Here's yet another reason to make sure you lock down your clutch of cloud services: cryptocurrency mining.Security outfit RedLock's security trends report [PDF], out this month, said developers and organizations are not securing their AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform systems, allowing miscreants to hijack them to steal processor cycles for digging up alt-coins.It's believed hackers are able to get into boxes by using their default credentials.RedLock says companies stung this way included security company Gemalto and insurer Aviva.Its investigators “found a number of Kubernetes administrative consoles deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform that were not password protected,” the report stated.It's one way to save yourself the price of enough iron to mine even one Bitcoin.

Ah, WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access): you've protected our Wi-Fi so well for so many years now.Unfortunately, that illusion of safety was shattered earlier today when security researcher Mathy Vanhoef reported a vulnerability in the WPA2 handshake protocol that he's calling KRACK (for "Key Reinstallation Attack).You'll find more information about it in our earlier coverage.Fortunately, Apple, Google and Microsoft have all already issued statements saying they've addressed the issue in some form or another."Microsoft released security updates on October 10th and customers who have Windows Update enabled and applied the security updates, are protected automatically," the company said in a statement."We updated to protect customers as soon as possible, but as a responsible industry partner, we withheld disclosure until other vendors could develop and release updates."

OnLeaks has teamed up with MySmartPrice and released a number of renders along with a 360-degree video of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A5 and A7 (2018).They show the two devices from all angles, revealing that they might feature thin bezels, just like the Galaxy S8 series and Note 8.Both will also sport a single camera on the back along with a fingerprint scanner located below it.A flash module will also be present, although OnLeaks forgot to add it to the renders, which you can check out below.Rumors suggest that the Galaxy A5 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display, while the one on the Galaxy A7 is said to measure 6-inches and offer the same resolution.Aside from the size differences, the two handsets will likely be quite similar in terms of specs as well as looks.

In response to a high-profile protest against Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey said the social network will up its game when it comes to monitoring content and policing hateful and harassing tweets.Dorsey took to Twitter on Friday night to post a string of tweets about "critical" policy decisions he said the company had made earlier Friday.Twitter will take a "more aggressive stance" regarding its rules involving "unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorify violence," Dorsey tweeted.Dorsey's tweets came the same day as the WomenBoycottTwitter protest.The boycott was also designed to show solidarity for Rose McGowan, one of several people who've called out film producer Harvey Weinstein for alleged sexual harassment and assaults against women.Twitter temporarily froze McGowan's account Thursday after she'd posted tweets about Weinstein.

As an urban technologist, I’m often asked to give an example of a compelling smart city application that real people are using.But to be honest, there really isn’t too much to point to – yet.Cities may be getting smarter, but they haven’t noticeably changed from a user perspective.It seems like most of the digital advances in cities have been invisible and focused on city operations, rather than on the parts of the city that people can see, touch, and use.Sure, it’s important that city managers can better identify water leaks, or more accurately predict the likelihood of a building failing an inspection, but there isn’t a direct, personal, benefit to city dwellers.So it’s understandable that some people feel like there hasn’t been much progress.

The iPhone maker says fans have reported the music-making application no longer launches properly after installing the new iOS update with iCloud integration switched on.Disabling iCloud access for GarageBand, through the iCloud menu in Settings, allows the application to run, but users won't be able to access any GarageBand songs stored on iCloud.This leaves GarageBand crippled for many Cupertino loyalists who had relied on iCloud to back up and save their projects, particularly those who have transitioned from a notebook computer to an iPad as their primary machine.Not surprisingly, folks are less than happy with the matter...@AppleSupport ios11.0.3 now...still no fix for Garageband not co-oping with iCloud.— WesMartinArtist (@WesMartinArtist) October 13, 2017

Delta just did away with the standard, antiquated flight check-in process that’s plagued modern flyers for years.Now, Delta passengers’ boarding passes will automatically be sent out 24 hours prior to a flight, so long as they use Delta’s mobile app.The change was noted in the iOS version of the Fly Delta app, and it’s sure to be a welcome one to those who hate having to go through the cumbersome online process.The Android app doesn’t yet appear to have the option.This is notable because no other US airline offers this service, and it should hopefully inspire others to follow suit.German airline Lufthansa does automatic check-in, and JetBlue briefly tried a pilot program with select customers of its Even More Space pricing tier back in 2014.

