EternalRocks network worm uses 7 NSA hacking tools

While you won’t be forgetting the WannaCry ransomware attack, it is likely you will be hearing a lot more about the alleged NSA-linked EternalBlue exploit and DoublePulsar backdoor as it seems a wide range of bad guys have them in their toyboxes. At least one person is leveraging seven leaked NSA hacking tools for a new EternalRocks network worm.

EternalBlue and DoublePulsar

Malwarebytes believes WannaCry did not spread by a malicious spam email campaign, but by an scanning operation that searched for vulnerable public facing SMB ports, then used EternalBlue to get on the network and DoublePulsar to install the ransomware.

How to post Google Photos’ awesome animations to Instagram

TwitterFacebook

If you use Google Photos, you know the service is so much more than just the best way to store and back up all your photos and videos into the cloud.

Using advanced machine learning, Google Photos can intelligently identify people, places, and things — and it’s all easily searchable. One of the cooler things in Google Photos is the Assistant (not to be confused with Google’s other Assistant on Android and Google Home).

In the Google Photos app on iOS and Android, the Assistant is a card-based panel that does three things:

  1. Shows you the status of your backup.

  2. Automatically creates “movies” based on related video clips.

  3. Creates “animations” using batches of bursted photos. (You can also create your own animations by manually selecting between 2-50 photos, but the end result is the same — you still get a GIF file.) Read more…

Bing’s NFL predictions for Week 1 include several upsets, and one it missed

NFL football is back, and Microsoft’s Bing has returned with its crystal ball, picking the best bets for Week 1 of the new season and looking ahead to the predicted Super Bowl winner: the (yawn) Carolina Panthers.

For week 1, Bing has also picked three upsets: Buffalo Bills over Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers over Los Angeles Rams, and New York Jets over Cincinnati. Unfortunately, Bing already missed one: Carolina, which Bing predicted had a 57 percent chance of toppling Denver at home, lost 21-20 on Thursday night. 

Each year, Microsoft’s Bing search engine factors in historical performances, the location, and other factors to determine the winner of each game. The company also runs simulations of the entire season to try and figure out which teams will make it to the playoffs, and end up on top: Carolina over New England, at this point.

A Close Look At Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, Part 2: The Offering

In our previous article (the first in a two part series), we looked at some of the trends in cloud computing. To recap, cloud computing is expected to grow at a robust pace in 2016. The primary driver for this growth are the cost benefits of outsourcing the hard- and software required for technology based services, which in turn depends on the state of global economy. Cloud-based services comprise Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service and all three are projected to experience healthy demand. Microsoft currently provides services for two of the three segments (IaaS and PaaS) through its Azure offering. And it offers the third (SaaS) separately on Azure via applications such as Office 365, X-box Live, Bing, etc. In this article, we will look at Azure platform from Microsoft.

GOAT legs could keep robots upright over rough terrain


Most of the robots in existence are clumsy buffoons. Case in point: As advanced as our robots have become, they’re mostly still lacking the very human ability to avoid falls by making seemingly negligible changes to speed, center of balance and range of motion. In short, it’s not the sort of thing you’d fear in a robot apocalypse. It’s hard to fear a robot that can’t walk over uneven terrain or slippery surfaces, after all. Carnegie Mellon University student Simon Kalouche has other ideas. Kalouche’s leg is designed for maximum range of motion and easy force reduction. In other words, it can…

Minecraft comes to Oculus Rift

Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey talks virtual worlds at his Connect event in Los Angeles.

Yes, you can place blocks in virtual reality.

Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition is going to support Oculus Rift, we learned today at Oculus Connect in Los Angeles. Founder Palmer Luckey of Oculus VR announced that Microsoft will bring its block-building phenomenon will support the head-mounted display when it launches in Q1 of 2016.

This is a big get for Rift, which will need high-profile content to help convince people that spending the money to invest in VR is worth it.

Minecraft on Rift is also notable because Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson once called Facebook’s acquisition of the Rift “creepy.” Although, now that Microsoft owns Minecraft, Persson’s opinion on Rift doesn’t matter.

Ledge uses Venmo to make borrowing money and paying it back dead simple

SmartSelectImage_2015-09-24-13-31-43-2
We’ve all been there – sometimes you simply need to borrow money. Whether it’s for a big investment, moving to a new place or life just getting a little rough, Ledge aims to make it dead simple to borrow money from friends, family and others – and actually pay them back. It essentially works like a crowdfunding platform, but with a few twists. After borrowers create a campaign explaining how much cash they need, they give the loan interest rate (which adds a lending incentive), and specify the number of installments payments will be made over.   Like on several other platforms, funds aren’t available…

Apple will host Xcode on Chinese servers following malware attack

091615-ios-9-no-hands-thumbnail-5

Feed-twFeed-fb

Apple’s developer software Xcode will soon be available to Chinese developers.

First spotted by Apple Insider, this news comes on the heels of a malware attack on apps in the App Store.

Last week, security researchers at Palo Alto Networks discovered the infected apps and publicized an analysis report detailing the malware’s spread and impact. Xcode is a set of software tools developers use to create iOS apps, but a modified version of Xcode containing the malware, dubbed XcodeGhost, made its way into the App Store.

As Palo Alto Networks explains, the standard Xcode installer is nearly 3GB, which means it could take even longer to download large files from Apple’s servers in other countries. In response to this, some Chinese developers choose to download the software from other sources or obtain copies from colleagues. It’s also hard for developers to detect malware like XcodeGhost because it’s deeply hidden. Read more…

Oculus Touch will not ship alongside the Rift

Dean Takahashi demos the Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch.

Oculus has an amazing virtual-reality controller solution, but it won’t ship with the consumer version.

Oculus’s Touch controllers won’t ship until the second quarter of 2016, according to the company’s presentation at Oculus Connect today. That is an entire quarter after the Rift goes on sale in Q1 2016.

The company spent a long time talking about the possibilities and importance of Touch. This enables people to bring their hands and fingers into VR, which seems like a crucial step to give people a feeling of presence. So it feels like a missed opportunity for the company not to launch the Touch at the same time as Rift.

That missed opportunity is potentially exacerbated by the fact that the SteamVR-powered HTC Vive will launch with its touch-style controllers before the end of the year.
