The Internet can make you smarter.

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Though it may not always feel like it, the Internet is actually making us smarter, at least according to a new survey of scientists, business leaders, and technology developers.

A collection of 900 experts interviewed for the Pew Internet report The Future of the Internet IV, released last Friday, were asked their views on how the Internet is affecting us–now and in another 10 years. Though most felt that the Internet can and would improve our reading, writing, and overall grasp of knowledge, some were reluctant to jump on that bandwagon.

“Three out of four experts said our use of the Internet enhances and augments human intelligence, and two-thirds said use of the Internet has improved reading, writing, and rendering of knowledge,” said Janna Anderson, study co-author and director of the Imagining the Internet Center, in a statement. “There are still many people, however, who are critics of the impact of Google, Wikipedia, and other online tools.”

A vulnerability in Microsoft GDI+ may allow remote code execution. The vulnerability exists in the way GDI+ allocates buffer size when handling WMF image files. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted WMF image file or browses to a Web site that contains specially crafted content. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow an attacker to take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. RescueTech can make sure you have the appropriate patches and updates to protect your system.

Microsoft’s Free AntiVirus Software

Friday, October 16th, 2009

Microsoft registered more than 1.5 million downloads of its free antivirus software in the week after it shipped.

Though XP is not the most popular platform for Security Essentials, it’s where the software is doing the most work. Microsoft counted 4 million total malware detections on more than 500,000 machines during the one-week period; 52 percent of them were on XP machines. Vista was next, with 32 percent of detections, followed by Windows 7, with 16 percent. “This follows our usual observed trend of seeing less malware on newer OSes and service packs,” Microsoft said.
