Tech Giants Scramble to Fix ‘Freak’

Posted: March 10th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Technoid, Technology | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on Tech Giants Scramble to Fix ‘Freak’

Get Your Freak OnAs Google, Apple and Microsoft scramble to patch a long missed security flaw it might be timely to remember how we got here. Way back at the latter end of the last century – the 1990s, when Netscape browser was all the rage and – SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption was brand-spanking-new, the U.S. government wanted control over export of “weapons grade” encryption.

Its theory was that domestic communications could benefit from stronger, 128-bit encryption, but ‘backdoors’ should be available to U.S. intelligence and law enforcement when it came to foreign communications, the concept of weaker, “export grade” encryption was born.

Turns out that this theory and it’s legacy backdoor, a vulnerability that we’ve come to know in recent days as ‘FREAK’ still exists in up to 30 percent of U.S. web servers. It’s a sad example of how zombie-security from the era that gave us grunge can come back and bite us on the posterior.

Meanwhile, Apple and Google are saying they’ve developed fixes/patches – though we note Apple has yet to deploy –  to mitigate the ‘Freak’ security flaw. Initially thought to be immune, Microsoft released an advisory which warned hundreds of millions of Windows PC users are also vulnerable to the security vulnerability :: Read the full article »»»»

China Kills Google's GmailChina-tech watchers are saying China has all but blocked the last remaining ways for people to access Gmail, Google’s email service.

They say Gmail traffic in China was shut down last week after Chinese authorities apparently plugged the third-party applications that allowed users to get around existing hurdles. Only a trickle of emails have got through since.

Gmail is the world’s biggest email service and has been largely inaccessible from within China since the run-up in June to the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators.

But users could still access the service by using third-party mail applications, rather than the webpage. Gmail users could access emails downloaded via protocols like IMAP, SMTP and POP3, allowing users to communicate using Gmail on apps like Apple iPhone’s Mail and Microsoft Outlook :: Read the full article »»»»

Australia's Attorney General Considering Heavy Handed Copyright EnforcementAustralia’s Attorney General, Senator George Brandis has foreshadowed serious changes to the nations copyright laws.

Senator Brandis says one move he’s considering is asking internet service providers – ISPs – to issue warnings to customers.

Australians are among the worst offenders when it comes to illegal downloads, Senator Brandis is also apparently considering asking ISPs to block sites where content can be illegally downloaded.

Copyright holders like film and television and music studios have long argued that it is ISPs role to prevent internet users from illegally downloading their content.

The glitch in the plan might be a landmark High Court ruling in 2012, where the court found service provider iiNet wasn’t responsible for its customers’ illegal activities :: Read the full article »»»»
