    Microsoft Deprecates Paint After 32 Years With Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 

    Highlights Microsoft Paint was introduced in 1985 with Windows 1.0 It was known for its simple UI for easy editing Support to end with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Microsoft Paint is something we grew up with. Since the 1980s, Paint has stood as one of the earliest tools that taught us how to draw, use different shape presets, make quick copy and paste jobs, or just scribble when we had nothing better to do. 32 years later, Microsoft is ready to take away a part of our childhood when it stops support for Paint with the release of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

    Introduced in 1985 with Windows 1.0, Paint was one of the first graphics editors which became a household feature for Windows users. It was only by Windows 98 that one could start saving Paint files as JPEG. Apart from Paint, Microsoft has also added Outlook Express, Reader App, and Reader List to its list of “features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.” Paint falls under the deprecated column, which means that these apps will not be in active development and will likely be removed in future releases.

    Update: Microsoft on Monday clarified that MS Paint is not going away, but will be made available as an optional download via the Windows Store.

    Killing off Paint suggests that Microsoft wants to push users towards adopting Paint 3D, which was introduced in April with the Windows 10 Creators Update as a more professional editing software. Paint 3D gives users 3D image making tools along with the 2D tools. In fact, Microsoft’s support page also mentions that the 3D Builder app will no longer be installed by default, urging users to use Paint 3D instead.

    Microsoft’s Paint software will be remembered for, among other things, its simple user interface that made it easy to create artistic content. Whether or not this move will push people to accept Paint 3D is something that will have to be seen once the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rolls out.

    Russian sentenced to five years prison for ‘Citadel’ malware 

    Second to go to jail.

    A Russian man who US prosecutors say played a role in developing the Citadel malware used to steal personal financial information from thousands of computers worldwide has been sentenced to five years in prison.

    Mark Vartanyan, known online as “Kolypto,” was sentenced by US district court judge Mark Cohen in Atlanta after pleading guilty in March to computer fraud, federal prosecutors said.

    The sentence includes credit for the two years Vartanyan spent in Norwegian custody before he was extradited to the United States in December. A lawyer for Vartanyan declined to comment.

    Prosecutors said Vartanyan, from 2012 to 2014 while living in the Ukraine and Norway, helped develop, improve, and maintain Citadel, which was designed to steal financial and personal identification information from computer networks.

    Citing industry estimates, prosecutors said Citadel infected about 11 million computers worldwide and caused over US$500 million in losses.

    “Mark Vartanyan utilised his technical expertise to enable Citadel into becoming one of the most pernicious malware toolkits of its time, and for that, he will serve significant time in federal prison,” US attorney John Horn said in a statement.

    Vartanyan was the second person to be sentenced in connection with the investigation of the Citadel malware.

    In 2015, Dimitry Belorossov, a Russian national who prosecutors said distributed and installed Citadel onto computers, was sentenced to 4.5 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to commit computer fraud.

    The big story this year was last month’s surprise acquisition of Pinboard’s long-time nemesis Delicious. This illustrates the importance of always having a backup nemesis, an area where Pinboard leads the industry.

    But it’s also been a rough year for Pinboard users! In November I began traveling extensively in support of Tech Solidarity, an attempt to mobilize tech workers after the US election. All the travel meant I sometimes ignored support emails for weeks at a time.

    In the last couple of months, I’ve taken a bit of a reverse sabbatical to try to stabilize the site, make it easier for me to monitor and run, and catch up with a backlog of very, very, very irate messages.

    I also baked this delicious pie:

    Sextortionist government worker gets nearly 5 years in the slammer 

    A former US Embassy worker who sextorted, phished, broke into email accounts, stole explicit images and cyberstalked hundreds of women around the world from his London office has been sentenced to nearly 5 years in jail.

    Michael C. Ford, of Atlanta, pleaded guilty in December to nine counts of cyberstalking, seven counts of computer hacking to extort, and one count of wire fraud.

    He ran his predatory scams from his official, government-issued computer for more than two years, posing as a member of the fictional Google “Account Deletion Team.”

    He used aliases including “David Anderson” and “John Parsons”, telling victims that their email accounts would be deleted if they didn’t respond.

    Once he’d gained access to their Gmail accounts, he used the details to hijack at least 450 Google, Facebook, Twitter and iCloud profiles belonging to 200 individuals. He ransacked their personal information and photos, then he’d start extorting them.

    His preferred prey was young females, some of whom were students at US colleges and universities, with a particular focus on members of sororities and aspiring models.

    Having stolen photos and personally identifying information (PII) that included their home and work addresses, school and employment information, and names and contact information of family members, Ford went on to demand more sexually explicit material and personal information, emailing victims the photos he’d stolen and threatening to publish them if they didn’t give him what he demanded.

    Specifically, Ford demanded that his victims record and send to him videos of “sexy girls” undressing in changing rooms at pools, gyms and clothing stores.

    He was a busy guy.

    Ars Technica’s Cyrus Farivar posted a sentencing memorandum filed by prosecutors prior to the sentencing hearing on Monday.

    In it, they expressed shock at the scale of Ford’s activities:

    The sheer number of phishing emails that Ford sent is astounding.

    According to the memorandum, on one day alone – 8 April, 2015 – Ford sent phishing emails to about 800 unique email addresses.

    That’s not all. On the same date, he sent 180 followups to targets who hadn’t yet responded to his original email, plus 15 emails to potential targets who’d provided the wrong passwords.

    Jamie Perry, a prosecutor, wrote this in the filing:

    Considering Ford’s daily volume, repeated over the course of several months, the number of Ford’s potential phishing victims is staggering.
