Galaxy-Z-Flip-3-Samsung

In recent days, specs for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 have been leaking online. It seems the 4th generation will be more of an incremental upgrade over the 3rd Gen smartphone rather than a complete overhaul. In the latest leak, those specs are showing up again, suggesting they might be the real deal.

An incremental update makes sense for the Galaxy X Flip 4. Samsung is coming off the third generation, which was a re-imagining of the device. While the first two generations re-invented the clamshell flip phone for the smartphone market, they also had plenty of issues… weak screens and a lack of outside display among them.

The X Flip 3 addressed those problems and felt much more like a complete vision of a modern flip phone. With the 4th generation, it seems Samsung is focusing on refining that success rather than trying to switch things up again.

According to notable leakster Yogesh Brar, Z Flip 4 has a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display on the inside. This screen has a 120Hz refresh rate. On the outside, the external display will be there again, this time spanning 2.1-inches.

Under the hood, Samsung is using Qualcomm’s latest generation Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 CPU with 8GB of RAM. Storage will be available in 128GB and 256GB configurations. Camera duties are handled by two 12MP lenses as the main camera and a 10MP on the outside handling selfies. Other specs include a 3,700 mAh battery, and wireless fast charging for 10W.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Specifications:

  • Main: 6.7″ FHD+ sAMOLED, 120Hz
  • Outer: 2.1″ sAMOLED
  • Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128/256GB storage
  • Main Cam: 12MP + 12MP (UW)
  • Inner Cam: 10MP
  • Android 12, OneUI 4
  • 3,700mAh battery
  • Fast charging 25W wired, 10W wireless

Microsoft Announces the Surface Laptop Go 2

Surface-Laptop-Go-2-696×652

Surface-Laptop-Go-2

Just yesterday I reported on a leak of Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go 2 via a Korean retailer. It was clear such a leak meant the device was close to launching. I also speculated that the announcement would be small as this is an entry-level product. Well, both those points were true as Microsoft has today announced the Laptop Go 2 with a simple press release.

Much of the information that has been leaking online recently was accurate. In terms of design, this is mostly the same aesthetic as the original model that arrived two years ago. That means the same 12.4-inch touch display with the 3:2 aspect ratio Microsoft is known for. The resolution on the panel is 1536 x 1024.

Measurements are mostly the same at 10.95 x 8.12 x 0.62 inches and a weight of 2.5 points. As the entry-level model of the Surface Laptop range, the Go 2 has a price of $599.99.The Surface Laptop Go 2 will get a new 11th-gen Intel processor, specifically the i5 1135G7. Of course, the original Surface Laptop Go had a 10th-gen CPU when it launched in 2020.

More Spec

Regarding specs, the new laptop has an 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU and starts at 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD storage. Customers can configure the Laptop Go 2 up to 16GB of RAM and a 256GB drive.

Elsewhere, battery life is getting a boost up to 13.5 hours (from 13 hours), while color options are green/gray “sage” color, which joins the preexisting blue, sandstone, and platinum options. It is also worth noting the Surface Laptop Go 2 ships with Windows 11.

Tip of the day: The Windows Clipboard history feature provides functionality across devices, space, and time, letting you copy on one computer and paste the text days later on a different PC. All of it is possible via the Windows 10 clipboard manager, which lets you view, delete, pin, and clear clipboard history at will.

Microsoft Issues Workaround For “One Click” Vulnerability

download – 2022-06-02T124829.642

Cyber-Security-Lock-Pixabay

Microsoft Security is warning users of a zero-day vulnerability that was initially found in April. Known as “One Click” the flaw has already been exploited through attacks against organizations. Microsoft is now issuing a workaround to help users avoid the bug.

The vulnerability is described as a remote control execution (RCE) bug which is tracking as CVE-2022-3019. This flaw is found in the Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT). Yes, this is a service that gathers information about bugs and reports them to Microsoft Support, which makes this flaw about as ironic as its gets.

If a threat actor successfully exploits the vulnerability, they can change data, delete files, view information, create new accounts, install programs, and more.

“A remote code execution vulnerability exists when MSDT is called using the URL protocol from a calling application such as Word,” the company says in its guidance on the Microsoft Security Response Center. “An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability can run arbitrary code with the privileges of the calling application.”

