What does Blacklisting mean?Blacklisting of the website takes place when a website has been removed from their index by the search engine.

Generally, there are individuals who are responsible for maintaining websites, called Webmasters and they pay attention to all such banned websites.

It is necessary to pay attention because a website loses about 95 percent of its traffic if blacklisted.

It also has a huge impact on profit generation and sales of the enterprises.

Are you worried about your website too?

You can check your domain’s blacklisting status with ESDS’ VTMScan.

Web server and application delivery company NGINX has unveiled a suite of products that will allow teams to build or modernise applications using DevOps tools and includes best practices for cloud, containers, and microservices.

NGINX believes that the new platform will provide a number of benefits including, "added agility, stability, improved governance, and visibility".

NGINX Controller: a centralized management and monitoring platform for NGINX Plus, this will orchestrate the delivery of applications across multiple environments.

The idea is that this will help with continuous deployment and will update applications using tested policies.

NGINX said that using this, organisations can see how traffic is being routed through all NGINX Plus instances and do so through "a single pane of glass".

NGINX Unit: The company reckons that this is the, "dynamic server for modern applications" and will take account of the increasing adoption of microservices that mean that organizations are deploying new features and functionality much more frequently.

The headlines and details concerning the Trump administration’s blacklisting of Huawei have come in fast and furious over the last few days.

The Trump administration adds Huawei to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Entity List via executive order, thereby blacklisting the company as far as U.S. corporations are concerned.

For users of our services, Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices.

Huawei will only be able to use the public version of Android and will not be able to get access to proprietary apps and services from Google.”

Intel and Qualcomm join Google: Neither company issued a statement, but sources cited by Bloomberg said the companies would comply with the order.

Huawei issues first public response: “Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world.

Huawei's chief legal officer said Wednesday that the US government's blacklisting of the company could cost Americans jobs.

Song Liuping said 1,200 US companies will be directly harmed, with "tens of thousands" of American jobs put at risk as a result.

This is the latest barb in the escalating tensions between the Chinese tech giant and the Trump administration.

Huawei is fighting back against US President Donald Trump's administration by saying that blacklisting the company will hit US industry hard.

Huawei has locked horns with the US government after the Department of Commerce placed the company on an "entity list," preventing American firms from doing business with Huawei without first seeking government permission.

Artificial intelligence (AI) startup Megvii is considering whether to delay its Hong Kong listing despite plans to go public before year-end, Bloomberg reported.

Why it matters: Megvii was among several of China’s biggest AI firms added to the US government’s so-called Entity List in October, effectively blocking them from sourcing American-made components.

The move has raised questions about the future of these companies, as some source components from US manufacturers, including Nvidia.

Following Megvii’s blacklisting, Goldman Sacks, one of the IPO underwriters, said it was reevaluating its involvement in the company going public.

Taiwan’s government plans to investigate the firm following the ban, after Megvii was awarded a contract to install a security system for the Taichung Power Plant.

Google apparently warned the Trump administration that its Huawei ban could endanger US national security.

The search giant's senior executives are pushing for an exemption from the Huawei blacklisting, which basically banned US companies from doing business with the Chinese company, the Financial Times reported Thursday.

Neither Google nor Huawei immediately responded to requests for comment.

The US has agreed not to put Xiaomi on a blacklist blocking investment in the Chinese tech company, undoing a move made in the last week of the Trump administration. Xiaomi sued the US government over the designation, but just filed a joint status report with the Department of Defense saying the two parties “have agreed upon a path forward that would resolve this litigation without the need for contested briefing.”

The DoD had decided to designate Xiaomi as a “Chinese Communist Military Company,” which could have forced any American investors to divest their holdings in Xiaomi by November this year. After Xiaomi sued the government in response, a district judge issued a preliminary injunction to block the blacklisting, calling it...

In case the first recall, second recall, house fire, airline ban, internet-winning Halloween costume or physical injuries weren t enough to deter you from using your Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is going to take the option out of your hands.

New Zealand phone companies are working with Samsung to start blacklisting any Note 7 devices left in the wild, which should be the final blow for the hottest smartphone in recent history.

DON T MISS: Forget the iPhone 8, this all-screen iPhone SE is all the smartphone you need

Stuff reports that the New Zealand Telecommunications Forum estimates that there s a few hundred devices left active in the country, but not for long.

Starting on November 18th, Note 7 devices won t work on any of New Zealand s cell networks.

This isn t being achieved by a remote software update, but rather by blacklisting the IMEI number of every Note 7 handset.

The miscreants behind the Nymaim malware dropper have updated their code to include better obfuscation and blacklisting against security software.

Analytics outfit Verint, which discovered the latest version and offers its analysis here, says the new code base targets phishing rather than the drive-by-download approach favoured by the original version of the malware.

Nymaim has been around since 2013, but has gone through few iterations to try and stay ahead of threat researchers.

Verint asserts that attacks are rising, up 63 per cent compared to last year.

They write that the variant has new delivery mechanisms, obfuscation methods, PowerShell usage and even an interesting form of anti-security solution/analysis blacklisting .

The blacklist check happens pretty soon after the payload launches: it uses a Maxmind query to learn how the victim machine is connected to the Internet, and checks the query results for names of common security solutions Fortinet, Cisco, Trend Micro and the like .

Artificial intelligence startup Megvii will continue to seek a Hong Kong listing despite being blacklisted by the US earlier this month and is aiming for an early November listing hearing, Bloomberg reported.

Why it matters: Megvii filed for a Hong Kong initial public offering (IPO) in August following reported delays due to ongoing US-China trade tensions.

The filing came after months of political unrest in the city, with companies including e-commerce giant Alibaba opting to wait in order to gauge investor sentiment following city-wide protests.

After Megvii’s blacklisting, Goldman Sacks, one of the IPO’s underwriters, said it was reevaluating its involvement in the company going public.

The government of Taiwan is opening an investigation of the firm, which was awarded in September a contract to install a security system for the Taichung Power Plant, after the blacklisting.

Details: Megvii is currently seeking a listing hearing in November, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Though it was obvious that Huawei’s blacklisting in the US would have a negative impact on it, thus far, the company hasn’t given us a clear idea of just how much of a setback it is.

Today that all changed, with Huawei cutting revenue projections based on the hit it expects from the ban.

In doing so, Huawei indicated that it’s taking a pretty big blow by finding itself at the center of this trade war between the US and China.

Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei expects revenue for 2019 to drop by $30 billion.

Ever since news of Huawei’s blacklisting came down the line, the company has been talking about some fallback measures it supposedly has in place – specifically, Huawei claims that it’ll have its own mobile OS ready to go in a matter of months if it can’t successfully argue its case and get the ban reversed.

With the impact of the US ban now quantified to some extent, the need for those in-house fallbacks becomes even more clear.

On Monday, The Register reported on the story of Jim Giercyk, an amateur radio enthusiast who had his copy of the popular Ham Radio Deluxe HRD software revoked after posting a negative review.

And just to be clear: by blackballing keys, installed copies of the software stop working.

Giercyk, a professional musician in South Carolina, US, says that after his dealings with HRD Software which has since reinstated his software key and the statement made by the developer's co-owner Dr Michael Carper, he takes issue with claims made by the company.

Giercyk, aka N2SUB, told us on Tuesday:

The issue is not the refusal of service, the issue is that HRD disabled my software, and then offered to enable it in exchange for the removal of an online review of their product.

I hate bullies, and that s what I was dealing with at HRD, so I decided to stand my ground.
