11/27/2014 05:10 PM fixes web application vulnerabilities

The Weather Channel has fixed a common web application security problem on its website that made nearly all links vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Wang Jin, a doctoral student at the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, found more than 75 percent of the webpages on were vulnerable.

Attackers just need to add script at the end of The Weather Channels URLs, Wang wrote. Then the scripts will be executed.

Wang posted his findings on the Full Disclosure forum, writing that the issues have been fixed. He wrote that he tested tens of thousands of links on using a custom tool and posted a video illustrating an attack.

Early version of new POS malware family spotted

A security researcher came across what appears to be a new family of point-of-sale malware that few antivirus programs were detecting.

Nick Hoffman, a reverse engineer, wrote the Getmypass malware shares traits that are similar to other so-called RAM scrapers, which collect unencrypted payment card data held in a payment systems memory.

That type of malware has been responsible for large payment card breaches at Target, Neiman Marcus and others, capitalizing on a common weakness in systems that experts say can be fixed with more robust encryption of card details.

Report: Microsoft will unveil Windows 10's new consumer features in January

Microsoft will take its Windows 10 message of "much better this time, really" straight to the people in January. Late that month, according to The Verge, Microsoft will hold an event to show off the consumer-oriented features in the upcoming major revision of its Windows operating system.

Microsoft has a lot riding on Windows 10, which is currently in preview. Windows 8's shocking, take-it-or-leave-it changes caused many users to, well, leave Windows 8 (or not upgrade from prior versions). Windows 10, as far as we've seen in its beta iterations, is blending Windows 7 and Windows 8 to ease the experience for upgrading users.

Syrian Electronic Army posts hacking message on several news sites

A hacker group called the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) scared visitors to several news websites on Thursday by posting rogue pop-up messages saying theyd been hacked.

According to reports from users on Twitter the affected sites included those of CNBC, Forbes, the Chicago Tribune, OK magazine, the Evening Standard, PCWorld, The Daily Telegraph and The Independent.

Not all visitors to those sites have seen the pop-up messages, which read Youve been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) and in many cases the incident was reported by mobile users.

SEA does not appear to have actually hacked the affected websites directly, but instead pulled off the attack through Gigya, a customer identity management platform used by a large number of brands. The group posted a screen shot on Twitter from inside the control panel for the domain at GoDaddy, suggesting that they had control over the account.

Fastest LTE speed will be out of reach for most users

LTEs theoretical maximum download speed will increase to 450 Mbps next yearbut the upgrade will be out of reach for most users, as many mobile operators simply dont have enough radio spectrum.

The broadband speed users get depends on a myriad of different factors, but in the network it all starts with the amount of spectrum their operator uses. Future increases will be fueled by a technology called carrier aggregation, which lets operators treat up to three radio channels in different frequency bands as if they were one.

This month, chip maker Qualcomm and network equipment manufacturer Ericsson have been doing their best to let the world know speeds at up to 450 Mbps will be possible next year, with product launches, interoperability tests and a demo with Australian network operator Telstra.

EU net neutrality discussions to continue into the next year

The European Unions net neutrality legislation isnt dead yet: EU telecommunications ministers discussing the issue Thursday delayed a decision on the proposed law until next year.

Thursdays meeting of the Council of the EU discussed what to do with a proposal from the European Commission and the European Parliament to enshrine net neutrality in EU law. The Parliament is aiming for a strict form of net neutrality that treats all Internet traffic equally, without discrimination, restriction or interference, a position Members of the European Parliament confirmed in a resolution adopted earlier Thursday.

Over 23,000 Web servers infected with CryptoPHP backdoor

Over 23,000 Web servers were infected with a backdoor called CryptoPHP thats bundled with pirated themes and plug-ins for popular content management systems.

CryptoPHP is a malicious script that provides remote attackers with the ability to execute rogue code on Web servers and to inject malicious content into websites that are hosted on them.

According to Dutch security firm Fox-IT, which published a report about the threat last week, the backdoor is used primarily for black hat search engine optimization (BHSEO), an operation that involves injecting rogue keywords and pages into compromised sites to hijack their search engine rankings and push malicious content higher up in search results.

Personalize the Windows Explorer Navigation Bar

Windows Explorer (AKA File Explorer) offers a Navigation Bar on the left to help you select folders. Mary Hall asked how to customize it.

