Intel puts security on chips to foil password hackers

Intel unveiled a new line of business chips Tuesday that could foil hacker attacks while reducing reliance on complicated company passwords that employees struggle with on a daily basis.

The enhancement is embedded in Intel’s latest sixth generation vPro processors designed for business computers. It operates in hardware, below the software that is commonly compromised by hackers.

The security feature, “called Intel Authenticate,” defends against “phishing” and other so-called social engineering schemes for tricking people into give up their passwords.

Instead of relying on complicated passwords, employees would be identified through various “factors.” These could be a short identification number, proximity of a company badge or a user’s smartphone, location of the PC and a thumbprint.

Clearing an employee “no longer has to rely solely on employees remembering complicated passwords,” the company said in its announcement.

“One of the biggest keys to this is there is a secure element inside the Intel processor that manages all of this,” said Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights and Strategy. “That wasn’t available before. A lot of different pieces had to come together.”

Intel vice president Tom Garrison said that corporate IT managers can decide what factors to use for identification. “IT has full control,” he said.

Garrison said an estimated 117,000 phishing attacks every day are trying to snag passwords and usernames.

The new chip will be tested by select businesses before it enters production, Garrison said.

    It doesn’t matter how low your score is or how many negatives are on your report. Your credit report could be as perfect for anything if you had the right contact. I used to have a low score of 420 and about some negative items including an eviction on my report. I knew I couldn’t quality for anything and thought my report would never get in shape. But life as a unexpectedly, proved to me that there could be light at the end of the tunnel. Yes there was really light. After being ripped off by online imposters many times, I finally met EXCELLENT REPAIRS. At first, I felt reluctant to give him a try. But when I finally did, I became ever thankful. My score was increased to a high 859 with all the negatives removed including the eviction just within 8 working days. I didn’t care about the cost because I had the best experience with EXCELLENT REPAIRS. I’m currently living in the comfort of a new big home and a new car.

    I have been very pleased with this incomparable credit repair specialist LEVELSEVEN. He’s service is totally amazing and satisfactory. A year ago I purchased a used car with a large down payment and a loan with an APR over 20% with a local finance company. With my credit, I had no other choice. Last weekend, after using LEVELSEVEN for some weeks now, I purchased a new car (Ford fusion) with very little down payment and financing with a national company. Best of all, my APR is just over 12%. I can’t thank him enough. Contact him today on (LEVELSEVEN@WORKMAIL.COM or +1 713-510-9681) he will defiantly put a smile on your face.

    Lexington Law is a huge rip-off scam. They tell you that they will fix your credit, they make very big promises to get you to sign their contract. You pay the monthly payments and getting nothing in return. I used them for about a year and my credit scores actually went down. We had a very sick child and had a lot of medical collections and because they inquired about those to try and dispute them it basically quote refreshed the debt thus making our scores lower. We were young and dumb back then. I recommend ^privateinvestigator1967 @ gmail . com^ He is a genius,get through with him today and you will be glad you did. He saved us from Financial ruins and bankruptcy…He deleted all the hard inquiries,late payment,collections,derogatories on our credit report and then proceeded to improving our credit score to the early 800’s

    We custom built our own home, but we turned out losing it when my husband and I both became unemployed. I continued paying all my other bills, especially my credit cards. My FICO score went from 740 to 401, because we continued to pay off our credit cards in a timely manner, and was paying more than the minimum; I still have very good credit with these companies. In fact, I have one Visa, one MasterCard and one American Express, all with the same terms and limits. I have a debt with a collection agency that the original bill (Cellphone Company) was in 2015 but not registered with collections until 2017. I have considered paying it off but the interest is more than double the amount (was 4200 now is 9400) I’m wondering what I should do. I have been very responsible over the last five years and paid everything else.I want to buy a home but Equifax leaves me with a score of 455 and TransUnion a score of 480. so I hired a Credit Fix expert ^gregoryivan07 @ gmail . com^,however to my amazement he raised my score to the mids 800..I still can’t believe my eyes but I am forever grateful to him for making my husband and I dreams become a reality..Anyone who needs this kind of service should hit him up..He’s affordable and delivers right on time.

    My score was really, really bad. Like, 411 bad. Most of what I saw on it was really old, states that it is “closed”, or from the mistake of letting my parents use my name on stuff and then not paying for it… Obviously, theres a ton of stuff and I’m over my head, so I was going to call Sky Blue Credit Repair but my friend advised not to hire them due to her not so good experience with them.
    So she gave me the contact info of her hacker buddy! I told she was messing around until I gave it a shot..To my utmost surprise he fixed my credit within 72 hours. I urge anyone who is in need of his service to touch base with him..He prefers to work with serious clients **cyberguru0101@ gmail . com** get through with him

    I have been in a chapter 13 a little over 1 year ago. I have a home still that I am paying for. My credit score went down to the 450 range. I went to a credit repair company to help me get my score up to buy another home. It seem that they was doing what I was paying them for, until I went to a auto dealer and they pull my credit score and it was less then what I started with before paying for help with trying to get it up..I was upset,devastated and frustrated so I spoke to a friend about my predicament …He said he knows a certified expert professional who could get me out of my credit woes and up my scores to my preferred choice..He said he has helped him for more than 5 exploits and he strongly recommend him..So I took a leap of faith and made use of his service..He provided me with proof after reaching an agreement with him and right now my credit scores is up 800’s …Get through with him today you will be glad you did…”derickjane at MAIL DOT RU”

I really need my credit to be temporarily increase because obviously it is updated every 31st by the bank, credit card company also reports and this make me worried before its turn permanent score by this hacker and i was surprised.
