  1. Today, I’m excited to share more detail on the ability to reset a Windows 10 PC by downloading a new image from the cloud instead of using the existing Windows files stored on the machine. We’ve heard your feedback about some of the unsuccessful attempts to use Reset this PC and we’ve been working on new features to make this process more reliable and...

  2. A recent Chrome update has been causing issues for some. For the past few days, video editors have been panicking as a data corruption issue struck their Macs (typically 2013 Mac Pros), preventing them from rebooting their systems properly. But what was the cause? Their Avid Media Composer editing suite? MacOS itself? No — it turns out their browser was likely to blame. Google...

  3. Like a cat, the Test Pilot program has had many lives. It originally started as an Add-on before we relaunched it three years ago. Then in January, we announced that we were evolving our culture of experimentation, and as a result we closed the Test Pilot program to give us time to further explore what was next. We learned a lot from the Test... Read more about Firefox Private Network test pilot program on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  4. Researchers found a clicker Trojan bundled with over 33 apps distributed through the Google Play Store and downloaded by Android users over 100 million times. The malware was designed as a malicious module added to seemingly harmless applications such as audio players, barcode scanners, dictionaries, and a host of other various types of ordinary software most people would install on their Android devices. These... Read more about Clicker trojan found in Android apps with over 100M installs on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  5. Microsoft and best antivirus aren’t usually written in the same sentence, but they’re going to have to be following the latest antivirus test results. As Softpedia reports, the independent IT security institute AV-TEST spent May and June continuously evaluating 20 home user security products using their default settings to see which offered the best protection. Only four of those products achieved a top score,... Read more about Windows Defender achieves best antivirus 2019 on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  6. Privacy has been a renewed focus with Apple’s next operating system update. One new iOS 13 privacy feature could have sweeping consequences for messaging and online call apps. In iOS 13, Apple will not allow apps to run voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) in the background when the programs are not actively in use. Many apps that offer VoIP services currently run in the background,... Read more about iOS 13 privacy features means overhaul for Facebook apps on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  7. Microsoft last month pushed a silent update that patched a processor side channel data leak in all CPUs Intel has introduced since 2012, researchers who discovered the flaw said Tuesday. The vulnerability—discovered and privately reported to Intel 12 months ago—resided in every CPU Intel has introduced since at least its Ivy Bridge line of processors and possibly earlier, a researcher from security firm Bitdefender...

  8. As of June 30, 2019, Backblaze reports the 2019 best hard drives available. They had 110,640 spinning hard drives in our ever-expanding cloud storage ecosystem. Of that number, there were 1,980 boot drives and 108,660 data drives. This review looks at the Q2 2019 and lifetime hard drive failure rates of the data drive models currently in operation in our data centers. We’ll also...

  9. In a future update, you’ll see Windows Defender rebranded to Microsoft Defender to indicate that it now part of a cross platform family of products. This includes enterprise products, which offer solutions for multiple OS platforms. Historically, Microsoft’s consumer antivirus product has been called Windows Defender. With the release of their enterprise security offerings called Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and Microsoft Defender...

  10. You might be perturbed if somebody calls your business an “extortion racket” or your sales pitch a “ransom note”, or says you have “poor ad blocking practices.” But Eyeo Chief Executive Till Faida, leader of the widely used Adblock Plus browser extension, is unruffled. The way he sees it, he’s just trying to rescue online advertising and the websites that rely on it. The... Read more about Adblock Plus has poor ad blocking practices on Lunarsoft.

  11. At this week’s Microsoft Inspire conference in Las Vegas, the company announced some impressive improvements to my new favorite browser, Chromium Edge. I’ve become a huge fan of the new Chromium version of the Microsoft Edge browser, which is still in beta test. The reason is that I really missed the one browser-does-it-all aspect of old Internet Explorer; before this new browser, I was... Read more about Chromium Edge is enterprise ready on Lunarsoft.

  12. The first ever malware strain seen that abuses DNS over HTTPS (DoH) protocol has been discovered by Netlab. Security researchers from Netlab, a network threat hunting unit of Chinese cyber-security giant Qihoo 360 made this discovery. The malware, named Godlua, was detailed in a report published on Monday by the company’s researchers. According to the Netlab team, Godlua is a malware strain written in...

  13. Periodic password changes are likely to do more harm than good. In a largely overlooked post published late last month, Microsoft said it was removing periodic password changes from the security baseline settings it recommends for customers and auditors. After decades of Microsoft recommending passwords be changed regularly, Microsoft employee Aaron Margosis said the requirement is an “ancient and obsolete mitigation of very low...

  14. Your web browser should never act as surveillance software. Unfortunately Google Chrome’s surveillance methods make it highly insecure by allowing trackers to follow you around the web. Over a recent week of Web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends. Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad... Read more about Chrome behaves like surveillance software, switch to Firefox on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  15. Samsung’s official Twitter account posted that scanning for ‘malware viruses’ on is important to keep it running smoothly. “This also is true for your QLED TV if it’s connected to Wi-Fi!” it added. The tweet included a video showing how to perform this process on your Samsung SmartTV, which involves going to General Settings > System Manager > Smart Security > Scan. Scanning your...
