Anyone wanting to create an online shop could just hack together WordPress and Shopify.Now is a great time to have lofty aspirations, but lack any sort of technical prowess whatsoever.Whenever you use someone s code, you re essentially making a big leap of faith that they know what they re doing.Karim Rahal, a brilliant 14-year-old security researcher and ethical hacker from Lebanon, discovered the stored XSS cross-site scripting vulnerability in the plugin.Before we delve into how he did it, it s probably a good idea to explain what Stored XSS is.Many websites let you upload your own text-based content.

I had the Vauxhall Mokka during an ad campaign for the car, and driving past the billboards all shiny, mustard-coloured bulk in the actual car a cheery, school-run blue, a rounded, friendly nose was like seeing Myleene Klass in an M ad for your bra.It is sturdy and handsome, without being glamorous, as befits its bid for the crossover crown, vying with the Nissan Juke and the Skoda Yeti.There s a diesel option; I had the 1.4 petrol, all-wheel drive, which acquits itself pretty neatly.If you imagine these three cars as interns, the Mokka would uncomplainingly get you a coffee, just as you d ordered it; the Juke wouldn t be served in a coffee shop because of its piercings and intimidating makeup; and the Yeti would get a coffee and a sandwich you didn t really want, leaving you feeling obscurely guilty and annoyed.All of these cars deserve the minimum wage.Despite its versatility, I was happiest in town: the fuel economy isn t the best, but the eco alerts on the dash, even though I never really understand them, make me feel as if I m driving responsibly.

Samsung is due to finally announce the results of its investigation into the exploding Galaxy Note7s, but a report by The Wall Street Journal has some information about what the company has discovered.According to the publication s sources, Samsung has concluded that irregularly sized batteries are primarily to blame for the debacle, which resulted in a massive global recall.The report says that the faulty batteries were made by affiliate Samsung SDI and Hong Kong-based Amperex Technology Ltd., the only two firms to supply Note7 batteries.Both manufacturers produced flawed batteries, the company reportedly found, with the first round of fires caused by Samsung SDI batteries.The issue with the batteries from Samsung SDI was an irregularly sized battery that didn t fit properly in the phone, according to the people, who said that the incongruence caused the overheating.However, while Samsung originally believed the issue was confined to batteries produced by Samsung SDI, the move to quickly replace phones after the first round of fires caused issues with the other supplier as well, according to the WSJ: In the Galaxy Note 7 phones carrying batteries made by ATL, the flaw centers on a manufacturing issue resulting from the quick ramp-up in production of replacement phones, these people said.

OnePlus has issued another OxygenOS update for its flagship OnePlus 3 and 3T handsets, within less than two weeks after rolling out the previous version 4.0.1.The new build bearing version number 4.0.2 is an incremental rollout as its name suggests, and bundles all the changes present in 4.0.1 or 4.0 such as upgrade to Android Nougat, new design for notifications and settings menu, multi-window view, status bar icon options and more.One significant fix in this release is for Google Play Store download, which was a major problem in the last update.Although, the company listed a few workarounds, OxygenOS 4.0.2 crushes this bug and increases the stability of the system.It is important to note that if you are trying to download from the Play Store using data roaming, this will not work.However, this is quite a common Google issue.

To determine whether a mobile app is potentially harmful, Google listens for the sound of silence.Android devices that support Google Play include a security mechanism called Verify Apps, which takes the form of a setting in a device's Settings app.Verify Apps sends Google anonymized data when users install apps from outside Google Play – to say nothing about the data available from apps installed through Google Play."Verify Apps checks if there are potentially harmful apps PHAs on your device," said Megan Ruthven in a post to the Android developer blog on Tuesday."If a PHA is found, Verify Apps warns the user and enables them sic to uninstall the app."Determining whether an app qualifies as potentially harmful requires data, and one of the things Google measures to make that determination is whether devices that have downloaded the app in question have stopped invoking the Verify Apps mechanism.

In the world of superyachts, bigger is always better, but one-of-a-kind features are better yet.How about a detachable party barge and an autonomous passenger drone?Two U.K. firms, the Henry Ward Design studio and engineering design consultancy BMT Nigel Gee, collaborated to create the 66-meter 216-foot superyacht concept Time, according to Robb Report.The explorer-style yacht has seven levels, three VIP cabins, and a deck devoted to wellness that includes a gym, massage room, sauna, and hot tub.A sky deck accessible from the wellness deck is suspended 15 meters almost 50 feet above sea level for the best views.The supporting tower does double duty as an inverted climbing tower that stretches over an 8-meter swimming pool.

