Latest tech news worldwide today - August 28,2019(Camscanner malware,iOs 12.4.1,Telegram's gram and more)

Latest tech news today - August 28,2019

Camscanner app contains malware..

Kaspersky team, has identified malware in one of the most popular user base app named CamScanner. THis app was found to have trojan served through advertisements.

Here is what they say..

Kaspersky products detect this module as Trojan-Dropper.AndroidOS.Necro.n, which we have observed in some apps preinstalled on Chinese smartphones. As the name suggests, the module is a Trojan Dropper. That means the module extracts and runs another malicious module from an encrypted file included in the app’s resources. This “dropped” malware, in turn, is a Trojan Downloader that downloads more malicious modules depending on what its creators are up to at the moment.
Google removed the app from its playstore, and urges users to uninstall the free version of the app immediately.

Facebook developing a new app "Threads" to get all your details again..

Facebook was found to be developing a new app called "Threads". Insiders says, this app will let you share your device's battery life, your real time location, and with the help of some creative tools to send picture messages like you are hungry, sleeping,etc with your closest friends on Instagram automatically.

I would say, this might be a new attempt by facebook to get realtime data about you. After selling all your data to third parties, in the name of advertisements if this new app was released , then you will no longer be able to control your data officially.

What do you Say?

Windows 10 version 1909, 19h2 build 18363.327, the September 2019 Windows 10 update is now available to few insiders

Windows 10 1909, aka 19H2 build 18363.327. the September 2019 Windows 10 update is now released for few insiders. Users will start seeing this update just like a normal update when you check on Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows update. If this update was showing to you, and you want to know whether you can install it or not, then my suggestion would be no, because Microsoft has clarified that all the features of Windows 10 Version, 1909 was not migrated yet.

Here, is what Microsoft Says..

Insiders in the Release Preview ring who get 19H2 Build 18363.327 today will not see all the 19H2 features the Slow ring currently has as not all the features have been incorporated into the build yet. Because of the differences between the way the 19H2 updates are packaged between the Slow and Release Preview rings, Insiders in the Slow ring will not be able to switch to the Release Preview ring and get updates yet. Insiders who are thinking of switching rings should stay put for now. We will communicate to Insiders when it is ok to make the switch.

If you are a normal standard Windows user, then we have a happy news this time because Microsoft (after serving all of the bugs in previous builds) decided to send this update to users as just a normal cumulative update which means like a normal Tuesday update which i guess won't consume lot of data to download than previous builds, but as a usual suggestion. Control your wish to install the Windows 10 version 1909 as of now on Main PC, and wait for Microsoft to fix all the bugs.

Cloud download Option in Windows 10 - What it cloud download option available in Windows 10/Insider previews builds.

Cloud download option under Settings -> Update & Security -> Recovery, clicking on the option will not do anything, some of you might have seen this in the latest Windows 10 Insider preview 18963  article available on the official blog, we will explain that in this post.

So, what is this Cloud download option?

If you are Mac user, you might have noticed that there was an option to download the OS directly from servers and reinstall on the device in case we encounter some bugs, this new option was believed to work on the same way in Windows. 

Some history..

If your Windows 10 is causing some issues, the last option was to finally reinstall the OS, but for that you need USB or external media you have boot and perform the installation right?, you don't need that now. Because clicking on this new cloud download option will download and install windows automatically.

But why when reset this PC option is already available?, this was the question that arose on my mind when i first heard about this, then after researching i found that Reset this PC will reinstall the OS from the already created image, but Cloud download option will directly connect to servers and will download and install the updated OS, that was the simple difference i found but again i think this option won't solve most of the problems, particularly when the issue we are already facing was network connectivity issue.

Only the old options will help us on that time, hope Microsoft won't remove the option in future.

What do you think..?

Windows 10 insider preview 18963 is one of the insider preview that has lot of new features you can try

Windows 10 Insider preview 18963 was the all new Windows 20H1 edition released today by Microsoft. Those who feel downloading latest Windows 10 insider preview is waste of time(as Microsoft releases nearly 4GB worth insider OS everyweek, but when you installed you might find only 1 new feature with bug fixes most of the time) you can try installing this new windows 10 insider preview 18963 as it contains many new features.

1) Changing the virtual desktop Name..

We are using Windows 10 virtual desktop now and then, but there was no option to set a name for that desktop, Microsoft fixed that issue, so you can now name your virtual desktop, which might come in handy for users who use lot of virtual desktops and confuse on which virtual desktop the particular app was running.

2) Now you can GPU temperature by default.

Check this post for how to[click to view].

3) An improved Optional features page.

Microsoft has moved the Optional features page to settings window in Earlier editions, but that doesn't gave the feel like using optional features from control panel, mainly because it doesn't contain all the options migrated. Microsoft was aware of that, and has made lot of improvements to this build.

Just give it a try. 

I will post download links for Windows 10 insider preview 18963 iso once it was available in public domains.

GPU temperature will now show on Windows 10 - How to view GPU temperature on Windows 10 latest version

Tracking GPU temperature was one of the painful part for many, especially you will know this if you are a gamer. Though Windows 10 has many third party tools for tracking GPU temperature, the option was not available by default. But that was history, because in the upcoming Windows 10 update, codenamed 20H1 you can easily track the temperature of your dedicated GPU right in the task manager itself.

Microsoft confirmed this, in the latest Windows 10 insider preview build 18963.

One of the longstanding requests we’ve been tracking for Task Manager is to add temperature monitoring support, and with today’s build we’re making progress on that ask. If you have a dedicated GPU card, we will now bubble up the current temperature next to its listing in the Performance Tab.
So, if you have Windows 10 insider preview build 18963, stop using the third party apps, and start using the inbuilt option. You can do that by pressing ctrl +shift +Esc keys -> Performance tab.

Remember to give feedback to Microsoft, if you face any issues..
