For Sale – HP ENVY x360 15.6″ for sale or trade

Hi,

Model No: 15-aq100na

I have a HP Envy X360 laptop which is less than a year old. It is the 15.6″ screen version which is too bulky for me. I’m looking to sell or trade for a portable type 13.3″ laptop of a similar spec such as the smaller HP Envy or Surface or something similar but still powerful enough for multi-tasking, slim line, SSD, Windows 10 etc.

I don’t have the box anymore unfortunately so it will only come with a charge cable. I will make use of another laptop box for delivery though. The outer case has a few marks from use which I can take a photo of if there is interest. The inside, including the screen is in excellent condition. It’s a really nice laptop with a great touch screen and speakers but unfortunately I’m after something I can use for work which is portable.

Laptop specs,

  • Folds all the way back on itself for tablet mode;
  • Touchscreen;
  • 15.6 inch
  • 240gb SSD Drive (I’ve changed the 1tb HD/128gb SSD to a new SSD drive)
  • Intel Core i5 2.5 GHZ processor
  • 8GB RAM
  • HDMI Port
  • 2 x USB
  • 1 x USC
  • SD Card Reader
  • Aluminium body, silver
  • backlit keyboard (very nice!)
  • Bang and Olufsen Speakers
  • Windows 10 installed
  • HP Charger

Let me know if you have a portable laptop and you are after something with a bigger screen.

Price and currency: £450
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: Paypal
Location: Chepstow

WannaMine cryptojacker targets unpatched EternalBlue flaw

New research detailed successful cryptojacking attacks by WannaMine malware after almost one year of warnings about this specific cryptominer and more than a year and a half  of warnings about the EternalBlue exploit.

The Cybereason Nocturnus research team and Amit Serper, head of security research for the Boston-based cybersecurity company, discovered a new outbreak of the WannaMine cryptojacker, which the researchers said gains access to computer systems “through an unpatched [Server Message Block, or SMB] service and gains code execution with high privileges” to spread to more systems.

Serper noted in a blog post that neither WannaMine nor the EternalBlue exploit are new, but they are still taking advantage of those unpatched SMB services, even though Microsoft patched against EternalBlue in March 2017.

“Until organizations patch and update their computers, they’ll continue to see attackers use these exploits for a simple reason: they lead to successful campaigns,” Serper wrote in the blog post. “Part of giving the defenders an advantage means making the attacker’s job more difficult by taking steps to boost an organization’s security. Patching vulnerabilities, especially the ones associated with EternalBlue, falls into this category.”

It is fair to say that any unpatched system with SMB exposed to the internet has been compromised repeatedly and is definitely infected with one or more forms of malware.
Jake Williamsfounder and CEO, Rendition Infosec

The EternalBlue exploit was famously part of the Shadow Brokers dump of National Security Agency cyberweapons in April 2017; less than one month later, the WannaCry ransomware was sweeping the globe and infecting unpatched systems. However, that was only the beginning for EternalBlue.

EternalBlue was added into other ransomware, like GandCrab, to help it spread faster. It was morphed into Petya. And there were constant warnings for IT to patch vulnerable systems.

WannaMine was first spotted in October 2017 by Panda Security. And in January 2018, Sophos warned users that WannaMine was still active and preying on unpatched systems. According to researchers at ESET, the EternalBlue exploit saw a spike in use in April 2018.

Jake Williams, founder and CEO of Rendition Infosec, based in Augusta, Ga., said there are many ways threat actors may use EternalBlue in attacks.

“It is fair to say that any unpatched system with SMB exposed to the internet has been compromised repeatedly and is definitely infected with one or more forms of malware,” Williams wrote via Twitter direct message. “Cryptojackers are certainly one risk for these systems. These systems don’t have much power for crypto-mining (most lack dedicated GPUs), but when compromised en-masse they can generate some profit for the attacker. More concerning in some cases are the use of these systems for malware command and control servers and launching points for other attacks.”

Microsoft Hackathon 2018 winning team: ‘Think bigger – and believe you can change the world’ – Stories

The Hackathon, a company-wide event in its fifth year, had more than 23,500 global participants this year – twice the number from the first Hackathon in 2014. Hackers teamed up on more than 5,850 projects this year, up from 4,760 projects last year.

Winning projects have led to successes, including Seeing AI, the Xbox Adaptive Controller and Learning Tools, just a sampling of the projects initially driven by a team’s spark of passion. Motivation to participate in what is now the world’s largest private hackathon often comes from employees with family members or friends who are coping with various physical hardships, and who can be helped by technology.

The Hackathon began – and has continued – as a way to engage employees worldwide in both a learning culture and in a growth mindset, and to encourage great ideas from people in all roles  across the company.

“We’re getting better at hacking as a company, and we’re seeing a higher percentage of the projects that come out of the Hackathon that have potential business value to our company, which is exciting,” Ramos says.

While many people think hackathons are “just for dreaming up flying cars or smart toasters,” he says, many of the hackers say having fun is the No. 1 reason why they participate.

The winning team’s project “is a product that is a natural for Microsoft,” Ramos says. “It leverages our commitment as a platform and productivity company, and it capitalizes on something that we feel is unique to us.”

It’s “also an idea that this team has a passion for,” he says. “There are a lot of great ideas in the Hackathon – and so, when a great idea also meets up with a great team of people, that’s a nice combination as well.”
