Download Windows 10 Build 10061 ISO

Apr 23, 2015 - 11:06 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft today released a new Technical Preview build for PCs Ė 10061. This build will be available to the Fast ring, and will be delivered via Windows Update. If you installed the leaked Windows 10 Build 10056 or if you want to upgrade directly to Windows 10 Build 10061, you need an ISO file. As we all know, Microsoft wonít be releasing ISOs for builds released on Fast ring and 10061 is no exception.

However, we can create our own ISO using the ESD files downloaded from Windows update. Someone has already created an Windows 10 Build 10061 x64 bit English ISO. Download ISO of Windows 10 Build 10061 here.

If you donít trust these sources and want to create ISO by yourself, download ESD here.

Samsung S5 fingerprint flaw exposed

Apr 23, 2015 - 10:48 PM - by Reverend
Hackers can take copies of fingerprints used to unlock the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, claim security researchers.

A flaw in Android makes it possible to steal the personal information so it can be used elsewhere, said the experts from security firm FireEye.

Other Android-based phones that also use fingerprint ID systems could also be vulnerable, they said.

Samsung said it took security "very seriously" and was investigating the researchers' findings.

Fingerprint ID systems are being used more and more in smartphones to unlock the devices or as a way to check who is authorising a transaction. Paypal and Apple already accept fingerprints as an ID check and a growing roster of firms that are members of the Fido Alliance are keen to use them in the same way to remove the need for passwords.

Android phones typically store sensitive data such as fingerprint information in a walled-off area of memory known as the Trusted Zone.

However, Yulong Zhang and Tao Wei found it was possible to grab identification data before it is locked away in the secure area. This method of stealing data was available on all phones running version 5.0 or older versions of Android provided the attacker got high level access to a phone.

They also found that on Samsung Galaxy S5 phones, attackers did not need this deep access to a phone. Instead, they said, just getting access to the gadget's memory could reveal finger scan data.

Using this information an attacker could make a fake lock screen that makes victims believe they are swiping to unlock a phone when they are actually authorising a payment.

In addition, they found, it was possible for attackers to upload their own fingerprints as devices did not keep good records of how many prints were being used on each device.

Mr Zhang and Mr Wei are due to present their findings at the... [Read More]

Credit card terminals have used same password since 1990s

Apr 23, 2015 - 10:45 PM - by Reverend
While retailers battle breaches that have resulted in tens of millions of credit card numbers stolen, word comes from the RSA Conference in San Francisco that a major vendor of payment terminals has been shipping devices for over two decades with the same default password.

The vendor wasn't named by the researchers, David Byrne and Charles Henderson, but they did disclose the password: 166816.

A Google search reveals that's the default password for several models of credit card terminal sold by Verifone, a Silicon Valley-based vendor that says it connects 27 million payment devices and has operations in 150 countries.

Verifone didn't immediately comment on the claim.

The researchers said that the password remains in use on nine out of ten terminals they see from the vendor, in part because customers mistakenly assume it is unique to them.

The RSA Conference is a major annual event for the security industry and the comments of the two researchers were reported by The Register and SC Magazine.

Such conferences are often used to highlight poor security practices or disclose how hackers are targeting systems. The hope is that by making such information more widely known, companies and users will be more alert to cybersecurity and change bad habits.

Apple Watch goes on sale worldwide amid supply shortage

Apr 23, 2015 - 10:42 PM - by Reverend
The Apple Watch goes on sale around the world on Friday, the final stage of a protracted launch of Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook's first new product, capping months of publicity and a frenetic two weeks of pre-orders.

Buyers can take the smart watch home from a handful of upscale boutiques and department stores, such as The Corner in Berlin, Maxfield in Los Angeles and Dover Street Market in Tokyo and London, which Apple courted to help position the watch as a fashion item.

But the watch will not be sold at Apple stores on Friday. The company is directing people to order online, which should prevent the lines around stores that generally greet new iPhone and iPad launches.

The lack of queues at Apple stores will make it hard to judge popular demand for the Apple Watch, which comes in 38 variations with prices ranging from $349 for the Sport version to $10,000 and more for the gold Edition.

Apple has not released any numbers since it opened for pre-orders on April 10, but many buyers were told their watches would not arrive for a month or more as supply appeared to dry up.

