co-owner of the Kansas City cocktail bar Snow & Co. is close to the dilemma Snow & Co bought a point of sale system less than a year ago from the payments servicer Micros — only to be told within a few months of the need for an upgrade to Windows 7 at a cost of $1700 for the single-store system Luckily Snow & Co was still under a service agreement so its upgrade was free But as Nevins puts it “If you’re a small business an unexpected $1700 might be like eh I’ll go ahead and take my chances” Moreover Nevins describes a “huge line” of Micros customers waiting for an upgrade He’s crossing his fingers that Snow & Co will be upgraded before the April 8 deadline MORE: Video demos: Microsoft’s Office running on Apple’s iPad Costs to retail credit card processors will vary widely says John Berkeley of Mercury Payment Systems “If you have the right hardware you can just upgrade the OS but for some merchants upgrading from XP to Windows 7 can mean all new hardware” likely costing much more than that $1700 The challenges of upgrading becomes even bigger in the case of ATMs ATM manufacturers are offering software upgrades for machines still based on XP — though some of those have been available for less than a month But the cost to upgrade can be staggering According to Jay Weber vice president in charge of North American Debit and ATM systems for FIS Global “an ATM machine purchased in the last five years would only need a software upgrade of $4000 to 5000 per machine” That software cost is so high in part because much specialized software written for Windows XP can’t be easily ported to a new operating system But ATMs 10 years old or more would need to be completely replaced and Weber says that new high-end ATMs can cost at least $50000 to $60000 per device ATM operators and business owners are largely being left to decide on their own whether to upgrade or not says Weber “Organizations are trying to look at the investment of the upgrade and weight it against their perceived risk” — and many seem to be ready to take their chances “[April 9th] is going to come and go and there are going to be some merchants who haven’t done it yet” says Berkeley Weber speculates that “it’s going to be a trickle approach a slower ramp up” with many systems going without an upgrade — and remaining officially insecure — through the end of 2014 MORE: Can Microsoft make enterprise search better This hesitancy may be worsened because operators are getting mixed messages about their risk The Payments Card Industry Security Standards Council has issued public warnings about the need for retailers to upgrade their point of sale systems but their current set of standards which are used to determine eligibility to operate on credit card networks do not require it And Weber himself seems sanguine: “The risk is hard to quantify There’s a lot of technology in place in the marketplace to help mitigate the risk” such as the “fairly closed telecom environment” that most payment systems operate on But Bogdan Botezatu Senior E-Threat Analyst for the antimalware software company Bitdefender couldn’t disagree more He talks about the issue with the barely-suppressed terror of a father watching his teenage son drive solo for the first time “They’re not panicky” he says “and actually that makes me panicky” Botezatu who haunts underground hacking forums to keep an eye on looming security threats claims that hackers are gearing up to raid suddenly insecure XP machines the minute Microsoft support ends “When an operating system is announced as reaching its end of life [hackers] are frantically looking for exploits because then they can use it indefinitely” he says “It’s the holy grail of malware” To take fullest advantage of the situation black-market vendors selling new XP exploits have been stockpiling them waiting to release them until after Microsoft is no longer monitoring and repairing security flaws Though third-party security firms will continue to update antimalware programs for XP users not running or updating such software could be permanently vulnerable to an ever-growing set of exploits Mercury Payment Systems’ John Berkeley confirms that “If a hacker discovers [a vulnerability] a month or two after the end of [XP support] they have more time to exploit that” MORE: Microsoft culture must change chairman says These exploits could range from stealing credit card information from small vendors to even more dramatic forms of theft many of them easily circumventing external security measures such as the semi-closed payments network Botezatu says there have been reports of an ATM exploit through a mobile phone connected through an ATM’s card reader He also cites a legendary stunt by the security expert Barnaby Jack at the Black Hat security conference in 2010 demonstrated a “Jackpotting” hack that easily emptied an XP-based ATM machine According to Botezatu Jack who died in 2013 never revealed the nature of this exploit meaning that it could remain an unpatched vulnerability in XP-based machines Most troubling of all Botezatu predicts that unsecured XP machines of all kinds will be compromised by hackers to form new botnets This kind of system in which hacked systems’ processors are put to new tasks unbeknownst to their owners can be used for everything from massive Denial of Service attacks to mining cryptocurrency and