God of War or Red Dead II? Drafting The Best Games Of 2018

Click to watch embedded media While the internet may be more familiar with fantasy sports such as football or baseball, that doesn't mean the gamers of the world can't have a little fun too. From God of War to Red Dead Redemption II and everything in between, join Game Informer as we pick the best games of 2018 and form the ultimate fantasy teams. But how does the process work? The panel of Ben Reeves, John Carson, Kim Wallace, Alex Stadnik, and Alex Van Aken have assembled to select five games apiece from 2018 to create the most robust roster possible. After randomizing the draft order, each person will have time to decide. At the end of the round, the order reverses, and the fun continues from the fifth person back to the first. Sounds pretty standard, right? You can fill your list with as many great games as possible and create the video game equivalent of the 1990s Chicago Bulls. That's where you're wrong. If you've played fantasy sports before, you're well aware that picking players in the late rounds can get rough. In that spirit, each panel member in today's video must select one title off Metacritic's list of the worst games of 2018. In a year of such high highs, it's incredible how low the lows can get. But why are we drafting games like this? Just for fun? Why no, for the community validation, of course! That's right, folks. You get to vote on who has the strongest list. Be sure to head over to our Discord to select the editor with the strongest list, and we'll read the results on this week's episode of The GI Show! Thank you so much for your participation and please let us know what you thought of the segment in the comments below!

    Microsoft email server flaws exploited to hack at the very least 30,000 US organizations

    The emergency security patch Microsoft rolled out a couple of days ago to repair four zero-day flaws in trade Server didn’t deter the hacking group that has been exploiting them. Actually, in accordance with Krebs on Security and Wired , the the Chinese state-sponsored group dubbed Hafnium ramped and automated its campaign following the patch premiered up. In america, the combined group infiltrated at the very least 30,000 organizations using Exchange to process email, including police departments, hospitals, local governments, banks, credit unions, telecommunications and non-profits providers. Worldwide, the amount of victims is in the thousands reportedly.

    “Just about everybody who’s running self-hosted Outlook Web Access and wasn’t patched by a couple of days ago got hit with a zero-day attack,” a source told Krebs . A former national security official Wired talked to said a large number of servers are receiving compromised each hour all over the world. When Microsoft announced its emergency patch, it credited security firm Volexity for notifying it about Hafnium’s activities. Volexity president Steven Adair now said that even organizations that patched their servers on your day Microsoft’s security update premiered could have still been compromised. 

    Further, the patch is only going to fix the Exchange Server vulnerabilities – those already compromised will still need to take away the backdoor the group planted within their systems. Hafnium is exploiting the flaws to plant “web shells” within their victims’ servers, providing them with administrative access they can use to steal information. In accordance with Krebs , Adair along with other security experts come to mind about the chance for the intruders installing additional backdoors because the victims work to eliminate the people already set up. 

    Microsoft clarified right away these exploits have nothing in connection with SolarWinds. Having said that, Hafnium’s activities’ may dwarf the SolarWinds attacks with regards to the amount of victims. Authorities believe around 18,000 entities were suffering from the SolarWinds’ breach, since that has been the amount of customers that downloaded the software’s malicious update. As Wired notes, though, Hafnium’s activities concentrate on small and medium organizations, where in fact the SolarWinds hackers infiltrated tech giants and large US government agencies. 

    When asked concerning the situation, Microsoft told Krebs that it is working closely with the united states Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, and also other government security and agencies companies, to supply its customers “additional mitigation and investigation guidance.”
