Why is Microsoft updating Windows PCs for a security bug on the server?

When Microsoft released a critical update for multiple versions of Windows Server this month, it also pushed out a fix for several releases of the Windows client OS, including even the technical preview for Windows 10.

It was critical to get the patch out for Windows Server: An exploit affecting Windows Server 2008 R2 and earlier versions has already been detected, and Windows Server 2012 and later releases are vulnerable to a related but more difficult attack.

But the vulnerability isnt present in the desktop versions of Windows. In Windows Server, the flaw allows attackers to employ the username and password of anyone in an Active Directory domain to get the same system privileges as a domain administrator, using a forged Privilege Attribute Certificate to fool the Kerberos Domain Controller that manages remote access.

Prices for 4K monitors sink below $500

Prices for 4K monitors have dropped below US$500, bringing them within the reach of cost conscious buyers looking to replace 1080p displays.

The prices have been falling steadily from $700 or more earlier this year. 4K monitors are available from Samsung, Sharp, Dell, Asus, Acer, Monoprice and small vendors.

4K gives a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, or four times deeper than conventional 1080p resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Dell is selling its 28 Ultra HD P2815Q monitor for $449.99, down from $699.99 when the product started shipping earlier this year. Newegg is selling 28-inch monitors from AOC and Planar for $499.99.

Reports: EU taking first step towards breaking up Google

Members of the European Parliament are readying a motion calling for the break-up of Google, by separating its search engine functionality from other commercial services, according to news reports.

A draft resolution calling for the break-up should be finalized early next week, with a vote potentially on Thursday, according to a report from The Financial Times. While the European Parliament has no formal power to break up the company, a vote to split Google could put pressure on the European Commission, the EUs executive body.

The motion is backed by several German politicians and by the Parliaments two largest political blocs, the European Peoples Party and the Socialists, according to the newspaper. The Reuters news agency also reported on the plan.

Uber is in advanced-stage damage control mode to prove to the world that it actually cares about your privacy, but its going to be an uphill battle. The good news for you: The end result will be a strict privacy policy crafted by a company so scared of running afoul of regulators and potential users that it will elevate standards for the entire industry.

Ubers public relations crisis, which began with an executive threatening to investigate a journalists private life in retaliation for a critical column, has snowballed into a user privacy debacle that has even Sen. Al Franken raising questions.

US man sentenced for hacking POS systems at Subway

A former Subway franchise owner will spend time in prison for hacking into computerized cash registers he sold to the sandwich restaurant chain and obtaining more than US$40,000 in gift cards.

U.S. District Judge Richard Stearns sentenced Shahin Abdollahi, also known as Sean Holdt, 46, of Lake Elsinore, California, to 18 months in prison. The judge also ordered him to pay more than $34,700 in restitution. Sentencing was Friday in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

Abdollahi pleaded guilty in May to one count of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion and wire fraud and one count of wire fraud.

Abdollahi owned Subway franchises in Southern California, and later operated a California company called POS Doctor, which sold and installed point-of-sale computer systems to Subway franchises around the country, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a press release.

Updated Nexus 9 factory images lead this week's Android device updates roundup

The Nexus 9 is a pretty solid tablet. As part of Googles Nexus program, you can grab the factory images and download them directly, freeing you to tinker away with your device and restore it to its original state if things go haywire.

Google uploaded a new image for its flagship tablet, solving an issue some were having with updating and squashing a few bugs along the way.

Each week we gather up all the major software updates for the biggest devices; phones and tablets on U.S. carriers (and unlocked phones, of course), wearables, and round them all up so you dont miss a thing.

This week in games: Maniac Mansion's legacy, a game that sucks your blood, and insane VR body switching

I played so much Far Cry 4 this week, it's hard to remember there's a real world out here with real people and real news stories.

But there is a real world, and it's utterly insane. This week an artist announced he wants to spend a whole month living in virtual reality, there's a game where you can play as a sentient tree, another game sucks your blood, Telltale's Game of Thrones gets a trailer, and Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick team up for a spiritual successor to the old LucasArts games that made them famous.

FCC chairman gives no timeline for net neutrality decision

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has no public timeline for voting on proposed net neutrality rules, despite pressure from President Barack Obama and some net neutrality advocates.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler declined to give a target date for a net neutrality vote when asked Friday by reporters, saying instead that the agency is working to make sure that any rules would hold up to an almost inevitable court challenge.

The big dogs are going to sue, regardless of what comes out, Wheeler said. We need to make sure that we have sustainable rules. That starts with making sure that we have addressed the multiplicity of issues that have come along.

