Google and Microsoft are among some of the major tech outfits that have complained to Qualcomm about the ramifications of a Broadcom acquisition of the chipmaker. Currently, Broadcom has a $70 a share deal on the table ($105 billion) for Qualcomm consisting of $60 in cash and $10 in Broadcom shares. While there are sources suggesting that Qualcomm would be a willing seller at $80 a share and up, Broadcom is looking to install its own candidates on Qualcomm's board, hoping that a proxy battle can help it win the company at the current bid price.

The Shazam app allows users to identify the music that's playing nearby, such as a song in a restaurant or cafe. The app quickly became one of the most popular smartphone apps when it launched in 2009 and has been downloaded more than one billion times by consumers. More»

In 2017, 26.2 percent those targeted by ransomware were business users, compared to 22.6 percent in 2016. This is due in part to three unprecedented attacks targeting corporate networks that changed forever the landscape for this increasingly virulent threat, according to Kaspersky Lab. 2017 will be remembered as the year the ransomware threat suddenly and spectacularly evolved with advanced threat actors targeting businesses the world over with a series of destructive worm-powered attacks whose ultimate goal remains a mystery. These attacks included WannaCry on May 12, ExPetr on June 27, and BadRabbit in late October. They all used exploits designed to compromise corporate networks. Businesses were also targeted by other ransomware and the company prevented ransomware infections on over 240,000 corporate users overall. “The headline attacks of 2017 are an extreme example of growing criminal interest in corporate targets. We spotted this trend in 2016, it has accelerated throughout 2017, and shows no signs of slowing down. Business victims are remarkably vulnerable, can be charged a higher ransom than individuals and are often willing to pay up in order to keep the business operational. New business-focused infection vectors, such as through remote desktop systems are not surprisingly also on the rise,” said Fedor Sinitsyn, Senior Malware Analyst, Kaspersky Lab. Overall, just under 950,000 unique users were attacked in 2017, compared to around 1.5 million in 2016 – with the difference between them largely a reflection of detection methodology, for example: the downloaders often associated with cryptomalware are now better detected by heuristic technologies, so not classified together with the ransomware-related verdicts collected by our telemetry.
