  Taiwanese Government Warns of Hidden Backdoor in D-Link Routers
Posted by: mrtrout - 06-18-2024 , 07:25 AM - Forum: Security News - No Replies

https://www.security.nl/posting/846224/T...nk-routers    Taiwanese Government Warns of Hidden Backdoor in D-Link Routers
Monday 17 June 2024, 16:25 by Redactie,
Several of D-Link's routers contain a "hidden backdoor" that allows attackers to log into the devices, Taiwan's Computer Emergency Response Team (TWCERT) has warned.

"Certain models of D-Link Wi-Fi routers include an unlisted factory test backdoor. Unauthenticated attackers on the local network can enable Telnet via a special url and then log in via the admin credentials found in the firmware," the Taiwanese government agency explained. According to D-Link's description, it is a path traversal vulnerability, although it could also be a flaw in the description, as the same security bulletin describes a different path traversal vulnerability.

According to D-Link's explanation, an unauthenticated attacker can gain access to a specific URL, which can be used to enable Telnet. Then, an attacker can log in using the hardcoded credentials found in the router firmware. Telnet, which dates back to 1969, allows users to log in to machines remotely. It does not use encryption, which means that username and password are sent unencrypted. Its use is therefore not recommended and is now disabled on many devices.

According to D-Link, the attack is only possible from the LAN side. The problem seems to be mainly with Wi-Fi networks that multiple people have access to. The impact of the vulnerability (CVE-2024-6045) was rated 8.8 on a scale of 1 to 10. The vulnerability exists in the following models: E15, G403, G415, G416, M15, M18, M32, R03, R04, R12, R15, R18, R32, and AQUILA PRO AI Family model E30, M30, and M60. The available firmware updates can be installed automatically and manually.      Website status:

  Rizen / Habit Tracker, Planner Giveaway (Lifetime)
Posted by: Mike - 06-15-2024 , 01:09 PM - Forum: Personal Giveaways - Replies (4)

Prioritize well-being with mindful choices. 
Nourish the body, explore the mind. 
Define desires, and set boundaries with Rizen

The Rizen App was built on the famous Japanese productivity philosophy Kaizen. The concept of Kaizen improves everyday procedures, making tasks and achieving goals more fulfilling, less tiring, and more productive.

The inclusion of the word ‘Zen’ encourages several interpretations for individuals interested in achieving goals. The idea is to aim for small and consistent growth each day. Your daily efforts and progress would eventually lead to significant results.

The researchers concluded that Kaizen philosophy could develop a ‘harmony between body and mind, focus on what is really important, make your life more balanced and successful.

Small things, done consistently, create change. Rizen Habit Tracker is a science-backed approach to make new habits last for good. Master the Kaizen principles for living a better, smarter, and more fulfilling life.

Rizen App teaches you to navigate through life with an open mind and optimizing your daily tasks for continuous improvements. Using this approach gives you a better chance of reaching the desired goals. Otherwise, you cling to traditional techniques and the hope that things will change when you find a secret solution. When, in reality, everything in the natural world progresses slowly to create a significant change.

According to the Pareto Principle, ‘80% of production generates from 20% efforts’. The Kaizen philosophy encourages us to use this same strategy when it discusses the elimination of ‘wastefulness.’ You can do this by identifying futile tasks and time-consuming chores within your daily routine. Once you recognize these tasks, replace them with something meaningful.

  Inside China's terrifying humanoid robot factory with piles of eerie silicone masks
Posted by: mrtrout - 06-11-2024 , 05:37 PM - Forum: Photo Albums, Images, & Videos - No Replies

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/...rkers.html    Inside China's terrifying humanoid robot factory with piles of eerie silicone masks and body parts as scientists develop life-like machines 'with emotions' to replace workers    By NATASHA ANDERSON FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 10:38 EDT, 11 June 2024 | UPDATED: 10:52 EDT, 11 June 2024    A factory in China is developing hyper-realistic humanoid robots that can chillingly mimic human facial expressions and emotions in scientists' latest attempt to replace workers with machines.

Ex-Robots, a robotics firm based in the northeastern coastal city of Dalian, is trying to create lifelike droids that engineers hope will soon be used in the healthcare and education industries.

Terrifying footage from inside the Ex-Robots factory shows workers surrounded by piles of disembodied heads, neck-length silicone masks and spare limbs as they work to construct the most complex class of robotic products in the world.

Drawings of robot designs are adorned on a wall, while female robots donning luxurious wigs and full faces of make-up are displayed along the factory floor.

