Microsoft Corp said on Tuesday that a hacking group previously linked to the Russian government and U.S. political hacks was behind recent cyber attacks that exploited a newly discovered Windows security flaw. The software maker said in an advisory on its website there had been a small number of attacks using "spear phishing" emails from a hacking group known Strontium, which is more widely known as "Fancy Bear," or APT 28. Microsoft did not identify any victims. Microsoft's disclosure of the new attacks and the link to Russia came after Washington accused Moscow of launching an unprecedented hacking campaign aimed at disrupting and discrediting the upcoming U.S. election. The U.S. government last month formally blamed the Russian government for the election-season hacks of Democratic Party emails and their subsequent disclosure via WikiLeaks and other entities. Russia has denied those accusations. More»

The Egyptian internet service provider TE Data launched a new ADSL bundle named Mega Plus bundles, promising higher speeds and greater capacities. Some of the company’s authorised distributors have criticised these bundles, saying that the high speeds are only available for limited use and not unlimited as the company had previously announced. The bundles provide the possibility of obtaining higher speeds up to 16Mbps through the company’s landline internet service. This or the choice of a number of different speed bundles for internet use are offered along with access to all the movies and TV shows on the company’s SHAHID Plus. TE Data also will provide a free WiFi router when clients subscribe to any of the Mega Plus bundles. More»

Several experts agree that the Egyptian communication market has developed into a prominent one and that it has many opportunities for growth. However, after the four major communication companies obtained the fourth generation (4G) licences this year and became integrated operators, many believe that the market needs to be reorganised and the communication law be amended to guarantee that the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) will be independent of the government’s influence. These opinions were brought up during a seminar last Wednesday that discussed the 4G licence negotiations; it was organised by the Scientific Society of Telecom Engineers and took place at the Engineers Syndicate Professor at the faculty of engineering in Ain Shams University Abdel Aziz El-Bassiouni said that the Egyptian communication market is very prominent, citing that it represents 1.5% of the international market and makes annual revenues that reach an estimated EGP 35bn.

Ant Financial Services Group, the world's biggest financial technology company, plans to focus its expansion plans in Asia before looking to go more global, a senior official said on Tuesday. Ant, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's online finance arm, will offer its insurance and investment management products outside of China, senior vice president Douglas Feagin said at an event to mark a tie-up with Thai payment firm Ascend. The Thailand deal marks Ant's first significant expansion effort into foreign payments in Asia since last year's partnership with India's PayTM, which raised over $500 million in a round led by Alibaba in September. Ant's payment platform Alipay has been tussling with major local rival Tencent Holdings Ltd, whose Tenpay has also been making an overseas push by targeting thousands of retailers particularly around Asia.

Facebook will allow more content on its platform that it would have earlier removed because it violated its standards, with new criteria being worked out, a senior executive said on Monday, following a row over the removal of an iconic Vietnam War photo. His comments came on the same day that more than 70 rights groups asked Facebook to clarify its policies for removing content, especially at the behest of governments, alleging the firm had repeatedly censored postings that document human rights violations. Only a month ago, the company and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg came into conflict after Facebook deleted the photo of a naked Vietnamese girl fleeing a napalm attack, called "The Terror of War". Solberg posted the photograph on her Facebook page after the company had deleted it from the sites of a Norwegian author and the newspaper Aftenposten, which mounted a front-page campaign urging Facebook to permit publication.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd Chief Executive Kwon Oh-hyun on Tuesday said the South Korean tech giant must improve, as it reels from the costly withdrawal of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. Without referring directly to the failure of the fire-prone Note 7s, Kwon said in a statement Samsung employees should look back and ask whether they had been complacent in their work. "We have a long history of overcoming crises," Kwon said. "Let us use this crisis as a chance to make another leap by re-examining and thoroughly improving how we work, how we think about innovation and our perspective of our customers." The global smartphone leader and Apple Inc rival last week said it aimed to recover quickly from the withdrawal of the fire-prone Note 7 in October. More»

Women executives left Yahoo Inc at an unusually high rate after the U.S. technology company announced plans to sell itself earlier this year, but it was not immediately clear why, according to the company's 2016 diversity report, released on Monday. The sharp drop comes as Silicon Valley faces pressure to diversify a workforce heavily dominated by white and Asian men. The last year has been turbulent for the web pioneer, which in February announced it would explore alternatives and put in motion a plan to cut about 15 percent of its workforce. In July, it struck a $4.8 billion deal to sell its core internet businesses to Verizon Communications Inc. The number of women in Yahoo leadership roles slipped to 21 percent as at June 30, down from 24 percent the year before, the report showed. Women in non-technical jobs dropped to 52 percent from 54 percent. The total number of women at Yahoo remained steady at 31 percent. More»
