Tech News Hub: WEEKLY NEWS ROUNDUP
Welcome to another session of Tech News Hub: Weekly News Roundup. In this session, we have a bunch of exciting news as usual.
Kicking off with “Nvidia hacker leak 190GB of data, including software updates and sensitive information.” The news came in as early on March 4th when cybercriminal group Lapsus$ reported the incident. Around 190GB of data was compromised, and hackers asked for ransom. The same hacker group is responsible for Saming data breach, breaking TrustZone (TEE) TEE OS (QSEE) services.
Lapsus$ group is famous for its cybercrimes related to data leaks. Nvidia, one of the largest graphics chip makers, was compromised for quite some time when hackers managed to gather crucial data that can directly route to customers. The file was later uploaded on torrent in their Telegram group.
Confidential information includes Trusted Applet (T.A.), biometric algorithms, bootloader source code, QUALCOMM source codes, API and service data, among many others. Do follow up with the whole story to learn more.
We covered the much-anticipated Apple event in the second story on March 8. The event covered the new iPhone S.E. 3 with A15 Bionic processor, two new greenish colours for 13 and 13 pros, Mac Studio, iPad Air, Apple Pro Display XDR, Mac Mini, etc. Apple did something different this year with their computing lineup M1 chip. On Mac Mini, they bridged two M1 chips together with 65 per cent efficiency and doubled the power.
The third story at Tech News Hub was targeted to “wartime conflict within Enterprise I.T. zone: No script required.” War, as we know, is not about tanks and guns anymore. Still, it affects every infrastructure that holds a country together. Enterprise I.T. is going through a lot as the world is spectating an ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. Here we took a deeper dive into the conflict of Enterprise I.T. solution and more.
One of our weekly highlights is indeed Intel’s comeback plan with Mobileye. Mobileye was brought by intel in 2016 as the company was shifting its concentration towards other parts of the business. The autonomous sector is booming, and Intel was expecting something new. The collaboration came in early as the U.S. Securities ACT powers the following “no financial details of the IPO are to be made for public consumption.” Learn more from our full story.
Our fifth story was on “ZTE called in the U.S. Court for allegedly breaking trade sanctions.” A former ZTE employee was accused of conspiring to bring nationals to the U.S. The Chinese telecom equipment maker conducted hundreds of shippings containing the same equipment as the U.S. ones. The U.S. had trade sanctions as it poses security threats supplying the same equipment overseas. A Georgia Tech University professor Gee-Kung Chang helped illegal Chinese citizens to enter the country, which is whole different news and has no link with the ZTE shipping by breaking sanctions. Court rulings will come pretty soon.
Microsoft, on the other hand, is doing something fascinating. No, it’s not a new product launch but revamping the old tech community. The MSIX Tech Community was long due to massive updates from the Microsoft community, and it is finally here. The MSIX ms-app installer will gain further updates as it was much needed. Good job, Microsoft!
The last story consists of “service-led businesses.” The State of Partner Profitability Study brings in fascinating statics. Managed services providers (MSPs) extended service providers (XSP) are routing their revenue portfolio from product-led services to software-led services. Due to the effect of coronavirus, it is easier to supply adequate manpower in I.T. and software rather than selling subscriptions. The Channel Company, CRN CEO, and three other established partners conducted the research. More on our full story.
