Top Ten Cybersecurity Predictions For 2019
1. Increase in crime, espionage and sabotage by rogue nation-states With the ongoing failure of significant national, international or UN level response and repercussion, nation-state sponsored espionage, cyber-crime and sabotage will continue to expand. Clearly, most organisations are simply not structured to defend against such attacks, which will succeed in penetrating defences. Cybersecurity teams will need …

Battlefield 1 Players Stop Fighting to Mark 100th Anniversary of the End of WWI
A unique event took place in Battlefield 1 as players enforced, albeit for a very short while, a truce in commemoration of the 100 Year Anniversary of the end of First World War. Trump missed the commemoration of fallen soldiers in France and invoked the rain as the main reason. It turns out that random people gathered on Battlefield 1 server can show more patriotism than a US president in office. Since this is a unique event and not scripted in any way into the game, the players just had to stop fighting for a short while, in the 11th hour, on November 11th. Of course, there is always someone ready to ruin such a momentous event. But the important thing is that most people actually went for it. Electronic Arts didn’t anticipate Everyone could observe the anniversary of the 100 Year Anniversary of the end of first World War, on November 11th. But it turns out that Electronic Arts didn’t have...
Amazfit Bip Review - Second-Banana Apple Watch
Smartwatches have evolved substantially in the last few years, and despite the criticism this new industry had to deal with when the first models hit the shelves, more and more people discover the advantages of having a smart device on their wrist. Smartwatches are everywhere you look these days. I’m wearing one right now as I’m writing this review, most of my colleagues have one, and sales are continuously going up every year as further companies enter the market. One of the most recent players in the smartwatch battle is Amazfit, a brand that doesn’t say much too many, but which comes with products that are impressive in one key regard: the price. Smartwatches sold under the Amazfit brand are incredibly affordable, with devices that promise no compromises available for less than $100. This is surprising, to say the least, especially because the top smartwatches right now cost at least a couple hundred dollars. First of all, who is Amazfit? In just a few words, ...
Stan Lee, Marvel Comics' Real-Life Superhero, Dies at 95
Stan Lee, who wrote and published a comic book legacy that spans from the Depression Era to the present day, who created Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk and Thor, has died. He was 95. Lee was born Stanley Martin Lieber in New York City in 1922, the son of Romanian Jewish immigrants, and at the age of 17, he began work as an assistant at Timely Comics, the company that would become Marvel Comics. Filling inkwells and fetching lunch, Lee's career began just in time for Superman's 1930s debut in Action Comics #1, kicking off the history of superhero comics. From a report: Lee, who began in the business in 1939 and created or co-created Black Panther, Spider-Man, X-Men, The Mighty Thor, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, Ant-Man and other characters, died early Monday morning in Los Angeles, a source told The Hollywood Reporter. (Joan Celia Lee, Stan's daughter, confirmed the news to TMZ.) Lee's final few years were tumultuous. [...] On his own and through his work with frequent artist-writer collaborators Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and others, Lee catapulted Marvel from a tiny venture into the world's No. 1 publisher of comic books and later a multimedia giant. In 2009, the Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion, and most of the top-grossing superhero films of all time -- led by The Avengers' $1.52 billion worldwide take in 2012 -- featured Marvel characters. An exchange from one of Stan Lee's last interviews, which appeared last month: Interviewer: Do you feel like your legacy is secure? Stan Lee: Absolutely. Interviewer: What's on your wish list? Stan Lee: That I leave everyone happy when I leave. Interviewer: You won't leave anyone happy. Stan Lee: Well, I don't mean happy that I left. Happy that I took the right path. Interviewer: You always do, pop. It was just the people around you. It was never you. You were always the good guy, and there were just creeps around you, and it was this town. Never you.

The White Company, A New State-Sponsored APT Discovered by Cylance
The Cylance Threat Intelligence Team unearthed a new cyber-espionage group using sophisticated tools and techniques to evade detection during a large-scale and year-long espionage campaign targeting the Pakistani military and government. The APT was dubbed "The White Company in acknowledgment of the many elaborate measures the organization takes to whitewash all signs of its activity and evade attribution" and, according to Cylance, it shows all the signs of being an advanced persistent threat group sponsored by a nation-state. Cylance's threat research team observed The White Company APT during a series of covert operations they named "Operation Shaheen," and it has shown during their research that it has "access to zero-day exploits and exploit developers." Moreover, just as in the case of other similarly complex threat operations, The...
Firefox Debuts Price Wise, an Experimental Price-Tracking Feature To Help Users Score Top Shopping Deals
The Firefox Test Pilot team on Monday rolled out two new experimental features, one of which is aimed to make this year's holiday shopping a bit easier on your wallet. It's called Price Wise, and it's an online shopping comparison tool that lets you add items from across several retailers to a Price Watcher list. From a report: When a price drops, a notification is automatically sent to your browser, and you can click regardless of what web page you are currently on. For now, Price Wise tracks just five retailers -- Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Walmart, and the Home Depot -- but the company said it's planning on expanding to cover more outlets in the future. Elsewhere, Mozilla is also rolling out a new feature called Email Tabs as part of its early adopter program. While Mozilla already offers a service for bookmarking content to read later via Pocket, Email Tabs enables users to choose multiple tabs and send links to one or more of them to their Gmail address. There are a number of options here. Users can choose to send links with screenshots, just links, or links with full articles. Price Wise is only available to users in the U.S. for now.

