Google has been fined €145,000 for collecting WiFi data in Germany.



A German privacy regulator has fined Google for illegally recording signals from Wifi networks while it was taking photographs for its Street View service.
Google's roving Street View vans picked up large amounts of personal data such as e-mails, passwords, photos and online chat protocols, said the commissioner for data protection and freedom of information in Hamburg city state, Johannes Caspar.
Caspar fined Google 145,000 euros ($189,700), close to the maximum of 150,000 euros allowed under his mandate but a drop in the ocean for the top search engine provider, which has a stock market value of around $260 billion.
 It was discovered that between 2008 and 2010, Google accessed insecure Wi-Fi networks with its Street View vehicles and illegally downloaded large quantities of personal data including emails, passwords and photos. The company has admitted wrongdoing and has since deleted the data from its servers. Regulators still aren’t satisfied, however.

LinkedIn Acquires Newsreader Startup Pulse for $90 Million


LinkedIn Acquires Newsreader Startup Pulse
LinkedIn announced on Thursday it has acquired mobile news aggregation startup Pulse, as Kara Swisher reported last month that it would, signaling another step by the massive professional network toward becoming an online content powerhouse.
It’s a big buy for LinkedIn, costing a cool $90 million, according to the company.
The app, which collects news articles from a range of topics chosen by users and presents them in a clean, stylish format, rose to the top of Apple’s App Store ranks just a few years ago, quickly becoming a favorite among the many newsreaders currently available. Pulse currently claims more than 30 million users globally who read more than ten million stories daily using the app.
But more than that, it’s yet another move by LinkedIn to expand beyond being just a static resume service for recruiters and professionals. Spearheaded by executive editor (and former Fortune and Wired journalist) Dan Roth, LinkedIn has made major strides in pushing original and partner content through the site, aiming to keep users returning and engaged on a regular basis.

LinkedIn Acquires Newsreader Startup Pulse
“We believe LinkedIn can be the definitive professional publishing platform — where all professionals come to consume content and where publishers come to share their content,” LinkedIn SVP of product and user experience Deep Nishar said in a company blog post. “Pulse is a perfect complement to this vision.”
In that vein, the company launched its “Influencer” program late last year, essentially asking big names in business, entertainment and politics to write original think pieces that users can read on the site. And, in Twitter-esque fashion, users are able to “follow” those influencers across the site, so that only the content users want will appear inside their respective feeds. (Not surprisingly, the move came only months after Twitter cut off LinkedIn tweet syndication, which provided LinkedIn with most of the content flowing through the system up until that point.)
And of course, let’s not forget LinkedIn Today, the company’s news aggregation service which also brings users tons of fresh stories on the regular.




Biggest Cyber Attack In History Is Taking Place Right Now

Global internet slows after 'biggest attack in history'


The Biggest Cyber Attack In History Is Taking Place Right Now
Internet speeds around the world have noticeably slowed down due to a massive "distributed denial of service" attack, reports the BBC.
These DDoS attacks bombard targeted web servers with so much dummy traffic that people trying to access a site for legitimate purposes are unable to do so. It's most analogous to a traffic jam on a highway with no one able to move.
The BBC says that security experts are describing it as "the biggest cyber-attack in history."
The attacks were focused on a company called Spamhaus, which maintains a "domain name system" to connect a typed-in URL to the correct server hosting the appropriate content. With this company's services compromised, large portions of the web became less stable.

A Dutch web host called Cyberbunker states that it will host anything except child pornography or terrorism-related content. Spamhaus blocked Cyberbunker's servers in an effort to weed out any spammers that might host their content with the company.

Now Spamhaus is alleging that Cyberbunker is collaborating with a Russian and Eastern European criminal organizations to facilitate the attacks.

A DDoS attack of 50 gigabits per second is usually enough to take out a major bank. Spamhaus is seeing sustained attacks of 300 gigabits per second. It's only because of its distributed structure helping to effectively reduce the load that it's still operational.

Facebook Now Allows Friends To Promote Posts, But Privacy Concerns Arise

On average, only 16 percent of your friends see your Facebook posts. However, with promoted posts, one of Facebook’s newest features, more of your friends will be likely to see your posts than ever before, as it will allow users to pay to promote their friends’ posts.

Facebook hopes that quality content that’s supported by you and your friends will be featured at the top of your news feed as a result of this new feature. Some users have already received the new feature, but the gradual roll out will continue among Facebook users with fewer than 5,000 total friends and subscribers.


Facebook’s new service could be described as a paid version of Reddit, a free website for which users vote other users’ submissions “up” or “down” based on whether they liked them or not. The challenge for Facebook is that with free -- and immensely popular -- alternatives like Reddit, many users may not want to pay to promote their friends’ posts.

