  1. Yes, nearly every Intel chipset released after 2015, that is, in the past five years contains a vulnerability that could allow hackers to gain deep access to your computers. This particular issue was brought to light by the security firm Positive Technologies. Essentially what's happening is that whenever you boot your computer that's running on Intel chipset, the security measures within the CPU's Converged Security and Management Engine (CSME) aren't being executed properly. These security measures are in place to lock down the computer's memory and prevent hackers from modifying it. © Reuters According to the folks over at Positive Technologies, there's a brief moment between booting the computer and when protections within the CSME execute. That window is enough for hackers to execute a malicious code and get deep access to your computer. That, however, isn't even the worst part. According to the folks over at Ars Technica, it looks like the flaw cannot be fixed with a firmware update because it's hard-coded into the silicon itself. Yeah, it's just as scary as it sounds. So What Can You Do? © Reuters As scary as the vulnerability sounds, it's worth pointing out that exploiting it will require physical access to your computer. Also, it's not something that an average scammer can do. Exploiting a system through this vulnerability will require a significant amount of knowledge, and it's not something that can be done via a phishing link. Long story short, you, as an average user, are probably safe and don't have to worry about this much. It looks like Intel is aware of this particular issue and it says that the users must keep their system up to date at all times. We'll definitely be reporting more on this as we hear from Intel.

  2. A couple of weeks back, I attended one of India's biggest eSports event called ESL One. It was an amazing experience and I wrote all about it here. The ESL One event was backed by Intel, and I got to chat with a few Intel executives who were present at the event. At the event, I met Frank Soqui, VP & GM of Intel gaming, Lee Machen, GM of gaming sales at Intel, and Prakash Mallya, VP & MD, sales and marketing group Intel India. We had a great time discussing gaming, hardware, OEMs and more. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer One of the questions that popped up during our conversation was about the rise of cloud gaming services like Google Stadia in the market. Well, for those of you who don't know, cloud gaming services are just like your streaming services, but for games. These cloud game streaming services will essentially let you play any game on any compatible device, as long as you have a strong internet connection. Yes, it's a phenomenal idea, but the rise of these cloud game streaming services will only lead to the downfall of hardware makers like Intel. I mean, think about it. Who'd be interested in buying expensive chipsets and build a gaming rig, when one can simply stream the games over the internet without worrying about system requirements? © Reuters Well, to my surprise, Frank Soqui seemed pretty optimistic about the arrival of cloud gaming. According to him, cloud gaming is going to introduce a lot of people to gaming, which means more potential customers for Intel. “After getting a taste of cloud gaming, more people are going to want to upgrade their rig and step up their gaming experience at some point in the future”, said Frank. Further adding to this topic, Frank also noted that computers are not meant for just gaming, and there are a ton of other things you could on a PC like content creation, for instance. “It's still a multiple purpose device. It doesn't just play games. It's just that it can also play games really well among other things”, said Frank. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer And then, there's the whole argument about enthusiast gamers not wanting to compromise on the gaming experience. I am pretty sure there are a lot of gamers who would be interested in getting the best experience, and they might not compromise by relying on cloud gaming solutions. So, is cloud gaming going to affect hardware makers like Intel or is it going to be a smooth sail like Frank says it will be? Well, I think it's too early gauge the success and adoption of cloud gaming. I am sure we'll have a lot more to discuss once these services reach at least the major markets.

  5. Apple's Mac lineup is reportedly gearing up for a major hardware shift that could end up leaving some users out in the cold. According to Bloomberg, Apple plans to abandon Intel chips as early as 2020, bringing Apple's own A-series processors to Mac hardware. There are many different types of chips and processors that go into Apple's products, both from Intel and competitors such as Qualcomm, Broadcom, and ARM. But Apple has increasingly looked to bring the design of the most important chips — for things like artificial intelligence and augmented reality — in-house, with chips for Mac, Watch, AirPods, and Beats. © Apple Should this happen, the Mac computer line would have a similar processor strategy to the iPhone and iPad, which already use Apple-produced processors such as the A11 Bionic chip in the iPhone X. Losing Apple as a customer would deal a big blow to Intel. While Macs make up only a small percentage of the total PC market -- 8.2 percent in the fourth quarter, according to IDC -- Apple remains one of the biggest and most powerful companies in technology. Macs tend to command higher prices than Windows-based PCs, and while many PC companies have seen their market share slide, Apple's has been rising. The project, reportedly code-named "Kalamata," is still in its very early stages, but the aim is to make Macs work better in concert for iPhones and iPads. Bloomberg says it will "result in a multi-step transition," so you won't see every device get Apple's new processors anytime soon. © Reuters Intel shares dropped as much as 9.2 percent, the biggest intraday drop in more than two years. By using its own chips, Apple would be able to more tightly integrate new hardware and software, potentially resulting in systems with better battery life — similar to iPhones, which use Apple chips. While Intel has many lines of business, it is still known for its "Intel Inside" computer products. Apple is a large and influential customer. The Mac Pro and iMac Pro use the Intel Xeon, the iMac has Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, and Macbooks use versions of the Intel Core i5, Intel Core m3, and Intel Core i7.
