Nerves Rattled By Highly Suspicious Windows Update Delivered Worldwide

An anonymous reader writes: If you’re using Windows 7 you might want to be careful about which updates you install. Users on Windows forums are worried about a new “important” update that looks a little suspect. Ars reports: “‘Clearly there’s something that’s delivered into the [Windows Update] queue that’s trusted,’ Kenneth White, a Washington DC-based security researcher, told Ars after contacting some of the Windows users who received the suspicious update. ‘For someone to compromise the Windows Update server, that’s a pretty serious vector. I don’t raise the alarm very often but this has just enough characteristics of something pretty serious that I think it’s worth looking at.'” UPDATE: Microsoft says there’s nothing to worry about, the company “incorrectly published a test update.”

OS X El Capitan launches Wednesday

Apple today reminded Mac owners that they can download OS X 10.11, aka El Capitan, free of charge starting tomorrow.

If the Cupertino, Calif., company follows past practice, it will add El Capitan to the Mac App Store around 10 a.m. PT.

The upgrade will run on the same Macs that now run last year’s Yosemite, 2013’s Mavericks, 2012’s Mountain Lion and 2011’s Lion, according to Apple’s system requirements. That means more than nine of out 10 Macs which were online in August should be able to install El Capitan.

This year’s version of OS X will be the third that Apple has handed out for free, a zero-dollars pricing it introduced with Mavericks. That, in turn, should trigger an immediate surge in its user share, an estimate of the percentage of all Macs running the operating system. The last two editions, Yosemite and Mavericks, accumulated user shares of 37% and 32%, respectively, by the end of their first full month of availability.

I joined Evernote as CEO two months ago because I saw the rare opportunity to help transform a product I rely on into a world class business. Since starting, I’ve gotten to know the amazing people here and have met many of our loyal users. This team has achieved three incredible feats: they’ve created one of the most important productivity tools in history, established one of the strongest personal success brands, and built a real revenue-driven business. My goal is to dramatically increase the impact of this solid foundation.

Evernote’s strength is in its core: notes, sync, and search. That’s where we’re going to focus. Achieving that focus means making some difficult decisions. Today we let go of 47 people from the Evernote team and announced the closure of three of our global offices. We are grateful for the immense contributions of each and every affected person.

I believe that a smaller, more focused team today will set us up for growth and expansion tomorrow. Here are two things that you can expect from us over the next several months: we will launch major foundational product improvements around the core features that you care about most, and we will pull back on initiatives that fail to support our mission.

The health of our business is just as important as the quality of our product. Here our fundamentals are stronger than they’ve ever been. There are millions of people with premium accounts and more than 20,000 companies working more productively with Evernote Business. Our paid subscription growth is very strong and almost entirely organic; the number of new paid subscribers is 40% higher than this time last year. Making these tough changes from a position of strength puts us on a path to long-term success.

This is an important moment in the life of our company. I want to thank all the Evernoters, past and present, for creating a product that is such a positive force in the lives of individuals and teams around the world. This company and this product are truly special, and I intend to keep it that way. I look forward to sharing more specific details with you in the months ahead. In the meantime, please send your thoughts to me directly at

– Chris
