Mac Developer: Smartphone app that allows credit card skimming ‘real risk’ to consumers: experts - National | Globalnews.ca

Smartphone app that allows credit card skimming ‘real risk’ to consumers: experts - National | Globalnews.ca: "A smartphone app, which allows the user to read credit card information through wallets and purses, is cause for concern amongst consumers that carry credit cards with radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, according to experts.

The free app, available on the Samsung Galaxy S3 through the Google Play store, allows the phone to read the RFID chip on a credit card, picking up the cardholder’s name, credit card number and expiry date, according to a CBC investigation."

Way to go global payment processing plutocracy!

Mac Developer: More Spectre-style chip flaws discovered in Intel processors

More Spectre-style chip flaws discovered in Intel processors: "The eighth vulnerability is apparently an exception, potentially posing a greater threat than Spectre itself, as it could allow an attacker to launch an exploit in a virtual machine (VM) as a way to attack the host system. Largely affecting enterprise, as well as some individual users who operate VMs privately, the vulnerability could also be used to attack other VM instances on the same server, and due to Intel's Software Guard Extensions (SGX) not being "Spectre-safe," it could also intercept passwords and keys transmitted between VM instances. "

"Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM."

Mac Developer: Drive-by Rowhammer attack uses GPU to compromise an Android phone | Ars Technica

Drive-by Rowhammer attack uses GPU to compromise an Android phone | Ars Technica: "Over the past few years, there has been a steady evolution in Rowhammer, the once largely theoretical attack that exploits physical defects in memory chips to tamper with the security of the devices they run on. On Thursday, researchers are unveiling the most practical demonstration yet of Rowhammer's power and reach: an exploit that remotely executes malicious code on Android phones by harnessing their graphical processors."

Yo! Hammer! Can't touch this...