More unsettling, however, is how the company's engineers are creating robotic duplicates of themselves and training them to replicate their expressions and emotions.    Video captured from inside the factory shows how when an Ex-Robots worker moves her head, smiles and sticks out her tongue, a humanoid robot mimics her exact movement.

The droids use tiny motors installed in several spaces in their heads and artificial intelligence to recognise and imitate human behaviour.

'We have our own software and algorithm teams,' Ex-Robots Chief Executive Li Boyang revealed.

'There are many basic models and algorithms that are commonly open source, which everyone uses. However, we concentrate more on how to enable the AI to recognise and express expressions and emotions.'

He added that the start-up, which was established in 2009 and started developing humanoid robots in 2016, is also working on its 'foundation model'.

'The model we're making is multi-modal and capable of emotional expression,' Li said. 'It can perceive the surrounding environment and produce appropriate facial feedback.'

Ex-Robots said it takes from two weeks to a month to produce a humanoid robot, with prices ranging from ¥1.5million (£162,000) to ¥2million (£216,000).  The main purpose of the company's robots so far is for display in museums, one of which Ex-Robots has housed in the same building as its factory.

Looking ahead, Li believes that humanoid robots will have a bigger role to play in the healthcare and education industries.

'Psychological counselling and health are certainly future application scenarios. We are currently conducting related research, such as auxiliary treatment and preliminary screening for emotional and psychological disorders,' he said.

'Moreover, I believe that emotional interaction has broader applications in service fields, such as those aimed at children.'

Ex-Robots showcased its humanoids robots at the World Robot Conference, China's leading robotics conference and exhibition, in August last year, putting its animatronic heads and humanoid robots on display.

Li, during the conference, said humanoid robots were ideal for roles that require interacting with the public, such as in museums, tourist attractions, school settings and 'companion scenarios'.

The company claimed the droids personified the image of what robots are supposed to be in the popular imagination - with synthetic skin and lifelike facial expressions complimented by moving arms and hands.

Ex-Robots reportedly used 3D scanning, digital design and 3D printing to create its synthetic skin and in 2023 was credited with having crafted the lightest humanoid robot in the world, according to Interesting Engineering.  Ex-Robots opened its EX Future Science and Technology Museum in China's Liaoning Province in 2022, six years after the firm began its droid development efforts.

The museum - which is the first robot museum in the country - aims to immerse visitors in a complete robotic experience, even replacing humans with humanoid robots as guides.

The robots also use advanced technology, intelligent voice dialogue, and cognitive technology to interact directly with visitors.

The museum also features an AI robot research centre, a bionic robot manufacturing centre, bionic experimental module, and other cutting-edge exhibits that visitors can explore.

  How To Protect Your Family’s Smartphones While on Vacation McAfee
Posted by: mrtrout - 06-08-2024 , 11:38 PM - Forum: Phones & Tablets News - No Replies

https://www.mcafee.com/blogs/family-safe...-vacation/  How To Protect Your Family’s Smartphones While on Vacation   
Amy Bunn
JUN 06, 2024

9 MIN READ

Summer is synonymous with vacations, a time when families pack their bags, grab their sunscreen, and embark on exciting adventures. In the digital age, smartphones have become an indispensable part of our lives, serving as cameras, maps, entertainment hubs, and communication tools. While these devices enhance our travel experiences, they also become prime targets for theft or damage while we’re away from home. From keeping us connected with family and friends, assisting in navigation, capturing moments, to even helping us with language translation – it is a device of many conveniences. However, when you bring your smartphone while vacationing, like any other valuable item, it becomes a target for theft and damage. Not to mention the potential for high roaming charges.

Don’t let the fear of losing or damaging your valuable devices dampen your vacation spirit! By taking some simple precautions and implementing effective strategies, you can ensure that your family’s smartphones remain safe and secure throughout your travels. In this blog post, we’ll share essential tips and tricks for safeguarding your devices, so you can focus on creating unforgettable memories without any tech-related worries. This article will provide you with tips on how to protect your family’s smartphones while on vacation. We will cover strategies like enabling security settings, backing up data, checking for travel insurance policies, and utilizing helpful apps. Ensuring the safety of your devices will make your vacation more enjoyable and worry-free.

Smartphone Safety During Vacation
Traveling without smartphones seems almost impossible. However, having them on vacation puts them at risk. In tourist hotspots, where distractions are many, it is easy to lose or have your device stolen. Moreover, using public Wi-Fi networks can expose your smartphone to cyber attacks.

→ Dig Deeper: The Risks of Public Wi-Fi and How to Close the Security Gap

Therefore, it is vital to be proactive in securing both your smartphones and the data they contain. Not only will it save you from the high costs of replacing a lost or damaged phone, but it also prevents potential misuse of personal and financial information. Implementing even just a few of these safety measures can help ensure your family’s smartphones are well-protected during your vacation. So let’s dive into the practical steps you can take.