Facebook began testing the concept of users promoting their own posts last May, and it officially rolled out the feature to the public in October. Promoted posts usually cost about $7 or so -- and the price varies based on location and how many people the post can potentially reach. However,  the feature allows users to promote others' promoted posts, which will help users reach a wider audience than they would without the service -- and potentially help Facebook’s bottom line as well.

However, the new promoted posts service could increase the potential for cyber bullying.

This potential problem could occur when someone posts, say, a photo on Facebook, and then that user’s friend decides to promote that photo. The problem is that the friend doesn't need the original user’s explicit permission to promote the photo.

This could be a problem, for example, if one of your friends from college decides to promote an old embarrassing photo of you -- you won’t be able to prevent the picture from getting to the top of the News Feed for a large percentage of your friends.

This could lead to public shaming, which is considered a form of cyber bullying.

It’s a problem that Facebook has addressed in the past. The site has been proactively teaching users about cyber bullying and it partnered with several anti-bullying organizations after a user named Amanda Todd committed suicide after being bullied on Facebook, which reignited the charge that Facebook facilitates cyber-bullying happened more than other social networks.

However, promoted posts might offer another way for cyber bullies to pick on their victims: By paying to promote embarrassing or personal content to show up at the top of the News Feed, Facebook could encourage users to embarrass other users for a small fee.

In addition, there’s no way to determine who promoted a post, so, as TechCrunch notes, a friend promoting an article written by you could be perceived as a shameless plug by you to get more of your friends to check out your article -- even if you had nothing to with the promoted post.

However, Facebook is quick to point out that there are a lot of benefits to the service. A Facebook spokesperson released a statement to AllFacebook on Friday, describing the feature thusly:

“If your friend is running a marathon for charity and has posted that information publicly, you can help that friend by promoting their post to all of your friends,” the post said. “Or if your friend is renting their apartment out and she tells her friends on Facebook, you can share the post with the people you and your friend have in common so that it shows up higher in news feed and more people notice it.”

Facebook will likely monitor this new feature to see how it’s used. It has the potential to be make Facebook into a more Reddit-like site, where popular posts dominate the front page on a merit basis -- but it could be used maliciously to embarrass or play pranks on friends -- only time will tell.

Facebook is planning to emphasize its mobile platform in 2013, and it will be interesting to see if the Promoted Posts feature will be included in its mobile plans. In the company’s most recent earnings report, Facebook said mobile ad revenue accounts for 23 percent of its total ad revenue.

International Business Times contacted Facebook to ask if any safeguards will be put in place to prevent cyberbullying through the new service-- and how the site plans to address potential complaints about it -- but it didn’t get back to us by the time this article was published.

Facebook lets users promote friends' posts

The move expands upon the personal promoted posts feature launched last October.

Facebook has expanded its promoted posts program, allowing users to pay to highlight posts made by friends. The move, if successful, could help boost fees Facebook collects from the recently introduced service.

The new feature lets users pay to push posts made by friends to the top of the news feed of people with whom the post was originally shared. Previously, users could only promote their own posts, typically for $7 a pop in the U.S.

Under the changes, people can now promote any friend's post, such as status updates, photos or videos. Facebook says the new function respects privacy because the post is only promoted to the same users that would have originally been able to see it.

"It simply helps to ensure that important posts are noticed by more people," said Gwendolyn Belomy, a spokeswoman for Facebook. It began gradually rolling out globally starting Thursday to people with fewer than 5,000 friends or subscribers.

The social network launched the promoted posts program in October 2012. Fees the social network has collected from the tool thus far "have not been material," Facebook said in its annual report filed Feb. 1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Charity donations, fundraising and publicizing events are just some uses of the new functionality that Facebook is highlighting.

"If your friend is running a marathon for charity and has posted that information publicly, you can help that friend by promoting their post to all of your friends," the company said.

The tool can also make the apartment hunting process easier, the social network said. If a friend is renting out her apartment, for instance, and tells her friends on Facebook, someone else can share that post with both users' mutual friends so that it shows up higher in the news feed.

Other uses may include promoting a friend's announcement about a move or a new job, the company said.

The service will cost the same as promoting your own posts, which will vary depending on the user's geographic location and the size of the person's network.

Pirate Bay files police report alleging piracy by pro-copyright organization

Parody site imitates appearance of Pirate Bay site while providing links to two directories of legal download sites.

The Pirate Bay reported an anti-piracy organization to Finnish police on Monday for allegedly breaching its copyright.

