- Microsoft issues 'Fix it' patch for IE9 and IE10 zero-day
exploit - The
exploit was first discovered and published by the FireEye security
firm, which added that it was used by the mystery hackers to compromise
the website of the U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars. Microsoft has now
released a quick "Fix It"
patch that will close the exploit in both IE9 and IE10. Older
versions of the browser are not affected by this problem. Neither is
Internet Explorer 11, which means users of IE9 and IE10 who are running
Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 can upgrade to IE11 and be protected from the
issue. Microsoft will release a permanent security patch for both
browsers in the near future, most likely during March's "Patch Tuesday"
- Adobe Issues Another Emergency Patch - Adobe has released
updates for Adobe Flash Player 184.108.40.206 and earlier versions for
Windows and Macintosh and Adobe Flash Player 220.127.116.116 and earlier
versions for Linux. These updates address vulnerabilities that could
potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
Adobe is aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2014-0502 exists in
the wild, and recommends users update their product installations to
the latest versions.
- New Tinder Security Flaw Exposed Users' Exact Locations for
Months - Internet security researchers in New York say that a
flaw in Tinder, the super-popular hookup app, made it possible to
find users' precise location for between 40 and 165 days, without any
public notice from the company. Tinder-which connects flirty smartphone
users with others nearby-is supposed to show users roughly how close
they are to each other. Distance is rounded to the nearest mile, a
safe-seeming threshold that has helped the app become addictive to both
sexes. In October, however, researchers at Include Security discovered
that Tinder servers were actually giving much more detailed
information-mileage to 15 decimal places-that would allow any hacker
with 'rudimentary' skills to pinpoint a user's location to within 100
feet. Depending on the neighborhood, that's close enough to determine
with alarming accuracy where, say, an ex-girlfriend is hanging out.
- Dear Asus router user: You've been pwned - Hackers
expose eight-month-old Asus weakness by leaving note on victims'
drives! According to Kyle Lovett, the
weakness affects a variety of Asus router models, including the
RT-AC66R, RT-AC66U, RT-N66R, RT-N66U, RT-AC56U, RT-N56R, RT-N56U,
RT-N14U, RT-N16, and RT-N16R. Asus reportedly patched the
vulnerabilities late last week, but as Jerry's experience demonstrates,
it has yet to be installed on some vulnerable routers.
- You Should Update To iOS 7.0.6 - Yesterday, Apple pushed a rather spooky security update for iOS that
suggested that something was horribly wrong with SSL/TLS in iOS but
gave no details.
- Microsoft Office for iPad Tipped to Launch Before
July - If you are one of the millions who own and work with an
iPad and looking forward to the day you can finally get Microsoft
Office up and running on it, looks like that day will be coming much
sooner that expected. The Office app would include Microsoft Word,
Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. The iPad version is likely to tie in
with SkyDrive, which is soon to be renamed OneDrive. Microsoft released
an iPhone version in 2013 that utilised a paid Office 365 subscription
to let users create and edit documents. Pricing for the app is yet to
be revealed, although Microsoft may release it for free and then
require and Office 365 subscription to edit the documents that can save
- Samsung drops a new teaser video for Galaxy S5 - Samsung
is about to drop the official news about the Galaxy S5
smartphone in a few days, but today the company is
teasing the world
with a quick new video to prepare everyone for the announcement,
is expected to be made on Monday.
- Facebook Is Buying WhatsApp for $16B - Facebook
has announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire
WhatsApp, a rapidly growing cross-platform mobile messaging company,
for a total of approximately $16 billion, including $4 billion in cash
and approximately $12 billion worth of Facebook shares. The agreement
also provides for an additional $3 billion in restricted stock units to
be granted to WhatsApp's founders and employees that will vest over
four years subsequent to closing.
- WhatsApp passed on Google's $10B offer before Facebook deal - Something
like that shouldn't be worth 19 billion. Especially not when you
consider how fast the tech market is changing. Does Facebook plan to
buy the 'next best thing' for 19 billion every four years.
Anyway, the world is going in the wrong direction :-(
- Samsung plans to implement the fingerprint sensor in the
Galaxy S5 - According to a report published by SamMobile
based on information from their sources, Samsung will be shipping the
Galaxy S5 with a fingerprint sensor embedded in the device's home
button similar to the one on Apple's iPhone 5s. In order to use the
sensor, a user will have to swipe from the top of the home button to
the bottom. The report mentions that the sensor would not function with
moist or wet fingers and the user will be presented an error. The
interesting aspect of Samsung's implementation is that during the
swipe, the S5 will show the fingerprint being scanned on the display in
real-time. It is also revealed that the fingerprint sensor will be used
for providing security to the apps of the user's choice in addition to
the whole device as Samsung has enabled the functionality throughout
the operating system on the Galaxy S5. Up to eight fingerprints can be
stored on the Galaxy S5 with one mandatory for unlocking the
smartphone. The Galaxy S5 will feature a Personal Folder and Private
Mode accessible by entering a PIN, unlock pattern or stored
- LG Debuts L Series III Smartphones - LG has announced

Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi.
- Pirate Sites Generate $227M In Ad Revenue a Year - A
new report published by the Digital Citizens Alliance estimates
that the top "pirate sites" generate $227 million in annual ad revenue.
The major torrent sites have the highest profit margins and earn over
$6 million each per year, partly funded by major brands such as Amazon,
McDonalds and Xfinity. It's no secret that running a torrent portal,
linking site, or cyberlocker can be highly profitable. Thus far,
however, only a few have attempted to quantify the money that flows
into these businesses.

|"Nvidia Is About To Steal The Cryptocurrency Mining Crown From AMD"
non-issue. Neither are close to ~10e/GHs so who cares. I think that most people that still use graphic cards for mining are very very very very optimistic people mining lightcoin or some other worthless crap thinking it will have the same "over inflated" balloon effect and they will get rich. Though chance...
600 GH/s, 350W, $2,196
Now if that company prefers selling you such hardware instead of hogging it, think about where this is all going...I mean, that card, in theory (bit coin calc) makes ~1600 euros profit monthly...
and yea, bitcoin price is diving nose down.
