Facebook embarrassed after white hat hacker posts on Zuckerbergs wall

first_imgFacebook’s security team has been left rather embarrassed this week after deciding to ignore a submitted vulnerability report only to find the exploit used to post on Mark Zuckerberg’s wall.The vulnerability was reported by a Palestinian white hat hacker named Khalil and outlined a way to allow anyone to post on a user’s wall. He followed the rules by using Facebook’s feedback system to file the bug and even included an example of it being used. However, Facebook ignored the report and when Khalil submitted it again he was told it wasn’t a bug.Knowing he had a legitimate exploit and Facebook wasn’t going to fix it, Khalil decided to take much more drastic and public action. He proceeded to use the exploit to post his bug report on Mark Zuckerberg’s own wall. As you’d expect, it only took a few minutes for Facebook to notice the post and contact Khalil to find out more about how he’d managed to circumvent the user account security.Was Khalil wrong to take such action? From a user security point of view he wasn’t as Facebook had decided to ignore and dismiss an exploit he knew worked. But Facebook doesn’t see it that way and has refused to pay Khalil the $500 reward he is entitled to. The reason being he broke the rules by using the exploit.I think in this case Facebook should issue the reward because of their own failings. They should also make it clear they want Khalil to keep looking for security issues as he’s already found something they completely overlooked.For those of you interested, Khalil posted a video demonstrating the exploit in action:last_img read more

Teenage fussy eater left blind by poor diet

first_imgTeenage ‘fussy eater’ left blind by poor diet The boy’s diet consisted of French fries, Pringles, white bread, processed ham slices and sausages. 63 Comments Image: Shutterstock/GreenCam1 Sep 2nd 2019, 6:01 AM By Ceimin Burke Short URL Image: Shutterstock/GreenCam1 Monday 2 Sep 2019, 9:00 PM Share535 Tweet Email47 THE RISKS OF eating poorly have been brought into stark relief by the case of a teenager who went blind because his diet was so bad.The link between poor nutrition and bad health, obesity and cancer have been long-established but new research shows that it can also permanently damage the nervous system, particularly vision.Researchers from Bristol Eye Hospital in the UK have published a report into the case of a teen who first visited his family physician at age 14 complaining of tiredness.The boy wasn’t overweight and wasn’t on any medication – however tests revealed that he was anaemic and had low vitamin B12 levels. He was treated with vitamin injections and given dietary advice. A year later his condition had become progressively worse and he was suffering from hearing loss and vision symptoms, but no cause was found.By age 17, the boy’s vision had deteriorated to the point of blindness.Physicians probed his nutrition and tests revealed that he had very poor bone density and a strikingly low vitamin D level. He was also suffering from a vitamin B12 deficiency, low copper and selenium levels and a high zinc level.The teenager confessed that since primary school his diet consisted of French fries, Pringles, white bread, processed ham slices and sausages.By the time his condition was diagnosed his vision was permanently impaired. 161,061 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Sport fishermen frustrated by king salmon management amidst banner sockeye run