Rose McGowan, one of the first women to be named as a victim in the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal, was briefly suspended by Twitter after commenting on the controversy.The 44-year-old actress, who has been a prominent figure in the controversy engulfing Hollywood after she was named alongside Ashley Judd in a New York Times expose last week, said "powerful forces" were behind the block.On Thursday Twitter reinstated her account and said it had been suspended for posting a private number in a now-deleted tweet.According to the New York Times, she had received $100,000 from Weinstein after an encounter with the producer in a hotel room during Sundance Film Festival in 1997.McGowan didn't speak to the publication, but praised its journalists, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey "for [their] incredible work".Since then, she has used Twitter to comment on the controversy, praise women coming forward and call out those she believes should have done more to expose the producer's actions.

Private electric companies in the US were targeted by suspected North Korean hackers last month.Although no evidence was uncovered of the hackers having compromised industrial control systems, the phishing emails sent to targeted firms may be indicative of a possible disruptive attack in the future.The phishing emails were sent out by the hackers on 22 September and were detected by security experts at FireEye, who believe that the campaign was likely and "early-stage reconnaissance" mission, and not a disruptive cyberattack aimed at crippling industrial control systems.FireEye experts said that they have yet to observe North Korean hackers using any kind of specialised malware to "compromise or manipulate" industrial control systems.The researchers suspect that Pyongyang's state-backed hackers likely do not have access to such capabilities.However, North Korean hackers have been suspected to have previously targeted rival South's power grids with wiper malware.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Researchers at the University of Illinois are working to turn a complex materials design problem into an intuitive concept, understandable to engineers from novice to advanced experience levels.The group developed guidelines to help understand materials engineered to become thicker when stretched.This highly useful property, which is not commonly found in nature, has applications for protective sports equipment, body armor and biomedical devices.The team presented their research at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers International Design Engineering Technical Conferences and Computers and Information in Engineering Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, where they received the Freudenstein Young Investigator Award for their paper.The materials these engineers are working with, called auxetics, do the just the opposite - they become thicker in the middle when stretched - a difficult concept to grasp, and that is a problem, said Girish Krishnan, a professor of industrial and enterprise systems engineering and study co-author."The existing methods for explaining the behavior and properties of auxetic materials are computationally intensive," Krishnan said.

Aim is to give developers a way to package apps in a consistent way.Automation company Chef has launched a new SaaS-based service for packaging apps that is said to give developers complete control over the containerised application lifecycle.Habitat Builder from Chef is billed as the “fastest way to package apps simply and consistently for deployment and management across flexible cloud-native architecture,” such as those across on-premises and in the cloud as Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, and Cloud Foundry.The tech will mean that developers won’t need to commit to a particular export format or runtime – until the applications are deployed.Whilst Habitat also offers languages such as Node’js, Java, and Ruby on Rails, and it automatically detects what language tooling will be used for building an artefact for the app.“While the application portability benefits of containers are widely recognised, lack of consistency in packaging and orchestration across the application lifecycle has, in many cases, limited the success of their deployment at scale, even when using cloud-native architectures,” said Stephen Elliot, Programme Vice President at IDC.

To install a new IOS on an old phone can sometimes get one to believe Apple deliberately makes the experience worse in order to sell more new Iphones (IOS 7 on the Iphone 4 was a really sad experience, but probably most because of its enkärniga processor).Google searches for ”Iphone slow” rushing always in the height in the autumn, when new versions of IOS rolled out to millions of users.But there is no evidence that Apple engaged in so-called planned aging for the Iphone, in any case, if we are to believe the company Futuremark.In fact, performs most of the Iphone models about equally well throughout his life.Futuremark collected user data from their own test bench, 3DMark, to compare the user's performance over a longer period of time.3DMark to measure the Iphones performance on the processor of the respective gpu and give points for how it performs.

Gambit was one of the most popular X-Men characters of the 1990s, but his solo movie has been stalled for years.A n the move that gets the project going again?It’s been a revolving door behind the camera for Gambit, the X-Men spinoff movie set to star Channing Tatum as the popular Cajun mutant, but the project might finally have found a new director in Pirates of the Caribbean and A Cure For Wellness filmmaker Gore Verbinski.The Oscar-winning director is reportedly close to signing a deal to direct Gambit for 20th Century Fox, according to Deadline, and would bring his flair for action-filled spectacle to the X-Men universe if all goes well with negotiations.Verbinski is the latest director to join the project after several high-profile filmmakers were attached to the film at one point or another and eventually exited.Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman was previously attached to direct the film, and the same goes for Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt.
