Sunrise, the popular calendar app acquired by Microsoft in 2015, is officially no more.

The app’s calendars have stopped updating and users will no longer be able to access their accounts through the app or website as of Sept. 14, the company revealed. In what may be an effort to help soften that blow, Microsoft also delivered a major update to the calendar features in its Outlook app Tuesday.

For one, Outlook’s calendar, which Microsoft had earlier confirmed would replace Sunrise, now has a design that looks much more like the old Sunrise app than previous versions. The in-app calendar uses colored icons that will look familiar to Sunrise users. The update also added a few new ones with event-specific graphics. Read more…

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
