  • Apple iOS 13: Is Facebook And Google’s Worst Nightmare Coming True?

    Apple’s iOS 13 comes with some major changes to privacy and security, but it’s also highlighted the data collection practices of firms such as Facebook and Google. One of the first things you might notice when using Apple’s iOS 13 is a notification when opening an app such as Facebook asking for Bluetooth permission. Sure, some apps need access to Bluetooth to work properly. Take, for example the Fitbit smartwatch. But others use Bluetooth to stealthily track people’s location using beacons dotted around in cities and shopping areas. The Verge’s Chris Welch wrote a useful article including more detail on...

    GameSpot ^ | October 18, 2018 at 5:52PM | Steve Watts on
    Ubisoft has issued a new patch for Assassin's Creed Odyssey on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The 1.0.5 patch weighs in at 0.16 GB on PS4 and 0.1 GB on Xbox One, and focuses on squashing bugs--including fixing one issue that only appeared after a previous patch. According to the patch notes, it improves stability and fixes an issue that would make the game crash to the dashboard after the release of update v1.0.3. That update itself was aimed at quality-of-life improvements and fixing game-breaking bugs. The two updates were only days apart, though, so Ubisoft is seeing to these...

    The PCI Security Standards Council, the body governing credit card transactions, has set a deadline for disabling early versions of TLS/SSL to June 30, 2018. What are these technologies? TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) are fundamental to internet transport security. Early versions are still fairly common in older infrastructure. Not updating to the newer versions by the deadline could cause your organization to incur a major fee and potentially halt taking credit card transactions. Why is the TLS update critical?  Let’s take a step back and lay some groundwork. TLS and its predecessor SSL are a set...

    Four people have died after after a huge explosion demolished a grocery store and the flat above it in Leicester. Passers-by dug through the burning wreckage of Western Park Stores with their bare hands as emergency services raced to the scene, with flames shooting 50ft into the air. The cause of the explosion, which occurred at 7:20pm last night while the grocery shop and its neighbouring takeaway restaurant and bar were open, remained a mystery today with gas engineers on site. Eight people were taken to hospital with injuries and this morning it emerged that four have died, while one...

They did not offer details on the substance of the five-day talks. …

    Microsoft Paint, the first image editing software experienced by countless photographers and PC users around the world, is being laid to rest. Microsoft has announced that it’s abandoning the famous program after 32 years. The Guardian spotted a newly published page on the Microsoft website with a list of Windows features that will be removed or deprecated in the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Among the many entries is a simple line that reads, “Microsoft Paint,” with an indication that it will be deprecated. Paint, which first appeared on Windows 1.0 in 1985, has been replaced by Microsoft’s new...

    U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has revised and retracted statements it used to buttress claims of Russian hacking during last year's American presidential election campaign. The shift followed a VOA report that the company misrepresented data published by an influential British think tank. (snip) VOA reported Tuesday that the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which publishes an annual reference estimating the strength of world armed forces, disavowed the CrowdStrike report and said it had never been contacted by the company. Ukraine's Ministry of Defense also has stated that the combat losses and hacking never happened. (snip) After CrowdStrike released its...