first_img(Allison Mollenkamp / KDLG)The Nushagak River is having a near record return of sockeye salmon. Normally, the river is more famous for the strength of its king return, where many other Alaska rivers have struggled. This year, though the king run has struggled or at least run late, to the frustration of the anglers who line the river’s banks in June and July. Some sportfish operators say they would like to see some changes in the commercial sockeye fishery downstream to help protect the kings.Listen nowThere is no formal forecast issued for Nushagak kings anymore, but going into the season, state biologists felt it would be another good year.But the season got off to an achingly slow start, just as anglers showed up to fish the famous waters. On June 21st, sportsfishing guide Chris Carr lent voice to how few kings had gotten upstream thus far:“Two days ago we set the net, let it sit overnight,” Carr said. “That was a mistake. It took my daughter and all everything we had to pull that thing up. So we took another nice brand new net, set it on this morning’s tide, let it sit for six hours, and same thing: not one fish and every web covered in the green algae.”The kings trickled in, but not on an escapement “curve” that suggested it would make its 95,000 in-river goal. Early on the numbers of kings counted at the Portage Creek sonar site showed something was off. Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge King Camp Manager Jeff Pfaender said his repeat clients could tell, too.“Like I said before it’s our clients that have been here and know that and it’s a slow day when you’re out there watching the tip of the road and you’re knowing ‘God, normally I can catch 20 a day and I’m struggling to get my four or five out of the day.’ And I know that the client is sitting there thinking the same thing too.”Anglers know that fishing is fishing, and there are few guarantees when booking any trip tied to Alaska salmon. However, Pfaender, who has 23 years’ experience with this river, has been frustrated by what he sees as a chance to place a greater priority on protecting kings.“The biologists that manage this area, I know they have mandates and management plans in place, and it’s upsetting that they won’t take initiative, even though those mandates are there to see how hard the things are being hit this year.”The upriver anglers are about the last in line to get a chance at the kings, after the commercial sockeye fishermen net up tens of thousands and subsistence fishing around Dillingham harvests around 12,000 too. This frustrates the clients of Bob Toman, the founder of Toman’s King Camp on the Nushagak.“It’s the last one to get the fish,” Toman said. “The first ones are caught out in the ocean by, you know like salmon, by trawlers and stuff. And then they get closer and gillnetters get them and then the sports guys get them. So if any of those over harvest, there’s not enough left for us, and then for the Fish and Game to meet their quotas for the specific river.”Jeff Pfaender said repeatedly that he doesn’t see this as an issue of sport vs. commercial, which breeds some of the ugliest fish politics from other Alaska fisheries. However, he does hope that perhaps the commercial fleet could pause to help out the king numbers.“I’d like to see at least every other tide be un-netted and allowed to come in the river,” Pfaender said. “And it may only take one or two days to jump us above our minimum escapement goals on kings.”But while the kings have lagged, the Nushagak sockeye are returning in some of the highest numbers ever recorded. Pausing the commercial fishing downstream would only allow more “over” escapement, something area management biologist Tim Sands doesn’t see as an option.“Our system is so dynamic,” Sands said. “We have these huge masses of sockeye coming in. Taking a tide off is catastrophic potentially.”The Nushagak-Mulchatna King Salmon Management Plan governs decisions on the sport, subsistence, and commercial fishing of this species. Former ADF&G sportfish biologist Dan Dunaway helped draft those rules, which he believes have largely been successful:“There’s been a lot of dissatisfaction expressed by some sport folks over the way the plan worked out, but it’s what was politically viable at the time in front of the Board of Fish and with the local users of all groups.”Dunaway added that he would be interested to see parts of the plan reviewed.“It would be interesting to gather up the available data to look at sport harvest, sport impact,” Dunaway said. “Also possibly, I seem to recall that there’s been a potential for a growth in the subsistence harvest, especially the subsistence impact in the Dillingham locale. And this is something else that can get kind of tricky. Upriver villages I would say are truly a lot more dependent on that king run.”The king run continues to build slowly, creeping towards the lower end of its goal. It’s possible they are just running late this year, perhaps due to the low water or lack of windy days that normally push fish. If the run comes in on size, likely most concerns will be calmed, but if the numbers stay low proposals may emerge to change the management plan.Correction: This story originally misquoted Bob Toman as referring to trollers when he actually was talking about trawlers.

Strike at all edn institutions 29 Jan
first_imgLeaders of Progressive Students` Alliance at a press conference at Madhu`s Canteen on the Dhaka University campus on Wednesday. Photo: Prothom AloThe Pragatisheel Chhatra Jote (Progressive Students’ Alliance), a platform of left leaning students’ organisations, have called a strike at all educational institutions across the country on 29 January to press home their four-point demand.Prior to this, they will hold a solidarity rally in front of the Raju Sculpture on Dhaka University campus on 26 January while a nation-wide demonstration will be staged on 28 January, the platform’s coordinator Imran Habib announced at a press conference at the Madhu’s Canteen of the Dhaka University on Wednesday.The demands include immediate arrest and examplary punishment to Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) men who had attacked agitating students on Tuesday and on 15 January, withdrawal of false cases against the general students, bearing the medical expenses of the wounded students and holding of DUCSU elections.At least 40 students of Dhaka University were injured as BCL men beat them at the DU vice-chancellor’s office on Tuesday.Imran Habib at the press conference also demanded forming a judicial inquery committee to look into the incident.”The High Court has ordered the Dhaka University authorities to hold elections of Dhaka University Central Students Union (DUCSU) within six months. We fear a plot is being hatched to foil the DUCSU elections,” Imran Habib said.Leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra Union, Samajtantrik Chhatra Front, Chhatra Oikya Forum, Samajtantrik Chhatra Front (Marxist), Bangladesh Students’ Federation and Biplobi Chhatra Moitree were present at the press conference. DU students started to demonstrate on 11 January demanding implementation of their four-point, including scrapping of affiliation of seven colleges with Dhaka University.last_img
John Romeros Blackroom will channel the spirit of classic FPS games

