Privacy and security are something that all browser manufacturers like to brag about in relation to their products, with Google and Microsoft being no different to others in this regard. But if you are making use of the Enhanced Spellcheck in Chrome or Microsoft Editor in Edge, some highly sensitive information can be sent to the two software giants.
In a blog post, the team of security researchers explains: “Some of the largest websites in the world have exposure to sending Google and Microsoft sensitive user PII, including username, email, and passwords, when users are logging in or filling out forms. An even more significant concern for companies is the exposure this presents to the company’s enterprise credentials to internal assets like databases and cloud infrastructure”.
There is the additional warning:
If you click on ‘show password’, the enhanced spellcheck even sends your password, essentially Spell-Jacking your data.
The issue is known to affect a number of big-name websites and services, including Office 365, Alibaba Cloud Service and Google Cloud Secret Manager. LastPass and AWS Secrets Manager were also found to be impacted, but these companies have now implemented mitigations.
Josh Summitt, the co-founder and CTO of otto-js, discovered the security issue when testing the company’s script behaviors detection. He says:
If ‘show password’ is enabled, the feature even sends your password to their third-party servers. While researching for data leaks in different browsers, we found a combination of features that, once enabled,

A few days ago we announced that the latest version of Kodi 20 ‘Nexus’ was available to download, but there was no word at the time from the Kodi Foundation on exactly what the changes were.
Now the team has released a full changelog, and as you’d expect from a big milestone, there’s a lot of changes and fixes.

This allows, for example, two instances of a PVR addon (e.g. PVR.HTS) to run using different backend provider instances. The usage of this will require updates from the various binary addons that will start to happen, so if you are interested in helping your favourite PVR addon to implement this, check out the above PVR.HTS PR, as well as the following PVR.Demo PR
Duplicate Files Search & Link will search all duplicate file contents regardless of the file name (an accurate byte-to-byte comparison is used). It will then permit you to delete the found duplicate files or move them to another location and replace duplicates with NTFS hard links or symbolic links.
Duplicate Files Search & Link’s main difference compared to other similar applications is its ability to operate NTFS links. An NTFS hard link is the file system representation of a file by which more than one path can refer to a single file in the same volume. NTFS hard links allow several files to share the same space on the disk (the same file). For example, several applications can use NTFS links to the same library version instead of using different library files. If several hard links point to one file, deleting any hard links doesn’t cause the deletion of the file and frees disk space until the last hard link to the file is deleted.
Duplicate Files Search & Link Features:

Last month, LastPass suffered a cyberattack and the company shared some details about what had happened shortly afterwards. Now, having conducted further investigations, more information has been revealed including the fact that the attacker had access to the LastPass development environment for four days.
The company concedes that it is not clear how the attacker was able to gain access but says: “the threat actor utilized their persistent access to impersonate the developer once the developer had successfully authenticated using multi-factor authentication”. LastPass has also revealed the impact of the four-day security incident in the name of providing “transparency and peace-of-mind to [its] consumer and business communities”.
In an update to the blog post from the end of August, LastPass CEO Karim Toubba says: ” We have completed the investigation and forensics process in partnership with Mandiant. Our investigation revealed that the threat actor’s activity was limited to a four-day period in August 2022. During this timeframe, the LastPass security team detected the threat actor’s activity and then contained the incident. There is no evidence of any threat actor activity beyond the established timeline. We can also confirm that there is no evidence that this incident involved any access to customer data or encrypted password vaults”.
Our investigation determined that the threat actor gained access to the Development environment using a developer’s compromised endpoint. While the method used for the initial endpoint compromise is inconclusive, the threat actor utilized their persistent access to impersonate the developer once the developer had successfully authenticated using multi-factor authentication.
Although the threat actor was able to access the Development environment, our system design and controls prevented the threat actor from accessing any customer data or encrypted password vaults.
While it is clearly good news to hear that customer data can
One of the most powerful features is the ability to block any program, dialog window, or popup box based on keywords applied to the window title. This method enables blocking any program or utility regardless of file nameformat or folder location and no matter how it’s launched. This is useful for disabling system utilities that may not be reliably blocked using other methods such as restricting the executable file.
Window title filtering is also useful for blocking specific webpages at sites like YouTube, without blocking the whole site, where there’s a lot of mixed content and where the URL is not indicative of the content.
The program is rock solid, no bugs, I’ve never had it crash after several months of daily (always on) usage now.
The internet filter enables blocking EVERYTHING EXCEPT trusted sites, exactly what I want. Both the window and URL filters allow wildcards. The URL filter is insensitive to prefixes (http, https, wwww, etc) so you don’t need to worry about URL formats.
A long (80 character) password is great if you want to use WinLock to discourage yourself from going to time-wasting websites.
A system setting prevents WinLock’s background process from being killed with Task Manager, or Task Manager can be blocked completely.
The only feature I wish WinLock had is the ability to block pc usage during a certain time period, not worth deducting a star.
clean your computer and protect your privacy
Clean Space can help you recover disk space by removing unnecessary and temporary files, and protect your privacy by deleting common traces that reveal your past computer activities.
The program clean various Windows traces (histories, caches, app usage etc.), browser tracks for all popular browsers, Apples and iTunes tracks, as well as numerous application specific data.
When you first start Clean Space, it will analyze your computer and present you with the overall number of bytes that can be cleaned. You can go into details and review all items by category and then proceed with the cleaning. The program only deletes unnecessary and temporary files, so you don’t have to worry that it will remove any important data. However, you do have the option to uncheck any category to prevent the items from being deleted (e.g.if you want to keep your browser history).
Other features include an option for secure deletion, cookies to keep, and more.
A Pro version is available that offers some additional features, which are unavailable in the free version.

