HP Leaves Backdoor Open On Enterprise Virtual Hosting

In the continuing wake of PRISM fallout, many high profile companies have had their own dirty laundry exposed to consumer scrutiny. HP has an undocumented administrator backdoor with poor password strength hiding in its StoreVirtual enterprise virtual hosting service and have admitted that the backdoor is a significant security vulnerability that grants root level access.

5 Dimension Data Storage

Researchers Have Created Data Storage That Could Last a Million Years

Researchers at the University of Southampton have reported that experiments using femtocell-laser inscription to create fine-dimensional digital data storage were successful. These experiments allowed the researchers to demonstrate a way to write and read up to 360 TB of digital data on a simple disk of quartz glass allowing for stable storage of the data for upwards of one million years.

New And Cool: Samsung 840 EVO 1TB Solid State Drive

Solid State Drives are the current masters of PC speed in the storage media world. However, until recently, the cost and maximum storage available kept the SSD from supplanting mechanical drives as standard equipment on most PC systems and even opened up the possibility of a new drive market niche, the hybrid drive or SSHD.

PRISM Fall Out Continues: Google Working On Cloud Encryption

In the light of recent revelations about the US government’s wide-ranging data surveillance programs, many users have been struggling with the realization that Cloud services are not as secure as once believed. Google is reported looking to build back user's trust by offering an encryption service for it's Google Drive cloud storage application where as it's current application only offers encryption during transmission.

Network Attached Storage

Top Three Network-Attached One or Two bay Storage Devices

As a network expands, whether it is a media based home network or a small-business network, the need for accessible centralized storage becomes a higher priority. In response to this growing issue a number of companies have packaged a standalone storage device designed to take up this role.

The Future Is Now: Google’s Quantum Computer Proven To be Real

The first step to achieving the current holy grail of computing architecture has been realized, to an extent. The D-Wave quantum computer hosted at the University of Southern California has been proven to NOT operate within the laws of conventional physics. Researchers at USC have concluded that the machine is not using a computer model called “simulated annealing” and therefore could be operating either on a quantum level or with a previously unknown process that simulates this action.

Cloud Concerns: Survey Data Shows Disturbing Trends

The Ponemon Institute recently published it's findings from a 2013 study about the Security of Cloud Computing Users in which 748 IT security practitioners were surveyed. The results are pretty shocking and raises the question, just how secure are your cloud backups?
