Manjaro Marketing Lie

Today, 04:35 PM

Posted by securitybreach in Bruno's All Things Linux
"We integrated MS Office in our OS."

Amazing, they were able to preinstall a browser.  Claiming that Microsoft Office works on your OS when all you are doing is using webapps like any other distro/OS could is very mendacious. That sounds like a tactic that (a certain fruit company) would use.  Talk about deceitful. :thumbsdown:

I understand that it is marketing but they are basically lying legally... Very shameful Manjaro. :bangin:

And of course, I called them out on their tweet and also on G+. B)

Eset being included in Chrome for Windows

Today, 04:27 PM

In its ongoing effort to improve browser security, school Microsoft on security, and retain its search audience, Google is today rolling out several Chrome for Windows fortifications.

The search biz has modded Chrome for Windows to detect when extensions switch people's Chrome settings, such as the default search engine, without authorization, a common tactic for deceptive software. The browser will now ask whether it can restore previous settings, which for the majority of Windows users will reestablish Google as Chrome's default search engine.

The operation can also be done by visiting a reset URL:
chrome://settings/resetProfileSettings


What's more, Google has enlisted security biz ESET to rebuild its Chrome Cleanup engine for removing deceptive code. In effect, the browser is getting built-in basic antivirus protection for your Windows computer.

"Our engine scans for and cleans potentially harmful applications, specifically the types that negatively impact or target the Chrome browsing experience," said Juraj Malcho, chief technology officer at ESET, in an email to The Register. "It is not meant to provide full coverage against all modern threats, its capabilities are limited to detecting specific malware families and/or specific ways of tampering with Chrome or operating system."

Chrome Cleanup began life in 2014 as Software Removal Tool, a sort of factory reset for Google's browser. Referred to as both Chrome Cleanup Tool and Chrome Cleanup, it has evolved into a way for Windows users to undo the damage from "unwanted software," the neutered term Google uses for malware.
