I have here forsale a stunning Black & White themed X99 Gaming PC, able to handle the latest games while looking as good as it performs. Built around the Intel Core i7-5930K CPU, KFA2 GeForce GTX1070 Hall Of Fame Edition 8GB (8192MB) GDDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card and housed in the stunning Corsair 750D Airflow Edition case with window makes this system a centre piece to anyone’s gaming setup.

The system is very well spec’d; the combination of a Intel i7 5930K 6-Core 12-Thread CPU, X99 platform and the amazing factory overclocked KFA2 GeForce GTX1070 Hall Of Fame Edition 8GB graphics card means that even the most recent titles play at great frame rates with plenty of eye candy. The system is well cooled by the Corsair 750D Airflow Edition case with an array of temperature controlled Corsair fans along with a Corsair H110i Hydro cooler for the CPU mounted in the roof.

The motherboard being a premium model provides loads of connectivity options; 10 USB 3.0 ports (AKA USB 3.1 Gen 1), 2 USB 2.0 ports, optical & 3.5mm jacks for audio. The system also features an external ASUS Wi-Fi GO! Module which gives you both wireless 802.11ac (and below) along with Bluetooth 4.0 (ideal for the new Bluetooth XBox controllers). The module itself is attached to the rear via a wire so it offers great flexibility in where you want the antenna placed. It can be adjusted and positioned away from the system to provide the best signal. Finally the graphics card offers all the connectivity options you could want with 3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI and 1 x DVI-D as well as support for 4K and below monitors, G-Sync, SLI, DirectX 12 and more.

Everything has been professionally assembled, cable managed, checked and load tested. I’ve sold hundreds of systems over the years and everyone has been very happy with their purchases. I’m more than happy to assist with any warranty claims in the unlikely event there are issues in the future as well as offer free tech support for the life of the system via e-mail or IM. Warranty length is at least 1 year on all of the parts, longer on many. For a full list of warranty expiry dates please get in touch.

All the parts are in superb condition, the Corsair H110i and KFA2 GeForce GTX1070 HOF are brand new and have only seen a handful of hours use. All the parts have at least one year of warranty left, many of them have much more.

The system comes with a copy of Windows 10 64Bit Professional, which has been freshly installed on a recently secure erased SSD. The operating system has been activated and the key will be provided. Everything has been updated with the latest security patches, BIOS releases, firmware and drivers so it is ready to use right out of the box. All you need to provide to complete the system is a monitor, keyboard and mouse and you are ready to go! All of the parts have their original packaging which can be either be taken by the buyer or recycled as per their wishes. The manuals, paperwork and accessories will be included with the system regardless unless they are not required.

Researchers hack iOS 11 at Mobile Pwn2Own 2017

Security researchers competing at Mobile Pwn2Own 2017 were able to hack various smartphones, including Apple’s brand new iOS 11.1 software.

Apple released iOS 11.1 on Halloween and the operating system was hacked multiple times at Zero Day Initiative’s (ZDI) Mobile Pwn2Own on Nov. 1 and 2. Tencent Keen Security Lab did the most damage at the competition with two successful hacks of iOS 11 running on an iPhone 7.

On day one of Mobile Pwn2Own, the Keen Lab team was able to successfully load a rogue application and have it persist through a reboot with a WiFi exploit that used a total of four different vulnerabilities to execute. It is unknown what bugs were used, but Apple had previously confirmed the recently disclosed KRACK WiFi flaw was patched in iOS 11.1, so this would have been a different WiFi issue.

However, one of the bugs used by Keen Lab on day one was also used by Qihoo 360 Security, of China, in a WiFi hack on iOS 11.1 on day two. Dustin Childs, in charge of ZDI communications for Trend Micro, said this was a surprising event.

“After a successful demonstration, things got a bit murky in the disclosure room. 360 Security used three separate bugs to exploit WiFi on the iPhone, but one of the bugs was submitted in a previous attempt in the contest by a different competitor,” Childs wrote in a blog post. “While the intrigue of a bug collision is certainly interesting, let’s not overlook the fact that 360 Security demonstrated an exploit that exfiltrated data from an iPhone just by connecting it to a WiFi network.”

