Nokia's fall from grace

Postby Maxidyne » 15 Jul 2013, 13:00

What should have been a day of pride for Nokia served only to remind the world how far the company has fallen. At last week’s Lumia 1020 event in New York, it became clear that the company has no plans to change its ways—even if its stubbornness means sliding into irrelevance in the smartphone market. As Apple and Samsung duke it out for first place, Nokia is left fighting for the scraps along with BlackBerry and every other unlucky device maker in the smartphone game.

How did the number one p [...]

A German mobile security expert says he has found a flaw in the encryption technology used in some SIM cards, the chips in handsets, that could enable cyber criminals to take control of a person’s phone.

Karsten Nohl, founder of Security Research Labs in Berlin, said the encryption hole allowed outsiders to obtain a SIM card’s digital key, a 56-digit sequence that opens the chip up to modification. [...]

The popular Ubuntu Forums have been hit by a security breach, exposing the user names, passwords and email addresses for 1.82 million registered users.
So far, it does not appear the data has been published online.

On Saturday night, unknown assailants defaced the Ubuntu homepage (see picture) and someone was able to gain access to servers. Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, quickly issued an advisory letting all users know to safeguard other accounts and change their passwords.

Nokia's Lumia 625 Does Being Bigger Well

Postby Maxidyne » 24 Jul 2013, 10:17

Nokia on Tuesday unveiled the Lumia 625, its latest Windows Phone 8 device and the one with the largest screen so far -- 4.7 inches.

Apart from that, it has little to distinguish it from other models in the Lumia lineup, and its 1.2 GHz processor appears weak beside the 1.6- and 1.7-GHz CPUs sported by some high-end smartphones.

The 625 "provides many innovations found in the recently announced flagship Nokia Lumia 1020 -- including a range of integrated camera applications," Nokia [...]

A number of apps containing the so-called MasterKey vulnerability were discovered by cybersecurity firm Bitdefender last week.