Step 1: How To Protect Your Smartphone
Invest in Protective Gear: Equipping each device with a sturdy case and screen protector can significantly reduce the risk of damage due to accidental drops or impacts.
Protect Your Devices: Whether you protect yours through a mobile security app or as part of the multi-device coverage that comes with your comprehensive security software, mobile protection can alert you of threats and unsecured networks while also adding in the protection of a VPN.
Regularly Backup Data: Back up photos, contacts, and other essential data to cloud storage or a computer. This ensures that precious memories and information are not lost in case of theft or damage.
Enable Tracking Features: Activate “Find My Phone” or similar features on each device. These tools can help locate a lost or stolen device and even remotely erase its data if necessary.
Exercise Caution with Public Wi-Fi: Public Wi-Fi networks can be vulnerable to hackers. Avoid using them for sensitive activities like online banking. If necessary, utilize a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for added security.
Establish Phone Usage Guidelines: Discuss responsible phone use with children, setting clear expectations and limitations. Encourage them to unplug and fully engage in the vacation experience.
Designate a Secure Storage Location: Establish a designated area in your hotel room or vacation rental for storing phones when not in use. This prevents misplacement and reduces the risk of theft.
Maintain a Low Profile: Avoid openly displaying expensive devices, particularly in crowded areas or unfamiliar surroundings. Discreetness can deter potential thieves.
Consider Insurance Coverage: Depending on your existing insurance policies, you may have coverage for mobile devices. Alternatively, explore dedicated device insurance for added protection.
Prioritize Family Time: Remember, the primary purpose of vacation is to connect with loved ones and create lasting memories. Encourage everyone to put down their phones and fully immerse themselves in the experience.
Step 2: Protecting Your Smartphone Physically
The first layer of protection for your phone should be a physical one. It starts with investing in a good quality, durable phone case. A waterproof case is always a good idea, especially if you’re planning on vacationing near the beach or a pool. A screen protector can also keep your screen from shattering or getting scratched. Remember, you’re more likely to drop your phone while on vacation as you juggle through maps, travel apps, and numerous photo opportunities.

Another aspect of physical protection is to be mindful of where you store your phone. Avoid leaving it in plain sight or unattended, which could invite potential thieves. Instead, carry it in a secure, zipped pocket or bag. If you’re staying at a hotel, consider using the safe to store your phone when not in use. Most importantly, be aware of your surroundings and keep your phone safely tucked away in crowded places.

McAfee Pro Tip: Activating the correct features can determine whether your personal data is lost permanently or if your device can swiftly recover. Install McAfee Mobile Security and learn more tips on what to do if your phone gets stolen on this blog.

Step 3: Data Protection and Privacy
Safeguarding your phone is not just about protecting the physical device—your personal and sensitive data deserves protection too. Before you leave for your vacation, make sure that your phone is password-protected. Optimally, use a complex password, fingerprint, or face recognition feature instead of a simple four-digit PIN. This singular step can deter any prying eyes from accessing your information if your phone is lost or stolen.

Ensure your phone’s software is up to date. Regular updates not only enhance the device’s performance but also incorporate vital security patches, fortifying its defenses against potential threats like malware. By staying vigilant and keeping your phone’s software current, you contribute to a more secure environment, minimizing the risk of unauthorized eyes accessing your valuable information in the event of a loss or theft.

→ Dig Deeper: Why Software Updates Are So Important

Step 4: Backup Your Data
Backing up your smartphone’s data before leaving for vacation can save you from a lot of stress. In case of loss, theft, or damage, having a backup ensures that you won’t lose your cherished photos, contacts, and other essential data. Most smartphones allow you to back up your data to the cloud. Make sure to do this over a safe, secure network and not on public Wi-Fi.

For Android users, Google provides an automatic backup service for things like app data, call history, and settings. You can check if this feature is enabled on your phone by going to the Google Drive App and checking in the Backups section. For iPhone users, iCloud Backup can help save most of your data and settings. To enable it, go to Settings, tap on your name, then tap iCloud and scroll down to tap iCloud Backup.

Step 5: Understand and Manage Roaming Charges
Without proper management, staying connected while abroad can result in expensive roaming charges. Before you leave, check with your mobile provider to understand the costs associated with using your phone abroad. Some providers offer international plans that you can temporarily switch to for your vacation. If your provider’s charges are too high, consider purchasing a local SIM card once you arrive at your destination or use an international data package.

