  1. Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21277 (RS_PRERELEASE) to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. As mentioned here, we are giving Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel the option to receive builds from the RS_PRERELEASE branch. These builds will be offered as an optional update through the “seeker” experience in Windows Update. This means Insiders will have to go and choose to install the currently offered RS_PRERELEASE build. Once they do, they will continue to receive RS_PRERELEASE builds going forward. This optional experience for receiving RS_PRERELEASE builds is just temporary – we plan to move all Insiders in the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from RS_PRERELEASE sometime after the holidays. As a reminder, Dev Channel builds are not matched to a specific Windows 10 release. Also: features like the updated emoji picker, redesigned touch keyboard, voice typing, theme-aware splash screens, and others that were removed temporarily at the end of October will be returning for Insiders who install this RS_PRERELEASE build. However, please note some of these features will continue to be available only to a subset of Insiders and will get enabled for more Insiders over time. Be sure to check the list of known issues below. The list of fixes and known issues between FE_RELEASE builds and RS_PRERELEASE builds will NOT be the same. IMPORTANT NOTE: Once an Insider chooses to install a RS_PRERELEASE build, they cannot move back to receiving FE_RELEASE builds as their device will be on a higher build number. Insiders will still have the option to roll back to a previous version for up to 10 days or until you take another build. What’s new in Build 21277 Introducing x64 emulation in preview for Windows 10 on ARM PCs Windows Insiders with ARM PCs who install this build can try out x64 emulation by installing x64 apps from the Microsoft Store or from any other location of their choosing. For more details on this experience, please head on over and read this blog post from Hari Pulapaka! Adding Support for Unicode Emoji 12.1 and 13.0 Starting with this build, Insiders will get their first look at the emoji we’ve designed to support Emoji 12.1 and 13.0! This update brings over 200 new glyphs to Windows – including bubble tea, a smiling face with tear, a ninja, a magic wand, and more: As part of this change, we’re introducing a gender-neutral emoji design, which you can now select alongside the corresponding male or female design in our emoji panel and touch keyboard: You’ll also find we’ve made some tweaks to our existing emoji to improve cross-platform consistency: (OLD) (NEW) To bring up the emoji panel and check out all the changes, press Windows key + Period (.) or Windows key + Semicolon (;). One final note: we’ve made several improvements to our emoji search terms based on your feedback – if you update to today’s build and still find the expected emoji isn’t being returned when you search for it, please let us know! You can file feedback for this in the Feedback Hub under Input and Language > Emoji panel. Please specify what words you used, and which emoji you expected to appear. Changes and Improvements We’ve updated the animation when opening or closing a window to make the transition smoother. Do you notice a difference? Let us know! Based on Insider feedback, you can now use the built-in screen snipping experience in Windows (WIN + SHIFT + S) to create a snip of your screen and paste it directly into a folder of your choice in File Explorer to save the screenshot there. Try it out! (This was released to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel as part of the recent Windows Feature Experience Pack update.) Using the touch keyboard in a portrait posture on a 2-in-1 touch device now supports split keyboard mode. (This was released to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel as part of the recent Windows Feature Experience Pack update.) It’s now possible to uninstall the Snipping Tool. If you choose to uninstall it, it can be reinstalled via the Optional Features page in Settings. We’ve made some adjustments to improve the scaling logic of the graphs in Task Manager’s Performance tab. We’ve updated Registry Editor so that the Find window, renaming a key, and other places all now support CTRL + Backspace to delete words at a time. When using the Delete key or Dismiss button in Action Center to clear groups of notifications, Narrator will now announce that the notification group has been cleared instead of just moving focus to the next notification group. Based on feedback we’re adjusting a few strings in Offline Maps Settings to improve clarity. To help you find what you’re looking for faster, we’ve updated our folder logic in Start menu’s all apps list so that if a folder only contains a single item we will now display that item in place of the folder. Fixes We fixed an issue resulting in some users seeing error 0x80070426 when using their Microsoft account to sign into various apps.

