NEC plans to pull away from the worlwide PC market

Written by IT News on 1:33 AM

NECNEC, one of Japan's leading makers, recently announced that it intends to reorganize its business and that the computer is about to disappear from the market outside the Asia-Pacific region. According to the company is the main reason for the recent decision is a slum ping demand and strong competition. As a result, NEC will focus on its PC sales in Asia Pacific and the market will also be forced to cut part of its workforce worldwide.

According to preliminary data, NEC expects a net loss of approximately 290 billion yen ($ 2.96 billion) for the year ending March 31, 2009. In addition, the company plans to accelerate its restructuring plans, which include a withdrawal of the weaker, and to reduce its workforce by approximately 20,000 employees worldwide. According to NEC, the latest restructuring plan is the result of strong competition that has had to manage from larger competitors such as HP and Dell.

NEC will withdraw from the PC in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, because of slum ping demand and fierce competition. The decision seems justified, given that the global PC business, with 3 million personal computers, only one sixth of the NEC is that sales outside of Japan.

The news should ultimately benefit all the main suppliers of computers, such as HP and Dell, which now has a smaller competitor to worry about. On the other side of things, a market with more competitors can benefit the end user, has a wider range of options and can ultimately get the best offer.

NEC has made an effort and has also entered the emerging market for small size, low power portable computer systems, also known as netbooks. The company's products, dubbed Netbook Lavia, designed around the same Intel Atom platform, as most of its competitors in the market, making it difficult for the NEC to establish itself as a leading supplier of Netbook.

IE8 and Chrome are long are several new options through open tabs. While the cognitive thyroid is a possible solution proposed by the Mozilla open source browser in the design of the new tab for Firefox.

This is a paradox: when it happened design of the pages that are most interesting show / distraction, but an explicit goal is not to interrupt your flow, "says RASKIN.

On the other hand, if you use the mouse, you will probably take advantage of the mouse navigation support, to show the "RASKIN added.”If you use the mouse is a good indicator that you are in a cognitive flow or not. This result resolves the paradox: the links are there when you need it, not when you do not."

FBI concludes DarkMarket sting operation

Written by IT News on 10:48 PM

Earlier this week a German radio unmasked an FBI operation in a popular underground forum used by cybercriminals to sell stolen banking information and equipment used in the fraud by credit card. The FBI confirmed the operation in a press release describing the results achieved so far and their future plans.

As we previously reported radio Südwestrundfunk German hand in some documents leaked from the German national police, which the FBI had penetrated and managed by the Dark Market underground carding forum since 2006. Poined same document to board members in a forum, which has been nicknamed Master Splinter as FBI Senior Agent J. Keith Mularski for the IT Initiative and Resources Unit fusion at the National Cyber Forensics Training Alliance (NCFTA) in Pittsburgh.

The site that FBI claims have 2500 subscribers from around the world was closed earlier this month. There is no clear information on why the FBI decided to close it, but Master Splinter posted on the table before it happened "It is obvious that this forum ... attract too much attention from many of the world services (agents of FBI, SS, and Interpol). I think it was only time before this would happen. It is very unfortunate that we have come to this situation, because ... we have established DM as the first English language forum to operate. This is life. When you're on top, people try to get down."

FBI does not provide specific information on the identities of its agents infiltrated or how it all plays, but not prove the existence of the operation. "A primary goal of this operation was to infiltrate the forum, develop intelligence on its leading members, and in coordination with our U.S. and international law enforcement partners systematically identify, locate and arrest in a long time", according to the FBI's press release.

As a result of Intel gathered by the forum, a total of 56 arrests were made in the world in the last two years. The FBI estimates that, because of management, for a total of $ 70 one million saved by the theft, immediately close the compromised bank accounts have been disclosed or sold in the Forum.

The Register reports that five people were arrested this week in Britain in connection with Dark Market operation. This is confirmed by the FBI Cyber Division Assistant Director Shawn Henry. "The arrests this week in the UK is a good demonstration of the coordination taking place today between the FBI, the Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA), and other law enforcement agencies throughout the world," says Mr. Henry.

In addition, information collected in this operation may take other arrests worldwide. "Separate from these successes, this operation created new leads and more investigative information to pursue. This work is ongoing monitoring of the FBI and international law enforcement partners," informs the press release.

It should be noted that the items the FBI on the implementation of the Dark Market forum existed almost since the operation began. In 2006, shortly after he joined the administration Dark Master Splinter Board, a hacker named Max Ray Butler got unauthorized access to the database server and discloses IP the new admin used to log the IP address is registered to NCFTA in Pittsburgh, but hackers were rejected by the very members of the Forum at that time. The FBI eventually arrested Butler in 2007 on credit card fraud charges.

First ATM trojan discovered

Written by IT News on 10:27 PM

Researcher’s security antivirus Sophos has detected a Trojan that can infect the operating system of ATMs and the hook at the software developed by one of the leading global suppliers of those products, Diebold. The malware can track transactions and enter the PIN is entered credit card number.