Another way to avoid roaming charges is by using Wi-Fi. Most hotels, cafes, and many public spaces have free Wi-Fi available. However, again, public Wi-Fi is not always safe. So, avoid accessing sensitive information such as bank accounts, and before traveling, download maps and essential content before traveling to reduce the need for constant data usage. This is especially helpful for navigation apps. To protect your data in such situations, it’s advisable to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

→ Dig Deeper: How to Keep Your Data & Devices Safe While Traveling

Step 6: Utilize Helpful Apps
Several apps can help protect your phone and its data during your vacation. Most smartphone operating systems offer a “Find My Phone” feature that can locate, lock, or erase your device if it is lost or stolen. Make sure this feature is enabled before you leave.

Again, antivirus apps can provide an extra layer of protection against virus and malware threats. Password manager apps can help you create and store complex, unique passwords for your accounts to enhance security.

VPN apps can protect your data from being intercepted when using public Wi-Fi networks. There are also apps that monitor your data usage and can alert you if you’re near your limit to avoid unexpected charges. Research and install these apps prior to your vacation for added security and peace of mind.

Final Thoughts
Your family’s smartphones are essential travel companions that deserve as much protection as any other valuable item during your vacation. By physically safeguarding the device, securing your data, backing up regularly, understanding roaming charges, and utilizing productive apps, you can enjoy a worry-free vacation. Remember, in the event of a mishap, having travel insurance can provide an extra layer of financial protection. So, before setting off, review your policy and check if it covers lost or stolen devices. In the end, preparation is key, so take the time to implement these safety measures and enjoy your vacation with peace of mind.

Above and beyond security settings and software, there’s you. Get in the habit of talking with your child for a sense of what they’re doing online. As a mom, I like to ask them about their favorite games, share some funny TikTok clips or cute photos with them, and generally make it a point to be a part of their digital lives. It’s great, because it gives you peace of mind knowing what types of things they are doing or interactions they are having online.

For those of you hitting the road in the coming weeks, enjoy your travels, wherever they take you!

  How a VPN Can Make Your Time Online More Private and Secure
Posted by: mrtrout - 06-02-2024 , 04:22 PM - Forum: Security News - No Replies

https://www.mcafee.com/blogs/privacy-ide...nd-secure/      How a VPN Can Make Your Time Online More Private and Secure     
Jasdev Dhaliwal

6 MIN READ


What is a VPN (virtual private network)? And how can it make your time online more secure—and a little more private too? Here we’ll take a look at what a VPN is, what it has to offer, and how that benefits you.

What is a VPN and how does it protect me?
A VPN is an app that you install on your device to help keep your data safe as you browse the internet. When you turn on your VPN app, your device makes a secure connection to a VPN server that routes internet traffic. Securely. This keeps your online activity private on any network, shielding it from prying eyes. So, while you’re on a VPN, you can browse and bank with the confidence that your passwords, credentials, and financial info are secure. If any malicious actors try to intercept your web traffic, they’ll only see garbled content thanks to your VPN’s encryption functionality.

Does a VPN change my IP address?
Every internet connection is assigned a unique set of numbers called an IP address, which is tied to info such as geographic location or an Internet Service Provider (ISP). A VPN replaces your actual IP address to make it look like you’ve connected to the internet from the physical location of the VPN server, rather than your real location. This is just one reason why so many people use VPNs.

How can I use a VPN to change my IP address?
To change your IP address, you simply open your VPN app, select the server location you’d like to connect to, and you’re done. You’re now browsing with a new IP address. If you’d like to make sure your IP has changed, open a browser and search for “What’s my IP address” and then select one of the results.

When should I use a VPN?
An ideal case for using a VPN is when you’re using public Wi-Fi at the airport, a café, hotel, or just about any place where “free Wi-Fi” is offered. The reason being is that these are open networks, and any somewhat enterprising cybercriminal can tap into these networks and harvest sensitive info as a result. One survey showed that 39% of internet users worldwide understand public Wi-Fi is unsafe, yet some users still bank, shop, and do other sensitive things on public Wi-Fi despite the understood risks.

Further, you have your privacy to consider. You can use a VPN to help stop advertisers from tracking you. Searches you perform and websites you visit won’t be traced back to you, which can prevent advertisers from gleaning info about you and your online habits in general. Moreover, some ISPs collect the browsing history of their users and share it with advertisers and other third parties. A VPN can prevent this type of collection as well.

Can a VPN protect my search history?
A VPN protects your search history through the secure connection you share. When you search for a website or type a URL into your navigation bar, your device sends something called a DNS request, which translates the website into the IP address of the web server. This is how your browser can find the website and serve its content to you. By encrypting your DNS requests, a VPN can hide your search habits and history from those who might use that info as part of building a profile of you. This type of info might be used in a wide variety of ways, from legitimately serving targeted ads to nefarious social engineering.

