So Person using an Alexa to talk to Cortana Should say 
"Alexa, open Cortana"
hey cortana

and Someone using Cortana to talk to Alexa Should say
"Cortana, open Alexa"

As Microsoft announced
"First-of-its-kind collaboration with Amazon between Cortana and Alexa that will offer more choice, value, and access to both intelligent personal assistants"
and it is First of its kind collaboration.

According to Microsoft, this collaboration will allow you to access Alexa devices via Cortana on Windows 10 PC.

The Creator of back OLD Petya ransomware is going to help cracking the new one

In my previous post, I have mentioned the origin of the new Petya Ransomware was from a year old  Ransomware family with the same name

The source of the NPetya(new-Petya) was created from a ransomware which   was sold as RAAS (Ransomware  as a service)  by @Janus the creator of the original Petya in July 2016 

after a year Janus is back with a tweet stating 
Blackhats do get a whitehat job

He can help the victim of NPetya with the master-key created for Petya during RAAS sale, and the buyer of the Petya or probably the customers of Janus are unfamiliar about the master key 

And several replies were posted in the Darkweb. Here is the one posted for @janus   after his conclusion to crack the ransomware    

After the few hours of ransomware spread, the attacker email has been blocked by mail service provider there is no way a  victim can purchase a key even if  the seller is legit now 
An email provided with the Ransomware fails to deliver

And few more   rumours show decryption of the files is not possible and  the purpose of ransomware was just to wipe off your files

The Petya a new Ransomware - Intentionally created for Cyberwar

The Petya malware  has affected over 60% of  Windows system in Ukraine
image credits: Flickr image
What if this malware was initially created for the purpose of cyber  attack over European  And Russian System

Graph released  by Kaspersky Lab shows most of the European and USSR countries were victim to this virus

How Did it emerge?

It's turned from a year old ransomware family Petya. With the EternalBlue exploit leaked from NSA and Mimikatz

How it Steered itself?

The attacker sent a mail to few targetted mail list which had Dropper out of macros exploit in Excel, these droppers downloaded the Petya virus (RUNDLL32.exe) from the web host and installs itself
It adds a schedule to reboot your PC from MBR and during windows welcome phase it runs fake CHKDSK commands, but behind the scene, Petya does the following process -

  • It itemises the admins in the local System and modifies the host, executes core malware with  Psexec this provides write  access to the whole computer with admin permit
  • The core malware now tries to exploit SMB port, and with Mimikatz it dumps the
    logins of the computers connected via LAN, and this is the 

Petya 2017 Note 
successful exploitation of EternalBlue (Thanks to NSA and Microsoft)

once the malware gets access to the admin of the computer within a loop, It cyphers all your files with the note to pay 300$ via BitCoins and an installation key is provided

Counter-Strike prevention  measures or bugs in the ransomware code:

It checks for a "perfc" file in Windows Directory, Based on the version in the file exploitation of the ransomware may vary
 A temporary kill switch is designed by us to prevent the malware encrypting your file. Thanks to the ransomware programmer for missing out the else part in this function.

KILL SWITCH  executing the batchfile will make the above code a false statement and prevent the execution 

And permanent solution is having your system up to date from Microsoft

File types affected by Petya

.3ds .7z .accdb .ai .asp .aspx .avhd .back .bak .c .cfg .conf .cpp .cs .ctl .dbf .disk .djvu .doc .docx .dwg .eml .fdb .gz .h. hdd .kdbx .mail .mdb .msg .nrg .ora .ost .ova .ovf .pdf .php .pmf .ppt .pptx .pst .pvi .py .pyc .rar .rtf .sln .sql .tar .vbox .vbs .vcb .vdi .vfd .vmc .vmdk .vmsd .vmx .vsdx .vsv .work .xls .xlsx .xvd .zip

Decryption is still not possible as the encryption has a mass impact on your data!

Security researcher and Antivirus companies are trying to find a decryption procedure.

 More similar outbreaks to occur if NSA denies sharing the vulnerability with the stock industries and Developer of the product.

New Advanced Mode in Windows 10 Pro ? Hail Workstation PCs !

This feature better improvised it's best movement in CPU's that are enabled via connecting multi processing stigmas to deliver better performances according to the tasks ordered.

ReFS : 

Resilient file system storage - ReFS is Microsoft's new updated file system which was introduced with Windows Server on 2012. The technical support for this was introduced in Windows 8.1 and  There's a setup process which involves building a mirror kind of set and formatting the whole of  them with the new file system. This is exactly used for doing works with the data that has been lost.

Now the situation is favoring Microsoft only for it's own specific upgrade with this version of Windows 10 and they also doesn't know the more foregrounding techniques to kick their rivals heads off.

Artificial Intelligence a Big backdrop for Microsoft?? And Hell yeah, The gaming stream service fetched new terms and techniques; With U.I modifications Way to go Microsoft!

Hey people out there who are looking for feeds, here we are on our morning ride with Microsoft.Inc and it's two bigger compartments. Yeah, Game Stream Service of Microsoft "Mixer" is the big Tweet blaster of yesterday and it shook the gaming arena into pieces. And Artificial Intelligence a piece of cake for them ?

Microsoft Mixer.

#1 Microsoft Mixer :

Last August 2016, microsoft bought Beam interactive for some low unknown amount and it's disclosed manner was huge in the feed. While those days it was only a testing sheet and was not widely used apart.“Represents what we love most about the service….how it brings people together,” wrote Microsoft Mixer engineering lead and Beam cofounder Matt Salsamendi in his blog post.