The One-Click vulnerability was discovered by researchers with the Shadow Chaser Group. That was back in April 12, which means the flaw has been left unfixed for over six weeks. Attackers have already used an exploit of the bug to attack users in Russia.

Workaround

At first, Microsoft did not believe the vulnerability was a problem. However, the company has since changed its stance and is urging customers to follow its workaround. At least until Microsoft is able to issue a fix.

Microsoft Security tells users to turn off the MSDT URL, which will stop the flaw from happening. Specifically, disabling the URL “prevents troubleshooters being launched as links including links throughout the operating system”.

This can be done by following these steps:

Run “: Command Prompt as Administrator“;

Back up the registry key through the command “reg export HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ms-must filename

execute the command “reg delete HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ms-must /f”.

“Troubleshooters can still be accessed using the Get Help application and in system settings as other or additional troubleshooters,” the company adds.

Tip of the day: The Windows Clipboard history feature provides functionality across devices, space, and time, letting you copy on one computer and paste the text days later on a different PC. All of it is possible via the Windows 10 clipboard manager, which lets you view, delete, pin, and clear clipboard history at will.

Microsoft: Android Apps with High-Severity Vulnerabilities Have Been Downloaded Millions of Times

download – 2022-05-31T152304.722

Android Security Flickr Reuse

Microsoft Security has written a lengthy post on high-severity vulnerabilities found in a mce Systems mobile framework. The company points out that numerous major mobile service providers use this framework within their Android System apps that come pre-installed on devices.

In other words, these devices are at risk of local or remote attacks. Microsoft Security says the apps have millions of downloads as well as being pre-installed. Like all inbox apps, the vulnerable applications have more privileges than normal, allowing attackers to potentially reach system configuration.

It is worth noting that Microsoft says every app has been fixed by the relevant developer. So, if you are on the latest version, you are safe. As always, the risk here is with users who have not updated and are still running a vulnerable version.

As with most pre-installed apps on Android, the vulnerable applications cannot be fully removed. In fact, some cannot even be entirely disabled. It is one of the worst parts of using the OS, which is why OEMs that keep bloatware to a minimum (not you, Samsung) win praise.

Fixes

Even so, the mobile framework apps are often important but once on the system pre-installed the only way to remove them is through root access. Microsoft says it worked directly with mce Systems to identify the issues on the framework, which mobile service providers were affected, and to issue fixes.

According to Microsoft, this quick action and collaboration is fundamental to success in preventing cyberattacks:

“Collaboration among security researchers, software vendors, and the security community is important to continuously improve defenses for the larger ecosystem. As the threat and computing landscape continues to evolve, vulnerability discoveries, coordinated response, and other forms of threat intelligence sharing are paramount to protecting customers against present and future threats, regardless of the platform or device they are using.”

You can read all the details of Microsoft’s discovery and risk the vulnerabilities posed in the source’s complete blog post.

Tip of the day: It’s a good idea to backup your computer on a regular basis, and the most fool-proof way is to manually create a disk image and save it to an external hard drive.

Microsoft Edge to Pull Data from Chrome on Every Launch

Microsoft-wants-to-import-your-chrome-data-every-time-you-get-into-Edge

Import-Data-Microsoft-Edge-Canary

If you use a browser – such as Google’s Chrome – and step into another like Microsoft Edge, the new non-default (in this case Edge) will ask if you want to import data. This is a built-in tool that makes swapping to a new default browser easier. Microsoft is now aiming to add this feature to Edge every time the browser launches.

Normally Edge will offer a prompt to import data from another browser during the initial launch. This allows you to easily take your passwords, bookmarks, open tabs, history and other information across browsers. However, there is currently no way to granularly choose which information to take.

Microsoft is expanding on this feature to make it more flexible, starting with the Microsoft Edge 104 Canary release. Specifically, there are new settings where users can now choose what data Edge should bring along.

Furthermore, Edge will now grab your data from Chrome every time it launches and automatically. That should make usage between the two browsers more seamless.

Details

This new import tool is available for users with a Microsoft Edge profile via settings and the new Import browser data > Import browser data on each launch > Turn on. With the feature enabled, choose your Chrome profile and select which items/categories you want to import.

Users on Edge Canary can import passwords, payment data, cookies, open tabs, browsing history, and passwords. Bookmarks/favorites and extensions are currently not available, although Microsoft says they will add them in the future.