Are VPNs and “Incognito Mode” and “Private Mode” in browsers the same thing?
Note that a VPN is quite different and far, far more comprehensive than using “Private Mode” or “Incognito Mode” on your browser. Those modes only hide your search history locally on your device — not from others on the internet, like ISPs and advertisers.

Does a VPN make me anonymous?
No, a VPN can’t make you anonymous. Not entirely, anyway. They help secure what you’re doing, but your ISP still knows when you’re using the internet. They just can’t see what you’re doing, what sites you visit, or how long you’ve been on a site.

What about services like Apple’s Private Relay?
Apple’s Private Relay is similar to a VPN in that it changes your IP address so websites you visit can’t tell exactly where you are. It works on iOS and Macs as part of an iCloud+ subscription. Yet there is one important distinction: it only protects your privacy while surfing with the Safari browser.

Per Apple, it works like this:

When Private Relay is enabled, your requests are sent through two separate, secure internet relays. Your IP address is visible to your network provider and to the first relay, which is operated by Apple. Your DNS records are encrypted, so neither party can see the address of the website you’re trying to visit. The second relay, which is operated by a third-party content provider, generates a temporary IP address, decrypts the name of the website you requested, and connects you to the site. All of this is done using the latest internet standards to maintain a high-performance browsing experience while protecting your privacy.

Note that as of this writing, Apple Private Relay is not available in all countries and regions. If you travel somewhere where Private Relay isn’t available, it will automatically turn off and will notify you when it’s unavailable and once more when it’s active again. You can learn more about it here and how you can enable it on your Apple devices.

Do I need a VPN if I have Apple’s Private Relay?
As mentioned above, Private Relay only works with Safari on iOS and macOS as part of an iCloud+ subscription. Even if you are using an Apple device, a VPN is still a good idea because it will protect the info that your device sends outside Safari — such as any info passed along by your apps or any other browsers you might use.

How to get your own VPN
An unlimited VPN with bank-grade encryption comes as part of your McAfee+ subscription and provides the security and privacy benefits above with bank-grade encryption. Additionally, it turns on automatically any time you connect to an unsecured Wi-Fi network, which takes the guesswork out of when you absolutely need to use it.

In all, our VPN makes it practically impossible for cybercriminals or advertisers to access so that what you do online remains private and secure, so you can enjoy your time online with confidence.

  How Do Hackers Hack Phones and How Can I Prevent It?

https://www.mcafee.com/blogs/family-safe...revent-it/    How Do Hackers Hack Phones and How Can I Prevent It?
Jasdev Dhaliwal
MAY 10, 2024

7 MIN READ


How do hackers hack phones? Several ways. Just as there are several ways you can prevent it from happening to you.The thing is that our phones are like little treasure chests. They’re loaded with plenty of personal data, and we use them to shop, bank, and take care of other personal and financial matters—all of which are of high value to identity thieves. However, you can protect yourself and your phone by knowing what to look out for and by taking a few simple steps. Let’s break it down by first taking a look at some of the more common attacks.

Types of Smartphone Hacks and Attacks
Hacking software
Whether hackers sneak it onto your phone by physically accessing your phone or by tricking you into installing it via a phony app, a sketchy website, or a phishing attack, hacking software can create problems for you in a couple of ways:

Keylogging: In the hands of a hacker, keylogging works like a stalker by snooping information as you type, tap, and even talk on your phone.
Trojans: Trojans are types of malware that can be disguised in your phone to extract important data, such as credit card account details or personal information.
Some possible signs of hacking software on your phone include:

A battery that drains way too quickly.
Your phone runs a little sluggish or gets hot.
Apps quit suddenly or your phone shuts off and turns back on.
You see unrecognized data, text, or other charges on your bill.
In all, hacking software can eat up system resources, create conflicts with other apps, and use your data or internet connection to pass along your personal information into the hands of hackers—all of which can lead to some of the symptoms listed above.

Phishing attacks
These are a classic form of attack. In fact, hackers have leveled them at our computers for years now too. Phishing is where hackers impersonate a company or trusted individual to get access to your accounts or personal info or both. And these attacks take many forms, like emails, texts, instant messages, and so forth, some of which can look really legitimate. Common to them are links to bogus sites that attempt to trick you into handing over that info or that install malware to wreak havoc on your device or likewise steal information. Learning how to spot a phishing attack is one way to keep yourself from falling victim to one.

