FCC: LEO ISPs A-OK
Saturday, 24 June 2017 08:11

America's broadband watchdog, the FCC, has approved OneWeb's proposal to launch an ISP on the backs of 720 orbiting satellites.

The regulator said it would allow the ISP to offer its service in the US once it makes good on the plan to send 720 satellites into low earth orbit (LEO) and bounce data transmissions around the world.

The research, conducted by market research agency Opinion Leader using focus groups in London, Sheffield and Swansea, found that the majority of participants were confused about what "fibre" meant.

Alternative network providers Gigaclear, Hyperoptic and Cityfibre have presented the findings to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which is currently reviewing advertising of broadband services labelled as fibre.

Thursday, 22 June 2017 17:02

We all know the only thing more fun than a WebEx conference is a recorded WebEx conference, which is why WebEx Network Recording Player exists – and if you use it, you need to patch it.

Switchzilla's 23-patch Wednesday Whack-a-Mole includes fixes for multiple buffer overrun WebEx vulnerabilities.

The WebEx vulns can be exploited by sending a victim an Advanced Recording Format (ARF) file. If they're the kind of tragic who can be convinced to spend part of their life replaying a Web conference, their machine will crash, opening the gate to remote code execution.