We fixed an issue where Background Settings was still displaying a link to “Sync your settings” although this option is no longer supported. We fixed an issue resulting in some apps in Apps & Features Settings to display unexpectedly dimmed. We fixed an issue that could result in no screenshot being copied to your clipboard after pressing WIN + Shift + S. We fixed an issue that could result in a bug check with error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL when playing games with hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling enabled. We fixed an issue where a slight drag on a modifier key on the touch keyboard (such as CTRL or Shift) while it was being held down could result in the key becoming stuck down. We fixed an issue where the clipboard icon in the touch keyboard (when there was content available to be pasted) was unexpectedly small. We’ve fixed a few issues impacting touch keyboard performance. We fixed an issue impacting touch keyboard reliability in the last few flights.

We fixed an issue where the kana input mode state in the Japanese IME’s context menu could get out of sync with the actual state. We fixed an issue when using the Japanese IME resulting in an unexpected, continued increase in ctfmon.exe handle usage after every focus switch. We fixed an issue where when typing using the Japanese IME in a browser’s URL bar, after using space to convert your string the up / down arrows to select the browser suggestions wouldn’t work. We’ve made a few fixes to address craftsmanship issues with the new voice typing experience. We fixed an issue where trying to use voice typing with when airplane mode was enabled would result in an expectedly large authentication pop up appearing. We fixed an issue where voice typing could get stuck initializing and never start listening.

We fixed an issue that could result in you seeing your display turn on after existing Modern Standby but shortly afterwards bug check saying that it took too long for the display to turn on. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders seeing a bug check recently citing an issue with Memory Management. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders seeing a bug check recently saying System Service Exception. We fixed an issue that could result in sections of Task Manager’s Performance tab not responding to mouse scroll wheel or touchpad pan events.

Known issues We’re working on a fix for an issue resulting in some users seeing a popup that says “Your PC ran into a problem and will restart in 1 min” after logging in to Windows with either an Azure Active Directory or Active Directory account. If you encounter it, please save any data immediately and your system will restart automatically. We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build. Live previews for pinned sites aren’t enabled for all Insiders yet, so you may see a grey window when hovering over the thumbnail in the taskbar. We’re continuing to work on polishing this experience. We’re working on enabling the new taskbar experience for existing pinned sites. In the meantime, you can unpin the site from the taskbar, remove it from the edge://apps page, and then re-pin the site. We’re working on a fix for an issue where no drives appear under Settings > System > Storage > Manage Disks and Volumes. As a workaround, you can manage your disks in the classic Disk Management tool. Updates for developers The Windows SDK is now flighting continuously with the Dev Channel. Whenever a new OS build is flighted to the Dev Channel, the corresponding SDK will also be flighted. You can always install the latest Insider SDK from aka.ms/InsiderSDK.

  2. Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20277 (FE_RELEASE) to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. Starting today, we are giving Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel the option to receive builds from the RS_PRERELEASE branch. These builds will be offered as an optional update through the “seeker” experience in Windows Update. This means Insiders will have to go and choose to install the currently offered RS_PRERELEASE build. Today, Insiders can choose to install Build 21277. Once they do, they will continue to receive RS_PRERELEASE builds going forward. Insiders who choose to stay put will continue to automatically get builds from the FE_RELEASE until we move all Insiders in the Dev Channel to receiving RS_PRERELEASE builds sometime after the holidays. We still need Insiders running FE_RELEASE builds and giving us feedback on these builds so its ok if you choose to stay on these builds. Be sure to check the list of known issues below. The list of fixes and known issues between FE_RELEASE builds and RS_PRERELEASE builds will NOT be the same. As a reminder, Dev Channel builds are not matched to a specific Windows 10 release. IMPORTANT NOTE: Once an Insider chooses to install a RS_PRERELEASE build, they cannot move back to receiving FE_RELEASE builds as their device will be on a higher build number. Insiders will still have the option to roll back to a previous version for up to 10 days or until you take another build. Fixes We fixed an issue that could result in the WinRE volume label being lost after multiple upgrades. We fixed an issue that could result in apps failing to update with error code 0x80073D02.