Bluetooth hacking
Professional hackers can use dedicated technologies that search for vulnerable mobile devices with an open Bluetooth connection. Hackers can pull off these attacks when they are within range of your phone, up to 30 feet away, usually in a populated area. When hackers make a Bluetooth connection to your phone, they can possibly access your data and info, yet that data and info must be downloaded while the phone is within range. As you probably gathered, this is a more sophisticated attack given the effort and technology involved.

SIM card swapping
In August of 2019, the CEO of Twitter had his SIM card hacked by SIM card swapping scam. SIM card swapping occurs when a hacker contacts your phone provider, pretends to be you, and then asks for a replacement SIM card. Once the provider sends the new SIM to the hacker, the old SIM card will be deactivated, and your phone number will be effectively stolen. This means the hacker has taken control of your phone calls, messages, and so forth. This method of hacking requires the seemingly not-so-easy task of impersonating someone else, yet clearly, it happened to the CEO of a major tech company. Protecting your personal info and identity online can help prevent hackers from impersonating you to pull off this and other crimes.

Ten tips to prevent your phone from being hacked
While there are several ways a hacker can get into your phone and steal personal and critical information, here are a few tips to keep that from happening:

Use comprehensive security software on your phone. Over the years, we’ve gotten into the good habit of using this on our computers and laptops. Our phones? Not so much. Installing security software on your smartphone gives you a first line of defense against attacks, plus several of the additional security features mentioned below.
Update your phone and its apps. Aside from installing security software, keeping current with updates is a primary way to keep you and your phone safe. Updates can fix vulnerabilities that cybercriminals rely on to pull off their malware-based attacks. Additionally, those updates can help keep your phone and apps running smoothly while also introducing new, helpful features.
Stay safer on the go with a VPN. One way that crooks can hack their way into your phone is via public Wi-Fi, such as at airports, hotels, and even libraries. These networks are public, meaning that your activities are exposed to others on the network—your banking, your password usage, all of it. One way to make a public network private is with a VPN, which can keep you and all you do protected from others on that Wi-Fi hotspot.
Use a password manager. Strong, unique passwords offer another primary line of defense. Yet with all the accounts we have floating around, juggling dozens of strong and unique passwords can feel like a task—thus the temptation to use (and re-use) simpler passwords. Hackers love this because one password can be the key to several accounts. Instead, try a password manager that can create those passwords for you and safely store them as well. Comprehensive security software will include one.
Avoid public charging stations. Charging up at a public station seems so simple and safe. However, some hackers have been known to “juice jack” by installing malware into the charging station. While you “juice up,” they “jack” your passwords and personal info. So what to do about power on the road? You can look into a portable power pack that you can charge up ahead of time or run on AA batteries. They’re pretty inexpensive and easy to track down.
Keep your eyes on your phone. Preventing the actual theft of your phone is important too, as some hacks happen simply because a phone falls into the wrong hands. This is a good case for password or PIN protecting your phone, as well as turning on device tracking so that you can locate your phone or even wipe it remotely if you need to. Apple provides iOS users with a step-by-step guide for remotely wiping devices, and Google offers a guide for Android users as well.
Encrypt your phone. Encrypting your cell phone can save you from being hacked and can protect your calls, messages, and critical information. To check if your iPhone is encrypted can go into Touch ID & Passcode, scroll to the bottom, and see if data protection is enabled (typically this is automatic if you have a passcode enabled). Android users have automatic encryption depending on the type of phone.
Lock your SIM card. Just as you can lock your phone, you can also lock the SIM card that is used to identify you, the owner, and to connect you to your cellular network. Locking it keeps your phone from being used on any other network than yours. If you own an iPhone, you can lock it by following these simple directions. For other platforms, check out the manufacturer’s website.
Turn off your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when not in use. Think of it as closing an otherwise open door. There are several attacks that a dedicated and well-equipped hacker can make on devices where Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are open and discoverable. Likewise, while not a hack, some retailers will track your location in a store using Bluetooth technology for marketing purposes—so switching it off can protect your privacy in some situations as well. You can easily turn off both from your settings and many phones let you do it from a pulldown menu on your home screen as well.
Steer clear of third-party app stores. Google Play and Apple’s App Store have measures in place to review and vet apps to help ensure that they are safe and secure. Third-party sites may not have that process in place. In fact, some third-party sites may intentionally host malicious apps as part of a broader scam. Granted, cybercriminals have found ways to work around Google and Apple’s review process, yet the chances of downloading a safe app from them are far greater than anywhere else. Furthermore, both Google and Apple are quick to remove malicious apps once discovered, making their stores that much safer.