first_imgAs a tease for their upcoming FPS game, Doom co-creators John Romero and Adrian Carmack released a video last Friday that parodied the finale of The Force Awakens. At the end of the video, we were informed that there would be a full announcement for the game on April 25. That day is here, and as promised, we now know what the boys and developer Night Work Games have been cooking up.Blackroom will be “a visceral, varied and violent shooter that hearkens back to classic FPS play with a mixture of exploration, speed, and intense, weaponized combat,” according to the game’s Kickstarter page. The entire game is set inside of a holographic “black room” that’s malfunctioning. As protagonist Santiago Sonora, it’s your job to go in and fix the black room, but of course, you’ll have to survive the game’s ever-changing environments and hostile foes.Since this is a game from John Romero and Adrian Carmack, two of the fathers of the modern FPS, it will contain many elements from the glory days of the genre. Players will have to rely on their skills — rather than perks — in order to be successful. Expect to see the return of techniques like circle strafing, strafe jumping, and rocket jumping. John Romero is personally creating each level, which means that, just like in the old days, we’ll have an FPS game that encourages exploration.Blackroom will have single player and multiplayer modes. The single player campaign will be over 10 hours long and have a wide variety of maps with different environments, like Victorian mansions, Wild West ghost towns, outer space, and more. Single player will also have challenge modes with leaderboards. Multiplayer will feature co-op, one-on-one deathmatch, and free-for-all arena. There will be six built-in community maps as well. The game will be fully moddable and will run dedicated servers.There are a number of different tiers for backers of the game to choose from, ranging from $5 to $10,000. The lower-tier rewards offer the game, swag, the soundtrack, and other goodies, The highest tier will let backers actually help design a level and talk to John Romero one-on-one. As is the case for most Kickstarter campaigns these days, this campaign is designed to gauge community interest in the game in order to show investors that the title is worth an investment.If everything goes according to plan, Blackroom will be released on PC and Mac in 2018. To find out more about the game, make sure to visit its Kickstarter page.last_img read more

Amazons Bezos envisions airbag phone files patent

first_img As one smartphone scenario goes, the user drops the phone. Whoops, says the safety monitoring system, this device is no longer in contact with the user. The approaching surface is measured and the velocity is determined. Does the risk of damage exceed the threshold? If so, here comes the airbag to be deployed, and it’s the airbag, not the poor device, that makes first contact with the surface.When the news hit that Bezos had filed a patent for phones with airbags, a number of responses from writers in the blogosphere admitted disbelief, perhaps not unrelated to bearing witness to the sting of discovering that the ‘Internet Explorer users are more stupid’ report was a hoax. The application states conditions that make such a proposal appear practical considering the heavy use of mobile devices and the need to protect them from damage. “These portable devices are sometimes vitally important to the user as they often contain data that is related to the user’s work and personal life,” says the application. That data might include private data difficult or nearly impossible to replace.Bezos studied electrical engineering and computing science at Princeton, and also worked as a financial analyst. That, leave alone his ascent as leader of click-and-buy Amazon, suggests a scientist who knows how to market ideas. His business case in the application is as interesting as his technical description.“With the number of cellular phones in use exceeding several billion and repairs typically exceeding $25, the costs of damage and loss of cellular phones amounts to billions of dollars per year,” says Bezos. He also notes in the application, “At least one report claims 1 out of 3 cellular phones are damaged or lost in the first year of ownership.”Whatever direction the patent application takes, or whoever compares Bezos more to Don Quixote than Thomas Edison, Bezos is not likely to feel demolished. As he once told new students at Princeton, “Failure is an essential component of innovation.” © 2011 ( — A U.S. patent application was filed in February 11, 2010 bearing the names of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Amazon VP Greg Hart but was discovered this week by Geekwire. According to their patent application titled “Protecting Devices From Impact Damage,” smartphones will get airbags as a safety precaution in case their users drop the phones or they fall accidentally. The two patent-seekers are proposing the system and method not just for the smartphone but for a range of mobile devices that nobody likes to drop, such as audio players, cameras and pagers. Bezos and Hart’s patent filing has Illustrations and flowcharts to further explain their “removably attachable damage avoidance system.” Amazon CEO: Color Kindle ‘still a long way out’ Explore furthercenter_img Citation: Amazon’s Bezos envisions airbag phone, files patent (2011, August 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from This document is subject to copyright.

