Android O’s Final Name Have Just Been Uncovered









Android O’s Final Name Have Just Been Uncovered


Android O's Final Name Have Just Been Uncovered
We all know that recently, Google launched the developer preview images of Android O. Well, earlier it was hinted by many that the new operating system will have the name “Oreo”, but now the current leaks showing a different story.


Android O’s Final Name Have Just Been Uncovered 

Each year the tech giant Google releases an important version of the operating system, usually with a larger numerical increment. It is true that sometimes we have seen how this has not been like this when you moved from Android 4.0 to 4.1 or 4.3 to 4.4. But for several versions, the changes have involved major version steps.
Next, to it, we have seen names, always of sweets, that accompany to the letter of the alphabet that touches that year. We know that in 2017 will see the light Android 8.0 and that the letter that corresponds is “O”. In the last hours, it has been published that Oatmeal Cookie (oat cookie) could be the name of this version, as some leaks and images coming from the internal code of the developers handle.

Development name is not the same as trade name

Some have ventured to venture that Android O would be that Oatmeal Cookie and seeing that name expressly shown in some Google I/O images reinforces their suspicions. However, it should be remembered that Google often makes differences between internal names and trade names.
In this case, the development name is Oatmeal Cookie almost completely discard it to be the commercial nomenclature. If we look back and see the names of the development of known versions we have verified that they had nothing to do with how we know them today.
In this way, Key Lime Pie ended up being Kit Kat and the fifth version was known as Lemon Meringue Pie although we call it Lollipop and Android Marshmallow was Macadamia Nut Cookie and yes, Nougat also had development name: New York Cheesecake.
So, what do you think is it possible that Android 8.0 will be named as Oatmeal Cookie?
At any time Google could change its way of calling different versions of the system but it would be logical to continue with the current implementation. Android 8.0 Oreo Cookie, for example, would still be valid and more striking, even though currently that is not confirmed officially.

Tor Browser 7.0 Released

The creators of the Tor Browser have decided to ally with expertise in computer security in order to protect the users’ privacy. Hence, recently, Tor Browser 7.0 released with multiple extraordinary features.


Tor Browser 7.0 Released With Never seen Before Features

Navigating anonymously is not an easy task especially since everything we do gets registered. However, it is possible to “protect” our online privacy through additional tools that help us to hide our identity.

For those who want to surf the Internet without a trace, Tor Browser is undoubtedly the best solution. Today we will know the news of Tor 7.0 that was released recently.
Tor Browser allows users to browse the Internet anonymously. The Tor Browser 7.0 is the new version of the browser that ensures the best privacy for your browsing.
Just like previous versions, this new version is based on Firefox (in this case on Firefox 52 ESR), taking advantage of all the new features in multi-process mode, making it more like Chrome, and content sandbox.
The new Tor Browser Bundle is available for Windows, Linux, and MacOS. 

Beware! A New WannaCry-Inspired Ransomware Is Attacking Android Smartphones

Just after wrecking destruction on unpatched Windows systems using WannaCry Ransomware, now few notorious hackers from the China are targeting Android devices.

Since Ransomware appeared WannaCry, which was able to take advantage of two different exploits (Double Pulsar of the group ShadowBrokers and EternalBlue of the NSA) and affected thousands of machines with Windows, this has served as inspiration for many other attacks.  Recently WannaLocker was discovered, a ransomware for Android inspired by WannaCry.  
Digital security must now be regarded as something very serious, for our good. After the WannaCry attack, which especially targeted the victims’ machines that were not upgraded. WannaLocker was now discovered, a ransomware targeted at Google’s mobile operating system, Android.
According to the information, this ransomware was created by the Chinese hackers and, contrary to what happens with other ransomware types, where the payment is made through BitCoins the WannaLocker requires a payment of 40 Renminbi (about $ 6) through various Payment services, such as QQ, Alipay or WeChat.
This ransomware uses AES to encrypt information and adds a Chinese character set at the end of each file name.
According to Nikolaos Chrysaidos of Avast, this ransomware only encrypts information that is in the external memory of the equipment. Because features are limited on Android devices, ransomware only encrypts files under 10KB, excluding those found in the “Android”, “with”, “DCIM”, “download” or “miad” directories.
As always, pay attention to what you install on your system and what permissions are requested. The information we have is that this ransomware arrives through games that are available in Chinese forums.

IBM Develops World’s First 5nm Nail-Sized Chip With 30 Billion Transistors.



IBM Unveils World's First 5nm Nail-Sized Chip With 30 Billion Transistors
IBM Unveils World's First 5nm Nail-Sized Chip With 30 Billion Transistors
In a joint development, IBM and its partners developed world’s first 5nm chip using nanosheets. Not only that, even they also managed to put 30 Billion transistors in a Nail-Sized Chip as well.

IBM Unveils World’s First 5nm Nail-Sized Chip With 30 Billion Transistors

In a joint development of IBM Research, GlobalFoundries and Samsung made a huge jump in the manufacture of chips. This group of companies managed to present First 5nm Chip using nanosheets.
It is still early to market a version of this chip in the commercial market, yet it is a breakthrough in technology. To give you an idea of the tremendous advancement that is at stake, with this dimension you can put 30 billion transistors in the space of a fingernail.
To reach this level of technology, the same EUV process was used – extreme ultraviolet lithography – that allowed to reach the incredible 7nm, leaving aside the FinFET drawing. Less than two years ago, with such 7nm, it was possible to embed 20 billion transistors in the same space, now imagine the leap given to the 30 billion.
This breakthrough will revitalize the chip-making industry and keep technology on the path of Moore’s law, as the number of transistors will double every two years.