  Massive police sweep across Europe takes down ransomware networks
Posted by: mrtrout - 05-31-2024 , 02:43 PM - Forum: Security News - No Replies

https://apnews.com/article/europe-ransom...0ed41ad934    Massive police sweep across Europe takes down ransomware networks and arrests 4 suspects    BY  MIKE CORDER
Updated 12:47 PM ADT, May 30, 2024

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Police coordinated by the European Union’s justice and police agencies have taken down computer networks responsible for spreading ransomware via infected emails, in what they called the biggest-ever international operation against the lucrative form of cybercrime.

The European Union’s judicial cooperation agency, Eurojust, said Thursday that police arrested four “high value” suspects, took down more than 100 servers and seized control of over 2,000 internet domains.

The huge takedown this week, codenamed Endgame, involved coordinated action in Germany, the Netherlands, France, Denmark, Ukraine, the United States and United Kingdom, Eurojust said. Also, three suspects were arrested in Ukraine and one in Armenia. Searches were carried out in Ukraine, Portugal, the Netherlands and Armenia, EU police agency Europol added.

It is the latest international operation aimed at disrupting malware and ransomware operations. It followed a massive takedown in 2021 of a botnet called Emotet, Eurojust said. A botnet is a network of hijacked computers typically used for malicious activity.    Europol pledged it would not be the last takedown.

“Operation Endgame does not end today. New actions will be announced on the website Operation Endgame,” Europol said in a statement.

Dutch police said that the financial damage inflicted by the network on governments, companies and individual users is estimated to run to hundreds of millions of euros (dollars).

“Millions of people are also victims because their systems were infected, making them part of these botnets,” the Dutch statement said.

Eurojust said that one of the main suspects earned cryptocurrency worth at least 69 million euros ($74 million) by renting out criminal infrastructure for spreading ransomware.

“The suspect’s transactions are constantly being monitored and legal permission to seize these assets upon future actions has already been obtained,” EU police agency Europol added.

The operation targeted malware “droppers” called IcedID, Pikabot, Smokeloader, Bumblebee and Trickbot. A dropper is malicious software usually spread in emails containing infected links or attachments such as shipping invoices or order forms.

“This approach had a global impact on the dropper ecosystem,” Europol said. “The malware, whose infrastructure was taken down during the action days, facilitated attacks with ransomware and other malicious software.”

Ben Jones, CEO at Searchlight Cyber, a company that provides intelligence on the dark web, hailed the operation as an example of how international cooperation can crack down on cybercrime.

“Where cybercriminals previously used their ability to operate across borders to evade the arm of justice, operations like Endgame — coordinated across multiple jurisdictions — demonstrate that this evasion tactic is increasingly untenable,” Jones said in comments emailed to The Associated Press. “Law enforcement’s net is widening and the ‘safe zones’ for cybercriminal activity are becoming harder and harder to come by.”

Dutch police said that the actions should alert cybercriminals that they can be caught.

“This operation shows that you always leave tracks, nobody is unfindable, even online,” Stan Duijf, of the Dutch National Police, said in a video statement.

The deputy head of Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office, Martina Link, described it as “the biggest international cyber police operation so far.”

“Thanks to intensive international cooperation, it was possible to render six of the biggest malware families harmless,” she said in a statement.

German authorities are seeking the arrest of seven people on suspicion of being members of a criminal organization whose aim was to spread the Trickbot malware. An eighth person is suspected of being one of the ringleaders of the group behind Smokeloader.

Europol said it was adding the eight suspects being sought by Germany to its most-wanted list.

  Frank Stronach: The gutting of our manufacturing industries has made Canada weak
Posted by: mrtrout - 05-28-2024 , 01:47 PM - Forum: Photo Albums, Images, & Videos - No Replies

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/topstori...d907&ei=15    Frank Stronach: The gutting of our manufacturing industries has made Canada weak
Opinion by Frank Stronach • 2h • 4 min read      Made in China: it’s the label you see on many products sold in stores throughout the country. The odd time, you’ll see a product manufactured in some other country. But you rarely see a product that’s made here in Canada.

We used to make fridges and phones in Canada. We even built the world’s fastest fighter jet (I once worked in a factory that made parts for the supersonic plane).

When we were a manufacturing powerhouse, our living standards were the envy of the world. Today, as our manufacturing sector shrivels, our living standards are likewise dropping.

China, on the other hand, is a rapidly rising economic and military superpower. The Chinese used to buy their fighter jets and aircraft carriers from other countries. Now they mostly make their own.
Back in the 1990s and early 2000s, it was popular for economists to say that advanced economies like Canada and the United States no longer needed to manufacture products. This work, they argued, could be offshored to countries where it could be done more cheaply.