Are there any newsworthy security incidents in coworking spaces?
If this is the wrong place to ask, please point me in the right right direction.
I'm looking for news articles on security incidents in coworking spaces. I'm doing some research on the risks associated with these places and I'm looking for real world incidents to drive the point home. Either my search terms aren't what they should be or things aren't bubbling up to news outlets or those leasing a spot at coworking spaces haven't come forward for whatever reason or something just hasn't happened yet(which I would find unlikely). I've read anecdotal stories, but I don't know if that would have as much weight as, for sake of argument, something reported by Wired, or a major media network, or "newspaper" (local, regional, or national).
US Overtakes China in Top Supercomputer List
China has been pushed into third place on a list of the world's most powerful supercomputers. From a report: The latest list by Top 500, published twice a year, puts two US machines -- Summit and Sierra -- in the top two places. The US has five entries in the top 10, with other entries from Switzerland, Germany and Japan. However, overall China has 227 machines in the top 500, while the US has 109. Summit can process 200,000 trillion calculations per second. Both Summit and Sierra were built by the tech giant IBM. China's Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer, which this time last year was the world's most powerful machine, is now ranked at number three, while the country also has the fourth spot in the list.

Microsoft Buys Obsidian Entertainment and inXile
Obsidian Entertainment and inXile, two gaming studios known for their masterful RPGs, have been bought by Microsoft. It’s been a while since we’ve seen studios being bought by big companies. It looks like Obsidian Entertainment and inXile, the two victims, as the community undoubtedly considers them, have found a new home with Microsoft. In case you didn’t already know, Obsidian Entertainment made games such as Neverwinter Nights 2, The Knights of the Old Republic, Fallout: New Vegas, and Pillars of Eternity. On the other hand, inXile is known for The Bard's Tale, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and Wasteland 2. Usually, it’s not difficult to anticipate what’s going to happen with a gaming studio, based on who’s buying it. If it the buyers were Electronic Arts or Ubisoft, we would guess that new games coming from these studious are about to get some microtransactions. But we can also take a look at what happened with other studios Microsoft bought over the years. Mic...

Trojanized Android App Found on Google Play with More Than 5,000 Installs
An Android call recording application with hidden malicious code designed as a malware dropper was found by malware researcher Lukas Stefanko in the Google Play store. At the moment Stefanko discovered the "Simple Call Recorder" application published by FreshApps Group already had over 5,000 installs and it was available on Google Play for since November 30, 2017. Although Simple Call Recorder was a functional call recorder it also had another hidden purpose which " was to download an additional app and trick the user into installing it as Flash Player Update," according to Stefanko. The malicious app tries to compromise the device it is installed on by decrypting a binary file which it loads from its assets, dynamically loading it, and subsequently asking the user to install a fake flash updater from http:/...
Researchers Say Social Media Can Cause Depression
Spending too much time on "social media" sites like Facebook is making people more than just miserable. It may also be making them depressed. From a report: A new study conducted by psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania has shown -- for the first time -- a causal link between time spent on social media and depression and loneliness, the researchers said. It concluded that those who drastically cut back their use of sites like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat often saw a marked improvement in their mood and in how they felt about their lives. "It was striking," says Melissa Hunt, psychology professor at University of Pennsylvania, who led the study. "What we found over the course of three weeks was that rates of depression and loneliness went down significantly for people who limited their (social media) use." Many of those who began the study with moderate clinical depression finished just a few weeks later with very mild symptoms, she says. The study, "No More FOMO: Limiting Social Media Decreases Loneliness and Depression," was conducted by Melissa Hunt, Rachel Marx, Courtney Lipson and Jordyn Young, is being published by the peer-reviewed Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology. For the study, Hunt and her team studied 143 undergraduates at the University of Pennsylvania over a number of weeks. They tested their mood and sense of well-being using seven different established scales.