This is a Canary build so it is still early days for this tool and it will be a few months before it comes to a launch-ready version of Edge. In fact, the new data drop tool is only available to select Canary users, with a wider rollout coming later.

Report: Oppo Could Enter the Foldable Smartphone Market as Early as This Year

Oppo-Foldable-Smartphone-will-be-called-Oppo-Find-N-5G-1

Oppo-Smartphones-Official

Earlier this month, reports showed that Oppo was entering the foldable smartphone market. However, those same reports suggested the device is only now entering development, suggesting a launch is someway off. It now seems Oppo is making fantastic progress and is aiming to launch the handset by the end of the year.

The smartphone in question is said to be foldable in the vein of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip series. In other words, a clamshell phone that opens and closes with the main screen on the inside. Often-accurate leaker Mukul Sharma says Oppo has already internally tested the device and will launch before the close of 2022.

While Oppo still flies under the radar for many customers, it is the fourth biggest smartphone manufacturer. That is in terms of both sales and market share, according to Counterpoint. Oppos is behind only Samsung, Apple, and Xiaomi.

Oppo is also known for going all-out when launching a new flagship-level device. Expect the company’s foldable to have all the latest specs and probably the kitchen sink as well.

Folding Phone

Alongside the flip-style device, there are rumors Oppo is also working on a full book-style foldable like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold. This device is also having internal testing for a launch across Europe and Asia. This second device could also make its debut this year.

As mentioned, Oppo will likely provide top specs and design, while also undercutting Samsung on price. Reports point to the clamshell flip Oppo phone costing just $756 or €718. Samsung’s Galaxy X Flip 3 retails for $1000.

Microsoft’s One Outlook Launches in Preview for Office Insiders

download – 2022-05-19T135343.260

Microsoft-Loop-One-Outlook-Email

Earlier this month, new leaks showed Microsoft’s upcoming One Outlook email client, which was developed a Project Monarch. At the time, I wrote that it was likely the app would arrive soon. Well, Microsoft is now rolling out One Outlook for Windows to the Beta Channel on the Office Insider Program.

Since May 17, the new app is available to customers with Microsoft 365 or Office 365 business and education accounts on the Beta Channel. Microsoft says current testers are paying customers. Other requirements include having their default email sending account as classic Outlook on Windows and are part of the Beta channel.

Alongside the preview release, Microsoft is announcing a new feature known as Microsoft Loop:

“With Microsoft Loop components everyone can edit and share their thoughts while staying in the flow of their work and the app they are using, Outlook or Teams –  Loop components can be copied and pasted across Outlook emails and Teams chats and they always stay in sync so everyone can stay up to date wherever and whenever they work.”

This release just about squeezes into Microsoft’s promise to launch the app during spring 2022. Microsoft initially planned a 2021 launch but reports earlier this year pointed to a spring 2022 release.

New Outlook

One Outlook takes its inspiration from the Outlook web version, matching it closely in terms of design and functionality.

One Outlook is a unified email experience, it will gather the various versions of the services from across platforms into a single app. For example, it will replace the Win32 and UWP apps on Windows 10, Outlook Web Access, and the macOS version. It will also be hosted as Outlook for Web on browsers.

Tip of the day: After years of hefting a laptop around, you inevitably build up a menagerie of Wi-Fi networks. For the most part, they’ll sit on your PC, hardly used, but at times a change in configuration can make it difficult to connect to a network your computer already remembers. At this point, it can be beneficial to make Windows forget a Wi-Fi network and delete its network profile.

Microsoft Warns Of “Cryware” Malware Targeting Crypt Wallets

download – 2022-05-19T134431.076

Cryptocurrency-Pixabay

ware will become a frequent concern as more people start using “hot wallets”.

As more people look to increase they cryptocurrency investments in hot wallets, cybercrooks will look to target them. Microsoft says cryware is the term it gives the malware category (crypto + malware = cryware).

Crypto markets are increasingly volatile and info-stealing malware will seek to gain access to passwords and private keys for hot wallets. If you are unfamiliar with hot wallets, they store cryptocurrency online. The alternative is offline storage, which is a cold wallet.