These challenges aren t new, but they are amplified when product clutter is abundant and ownership rights are hard to establish -- in short, the very things that happen in the digital world.Thirty years ago, Apple made a beautiful machine to compete against personal computers -- and ended up with less than 3 percent of global market share.Reviewers raved about the Macintosh, but users bought PCs because those computers let them connect with other users.And consider the Norwegian firm Schibsted, a newspaper company that managed one of the most successful online transitions in the media world.Its success came not from posting great content online but from capitalizing on the winner-take-all dynamic in classifieds, a product that connects buyers and sellers.Complements are products or services that increase the value your core product delivers to users.

Most people are aware they shouldn't post sensitive and personally identifying information on social media, such as a letter with their address or a plane ticket, as they could be used by scammers.And they most certainly wouldn't publicly share their passwords.Sharing pictures, however, is something everyone is comfortable with.But research has revealed that these can also be used to glean telling information.Posing for a picture while holding your hands up in a peace sign could pose a security threat, with hackers able to recreate prints that are the key to phones, computers and tablets.Researchers at Japan's National Institute of Informatics NII have found that fingerprints can be easily recreated from photos taken up to three metres away without the need for advanced technology.

Om Google, Facebook och Amazon erbjöd finansiella tjänster uppger 31 procent att de skulle vara intresserade av banktjänster och 29 procent att de skulle överväga att byta om det rörde sig om försäkringstjänster.Det visar en global undersökning från Accenture, där nästan 33 000 personer i 18 länder har tillfrågats, som nyhetsbyrån Reuters tagit del av.Enligt undersökningen finns ett sug efter banker och försäkringsbolag som använder sig av automatiserad rådgivning med artificiell intelligens utan mänsklig inblandning.Redan i dag är det en trend bland banker och investmentbolag att skapa så kallade robotrådgivare som erbjuder automatiserade investeringsråd via webbaserade plattformar, något som också blir billigare än traditionella, mänskliga, finansiella rådgivare.Läs också: Uppstickarbank finns bara i mobilen – nu växer den i EuropaKonsumenterna i dag ser ett gap mellan bankerna och de tjänster som de tre it-jättarna erbjuder konstaterar Piercarlo Gera, som är chef för Accenture Financial Services.

Att kontrollera över 100 drönare individuellt vore inte praktiskt, noterar Pentagon ... Foto: US Department of DefenseEn svärm på över 100 drönare kan komma att användas i framtida krig.Över en amerikansk försvarsbas i Mojaveöknen den 16 oktober i fjol flög tre jaktplan av modellen F/A-18F Super Hornet.Svärmen demonstrerade snart flockbeteenden genom att ta kollektiva beslut, flyga i formation och förmåga att reparera sig utan mänsklig inblandning.Enligt Pentagon – som ligger bakom utvecklingen av mikrodrönarna – var testet så lyckat att det amerikanska försvarsdepartementet nu kallar det Den stora svärmen .Därför är mikrodrönarna inte förprogrammerade och synkroniserade individer utan en kollektiv organism som delar en distribuerad hjärna.

Många techbolag inklusive Spotify, Apple och Facebook har valt att ha sina internationella huvudkontor och ägarbolag i mindre europeiska länder för att utnyttja de nationella lagarna för att betala mindre skatt.Även genom att förflytta vinsten till skatteparadis som Bermuda.Men Snap Inc, moderbolaget till Snapchat, har valt att gå en annan väg, skriver the Wall Street Journal.Bolaget, som gör sig redo för en börsnotering vilket kan värdera bolaget till 25 miljarder dollar, har bestämt sig för att öppna sitt internationella kontor i London.Snap kommer omedelbart att låta alla sina internationella intäkter gå genom sin verksamhet i Storbritannien för att sedan börja samla in och betala skatt i de länder där de lokala kontoren ligger.Storbritannien, som har en bolagsskatt på cirka 20 procent men väntas gå ner till 17,5 procent 2020, har en rejält högre skattesats än exempelvis Irlands 12,5 procent.
