p Late last month, restaurant franchise Chipotle Mexican Grill revealed that it had suffered a security breach affecting its POS system.The company has released an update on that revelation, saying that ‘most’ of its stores in the US were affected by the malware.Chipotle says the investigation into the breach, which involved both law enforcement and security firms, has been completed.The data breach was first revealed on April 25, 2017, though details were slight.In an update, Chipotle has stated that the malware was operating from March 24 to April 18, and that it worked by searching for track data gathered from a bank card’s magnetic stripe.This data could include things like the cardholder’s name, the card’s number, the verification code, and expiration date — all things that can be used to jeopardize the bank account itself.
p Uber and Lyft are returning to Austin—the capital of Texas and home to the South by Southwest festival.The move comes one year after the ride-hailing services left the area over a driver-background check dispute with city regulators and voters.The two companies are coming back now because state lawmakers passed legislation, which Gov.Greg Abbott is expected to sign Monday, that removes a controversial requirement that prospective drivers have their fingerprints run through an FBI database that tracks people's criminal activity over the course of their lives.Uber and Lyft claimed that the check was too onerous and should be reserved for security sensitive personnel.The new legislation supersedes the city of Austin's regulations, paving the way for the companies' return to Austin possibly as early as this coming week.
p While a digital ad needs to be clear to make the sale, the digital ad industry has been racking up zillions of sales in ad placements while being as clear as a muddy pond.This week, the pond’s muddiness was confronted by major ad group Havas, which launched a platform that the company says is the first to offer full visibility into the programmatic digital ad system in real time.This comes on top of recent efforts at transparency-related solutions from Havas competitors Omnicom, WPP and Dentsu Aegis.Called the Client Trading Solution, the Havas platform is intended to let advertisers track their exact ad spending as well as the real-time performance.To find out if this new platform matters, we pinged some ad tech veterans.Jay Friedman, COO of programmatic media firm Goodway, doesn’t think this Havas offering will make much of a difference — and he doesn’t think the key problem is transparency.

p Is link building still relevant to SEO and content marketing?You might think link building is in the same group as spam, content duplication, and methods to get your website linked wherever you can, even if it's from a shady ad-filled blog.But link building doesn't have to be this way, and by itself, it's a great way to develop higher search engine rankings and find new customers.But you have to approach link building in the right way, finding new places to share your links and regularly removing old sources you don't need.How many links you have to your pages directly impacts where search engines rank you.Part of the method search engines use to determine a page's quality is examining the links that go back to that page.

p The global cyber attack that hit 150 countries is "highly likely" to have been perpetrated by hackers in North Korea, cyber security researchers have said.Researchers at Symantec have found compelling evidence linking the ransomware attack to hackers associated with North Korea called the Lazarus Group.The findings confirm reports in the immediate aftermath of the attack, which affected more than 300,000 machines at organisations including the NHS, Nissan and Telefonica, that attackers linked to North Korea were to blame.The experts have connected the source of WannaCry with the computers behind the Sony Pictures Entertainment hack in 2014.The same internet connection used to destroy files associated with The Interview was used to install an early version of WannaCry, Symantec said.Symantec has previously linked Lazarus to the Swift banking hack that let hackers steal $81 million from Bangladesh's central bank last year.

p Samsung Pay first arrived back in August 2015 when it launched in Korea.A US launch followed a month later, and now, nearly two years later, it's finally arrived in the UK.There are a few caveats though.The main one to note is that Samsung Pay will not utilise the Magnetic Secure Transmission feature that's available in the US.For the uninitiated, that's the feature that allows Samsung Pay users to pay contactlessly on card readers that do not have NFC - by wirelessly communication with the magnetic strip reader.Because contactless is a lot more widespread here than in the US, Samsung told TechRadar that it didn't think it was worth including over here.

There’s nothing special, nothing out of the ordinary that will happen that’s going to make a great image.”Official photos by White House photographer Shealah Craighead are equally low energy, and any candid photographs tend to be snapped by smartphone-wielding staffers.And it speaks to a great irony of the Trump Administration: For a man who understands the power of images to build a brand, Trump has shown remarkably little interest in using photography to shape the narrative of his presidency and his place in history.Whatever the case, Trump—a man who is very much of the moment—seems to view photographs as self-serving opportunities to shine, not documents preserving history for future generations.“The quality of what history will judge, and the way people will perceive your agenda and your accomplishments, are tied directly to production and the quality of the photographs.”Reagan’s chief of staff Michael Deaver knew this when he laid the groundwork for the job, meticulously staging photo-ops for a president with an innate understanding of visuals and storytelling.

p There have been plenty of stories about Pokémon Go fans playing the game in locations that should probably be avoided, but they're nothing compared to the situation of one Russian blogger, who has just been given a three-and-a-half-year suspended sentence for videoing himself playing the AR title in a church.22-year-old Ruslan Sokolovsky, from the Ural Mountain city of Yekaterinburg, was found guilty of insulting religious believers and inciting hatred by the local court.Back in 2016, he posted footage of himself playing Pokémon Go in the city’s Church of All Saints - built in remembrance of Tsar Nicholas II and his family.Russian authorities said it showed a “disrespect for society.”According to Russian news agency TASS, the judge said: “In accordance with the expert evaluation, the court found blogger Sokolovsky guilty of inciting hatred, violating religious feelings and illegal possession of special technical means - a pen with a video camera.” Sokolovsky said the pen wasn’t his, and that it contained a light bulb, not a camera.Sokolovsky posted the video in response to the Russain government’s crackdown on people deemed to have committed acts that offend religious sensibilities.
A new laser printer can already do that by etching microscopic patterns onto sheets of plastic.Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark have taken inspiration from creatures like butterflies and peacocks, whose wings and feathers create bright, iridescent colours not through light-absorbing pigments, but by bending and scattering light at the molecular level, creating what’s known as structural colour.The new printing method the team has developed starts with sheets of plastic covered in thousands of microscopic pillars spaced roughly 200 nanometers apart.To get those tiny plastic pillars to produce colour, or at least appear to, they’re first covered with a thin layer of germanium—a shiny, greyish-white metalloid material.An ultra-fine laser blasts the germanium until it melts onto each pillar, strategically changing their shape and thickness.This is then followed by a protective coating that helps preserves the shape and structure of all those tiny pillars.