Beam+Microsoft = <3
So yeah? Microsoft gets his own Game Streaming Service this time and it allows users to post their Gameplays in their not in some youtube channels and blend it's importance to Gamers. Well, already Amazon's Twitch and Google's Youtube premier is available already and it's a tough call for microsoft to establish themselves.  But since the Beam Interactive already proven their heads off this might work well in the first place.
Let's Stay Tuned.

The Technology Giant - Microsoft.

#2 Microsoft's A.I - a suicide bomber?

Everybody knows about Microsoft's Giant Cloud service which they themselves call as AZURE.  And company has lot of short term goals on it without expecting  a big slice of cake.And as we know the Microsoft's Mobile Sector doesn't seem well established and it is still around in some few places. so what's the future scope of Microsoft ?? What do they expect on their track? yeah, since Google's best masterminds revealed at the I/O 2017 now the trend is Artificial Intelligence.
Bits of Microsoft

Artificial intelligence will not only change how and where compute happens but also the underlying structure of the technology that we use every day. Up until now, humans have been responsible for each programming language created and while they are awesome languages, they do have their own issues.

It's very own A.I
 But, once a computer is able to create the ‘perfect’ computer language and organization structure, this is what will become the great ‘reset’ in the computer science industry.
A computer can try every combination of every current language to learn the optimized path with the least amount of trade-off in a short amount of time for building applications and building new services. And if the current combinations are not ideal, it’s not hard to conceptualize that AI will one day write its own computing language that humans don’t understand to build perfectly efficient services.

Let's Stay Tuned.

Microsoft Metro UI CSS

Microsoft's  UI development is going on a track than we expected. And via reliable sources we got it here at our labs 
this is the most trust worthy A.I we're about to use in the mere future. As we know their Metro UI where  Metro UI CSS developed with the advice of Microsoft to build the user interface and include: general styles, grid, layouts, etc. Metro UI CSS build with {LESS}. Metro UI CSS is being an open source and has MIT licensing over model.
  Keep Shadowing for the finest, foremost, pre-eminent, superlative,unsurpassed, peerless, unparalleled facts and feeds about the Technology and it's all yours. Let's Demand and Supply :) Join the String.

Microsoft's cornerstone is on A.I ? With Reading,Writing and even claims Questions ? Come on, Microsoft !

It's good to be back, This column is full filled with Microsoft's best ever news this month and it's kind of influencing the whole A.I dept.

The Microsoft Headquarters.

Microsoft's previous ventures had the experiences of recognizing Images and Texts and now they're taking it to the next level like perceiving the TEXTS in PASSAGES and ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS related to it. The Company's leading A.I Experts team working on that to prevail the best notion. Kaheer Suleman, the co-founder of Maluuba, a Quebec-based deep learning startup that Microsoft acquired earlier this year.

Maluuba - An A.I Startup.

The  Maluuba group is one of a few gatherings at Microsoft that are handling the test of machine perusing. Two other research groups, one at the organization's Redmond, Washington, base camp and the other in its Beijing, China, inquire about lab, are as of now driving an opposition keep running by Stanford University that utilization data from Wikipedia to test how well AI frameworks can answer inquiries regarding content entries.

Microsoft analysts and other industry and scholarly specialists likewise are viewing for the best outcomes utilizing another dataset, called MS MARCO, that utilization genuine, anonymized information from Bing seek inquiries to test a framework's capacity to answer a question.

The groups say that is an additional test since it depends on individuals true inquiries. Testing on that sort of information guarantees the frameworks they are building will in the long run be helpful for genuine clients. 
Artificial Intelligence the data paradigm.

"We're not recently going to assemble a cluster of calculations to take care of hypothetical issues. We're utilizing them to take care of genuine issues and testing them on genuine information," said Rangan Majumder, an accomplice aggregate program supervisor inside Microsoft's Bing division. He's working intimately with the Redmond machine perusing research group and drove advancement of the MS MARCO dataset.

he underlying foundations of Microsoft's machine perusing work backpedal about two decades, to the early work analysts at the organization did in the field of characteristic dialect handling. At the time, Bill Dolan, a central scientist at Microsoft who takes a shot at regular dialect preparing, clowned that the frameworks "worked perfectly, however not frequently."

Still, that foundational work is presently being fused into the calculations that the Redmond group is utilizing for its latest machine perusing advances, and it's likewise been the premise of other notable work Dolan and his group have accomplished in characteristic dialect preparing.

In the same way as other AI progresses in the previous couple of years, machine perusing has profited from the set of three of better profound learning calculations, a huge increment in cloud-based processing energy to run those calculations and gigantic measures of information to learn and test on.
10 Years of Research : 
(short span)The analysts say those abilities, alongside advances in profound taking in strategies from work in ranges like picture and discourse acknowledgment, has gotten them to a point where they feel certain that huge leaps forward in machine perusing are not too far off. That is something many still wonder about. 
Their P.O.C with Microsoft's A.I dept sector

"It's a long haul dream for specialists in regular dialect handling and notwithstanding for computerized reasoning," said Furu Wei, a lead analyst in the Natural Language Processing Group at Microsoft Research Asia.
Let's make a pause and look at the enormous level of growth of Microsoft's A.I.
