Intel отваря завод за $2.5 млрд. в Китай

Днес главният изпълнителен директор на Intel Пол Отелини потвърди слуховете, че водещият производител на чипове започва строежа на нов завод в Китай. Той ще се намира в североизточната част на страната, в пристанищния град Далиан в провинцията Лияонинг. Компанията ще инвестира около $2.5 млрд. долара в новото съоръжение, като се очаква сериозна финансова помощ и от китайското правителство. Очаква се той да бъде напълно готов в средата на 2010 година. Тогава заводът ще започне да произвежда чипове използвайки 65 нм технология върху 300 мм подложки. Китайското правителство отдавна се стреми да привлече подобни големи проекти, предлагайки привлекателни условия за инвеститорите.

Vista less secure than XP

Security company Kaspersky claimed that Vista’s User Account Control (UAC), the system of user privileges that can be used to restrict users’ administrative rights, will be so annoying that users will disable it.

Natalya Kaspersky, the company’s chief executive, said that without UAC, Vista will be less secure than Windows XP SP2. „There’s a question mark if Vista security has improved, or has really dropped down,“ she said to our sister site ZDNet UK at the CeBIT show in Hanover last week.

Kaspersky provides one of the scanning engines in ForeFront, Microsoft’s business security product.

Arno Edelmann, business security product manager for Microsoft, said that Kaspersky’s claims were surprising. „We have a thriving community of partners, and Kasperky is one of our best partners,“ Edelmann told ZDNet UK. „I find their statements a little strange because they have one of the best insights into Microsoft security products.“

After being roundly criticised over its security strategy in the past, Microsoft has done a lot of work to improve its approach and has been touting Vista as its most secure operating system. But Kaspersky confirmed that her analysts had found five ways to bypass Vista’s UAC, and that malware writers will find more security holes.

Kaspersky also added her voice to Symantec and McAfee complaints that PatchGuard, designed to protect the Vista kernel, is hindering security companies’ work.

„PatchGuard doesn’t allow legitimate security vendors to do what we used to do,“ said Kaspersky.

Symantec has claimed that PatchGuard is hurting security vendors more than it was hurting malware writers. Bruce McCorkendale, a chief engineer at Symantec, said: „There are types of security policies and next-generation security products that can only work through some of the mechanisms that PatchGuard prohibits.“

Eugene Kaspersky, the company founder, said last Thursday that while vendors had to interact with Vista legitimately, hackers were under no such constraints.

„Cybercriminals seem not to care about Vista licensing,“ said Eugene Kaspersky. „They don’t need to follow regulations or be certified by Microsoft – antivirus vendors do.“

Can a Rootkit Be Certified for Vista?

Forget what Microsoft says about Vista being the most secure version of Windows yet. More to the point, what do the hackers think of it? In a nutshell, they think it’s an improvement, but at the end of the day, it’s just like everything else they dissect—that is, breakable.
„Not all bugs are being detected by Vista,“ pointed out famed hacker H.D. Moore. „Look at how a hacker gets access to the driver: Right now I’m working on Microsoft’s automated process to get Metasploit-certified. It [only] costs $500.“
Moore is the founder of the Metasploit Project and a core developer of the Metasploit Framework—the leading open-source exploit development platform—and is also director of security research at BreakingPoint Systems. The irony of his statement lies in the idea that Vista trusts Microsoft-certified programs—programs that can include a hacker exploit platform that walks through the front door for a mere $500 and a conveyor-belt approval process.