would add substantially to the insecurity of the internet as a whole “I see a lot of trouble” Botezatu warns Whether April 9th brings a plague of cash-spewing ATMs zombie PCs and thieving credit-card readers remains to be seen But Botezatu sounds exasperated that he even has to consider these scenarios “It’s an operating system that was released 13 years ago Everyone should have started migrating two or three years ago” to avoid the mad rush and risks that come with the end of support He hopes at least that this episode will motivate today’s users to think about the future “This is going to happen soon with other operating systems” Botezatu says “You should start upgrading from Windows 7 now” Contact us at editors@timecomNew Delhi: India maintained their dubious record of being among top 10 nations with regards to doping violations finishing joint sixthin World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report The global body’s report is based on samples collected in 2016 In the latest report published Thursday India have 69 Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRV) the same as that of Russia a country which has been under intense international scrutiny for years now File image from WADA’s headquarters AFP However India can take solace from the fact that they have significantly improved their position after being joint third for three years in a row from 2013-15 The last report of 2015 had 117 sportspersons from the country being punished after testing positive for banned substances Italy topped the rankings of drug cases in 2016 accounting for 147 ADRVs followed by France (86) United States (76) Australia (75) Belgium (73) Brazil and Iran are at joint eighth with 55 ADRVs while South Africa are at 10th with 50 The number of dope violations for India have reduced but the trend of sports which are mostly under the scanner remain same Athletics has 21 offenders expectedly followed by weightlifting and powerlifting with 14 each Kabaddi has nine dope offenders while wrestling contributed five Aquatics bodybuilding handball (university) para-athletics taekwondo and volleyball contributed one each to make it a total count of 69 "I am happy that the number of doping violatins has decreased and our position has improved though we need to do even more" NADA DG Navin Agarwal said "Our concerted effort has started showing results We have been focussing at school and college levels and we are doing a lot of awareness and educative programmes We have a zero tolerance on doping and athletes at a young age should know that he or she cannot escape with doping He or she will be caught at some stage" Agarwal added The report shows that NADA tested 2831 samples during that year The world over also athletics had more cases than any other individual sport with 205 ahead of bodybuilding with 183 Cycling was third with 165 cases while the drug-tainted sport of weightlifting was fourth with 116 Football moved up to fifth in the rankings with 79 cases though the total number of cases was smaller than 2015 when they reported 108 cases In total WADA dealt with 1595 doping rule violations across 112 sports in 2016 down from 1929 cases in 2015 A total of 1326 rule violations arose from positive drug tests while the remainder were derived from investigations and evidence-based intelligence increasingly seen as a key weapon in the war on dope cheats "We are continuing to see the impact of intelligence-based testing an area of increasing focus for the Agency as we strengthen our investigations and intelligence-gathering capacity" WADA President Craig Reedie said in a statement "While ‘in’ and ‘out’ of competition testing remains critical to detecting doping recent events have shown that investigative work is becoming ever more important as we look to protect clean athletes’ rights worldwide" he added Organised Private Sector OPS has opposed the new Land Use Charge Law of Lagos State 2018 endorsed by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode They described the law which repealed the Land Use Charge Law 2001 as insensitive to business and land owners Director-General of Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association NECA Olusegun Oshinowo noted that the new law would expect property owners in Lagos State to pay an increase of over 200 per cent in Land Use Charge “The sensitivity and humanness which is part of good governance is missing in the recent amendment of the Land Use Charge law in the state” he told Vanguard “The new law will expect property owners in Lagos State to pay an increase of over 200 per cent in Land Use Charge even when the income of the property owner has not experienced significant increase to justify the charge “There is also a penalty payment ranging between 125-200 percent if payment is not made between April and August 2018 “The new charge is thus highly insensitive and inhumane to say the least It is therefore unacceptable to organised businesses “The law is not acceptable and the Organised Private Sector (OPS) will not stand hand tied up to celebrate impunity and cheer disdain “OPS will fight this law by social resistance and any other legitimate means at its disposal” The Kogi State Police Command on Wednesday announced an indefinite ban on rally public procession and demonstration in all parts of the state The Commissioner
