New Wolfenstein II Gameplay Trailer - [gaming]
05:18 PM EDT - Sep,19 2017 - post a comment

Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames have released a new gameplay trailer for the highly anticipated first-person shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. This new trailer is entitled "No More Nazis" and gives us perhaps our best - and bloodiest - look at the combat of Wolfenstein II since it was revealed this summer at E3 2017. If you like your trailers packed full of Nazi headshots, explosions, and sex, then this new gameplay video will be right up your alley. Wolfenstein II is out next month on October 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC with a version coming to Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018

Update Lets Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note8 Owners Disable Bixby Home Button - [mobile]
04:05 PM EDT - Sep,19 2017 - post a comment

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note8 smartphones can now modify the behavior of their handset's dedicated Bixby button. The hardware key, located on the left edge of the phone, automatically calls up Bixby Home with a short press or Bixby Voice with a long press. A new software update that recently hit S8, S8+, and Note8 phones adds a toggle for controlling the Bixby button. Owners of these phones can opt to disable the short press function, which launches Bixby Home. This prevents accidental presses from opening the app. A long press still calls up Bixby Voice. The Bixby button has been a point of contention with some S8, S8+, and Note8 owners who'd prefer the button handled other tasks. The update from Samsung also makes a few performance tweaks.

Apple Releases iOS 11 for iPhones and iPads - [briefly]
04:04 PM EDT - Sep,19 2017 - post a comment

Apple today made new system software available to its smartphones and tablets. iPhone and iPad owners can download iOS 11, which introduces new lock screen behaviors, new control center behaviors, as well as new features for the camera, messages, maps and more. For the first time, iPhone owners will be able to use augmented reality thanks to the addition of ARKit and apps in the App Store. iOS 11 is free to download. Apple suggests users back up their devices before updating. iOS 11 is compatible with the iPhone 5SE, iPhone 6/6 Plus, 6s/6s Plus, and 7/7s Plus.

According to Apple, the peer-to-peer mobile payment function is "coming this fall with an update to iOS 11 and watchOS 4." Once installed, Apple Pay users will be able to send and receive money from friends and family quickly, easily, and securely. Payments will work through the Messages app and/or Siri. The money is funneled into the Apple Pay Cash card, which is found in Apple Wallet. The funds can be used instantly to pay for goods and services through any credit or debit card stored in Apple Wallet. Apple has held back other features in previous iOS launches so the news that Apple Pay will arrive later than iOS 11 itself isn't uncommon

Apple Releases WatchOS 4.0 for the Apple Watch - [briefly]
04:04 PM EDT - Sep,19 2017 - post a comment

Apple today made watchOS 4.0 available to the Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 wearables. The platform prioritizes the heart rate monitor. Apple Watches will now notify people when it senses a high heart rate if owners are not active. The new software can also look for atrial fibrillation and provide health alerts when necessary. WatchOS 4.0 includes the new Siri watch face that contains the owner's personalized data, such as commute times, calendar appointments, reminders, photo memories, weather updates, and more. The kaleidoscope watch face changes over time, and a wider selection of Disney characters are being added as watch faces. Activity notifications will be more personalized, including goal achievements. Apple says the new workout app makes it quicker to start workouts, such as swims, hikes, and runs. WatchOS 4.0 is more compatible with gym equipment for counting reps. The music player now supports multiple playlists and a wider selection of album art for workouts when using Apple EarPods. Moreover, music functionality will be much more accessible within workout apps. Other features include a new flashlight, a blinking light for nighttime visibility, and support for other sensors, such as glucose monitors. WatchOS 4.0 is free to download from Apple.

The iPhone X Needs a $25 USB Type-C Cable to Fast Charge - [mobile]
06:42 AM EDT - Sep,18 2017 - post a comment

While the iPhone X is already an expensive device, prospective owners will have to pay even more for fast charging: you'll need to spend at least $74 on a special charger and a USB Type-C Lightning cable for the privilege. It all comes down to the fact that Apple's Lightning protocol doesn't support the wattage, voltage, and amperage needed to enable true fast charging when it's connected to a standard USB Type-A port on the other end of the cable.
Because the Lightning cables that Apple includes in the box with every iPhone have a USB Type-A connector on the end that plugs into the charger, they don't possess the pins needed to facilitate USB Power Delivery. Namely, the two channel configuration pins, CC1 and CC2. This is why the new iPhone models need a special cable -- one that uses USB Type-C on the charger side -- to take advantage of USB-PD 2.0 and enable fast charging.

Rocket Bicycle World Record ǀ 333 km/h (207 mph) - [off-topic]
04:24 AM EDT - Sep,17 2017 - post a comment

On November 7th of 2014, on the Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in South of France, I have reached a speed of 333 km/h on a rocket-propelled bicycle, after only 4.8 seconds of acceleration. A velocity of more than 300 km/h on a skinny and completely stripped bicycle, this is amazing, and a bit crazy! Who thought that one day a daredevil on a bicycle, with a rocket under the saddle, could travel the quarter mile in less than 7 seconds?

Verizon Is Disconnecting 8,500 Leechers - [internet]
04:41 PM EDT - Sep,16 2017 - post a comment

Verizon is booting customers over data use, including some on "unlimited" plans: the carrier has confirmed that it's disconnecting 8,500 customers in rural areas, thanks to excessive domestic data roaming on Verizon partner networks. It pays roaming fees to the partner networks for Verizon customers to use those networks, and in some cases, those fees are getting excessive.

Bashware Security Software Bypass Attack - [security]
02:51 PM EDT - Sep,16 2017 - post a comment

A New Attacking Technique called 'Bashware' can able to Bypass all Windows Based Security Software solutions by abusing the New Windows 10 Future called Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and Injecting the Backdoor. WSL is Compatibility Layer for running Linux binary executable on Windows 10 based Computers that helps to Enable the bash terminal available for Windows OS users. This Flow can able to allow any Malware's to bypass the Advanced security solutions, Next Generation Anti Virus software, inspection tools, Anti-Ransomware solutions.

Presently Available security software Futures is not that much Effectively Monitoring the processes of Linux Executable's running on Windows OS. This will leads to open a backdoor to the hackers and run their Malicious code by abusing the WSL futures which allow hiding from the current intelligence that is given by the security vendors.

Bashware Technique Mainly abusing the 'Netcat' utility Futures that is used for reading and writing to network connections using TCP or UDP. Netcat has some list of Futures including port scanning, transferring files, and port listening, and also it can be used as a backdoor. In some case, Security Software like Anti-Virus is not allowed the Netcat Futures to get Executed.

By Default, 1337 port is closed because it leads to create a Backdoor and allow the Trojan services to run on the Windows Computers. Once Bashware Execute the Malware, then it will Bypass all the security solutions and it will later Enable the WSL Future. End of the Execution will Successfully open the Netcat Listener port(1337) that will helps to Attackers to Open a Backdoor. Windows Inspection Tools such as Task Manager will not Identify the Malicious Payload Process. Instead of that, it can only show the WSL Loader process.