Google offers 1TB of Drive for Chromebooks, continuing its storage war with Microsoft

Google said Friday that it will offer new Chromebook buyers a free terabyte of Google Drive storage for two years, which at present rates would be worth almost $240.

On the surface, theres really nothing more to it, other than the offer's expiration on Jan. 1, 2015.The 1TB deal also matches that of Microsoft, which is bundling one year of Office 365 Personal on laptops like the $199 HP Stream 11. Office 365 Personal originally shipped withyou guessed it1TB of free OneDrive storage, though the company recently sweetened that deal even further.

What this means to you: With freebies like Office 365 subscriptions and additional cloud storage, Microsoft and Google have been providing subsidies of a sort to their hardware partners. The ultimate goal, of course, is to lock in customers to a particular ecosystem.

Connected-home Babel: There's an app for that, startup says

In the dream home of the Internet of Things, all your appliances would talk to each other. A fragmented IoT industry makes that pretty hard today, but Yonomi says its smartphone app can make it easy.

The free app ties together smart-home devices that cant communicate directly with each other and lets them work in concert. In the Yonomi app, users can set up routines involving several devices, such as having the lights go off if your fitness band detects that youve fallen asleep. Instead of making users buy and install a hub that can talk to multiple systems, Yonomi uses the phone as that hub.

Yonomi is designed for the casually connected consumer who wants a network of things but doesnt want to buy a hub, CEO and Co-Founder Kent Dickson said. He demonstrated the app at Demo in San Jose, where the company debuted this week. An Android version is available now, and iPhone users can sign up for a beta test of a future iOS version.

Crookz brings 70s groove to the heist game genre

There's something so satisfying about a well-executed heist. I don't know whether it's the idea of outsmarting an entire legion of people, or the idea of living on a beach on the fictional island of Kokomo for the rest of my life, but there's something about that primal urge that makes me want to bust out a set of lockpicks and tune up my safecracking ear.

Unfortunately in real life I am neither an accomplished lockpick nor safecracker, and instead of retiring into a Beach Boys song sipping a Mai Tai I'm sitting here writing you this article about Crookz.

Apple delivers another Yosemite beta as Wi-Fi issues persist

Apple has come out with a second beta of Mac OS X Yosemite for developers, but its not clear whether this latest build will address the Wi-Fi problems that continue to affect an undetermined but apparently substantial number of users.

With this build, labeled 10.10.2 (14C68k), Apple didnt identify any specific problem areas it would like developers to focus on as they test the OS, according to multiple reports from news outlets and individuals with access to the release notes.

When Apple released the first beta of Yosemite a little over two weeks ago, it asked developers to pay particular attention to several issues, including Wi-Fi, which has been a constant source of complaints since the OS came out.

UpCloud bets on storage performance, US datacenter to dent market

It may be a minnow in a market of whales, but Finnish cloud service company UpCloud is hoping that improving its storage performance and adding datacenter capacity in Chicago will make customers take a look.

The cloud arena has become very competitive, but there still is room for smaller companies that can find a way to stand out. While UpCloud, which expanded operations outside its native Finland last year, cant compete with Amazon Web Services range of services, it believes it can still distinguish itself as a provider of cloud-based servers and storage.

We believe very strongly that the cloud isnt a commodity, because behind the price there are multiple decisions on how services are produced that all affect performance, said CEO Antti Vilpponen.

Critical XSS flaws patched in WordPress and popular plug-in

New security updates released for the WordPress content management system and one of its popular plug-ins fix cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to take control of websites.

The WordPress development team released Thursday WordPress 4.0.1, 3.9.3, 3.8.5 and 3.7.5 as critical security updates.

The 3.9.3, 3.8.5 and 3.7.5 updates address an XSS vulnerability in the comment boxes of WordPress posts and pages. An attacker could exploit this flaw to create comments with malicious JavaScript code embedded in them that would get executed by the browsers of users seeing those comments.

Pebble's much-needed Android overhaul includes full notification support

Pebble is hoping to keep a few more people away from Android Wear with a major update for its Android companion app.

Version 2.1 for Android is a complete overhaul, and it finally allows users to see all their notifications on the Pebble smartwatch. Previously, Pebble notifications on Android were limited to a handful of sanctioned apps such as Gmail and Twitter, and users had to install third-party workarounds to fill the gaps.

Full notification support is limited to Android 4.3 for now, but Pebble says a future update will support Android 4.0 and higher. To turn on additional notifications from Android, users must open the Notifications menu in Pebble's Android app, scroll down to all apps and select the notifications they want to see.
