4 billion people still do not have access to the network

Probably will find people who complain that their 20 Mbit Internet connection is slow to download files. But they should be happy to have the privilege of using fast connections, as most of our population still does not have access to the network. The latest report shows that this year it will still be 4.2 billion people, and is 57 percent of humanity.

The Internet links in our homes are growing faster and faster, but there are still many people on the planet who can not benefit from this modern technology. The latest report from the United Nations Commission on Communications reveals that this year there will still be 57 per cent of the population, or around 4.2 billion people, permanently deprived of access to the network.

Access to the network depends mainly on the economic position, so as many as 80 percent of the population of fully developed countries can boast of a permanent Internet connection. Meanwhile, in developing countries, this percentage is only 6.7 percent.

Although the initiatives carried out by companies such as Google and Facebook can slightly improve the situation. The United Nations, however, believes that the real solution to the problem calls for more comprehensive action, above all to help the governments of these states, which should implement projects that reduce the number of digitally excluded citizens.

WD network drives vulnerable to attack

Site specialists warn that WD My Cloud network drives may be susceptible to hacking. There are many loopholes that cybercriminals may be able to circumvent.

Western Digital drives from the My Cloud family may be subject to hacker attacks. Specialists say that in most models, several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the security system that could allow for control. Hackers can remotely bypass the login, enter their own commands, and then upload files without the consent of the owner. This is possible due to poor implementation of scripts. Every executing command written in the network interface has full access to the operating system.

Western Digital has pretty quickly overcome the loop to circumvent the login, but by the way he created another gap. The team claims to have disclosed information about the presence of gaps, as it believes the company is not paying much attention to major security bugs.

That is why only sounding the case will force the manufacturer to fix them.
