document.

Two anonymous researchers, who identified themselves as “my123” and “Slipstream”, recently exposed a serious design flaw in Windows’ Secure Boot that allows people to open locked devices with a golden key. The researchers claim their published findings prove encryption backdoors can be exploited, and that the golden key demands by governments and investigators endangers the security of all users.

Microsoft lists the following Windows versions as affected: Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 10 build 1511 (both 32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 Server Core Installation.
