Windows 10 will start blocking drivers if it can’t verify software publisher

With yesterday’s Patch Tuesday security update, Microsoft has flagged a change in the way Windows verifies driver software that could spur a rise in driver errors for Windows 10 users. 

Microsoft details the two driver-related error messages users of all supported versions of Windows 10 and Windows Server might see after installing the October Patch Tuesday security update. 

The errors will happen if Windows can’t verify the publisher of the driver software or if the driver lacks a signature.

“When installing a third-party driver, you might receive the error, “Windows can’t verify the publisher of this driver software”. You might also see the error, “No signature was present in the subject” when attempting to view the signature properties using Windows Explorer,” Microsoft explains under known issues with this update for Windows 10 version 2004. 

According to Microsoft, the error occurs when an

New measurements of the solar spectrum verify Einstein’s theory of General Relativity

New measurements of the solar spectrum verify Einstein's theory of General Relativity

An international team of researchers led by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) has measured, with unprecedented accuracy, the gravitational redshift of the Sun, a change in frequency of the lines in the solar spectrum which is produced when the light escapes from the gravitational field of the Sun on its way to Earth. This work, which verifies one of the predictions of Einstein’s General Relativity, is to be published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.


The General Theory of Relativity, published by Albert Einstein between 1911 and 1916, introduced a new concept

XECAN Announces Its “Touchless” Facial Recognition Technology Can Identify and Verify Patients with or Without Masks on

Patients can be checked in and verified against the EMR system using facial recognition even if the patients have their masks on.

XECAN Announces Its

Boston, MA, October 07, 2020 –(PR.com)– Touchless patient check-in, verification in the treatment room, and workflow may seem futuristic, but XECAN, a company based in Boston, MA has been providing touchless clinic technology for over 10 years. Now, this technology can help immunocompromised cancer patients feel more at ease during treatment in the era of COVID-19 by reducing/eliminating their need to physically interact with many facets of their treatment. This reduction/elimination of physical interaction with objects and surfaces, which may harbor virus particles, helps these patients avoid infection and improve their treatment experience. Because XECAN offers various means of touchless verification, patients can be verified with or without masks.

Denise Lane, Relationship Manager at XECAN states, “When we started this company, our mission was clinic staff safety, patient

ATO wants to verify citizens are alive and physically present for myGovID registrations

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is looking to introduce a “liveness” feature to myGovID, the Australian’s government’s digital identity credential.

The agency, which handles myGovID, has gone to market seeking a supplier to deliver a software solution that will allow people who are registering to prove they are a live person and physically present, as well as allow them to take a selfie to verify their identity against a stored identity document, such as their passport or driver’s licence.

The ATO quietly released the app last year to enable citizens to have their identity verified once so they could access government services online using their verified identity, rather than having to continually be verified by each Commonwealth entity.

The ATO emphasised that the successful contractor would need to adhere to strict security guidelines. These include delivering a security management and governance functionality in accordance with the Australian Cyber Security Centre
