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.

Dylan Casey, Vice President of Product Management for Yahoo, said that the Account Key could be expanded to include fingerprint scanning or face …

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.

Yahoo ‘On-Demand’ Password System: What Happens When You Lose Your Smartphone?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Yahoo has introduced quite an ingenious way to help all those who are constantly forgetting their passwords. The company has just announced a new ‘on-demand’ phone-incorporated password service at the SXSW festival that, almost entirely, eliminates the need to remember passwords. The new Yahoo announcement comes in the wake of several online hacking stories that we come across every day. Online security is something still of an uncharted territory for most of us, even if we are all over the web for one reason or the other. While uploading stuff on the web seems fun, there’s lot more than meets the eye. Breach of online property is quite the grave thing to happen in this age. We are more prone to all things “social” (mostly online) these days with Facebook and Twitter helping us share stuff faster than you can blink. However, problems occur when stuff like the iCloud hack happens and gives rise to the massively downloaded personal explicit content like the ‘Fappening.’ Companies such as Yahoo are aware of all these online threats looming so ominously. But unlike others, Yahoo is taking, it’s safe to say, a kind of unorthodox approach to the entire safety thing. The idea […]

Wi-Fi flaw gives up your password