Instead, they claimed that we should focus on building wealth through software and the knowledge economy — products and services that didn’t require physical input or materials like steel and plastic.

According to the experts, we’d all end up being highly skilled knowledge workers creating software and manipulating data, and we’d be much better off, no longer needing to dirty our hands digging minerals from the earth and toiling on factory assembly lines.

I never bought into that line of thinking — and not just because I worked in the so-called “old economy” of manufacturing. To me, a country that abandons its manufacturing is doomed to fall behind and decay.

Over the years, we’ve become less and less preoccupied with creating real wealth, and more and more engaged in the process of transferring and redistributing the declining wealth that we do generate. As a result, we’ve slowly abandoned our farms and factories and today import many of the products we buy and the food we consume.

The consequences of relinquishing our manufacturing sector are serious and far-reaching. A decline in manufacturing capability will lead to a decline in the country’s technology base and technical know-how.

The manufacturing industry and its supply base jointly develop a vast array of technologies and products — everything from sophisticated electronics to new composite metals and plastics. For example, when I was chair of Magna International, we joined forces with Apple to develop the touch-screen glass technology for the iPhone, a spin-off product that arose from our core automotive business.

The technologies incubated in the manufacturing sector have applications not only in a wide range of industries but also in the defence industry, which is vital for safeguarding our freedom and the protection of democracies around the world.

There was an eye-opening article published by the Royal United Services Institute in the United Kingdom two years ago, which asked the question: “Can the West still provide the arsenal of democracy?” Its conclusion was a resounding “no.” Not only do we no longer have the manufacturing capacity to fight a crude war like the one Russia and Ukraine are engaged in, we’re also losing the ability to produce advanced new weapons.

When we’re no longer able to manufacture the high-tech components for new fighter jets or submarines, who is going to make them for us? Russia? China?    Web Protection by

  Doug Ingle, Iron Butterfly Singer and Organist, Dead at 78
Posted by: mrtrout - 05-26-2024 , 04:45 PM - Forum: Off Topic Chat - No Replies

https://www.msn.com/en-us/music/news/dou...r-BB1n351x    Doug Ingle, Iron Butterfly Singer and Organist, Dead at 78
Story by Daniel Kreps • 20h • 2 min read    Doug Ingle, the founding singer and organist of the late Sixties hard rock band Iron Butterfly and the co-writer of the group's hit "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," has died at the age of 78.

The singer's son Doug Ingle Jr. confirmed his father's death on social media (via Blabbermouth), "It's with a heavy heart & great sadness to announce the passing of my Father Doug Ingle. Dad passed away peacefully [Friday] evening [May 24] in the presence of family." No cause of death was provided.

Ingle was the last surviving member of Iron Butterfly's "classic," In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida-era lineup: Guitarist Erik Brann died in 2003 at the age of 52, bassist Lee Dornan died in 2012 at the age of 70, and drummer Ron Bushy died in 2021 at the age of 79.
Of the four musicians in the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida lineup, Ingle was the only one who was a founding member, having formed Iron Butterfly in San Diego in 1966. After a handful of lineup changes, a five-piece Iron Butterfly including Ingle and Bushy put out the band's debut Heavy in 1968; soon after release, the other three members left and were replaced by Brann and Dornan, resulting in the lineup that would create the 17-minute psych-rock epic "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida."


Released less than six months after Heavy and the lineup shuffle, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida would sell a reported 30 million copies worldwide, and a three-minute version of the title track - whose title was based on Bushy's mishearing of "In the Garden of Eden" - became a Top 5 hit on the Hot 100 and a classic rock staple.

"‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida' was written as a slow country ballad, about one-and-a-half minutes long," Bushy told It's Psychedelic Baby magazine in 2020. "I came home late one night and Doug [Ingle] had been drinking a whole gallon of Red Mountain wine. I asked him what he had done, while he has been playing a slow ballad on his Vox keyboard. It was hard to understand him because he was so drunk … so I wrote it down on a napkin exactly how it sounded phonetically to me: ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.' It was supposed to be ‘In the Garden of Eden.'"

The classic lineup quickly attempted to capitalize on the success with 1969's Ball, which was primarily written by Ingle, but the album failed to yield any hit singles. The singer remained with Iron Butterfly for one more studio album, 1970's Metamorphosis, before the band broke up in 1971, in part due to debts the band incurred from the mismanagement.

When Bushy and Brann reunited Iron Butterfly in 1975, Ingle did not take part, though he did perform with some of the countless iterations of Iron Butterfly that toured over the ensuing decades, including most recently in 1999.      Website status:
