Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

Synology NAS Devices Hacked to Mine Dogecoin

Send Article to a Friend

Attackers are taking advantage of an older vulnerability (patched in February 2014) to mine the Dogecoin virtual currency (an offshoot of Bitcoin that originally began as a joke). One German attacker managed to mine over $600,000 of Dogecoin from Synology boxes. It’s yet another reason why you shouldn’t enable remote administration on your devices unless absolutely necessary.Generic Globefollow link