The malware, detected by Sophos as Troj / Skim-A, were analyzed by Vanja Svájc, principal virus researcher at SophosLabs, UK. Mr. Svajcer notes that he had the idea to try such malware after a friend working at a bank, said the items that Diebold machines were infected in Russia.

Researchers have found three Diebold-related files that have been submitted by anonymous user via Virus Total service. It does a more thorough analysis of the samples, concluded that one of them is a trojan dropper, which disables the storage and installs a file called Lsass.exe (not legitimate one in Windows).

Further analysis showed that the trojan is able to record keyboard and store data in encrypted form. It is also able to print, suggesting that participants in this system were probably planning to send money mules "to recover the data." If you look at the code that makes us think that it may be possible that a criminal can obtain a paper in a special infected ATM, which then provide the ATM to print encrypted information on the stolen credit cards and PIN on what is normally host slipping "Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant Sophos says.

The file that uses features of ATM Diebold 91x agilis software to manipulate the magnetic strip. Since these functions are not documented and not available to the public, Svájc concludes that "malware seems to be the work of a programmer with good knowledge of the internal parts of the Diebold machines." In addition, physical access is most likely necessary for the installation of malware in the first instance to point to job insiders.

The Register reports that Diebold has been aware of the harmful program since January, when it was used in Russia in an attempt to intercept the transaction. The company has issued an advisory to its customers with a software update. It should also be noted that several suspects arrested by local authorities, who are still investigating the crime. The fact that the trojan monitors the transactions in U.S. dollars, plus Russian and Ukrainian currencies, shows that it originated in Eastern Europe.

This could be the first episode of fraudsters using malware to infect the ATMs, but this is not the first time, an insider involved in the manipulation of the results of payment instruments. Already in October 2008, we reported that hundreds of amendments "chip and pin" devices discovered in stores across Europe. They shared the defeat was so complex and seamlessly that the products can be edited directly from the factory in China, before being transported from accomplices in Europe.

Motorola KRE8 for music mania

Written by IT News on 3:39 AM

One of the most interesting mobile concepts we have recently encountered is the new Motorola KRE8, a product developed specifically for music lovers. According to its creator, Jose Tomas DeLuna new KRE8 will be able to do what its name implies: allows users to create their own music.

The most interesting feature of the Motorola KRE8 concept is that it can be divided into two parts, each of them to come with a built-in accelerometer that can detect the gestures you make, so that users can create their music. In addition, the device also has three pre-installed modes: Mode Instrument Recording mode and mixing mode.

Motorola KRE8 also has a touch screen display, and with 3G, GPS and a wide range of musical elements. Users can activate the feature by including a touch-screen laptop, which also provides control over it. The accelerometers allow for each piece of equipment that is used to simulate the different instruments.

In addition to enabling users to create their own music, Motorola KRE8 also feature wireless so that the contents could be shared with others on a wireless network. Users can send files to other MIDI devices or broadcast so others can enjoy them. In addition, the phone also offers the opportunity to GPS tagging file.

It is unclear whether the proposal will actually become a reality in the near future, but we do not agree that it sounds like a bad idea, even if there is anything "strange. But we have seen other strange concept as before, so this is not a single event. In addition, the device does not seem too bad, so it can attract a broad spectrum of users, after all.

Nokia N97: Not all supported Skype

Written by IT News on 2:50 AM

Nokia N97Earlier this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Skype and Nokia announced that the popular software would be embedded in mobile phone maker's products, starting with the N97 phone, which is expected to reach the market sometime in June.

Unfortunately it seems that the store has seen some resistance from wireless operators and the planned integration cannot go as smoothly as expected. O2 and Orange have been reported this week to be quite "furious" about Nokia's decision to integrate the software into its new high-end N97 smartphone.

According to the news, operators may refuse to put the company's products incorporate software that enables users to make free calls over the Internet while using a data connection. At the same time, they can only agree with the give-phones that do not include Skype, the Mobile Today website says. On the other hand, some of the carriers seem to agree with that. T-Mobile is one of those players, and 3, a British one, which already has been added to its layout, which includes Skype phones.

The deal between Nokia and Skype are offering software built into the N97 address book, which would make it possible for users to see when Skype contacts are online. At the same time, they will be able to employ the popular IM client. The software is also required to offer them the opportunity to make free and cheap phone calls over the Internet, regardless of whether they use a 3G mobile network or a Wi-Fi one.

Some of the mobile operators such as O2 and Orange, seem to think that Skype would actually reduce voice traffic and weaken their relations with customers. Nokia has not commented on news that the carriers have complained about software, but a spokesman for the company has explained that the Skype feature is not able to present some of the N97 mobile phones.

"At Mobile World Congress, we announced that Skype would be available on a limited number of N-series devices, starting with the N97, spokesman has shared." But it's possible it will not be on each N97."
