Why is Microsoft updating Windows PCs for a security bug on the server?

When Microsoft released a critical update for multiple versions of Windows Server this month, it also pushed out a fix for several releases of the Windows client OS, including even the technical preview for Windows 10.

It was critical to get the patch out for Windows Server: An exploit affecting Windows Server 2008 R2 and earlier versions has already been detected, and Windows Server 2012 and later releases are vulnerable to a related but more difficult attack.

But the vulnerability isn?t present in the desktop versions of Windows. In Windows Server, the flaw allows attackers to employ the username and password of anyone in an Active Directory domain to get the same system privileges as a domain administrator, using a forged Privilege Attribute Certificate to fool the Kerberos Domain Controller that manages remote access.

Prices for 4K monitors sink below $500

Prices for 4K monitors have dropped below US$500, bringing them within the reach of cost conscious buyers looking to replace 1080p displays.

The prices have been falling steadily from $700 or more earlier this year. 4K monitors are available from Samsung, Sharp, Dell, Asus, Acer, Monoprice and small vendors.

4K gives a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, or four times deeper than conventional 1080p resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Dell is selling its 28 Ultra HD P2815Q monitor for $449.99, down from $699.99 when the product started shipping earlier this year. Newegg is selling 28-inch monitors from AOC and Planar for $499.99.

Reports: EU taking first step towards breaking up Google

Members of the European Parliament are readying a motion calling for the break-up of Google, by separating its search engine functionality from other commercial services, according to news reports.

A draft resolution calling for the break-up should be finalized early next week, with a vote potentially on Thursday, according to a report from The Financial Times. While the European Parliament has no formal power to break up the company, a vote to split Google could put pressure on the European Commission, the EU?s executive body.

The motion is backed by several German politicians and by the Parliament?s two largest political blocs, the European People?s Party and the Socialists, according to the newspaper. The Reuters news agency also reported on the plan.

Why Uber?s long PR nightmare will end in a user privacy win

Uber is in advanced-stage damage control mode to prove to the world that it actually cares about your privacy, but it?s going to be an uphill battle. The good news for you: The end result will be a strict privacy policy crafted by a company so scared of running afoul of regulators and potential users that it will elevate standards for the entire industry.

Feminist Hacker Barbie Is Just What Our Little Girls Need

Everyone hates Mattel's Computer Engineer Barbie book, but we've fallen in love with Feminist Hacker Barbie. She's the brainchild of Kathleen Tuite, an independent computer programmer based near Santa Cruz, California, who spent a half-day on Wednesday hacking together a website where people could re-caption the original book, hacking it to fix all of its pastel-hued problems.
