When Tolkien's "Fellowship of the Ring" disbanded, its members set off towards the Grey Havens to board a ship that would take them way out west, to the so-called Blessed Realm where they would live on forever unforgotten. After fighting declining public and exhibitor interest with a string of ever-changing concepts for most of the past decade, Europe's big ICT expo – once a more-than-solid contender for Las Vegas's CES and Taipei's Computex – may not be remembered quite as fondly. Still, now that its operator Deutsche Messe AG has called off future shows at the Hanover fairground, many on the Old Continent may sense a faint glimmer of nostalgia.

Its ongoing proliferation notwithstanding, Windows 10 has often been criticized for its combination of software-as-a-service delivery model, relatively casual built-in privacy protections, and lack of preparedness to provide users with meaningful controls. The warnings prompted several authorities – among them Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik or BSI) – to take a closer look at the alleged issues. Yesterday, the researchers published part 1 of their findings.

Redmond's engineers seem to have localized the root cause for the flaw reported over the weekend: The problem has affected users who had enabled a feature known as "Known Folder Redirection" (KFR) in such a way that some files were retained in the original "old" folder location.

The most recent release of its desktop OS, dubbed version 1809, is causing the company substantial headache: After its rollout to users on October 2 – which allegedly took place even though the build had not undergone review from registered Windows Insiders – numerous users complained that they lost a bunch of files during the update process.

The San Jose-based networking giant kicked off the new month with a slew of repair suggestions covering all types of products, from ASA Software right through to various installments of Webex Center. According to the company's advisories, three fixes are rated as absolutely critical, while another ten are believed to be highly important; the remaining 26 get a medium rating. All fixes were published between Wednesday and Friday last week (October 3 through October 5).

Along with ransomware, DDoS attacks are the equivalent of a medieval plague for today's data-and-network-dependent companies. And needless to say, they're all looking for protection against strikes that will not only reliably crash their sites and cause immediate financial loss, but – if occurring repeatedly – can also bludgeon their reputation and drive away customers over the medium term. But which service providers are powerful and trustworthy enough to shield their customers' networks and still stick with European data protection and privacy rules? Two new papers from Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) aim to help CIOs and their teams find the right partners.

Researchers working for Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) have detected a security hole in Microsoft's Joint Engine Technology (JET) Database Engine that could enable attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable Windows installations. Because there is no patch available yet, the researchers caution JET Engine users not to open files from unknown or untrusted sources.

Wouldn't it be just fantastic if users could log into any web portal, mail account and myriad other services without ever having to remember one of those pesky passwords again? Yup it would be, the W3C Consortium decided at some point in 2015, and started working on the Web Authentication (WebAuthn) standard, in collaboration with the FIDO Alliance and various browser makers. Following unusually fast progress, the first Candidate Recommendation was published in March this year. Not much later, both Google and Mozilla incorporated the fresh standard and API into the then-current versions of their Chrome and Firefox browsers – yet another quick decision, but one that may now backfire.

Online trackers not only invade one's privacy, they also have a negative impact on the overall 'web experience': A study by browser extension maker Ghostery, published last May, revealed that trackers can massively cut into page load speeds – on a truly overburdened page, the rendering process may eat up more than one minute. Whether at home, at the office or on the go, this can seriously compromise the performance of knowledge workers. Plus, in the age of (mobile) broadband, it seems outright ridiculous.

Whether it's industry robots, power grids, drones or autonomous vehicles – so-called 'critical' systems and infrastructures play an increasingly important role in economies and societies around the globe. Against this backdrop, it's only logical that numerous hard- and software vendors have stepped up their efforts to develop tamper-resistant building blocks in order to increase the safety of these systems and infrastructures. Among the latest endeavors in this area is the Intel® Safety Critical Project for Linux* OS, which was introduced last Sunday and will be presented to a wider audience at the Open Source Summit in Vancouver later this week.

While IT experts frequently wrestle over numerous issues, there's also a lot of topics they easily agree on. One of these is that once disaster strikes, organizations of all types and sizes can't afford to stay offline for even an hour or two, or worse, lose business- and mission-critical data during a sudden outage. Small businesses in particular are vulnerable to the resulting repercussions: According to Gartner, 70% of small firms that experience major data losses have to close up shop within the next 12 months.

Once per quarter, there's an event that administrators tasked with managing Oracle software do not look forward to, and that's the day when the company's so-called Critical Patch Update is released. The reason for such nervousness is easy to detect: Because of their specific release cycle, these updates typically address hundreds of vulnerabilities at once – a situation that's usually exacerbated by the fact that these flaws are dispersed across dozens of software products. However, even by Oracle's standards this month's package of 334 security fixes is likely a record breaker.

Wireless networks have long been a popular target for criminal hackers of all skill and sophistication levels, especially if they still use the outdated WEP and WPA security protocols. Last fall, researchers found that even the more mature WPA2 was susceptible to offline key reinstallation (KRACK) attacks. Consequently, the Wi-Fi Alliance – the industry association that defines and maintains standards for wireless networking – is now pushing for the implementation of new protective features for enterprise and personal installations.

Every spring, organizers and event planners from Berlin, Cologne and Hanover start running ads and sending out invitations for the annual Internet Security Days – by its own description the leading conference on cybersecurity and related topics in Germany. Since its inception in 2003, the event – which is hosted by Germany's eco Association of the Internet Industry and the publishing house Heinz Heise, which is renowned for its roster of IT publications and news services – has served as some sort of one-stop shop for C-level executives from all industries who wish to learn about the latest trends, cast a glance at protective software and service offerings, or discuss practical implications of legal frameworks for privacy protection.

Users who still rely on Big Blue's legendary groupware may have a busy week ahead: According to a recently elevated security alert, the program's auto-update service (aka iNotes SUService) and the related client application can be tricked into "running malicious code from a DLL masquerading as a Windows DLL in the temp directory." Since most users consider auto-updaters to be inherently trustworthy, a flaw in these tools provides an elegant and extremely dangerous attack vector for miscreants to hijack the software and steal confident information or take control of affected machines.
