Google aims to find out if showing only a domain name in the address bar will help Chrome users spot scams

Google Chrome

Google will subject Chrome users to a large-scale test in the next version of its browser to discover how people respond to just seeing a site’s domain name without the full URL for pages on that site.

The test will be carried out on Chrome 86, which is due for a stable release at the end of this month.

Chrome 86 is already known to include a feature that detects and unloads heavy ads and throttles JavaScript timers used on websites to deliver better battery life for end-user devices.

Google’s new experiment will involve some “randomly assigned” users of Chrome 86. These users will have two choices when the full URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is concealed. Those in the experiment would, for example, only see rather than the full address of the specific Wikipedia page.

Microsoft is redesigning the 100 icons used in Windows 10 Ravensdale Digital

Microsoft is redesigning the 100 icons used in Windows 10

Microsoft is redesigning the 100 icons used for its apps and tools

Microsoft Windows10 support in Port Elizabeth

Microsoft users can expect to see over 100 new icons for its mobile apps and Windows utility tools in the coming year.

The company last year revealed 10 new Office icons, which attempted to “keep the tradition alive while gently pushing the envelope” with its Fluent Design System. Apps such as Outlook, Powerpoint, Word and Excel all retained a single letter in the icon (O, P, W, E and so on), but the letters were separated from the icon and appear to hover above it.

Microsoft has now scaled up that design change for over 100 icons, which include standalone apps, Windows utilities and mixed reality icons. The new icons were all “cut from the same cloth”, according to Jon Friedman, corporate vice president of design and research at Microsoft.

How to control location tracking on your iPhone in iOS 13

The latest version of iOS offers some convenient ways to manage location tracking by apps.

Tracking your location via your mobile device is something many apps and websites attempt to do. Developers, advertisers, and website vendors track your location not only to facilitate certain features but also to serve you targeted ads and other location-based content.

Of course, location tracking is a dicey area as many people aren’t comfortable with the loss of privacy. With the new version of iOS, Apple offers some handy tools for managing location tracking on your iPhone. Using the Location Services feature, you can set different options for each individual app that wants access to your location.

What is Artificial Intelligence? Ravensdale Digital

What is Artificial Intelligence?

What is Artificial Intelligence?

It depends on who you ask.
Back in the 1950s, the fathers of the field Minsky and McCarthy, described artificial intelligence as any task performed by a program or a machine that, if a human carried out the same activity, we would say the human had to apply intelligence to accomplish the task.

That obviously is a fairly broad definition, which is why you will sometimes see arguments over whether something is truly AI or not.

AI systems will typically demonstrate at least some of the following behaviours associated with human intelligence: planning, learning, reasoning, problem-solving, knowledge representation, perception, motion, and manipulation and, to a lesser extent, social intelligence and creativity.

Malware infection disrupts production at defence contractor plants in three countries Ravensdale Digital

Malware infection disrupts production at defence contractor plants in three countries

One of the biggest defence contractors in the world is having a very bad week after malware infected the company’s network and caused “significant disruption” at plants in three countries, the company said on Thursday.

The infection took root on Tuesday, September 24, and affected Rheinmetall AG, a German corporation based in Düsseldorf, and one of the biggest manufacturer of armored fighting vehicles, tanks, ammunition, and various electronic systems.

Plants in Brazil, Mexico, and the US have been impacted, Rheinmetall said in a press release.

The company did not reveal any details about the incidents, or what type of malware was involved.


Rheinmetall said it expects to malware incident to have an impact on its bottom line in the long run, with losses in the tens of millions of euros.

While deliverability is assured in the short term, the length of the disruption cannot be predicted at this time. The most likely scenarios suggest a period lasting between two and four weeks,

it said

“As things stand, the Group expects the malware event to have an adverse impact on operating results of between €3 million and €4 million per week starting with week two.”

A spokesperson was not available for comment and additional details.

Rheinmetall is not the only major company to suffer a major malware infection in the past year. Past incidents mostly include ransomware incidents, such as those at aeroplane parts manufacturer Asco, aluminium provider Norsk Hydro, cyber-security firm Verint, the UK Police Federation, utility vehicles manufacturer Aebi SchmidtArizona Beverages, engineering firm Altran, the Cleveland international airport, and chemicals producers Hexion and Momentive.

Earlier this week, French TV station France24 revealed that Chinese state-sponsored hackers breached multiple Airbus suppliers by using unpatched VPN systems to enter their internal networks. The same hackers are said to have also targeted British engine-maker Rolls-Royce and the French technology consultancy and supplier Expleo.


Microsoft says Windows 10 1903 is officially ready for broad deployment Ravensdale Digital

Microsoft says Windows 10 1903 is officially ready for broad deployment

Microsoft’s Windows 10 1903, a k a the May 2019 Update, is officially ‘ready for broad deployment for all users via Windows Update.’ That new status was achieved on September 26, as Microsoft noted on its Windows 10 Release Information status page.

The status change coincided with the September 26 release of the latest Windows 10 1903 Cumulative Update (KB4517211, Build 18362.387), which included a number of fixes for various issues in the product, including a fix for audio issues affecting certain games.

As Microsoft notes on its release information page, devices running Windows 10 1803 (the April 2018 Update) Home, Pro and Pro for Workstation editions will reach the end of support on November 12, 2019. Microsoft started to auto-update these users — along with those running earlier versions of Windows 10 past their end of service — to 1903 since July 2019. Microsoft advises users who have not been “offered” Windows 10 1903 to check its Release Information page for possible known issues affecting their devices which may be resolved and/or resolvable.

