Hi %%First Name%%,

Samsung Electronics has taken a battering from the recall and subsequent cessation of production of its Galaxy Note7 device and this is reflected in its results for the third quarter.


Optus has launched a 24/7 sports channel dedicated to cricket over the summer months as part of an exclusive content partnership with Cricket Australia.

Consumer complaints about services provided by Telstra and Optus dropped in the three months from July to September, contrasting with a rise in complaints for other telecoms service providers, including Vodafone.

The worst thing about a distributed denial of service attack is not the attack itself. Rather, it is the slew of bottom-feeders who appear on the horizon after the deed and try to profit from the misery of others.

New Zealand’s largest telco Spark is partnering with rapidly growing online magazine The Spinoff to produce a new music section on Spinoff’s website.

New figures from Norton by Symantec state that just 19% of small businesses in Australia and 9% in New Zealand are looking to purchase cyber cover in 2017.

Oracle has followed up words with actions, filing papers on Wednesday US time to appeal the fair use jury verdict which went Google's way in May, over the latter's use of 37 Java APIs in Android.

Cyber-attacks, hacks, breaches, data loss, DDoS, ransomware and more are a fact of life, but so far it seems only the big end of town, not SMEs, receive the publicity. It is a case of when, not if, the Australian government will introduce mandatory data breach notification revealing the true extent of the pain.

And of course, there's plenty more so for all the news visit www.itwire.com.

Have a great day!
