Antivirus products riddled with security flaws, researcher says

It?s generally accepted that antivirus programs provide a necessary protection layer, but organizations should audit such products before deploying them on their systems because many of them contain serious vulnerabilities, a researcher warned.

According to Joxean Koret, a researcher at Singapore security firm COSEINC, antivirus programs are as vulnerable to attacks as the applications they?re trying to protect and expose a large attack surface that can make computers even more vulnerable.

Koret spent the last year analyzing antivirus products and their engines in his spare time and claims to have found dozens of remotely and locally exploitable vulnerabilities in 14 of them. The vulnerabilities ranged from denial-of-service issues to flaws that allow potential attackers to elevate their privileges on systems or to execute arbitrary code. Some bugs were located in antivirus engines?the core parts of antivirus products?and some in various other components.

Best Buy dreams of laptop revival amid 'crashing' tablet sales

A couple years ago, few people would have bet on the laptop as the savior for an ailing tablet market. But that's what Best Buy seems to be counting on as tablet sales fall flat.

"The tablets boomed and now are crashing. The volume has really gone down in the last several months," Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly told Re/code. "But I think the laptop has something of a revival because it?s becoming more versatile."

Although Joly didn't provide any numbers, IDC estimates that worldwide tablet sales grew by just 11 percent year-over-year in the second quarter, down from 60 percent growth between 2012 and 2013. Apple was hit the hardest last quarter, as iPad sales fell by 9.3 percent over the last year, but rival Samsung's growth was essentially flat, and Amazon didn't even appear on the list of top five vendors.

Google makes Chromebox for Meetings more business-friendly

In a sign that its Chromebox for Meetings videoconferencing solution is alive and well, Google unveiled a boatload of new features and capabilities, all designed at luring businesses to its Google Apps platform.

Google said Tuesday that it would bring its Hangouts videoconferencing service underneath its Service Level Agreement, putting it on a par with its Google Apps like Gmail, Docs, and Drive. And in recognition that Google+ doesn?t enjoy the same status as it once did, Hangouts can be connected to Google accounts that haven?t signed up for the social networking service.

Infor wins appeal of long-running patent lawsuit

A U.S. appeals court has dismissed a long-running patent infringement lawsuit lodged against Lawson Software by ePlus.

EPlus first sued Lawson, an ERP (enterprise resource planning) company Infor acquired in 2011, in 2009, alleging that a number of configurations of Lawson?s procurement software infringed on patents it held.

In May 2011, ePlus won an injunction against Lawson, which then redesigned its software in order to eliminate any infringement.

EPlus subsequently claimed Lawson had violated the injunction, arguing the redesigned software wasn?t measurably different from the original. The court sided with ePlus, finding Lawson in contempt and fining it US$18 million.
