Amazon extends work from home option till June

By Kanishka Singh

(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc <AMZN.O> on Tuesday told employees whose work can be done from home that they can do so until June, extending the timeline on a return to office due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Employees who work in a role that can effectively be done from home are welcome to do so until June 30, 2021”, an Amazon spokeswoman said in an emailed statement on Tuesday, adding the guidance is applicable globally.

Microsoft adds option to disable JScript in Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer logo

As part of the October 2020 Patch Tuesday security updates, Microsoft has added a new option to Windows to let system administrators disable the JScript component inside Internet Explorer.

The JScript scripting engine is an old component that was initially included with Internet Explorer 3.0 in 1996 and was Microsoft’s own dialect of the ECMAScript standard (the JavaScript language).

Development on the JScript engine ended, and the component was deprecated with the release of Internet Explorer 8.0 in 2009, but the engine remained in all Windows OS versions as a legacy component inside IE.

Across the years, threat actors realized they could attack the JScript engine, as Microsoft wasn’t actively developing it and only rarely shipped security updates, usually only when attacked by threat actors.

CVE-2018-8653, CVE-2019-1367, CVE-2019-1429, and CVE-2020-0674 are some of the recent JScript zero-days that Microsoft had to deal with over the past three years.