On day one, Keen Lab also separately hacked iOS 11 by exploiting a Safari browser bug and a system service flaw in order to get its rogue application to persist through a reboot. For its efforts at Mobile Pwn2Own, Keen Lab earned a total of $155,000.

Richard Zhu, security researcher also known as fluorescence, successfully exploited a Safari browser flaw and another bug to escape the iOS sandbox and execute code, earning $25,000.

Mobile Pwn2Own 2017 roundup

Itzhak “Zuk” Avraham, founder of Zimperium, Inc., said on Twitter it’s important for users to realize even new and updated phones are at risk.

“If mobile pwn2own this year tells us one thing: phones are totally insecure. Not even speaking about old/outdated phones. This is the golden age for offensive security companies. If you care about your data, prepare accordingly,” Avraham wrote on Twitter. “If multiple groups were able to hack so many different models remotely, including multiple baseband submissions, we, as users, are in trouble. Unfortunately, this is totally aligned with what I’m personally seeing in the wild.”

In total, day one of Mobile Pwn2Own 2017 had five successful hack attempts across various devices and two failed attempts, while day two had six more attempts which were all successful.

ZDI said Mobile Pwn2Own 2017 was its largest mobile contest ever with a total of 32 unique bugs submitted. The 11 successful attacks came against the Samsung Galaxy S8, Huawei Mate9 Pro and Apple iPhone 7.

Lukas Stefanko, malware researcher at ESET, noted one major smartphone was not hacked during the competition.

PUBG Coming to Xbox One on December 12, 2017

Xbox fans, we know you’ve been waiting and we’re so excited to finally be able to say it – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is coming to Xbox One as a console launch exclusive through the Xbox Game Preview program on December 12, 2017!

We shared this news at Paris Games Week today, where Brendan Greene – aka PlayerUnknown – and I opened the Xbox booth with Aaron Greenberg, General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing.

Beginning December 12, Xbox fans will be able to play PUBG while it’s still in early access through the Xbox Game Preview program. We’re approaching development on Xbox One with the same community-driven focus that we’ve taken with the game on PC. As a result, the ultimate battle royale experience that fans play on Xbox One will be slightly different than what players know today on PC.

In addition to announcing Xbox’s XGP launch date on December 12, we also shared the exciting news that we’re on track to launch 1.0 for the PC version in late December.  This has been an amazing year for us and launching both 1.0 on PC and on Xbox through Xbox Game Preview are huge milestones for the team. I’m incredibly proud of how far we’ve come in such a short time, but I’m even more excited to say that we’re just getting started.

Both versions are being developed at the same time, but they both have their own separate roadmaps. Various Xbox One features and functionality will change and come online over time just like they have on PC, with our goal being to have both versions align to each other as soon as possible. Feedback as you know has been critical to the game’s success, so beginning December 12 we want to hear from Xbox fans on what they think about PUBG and how we can make the best version of the game possible.

PUBG Xbox XGP The Warrior Pack

In celebration of PUBG’s upcoming launch on Xbox One, we’ve collaborated closely with the team at Xbox to create three special, limited-edition cosmetic packs – the PUBG Warrior Pack, the PUBG Accessory Pack and the PUBG Tracksuit Pack. These packs are exclusive to Xbox fans as standalone offers available for a limited time and as there are no plans to feature any in-game purchases in the Xbox Game Preview version, are the only items that can be purchased during the preview period. We’re super excited to be able to bring these to Xbox One fans who have been eagerly awaiting the game as a special thank you for your patience and passion for PUBG. We’ll be sharing more details on timing and pricing in the weeks ahead.

If you are attending Paris Games Week, be sure to come by the Xbox booth and check out “The Wall.” We’ve set up a massive 50-person gameplay experience where players can come battle it out in a series of live matches that will be nothing short of epic. Having everybody in a match together all in one room is really special and is going to be a lot of fun.

Thank you to the entire PUBG community for providing feedback and making our game such a success already. We’re working hard with our partners at Microsoft to bring PUBG as a console launch exclusive on Xbox One through the Xbox Game Preview program, and we can’t wait to meet you on the island on December 12!

