Campsites in Andalucía call for an end to ban on guests staying more than six months: Campsites in Andalucía have asked the Junta regional government to lift a ban on stays longer than six months. The Andalusian campsite federation says that the ban goes against the Junta’s stated aim of reducing the seasonality of regional tourism by forcing people to move. They add that it discourages longer-stay winter camping by retired couples from northern Europe and doesn’t make sense as hotels don’t have the same restrictions placed on them. In the first six months of this year, 83,000 people checked into regional campsites.

DoctorLaptop Alert! The Push To Make Windows 7 Computers Obsolete I Warned About Is Here: Over 40 Drivers Could Let Hackers Install Persistent Backdoor On Windows PCs. Windows 8.1 and 10 patches are already out, Windows 7 patches may not be issued! If you own a device, or a hardware component, manufactured by ASUS, Toshiba, Intel, NVIDIA, Huawei, or other 15 other vendors listed below, you’re probably affected. So far only Windows 8.1 and 10 have issued fixes via Windows Updates or the Intel website. To be as safe as is currently possible, all Windows users need to be sure their drivers are all updated to current, all drivers, not just those provided by Microsoft.
A team of security researchers has discovered high-risk security vulnerabilities in more than 40 drivers from at least 20 different vendors that could allow attackers to gain most privileged permission on the system and hide malware in a way that remains undetected by security programs over time, sometimes for years.
“Some vulnerable drivers interact with graphics cards, network adapters, hard drives, and other devices,” researchers explain. “Persistent malware inside these devices could read, write, or redirect data stored, displayed, or sent over the network. Likewise, any of the components could be disabled as part of a DoS or ransomware attack.”
Researchers have reported these vulnerabilities to the affected vendors, of which some, including Intel and Huawei, have already released patch updates and issued a security advisory for Windows 10 and 8.1. Is remains to be seen if older systems will be offered patches, or if this is going to be the excuse for forced obsolesence of Windows 7 and earlier systems.
All the vulnerable drivers, as listed below, uncovered by the researchers, have been certified by Microsoft who missed the flaw.
American Megatrends International (AMI)
ASUSTeK Computer
ATI Technologies (AMD)
Micro-Star International (MSI)
Phoenix Technologies
Realtek Semiconductor