But what is currently being used?

Although the research technology already has incredible values, the truth is that at present, in practice, companies, such as Intel, for example, can put 15 billion transistors using the aforementioned FinFET process.
If we replace what we currently have with what IBM has already “proven in research”, we would be talking about a 40% improvement in the speed of a current 10nm chip, improving its efficiency by about 75%.
In addition, we would have even smaller and more powerful devices, optimized for the Internet of Things, we would have our smartphones and other mobile devices with energy consumption levels two to three times lower without losing performance, on the contrary, we would have more performance with much less energy consumption.

But when we will have this technology?

We still do not have chips made with this 7nm technology. Hence, the appearance will not be before 2018, so thinking about 5nm will be too fast and without a sustained forecast to integrate them into the current market. We can estimate that by 2020 they can be effectively able to serve us.
The most interesting thing about this kind of advancement is that device manufacturers can continue to keep up with the steps and processes they use using the 10nm chips, which have no need to revolutionize factories. Chip designers also do not have to invent the wheel to provide improvements, they get those improvements at hand as miniaturization is achieved and with that everything else (increased performance and decreased energy consumption) also happens.

The importance of nanometers

Without a microscope, we can not look at the unarmed view to see how a current chip is designed. Processing has increased exponentially and the world is increasingly dependent on smaller devices. The IoT concept will intensify our dependence on electronic resources and will be based on processing and energy, two points that nanotech can manage by increasing one and decreasing another.

'WannaCry Ransomeware' virus strikes SMS hospital in Jaipur

As per reports, a 'ransomeware virus' attack on the online system of the SMS hospital on Thursday has led to disruption of a wide range of services, including, the registration, blood test and lab reports.  


'Ransomeware' virus strikes SMS hospital in Jaipur
New Delhi: The Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital in Jaipur, Rajasthan, has become the latest victim of a 'Ransomware' virus that has affected a wide range of services worldwide by locking your systems to prevent you from accessing your data until you pay a ransom.
As per reports, a 'ransomeware virus' attack on the online system of the SMS hospital on Thursday has led to disruption of a wide range of services, including, the registration, blood test and lab reports.
Hospital staff reported that the day began with the computers working normally, however, at around 9 a.m. the systems stopped functioning all of a sudden.
Later, an investigation launched by the the IT team found out that it was a ransomeware virus attack, which has affected the functioning of the systems and brought the entire services in the hospital to a standstill.

Although the hospital administration took prompt action and made alternate arrangement following the virus attack, many patients had to leave without getting treatment.
At around 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, the problem was fixed by the IT team, who said that the files in most computers were not corrupted, although the access to them was blocked.
Dr DS Meena, SMS hospital superintendent said the data of the hospital is safe, it has not been affected., adding that the situation is now under control.
Earlier in May this year, the 'WannaCry ransomware' attack, which devastated the UK's National Health Service (NHS), infected 200,000 machines in 150 countries.
The virus, which took control of users' files and demanded payment to allow access, forced many Britain hospitals to cancel treatments, appointments, and even compel emergency rooms to turn people away.

Website of NIT Srinagar hacked after India-Pakistan match

NIT Srinagar became a target perhaps for the fact that it had hit headlines after a clash between Kashmiri and non-Kashmiri students last year.




NIT Srinagar became a target perhaps for the fact that it had hit headlines after a clash between Kashmiri and non-Kashmiri students last year when the latter cheered India's defeat in the T20 World Cup match against West Indies. The servers were downed after the attack.In an unfortunate series of events that unfolded in the Kashmir Valley in the aftermath of the India-Pakistan tie in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at Edgbaston that left the neighbours' nose bloodied, pro-Kashmir elements hacked the official website of the premier National Institute of Technology (NIT) based in Srinagar on Monday, calling for an Azaad Kashmir.
While the nation was busy grappling with an early-morning terrorist attack on a CRPF station at Sumbal in Bandipora district of Kashmir, which was foiled by jawans and left four terrorists dead, pro-Kashmir freedom elements, most probably from across the border, hacked the website of the premier institute and posted, "Ask for milk, we shall give you sweets. Ask for Kashmir we shall kill you." This, ironically, has been the clarion call of the Right wing, which it employs towards those asking for Kashmir's freedom.

"We saw that the website had been hacked when some students tried to access it to see a few articles of the syllabus. We were shocked to see that the website bore anti-India literature, anti-Indian Armed Forces propaganda and a call to leave Kashmir and give it freedom," one of the students told Mail Today.
WHAT THE POSTERS SAID
The posters, uploaded in the name of one 'All Pak Cyber Skullz Members', said. "We shall fight till the last breath. What shall a man not pay for living? Everyday 100s of innocent people are abused, raped and even killed in Kashmir by Indian army, a third of the deaths are children. We don't want war. Take back your guns and go back to where you came from."
"All we ask is for freedom, you can kill us, you can't kill us all, we shall not give up." The poster went on to say: "Giving up is not an option." In yet another poster the hackers declared their identity as 'Hacked by SH11: Team Pak Cyber Skullz'.

The poster also said, "Go Modi Go." To a rhetorical question - "You know why you got hacked - which the hackers obviously wanted to answer, the poster said, "Free Kashmir. Freedom is our goal. Kashmir does not want militarised governance. Stop killing children, raping women and imprisoning the men! They just want freedom! Freedom from the evil of the Indian Military!"
