INNSBRUCK, Austria, Nov. 24, 2020 /CNW/ — Independent, ISO-certified security testing lab AV-Comparatives has released the results of its 2020 H2 Consumer Real-World Protection Test. Popular anti-malware programs for Microsoft Windows 10 from 17 different vendors were put through their paces.

“Protecting the consumers’ PC against cybercrime is an important task. Weddingphotos, documents, data must be protected. Alongside internet security software doing backups and updates is essential.” – Peter Stelzhammer, co-founder AV-Comparatives
The tested products had to defend against over 750 recent and prevalent malicious programs, downloaded from the Internet and show if they slow down the Windows 10 machine.

Hot on the heels of Nikon’s official webcam software release, Canon has announced its free full production version of the EOS Webcam Utility Software for both macOS and Windows, bringing with it compatibility for 43 EOS and PowerShot cameras and 14 video conferencing services.
Now officially out of beta, the software converts compatible Canon EOS interchangeable lens and PowerShot cameras into high-quality webcams for supported video conferencing services and streaming.
While Nikon’s software was brought out of Beta on November 4, 2020 and supports several popular interchangeable lens cameras and the most popular video conferencing services, it doesn’t include all of Nikon’s most recent cameras and none of its CoolPix line of point and shoots. The software is also limited in its compatibility with all the video conferencing services available.
Canon has gone above and beyond in this regard, bringing support to more cameras and more conferencing services than Nikon
Microsoft has warned Windows 10 users that they might be blocked from upgrading to Windows 10 versions 2004 or 20H2 due to a compatibility issue with Intel’s Thunderbolt NVMe SSD.
Whenever Microsoft releases a new feature update – even minor ones, like Windows 10 20H2, which is basically the same as version 2004 – hardware drivers invariably run into compatibility issues.
This time, Intel and Microsoft have found that a compatibility issue with these two versions of Windows 10 causes a nasty blue-screen error when plugging in an external NVMe SSD via Thunderbolt.

Microsoft warns that on either version of Windows 10 users might see a blue-screen error stating: ‘DRIVER_VERIFIER_DMA_VIOLATION (e6) An illegal DMA operation was attempted by a driver being verified.’
DMA refers to Direct Memory Access, which Thunderbolt has when plugged in, allowing a device to transfer data to and
One of the advantages of having a large display is being able to see two or more windows side-by-side.
This makes it easier to copy and paste between windows, see information from multiple sources at once, or just generally multitask.
How to split screen on Windows 10
Windows 10 has some built in features that make it easy to split the screen and “snap” windows to opposite sides of the display.
How to split the screen between two program windows
1. Choose the program window that you want to snap to one side of the screen. Click on its title bar and drag it to one side of the display until the mouse pointer touches the edge. When that happens, you should see the screen briefly flash and a light outline of where the window will appear on the screen. Release the mouse button.
FireEye, one of today’s top cybersecurity companies, has released a new pre-configured virtual machine (VM) that was specifically set up to help threat intelligence analysts hunt down adversaries.
Named the ThreatPursuit VM, this is a Windows 10 installation that comes with more than 50 software programs that are commonly used by threat intel analysts.
The idea behind ThreatPursuit is to provide companies with a ready-made OS that can be deployed to new workstations before, during, or after a security incident and provide threat intel analysts with a ready-to-use work environment.
For example, ThreatPursuit could be deployed to tens or hundreds of machines at the same time and scale up a security firm’s incident response capabilities.
It can also be deployed on computers inside a customer’s network when providing incident response in a remote location, where a victim company may be lacking a threat analysis environment.
