Steam SHOCK: Hackers could have taken control of YOUR PC thanks to this vulnerability   

Steam fans are being warned about a vulnerability that experts say has existed for 10 years.

Cyber security experts have put Steam users on alert about the remote code execution vulnerability.

Context Information Security said this backdoor affected all 15 million active Steam clients.

In a blog post online, the cyber security firm said the vulnerability allowed hackers to carry out remote code execution attacks.

Leveraging this, it was possible for hackers to control a victim's machine.

Writing online Tom Court, a senior researcher for Context, said: "This was a very simple bug, made relatively straightforward to exploit due to a lack of modern exploit protections."

No Kernel 5.0! Linus Torvalds Prefers Releasing it as Kernel 4.17   

Linus Torvalds has announced the release of Linux Kernel 4.17. Take a look at main new features in the latest kernel release.

A new Linux Kernel has been released today and unlike the expectations, it is not called Kernel 5.0.

On Linux's Kernel Mailing list webpage, Linus Torvalds describes why he didn't prefer to term this release as the Linux Kernel 5.0:

"No, I didn't call it 5.0, even though all the git object count numerology was in place for that. It will happen in the not _too_distant future, and I'm told all the release scripts on are ready for it, but I didn't feel there was any real reason for it. I suspect that around 4.20 which is I run out of fingers and toes to keep track of minor releases, and thus start getting mightily confused I'll switch over. That was what happened for 4.0, after all."

Microsoft Office diagnostic info- tell them a little or a lot but always tell Microsoft   

The latest early release of Office for Windows/Mac gives you 'choices' for sharing diagnostic information about Office.  You can choose to send Microsoft a lot of information or just a little data but you can't refuse completely.

There are legitimate questions about what information is being sent to Microsoft and how it's being used. That includes being combined with other data to discover more about individual companies or individuals.

The corporate culture at Microsoft has always been arrogant and assured of its own righteousness.  These 'choices' are just the latest example of it.

Thousands of smartphone owners are affected - in the past month alone Avast discovered the Cosiloon adware on around 18,000 devices.

Avast reported the findings of their research to Google who have "taken steps to mitigate the malicious capabilities of many app variants on several device models, using internally developed techniques."
