Fake security updates for Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 3 are currently spreading as malware on the web. The malware programmers use spam e-mails to spread their work. What you would really install upon downloading these “updates” is a trojan horse.
Since Windows Live Messenger 2011 (code name “Wave 4”) was released last Thursday, I received some questions as to when Messenger Plus! will be updated to work with the new Messenger version. Here are some details.
Microsoft has released an update for its Windows Live Messenger App for iPhone. The update fixes numerous errors, but also contains several new features that have been included in Messenger Wave 4 as well.
From 15 September onwards, the social network Facebook is cutting off users still browsing the platform with the outdated Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 browser. The reason is that a new chat system is introduced.
The Hotmail team has finally finished the new Windows Live Wave 4 upgrade for all user accounts of Hotmail. According to the team, more than 350 million users in more than 220 countries now take advantage of this big update.
Recently the popular social network Twitter has technical problems in their systems. Twitter has seen the need to implement updates in order to be able to cope successfully with the recently increased load.
Users of Windows Live Hotmail should prepare for a change in the coming weeks. As announced, the new version of Hotmail will be available for some 370 million users worldwide gradually.
A minor update for Plus! 4.84 has been released, addressing that some users cannot use the changed resource file format created by Visual Studio 2010.
The first changes due to Messenger 2011 are introduced in Messenger 2009 now as well, as we noticed: The webcam feature is only usable on both sides.
There seems to be some confusion on the update to the webcam feature. When you want to send or view webcam in the recently upgraded Messenger version, you will launch a video call. This is a changed behavior, and people are quite confused about it.
