Corporate cultural issues hold back secure software development - As the digital economy expands and software becomes more critical, security worries grow. In a new survey, 74 percent of respondents agree that security threats due to software and code issues are a growing concern. The study of over 1,200 IT leaders, conducted by analysts Freeform Dynamics for software company CA Technologies, finds 58 percent of respondents cite existing culture and lack of skills as hurdles to being able to embed security within processes. In addition, only 24 percent strongly agree that their organization's culture and practices support collaboration across development, operations and security. On top of cultural limitations, less… [Continue Reading]...

Apricorn Aegis Secure Key 3z: A super-secure USB flash drive [Review] - If you have important data that you need to have easy access to at all times, carrying it around on a USB flash drive makes sense. Unfortunately, these tiny storage devices are easily lost, and software encryption methods may not be 100 percent reliable. If you want to guarantee that your personal data doesn?t fall into the wrong hands in the event of the loss -- or theft -- of your drive, the best solution is a hardware encrypted memory stick like the new USB 3.1 Aegis Secure Key 3z from Apricorn. This is a thumbdrive with a built in… [Continue Reading]...

Amazon Go, the AI-powered, checkout-free store, is now open in Seattle - Today sees the opening of the first Amazon Go store.

Three game-changers in the Automotive industry in 2018 - New data-driven services, strong light-weight materials and a rapidly built out infrastructure for EVs (Electric Vehicles) are trends impacting the automotive industry throughout 2018. Stefan Issing, the Global Industry Director for Automotive at IFS, presents his industry predictions for the year ahead. 1) Service revenue in Automotive will increase by 30 percent during 2018 When German car manufacturers Opel first launched in 1863 they made sewing machines, switching to cars in 1899. Peugeot milled corn and then steel for eighty years before turning their hand to cars in 1891. So although it?s sometimes seen as conservative, the auto industry has… [Continue Reading]...

Prediction #3 -- 2018 foreign profit repatriation is a $591.8 BILLION taxpayer ripoff - When I started this series of 2018 predictions I said the recently passed U.S. tax law was going to have a profound impact on upcoming events. Having had a chance to look closer at the issue I am even more convinced that this seismic financial event is, as I wrote above, a $591.8 billion taxpayer ripoff. This is not to say there aren?t some possible public benefits from the repatriation, but it?s fairly clear that the public loses more than it will ever gain. In case you don?t follow these things, multinational U.S. companies have, since 2005, squirreled away about… [Continue Reading]...

KaOS 2018.01 KDE-focused Linux distro now available with Spectre and Meltdown fixes - It can be difficult to find a quality Linux distribution that meets your needs. This is partly because there are just too many operating systems from which to choose. My suggestion is to first find a desktop environment that you prefer, and then narrow down your distro search to one that focuses on that DE. For instance, if you like KDE, both Kubuntu and Netrunner are solid choices. With all of that said, there is another KDE-focused Linux distro that I highly recommend. Called "KaOS," it is a rolling release, meaning you can always be confident that your computer is… [Continue Reading]...

Amazon hikes monthly Prime fee by 18 percent - Amazon has just given people another reason to pay for their Prime subscriptions on an annual rather than a monthly basis. The company has increased the cost of a monthly subscription by $2 per month. This is the first rise in Amazon Prime subscription pricing for a few years now, and the fact that the annual fee remains unchanged is a clear indication that Amazon is eager to lock customers into year-long packages.

Facebook to fight 'sensationalism, misinformation and polarization' with news trustworthiness surveys for users - Facebook has said time and time again that it will do more to fight the problem of fake news on the social network, and the company's latest idea is to simply ask users which news sources they know and trust. In a post on his own Facebook page, Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook will start to "ask people whether they're familiar with a news source and, if so, whether they trust that source." Seemingly blind to the idea that this could be open to abuse and manipulation, he says that this will shift the balance of the news that is… [Continue Reading]...

