Trend Micro releases free heartbleed scanners

For PC and Android

Trend Micro has launched free Heartbleed scanners for PC and Android devices.

The Tokyo based security firm said the release was in response to growing concern from the public over potential vulnerabilities to the security bug.

The company has offered two different versions of the Heartbleed detector, a Google Chrome browser plug in for PC and an Android mobile app.

Researchers from the company suggested that mobile apps are just as susceptible to the bug as a number of websites.

A blog post from Trend Micro regarding the release said that vulnerabilities to the bug are decreasing every day. It also stated that the threat will never go away entirely and users still need to be wary of potential threats to their personal devices.

The Trend Micro Heartbleed scanner is available from the Chrome Web store and Google Play.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
