Almost Every Antivirus Software Program Can Be Exploited: Researchers

Almost Every Antivirus Software Program Can Be Exploited

A vulnerability in almost all antivirus software platforms could have been exploited to disable anti-malware protection and turned into destructive tools, security researchers from RACK911 Labs revealed. RACK911 Labs has found a unique method of using directory junctions (in Windows) and symlinks (in macOS and Linux) to turn antivirus software products into self-destructive tools. However, it was reported that most of the antivirus companies have now fixed the vulnerability in their products.

How the bugs are exploited

Researchers stated that an attacker must be highly time-sensitive and should know when to exploit the directory junction or symlink vulnerabilities. “What most antivirus software fail to take into consideration is the small window of time between the initial file scan that detects the malicious file and the cleanup operation that takes place immediately after. A malicious local user or malware author is often able to perform a race condition via a directory

Learn to Program HTML in 21 Minutes

Learn to Program HTML in 21 Minutes

Hardcopy featured a 10-year-old boy one night back in the
mid-1990s. His psychotic mother wouldn’t take her meds and was beating
him up. He wanted to live with his father but the judge wouldn’t change
his custody arrangement. So the 10-year-old kid built a Web site to
encourage Internetters to contact the judge in support of a change in
custody.

If you think that you need professional help to build a static HTML Web
site, tell yourself “The abused 10-year-old got his site to
work; I think I can, too.”

You May Already Have Won $1 Million

Then again, maybe not. But at least you already know how to write legal HTML:

My Samoyed is really hairy.

That is a perfectly acceptable HTML document. Type it up in a text
editor, save it as index.html, and put it on your Web server. A

STPP Graduate Certificate program | The Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan

Overview

The STPP graduate certificate program is designed for students already enrolled in a degree program at the University of Michigan. Master’s or doctoral students from any field are welcome to apply. No background in science or in policy is required. 

In 12 credit hours of course work (two core courses and two electives), students learn how science and technology are influenced by politics and policy, analyze the role of science and technology in the policymaking process, develop policy writing skills, gain methods and tools for science and technology policy analysis, and explore the political and policy landscape of specific science and technology areas, including biotechnology, information and communication technology, energy policy, and more.

Learn how to apply to the STPP Certificate program.

The program provides students with tools to analyze complex science and technology policy issues, and consider the following types of questions:

  • How are science and technology influenced

numerical analysis: Computer software

Software to implement common numerical analysis procedures must be reliable, accurate, and efficient. Moreover, it must be written so as…

Programs stored in the memory of a computer enable the computer to perform a variety of tasks in sequence or even intermittently. The idea of an internally stored program was introduced in the late 1940s by the Hungarian-born mathematician John von Neumann. The first digital computer designed with internal programming capacity was the EDVAC (acronym for Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer), constructed in 1949.

Computer program – Wikipedia

Instructions to be executed by a computer

A computer program is a collection of instructions[1] that can be executed by a computer to perform a specific task. Most computer devices require programs to function properly.

A computer program is usually written by a computer programmer in a programming language. From the program in its human-readable form of source code, a compiler or assembler can derive machine code—a form consisting of instructions that the computer can directly execute. Alternatively, a computer program may be executed with the aid of an interpreter.

A collection of computer programs, libraries, and related data are referred to as software. Computer programs may be categorized along functional lines, such as application software and system software. The underlying method used for some calculation or manipulation is known as an algorithm.

Code-breaking algorithms have existed for centuries. In the 9th century, the Arab