  3. Today, we’re releasing the first preview of x64 emulation for ARM64 devices to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel starting with the Build 21277. It can be installed on Windows 10 on ARM PCs by following the instructions as explained in this blog post. When we first launched Windows 10 on ARM in late 2017, the long tail of apps customers needed were dominated by 32-bit-only x86 applications, so we focused our efforts on building an x86 emulator that could run the broad ecosystem of Windows apps seamlessly and transparently. Over time, the ecosystem has moved more toward 64-bit-only x64 apps and we’ve heard the feedback that customers would like to see those x64 apps running on ARM64. That’s why we are working on expanding the capability of our emulation to include x64 applications and sharing this first preview to gather feedback. While we’re expanding the capabilities of our emulator, for the best possible experience we recommend developers support their apps natively on ARM64. ARM64 apps are fully supported in our Windows SDK and Visual Studio 2017 onwards, and we encourage our developers to recompile their apps for ARM64. In this preview, you can install x64 apps from the Microsoft Store or from any other location of your choosing. You can try key x64-only productivity apps like Autodesk Sketchbook, as well as games like Rocket League. Other apps, like Chrome, which run today on ARM64 as 32-bit apps, can run as 64-bit using the new x64 emulation capability. These apps may benefit from having more memory when run as 64-bit emulated apps. In the spirit of the Dev Channel, this capability is still in development and will continue to improve in both compatibility and performance over time, so some of the apps you try running in emulation may not work initially. As you test and try the build, share your feedback with us on the experience in Windows Feedback Hub by using the subcategory x64 Apps on ARM. Your feedback will play a key role in ensuring we are aware of the scenarios most important to you so we can focus on refining them as we provide updates in the coming months. For the best app performance, please install a preview version of the Qualcomm Adreno graphics driver from the following locations: Samsung Galaxy Book S: https://aka.ms/x64previewdriver Lenovo Flex 5G: https://aka.ms/x64previewdriver Surface Pro X: https://aka.ms/x64previewdriverprox Additionally, to support running both ARM64 and x64 C++ applications at the same time, please install a preview version of the ARM64 C++ redistributable from https://aka.ms/arm64previewredist. These steps will not be required in future Insider Preview builds. With developers increasingly supporting ARM64 apps natively, emulating x64 apps is an important step in our journey with Windows 10 on ARM. Through working with Qualcomm Technologies, Windows 10 on ARM PCs continue to deliver incredible battery life, connectivity capabilities with 4G LTE and 5G, and immersive experiences with AI acceleration, pen and touch capabilities – all features we believe to be more essential as we work, learn, and connect from home and other remote locations. From the unveiling of new Windows 10 on ARM devices like the Acer Spin 7, the Lenovo Flex 5G and the new Surface Pro X, to the announcement of compatibility on ARM through App Assure, the releases of ARM64-native Microsoft Teams, a fully optimized browsing experience with native Microsoft Edge, to the OpenGL/OpenCL compatibility layer, and the beta version of ARM64-native Photoshop as well as ARM64-native Adobe Lightroom that was released this week – we are committed to listening to customer feedback to ensure Windows 10 on ARM provides a great customer experience. We look forward to the feedback from our Windows Insider community. If you’d like to try the emulation preview and are not yet part of the Windows Insider Program you can join here. source: https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2020/12/10/introducing-x64-emulation-in-preview-for-windows-10-on-arm-pcs-to-the-windows-insider-program/
  4. Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19603 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. You can check out our Windows Insider Program documentation here, including a list of all the new features and updates released in builds so far. Not seeing any of the features in this build? Check your Windows Insider Settings to make sure you’re on the Fast ring. Submit feedback here to let us know if things weren’t working the way you expected. If you want a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring, head over to Flight Hub. Please note, there will be a slight delay between when a build is flighted and when Flight Hub is updated. What’s new in Build 19603 File Explorer Integration in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) If you have WSL installed and open up File Explorer, you’ll see a familiar face! We’ve had the ability to access your Linux files since Windows 1903, but now you can easily get to them from your left-hand navigation pane in File Explorer. Selecting the Linux icon will show you a view of all your distros, and selecting those will place you in the Linux root file system for that distro. User cleanup recommendations in Storage Settings Free up disk space with this Storage Settings feature that gathers unused files and apps so you can digitally cleanse your device. Windows cannot predict whether you want to delete personal files, uninstall apps, or remove local copies of files synced to the cloud. With this tool, all the content is gathered in one page and removable by you with a few clicks. Other updates for Insiders Introducing Microsoft News Bar (Beta) We would love to get your early feedback from Insiders on a new news consumption app for Windows 10. This News Bar brings you the latest news from the Microsoft News network of over 4,500 publishers across the globe. It’s there to keep you up to date when you need it, how you need it, and where you need it. You can customize the experience to make it just right for you. If you need to focus, minimize it with a click, and bring it back when you’re ready. A few cool things about this app: Stories are continuously updated throughout the day. Hover for quick access or select to get the full story. Provides News and Stocks today, with Weather and Sports coming in the future. Highly configurable, allowing you to place