Millions of websites affected by unpatched flaw in Microsoft IIS 6 web server - News - 1 hour 51 min ago

A proof-of-concept exploit has been published for an unpatched vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Information Services 6.0, a version of the web server that's no longer supported but still widely used.

The exploit allows attackers to execute malicious code on Windows servers running IIS 6.0 with the privileges of the user running the application. Extended support for this version of IIS ended in July 2015 along with support for its parent product, Windows Server 2003.

Even so, independent web server surveys suggest that IIS 6.0 still powers millions of public websites. In addition, many companies might still run web applications on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0 inside their corporate networks, so this vulnerability could help attackers perform lateral movement if they access such networks through other means.

Here's how Microsoft is helping companies build IoT hardware - News - 2 hours 18 min ago

One of the biggest challenges with building connected hardware is getting from proof-of-concept (PoC) prototypes to devices that are ready for large-scale production rollout.

Companies come into one of three Microsoft Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence (IoT/AI) Insider Labs with the hardware they’ve built so far and a plan for an intense two or three weeks of work. Visitors are paired with mentors who are experts in different areas and given access to machinery that can help them quickly work through different hardware designs.

IDG Contributor Network: Software wildcatting: 4 ways organizations launch wrong projects - Opinion - 2 hours 44 min ago

Oil optimists significantly depended on luck when they drilled in an area not already known to have oil — an approach called wildcatting. Nine times out of 10, they drilled a well that was a dry hole. While the oil drilling process has advanced since then, software practice has not — when it comes to selecting software that has strategic potential.

Most organizations today believe technology can help execute strategy. Unfortunately, they often end up selecting software that can't accomplish that purpose. That is, they select nonstrategic or wrong software. With the wrong software, they launch wrong projects. Result: implementation of dozens, or in large organizations, even hundreds, of wrong software systems.
