Windows 7 in 2012: Increased Popularity As Well As Malware Infection

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

According to Microsoft, from June 2011 to June 2012, Windows 7’s usage share grew 45% and it outnumbered the aged Windows XP and the new Windows 8. And also, malware infection rate in Windows 7 climbed by as much as 182% in 2012, said in Microsoft Security Intelligence Report. The case seems difficult to understand. Since Windows XP has been widely used and Microsoft released its milestone system, Windows 8, which is equipped with many new features and fresh functions, how can Windows 7 keep increasing popularity in spite of soaring malware(virus , Trojan horse, rootkits, keyloggers, etc.) infection?

To answer the question, we firstly take Windows 8 password as an example. In Windows 7, when users forget login password, they may have to recover Windows 7 password by some tools; In Windows 8, users just need to change to log in another methods, such as, picture password. However, the new password features in Windows 8 is said to be a big security flaw and vulnerable to hackers. Windows 8 is still not a trust-worthy system. As for the decreased market share of Windows XP, it is not groundless. Because even with the dramatic increase of malware affection in 2012, Windows 7 remained two to three times less likely to fall to hacker attacks than Windows XP.

“Windows 7 has really been the first platform adopted by both enterprises and consumers, and that kind of adoption hasn’t happened in quite some time for Microsoft”, said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Security. “Given the market movements, it’s likely that the attackers follow.”

Windows 7 is undoubtedly the most popular operation systems nowadays. On the other hand, the malware infection situation is indeed a big worry to many users, no matter which version of Windows 7 it is. Windows 7 SP1 was less likely to be infected than RTM, and the x86 editions of Windows 7 RTM and SP1 came with higher infection rates than the x64 versions. Windows 7 SP1 x64 had the lowest, 3.1, while Windows 7 RTM x86 had the highest rate, 5.3.

As reported by Microsoft, there are several factors to be blamed for the boost in successful malware attacks, “This may be caused in part by increasing acceptance and usage of the newest consumer version of Windows”. The report also states that “Early adopters are often technology enthusiasts who have a higher level of technical expertise than the mainstream computing population”. New users, especially those without advanced computer skills, are supposed to have a lower degree of security awareness to protect their Windows 7 from malware than early adopters. Another reason lies in the improvement of hacking skills after hackers have made researches for Windows 7 for a long time.

There isn’t any operation system that can totally prevent malware. The point that matters is not only the system itself, but also how users use their PCs. Windows 7 is surely a relatively safe system, but don’t ignore the Windows 7 security measures in daily usage.

Internet Explorer 10 finally comes to Windows 7

Friday, March 1st, 2013

On February 26, 2013, the final version of Internet Explorer 10, the default browser of Windows 8, comes to Windows 7. It is available worldwide in 95 languages for both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of the popular desktop operation system. IE 10 was firstly released on October 26, 2012, following the latest Windows operation system, Windows 8. The preview version for Windows 7 users was launched last November.

With the release of Windows 8, many Windows 7 users tend to compare these two operation system in their performance. When it comes to security performance, Windows 8 actually works better than Windows 7 in some aspects. For example, password recovery Windows 7 is troublesome to many Windows 7 users. While, in Windows 8, users can add a picture password or a PIN code as an implement to text password so that they are less possible to forget the password. As for the browsers, IE 10 provides Windows 8 users a safer online environment, which is also a reason why many Windows 7 users upgrade to Windows 8. Now, Windows 7 users can also download IE 10 to enjoy a faster and safer Web.
“With this final release, IE 10 brings the same leading standards support, with improved performance, security, privacy, reliability that consumers enjoy on Windows 8, to Windows 7 customers,” said Rob Mauceri, group program manager for Internet Explorer in a blog post.

IE10 is regarded as the most competitive and modern browser by some IT experts. Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 includes a focus on battery life improvements for mobile PCs as well as improved JavaScript performance. Though it has been available on Windows 8 with the release of Windows 8 four months ago, Microsoft opted for a delayed Windows 7 schedule to ensure the release was fully ready. We can see that some Windows 7 users have waited this upgraded browser for too long a time that some criticisms have been drawn on Microsoft in the early days.

Windows 7 users will now get integrated spell checking and auto-correct within IE10, as well as improved support for web standards like the latest CSS3 improvements. Besides, if you’ve run IE9 on Windows 7, IE10 probably won’t look much different at the first glance. Windows 7 users won’t get the full screen experience that’s available in Windows 8.The Windows 8 version of IE10 moves the address bar to the bottom of each page and features a stripped-down, rakish aesthetic, the Windows 7 variant retains its predecessor’s major design cues.

IE10 has many security and privacy enhancements. By default, ad websites will be barred from collecting user information, which greatly annoyed many advertisers. AppContainer, for instance, similar to the sandboxing approach used in mobile systems, essentially segments processes so that an infected program cannot spread malicious code elsewhere easily.

It is said that IE10 will not be released for Windows Vista or Windows XP. Microsoft was the only browser maker so far to drop Vista, just as it was the first one to abandon Windows XP last year when it shipped IE9.