it on the side you want it, change the background color, change the appearance of what is shown, and which country you want the news from. Supports dark and light themes in Windows 10. Supports Multiple Monitors. The News Bar is only available for your Windows 10 PC. Get the News Bar here. Give it a try and let us know how we can make it better! Raw Image Extension now supports Canon CR3 format Support for Canon’s latest CR3 raw format has been a popular request ever since the Raw Image Extension was announced and then released to the store in 2019. If you’ve been waiting for this feature, we have good news for you. The latest version of the extension (1.0.307610.0) that’s now flighting to Windows Insiders includes support for Canon CR3 files, increased camera support, and several bug fixes. Check out this libraw.org documentation for a complete list of supported cameras. Please note that GoPro raw camera format (.GPR) is still not supported. Here is how to try this out: If you have a previous version of the extension installed on your device, first you should confirm if your current installation has been automatically updated to the latest version (version 1.0.307610.0). Use these steps: Go to Settings > Apps. Search for and select Raw Image Extension. Select Advanced options from under the name of the extension. If the displayed version number on the Advanced options page is 1.0.307610.0 or later, then you are up to date. Otherwise, search for Raw Image Extension from the Store app to go the app page. If you’d previously installed the app on your device, the update should start automatically. If not, select the Update button or if the app wasn’t already installed on the device, select Get, followed by the Install Note: This version is currently only available to Windows Insiders. We would love to get your feedback. Please send your feedback through Feedback Hub under the Devices and Drivers > Video Playback category. General changes & improvements Going forward, services that are implemented by binaries residing in the user profiles will be persisted on upgrades. Narrator will no longer automatically enable scan mode when interacting with the Ideas pane in Excel. In the new Microsoft Edge, Narrator now automatically enables scan mode and starts reading webpages. Fixes We are removing the known issue for incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. If you run into issues playing games that use BattlEye anti-cheat software, please submit feedback on these issues to us via Feedback Hub. We fixed an issue causing webcams to not function correctly when attempting to make a video call in Microsoft Teams. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a green screen citing an error with mssecflt.sys when starting safe mode on recent builds. We fixed an issue resulting in the WIN + PrtScn keyboard shortcut no longer saving a picture to file. We fixed several reported stability issues with Narrator, including a fix where it will no longer crash when selecting text in scan mode with new Edge when remote operations are off. We fixed an issue leading to the Narrator Quick Start guide crashing while traversing it with Narrator. We fixed an issue where the EXE property information was incomplete in Task Manager for EoAExperiences.exe. We fixed an issue resulting in some devices experiencing a bugcheck (GSOD) during the reboot to install an update. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a sporadic bugcheck (GSOD) with the error CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. We fixed a bugcheck with error KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED some Insiders were experiencing when trying to sign out from the current user. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders receiving driver compatibility warnings when trying to update to a newer build in certain virtual environments. We fixed an issue that led to inaccurate size estimates for disk cleanup when the option to clean up old Windows installation files was included. We fixed an issue where Storage settings would say the option to clean old Windows installation files wasn’t available, because it had been automatically removed after a certain number of days, when actually you had manually selected to remove it. We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing when navigating to Network & Internet for some Insiders. We fixed an issue where you would see a notification from the Shared Experiences page saying your account needed fixing, however the Fix Now option on the page wouldn’t work. We fixed an issue where if the Cortana icon was turned off on the taskbar, it might still partially display on secondary monitors. We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to drag and drop files into the root of a network share folder. We fixed an issue where the IME context menu wouldn’t appear when pressing Shift+F10 if the display language was something other than English. We fixed an issue that could result in IMEs created for Amharic and Sinhala to not input text until rebooting your PC. We fixed a crash some Insiders were encountering when switching window focus while an IME candidate pane was open. Known issues We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3 that resolves the known issue with Edge. We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build. The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle). Sticky Notes windows can’t be moved on the desktop. As a workaround, when you set focus to Sticky Notes, press Alt + Space. This will bring up a menu that contains a Move option. Select it, then use either the arrow keys or the mouse to move the window. We’re investigating reports that app icons in the taskbar are having rendering issues, including defaulting to the .exe icon. We’re investigating reports that the battery icon on the lock screen always shows close to empty, regardless of actual battery levels. We’re investigating reports of IIS configuration being set to default after taking a new build. You will need to back up your IIS configuration and restore it after the new build is installed successfully. Language packs may fail to install on this build. This is most impactful for anyone who chooses to reset their PC – the language packs you have prior to upgrading will persist. Anyone impact by this may notice some parts of the UI don’t display in your preferred language. Windows Insider Blog