Box Skills, machine learning technology pique IT interest

SAN FRANCISCO — Box shops will be able to help users gain more intelligent insight into their content with new machine learning technology in the content management tool.

Box Skills, introduced here at the company’s annual BoxWorks conference, makes it easier to search for visual and audio content and view information about it. Box Feed uses machine learning to curate content for specific users. Plus, new features in Box Relay aim to improve employee workflows. These capabilities caught the interest of attendees at the show.

“It was kind of nice to see Box incorporating [AI] to start relaying things to certain people at the right time in the right place,” said Ryan Foltz, business systems engineer at Barnhardt Manufacturing Company in Charlotte, N.C.

How Box Skills works

Box Skills is a framework that serves as a layer of abstraction between the content organizations upload to Box and the machine learning. It focuses on three areas: Image Intelligence, Audio Intelligence and Video Intelligence.

With the Image Intelligence component, based on Google Cloud Platform technology, Box automatically tags aspects of an image such as the subject, colors and logos, as well as uploads any text from it. Users can click the tags to access other images with similar contents.

The whole workflow looks really nice.
Will Sheppardtechnical support specialist, The Enthusiast Network

Video Intelligence uses Microsoft Cognitive Services to provide facial recognition to identify people in a video. It also can show users where repeated phrases come up, and extracts a transcript of the video that users can apply as closed captioning. Audio Intelligence functions similarly, without the visual aspect, and is based on IBM Watson technology.

Using the new Box Skills Kit for developers, organizations can also customize what information within a file the machine learning technology tracks. The tool can track tone of voice in a phone conversation, for example, or pull out specific words a company is interested in and show within the Box content when those words were said. Developers can also customize information in documents such as invoices or contracts, and have Box extract information such as dates, signatures, payment amounts and vendor names. That not only extracts the data, but allows users to fill that information in automatically moving forward.

Image Intelligence is currently in beta, and Video Intelligence and Audio Intelligence will come to beta in 2018, Box said.

Box Feed puts relevant information in front of users

Box Feed, powered by Box Graph machine learning technology, was also previewed at the conference and will be available next year. This feature can help users find the content most relevant to them. It shows users active content — files they have been working on or are mentioned in — as well as other relevant content, which appears in a feed based on who is working on the file and what the content is. If a user generally collaborates with another user who is working on a document, for example, it will likely show up in the relevant section. It also shows trending files, or ones that many users throughout the organization are accessing. 

As interesting as these new features are, some companies might need some time to apply them. Barnhardt Manufacturing Company, for instance, is an old organization, but its leaders are getting more and more interested in business data intelligence, said Pete Chantry, application systems manager at the company.

 “We’ve got to allow a little bit of time for them to get accustomed to the basic [enterprise content management] features of Box,” Chantry said.

Updates to Box Relay

Box Relay for workflow automation, announced last year and generally available next month, will get some enhancements as well.

First, the add-on will allow workflows to launch automatically, so if a user uploads a resume of a prospective employee for example, the workflow associated with that kind of document will start automatically. Box also plans to release APIs so IT can integrate Relay with existing third-party applications and automated processes. In addition, users will be able to e-sign documents directly in Box. Finally, a new dashboard will let users manage multiple workflows at the same time by showing every active workflow and what step it is on.   

“I like the way that all ties together,” said Will Sheppard, technical support specialist at The Enthusiast Network based in Los Angeles. “The whole workflow looks really nice.”

Other new features in Box Relay include the ability to invite other users to edit a document and assign them tasks with due dates within the document. There is also a new annotation tool that allows users to write a comment on a specific aspect of a document and tag other users to look at that exact area.

In addition, users no longer have to download previous versions of a document; they can preview them with a single click. Plus, when a user accesses a document, Box will highlight any changes that other users have made since the last time he was in it, and show which user made the edits. Finally, users can thread comments and mark them as resolved.   

Like Box Skills, Relay presents some enticing features for IT, but those at Barnhardt Manufacturing Company are unsure of how to apply Relay immediately.

“I don’t know how often we’d use it, but if we had it, it’d certainly be a nice feature for us,” Foltz said.
