Always ever - vigilant to plug the vulnerabilities in its entire range of products, Microsoft released certain critical patches (security updates) for more than 19 flaws. They include patches for Windows 8, for utilities like Internet Explorer 9, .Net development framework, Excel, for Silverlight which affects for Windows and Mac computers. Four of these patches have been termed as critical updates for security flaws likely to compromise the device’s or system data’s security. Other patches have been classified as important or moderate for protection against the possibility of malware or hackers attack.

Director of security operations Andrew Storms insists on first using the patches for internet explorer 9 as users are being tricked by hackers into browsing to malevolent sites. This flaw has been exploited for about a month by the hackers in Windows XP (SP3), Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 which uses IE6 web browser and above. However, logging in as ‘administrator’ and not as ‘user’ is more risky for system files and documents being affected. With the security updates, Microsoft believes these flaws are neutralized to the maximum.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
