Kaseya, an IT solutions developer for MSPs and enterprise clients, announced that it had become the victim of a cyberattack on July 2, over the American Independence Day weekend. It appears that attackers have carried out a supply chain ransomware attack by leveraging a vulnerability in Kaseya's VSA software against multiple managed service providers (MSP) -- and their customers. Also: Kaseya issues patch for on-premise customers, SaaS rollout underway According to Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola, less than 0.1% of the company's customers were embroiled in the breach -- but as their clientele includes MSPs, this means that smaller businesses have also been caught up in the incident. Present estimates suggest that 800 to 1500 small to medium-sized companies may have experienced a ransomware compromise through their MSP. The attack is reminiscent of the SolarWinds security fiasco , in which attackers managed to compromise the vendor's software to push a malicious update to … [Read more...] about Updated Kaseya ransomware attack FAQ: What we know now

Sharks will never stop amazing us — from mysterious and massive whale sharks to intimidating and impressive great whites . Even sharks that don't exist anymore, like the mammoth megalodon , never cease to astonish. We know you love sharks just as much as we do, so here are 20 awesome things we have learned about sharks. 1. Some sharks can get really, really old Imagine a shark that was swimming the seas when the Pope excommunicated Martin Luther and the Ming Dynasty was going strong. That might just be the Greenland shark ( Somniosus microcephalus ), an Arctic dweller that can live centuries — perhaps close to 500 years. Researchers reported in 2016 in the journal Science that they had tested the eye tissues of these strange sharks and found that they were centuries old. The method wasn't perfectly precise, so the exact age range came to between 271 and 512 years old. Even at the low end, that makes them the longest-lived animal with a backbone. Little is known about … [Read more...] about 20 times sharks made our jaws drop
Why it matters: As you can probably attest, modern wearables can be slapped on a wrist or slotted in an ear without a problem. But they’re not subtle enough, neither in their design or cost, to be part of everyday items like clothing, milk cartons, food packages, or bandages – Arm’s examples of places where their new "natively flexible" processor might belong. In a new paper published in Nature , Arm researchers explain how they ported a standard 32-bit Arm processor design onto a plastic substrate that they say is bendy. It’s more of a proof-of-concept than a working prototype, but it nevertheless demonstrates some significant firsts. Arm fittingly call their creation "PlasticARM." It uses metal-oxide thin-fin transistor technology (TFT) fabricated on a polyimide substrate. Polyimide is a durable type of thermoplastic that’s mildly flexible. Arm’s team wasn’t willing to put their processor’s flexibility to the test, but I would estimate that it lands somewhere between a … [Read more...] about Arm made a bendable 32-bit processor out of ‘plastic’
Apple has pulled something of a shock by releasing the next version of its Safari browser for Windows as well as the Mac. What's more, it's released it as a Beta trial. The announcement was the 'One More Thing' feature of Steve Jobs' keynote at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. "We think big," said Jobs, before explaining that Apple wants a bigger slice of the browser pie. When he demoed Safari in Windows on stage, Jobs amused the congregation by claiming the experience was "odd." Beta releases are usually the preserve of Google, but old-school companies such as Microsoft, Adobe and Symantec have changed their ways in recent time to release early versions of crucial apps. As with the Mac version, Safari has a built-in RSS reader and supports all the latest Web 2.0 standards. Jobs also reasoned at WWDC that as there have been over 500 million downloads of iTunes for Windows, he reckons Apple can replicate that number with Safari. What's more … [Read more...] about WWDC 07: Apple shocks with Safari for Windows
New screenshots online appear to give a more detailed look at Windows 11 Dark Mode, including Start Menu, Notifications, File Explorer, and more. The screenshots, courtesy of ALumia_Italia on Twitter, purportedly came from a "Microsoft employee who leaks internal stuff for fun" and show the various UI elements of the newly announced operating system. Image 1 of 6 Image 2 of 6 Image 3 of 6 Image 4 of 6 Image 5 of 6 Image 6 of 6 The successor to Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system is still a few months away from general release, so assuming the screenshots are legit (always an open question with Twitter leaks), they may not be representative of the final look of the new OS's UI and Dark Mode theme. Microsoft has confirmed that there will be a Dark Mode in Windows 11, and with its beta release available to Windows Insiders as of today , we'll get a better look at Windows 11 Dark Mode pretty soon.
