LG G Pad X 10.1 launches this week on AT&T, brings the old Snapdragon 800 back in spotlight

AT&T today announced a brand new tablet made by LG. Called G Pad X 10.1, the slate is similar to the G Pad II that LG will showcase later this week at IFA 2015.

As its name suggests, the LG G Pad X 10.1 sports a 10.1 inch display (with 1920 x 1200 pixels). The tablet runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and is – strangely – powered by Qualcomm’s 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, which has been around for 2 years now. Other features include Dual Window split screen for multitasking, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable …

AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot reportedly stuffs extra ads into Web pages

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Stanford University computer scientist Jonathan Mayerwas recently Web browsing at a U.S. airport when he noticed there were too many online advertisements. A partnership between Apple and a credit card processing company could add local retailers — even food The website for Stanford, for example, displayed a pop-up ad for a 60 percent discount on jewelry. The Federal Communications Commission website appeared to be advertising ladies’ boots. An example of an ad said to be injected over the FCC’s website while on an AT&T free airport Wi-Fi hotspot. “The web had sprouted ads,” wrote Mayer on his blog. “Lots of them, in places they didn’t belong.” The Wi-Fi hotspot he was using at Dulles Airport near Washington, D.C., is run by AT&T, he said. Before boarding, Mayer wrote he analyzed the Web traffic to figure out what was happening. The hotspot was interfering with non-encrypted Web traffic and displaying on pages that were not affiliated with the website. It’s often referred to as “injecting” ads and is a somewhat controversial practice. The platform that was injecting the ads comes from a small company called RaGaPa, Mayer wrote. RaGaPa adds an advertising style sheet into HTTP traffic. If a Web browser […]

AT&T played key role in NSA spying

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

AT&T played a key role in helping the National Security Agency spy on U.S. internet traffic. That’s according to a report by the New York Times. The article cites documents provided by whistleblower and former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The documents date from 2003 to 2013 and detail the telecom company’s relationship with the NSA. The New York Times, citing the files, says AT&T handed over billions of e-mails to the NSA in that time period. The company also reportedly offered technical assistance in carrying out a secret court order to wiretap all online communications at the United Nations headquarters, which is an AT&T customer. According to the report, AT&T installed surveillance equipment in at least 17 of its internet hubs on American soil more than any other telecom company. The documents describe the NSA’s relationship with the company as “highly collaborative,” citing AT&T’s “extreme willingness to help.” An AT&T spokesperson told the New York Times it does not comment on issues of national security.

AT&T Risks Hit to Reputation After Report of Data Spying for NSA

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

(Bloomberg) — AT&T Inc.s reputation may take a blow from reports suggesting the telecommunications company had a deeper level of involvement in U.S. government surveillance programs than had previously been disclosed, analysts said. AT&T had a longstanding relationship with the National Security Agency that may have superseded those of competitors, the New York Times reported Saturday. Documents provided by former government contractor Edward Snowden that were reviewed jointly by the newspaper and investigative journalism group ProPublica described AT&Ts relationship as highly collaborative with the NSA. Its no secret phone companies have been compelled by various agencies to turn over data as part of U.S. surveillance programs since the Sept. 11 attacks. Whats unusual in the fresh revelations is the extent to which AT&T may have shown, in the words of one document, an extreme willingness to help. That may give AT&T a temporary image knock without hurting its long- term business, analysts said. They might get blow-back, Roger Entner, analyst at Recon Analytics LLC in Dedham, Massachusetts, said in a telephone interview. While he expects no effect on the companys stock price, this story is one of those triggers that will let them evaluate if they want to continue this […]