Wall Street estimates of Apple Watch sales vary widely. FBR Capital Markets analyst Daniel Ives raised his sales estimate this week to 20 million watches from 17 million, based in part on online order backlogs.

"There was a question over whether the trajectory and demand for wearables in the Apple ecosystem was there and real," said Ives. "But it's a resounding yes."

Apple itself said on Wednesday that some customers will get watches faster than promised.

"Our team is working to fill orders as quickly as possible based on the available supply and the order in which they were received," Apple said in a statement.

The Cupertino, California company previously predicted that demand would exceed supply at product launch.

Windows 10 to arrive in late July

Apr 21, 2015 - 9:34 PM - by Reverend
Windows 10 is set to be released to the masses at the end of July, based on comments by the chief executive of AMD.

Lisa Su was speaking on an earnings call to discuss AMD's first-quarter financials for 2015 and appeared accidentally to reveal the date in response to a question about the firm's guidance for the second quarter.

"With the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up," she said.

It is unlikely that Su was meant to reveal the date as Microsoft has previously given a date for Windows 10 only as in the "summer". This would make Su's date of late July appear accurate.

Windows 10 will launch in 190 countries and 111 languages. Microsoft may issue more information on the expected launch date at its Build conference next week in San Francisco.

Microsoft has started preparing its user base for the Windows 10 arrival. A recent patch for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 added the ability to notify users when Windows 10 is available.

Windows 10 has already been seen as a marked improvement on the current Windows 8 operating system, by moving away from the tile interface that failed to impress and returning to the more familiar desktop setup known to millions.

Microsoft will hope that this entices people to upgrade or buy new systems, as the ancient Windows XP operating system still boasts a high user base, despite support for the platform ending over a year ago.

Twitter Further Cracks Down on Abusers

Apr 21, 2015 - 9:28 PM - by Reverend
The microblogging service on Tuesday announced it has extended its violent threats policy to explicitly prohibit "threats of violence against others or promot[ing] violence against others." Previously, the prohibition was limited to "direct, specific threats of violence against others."

"Our previous policy was unduly narrow and limited our ability to act on certain kinds of threatening behavior," Twitter's Director of Product Management, Shreyas Doshi, wrote in a blog post. "The updated language better describes the range of prohibited content and our intention to act when users step over the line into abuse."

Twitter is also beefing up its efforts on the enforcement side. From now on, the company's support team will be able to lock users out of their accounts for specific periods of time. Those who get locked out may be asked to complete additional tasks to resume using Twitter, like verify their phone number and delete offending tweets.

"This option gives us leverage in a variety of contexts, particularly where multiple users begin harassing a particular person or group of people," Doshi wrote.

Finally, Twitter has also begun testing a new feature designed to help limit the reach of abusive tweets. The feature takes into account a range of signals that frequently correlate with abuse ó such as the age of the account itself, and the similarity of a tweet to other content that has been flagged as abusive in the past.

"It will not affect your ability to see content that you've explicitly sought out, such as Tweets from accounts you follow, but instead is designed to help us limit the potential harm of abusive content," Doshi wrote. "This feature does not take into account whether the content posted or followed by a user is controversial or unpopular."

The changes come after Twitter CEO Dick Costolo earlier... [Read More]

Google now lets you download entire search history

Apr 21, 2015 - 9:26 PM - by Reverend
Google will now let you download and export your entire search history. (Tweet This)

The search giant already allowed users to view their history, but now they can download their entire history in just a few simple steps.

As first noticed by the unofficial Google Operating System blog and pointed out by VentureBeat, users just need to go to their Google Account history and then hit the gear icon in the upper right corner and hit "download."

A user's search history will only appear for the time that they have enabled the Web history setting.

Once a user opts to download their history, a window appears warning the user not to download the archive on a public computer. It also states that Google will email the user once the archive is ready.

The email displays the search history as JSON files organized chronologically by quarter. These can be downloaded as zip files to a desktop.

Since 2011, Google has offered a service called "Takeout," which enables users to move certain data out of Google, including Gmail, Google +, YouTube and Google Calendar. This is part of an effort to give users a sense of greater control over their data.

Last week, Google also enabled a new feature that allows Android users to find their phones by simply typing "Find my phone" into their Chrome browser. As long as the Android user has the phone logged into a Google account, users can track their device's location.
