A new computer virus, which can infect hundreds of thousands of devices

Post by Admin on Wed Feb 17, 2016 2:02 am

Experts have discovered a new vulnerability of a computer, from which hundreds of thousands of electronic devices, applications and services could potentially be affected.

It is unclear how serious the threat is. Some experts believe that it could lead to disaster. Some of them are convinced that the threat can be dealt with.

The problem described in its Google blog experts. Attackers are using widely used computer code to gain control over a user's device. The problem was found in an open database glibc- different codes, which are used in devices that are connected to the Internet.

The same code is the basis of many programming languages, for example, PHP or Python. This poses a potential threat to a number of sites and services - hackers can hack into a significant part of global virtual systems or to gain control over them.

Google engineers in conjunction with the security experts of Red Hat developed a software that can solve the problem.

The problem is that is not known exactly how many systems and devices using this code, and thus exposed to the threat. In the security area are Android devices that do not use the library. Also outside the risk zone of the operating system Windows, and OS X.