The Explorer Navigation Bar provides a map to the drives and folders on or accessible to your computer. Two of the sections, Favorites and Libraries, are easily configurable. The other sections are not configurable for a good reason. If you want to add a drive to the Navigation Bar, you need to add that drive from your PC (which adds it to the Navigation Bar automatically).

A quick note on the name: Microsoft has called its file manager Windows Explorer since Windows 95. With Windows 8, they renamed it File Explorera good change in my opinion. For this article, Ill just call it Explorer.

Panasonic opens smart town targeting zero-emission houses

As utopias go, Panasonics new smart town works if youre keen to be green and dont mind a heavy corporate presence.

On Thursday, the electronics maker inaugurated the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (SST), a subdivision southwest of Tokyo focused on solar power and other environmentally friendly technologies.

The communitys goals include a 70 percent cut to CO2 emissions compared to 1990 levels, reducing water use by 30 percent compared to 2006 and achieving 30 percent renewable energy usage.

The town is built on a 19-hectare plot along Kanagawa Prefectures Shonan coast that once hosted a Panasonic factory for TVs and refrigerators. Fronted by a 400-meter-long series of solar panels along a thoroughfare, it now consists of rows of new, Western-style houses, each with rooftop solar panels, as well as a posh bookstore in a lavish community center. A public square centers on a giant sundial, a symbol of its aspirations.

Siemens patches critical SCADA flaws likely exploited in recent attacks

Siemens released security updates for several of its SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) products for industrial environments, in order to fix critical vulnerabilities that may have been exploited in recent attacks.

One of the vulnerabilities allows unauthenticated attackers to remotely execute arbitrary code on a Siemens SIMATIC WinCC SCADA server by sending specially crafted packets to it. The flaw received the maximum severity score of 10 in the Common Vulnerability Scoring System and can lead to a full system compromise.

The other vulnerability can also be exploited by unauthenticated attackers by sending specially crafted packets, but to extract arbitrary files from the WinCC server. The flaw has a CVSS score of 7.8.

European Parliament calls on Commission to consider breaking up Google

In a move widely seen as targeting Google, European Union legislators have called on antitrust regulators to consider unbundling search engines from other commercial services as a way of maintaining competition in the search market.

While the non-binding resolution adopted by the European Parliament on Thursday didnt mention Google, the company is the obvious target, with about 90 percent of the European search market.

The E.U.s executive arm, the European Commission, has been conducting an antitrust investigation into Google since 2010, examining the companys promotion of its own services in search results among other things, but has proven reluctant to enforce penalties and has struggled to reach a settlement with the company.

Black Friday deals: 10 tech doorbusters worth fighting the crowds
Digging for true gold, not fool's gold
black friday shopping

Black Friday may have a reputation for ridiculously low sale prices, but truth be told, its probably the worst day to be a shopper. Not only are the crowds out of control, but retailers inch their prices up before the event just to have a seemingly crazy sale price a few weeks later. PC makers will sometimes work with retailers on exclusive holiday models that are just a little bit different than the models you usually seemaking it harder to comparison-shop.

Close shaves between aircraft and drones on the upswing

Near misses between drones and aircraft are on the increase, with pilots of airplanes sometimes having to take evasive action, according to data released by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to some news outlets.

Pilots and controllers have reported to the agency about 150 incidents this year of drones flying close to aircraft or airports, with a surge in such incidents in recent months, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The disclosure by the FAA comes at a time when it is under pressure to allow drones, known in FAA jargon as unmanned aircraft systems, to be used for commercial purposes., for example, has said it is testing the use of drones for package deliveries.

Obama signs legislation allowing regulatory e-labels for smartphones, wearables

U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law Wednesday the E-Label Act that will make it easier for vendors to display regulatory approvals electronically rather than etch them physically on the exterior of the device.

Devices that use radio frequency have to be authorized by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission before they can be marketed or sold in the U.S.

The E-Label Act, passed by both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, aimed to allow manufacturers to display the statutory FCC label digitally on the screen of the device, which would be easier for makers of smartphones and wearables that are having much less free space on the outside of the devices.

These devices can be used to open Word documents, browse the Web, watch movies and play Xbox games. The devices also have Skype for videoconferencing and Internet Explorer 11.