  5. The main site is fantastic so this forum should be as well.🙂 Great to be here!
  6. The PlayStation 5 is nearly here, and when it arrives, Japanese players are going to have to contend with a change that seems simple on the surface but could be massive in reality. Apparently, Sony is changing the function of some of the PlayStation 5’s controller buttons in Japan, swapping the functionality of the “X” and “O” buttons. That, as you might imagine, is going to be frustrating for Japanese players who are already used to the current functionality of the DualShock 4 and the controllers that came before it. The change was revealed in a recent hands-on article from Famitsu, and that article brought about a revelation for those of us here in the west: while the PlayStation games we play usually map confirm or accept to “X” and back or cancel to “O,” it’s the other way around in Japan. There, the “O” is accept and the “X” button is cancel, and it’s been that way since the first PlayStation launched. With the PlayStation 5 and the DualSense controller, Sony is swapping the functionality of those buttons in Japan, bringing their functionality in line with the rest of the world. It’s a simple change, but as VR developer Kenji Iguchi explains on Twitter, it’s one that will have Japanese players trying to undo more than two decades of muscle memory. “In Japan, the ‘Circle = Good, OK, Correct’ symbolism has been common knowledge for many decades. When designing the original PlayStation controller, it was likely that the placement of the O/X were hence made to match the Super Famicom’s A/B, and were utilized similarly,” Iguchi explained. Indeed, Nintendo’s controllers use a similar layout, and if you compare a Switch Pro Controller with an Xbox One controller, you’ll notice that the A and B button positions are swapped. So, once the PlayStation 5 and its DualSense controller land in Japan later this year, it seems that quite a few gamers will have to deal with the frustration that comes with muscle memory that’s suddenly been rendered inaccurate. When you consider that Nintendo’s controllers will still be keeping the same layout, those who own both a Switch and PlayStation 5 are in for some particularly annoying struggles. https://www.slashgear.com/this-new-playstation-5-controller-reveal-confirms-a-button-surprise-05641121/

I been a part of a community down the road a ways for the last 20 years we Have The same basic set up. And yes I said 20 years... I'm old I'll be half a century in like 3 years. However there are some members older than me there. unfortunately one of them passed away in the last couple years and I believe he was pushing 80. cool guy HooHaa was cool guy. RIP OK I probly already said more than I needed to but Didn't really say anything about me so can any questions just ask and thanks for having me. EDIT: TL;DR Hi I'm Justin Sane, I'm from a place down the road very similar to this. Not new to the game and I'm Always friendly and ready to help... unless provoked. But that takes a lot.
