Top FBI, CIA, and NSA officials all agree: Don’t use Huawei Phones

Feb 21, 2018 | Blog

When the heads of all three U.S. intelligence agencies reach the same conclusion: “Don’t Buy Huawei phones”, we should probably listen. CBS News is reporting that FBI Director Chrostopher Wray, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and NSA Director Dan Coats, each gave testimony on Capitol Hill this week to address the cyber security threats facing the nation and all admitted that they would never willingly use a Huawei handset. The intelligence community has been warning about the risk of Huawei for years, but the timing of the message here is clear: buy the new Huawei, Mate 10 Pro at your own risk.

Google Chrome says “Goodbye Ads”

Feb 13, 2018 | Blog

Earlier this year Google announced that it will be integrating an ad blocker into Chrome in order to allow users better experience and cut down spammy or intrusive advertisements. That being said, we now have an official date for this update which will be on February 15th, 2018. However, Google Chrome won’t be removing all ads, just ones that are considered aggressive, such as full page ads, ads with auto-playing sound and video as well as flashing ads. This way Google will try to clean up the web with Chrome, as Chrome is already a Browser leader by the number of users. Websites that contain these unwanted ads will be notified by Google and of a potential blocking through its Ad Experience Report tool. Sites that ignore or fail to meet those standards for 30 days will have all their ads blocked by Google, even the ones “owned or served by Google”, after which they will be able to submit for manual review to have ads re-enabled once the bad ones are removed.

Microsoft claims that Google Chrome is worse than Microsoft Edge

Feb 09, 2018 | Blog

A recent report backs up the company's claims about its browser offering better protection from phishing attacks. Microsoft is clamming that Microsoft’s Internet browser Edge is safer to use and better for battery life than Google Chrome. Chrome is far more popular than Edge, and Microsoft has long struggled to close the gap between these two browsers. Chrome had a 55.08 per cent share of the global market over the past 12 months, compared to less than three per cent for Edge, which was less popular than Safari, UC Browser, Firefox, Opera, and even Internet Explorer. Microsoft, however, argues that Edge outperforms Chrome in several key areas. It has released an ad that reveals the results of a battery test – conducted by Microsoft – in which 720p video was streamed on a loop on three identical laptops, using Edge, Chrome and Firefox.

Nintendo is making a Mario Movie

Feb 02, 2018 | Blog

The company has revealed that it will be making a Mario movie. The studio it’s partnering with is Illumination Films, the company behind the “Despicable Me” series and its wildly successful “Minions” spin-off. The Japanese gaming company is trying to use its popular titles to make more money outside of traditional video games. And as the company’s most well-known character, Mario is its go-to guy for building new businesses. However, on Nintendo’s Twitter official page, it was specifically said its “a movie starring Mario”, not “a Mario movie” so it’s possible that this will be something totally disconnected from the proper Mario canon- which is absolutely the sort of weirdly protective thing Nintendo would do. But Mario’s previous Hollywood venture didn’t go so well.

Over 500,000 Users Impacted by Malicious Chrome Extensions

Jan 16, 2018 | Blog

Most of the browsers today offer users ability to install extensions, a web based applications that can enhance the user’s overall experience, but they can also pose a threat with the ability to inject and execute a malicious code. Recently, ICEBRG detected a suspicious spike in outbound network traffic from a custom workstation which prompted an investigation that led to the discovery of four malicious Chrome extensions which managed to infect over half a million users worldwide, including employees of major organizations. Security researchers from US cyber-security firm ICEBRG have spotted four Chrome extensions featuring malicious code that were available through the official Chrome Web Store. The extensions were likely used to conduct click fraud and/or search engine optimization (SEO) manipulation, but they could have also been used by threat actors to gain access to corporate networks and user information, the security company warns.

Microsoft on its way to help blind people see with their AIs

Jan 09, 2018 | Blog

Microsoft released an app that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) in order to help blind people know what is going on in the world around them. “Seeing AI” as it’s called has several different channels that users can switch between. Based on those channels the app will provide a feedback of what is going on in front of the users. This app can read out loud texts written on the envelope that is in front of the user for example, it can provide audio guidance for scanning printing pages, scan grocery items via their barcode and even offer instructions on how to use them. Probably one of the most impressive thing about “Seeing AI” is that this app can recognize user friends, describe them and even indicate their emotional state. The latest update regarding this app is that now it can recognize different currencies such as British Pounds, US Dollars, Canadian Dollars and Euros.

‘Steve Jobs’ jeans, anyone?

Dec 29, 2017 | Blog

An Italian company started by the brothers Vincenzo and Giacomo Barbato, after years of legal battles has won the right to use the tech icon’s name ‘Steve Jobs’ for their company including, some might say, a slightly demolished version of Apple-style logo. The brothers decided to use Steve Job’s name in 2012 when they were starting a clothing company and noticed that Apple had never trademarked his name. “We did our market research and we noticed that Apple, one of the best known companies in the world, never thought about registering its founder's brand, so we decided to do it", as the brothers said. The logo that they designed is the letter “J” topped by an Apple leaf with a semi-circular cut on the side that looks a lot like the bite out of the Apple’s apple.

US blames North Korea for cyber-attack

Dec 19, 2017 | Blog

White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert, said that United States believes North Korea was behind the “WannaCry” cyber-attack earlier this year. This is the first time that the accusation of another country for the cyber-attack was made officially. The US has evidence to support this, while UK and Microsoft came to similar conclusions in their analyses of the attack. The “WannaCry” attack was one of the most devastating acts of cyber-terrorism in recent times. In May, Windows computers that were hit by this cyber-attack had their contents locked, with users asked to pay a ransom in order to have their data restored. This fast-spreading malware locked down several computers in the UK’s NHS hospitals and displayed a message prompting users to pay $300 in Bitcoin to decrypt the files and restore them to working order.

After testing the software for the past couple of months, the company announced today it will now be rolled out more broadly.

Beware of Fake Facebook profiles

Nov 21, 2017 | Blog

Many of us at least once, received friend request from a fairly suspicious account, in other words fake. Most of those fake accounts are using stolen photos of young women or men and teenagers, tagging other fake accounts in their post and pictures.

Twitter will expand tweets to 280 characters!

Nov 17, 2017 | Blog

Twitter has announced that it’s planning to increase the number of characters in tweets from 140 to 280 for the majority of users. However, the new limit will not apply to tweets written in Japanese, Chinese and Korean, because they can carry more information in a single character than other languages. Asian languages fit more thoughts into fewer characters, as the average length of a tweet in Japanese is 15 characters. The company’s decision came after a 280 character trial run that began in September. The main reason for this was that the people, spent a lot of time editing and even sometimes abandoning Tweets before sending. With the expanded character count this problem was massively reduced, and it allowed users to send their Tweets faster than before. This will also attract new users and increase growth.

Internet Explorer Bugs Leaks Your Browsing Secrets

Oct 03, 2017 | Blog

The latest version of Internet Explorer carries a bug that reveals to the malicious websites what the user is typing in the address bar, search terms or any other text typed into the URL area. This Internet Explorer’s flaw is allowing the website which user is currently visiting to view the text typed in the address bar. As soon as the user hits Enter key, the website will stop and redirect to a simple page explaining that it has “read your mind” and displays your browser’s next destination. This means that the bug can expose sensitive information, not only Web address but also search queries and other user’s browsing habits, since Internet Explorer can bring up search results from Bing or other search services when a user types keywords in the address bar.

The influence of women in technology is something that is needed in regards to the information security. Currently, IT security is highly regarded as a male-dominated career choice.
