Xiaomi Mi 4c to launch October 3rd; only 100,000 units will be offered

A little more than a week ago, we told you about the Xiaomi Mi 4c. This is a new variation of the Xiaomi Mi 4 and has already gone through the TENAA certification process in China. Xiaomi has been trying to hold off on releasing the Xiaomi Mi 5 since that model is expected to be the first smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. However, the chip isn’t expected to be shipped to manufacturers until later this year, which means that handsets incorporating Qualcomm’s latest high-end SoC won’t start rolling off the assembly line until March.

In the meantime, all Xiaomi can do is to …

IRS hacked, 100,000 tax accounts breached

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Criminals hacked into an Internal Revenue Service website and gained access to approximately 100,000 tax accounts, the agency said Tuesday. Another 100,000 attempts were made but were not successful. The attack appears to have first begun in February, the agency said. The hackers got in by taking information about taxpayers they’d acquired from other sources and using it to correctly answer several personal identity verification questions in the IRS’ “Get Transcript” application, the IRS said in a statement. This allowed them to get information about tax accounts through the application. The information stolen included Social Security information, date of birth and street address. The Get Transcript application allows users to view their tax account transactions, line-by-line tax return information or wage and income reported to the IRS for a specific tax year. It was used to securely retrieve approximately 23 million taxpayer transcripts last year, the IRS said. The information the hackers used to get in was probably previously stolen by other hackers who then sold it on the open market, said Rob Roy, chief technology officer ofHP Enterprise Security Products. The hackers who bought it “appear to have hired an army of people to submit over 200,000 queries into […]

Typosquatters fined £100,000 for premium rate SMS deception

Two firms found to have used typosquatting domains to lure consumers to misleading web competitions have each been hit with unprecedented £100,000 fines, the UK industry watchdog has announced.

Premium rate regulator PhonepayPlus ruled that Dutch-based companies RD Media Europe and Unavalley BV were guilty of running a premium rate racket in which consumers were invited to enter SMS-based competitions for the chance to win prizes including Apple iPads.

Unfortunately, in order to enter visitors had to supply their mobile numbers in order to receive a competition PIN, after which they were charged £1.50 for each question received and each answer given without the charges being explained in advance.

In addition to breaking the premium rate phone services code of practice, the companies impersonated popular domains such as Twitter, YouTube and Wikipedia using typosquatted domains  — ‘wikapedia.com’ and ‘twtter.com being examples — and visuals that made them look almost identical to the real websites. 

One consumer complained that his fiancée had been tricked into paying £63 to enter a competition she thought was connected to YouTube, the regulator said.

In addition to the £100,000 fines, each company was ordered to refund consumers of money taking during the misleading competitions.

 “These judgements send a clear message to providers that they cannot play on the public’s trust in well-known websites to promote services,” said PhonepayPlus chief executive, Paul Whiteing.

“We want consumers to continue to have confidence in the digital market place and we will do everything we can to ensure that they do. Most providers support us in this area as they recognise that this market will only grow if consumers have such trust.”

PhonepayPlus introduced it 12th code of practice in 2011 after extensive consultation with the industry, which for the first time required that all premium rate providers register with the watchdog.

The premium rate phone industry is controversial at the best of times but typosquatting was probably the final staw in these cases.

In December, Websense warned UK consumers to beware using sites that employ typosquatting techniques as part of a wider sales deceptions.