Twitter admits that 670,000 people interacted with Russian propaganda bots during US election - Twitter has revealed that a total of 677,775 Americans followed accounts or liked tweets associated with Russian propaganda groups during the 2016 US election. The company does not reveal how many people saw the tweets posted by these accounts. That Russia tried to use Twitter -- and other social networks -- to influence the outcome of the US election is hardly news, but there has been an ongoing investigation trying to determine the scale of the operation. In its latest announcement, Twitter also says that it closed 50,258 accounts with links to Russia. See also: Facebook is developing a tool… [Continue Reading]...

Italy launches investigation into Samsung and Apple for slowing down phones - Just a couple of weeks ago a French watchdog announced that it was investigating Apple about the "planned obsolescence" of iPhones. Now Italy is also looking into both Apple and Samsung after complaints that the companies are purposefully slowing down older phone models. Apple has already admitted and defended the fact that it slows down older iPhones, saying that it is done to ensure the best performance from aging batteries -- later saying that an upcoming update will make the slowdown optional. In Italy, both Apple and Samsung stand accused of reducing handset performance to "induce consumers to buy new… [Continue Reading]...

Net Neutrality is over: Here are three things to know and do - On December 14, 2017 the United States Federal Communications voted to end Net Neutrality. In other words, they are reversing a 2015 FCC vote to classify Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as "common carriers" rather than "information providers" according to Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 and Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. As common carriers, ISPs must provide equal access to all consumers and all businesses on all devices. They cannot throttle traffic, or block certain web sites, or charge more for consumers to access specific URLs such as www.amazon.com, www.netflix.com, or www.washingtonpost.com. Net Neutrality makes… [Continue Reading]...

New API sheds light on the dark web - Gaining threat intelligence from the dark web can be a difficult task for security providers due to its unstructured nature. Similarly, when data breaches occur, companies often face the problem of knowing exactly which data has been exposed on underground marketplaces. Data feed service Webhose is launching a new feed of dark web data, Dark Web API, that shines light into the dark web. It enables cyber security companies, public institutions and researchers to identify relevant information, within content extracted from .onion domains, including market places, hidden forums and message boards.

Wine 3.0 is here to run Windows software on your Linux box - When people make the switch from Windows to Linux, they often experiment with Wine. If you aren?t familiar, it is a compatibility layer that can sometimes get Windows software to run on Linux and BSD. I say "sometimes" because it isn?t a flawless experience. In fact, it can be quite frustrating to use. I suggest using native Linux software as an alternative, but understandably, that isn?t always possible. If you depend on Wine, or want to start trying it out, I am happy to say that version 3.0 is finally available. It is quite the significant update too, as it… [Continue Reading]...

Hackers gear up to target Winter Olympics - With the 24th Winter Olympics due to start in Pyeongchang, South Korea in a few weeks, athletes are not the only ones preparing for the event. A report from security analytics platform Cybereason shows that hackers and cyber criminals are gearing up too, the scale and cost of the event making it a prime target. The greatest cyber risks are likely to come from the third-party ecosystem and the access to networks that TV stations, journalists and sub-contractors require to run and cover the games. The report also looks at potential threat actors including nation states, non-state actors and organized… [Continue Reading]...

Microsoft releases Windows 10 Preview Build 17074.1002 with AMD boot fix related to Spectre and Meltdown - A week ago, Microsoft released a new Preview Build of Windows 10 -- 17074. It was chock-full of new features and fixes, making it a wise upgrade for anyone in the Insiders program. Sadly, it was discovered that Build 17074 had a huge bug -- it made some AMD systems unbootable. Yikes! Apparently, this was related to fixes for Spectre and Meltdown. True, this is pre-release software, so bugs should be expected, but losing the ability to boot can really ruin a user's day. Today, that bug is fixed, as Microsoft pushes out Build 17074.1002. It also fixes an issue where some computers… [Continue Reading]...

Huawei will preload Android Messages on its Android smartphones - After you've used a messaging app, it's hard to go back to SMS. You can't share files, get read receipts, group chats or share emoji. It's archaic, but the good news is that there is an alternative. It's called Rich Communication Services and it offers many of the features that we have come to love on messaging apps. Google is one of the biggest adopters, offering support for RCS in its Android Messages app. And, today, it announces that Huawei, one of the largest Android vendors, will integrate it in its Android smartphones.
