How to uninstall programs and apps in Windows 10

InfoWorld - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 14:36

After using Windows 10 for a while, it becomes pretty clear that Microsoft is slowly moving as many former Control Panel functions as possible to the new Settings app. Given how central the Control Panel is (or was) to Windows, that must be a massive job.

Because of this switch, every now and then we can expect to see duplicated functionality in various regions of Windows 10. One example of this is how you uninstall traditional desktop programs in the new OS.

[ See InfoWorld's "Windows 10 review: Hold off if you use Windows 7." | Prepare for a future without Internet Explorer. | Stay up to date on the industry with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]

In Windows 8.1, you uninstall desktop programs the traditional way -- by heading to the Control Panel. You can still do that in Windows 10, but there are also two new methods: one in the Start menu, and one in the new Settings app.

Critical BIND denial-of-service flaw could disrupt large portions of the Internet

InfoWorld - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 13:44

Attackers could exploit a new vulnerability in BIND, the most popular Domain Name System (DNS) server software, to disrupt the Internet for many users.

The vulnerability affects all versions of BIND 9, from BIND 9.1.0 to BIND 9.10.2-P2, and can be exploited to crash DNS servers that are powered by the software.

[ Deep Dive: How to rethink security for the new world of IT. | Discover how to secure your systems with InfoWorld's Security newsletter. ]

The Domain Name System is the Internet's phone book. It's used to convert domain and host names into numerical Internet Protocol (IP) addresses that computers need to communicate with each other. The DNS is made up of a global network of servers and a very large number of them run BIND, a software package developed and maintained by a nonprofit corporation called the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC).
