For Sale – Gaming PC

For sale here is a gaming pc that can play all the latest games like Overwatch, Battlegrounds, Pro evolution soccer 2017 etc.

I built this to use as a streaming pc and a backup gaming pc.

I don’t stream much anymore so I’ve decided to sell it on to someone who wants to get into gaming or just wants a better PC to play the latest games.

The graphics card was bought two months in July so will come with receipt.

So here’s the specs for the PC:

Processor and cooler: AMD FX 8320 o.c to 4.4Ghz + Hyper 212 Evo Cooler
Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard
RAM: 16gb Crucial Ballistix 1600mhz ram, never o.c
Graphics Card: Gigabyte GTX 1050ti 4GB GDDR5
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400 case + LED strip
Power supply: Corsair 500w
Hard drive: 500gb

The motherboard and case are almost ‘future proof’, which means that if you decide to upgrade any of the parts in the future, or add extra parts like SSDs or HDDs, you won’t be limited by the case or motherboard.

The motherboard can accomodate many different processors and has plenty of USB 3.0 ports. The case comes with many slots for SSDs and HDDs and has a cool LED light that you can customize to whatever colour you want.

This PC includes a fully licensed version of Windows 10 Professional.

I can have the tower delivered to you for extra cost, it’ll be packaged carefully with a lot of bubble wrap and a strong box.

If you have any questions just drop a reply below and I’ll get back you quickly.

Price and currency: £520
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: BT
Location: Leics.

Proof-of-concept iOS exploit released by Google’s Project Zero

A security researcher for Google’s Project Zero team has released a proof-of-concept iOS exploit that takes advantage of another Broadcom Wi-Fi issue.

The vulnerability abused by Gal Beniamini, a security researcher for Google Project Zero based in Israel, was found in the same Broadcom BCM4355C0 Wi-Fi chips affected by the Broadpwn flaw, but is separate. Beniamini confirmed the Broadcom flaw (CVE-2017-11120) affects a range of devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and various Wi-Fi routers, but the exploit he released was specifically for the iPhone 7.

Beniamini wrote in his disclosure that the BCM4355C0 SoC with firmware version 9.44.78.27.0.1.56 did not validate a specific field properly and an iOS exploit could allow code execution and more.

“The exploit gains code execution on the Wi-Fi firmware on the iPhone 7,” Beniamini wrote. “Upon successful execution of the exploit, a backdoor is inserted into the firmware, allowing remote read/write commands to be issued to the firmware via crafted action frames (thus allowing easy remote control over the Wi-Fi chip).”

However, Beniamini’s proof-of-concept iOS exploit requires knowledge of the MAC address of the target device, which may make using this attack in the wild more difficult.

Beniamini said his iOS exploit was tested against the Wi-Fi firmware in iOS 10.2 “but should work on all versions of iOS up to 10.3.3.”

Apple has patched against this iOS exploit in iOS 11 and Google patched the same Broadcom flaw in its September Security Update for Android. Users are urged to update if possible.

Microsoft’s David Forstrom Foresees the Invisible and Inevitable Augmentation of AI

A future in which artificial intelligence has become so pervasive that it’s invisible and bots, rather than people, lead our service experiences is the stuff of sci-fi movies. But that future isn’t so far off and, in fact, might not be as scary as we think, says Microsoft’s David Forstrom.

Under the leadership of CEO Satya Nadella, Microsoft wants to break boundaries in AI technology, says Forstrom, who BizTech Managing Editor Ann Longmore-Etheridge chatted with at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Fla.

Forstrom, director of AI communications, talked about the evolution of the technology, how Microsoft has begun embedding it into products, such as Office and Cortana, and how it can become a go-to tool for small businesses.

BIZTECH: Why is artificial intelligence important, and what has led to its increased importance in the workplace?

Forstrom: AI addresses the ultimate barrier that we face as humans: information and our limited capacity to absorb and act on it.