The Copyright Information and Anti-Piracy Center (CIAPC) recently launched a website that imitates the appearance of The Pirate Bay (www.piraattilahti.fi/), replacing the pirate ship logo with one featuring a sinking ship, and substituting the usual torrent search links with links to two directories of legal download services.

Although The Pirate Bay explicitly gives permission for organizations to use the site's content for "obvious well meaning usage, i.e. distributing works of cultural benefit for the end user," it said it will proceed with a lawsuit against CIAPC.

"CIAPC have copied files from which The Pirate Bay is built, to produce a fraudulent parody site," The Pirate Bay said, adding that in many countries this could constitute fair use for the purposes of parody -- but not under Finnish law.

"While The Pirate Bay may have a positive view on copying, it will not stand by and watch copyright enforcing organizations disrespect copyright," says a Pirate Bay statement.

The Pirate Bay was launched in 2003 and is run by dozens of individuals around the world. After a Swedish court ruling in 2009 gave jail terms for the founders of the site, the current organizers prefer to remain anonymous.

CIAPC aims to "prevent the production, distribution and import of unauthorized copies and recordings and put a stop to other acts that infringe copyright legislation". And managing director Antti Kotilainen told local media that a legal challenge would be a good thing if it forced The Pirate Bay's owners to identify themselves.

The Pirate Bay added that any money it might be awarded by the courts would go towards a new computer for a nine-year-old Finnish girl whose Winnie the Pooh laptop was confiscated following a CIAPC-instigated police raid. 

Burger King Twitter account 'HACKED'.


US fast-food company Burger King has said its Twitter account may have been hacked, after its profile picture was changed to a McDonalds logo.

Somebody hacked Burger King's Twitter account on Monday, posting obscene messages and changing its profile picture to a McDonald's logo.


The tweets stopped after a little more than an hour, and Burger King said it had reached out to Twitter to suspend the account. 



The Burger King account was suspended, but a screengrab posted by @AnonymousPress showed the @BurgerKing's Twitter page where it was written: "Burger King USA official Twitter account. Just got sold to McDonalds because the whopper flopped."

The Twitter mishap isn't all bad news for Burger King though — the account added 5,000 new followers in the first 30 minutes since the hackers took over.


A spokesman for Burger King said: "It has come to our attention that the Twitter account of BURGER KING has been hacked.

"We have worked directly with administrators to suspend the account until we are able to re-establish our legitimate site and authentic postings.

"We apologize to our followers who have been receiving erroneous tweets about other members of our industry and additional inappropriate topics."

George Bush's family emails, photos hacked

A hacker apparently accessed private photos and emails sent between members of the Bush Family, including both former presidents, and a spokesman for George HW Bush said a criminal investigation is under way. George Bush's family emails, photos hacked

George Bush's family emails, photos hacked

The Smoking Gun website said the hacker, who went by the online moniker "Guccifer," gained access to emails, photos, private telephone numbers and addresses of Bush family members and friends.
The website displayed photos it said came from the hacker, including one that purported to show the elder Bush during his recent near-two-month stay in a Houston hospital where the 88-year-old was treated for complications arising from a bronchial infection.

The authenticity of the photos and other details on the website could not immediately be confirmed. A spokesman for former president George HW Bush declined to comment on the reports.

"There's a criminal investigation and, as such, there's nothing else we can say," Jim McGrath told The Associated Press Friday.

The FBI in Houston, where Bush lives, was similarly tight-lipped.

"We do not confirm or deny the existence of any investigation," Houston FBI spokeswoman Shauna Dunlap said.

Freddy Ford, a spokesman for former president George W Bush, who has a home in Dallas, also said Friday he "won't be commenting."

The word "Guccifer" is plastered across the photos published on the Smoking Gun website in translucent, neon blue print. The website quotes "Guccifer" as describing himself as a veteran hacker who has long been in the government's sights.

Entertainment: Milkha Singh charged Rs. 1 for biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag


Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
The biopic titled Bhaag Milkha Bhaag features actor Farhan Akhtar in the lead role and is slated for a July release.
"We wanted to give a priceless token of appreciation to Milkhaji for letting us tell his story through our film. We looked for that something special for a very long time. Then we finally ended up sourcing a special Rs. 1 currency note that was printed in 1958," Rajiv Tandon, CEO, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures Pvt. Ltd, said in a statement.
Flying Sikh Milkha Singh took just one rupee from Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra to allow him to make a film on his life. What's special about the currency note is that it was printed in 1958, the year when the athlete won the first gold medal for independent India in the Commonwealth Games.
Milha Singh



The relevance of the note is that "in 1958 independent India won its first gold medal in Commonwealth Games because of Milkhaji and he also won two gold medals in Asian Games", added Tandon.

