Report: Microsoft buying digital pen firm N-Trig

Microsoft is believed to be buying Israeli firm N-Trig, the company behind the pressure-sensitive stylus included with the Surface Pro 3, for as much as $ 200 million, according to a report from Calcalist.

N-Trig has faced numerous financial difficulties over the last few years after the 2011 decision to focus on digital pens. Globes reports that the company had failed to meet financial conditions attached to a loan and that it was suffering heavy losses, leaving it with less than $ 5 million cash on hand. At its peak, the company was valued at $ 200 million to $ 300 million with plans to float on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. Those plans were cancelled last year.

Microsoft already held a 6.1 percent stake in N-Trig and was responsible for 79 percent of the company’s revenue. While the first two generations of Surface Pro used Wacom styluses, Microsoft switched to N-Trig hardware with the Surface Pro 3.

Pwned in 7 seconds: Hackers use Flash and IE to target Forbes visitors

Talk about determination. Hackers strung together zero-day vulnerabilities in Flash and Internet Explorer and then compromised Forbes.com so that the attacks would compromise financial services and defense contractor employees visiting the site, researchers said.

The November breach of Forbes compromised the Thought of the Day page that is displayed briefly upon visiting the site. The page downloaded attack code exploiting a vulnerability in what then was a fully updated version of Adobe Flash. To bypass Address Space Layout Randomization—a mechanism built into Flash and many other applications to make drive-by attacks harder—the Forbes page downloaded a second attack. The latter attack exploited a then-zero-day vulnerability in IE that allowed the Flash exploit to successfully pierce the exploit mitigation defense. From start to finish, the attack took about seven seconds.

“In the world of cyber threats, the chained 0-day exploit is a unicorn—the best known attack with chained 0-days was the Stuxnet attack allegedly perpetrated by US and Israeli intelligence agencies against Iran’s nuclear enrichment plant at Natanz as part of an operation known as Olympic Games,” a blog post detailing the attack explained. “Given the highly trafficked Forbes.com website, the exploit could have been used to infect massive numbers of visitors.” Instead, only visitors from US Defense and financial services firms were hacked.

Microsoft’s continuing efforts to be cool

There’s an old saying in Silicon Valley: “nobody ever got fired for using Amazon Web Services.” And among SV startups there are three business models that are en vogue: get bought out by Facebook, get bought out by Google, and get bought out by Apple.

Typically missing from this conversation is anything to do with Microsoft. Sure, it’s one of the largest IT companies in the world; sure, it has a huge cloud platform of its own; sure, it has popular and capable development tools, but ya know, it’s just not very cool, is it?

Microsoft’s successes—and it certainly has them—tend to feel rather corporate. Take Azure. It’s probably behind only AWS in terms of customers and adoption, but generally when Microsoft talks about how widely Azure is being used, the company normally talks about the number of Fortune 500 customers, and it doesn’t get more uncool and boring than that.
