06/03/2013, Buying official accessories is usually an expensive affair, although this usually comes with peace of mind knowing you bought a product that will work, or if it doesn’t will allow you to return it. So in the future if you were thinking of purchasing something like an unofficial iOS charger, you might want to think twice because it has been found that your iOS device could technically be hacked through […]
05/17/2013, It was not too long ago when we brought you news that the Syrian Electronic Army hacked into 11 Twitter accounts of The Guardian, and it seems that that was not the last we heard of them. Today, we have reliable information that the Syrian Electronic Army is once again, up to no good, as they have hacked the Financial Times, relegating this news outlet to being the latest victim […]
04/28/2013, Forget about the great train robbery, in this day and age, personal information stored online might prove to be far more valuable to thieving minds and hearts than just cold, hard cash, although I think that cash alone would still be the prime motivator for many a thief. Apparently, online deals service LivingSocial mentioned at the end of last week that their website was compromised, and the personal data of […]
04/24/2013, The iPad 4 sports a pretty impressive resolution at 2048×1536, a display which Apple refers to as Retina which is also higher than Full HD displays at 1920×1080, a display which some notebooks are still missing. Unfortunately monitors with higher than Full HD resolution aren’t exactly cheap, and if you could, wouldn’t you want to turn your iPad’s display into an external monitor? Granted you could probably do that with […]
04/12/2013, We reported on a story where a hacker claimed to have created an Android application that would be able to completely take over an aircraft. Hugo Teso, who is a security consultant and ex-commercial pilot, says his application would be able to make an aircraft “dance to his tune,” but the FAA has dismissed Teso’s claims today. The FAA responded to Teso’s claims by saying the systems that are certified to […]
04/11/2013, I suppose the headline says it all, and it is now down to the little details which should interest many an airline passenger. At least this lends some weight to the argument that one should ensure all electronic items, including smartphones, be turned off throughout the flight, as it just isn’t cool to be on a hijacked flight. Animalnewyork.com has “proof” that smartphones and airplanes are not a desirable mix […]
04/11/2013, Our smartphone apps these days can perform a fair number of tasks, ranging from simple reminders, to more complex such as tracking our location, places we’ve run, how far we’ve run and etc. However an app that could in theory hack aircraft? That just sounds dangerous, but unfortunately it is all too real. Hugo Teso, a security consultant who happens to be a trained commercial pilot, claims to have developed […]
04/10/2013, Most modern companies that rely heavily on information technology to ensure that their business is capable of moving forward at all times would definitely also invest a fair amount of money into security, considering the very real threat of hacking these days. It seems that a group of hackers has gotten their hands on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and other gaming titles, circumventing DRM (Digital Rights Management) in the […]
03/27/2013, Is it possible to experience a “traffic jam” on the anecdotal information superhighway? The simple answer, yes! I noticed it around 9 hours ago, but did not give too much thought into it, thinking that my local ISP’s underwater cable somewhere is experiencing issues as normal, but it seems that there is more than meets the eye. The Internet has apparently slowed down due to what security experts have deemed […]
03/20/2013, South Korea isn’t the only place to see some hacking activity occur today as Microsoft has been the victim of a number of “high profile” accounts get hacked. “A handful of high-profile Xbox LIVE accounts held by current and former Microsoft employees” have in fact been compromised, said Microsoft in a statement to The Verge. The method used to acquire access to these accounts reportedly utilized the employee’s social security numbers […]
03/17/2013, Househusbands, how are you the envy of other men out there who prefer to be in your shoes, where you are able to wake up late, have no kids to send to school yet, and basically keep the house in good working order, cooking dinner as the corporate, high-flying wife returns home from work. Well, role reversals are an interesting topic to explore, and an enterprising gamer decided to hack […]
03/14/2013, While old school billboards that are set up with printed paper can be defaced via acts of vandalism in the physical sense, electronic billboards which require far less manpower to change the face of it as all you need to do is to flash a new image or file, are susceptible to the dark art of hacking. Yes sir, those in the advertising world who decided to make the move […]
