Microsoft Windows 10 users must update their computers or be in danger of having private messages read, NSA says
'The consequences of not patching the vulnerability are severe and widespread,' says National Security Agency, which found the bug

Windows 10 users have been urged to update their PCs or risk having private messages read.

The huge vulnerability has been patched in an update but any computer that has not received the latest version of the operating system is at risk.

Revealed: UK concealed failure to alert EU over 75,000 criminal convictions
Calls in UK and Europe for inquiries into scandal in which details of crimes by foreigners not passed on

The UK has failed to pass on the details of 75,000 convictions of foreign criminals to their home EU countries and concealed the scandal for fear of damaging Britain’s reputation in Europe’s capitals, the Guardian can reveal.

European trust in the UK on security issues sank to a new low on Tuesday night after details emerged of the apparent cover-up, which prompted calls for an investigation in the UK and a warning from one senior MEP that a Brussels inquiry was inevitable.

The police national computer error, revealed in the minutes of a meeting at the criminal records office, went undetected for five years, during which one in three alerts on offenders – potentially including murderers and rapists – were not sent to EU member states.

Authorities in EU countries were not informed of the crimes committed, the sentences given to their nationals by UK courts or the risk the convicted criminals posed to the public.

Because the details were not passed on, dangerous offenders could have travelled back to their home countries without the normal notification to local authorities of their presence.

Such is the scale of the scandal that the Home Office initially chose to conceal the embarrassing failure from EU partners.

Greece announces new Migration and Asylum Ministry

A new Ministry of Migration and Asylum was announced by the government on Wednesday as part of its efforts to accelerate the implementation of policy.

The decision was made amid a constant increase in migrant flows, which were compounded by the fact that the asylum application system could not keep up.