“Cryware are information stealers that collect and exfiltrate data directly from non-custodial cryptocurrency wallets, also known as hot wallets. Because hot wallets, unlike custodial wallets, are stored locally on a device and provide easier access to cryptographic keys needed to perform transactions, more and more threats are targeting them,” Microsoft details in a blogpost.

Attacks

Of course, malware looking to steal information for cryptocurrency wallets is nothing new. However, cryware marks a change where attackers are ramping up their efforts and seeking to steal crypto and transfer it into their wallets.

Microsoft explains how such attacks are irreversible because of the nature of crypto:

“Unlike credit cards and other financial transactions, there are currently no available mechanisms that could help reverse fraudulent cryptocurrency transactions or protect users from such,” Microsoft explains.

Microsoft security explains how cryware works and details a specific attack:

“Mars Stealer is a notable cryware that steals data from web wallets, desktop wallets, password managers, and browser files. The snippet below was taken from a section of Mars Stealer code aimed to locate wallets installed on a system and steal their sensitive files,” says Microsoft.

Microsoft Azure to Help Wayve Scale Its Deep Learning Products

download – 2022-05-19T104236.693

Wayve-Autonomous-Vehicle-London-Streets

Microsoft is teaming with London-based Wayve for a collaboration that will see the company invest in the development of deep learning technologies for autonomous vehicles (AVs). In return, Wayve will use Microsoft Azure across its services.

By partnering with Microsoft, Wayve will use Microsoft cloud technologies to propel its supercomputing that powers its AI models. Microsoft is investing as part of Wayve’s $200 million Series B round. However, the companies have been working together since 2020 when Wayve first selected Azure as its preferred cloud platform.

Now, the companies plan to leverage Wayve’s AI expertise and deep learning models to train Microsoft’s AI. As for Azure, it will provide Microsoft’s resources and engineering experience across large-scale projects.

Mark Russinovich, CTO, Azure at Microsoft said: “Supercomputing capabilities are key to processing the immense amount of data required for the simulation, validation, and training of AI models that enable safe and secure autonomous driving. Wayve is combining its expertise in deep learning-based autonomous vehicle systems with Microsoft Azure computing power to bring self-driving transportation experiences to more people and organizations faster.”

Powering Supercomputers

Wayve is going to commercialize its product at some point. The company says it will continue to use Azure as its chosen cloud platform. During commercial piloting of its technology, supercomputers will take the deep learning models necessary for commercialization to the next level.

Microsoft Azure will underpin the cloud infrastructure needed to power these supercomputers.

Alex Kendall, CEO of Wayve said: “Joining forces with Microsoft to design the supercomputing infrastructure needed to accelerate deep learning for autonomous mobility is an opportunity that we are honoured to lead. Deep learning systems thrive on data, and we’ve put an immense amount of effort into understanding what it takes to get these systems on the road. We are excited by the opportunities that this collaboration will create as we push deep learning to new levels of scale.”

Valve Steam Monopolization Lawsuit to Go Ahead

Apple-Studio-Display-2022

steam flickr BagoGames

A lawsuit that alleges Valve monopolizes the PC gaming market is gathering pace and will go ahead. U.S. District Court Judge John C. Coughenour – who twice found in favor of Valve during preliminary hearings – is still allowing the lawsuit to happen, albeit an amended version of the filing.

Independent PC game creator Wolfire Games is leading the class action against Valve. The company believes Valve uses its Steam platform to dominate the PC game market with unfair practices. Bloombeg Law reports Judge Coughenour is allowing a part of the lawsuit to go ahead.

Specifically, the allegations made by Wolfire about Steam driving up the price of games because the platform also takes a 30% commission on sales. Furthermore, the claim is that Valve actively retaliates against companies who offer alternative purchase options outside of Steam. Valve will now face both these allegations before the court.

New Decision

Another claim from Wolfire, that Valve should split Steam into a separate game platform and game store, will not be allowed to progress.

This development is interesting because Coughenour previously dismissed the case in preliminary hearings. He said that there was no evidence that Valve was engaging in anti-competition practices. He said previously Steam “did not need market power to charge a fee well above its cost structure because those brick-and-mortar competitors had a far higher cost structure”.

Of course, just because the lawsuit is moving ahead, it does not mean the allegations will hold up. The case will now proceed with legal teams from Wolfire and Valve arguing their site of the case. We will keep you updated as the lawsuit progresses.
