12/16/2013, If you’re a Safari user, you might want to consider changing your browser as it would appear that Safari actually keeps your IDs and passwords as a text file, meaning that anyone with the know-how will be able to access them relatively easily. This is according to the folks at Kaspersky Labs who discovered that this problem could stem from Safari’s retention of browser history as applied in the “Reopen […]
07/03/2013, A bug in Skype's Android app allows an attacker to gain access to a device in a rather simple way.
05/27/2013, It goes without saying that software will always come with its fair share of bugs and quirks, although the way those bugs affect a piece of written software varies – some are more harmful than the rest, while others are pretty much harmless in nature even when exploited. When it comes to the Windows Phone mobile operating system, however, developer Kevin Gosse has stumbled upon something that is pretty interesting […]
03/26/2013, You know what they say about Murphy’s Law – anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, or something to that effect. Well, when it comes to a social network like Facebook, we would have more or less expected it to function the way it should, that is, being bug-free and all after all this while of fine tuning. Apparently not, as Murphy’s Law decides to drop by the world’s […]
03/19/2013, EA hasn’t been having the greatest past couple of weeks as the recent SimCity fiasco has lead to gamers everywhere realizing just how much they despise the publisher and just yesterday, EA CEO John Riccitiello resigned from the company for reasons yet to be made public. Now, it looks like there may be a huge security flaw in its Origin platform. At a Black Hat security conference in Amsterdam last week, researchers […]
02/26/2013, It was not too long ago (earlier in February, in fact), where it was discovered that the iPhone actually contained a major security vulnerability, and this potential loophole enabled someone to gain unauthorized user access to the smartphone’s phone app, contacts, voicemail as well as photos. This particular vulnerability was shared in detail over in a YouTube video for the masses, showing the world just how one was able to […]
01/24/2013, All is not well in the world of Sony Xperia V, as there has been a fair number of Sony Xperia V owners who complained that they do experience a ‘Sleep of Death’ bug on their respective LT25i smartphones. ‘Sleep of Death’ points to an issue where the smartphone refuses to wake up from a standby state, meaning the only way for the smartphone to resume working normally would be […]
11/15/2012, Bugs in software are usually annoying and they range from being small annoyances to possibly rendering the software unusable entirely, but we guess once in a while a bug does pop up that we can’t help but smile at. It seems there are several reports on the internet about an OS X bug that will basically transform your Launchpad into an abstract looking piece of art. Apparently the way the […]
12/16/2011, It seems that there is a bug in the iPhone that allows stolen handsets to be on the receiving end of iMessages even after running the remote wipe function. Reports of this happening are scattered here and there, although it does not seem to be widespread. Still, it is a concern, as stolen iPhones receive iMessages that were intended for their original owners, never mind after the number has been […]
11/07/2011, Apple is famous for their closed ecosystem, which is one of the main reasons as to why most of their devices such as the iPhone and iPad have remained more or less free from malware and virus attacks – as all apps are vetted carefully before gaining admission to the App Store. As we all know, nothing is foolproof anymore these days, where serial Mac hacker Charlie Miller managed to […]
11/07/2011, I have an interesting question for you – do you prefer to have a game or software delayed by some time more before it is released without any bugs, or rather, get that “rushed” feeling as said software is rolled out only to have users encounter a bunch of bugs and quirks, before a patch is issued? Bethesda might have plenty of hits on their hands, but those hits came […]
10/13/2011, Apple has given their nod that they are well aware of the Black Screen of Death bug that plagues some models of the MacBook Pro from the 2010 range, although a fix is in the works, it might still take some time before it makes it to the masses. After all, this might very well be hardware related or firmware related, it is rather hard to tell at the moment.
07/25/2011, Privacy issues are ever rampant on the world’s social network: Facebook. Ever since its launch, people have had problems with the service’s privacy settings and over the weekend, a new problem was discovered by the folks at TechCrunch. This time it has something to do with the privacy settings of Facebook videos. Apparently of recent, the privacy controls of Facebook videos haven’t been working as intended. It has been reported […]
07/15/2011, Remember the report about the possible exploitation through PDFs on iOS discovered last week? Well, we were told to hold on tight to our horses while Apple fixed the bug. In the meantime we had to either stay away from PDF files or jailbreak our phones to apply an unofficial fix. It looks like we won’t have to resort to either of those methods anymore. Apple has just released an […]
