Me: “The full dump from the 2012 LinkedIn breach just dropped, so you’re probably not going to see much of me over the next week.” Wife: “Again?” Yes, again. If you’re just waking up from a coma you would be forgiven for thinking that it’s still 2012. But no, it’s 2016 and the LinkedIn breach […]

Yahoo Mail app gets a major update; password no longer required, third party accounts supported

Yahoo announced yesterday a major update to the Yahoo Mail app. Included is a new feature called “Yahoo Account Key,” which allows you to sign into the app without using a password. Instead, the app will send a notification to the smartphone that is associated with the account. The message asks the user to either accept or decline the request to login. The former will obviously open the Yahoo mail app, while the latter will keep the app closed.

Hacking an Android phone can be as simple as typing in a really long password

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Android 5.0 “Lollipop,” the latest version of the Android phone operating system, is vulnerable to a simple hack that involves typing in a password so long that it causes the phone to crash before then booting to the unlocked home screen. The vulnerability, discovered by John Gordon, is easy to exploit: simply open the phone’s “Emergency Call” feature, type a few characters and the repeatedly copy-and-paste them. The pasted text becomes longer and longer — Gordon’s reaches over 160,000 characters — and, as such, harder for the phone to handle. Next, open the camera app which causes the phone to ask for a password into which the 160,000 character string is pasted. After a few minutes the phone restarts, booting straight to the unlocked home screen. Gordon told CNN Money that he informed Google in August and the company has released a patch, but many users could remain affected due to the lag in Android software updates. This hack is the latest in a long line of vulnerabilities that appear in major operating systems, including a text message hack that affected Android which was discovered in July and a malware hack that affects iOS discovered in September.
