Defaced Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines’ website has been hacked today by the cyber-attack group Lizard Squad, which now appears to be calling itself ‘Official Cyber Caliphate’.

The national carrier’s site shows a header that says ‘404 – Plane Not Found’, likely a reference to the loss of Flight MH370 last March and the shooting down of Flight MH17 in July. Lizard Squad hasn’t mentioned why it targeted Malaysia Airlines, but seems to imply that it has gained access to some confidential company data.

However, Malaysia Airlines says that its servers are intact and have not leaked any user data, and that it has solved the issue which appears to have been a DNS attack. The company says its site will become fully operational in about 22 hours from now, and that travelers can book flights as usual via this page.

The site also has the familiar Lizard Squad avatar, links to three Twitter accounts (@LizardMafia, @UMGRobert and @UmgChris) and a rap song that plays automatically, celebrating Lizard Squad’s achievements including its recent take downs of online gaming services Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

While Malaysia Airlines says that it hasn’t lost any data, Lizard Squad tweeted that they have found something on the company which they will share shortly.

It’s not immediately apparent why Esports company UMG Gaming’s owner Robert Terkla’s Twitter account, along with what appears to be CEO Chris Tuck’s account, are listed on the site. Terkla said on Twitter that he had nothing to do with the attack.

Microsoft Will Provide Free Upgrades To Windows 10

windows10
Microsoft promised a new build of Windows 10 next week, and also confirmed previous rumors that the first build of the operating system for smartphones will be released in February.

If you are on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1, you will be eligible for a free upgrade inside the first year of Windows 10. Microsoft made the announcement this morning at an event on its corporate campus outside of Seattle.

On stage, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson pitched Windows 10 as a service, instead of simply an operating system that a user installs. Or, put more simply, the company views the next version of Windows as the hub of its various services.

Indian Government Blocked 32 websites

Following an order issued by the Department of Telecom in India, ISPs have blocked 32 sites including Vimeo, Dailymotion, GitHub and Pastebin across the country.

Indian Government Blocked 32 websites

Users across India have complained about being unable to access the aforementioned sites and many others. Today, Centre for Internet & Society director Pranesh Prakash was among the first to share the circular that went round to local ISPs on Dec 17 demanding that they block access to multiple sites.

 

The availability of these sites is currently varied across the country, depending on whether the ISPs that operate in different service areas have taken action to comply with the order.

Indian ruling party BJP’s National Head Arvind Gupta confirmed the block order via Twitter, citing ‘anti-India content’ hosted on those sites from terrorist outfit ISIS:

 

While Gupta claims that those sites which remove the objectionable content in question will be unblocked, the block order is problematic for a number of reasons: it doesn’t clearly state to ISPs why they have to block these sites and for how long; furthermore, the blocks are site-wide and affect users who depend on these online services for work.

In addition, no statements were issued by the Indian government authorities to the public informing them of the ban until the circular was leaked today.

MAJOR SITES VULNERABLE TO HEARTBLEED; CHECK WHERE ALL YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS

heartbleedThe Heartbleed bug has caused anxiety for people and businesses. Now, it appears that the computer bug is affecting not just websites, but also networking equipment including routers, switches and firewalls. The extent of the damage caused by the Heartbleed is unknown.  Here is a list of the sites that are vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug .

True love Bra | Unhooks itself when in true love

You may not like to wear this thing in public as this bra pops open the moment it realises you are in true love!
True Lover Bra
Japanese Lingerie Company Ravijour has introduced a high-tech lingerie that comes undone only when you reach a true lover’s state.

Billed as ‘True Love Tester’ bra, this has sensors embedded inside which are connected to a smartphone app via Bluetooth that detect a particular heart rate.

“It would only open when in-built sensors sense the user’s pulse rate reaching the ‘True Love Rate’,” said a report on ITMedia, a Japanese website.

How does it function? The sensors detect a woman’s heart beat increase caused by ‘adrenal medulla’ – part of the adrenal gland.

The adrenal medulla secretes catechlomine, which affects the automatic nerve, and apparently increases the heart rate.

The sensors then study the heart signal and dispatch it to the app for examination.

The app then calculates the ‘True Love Rate’ based on the heart rate changes. When the ‘True Love Rate’ exceeds a certain level, the bra unhooks automatically, the report added.

The magic bra would not automatically unhook itself while exercising or walking.The sensors have the ability to differentiate between heart beat rise owing to exercise and being in love, the report added.

Earth Hour Blue | Use Power To Make Change

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). Earth Hour engages a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues. It was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007.
Earth Hour
Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement. The event is held worldwide and held towards the end of March annually, encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet. Earth Hour 2013 was celebrated on March 23, 2013. Earth Hour 2014 is scheduled for Saturday, March 29, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. during participants’ local time.

However, Bugatti will retain its place in the Guinness book of records.

The independently verified Hennessey speed will not go into the book as the Venom could only be driven one way on the NASA landing strip.

The book requires cars to make runs in two directions to account for variables, including gradients and wind direction.