The first ransomware appeared in 1989. It was distributed via floppy disks; its encryption could be easily reversed, and the ransom of $189 was to be paid to a PO box in Panama. Since those humble beginnings, ransomware has evolved into the massive international cybercrime it is today, that causes billions in damage to organizations big or small.
As new successful attacks are reported daily, it seems that the defenses against the ever more sophisticated attack vectors are lagging the attackers. As many organizations continue to struggle to defend themselves against ransomware, it is worth looking at the currently available technologies and how effective they are in combating it.
IT-Security cannot guarantee the defense against ransomware
Obviously, the best ransomware attack would be the one that does not even reach the network. Security vendors are working continuously to keep pace with the attackers but have no definitive recipe against the whack-a-mole of new security threats like APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats) and Zero Day Exploits, let alone the fact that human insiders still pose one of the biggest risks to organizations’ networks. IDC recently revealed in its The State of Ransomware and Disaster Preparedness: 2022 survey that 93 percent of organizations suffered a data-related business disruption during the past 12 months, and 67.8 percent of respondents experienced four or more such disruptions.
IT-Security, generally the first line of defense, cannot defend against all attacks and cannot guarantee 100 percent security. As a result, all organizations need to plan for the worst case of a successful attack on their network, which is not any more just an ‘if’ or a ‘when’ but more a ‘how often’.
Backups do not have the capability to prevent data loss or downtime
The chances that an organization will sooner or later be victim of a successful
To get the most out of Clean Space, you can run it in Administrator mode, or the program will notify you and set Administrator mode by default on the first run if you so choose.
After that, the program is straightforward to use. It immediately scans on startup, does so quickly, and returns how many files it can delete. You can also recalculate, for example, if you left the program running and came back later, as more files are probably available to remove now.
A details tab breaks down what is found in each category, including Windows 10, Windows 10 Apps, Media Player, Skype, OneDrive, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and any other apps or browsers you have installed. I don’t see any files in the remove list that could cause problems, but some might want to preserve some files. For example, you can uncheck cookies or address history if you’re going to keep them. In other words, it should be safe to run with the default settings.
All you have to do now is click delete, and you’re ready to go.
Of course, people will always want to know how it compares to CCleaner or Wise Disk Cleaner. CCleaner found 139.6 MB, and Clean Space found 139.8. As you might be aware, Wise Disk Cleaner is much more hardcore than CCleaner, but it’s not for everyone. The beautiful thing about Clean Space is it does a similar job to CCleaner but without all the bloat that has been recently added. It also lacks the registry cleaner and startup manager, but if all you want is to clean junk files, this might be a better choice.
Clean Space is a
Among the many checks it can do, it can monitor any TCP service, ping a host, retrieve an URL, check the available disk space, check the integrity of your files and website, test your SQL servers, NT services, and much more.
It checks network servers at regular intervals and takes pre-defined actions if a device does not respond. It can provide a visual and sound warning, send an e-mail message to a mailbox, pager, or mobile phone, execute external programs, restart NT services, reboot local or remote computers, etc.

As you know, when you delete a file or folder, it’s still possible to recover it, even when you have placed it in the recycle bin and emptied it. Secure File Deleter is explicitly designed to prevent the recovery of those deleted items by replacing the contents with random data or via military-grade cryptography algorithms. You have the choice of an astronomical amount of security algorithms for data destruction. The program can write a combination of ones and zeroes onto each sector of your hard drive or use various other characters rendering the target data useless.
Secure File Deleter uses the following cryptographic security algorithms for file deletion and shredding – DOD_5220.22_M, the Peter Gutman method, GOST_R_50739_95 which is widely used in different security systems in Russia, RCMP_TSSIT_OPS_II, the Schneier Method, German VSITR which is employed by Germany security systems as well as in other EU countries. It also uses the British standard HMG_Infosec_Standard_5, US Army AR380_19, US Air Force 5020, cryptographic pseudo-random number generator CPRNG, and random characters written to random places of the file.
Secure File Deleter Features:

You also can manage your video parameters by selecting the video codec, adjusting the frame rate, and choosing the overall quality. You also have adjustment options for audio like bitrate selection, codec, and sample rates.
The US justice department wants to have its say on Apple’s antitrust tussle with Epic Games, which is due to be heard on appeal next month—a year after a Californian court ruled largely in favor of the iPhone maker.
On Friday, the appeals court granted the department the right to send a representative to the hearing scheduled for October 21, where both sides are expected to make their case again.
In 2021 a California judge ruled against Fortnite-maker Epic, which had accused Apple of acting like a monopoly in its shop for digital goods or services.
But the judge also barred Apple from prohibiting developers from including in their apps “external links or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms.”
Apple can still mandate that its payment systems is used for in-app transactions.
Both sides are appealing.
Earlier this year the justice department asked for time at the appeal hearing to air concerns about the trial judge’s interpretation of antitrust law at issue in the case.
“The district court committed several legal errors that could imperil effective antitrust enforcement, especially in the digital economy,” justice department lawyers argued in their brief.
Justice officials have been investigating whether Apple and other tech giants are abusing their market clout with anti-competitive practices.
Attorneys for Apple, Epic and the justice department will all speak to the appeals court, which will also consider their written arguments.