Money was not Milkha's priority -- he only wanted Mehra to make the film.

The legendary athlete wanted that "it should be made in such a way that it inspires more youngsters to earn medals in athletics", said Tandon.

A source close to Singh said: "The legend (Milkha Singh) was extremely moved. It (Re.one note) was like a souvenir for him."

DRDO and PMO Websites Hacked !

Algerian hackers carried out a successful cyber attack on a government server which hosts websites of extremely sensitive organisations and defaced websites operated by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). 

The most sensitive website that came under attack was the one operated by the Recruitment and Assessment Centre (RAC) of the DRDO (www.rac.gov.in/experts/Dz.php).

The RAC recruits scientists for various DRDO laboratories and also assesses the suitability of DRDO scientists for promotions. The other most important website was the one hosted by the Advisor to the Prime Minister on Public Information, Infrastructure and Innovations (http://iii.gov.in/tmp/Dz.php).

The other victim websites were: West Bengal police (http://policewb.gov.in/wbp/coounter.txt); Directorate of Estates of Ministry of Urban Development (http://gpra.nic.in/gpra/writereaddata/Dz.php), Biotechnology Industry research Assistance Council (http://birapdt.nic.in/video.Dz.php), UT of Diu (www.diu.gov.in/departments/Dz.php) and http://rciregistration.nic.in/rehabcouncil/Dz.php’.

A Hyderabad-based cyber security expert Kusumba S. told ‘The Hindu’ that the hacker had apparently accessed the host server and modified the root files of respective websites. “This could be dangerous because the hacker could have stolen data as he had complete access to root files,” he felt.

NOKIA Providing your phone "a wireless charging pillow"



Nokia recently announced its latest smartphone  Lumia 920, which has wireless charging feature.
As the name implies, wireless charging is a cordless battery refill. No more cables need to be connected from the power source to the smartphone.
To recharge the battery, Lumia 920 users simply put the smartphone on a bearing charger . And the charger is of course still connected by cable to power source.
Nokia has collaborated with Fatboy to provide pads dock.

As the new Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 support Qi wireless charging, Nokia brings three new wireless charing accessories, the Fatboy Wireless Charging Pillow (DT-901), Wireless Charging Plate (DT-910) and the Wireless Charging Stand (DT-900). All of them support Qi wireless charging technology, meaning you can simply place your Lumia phone on them to start recharging.





Qi Technology :

The name "Qi" comes from the "qi" concept of energy flow from Chinese medicine, and is pronounced "chee." Qi works by generating an electromagnetic field between a charger and a device through magnetic induction. Qi chargers have a built-in transmitting coil that communicates with Qi devices using a specific electromagnetic frequency, so any Qi device will work with any Qi charger.



Under the Qi specification, "low power" for wireless transfer means a draw of 0 to 5 W. Systems that fall within the scope of this standard are those that use inductive coupling between two planar coils to transfer power from the power transmitter to the power receiver. The distance between the two coils is typically 5 mm. Regulation of the output voltage is provided by a digital control loop where the power receiver communicates with the power transmitter and requests more or less power. Communication is unidirectional from the power receiver to the power transmitter via backscatter modulation. In backscatter modulation, the power-receiver coil is loaded, changing the current draw at the power transmitter. These current changes are monitored and demodulated into the information required for the two devices to work together.

The group called "Syrian Electronic Army (SEA)" hacked the English website of news organisation in February 2012. Back in July the same group gained access over the news network's Twitter account and started posting stories denouncing opposition fighters.
The SEA has also targeted Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya News and the Harvard University website.

The Saudi Government has also thrown their support against this group.

Bye Bye Hotmail, Now Outlook.com is here

Bye Bye Hotmail
Bye Bye Hotmail

It's time to say Hello to Microsoft's new free Email account Outlook.com .It will eventually replace Microsoft's old email service Hotmail.com.
There's a new, clean look and it ties in your social media contacts. It's not too far off from what you may be used to already in Gmail.com.

Outlook.com will replace Hotmail, which Microsoft is phasing out, having owned the email service since 1998. Founded in 1996, Hotmail was among the first companies to offer free consumer email accounts online.

Citing ComScore, the Wall Street Journalreported Hotmail had 324 million unique visitors as of June. The shift to Outlook "appears to be a shot at Google's Gmail service," the Journal's Shira Ovde and Steven D. Jones write. Gmail, had about 278 million users as of June, according to the same ComScore measure.
Microsoft touted integration with social networks in its new Outlook.com service, saying the email application will connect users to contacts on Facebook and Twitter, for example. The company also said its new service was especially designed for tablet computers.