  8. Astronomers announced today that they have discovered a new type of planet - a rocky world weighing 17 times as much as Earth. Theorists believed such a world couldn't form because anything so hefty would grab hydrogen gas as it grew and become a Jupiter-like gas giant. This planet, though, is all solids and much bigger than previously discovered "super-Earths," making it a "mega-Earth." "We were very surprised when we realized what we had found," says astronomer Xavier Dumusque of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), who led the data analysis and made the discovery. "This is the Godzilla of Earths!" adds CfA researcher Dimitar Sasselov, director of the Harvard Origins of Life Initiative. "But unlike the movie monster, Kepler-10c has positive implications for life." The team's finding was presented today in a press conference at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS). The newfound mega-Earth, Kepler-10c, circles a sunlike star once every 45 days. It is located about 560 light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco. The system also hosts a 3-Earth-mass "lava world," Kepler-10b, in a remarkably fast, 20-hour orbit. Kepler-10c was originally spotted by NASA's Kepler spacecraft. Kepler finds planets using the transit method, looking for a star that dims when a planet passes in front of it. By measuring the amount of dimming, astronomers can calculate the planet's physical size or diameter. However, Kepler can't tell whether a planet is rocky or gassy. Kepler-10c was known to have a diameter of about 18,000 miles, 2.3 times as large as Earth. This suggested it fell into a category of planets known as mini-Neptunes, which have thick, gaseous envelopes. The team used the HARPS-North instrument on the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG) in the Canary Islands to measure the mass of Kepler-10c. They found that it weighed 17 times as much as Earth - far more than expected. This showed that Kepler-10c must have a dense composition of rocks and other solids. "Kepler-10c didn't lose its atmosphere over time. It's massive enough to have held onto one if it ever had it," explains Dumusque. "It must have formed the way we see it now." Planet formation theories have a difficult time explaining how such a large, rocky world could develop. However, a new observational study suggests that it is not alone. Also presenting at AAS, CfA astronomer Lars A. Buchhave found a correlation between the period of a planet (how long it takes to orbit its star) and the size at which a planet transitions from rocky to gaseous. This suggests that more mega-Earths will be found as planet hunters extend their data to longer-period orbits. The discovery that Kepler-10c is a mega-Earth also has profound implications for the history of the universe and the possibility of life. The Kepler-10 system is about 11 billion years old, which means it formed less than 3 billion years after the Big Bang. The early universe contained only hydrogen and helium. Heavier elements needed to make rocky planets, like silicon and iron, had to be created in the first generations of stars. When those stars exploded, they scattered these crucial ingredients through space, which then could be incorporated into later generations of stars and planets. This process should have taken billions of years. However, Kepler-10c shows that the universe was able to form such huge rocks even during the time when heavy elements were scarce. "Finding Kepler-10c tells us that rocky planets could form much earlier than we thought. And if you can make rocks, you can make life," says Sasselov. This research implies that astronomers shouldn't rule out old stars when they search for Earth-like planets. And if old stars can host rocky Earths too, then we have a better chance of locating potentially habitable worlds in our cosmic neighborhood. Source
  9. The Spamhaus Project will soon publish two new data feeds intended to prevent people from being lured to malware-infected websites and domains. The organization, which has long been in the forefront of efforts to stop junk mail, said the two data sets are part of its Domain Block List (DBL), a database updated constantly with spammy domains appearing in emails. The DBL data feed can be incorporated into mail server software that scans messages for the presence of those blacklisted domains. The new data sets will make the DBL more effective and versatile while allowing for a near-zero false positive rate, Spamhaus wrote on its blog on Sunday. The first data set focuses on domain names that have been identified as distributing malware or command-and-control software for botnets, Spamhaus wrote. It is similar to Spamhaus' Botnet Controller List, but instead focusing on domain names rather than IP addresses. "Users contacting these domains may either get infected or may already be infected with malicious software," Spamhaus wrote. "By deploying this subset of the DBL it is possible to prevent users from becoming infected or to find users that are already infected." The second data set consists of legitimate domains that are hosting websites which have been compromised. Spamhaus wrote that websites using outdated versions of content management system software, such as Joomla or WordPress, are often targeted. Spammers place files on those Web pages that will redirect users to other sites, and those URLs are then used in the spam messages. Since the domains often have a good reputation, security software may not stop people from browsing to the sites, which spammers exploit "to improve the delivery of their spam and prolong the lifespan of the spam's payload and landing sites," Spamhaus wrote. The new data feeds have new "return codes," which are so-called loopback IP addresses, which indicate why a certain resource is being blocked. Spamhaus said administrators should make sure their software handles the return codes correctly. The new return codes will being appearing in its data feeds starting July 1, Spamhaus wrote. Source