  6. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif speaking on Geo News programme Capital Talk. Photo: Geo News screen grab 1 ISLAMABAD: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the Iranian government provided Pakistan with all the intel they had on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav. Zarif, who is visiting Pakistan on a diplomatic tour, was speaking to Geo News anchorperson Hamid Mir on Tuesday. He shared that there were "two suicide attempts" near Pakistan and Iran border last night but they were countered with efforts of both the countries. "We had excellent cooperation from Pakistani armed forces. We are very happy with the level of cooperation that exists today," he remarked. Javad Zarif reiterated his commitment towards improving relations between the neighbouring countries and stressed that Iran will not allow its land to be used for activities against Pakistan. He said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif had tried to improve relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia but the attempts did not receive a positive response from Saudi Arabia. The full interview will be aired on Geo News programme Capital Talk at 8:05 pm tonight.
  7. The show traces the rising threat of Al-Qaeda and puts a rarified CIA pressing for pre-emptive military action on a collision course with the law enforcement muscle of the FBI NEW YORK: Published 12 years ago, best-selling and Pulitzer-prize winning book "The Looming Tower" remains a definitive account of US intelligence failures that littered the path to the September 11, 2001 attacks. On Wednesday it airs as a television mini-series, narrating the power struggle between the CIA and the FBI, whose refusal to cooperate may have prevented the world´s greatest superpower from failing to stop 19 Al-Qaeda hijackers training at US flight schools and smashing passenger jets into New York and Washington, killing nearly 3,000 people. The 10 episodes of roughly 50 minutes each are being released in the United States on Hulu from Wednesday, and will be available on Amazon Prime from March 1 in other English-speaking countries and from March 9 for everyone else. It traces the rising threat of Al-Qaeda and puts a rarified CIA pressing for pre-emptive military action on a collision course with the law enforcement muscle of the FBI, which together failed to avert the world´s deadliest terror attack, ushering in wars still being fought today. "The Looming Tower" the mini-series begins in 1998, shortly before the Al-Qaeda bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 224 people, and closes on September 11, 2001, that date seared into global infamy. The drama romps from Afghanistan to London, from Nairobi to Washington, spliced with archive footage of Osama bin Laden, the Saudi millionaire outcast who founded Al-Qaeda. Shooting took place across three continents and six countries, with the bulk of filming in New York, Morocco and Johannesburg, in not altogether convincing efforts to portray the Hindu Kush or an Al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan. Woven in are period features from the late 1990s. The Monica Lewinsky scandal engulfing a distracted Clinton presidency is a constant backdrop. Look out for chunky cell phones, green-screen computers and sexist dialogue in the workplace. Lawrence Wright, the New Yorker journalist who wrote the book, shares an executive producing credit with Dan Futterman and Oscar-winning documentary maker Alex Gibney. Early reviews are largely positive, predicting it will be Hulu´s second major success after "The Handmaid´s Tale" and tipped for future awards. ´Least of America´s problems´ Jeff Daniels, 63, plays the lead role of John O´Neill, the charismatic ladies man and bull-in-a-china-shop agent who heads up the FBI´s counter-terrorism unit in New York, with a side-line in mistresses, bunches of flowers and cheap one-liners. Not to mention a wife and two daughters. His foil is Martin Schmidt, the arrogant and aloof head of the CIA´s Al-Qaeda unit played by Peter Sarsgaard, who believes the agency alone has the smarts to halt Al-Qaeda and who defies presidential orders to withhold intelligence from the FBI. The other starring role is real-life character Ali Soufan, a Lebanese-born Muslim and one of only eight Arabic speakers among more than 10,000 FBI agents, who goes undercover and is acted without a trace of French accent by Tahar Rahim. "I thought I knew what happened, but you read Lawrence´s books... you realize you don´t," Daniels told a recent press event in Paris. "You don´t know the real story. That´s why I took the role," he explained. The real O´Neill was killed on September 11 at the World Trade Center, where he became head of security after leaving the FBI. To prep for his role, Daniels immersed himself in Soufan and his FBI partners. "They were very helpful so I had a pretty good painting of what he was," he explained. Rahim, 36, said it was meeting the real Soufan that persuaded him to take on the role, initially thinking "it was going to be one of those terrorist roles that I get offered a lot." For many viewers, those days might feel like yesterday. But for younger audiences and those weighed down by a very different America, wearied by wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and with Donald Trump as president, it feels like another world. "This show is the least of America´s problems right now," Daniels said in Paris. "I think 9/11 happened when we had a fully staffed government, with brilliant, knowledgeable, experienced competent people and 9/11 still happened. Now you can take out brilliant, knowledgeable, experienced, competent... I don´t like our chances."