What has exploded in the last few years is three things: the cloud, which makes data accessible to the world; two, data — enormous amounts of it; and three, advanced algorithms. We’ve had huge breakthroughs from a research perspective just the last couple years that have allowed us to do things like achieve 96 percent accuracy in image detection or human parity in speech recognition.

We’ve even been able to integrate translation into Skype and now into productivity products like Office and PowerPoint.

BIZTECH: What are some real-world use cases that demonstrate how Cortana can be a valuable tool for small businesses?

Forstrom: We’re busy professionals, and Cortana, because it has access to our information, can see if we have made commitments. So, if I have emailed someone and said, “Let’s revisit this topic in three months,” or “Let’s plan to get together about this in a few weeks,” Cortana will actually remind me and say, “I see you made this commitment. Do you want to schedule a meeting for that?” Or, “It looks like you’re going to need to prepare a document for this meeting.”

Another one is calendaring. Let’s say you’re a small business working with partners and vendors, and rather than going to each individual and saying, “Can we meet next Wednesday? What times do you have open?” you can invoke Cortana to assist with that.

Cortana will look at those people’s calendars and availability, and come back with a meeting time that suits everyone. Or, it may say, “Everyone is available at this time, except for one person. Do you want to proceed with scheduling this block of time?”

Cortana is going to evolve into a personal assistant — a true person assistant. If you think about the practices of a personal assistant in real physical life, it’s extending that into the digital realm. It can be available to you throughout your workday, from home to your small business and back home. It’s still early days, though, for Cortana in business.

BIZTECH: If you’re a small business with limited resources to invest in AI technology, what is your best game plan?

Forstrom: I think businesses right now are recognizing that AI is here to stay. It’s not a flash in the pan. In some shape or form, it will be infused into most of our interactions and our technologies.

Small businesses, first of all, need to look at what problems they’re solving for. A good example of how AI can help is bots, which are something many small businesses are entertaining right now to incorporate into their customer service and engagement.

We did a lot of surveying and research across the Seattle area, talking to a lot of businesses, small and large, about how they could see using bots. In one case, in talking with a restaurant owner, it became clear that the hosts were answering phone calls all the time: people calling wanting to know the hours, or the menu, or about gluten-free options, things like that. If the owner was able to implement a simple rules-based bot — if this question, then this answer — that could completely free up the staff to focus on core things they need to be doing to add more value.

Another area that we see small businesses incorporating AI is in the realm of cognitive services. If a business has a product or solution where they could implement computer vision or natural language understanding, where they are doing a lot of textual interaction with customers — those are fairly cheap. It requires a bit of developer and IT knowledge, but it’s low-level. This is low in cost, compared to complex deep-learning models of AI.

BIZTECH: Microsoft recently bought Hexadite, which underscores the growing role of automation in countering security threats. How do you think that automation will improve cybersecurity, and how will it affect the role of humans?

Forstrom: First and foremost is our principle that AI must augment humanity. Security is certainly one of these spaces we see intersecting quite rapidly with AI, and that’s because it’s all about data and the intelligent insights that you can glean out of that data to make decisions across your security portfolio.

Machines trained through deep learning models will be able to process our knowledge of a potential threat and be able to reach a conclusive decision on actions to be taken. But it’s still humans who are being amplified because it’s humans that are making the decisions at the C suite level or the chief security officer level in terms of, “How do we act on that?”

BIZTECH: Speculatively, in five to 10 years, what is the business environment for AI going to look like?

Forstrom: You can think about it like electricity: It’s all around us, totally pervasive in our lives; it manifests to power our devices and things like that. But we don’t talk or think about it. It just happens. It’s there. And it betters my life and enables me to do more.

That’s the future that we see with AI, especially when you get 10 years or further out. The office of the future will be an AI-infused environment, where we benefit from all of these features and functionality, but we don’t think about them anymore.

There are already AI-driven features in PowerPoint and Microsoft Word that are being used, but users don’t recognize that as AI. It’s just the product.

We’ll really start to see a shift away from some of the fears of today, that AI will cause a sort of dystopian environment, to where people realize it does better their lives and increases their productivity.
