They can be used to describe many situations where a malicious user may gain information about a computer system and/or its users. For example, a system administrator may be able to view information about users of the system if they are logged in with a valid account and have permission to view that information.
For example, system administrators may be able to see which files were installed in the past and which files were used last.
Reading or writing malicious data from or to the device’s memory may reveal sensitive or private information to the malicious user.
For example, reading a secure server log file may reveal the information that a transaction took place.
Malicious data may be stored in the cache so that it will not be lost.
That way, the malicious user will be able to access the information from the cache.
Conducting research on a computer system without the owner’s knowledge is known as “Social Engineering”.
Malicious software may secretly scan a computer for hardware and software vulnerabilities which may be later used to exploit those vulnerabilities.
For example, a malicious software program may appear to offer the user a software update.
The user may actually download a malicious piece of software that is designed to perform a malicious task later.
We’ve found out more about the next-gen Pulsar from the company, and it might be the hottest new kid on the block, with a crazy combination of low battery life and ultra-high refresh rate.
The new Spectravideo Pulsar will be launching later this year, and it looks crazy. The company is calling it the world’s first truly low-battery-life display, with a crazy refresh rate of up to 144Hz, which is really astonishing to see. It’ll also be the first such display with 4K HDR and also boasts an industry-first, 256-zone AMVA panel.
We’re not sure yet if it will be available in the U.S., but you can expect to see it in Europe. You’ll be able to find it with the Spectravideo Pulsar XG8400PF and PXG8400PF
Furthermore, this is the first such panel to launch that has support for HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. According to Spectravideo, it will be the first of its size with support for all HDR formats as well, when it launches. We’ll also be able to find it in Western Europe, and it’s set to ship in October.