We recommend commercial customers running earlier versions of Windows 10 begin broad deployments of Windows 10, version 1903, in their organizations,

Microsoft is still not believed to have finalized its Windows 10 1909 feature release, but it seemingly is close to doing so. Once that happens, Microsoft should begin rolling out 1909 to mainstream users. I’m hearing this should happen in the next month or so. To make sure you’re ready and in control when the next Windows 10 feature update hits, check out these tips


Ransomware – Precaution is better than Paying Cash Ravensdale Digital

Ransomware – Precaution is better than Paying Cash

Ransomware – Precaution is better than Paying Cash

According to a 2017 Annual Threat Report by SonicWall, ransomware attacks have exploded in 2016. SonicWall’s Global Response Intelligence Grid saw more than 628 million ransomware attempts last year, up from the 3.8 million attempts recorded in 2015, and 3.2 million recorded in 2014. A 19% increase year-over-year is alarming, but a 165 fold increase over the course of a single year is a call for action.

As a business owner in today’s world, you are not safe from ransomware attacks. Learn how you can prevent a cyber-attack on the IT infrastructure of your business and keep data protected. Remember precaution is always better than giving ransom money to cybercriminals.

Last week’s global ransomware attack #wannacry successfully immobilized over 200,000 computers across 40 countries, including 70,000 machines and medical equipment across NHS hospitals in England and Scotland. The attack also caused large corporations to halt operations, such as the UK’s Nissan Manufacturing Plant- one of the busiest in the country, and FedEx, which later ordered all North American facilities to take any non-essential Windows devices off their networks.

The attack was thwarted late Friday afternoon by a 22-year-old in the UK, who exploited a flaw in the malware by registering a $10 domain name. It seems the malware was calling out to a specific unowned domain to carry out the attacks. Now at the start of a new work week, security experts are expecting #wannacry to make a comeback- this time it will be missing its kill switch.

Below you will find a quick summary of the different types of ransomware and how you should protect your business from future risk.

Ransomware can affect your devices in different ways, usually broken down into two sub-types, encrypting and non-encrypting.

Encrypting Ransomware

Encrypts your documents, pictures, videos and every other type of file format you have on your computer. You will need to pay a cybercriminal for a key to decrypt the system. Examples of encrypting ransomware include CryptoLocker and CryptoWall.

Non-Encrypting Ransomware

Locks your screen and prohibits you from accessing the system. You will only be able to access your computer when you pay the ransom money. WinLock is an example of non-encrypting ransomware. There are also a few non-encrypting ransomware trojans that display fake messages from law enforcement agencies to extract money from victims.

A Less Common Ransomware

Another type of ransomware is MBR (Master Boot Record) Ransomware. It strikes the MBR section of the computer’s hard drive and restricts it from booting the operating system.

Is your Business At Risk? Yes, it is.

Last week’s #wannacry attack is a great example of why no one is safe from ransomware. If your business has a computer and access to the internet, your business is at risk.

Cybercriminals attack businesses for many reasons such as:

  • Unlike individuals, business owners are assumed to have the resources to pay large amounts of money in short time periods.
  • Many business owners do not report cyber-attacks because they believe that it will damage their reputation and negatively impact their customer base.
  • Cybercriminals know business owners will look for the quickest solution if their business operations are disrupted. In most cases, this means paying the ransom.
  •  New business policies such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or Remote Access File-Sharing provide flexibility to employees. But, they also offer an easy platform for cybercriminals to attack your business.
  • Business owners often ignore the security of IT infrastructure which makes the computers prone to vulnerabilities.
  • Usually, small business owners manage the IT infrastructure on their own without the help of experienced IT professionals. This leaves businesses defenceless against multiple data issues including ransomware.

How does a Ransomware affect a Computer?

  • The most common method involves using spam emails with malicious links.
  • Vulnerable software and installation of pirated/outdated software.
  • If you visit an untrusted website or a legitimate website with malicious code, it can spread ransomware.
  • If your PC is on a ransomware-affected network, it can give cybercriminals access to your data.

Precautions against Ransomware

Precaution is the best solution in a fight against ransomware! Cybercriminals take advantage of unpatched software, outdated apps, and pirated operating systems to access your system. It is best to take preventative measures against ransomware so you do not have to leave your business’ uptime in the hands of cybercriminals. Here are a few tips to help keep you safe:

  • Keep the operating system updated. Avoid using pirated versions of operating systems. Update your apps regularly. Remember that patches save you from a large number of cyber-attacks.
  • Install a robust anti-virus program and make sure that your employees update it regularly.
  • Backup your data to an external hard-drive or any other backup appliance. Cloud-based ransomware attacks have made it necessary to use a physical layer as part of your back-up strategy. Also, do not forget to back up your websites and website databases.
  • Do not login to untrusted websites and train employees to avoid trusting unknown websites.
  • Provide limited access to certain users. If a user’s PC is infected by ransomware, cybercriminals will only be able to access areas the user is allowed to. This can help mitigate risks to other devices in a different security layer.
  • Set up strong SPAM filters to block attachments such as .exe, .zip, .rar, .scr, etc. to restrict access to SPAM messages with ransomware trojans.
  • Disable macros on your entire network. Use of macros for malware attack is a very common phenomenon. You can use the new blocking feature in Office 2016 and disable it via a Group Policy or on an individual basis.

Cybercriminals are inventing new ways of attacking your business every day. It can be taxing to try and keep up with the latest security updates and best practices. That’s why many business leaders choose to hire managed IT professionals to oversee and protect their IT infrastructure. Choose a reputable company to manage your IT environments that can ensure accountability and has a proactive service model. This way, decision-makers can focus their efforts towards new business goals and drive future growth!
