Gigantisk kryptokapnings-attack avvärjd av Microsoft

I tisdags lyckades Microsoft stoppa ett stort cyberangrepp där 400 000 Windowsanvändare var nära att infekteras med kryptokapare. Det skriver Bleeping Computer. Kryptokaparna skulle tryckas ut till datorer som var infekterade med Dofoil, ett program som används för att distribuera ut annan skadlig kod (också känt som Smoke Loader).
Men Windows Defender, det inbyggda säkerhetsprogrammet i Windows, upptäckte det hela i tid.

Thank you to all of the inspiring women I work with at Apple, and to every woman who fights for equality.

Video: The Kiosk

For years now, the kiosk has been Olga‘s little home simply because her sweet tooth and monotonous life has made her bigger than the exit.
To distract herself, she reads travel magazines and dreams of being far away. An absurd incident starts the beginning of her journey.

Trump kan inte räkna

Donald Trump kräver att Kina ska göra något handelsunderskottet och kräver “One Billion Dollar reduction”. Ett krav som förbryllad ekonomer och experter eftersom det motsvarar 0.3 procent av underskottet.

Wall Street Journal konstaterar att inlägget på Twitter missade med 99 miljarder dollar.

BEIJING—The Trump administration is asking Beijing for a plan to cut the annual U.S. trade deficit with China by $100 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.
President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that Washington had asked Beijing for a $1 billion reduction—less than 0.3% of the countries’ annual trade gap or around one day’s worth of the trade imbalance. His tweet was off by $99 billion.



 

Islanders fans har tröttnat på Snow

New York Islanders fans har tröttnat på GM Garth Snow och har köpt billboards med texten “Snow must go” och nu bjuder man även till fest för att fira förlust nummer 400 med Snow vid rodret,

Garth Snow har varit GM sedan 2006 och på tio säsonger så har Islanders bara tagit sig till slutspel tre gånger.


Fansen har samlat in 50 000 och köpt två stora billboards för att visa sitt missnöje sedan det ser ut som att Islanders missar slutspel – igen.

Fest


Fansen har bjudit in Snow men det är oklart om Islanders GM kommer att dyka upp på festen.
Islanders har femton matcher kvar att spela och mycket talar före att laget missar slutspel – igen.