  8. Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member on the House Intelligence Committee, arrives to watch U.S. President Donald Trump deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S. January 30, 2018. REUTERS WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Monday accused US Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, of leaking ?confidential? information. The panel is conducting one of several federal investigations into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election. Trump has repeatedly maintained there was no collusion between him and his campaign and Russia. ?Adam (Schiff) leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!? Trump wrote in a post on Twitter. On Friday, the House intelligence panel released a memo that alleged that the FBI and the Justice Department were biased against Trump in part of their investigation. Trump said the memo vindicated him, but critics say it leaves out crucial context. Democrats have pushed to publish a rebuttal. Some Republican lawmakers have played down the significance of the memo and say the investigation by the special counsel, Robert Mueller, must continue. Representatives for Schiff could not be immediately reached for comment.
  9. Headquarters of the National Security Agency (NSA). Image: Reuters WASHINGTON: US intelligence chiefs on Thursday sounded the alarm about the imminent expiration of a law that allows them to spy on overseas web users, and called on Congress to renew it immediately. "If Congress fails to reauthorize this authority, the Intelligence Community will lose valuable foreign intelligence information, and the resulting intelligence gaps will make it easier for terrorists, weapons proliferators, malicious cyber actors, and other foreign adversaries to plan attacks against our citizens and allies without detection," the intelligence chiefs said in an open letter to Congress. The letter was signed by Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI chief Christopher Wray, and National Security Agency (NSA) director Michael Rogers. The law they want extended ? known as Article 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) ? is set to expire at the end of the year, and Congress is preparing a temporary extension until January 19 as part of a short-term budget bill which will fund the federal government. The House of Representatives was due to vote on the budget later Thursday, with a deadline to pass it by midnight Friday. The Senate will vote on it after that. The law allows US intel agencies to spy on internet users abroad, including on platforms like Facebook and Skype. Congress initially passed the law in 2008 and renewed it for five years in 2012. "Short-term extensions are not the long-term answer either, as they fail to provide certainty, and will create needless and wasteful operational complications," said the intelligence heads in their statement. Most members of Congress support renewing the law on the grounds of combating terrorism but some on the far right and left have joined forces to try to restrict it, citing concerns that US citizens could be caught up in the overseas spying program. By law, communications by US citizens cannot be legally intercepted and used except with a judge's warrant, unlike foreigners living overseas who do not benefit from the same constitutional protections as Americans.
  10. Apple is reportedly working on modems with Intel for 5G support on future iPhones. The report comes from Fast Company and suggests that Apple engineers are already working with engineers from Intel to develop modems that can support faster speeds than 4G/LTE. © Intel Apple is reducing work with Qualcomm and have started exploring other options for modem needs. Apple and Qualcomm have engaged in numerous lawsuits in the past and it seems like Apple has had enough of it. The report does not detail the identity of the source; however, Intel just announced that they have “successfully completed a full end-to-end 5G call based on its early 5G silicon, a key milestone in its development.” © MensXP/Naasir Jamaal Qualcomm has already been developing 5G modems and many have pointed out that the San Diego company is the early leader. However, according to Fast Company, Qualcomm's technology will “not be widely adopted by carriers.” The report goes on to say that Apple believes Intel's 5G modem fits their requirements for a future iPhone. © MensXP/Naasir Jamaal If Intel supplies Apple with 5G modems, it could change Intel's fortunes and may just bring Intel back to top in the modem game. The report says that “Intel has lagged far behind Qualcomm in the modem market but has a small army working on 5G, numbering in the “multiple thousands,” the source estimates. The initiative to provide 5G modem for the iPhone is now considered a “must-win” for Intel.” A 5G modem will let smartphones achieve gigabit speeds; however, in order to make the technology ready for the mass market, many technical upgrades will be required from carriers and smartphone manufacturers. Intel has already been supplying Apple with modems since the iPhone 7 and it seems like the two companies are going to work hand in hand for some time to come. Apple's relationship with Qualcomm is becoming tenser by the day and Apple is already working towards iPhones that will be completely free of Qualcomm technology.
