Windows 10 uses AI in new system for updates

One of the complaints of  Windows 10  users is that many times when they are working and an update occurs that restarts the computer, interrupting what they are doing. Microsoft previously took some measures to control this problem but still, users keep complaining that updates in some cases keep restarting the operating system when they are using the device. Now to try to fix this that is still a problem for many, when the user has a pending update Microsoft changed the logic it used to reboot through a new system that is better adapted and proactive.

The last person you distrust is your mother. If she sends you a message requesting a code because the poor thing has been involved and you give it to her. The next moment, you can no longer use your WhatsApp account. Your mother was not your mother,  but a cracker who has impersonated her from her phone number . For a few months, we have seen a new form of identity theft arrive:  writing to you from the number of your own acquaintances and relatives so that you do not suspect . It is a chain attack to take over your WhatsApp account and continue the attack by writing to your contacts, and so on.
