Malwarebytes’ has revealed in its blog that the security flaw was found in earlier versions of Microsoft Silverlight 5.1.20125.0 enable malware writers to write malicious programs on compromised systems without having to do any user interaction. The exploit was first found in Angler Exploit kits.

How it affects Microsoft Silverlight?

Microsoft has earlier addressed and patched the security flaw; but now the exploit is spotted to allow malware attackers to run arbitrary codes on affected systems. As spotted for the first time by Chris Wakelin (‏@EKwatcher) and @kafeine has analyzed how the malware attack works on Netflix website.

When the Angler exploit kit is on the exploit webpage and asserts which version of Microsoft Silverlight has been installed on the computer, through the exploit. If the Angler exploit kit determines that the computer is in good condition, it creates a library to exploit the vulnerability of Microsoft Silverlight. Though only a small number of websites needs Microsoft Silverlight to run, but Netflix is one of them. Since Netflix has a whopping 40 million users who are using the website for steaming content, hence the mass of people to be at risk of this Microsoft Silverlight vulnerability is high.

HP TouchSmart® Desktops

HP is an innovative company, which has been always launching products that are user friendly and ergonomically designed. HP has been one of the pioneer companies in the introduction of the touch screen and touch sensitive applications on their desktops and laptops, well ahead of the competition.

HP was one of the first companies to introduce the concept of All-In-One PC way back in 1972. An All-In-One PC, in the technologically advanced world today looks different though. The All-In-One PC is a slim LCD monitor housing the CPU, power supply, drives, disks, displays and everything required in a PC except the keyboard and mouse. With a lot of manufacturers introducing products similar to HP’s touch screen All-In-One PC, HP moved one step ahead in introducing a model with a pivoting facility and even a reclining feature.

In the earlier offerings of HP, the display was vertical and rather cumbersome, even tiring when put to use, for long hours in a day, with the forearm forced to be parallel to the worktable, to touch the screen time and again. This fatigue factor did not go well with the desktop PC. Although, this was okay on POS terminals, ATMs, Kiosks, etc. where the usage was for a few moments only, this posed various issues when brought into application on the desktop PC.

HP introduced two new models recently, with large 23 inch touch screen displays, where the entire display unit, pivoted, can swivel around to 180 degrees and even recline up to 60 degrees. The TouchSmart 610 and 9300, Elite Business PCs have taken the All-In-One PC to completely new heights of comfort and ergonomics, making touch interaction a new experience.

The new TouchSmart software layer has made apps like the NetFlix, Hulu, Twitter etc. innovatively wonderful to work with. The TouchSmart App center is also interesting.

While the TouchSmart 610 All-In-One PC is typically positioned as a consumer model, the 9300 Elite Business All-In-One PC has been put in as an enterprise version as also for Kiosks, POS Counters, etc. or customer spaces. While the TouchSmart 610 is configured with Intel or AMD processors, the 9300 comes with the elite Sandy Bridge chipset from Intel.

Exclusive features like Face Recognition software with the 2 mega pixel camera, Blu-ray drive, 160 GB SSD option, Beats Audio system and 1920 x 1080 resolution make these offerings, exclusive All-In-One PC. The Windows 7 operating system, 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 6-in-one card reader, slot loading DVD player, wall mounting options and interesting apps, make the HP products really smart.
