The Very Real Dangers of Virtualization

Virtualization servers have been around for well over a decade — nearly two, if you virtual-lovers out there can believe it — but to countless users in the industry, the technology still seems alien and new. However, with the growing reliance on the cloud and utilization of servers by businesses and personal uses alike, virtualization is becoming an unavoidable issue in IT departments around the world. As with any new tech, the most pressing conversation regarding virtual environments is undoubtedly one of security.

Most IT professionals agree that virtual servers aren’t necessarily less secure than traditional servers; in fact, many of them are more secure, considering their isolation and dependence on a single host. But, misunderstandings and laziness can easily put any server — virtual or physical — at risk of a dangerous breach. New adopters may have several misconceptions about what it takes to maintain a virtual server to prevent disasters. Here are the real security threats any virtual server may face and what to do to about them before they become a problem.

Windows 10 To Force Compulsory Updates With No Option To Disable

Windows 10 Updates

Updates to any software are critical to mitigate security risks, but things can get annoying with auto-updates as one can figure out from popularity of our article on how to disable Adobe updater. As now confirmed by Microsoft, the Windows 10 Home Edition would not have any configuration for user to disable automatic updates to the operating system. As per the official line the EULA (user agreement) of the new Windows OS says:

“The software periodically checks for system and app updates, and downloads and installs them for you. You may obtain updates only from Microsoft or authorized sources, and Microsoft may need to update your system to provide you with those updates. By accepting this agreement, you agree to receive these types of automatic updates without any additional notice.”

This seems a very good step to ensure security of the computer but flip-side to the story is the fact that these are not limited to ONLY security updates but anything Microsoft decides to have on your computer like the recent popup advertising the upgrade to Windows 10. Another issue considering the automated nature of these downloads is the fact that many times a user's PC is connected via a limited bandwidth, high-cost internet connection like 4G which could result in unnecessary data charges for something which could be allowed to be postponed or scheduled for another time to achieve cost effective downloading over a unlimited bandwidth connection later.

Facebook Your Phone Has A 'Name' Is Just A Hoax

You might have encountered the below shown post circulating on Facebook, the post tells that your cellphone has a secret "name" and any user can discover it by typing the last three digits of your phone number into the comments section. Apparently, it works and a name gets displayed when this is done from your mobile phone. However, the reason is not that your phone has a secret identity but because the bracketed code is a short-code which corresponds not to your phone but to a real Facebook user identity who's name gets displayed when you use it.