Note These are just prospects that could be in p

first_img(Note: These are just prospects that could be in play with the Cardinals and or have local ties, there are many more names that deserved mention.)WINNERSBrandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State – We know Arians wants a deep threat and we know Keim has talked about finding a guy to take the top off a defense. What we didn’t know was just how explosive Cooks would measure in Indianapolis.Cooks finished tops among wide receivers in the 40-yard dash and 20-yard shuttle and 10th in the three cone drill.He displayed the type of short area burst and long speed necessary to win at the NFL level.The problem is he may have vaulted himself into the first round of the draft.C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa – Fiedorowicz was looked at as a plodding, inline tight end by most, then the combine happened and his short area quickness came through. He finished first among tight ends in both the three cone and short shuttle while putting up 25 reps on the bench press.Fiedorowicz seemed to be misused at Iowa, and he looks like he can be an athletic, Heath Miller-type in the NFL.Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State – His film showed him as an explosive, violent, hard-hitting safety that could cover at times. But his times showed that if asked, he has the athleticism and length the Cardinals covet in the safety position to be a weapon in the secondary. LOSERSWill Sutton, DT, Arizona State – Measured in at 6-feet, with shorter arms at 31 1/4″, then proceeded to plod through most of the workouts.Sutton’s shine has really come off after returning to ASU for his senior season, but the tape still shows a relentless worker, with outstanding closing speed and extremely heavy hands.The problem is he has to be able to win early and get his hands on guys, because he’s not nearly as explosive.Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Arizona – There was always a concern about Carey’s slight build — he’s very thin in his lower body — but the whispers of Carey being a power back that’s not built like a power back are continuing to show as truth.Carey ran a slow 4.7 40 and continued his bad workout without showing up in any of the “explosive” categories, finishing out of the top 10 in every one.Carey’s running style — he flourishes between the tackles — and lack of ideal size, combined with his slower than expected times means his Pro Day will be important.Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville – While many were expecting an electric week from the Louisville safety, his place in the losers has nothing to do with his on the field performance. With the NFL Scouting Combine behind us, it’s time to talk about who shined and who disappointed.While the combine is only a snippet of the entire draft process, it can be a valuable tool in figuring out if things that were present on tape — home run speed, short area explosiveness, fluid hips — actually exist.With that in mind, Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians are looking for long, linear athletes outside, and explosive, powerful, quick twitch athletes near the line of scrimmage. There were plenty of both in Indianapolis. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments   Share   Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Much has been made of Keim’s longing to find a safety with height, length and speed, and many saw Pryor as a potential fit in round one for that.Listed at 6-2 at Louisville, Pryor measured in an amazing three inches shorter, coming in at 5-11.There are whispers that the Cardinals would like to find a safety that’s at least 6-1, and after Pryor’s measurements, that’s one more off the list.Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama – Much has been speculated this offseason of whether or not the Cardinals would have interest in the Crimson Tide tackle, but after failing multiple teams physical evaluations with an arthritic knee, he may be off their board altogether.Writing negative things about prospects is never fun, but these are some things that stuck out, leaving lingering questions going forward. Bucannon, was one of the most explosive athletes to test, finishing in the top five of all workouts, while also measuring in at 6-foot-1 with nice length in his arms at 32 2/8″, numbers that should intrigue the Cardinals.Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan – While Lewan has long looked stiff in pass protection in college, he showed the fluid movement skills of a potential left tackle in the NFL.The Chaparral High School product was excellent in drills, finishing in the top five in the 40, vertical jump, broad jump and three cone drill, showing off an explosiveness that was not always present on Saturdays while he was at Ann Arbor. Joel Bitonio, OT, Nevada – The ultimate winner at the combine, Bitonio showed up at 6-4, but measured in with the same arm length as Taylor Lewan and longer arms that Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews.Bitonio is a pit bull on the field, and it showed up in his workouts as he showed to be the most athletic offensive lineman in Indy, finishing in the top five in every category but the bench.Bitonio has a chance to be a dynamic NFL player because of his athleticism, but also his non-stop motor and nasty streak that will endear him to his coaches.
