Dads Invent Simple Device To Prevent Hot Car Fatalities

As we head into warm-weather seasons, parents are reminded of the tragedies that occur each year when small children are accidentally left in hot cars.

Two dads from Tampa, Florida have developed a product which they say will prevent hot car fatalities and give parents peace of mind. It’s called Sense-A-Life — an easy-to-use device that alerts parents if they’ve left their children in the car.

Neighbors Jim Friedman, an electrical engineer, and Fadi Shamma, a pharmacist, came up with the idea for Sense-A-Life one day while their children were playing together. Shamma told The Huffington Post that Friedman was talking about some of the engineering side projects he likes to do outside of work.

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.

2 simple things you can do to fight hackers

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Another day, another major cyber attack. The pro-cheating dating website Ashley Madison is just the latest company to suffer a huge security breach possibly exposing the personal details of millions of users worldwide. As these types of incidents become more common, companies are increasingly investing in cyber security protections. But even with the best systems in place, hackers can still easily break into a company’s network if workers aren’t also being diligent about security. There are two things that every employee should be doing to help keep their company safe from cyber criminals, Chris Young, general manager of Intel’s Security Group, told Business Insider. “Think before you click. That is the number one thing that every average employee in an organization can do,” Young said. Humans are still the weakest link when it comes to an organization’s security, according to a surveyof security professionals by Intel published Monday. According to the report, successful attacks against companies most often stem from three things: User errors caused by lack of awareness, unofficial use of online services, and using social media sites at work. Basically, employees are clicking links they shouldn’t be, which can give attackers a way in. One way attackers get in […]

 Powered by Max Banner Ads A smartphone marketed as the most anti-surveillance, NSA-proof personal device – the BlackPhone – has been found vulnerable to a simple SMS attack that allows the hacker to steal contacts, decrypt messages, and even take full control of the device. The super-secure smartphone comes loaded with applications ensuring encrypted communication, text messaging, video conferencing, and secure online storage. The bug came in a prepackaged Silent Text secure text messaging application that comes along with the BlackPhone. It is also available for download for other devices in Google Play.A “serious memory corruption vulnerability” discovered by Mark Dowd of the Australia-based Azimuth Security, has already been fixed after the analyst privately disclosed the glitch to developers. Before the application was patched, an attacker would need nothing more than the phone number of the target device. By sending a specifically designed payload to the victim through the Silent Text application, the attacker could inject malicious code that would inherit the privileges of the secure app – thus gaining the ability to decrypt text messages, gather location information, read the phone’s contacts, and write to the external storage. “Successful exploitation can yield remote code execution with the privileges of the […]
