Windows 8 2012 Release - February 16, 2011, 10:45 AM

Been reading up on Windows 8 and amazed by the technology it will be using. Would be nice if some of the rumors were true about Windows 8 (Roaming profile that follows a user wherever they go...can be used on tablets, notebooks, laptops, pc's and even coding that allows for applications to be preserved and the settings preserved while your device wipes out all viruses, spyware and malware. It will also use Jupiter software for application development.

Check it out: Windows 8 News

Looks like for the most part Windows 8 will rely heavily on cloud computing

Everyone is talking about the cloud and wanting to be integrated into it. Hosting your data, applications and software on the cloud and not on the machine itself.

My question, has anyone verified how secure this is and what happens when the cloud goes down?

I still remember when the Sidekick cloud went down about 3 years ago. What a debacle that was for millions of people.

That's a good question. Honestly it's becoming cheaper and cheaper to add in redundancy. With VM servers and switches your seeing a new type of data center. And let's face it there are no more doors open in the cloud then are all ready open to your company now.

This will be a security cluster-f*ck. Microsoft needs to write more secure code and stop using its customer base as it's beta-testers. Would you trust your tires if you had to patch them every month?

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 Memory Address Disclosure

Date Disclosed:
6.30.2010

Date Patched:
Patch Not Yet Available

Vendor:
Microsoft
Affected Software:
Internet Explorer 8
Description:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 contains a vulnerability when calculating timer ID's that could cause specific memory addresses (i.e. persistent memory locations) to be disclosed. If an attacker is able to combine knowledge of memory locations with a more critical vulnerability (e.g. one that could potentially allow code execution), then it could be further leveraged to bypass ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) protection.

[0day] Microsoft mshtml.dll CTimeoutEventList::InsertIntoTimeoutList memory leak
We are leaking a pointer from a segment of the IE8's default process
heap. But, what is that pointer? Why does it increment everytime I press
the button? Let's see the technical analysis:

Inside CWindow's constructor (mshtml's standard) a variable "IDEvent",
is initialized to 1
Module: mshtml.dll Vista SP2

Tires and free software are not a good comparison. It's amazing how much money MS dumps into putting out patches. They are fighting a army of folks that are trying to crack their software every second of the day.

Obviously, you are not involved with protecting networks. Next question...

Before anyone feels the need to throw their IT e-dick around, you should know that I trump you.

Thank you,

Today, Internet Explorer STILL doesn't have the option to disable javascript at the user's discretion as dynamic as Mozilla's No Script. It's been almost 8 months and only part of it has been patched.

I see your point. But I am still a MS fan I have gotten paid very well for a long time because of MS. And to be fair I have to patch CISCO and ARUBA shit all the time.
