DON'T MISS A THING
This command injection flaw exposes the Ubiquiti admin interface to a number of risky attacks, SEC Consult said. For example, an attacker could connect to a vulnerable device by opening a port binding or reverse shell, and also change the password because the service runs as root. “The vulnerability can be exploited by luring an attacked user to click on a crafted link or just surf on a malicious website,” SEC Consult said in its advisory. “The whole attack can be performed via a single GET-request and is very simple since there is no CSRF protection.”
It has been found that a mischievous group of hackers claiming to have access to over 300 million iCloud accounts is threatening Apple to remotely wipe data from those millions of Apple devices unless Apple pays it $75,000 in crypto-currency or $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards. The hacking group, who identified themselves as 'Turkish Crime Family,' has demanded a ransom to be paid in Bitcoin or Ethereum, another popular crypto-currency.
A team of security researchers from Cybellum, an Israeli zero-day prevention firm, has discovered a new Windows vulnerability that could allow hackers to take full control of your computer. Dubbed DoubleAgent, the new injecting code technique works on all versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems, starting from Windows XP to the latest release of Windows 10. What's worse? DoubleAgent exploits a 15-years-old undocumented legitimate feature of Windows called "Application Verifier," which cannot be patched.
Amazon has agreed to hand over Alexa data to prosecutors in a murder trial after the defendant, an Echo owner, gave permission. The company had initially refused to do so, saying it "seeks to protect the privacy rights of its customers" and that Alexa's questions and answers are protected by the first amendment.
I totally agree with Marques Browniee he hits the nail on the head on every point. I would love to see apple make these change as i'm sure many would as well.
If your favorite website or internet service isn't accessible today, it's probably not just you. Amazon Web Services' S3 cloud storage is experiencing "high error rates" that have caused chaos among many of the sites that depend on AWS to work.
In an era of always-on devices I'm glad to see Amazon not freely handing over our privacy. If you own an amazon echo you should definitely read through this article.
Amazon has filed a motion to dismiss a search warrant for recordings from an Echo owned by a suspected murderer. Amazon argues that both its users’ requests to Alexa and the response the company produces are protected under the First Amendment. The company says it should only have to turn this data over if law enforcement meets a high burden of proof.
Over the weekend I picked up a ring "Video Doorbell" and I must say I am impressed with it out of the box.
For those that have not heard of ring, they are a California-based company bringing video doorbells and security cameras to homes.
I was impressed as soon as I opened the box seeing everything I would need for installation included, screwdrivers, drill bits, and even a level it made installation a cinch.
Setup on our iPhone was simple and quick, connect to its wifi run through the settings and switch it over to your home wifi. These video doorbells also use inferred for motion detection given you and alert even before they press that button. I'm still playing with the sensitivity to find that sweet spot
You also get two-way audio communication through the bell.
Keep a look out for a full review, but so far I'm impressed with the company as a whole.

The problem is UltraFine 5K Display becomes unusable when positioned within 6.6-feet of a router. I discovered this issue after purchasing my own UltraFine 5K Display last week and thinking something was defective with my hardware.
Right out of the box, UltraFine 5K Display was hardly usable as it would consistently disconnect and even freeze my MacBook Pro which made it unusable for work on Thursday and Friday. Connecting it to my MacBook Pro consistently resulted in needing to reboot my machine to continue working.
Andrew Tarantola said it well in TechCrunch's artilce "Enforcing privacy policies that specifically "exclude persons who are not United States citizens or lawful permanent residents," while aimed at enhancing domestic immigration laws, effectively invalidates America's part of the Data Shield agreement, opens the current administration up to sanctions by the EU and could lead our allies across the Atlantic to suspend the agreement outright."
Some of you may know, my boys are into drone racing. With that comes lots of crashing and repairing. I've recently come across and keeping my eye on "NIMBUS" on Indiegogo.
NIMBUS - monocoque racing drone Full carbon fiber monocoque body racing drone for lightweight with extreme strength and durability.
Casebolt is now listed as the Senior Director of Engineering, Closures & Mechanisms at Tesla Motors on his LinkedIn profile, which was updated on Wednesday. He is named in 52 patients, spanning battery mounts, hinge clutches for computing devices, thermal management systems, and adhesive application and layering.
Are you running a MongoDB or know someone that is? It may be time to make sure it's patched and configured correctly. Last Monday a security researcher identified nearly 200 instances of MongoDB installations that have been erased and held for ransom, asking victims to pay hefty ransoms for the data to be restored. By Tuesday, this number reached approximately 2,000 databases and by Friday this count reached 10,500.
A must read if you own a D-Link router or webcam as they are under fire from the Federal Trade Commission for not doing enough to secure its products, including connected home devices —a threat Apple has countered via secure authentication chips in HomeKit-certified hardware
The docked pay comes as a result of Apple's performance-based cash incentive opportunities for its top brass. With net sales of $215.6 billion and operating income of $60 billion, Apple came in slightly short of its respective target goals set by the company's compensation committee.
My advice, Try not to think of the Airpods are a headphones replacement but rather than an upgrade to an earbud like a Jawbone. The ease of pairing and moving across devices does make you want to take it everywhere. As an earbud, phone calls are clear on both ends, I heard no signs of clipping and the directional mic was impressive. As for Bluetooth, I found no signal drops or noise in any of my pockets.
My experience so far has been positive, with speed tests over wifi hitting 160mb's and what seems like no dead spots in my 3200sqft home. I'm a happy camper even though I feel the price is sill a bit steep. It may be possible as eero matures a bit more it may grow into its price tag. As is, it's a bit steep for the average user.
Wow, This startup was one I've been following since the beginning, and the direction I believe we were going in the next 5-10 years. Scanadu seems like something out of StarTrak but some day we will get there.
It seems Scanadu did not get full approval from the Food and Drug Administration even though they have been working closely with them.
I really hope they find a way around this.
The backdoor actually resides in the desktop Application Programming Interface (API) that allows third-party plugins and apps to communicate with Microsoft-owned Skype — the popular video chat and messaging service.
