Threats and Vulnerabilities of Cloud Computing: A Review

    Summary:
In order to protect and safeguard data, many companies and organizations are now moving to cloud computing for data storage, preservation and easily accessibility of data when required.
This resource tells us about the various threats and vulnerabilities which can attack data and in turn harm the organization or put the company at risk. Spectre and Meltdown are also considered one of the threat which can be harmful. Below are the details from the resource –
A weakness in the system working can be termed as vulnerability and when such a or many vulnerabilities are exploited by attackers it may prove to be a threat to the system. One such threat or vulnerability which can be harmful to the working of system is Spectre and Meltdown.
Spectre and Meltdown: These are the latest discovered set of vulnerabilities. Any computer chip manufactured almost two decades ago also can be affected by this threat. Once attacked, these exploits can allow the attacker to access any and every information on the system which seemed to be safe and secured. The attacker can gain access any information from the kernel with unauthorized login granted by this exploit and moreover if you are a root user, who are privileged to read the information on the host kernel also. Although patches are available to deal with this, but still these patches does not guarantee full security, it will only make the attackers task hard. Unfortunately these patches decrease the overall performance of the system.

    Prior to 1985, there were very fewOperating Systems (OSes) that used Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs). Find and summarise ONE resource that describes ONE of these GUI operating systems. The OS must have been release prior to 1985 so cannot be Microsoft Windows.
    List of GUI-Based Operating System and Its History

URL: http:
e-techinnews.blogspot.in/2012/06/list-of-gui-based-operating-system-and.html
    Summary:
Graphical user Interface allows a user to have a friendly interface with computers. It is more than an operating system which makes the interaction between computer and user more interactive. It is the result of GUI that computers have been so attractive and easier to operate in recent times.
GUI technology has been used since many years to develop various user friendly operating systems. The first eve GUI OS developed was by Apple in the name of Macintosh. Later other developer also started developing software’s and operating systems based on GUI application. Below is the description of one the GUI operated system in the year developed prior to 1985.
Mac OS System 1.0
For the purpose of Macintosh, this GUI operating system was developed. It is believed that this operating system had many features like that of a modern operating system. It had a feature of displaying icons for every window and also did it allowed users to click these icons with the help of mouse. Feature of dragging and pasting files to one or many folders was also available in this software, Thus a user can simply click a file and drag it to any desired location thus making the work easier. This operating system was developed for Apple but now it is released as a new version for OSX Snow Leopard. Mac OS System 1.0 can be considered as one of the reason for making Apple having one of the best Graphical User Interface operating systems in the world.
