Microsoft updated Windows 7, Windows 10 and Windows 11

Microsoft has released a large collection of cumulative updates for its operating system as part of its traditional monthly Patch Tuesday. Updates are offered for Windows 11, Windows 10 and even Windows 8.1 with Windows 7.

Windows 11 update KB5008215 includes several fixes and improvements that should improve system performance, stability, and security.

Windows 10 update KB5008212 is available for custom versions 2004, 20H2, 21H1 and 21H2. Basically, the update improves the security of the system.

Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 were not ignored either – here the developers paid attention to problems with printing, antiviruses and daylight saving time.

Recall that support for Windows 8.1 will continue until early 2023, but for Windows 7, free support is no longer provided. Microsoft ended support for the Windows 7 operating system a year and a half ago – January 14, 2020. However, for corporate users, Microsoft offers paid extended support for Windows 7. They can receive security updates through the Windows 7 ESU (Extended Security Updates) program until January 2023. In 2021, the price of this service has risen to $ 50 per computer, and in 2022 it will rise to $ 100 per computer.

“Alien” and “Predator” hunt for Android-smartphones. Details about the new spyware

Alien and Predator hunt for Android smartphones Details about the new

Android users have been targeted by a new spyware called Alien that can download malware or the Predator virus. The spyware was allegedly developed by Cytrox in North Macedonia.

Google claims that several exploits, which collectively fall under the Alien spyware category, were sold by Cytrox to various government-backed groups. CitizenLab, an online security research company, has also discovered several attacks, and Google claims they are all related to Alien spyware.

Google claims that zero-day exploits based on Alien spyware are used alongside some older exploits. It appears that malware developers are actively trying to take advantage of the time difference between when some critical bugs were fixed but not flagged as security issues and when those fixes were fully rolled out to the Android ecosystem.

The virus spreads mainly through email. Victims receive email messages with suspicious links. Either link redirects victims to a website that installs malware.

The virus can potentially record audio, hide applications, and perform a number of other actions. Google claims to have sent out patches to fix the vulnerabilities. However, it is important that Android users remain cautious when opening emails from unfamiliar sources. Also, email users should never click on links embedded in emails without first verifying the identity of the sender.