  11. Silicon Valley giant Intel on Wednesday announced plans for a fleet of self-driving cars following its completion of the purchase of Israeli autonomous technology firm Mobileye. A day after closing the $15 billion deal to buy Mobileye, which specializes in driver-assistance systems, Intel said it will begin rolling out fully autonomous vehicles later this year for testing in Europe, Israel, and the US. The fleet will eventually have more than 100 vehicles, according to Intel. The testing in real-world conditions "provides immediate feedback and will accelerate delivery of technologies and solutions for highly and fully autonomous vehicles," said Mobileye co-founder Amnon Shashua, who is to run the unit for Intel. "Our goal is to develop autonomous vehicle technology that can be deployed anywhere." The Intel test fleet with include various types and makes of vehicles, and capitalize on Mobileye's expertise in computer vision, mapping and sensing. Intel, which has been expanding beyond its core of computer chipmaking, is keen for its technology to be an engine powering self-driving systems across the spectrum of vehicle makers. "We want to enable automakers to deliver driverless cars faster while reducing costs," Shashua said. Intel said the vehicles would offer "level 4" autonomy, which under industry standards represents a "high" level of autonomy just below the fully automated level 5. Most major automakers and several other technology firms have been stepping up efforts on autonomous driving in recent years, contending these systems will eliminate the vast majority of road accidents. Apple has a testing permit in California. German luxury carmaker Daimler and auto parts supplier Bosch have announced plans to work together to create completely driverless cars in the next few years. US-based Tesla boasts that all its models are built with the hardware for self-driving in event regulators five the technology a green light. US car rental giant Avis Budget earlier this year announced it will team up with Waymo on the self-driving cars being tested on Arizona roads.
  12. Chipmaker Intel Corp raised its full-year revenue and profit forecasts on higher expectations for its mainstay personal computer business and growth in newer areas such as artificial intelligence and autonomous driving. Shares of the world's largest chipmaker, which also beat second-quarter estimates, were up 1.3 percent in after-hours trading on Thursday. Intel has been grappling with a declining PC industry it helped found and has been pushing into making chips that power data centers and also into autonomous vehicle technology. The company agreed in March to buy autonomous vehicle technology firm Mobileye NV, thrusting Intel into the forefront of the market. Intel expects to close the Mobileye purchase in the current quarter, several months earlier than expected, Chief Executive Brian Krzanich said on a post-earnings call on Thursday. The company is also benefiting from lower-than-expected declines in personal computer shipments. Worldwide shipments of traditional PCs were down 3.3 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, slightly better than expectations of a 3.9 percent decline, research firm IDC said this month. Revenue in Intel's client computing, the biggest contributor to sales and which supplies chips to PC makers, rose 12 percent to $8.21 billion. Analysts had expected $7.88 billion, according to financial data and analytics firm FactSet. "My biggest takeaway was kind of surprise with how strong the PC side of business was in a market where PC units appear to be declining in the 3 percent to 4 percent range every year," said Edward Jones analyst Dave Heger. Revenue from the data center business, a focus for the company, rose 9 percent to $4.37 billion, but missed expectation of $4.41 billion, according to FactSet. The company's Internet of Things business grew 26 percent to $720 million. Intel said it expected full-year adjusted earnings to be $3 per share, plus or minus 5 percent, or $2.85 to $3.15. The new forecast is 15 cents higher than the previous estimate. Intel also increased its full-year revenue forecast by $1.3 billion to $61.3 billion, plus or minus $500 million. Analysts on average were expecting earnings of $2.86 per share and revenue of $60.22 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. On an adjusted basis, Intel earned 72 cents per share in the second quarter, ahead of analysts' estimate of 68 cents. Adjusted for certain items, revenue was $14.76 billion, ahead of estimates of $14.41 billion.
  13. Elmar Degenhart, CEO of German tyre company Continental, poses for the media before the annual news conference in Hanover, Germany March 2, 2017. PHOTO: REUTERS Continental said on Tuesday it would join a self-driving platform developed by BMW, Intel and Mobileye with the German auto parts and tire maker handling integration of components and software. The costs to integrate hardware, software and data and the accelerating pace of development of self-driving vehicles has sparked a growing number of alliances between automakers and suppliers. Continental, the world's second-biggest supplier to carmakers by sales, said it would play a key role in commercialising the new platform, which is to be sold to other auto manufacturers. "We can meet the steep demands in autonomous driving through an industry-wide collaboration more comprehensively, rapidly and at lower costs than by going alone," Chief Executive Elmar Degenhart said in an emailed statement. BMW already last year joined forces with US chipmaker Intel and Mobileye, the Israeli vision system and mapping expert on the self-driving platform, which is targeted for production in 2021. U.S. parts maker Delphi Automotive has since joined the tie-up. In April, Germany's Daimler formed a similar alliance with supplier Robert Bosch [ROBG.UL] to speed development of self-driving vehicles. "I think Wendy's woke them up," he said.
