A few places are reporting a USB exploit in Intel Skylake and Kaby Lake systems. This vulnerability allows attackers to bypass security mechanisms by using a debugging interface exploit, which allows attackers to install malicious code, rewrite firmware and even rewrite your system's BIOS. This bug affects any system with a Skylake CPU that has a debugging interface that is accessible via USB 3.0. What is most scary about this exploit is that it is currently undetectable using existing security tools. I'll chase up some more details for the next news post.

The FTC is back again, this time suing D-Link for routers and video cameras that the company claimed were "easy to secure" and delivered "advanced network security," yet were about as secure as a kitten-guarded pillow fort.

OCClub have a GTX 1070 Overclocking Guide. Now, start the Unigine Heaven benchmark in windowed mode so you can change the frequency while it is running. I generally use the Heaven benchmark as it's easy to run in windowed mode and artifacts are noticeable. Start with 100MHz OC and apply, then watch for any artifacts in the textures. These may be seen as flashing green, pink, or black textures. If none are present, push it up another 100MHz. Continue this until 400MHz.

CES is a place for many companies to showcase their new products and what better way to get attention to those products than to have them inside of a great mod or build. PC Modding has never been bigger and many companies actually commission modders to create builds for CES.
