The Key Reinstallation Attacks, aka KRACK, sounds scary – and it is an embarrassing oversight for the IEEE and its 802.11i protocol – but there are important caveats.TL;DR on the KRACK WPA2 stuff - you can repeatedly resend the 3rd packet in a WPA2 handshake and it'll reset the key state, which leads to nonce reuse, which leads to trivial decryption with known plaintext.— Graham Spookyland (@gsuberland) October 16, 2017Firstly, there are some limitations.For a start, an eavesdropper has to be in wireless range of the target network, and have the time and specialized software to pull off the KRACK technique.There is no, to the best of our knowledge, working exploit code available yet – and practical attacks may only be possible against Linux and Android.

Video game historians oft speak of the failed collaboration between Nintendo and Sony that spawned the original PlayStation console.The deserted Nintendo PlayStation, which fell through just before production began, has soured the relationship between the companies for the last two decades.But now, 26 years after the Nintendo PlayStation failed to make its way into the world, Sony is going to officially publish games for the Nintendo Switch.The story starts with a new video game publishing arm of Sony’s massive music division, Sony Music Entertainment.The publishing arm is called UNTIES and its goal is to bring unique, overlooked indie games to a wider audience.The first game that the studio plans to publish is called Tiny Metal which, according to a description sent to TechRadar by UNTIES, is described as “a classic style strategy sim … [that’s a] fusion of classic turn-based strategy battles and cutting-edge 3D graphics powered by Unreal Engine.”

Bids are due on Thursday, the deadline for cities that want the e-commerce giant to build a second headquarters in their hometown.Dubbed HQ2, Amazon's campus will bring an estimated 50,000 jobs, and the company will invest $5 billion in its construction.But so far, it looks like Newark, New Jersey could be offering Amazon the most.New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to deploy $7 billion in potential tax incentives for HQ2 in the state's largest city, Christie's office said in a statement on Monday.The incentives could reach $5 billion over the next decade, according to The Observer.The remaining tax breaks would come from a $1 billion city property tax subsidy and a wage tax waiver of $1 billion for Amazon employees over the next 20 years — a new offer that was announced this week.

Loot boxes in video games like Forza Motorsport 7 and Middle-earth: Shadow of War are raising a debate about business models in the gaming community, and some people are now trying to get their governments to do something about it.That has led Daniel Zeichner, a member of the British Parliament from Cambridge, to pose two questions asking what Secretary of State for digital, culture, media, and sport Karen Bradley will do to protect people from loot boxes.Both of Zeichner’s questions are online, and they come as the result of a conversation with concerned gamers.The first question asks what steps Bradley plans to take to “help protect vulnerable adults and children from illegal gambling, in-game gambling, and loot boxes within computer games.” The second question asks what the British government has determined about special rules on the Isle of Man that determine in-game items as having real-world value.GamesBeat has reached out to Zeichner for comment on this, and I’ll update this post with any statement from the MP.In a post on Reddit, user Artfunkel says that they met with Zeichner, who is their MP, to encourage the politician to bring up these questions.

Some users said the content from these accounts seemed like something their peers would share.“Blacktivist,” an account that supported causes in the black community and used hashtags such as BlackLivesMatter, frequently posted videos of police allegedly shooting unarmed black men.“Secured Borders” often railed against illegal immigration, publishing material such as a photoshopped image of a woman holding a sign that said “Give me more free shit!”Via several platforms—Facebook and its Messenger and Instagram services, as well as Twitter Inc. TWTR 0.98% and YouTube, part of Alphabet Inc.’s Google—470 Russia-backed Facebook accounts including Blacktivist and Secured Borders quietly infiltrated communities on social media.The issues they targeted spanned the U.S. political and social spectrum, including religion, race, immigration, gun rights and gay rights.Facebook said the accounts were created by Russian entities to exploit tensions among Americans and interfere with U.S. elections.

Granted if you’re in a gray cubicle farm—or, worse, a beige cubicle farm—you may not be on the bleeding, leading, or even dull but unrusted edge of technology so your mileage may vary.InfoWorld helps you navigate what’s running hot and what’s going cold.What’s clear is that modern development organizations—even ones that may think they’re a bit old-school—do not look like even those of a few years ago.After all, scrums and devops were space-alien concepts not that long ago.They represent the non-aspirational state of software development.They’re chatty, and now the chat is searchable.

Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet and former CEO of Google, is considered an authoritative source when it comes to the tech world.Last night, Schmidt stopped by TQ, the Amsterdam tech hub founded by TNW, to share his thoughts on entrepreneurship with a roomful of, well, entrepreneurs.TQ’s mission is to support early-stage startups in achieving exponential growth, working with corporate partners to provide its community with enriching events and state of the art facilities.The hub, which Schmidt describes as feeling “like Silicon Valley all in one room”, is part of the Google for Entrepreneurs international network, and its residents and members turned out in force to hear what Schmidt had to say about the future of work, AI, and getting enough sleep.Schmidt naturally spends a considerable amount of time travelling the world and meeting entrepreneurs from every corner of the globe.Has he noticed any differences between entrepreneurs in different parts of the world?

Categorize this under “one of the worst possible PR nightmares for a Google smart speaker.” According to Artem Russakovskii at Android Police, the Google Home Mini he was reviewing was randomly and near-constantly recording sounds in his home and transmitting them to Google.The company acknowledged the problem and is issuing a software update to resolve the issue, which appears to boil down to a failure of the touch sensor on the top.Smart speakers like the Google Home Mini are designed to only listen for a specific wake word — in this case it’s “Hey Google” or “Ok Google.” Only then do their microphones record what you’re saying it, transmit it to the cloud, and try to answer your question.But there is usually a way to just hit a button and ask the embedded assistant a question.That seems to be the rub (pardon the pun) with Russakovskii’s Mini: it thought that somebody was holding its finger down on the top and so was randomly activating and recording.The good news is that the lights turned on to indicate it was listening, but the bad news is that it didn’t make an audible tone, so it took a trip through the Home’s search history to discover the error.

Today, brands market and sell their products in an environment that is more competitive than ever.Consumers are subjected to so much marketing content that it is hard for any one brand to stand out, leaving them trying in vain to outshout their competitors.Products are so advanced that even the most basic models far exceed people’s needs, and innovations lead to, at best, short-term marginal share gain as they are quickly met by competitors.Perhaps the only truly sustainable competitive advantage remaining is having a deeper, better understanding of — and relationship with — the people who do, or may, buy your product.Successful brands will treat people as an audience whose protracted engagement must be cultivated, rather than imagining them exclusively as consumers whose immediate choices are to be influenced.One need only look at the relative valuations of Facebook and Twitter to understand the value of an engaged audience, and many brands are beginning to frame the challenge in this light.