Now, you can download IE 10 for your Windows 7 computer from Microsoft’s official website!

Is your Windows 7 password safe enough?

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Windows 7, unlike its previous version, Windows Vista, which equips a lot of new features, was designed to be a more focused, incremental upgrade to the Windows OS line. Indeed, it has now successfully outnumbered Windows XP and become the most popular operation system with the biggest number of users even though Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 are all released recently. Despite this, Windows 7 password is a rather troublesome to most Windows 7 users. On one hand, they find it’s not easy to remember Windows 7 password clearly all the time and they have to resort to a Windows 7 password recovery tool on a regular basis. On the other hand, even if they can remember Windows 7 password clearly, whether the Windows 7 password is safe or not is a really a question.

Is your Windows 7 password stored safely?

Do you have any idea where your Windows 7 password stored? Actually, in Windows 7, password is stored in the SAM registry hive. Take the administrator password as an example. In general, to find the password to an admin account in Windows 7 may take minutes up to hours depending on the situation. It seems that the password in Windows 7 is safely stored. However, according to some IT experts, the password hints in a scrambled format in Windows 7 can be easily converted into human-readable form. The clue is added to Windows 7 registry when users configure a Windows account to provide a hint about the password needed to access it. Although this stuff seems to be unreadable at the first sight, it can clearly be decoded and could be used by tools that extract the data from the SAM. And the hints are available to anyone who has physical access to a targeted Windows 7 PC.

How to make your Windows 7 password safer?

A strong Windows 7 password is extremely important to WIndows 7 computer security. In view of it, some users set a complicated password consisting of various numbers, characters and symbols. It will greatly improve the system security without doubt. But if the user has bad memory, the complex password can be easily forgotten. I suggest we can make a complex password and avoid simple alphanumeric passwords, but we should create a Windows 7 password reset disk in advance so that we can easily get our forgotten Windows 7 password reset in a few minutes. The password reset disk can be repeatedly used to reset Windows password without limitation. You also need to know that, others are also able to enter your computer with the disk. So please store your disk in a safe place. In addition, we should keep cautious when we download software on the Internet, some malware usually disguised to ask you to enter your account and Windows 7 password. Meanwhile, update your passwords and use your antivirus software regularly to prevent virus, spyware and other safety problems.

Tips:

In case that you forget your Windows 7 password and your Windows 7 password reset disk doesn’t work, you should also learn about some password reset disk, such as Opchcrack and Anmosoft Windows Password Reset.

 

More Attentions Should Be Paid on Windows 7 Security Now

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Recently, password security and software security in Windows 7 has been widely discussed all around the world. Password security involves in Windows password setup, Windows 7 password recovery, Windows 7 password policies, etc. And software security mainly refers to the malware infection in Windows 7 machines lately.

Just weeks before the release of Windows 8, Microsoft’s Windows 7 has finally topped Windows XP as the most popular global desktop OS. In December, the latest data released by Net Application shows that, though Windows 8 added its market share from 1.09 percent in November to 1.64, Windows 7 has also increased from 44.71 percent in November to 45.11 percent. There is no doubt that Windows 7, a “simpler, faster, more responsive” operation system debuting on Oct. 22, 2009, has been the best-seller operation system in the history of Microsoft. With more and more Windows 7 users, the issue on Windows 7 security becomes extremely important to us.

Many Windows 7 users complain that hackers crack their passwords for many times recently. As we all know, Windows 7 login password is a powerful tool to help users protect hackers or peepers from logging in Windows 7 systems. As for Windows 7 password security, the password policies in Windows 7 should be mentioned firstly. In Windows 7, users can customize their own password policies to ensure password security, including the maximum or minimum password length, password complexity requirement, password age, etc. Therefore, users should check whether their password policies are safe or not every now then. Besides, since forgetting Windows 7 passwords is a common thing, users should choose a reliable way to reset their password when they forget it. Users should have the awareness that many hackers may crack your Windows 7 password when you download or use their malware. Another reason which results to Windows 7 passwords hack may lie in the repeat use of the same password in different occasions.

Besides, malware infection in Windows 7 is also a big puzzle troubled many Windows 7 users these days. According to the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, comparing the last quarter of 2011 to the first half of 2012, the average number of infected Windows 7 SP1 computers increased by 23% on 32-bit systems and 7% on 64-bit systems. And at the same time, the average number of Windows XP SP3 PCs infected by malware increased by about 10%. In the report, Microsoft analyzes the reason, “This may be caused in part by increasing acceptance and usage of the newest consumer version of Windows,” and they insist, “As the Windows 7 install base has grown up, new users are likely to possess a lower degree of security awareness than the early adopters and be less aware of safe online practices.” Actually, we can do a lot to prevent malware. First of all, be very skeptical of random pop-up windows, error messages and attachments. A lot of malware may be installed when you click on these things. Secondly, if you get a piece of spam, let your mail software know. You’d better develop the habit to remove spam timely. Last but not least, before you install any new software, Google the name of it firstly.

In order to protect your data and information from hacking in Windows 7, more attention should be paid to ensure system security. It is closely related to every user’s privacy and benefit. Take it seriously!
