The ban came from China’s Central Government Procurement Center, which posted a brief notice last Friday on new requirements for government tenders.

Whether spending on a completely new or upgraded system, access authentication system costs are brutal.

Despite the amped up "sophisticated" security and clock-in systems enterprises currently spend too much money on, many organizations remain vulnerable to security threats, including human error and hackers.

It is the software that Microsoft has not patched this month that is probably of greatest interest to attackers.

Dropbox has disabled old shared document links in a bid to prevent its users’ files from being accessed by unintended recipients.

Before the change, anyone in possession of a Dropbox shared document link could access the file it pointed to, but the documents were inaccessible to those without the link, a form of security through obscurity.

They spread lies. They push products you don’t care about. They make unpopular people look popular. Sometimes, they take over your machine with malware.
