US May Return Russian Diplomatic Property Confiscated by Obama Admin to Improve Relations

The US may hand two diplomatic compounds confiscated by the Obama administration back to Moscow if it sees “acts of good faith” from the Kremlin, similar to the recently brokered ceasefire in Syria, Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Trump, says.

By considering a release of the Russian diplomatic compounds that have remained sealed since December, Washington wants to leave the door open for rapprochement with Russia, Gorka told CNN in an interview on Thursday.

The END of cash? Visa declares war on coins & notes by ‘bribing’ businesses

THE CREDIT card behemoth Visa has declared war on cash by “bribing” businesses to ditch coins and notes.

Visa announced a program in the US to award small and medium–sized businesses up to $10,000 (£7,727) if they completely ditch cash in favour of credit and debit payments, with a suggestion that a similar scheme could be implemented in the UK.

Jack Forestell, head of global merchant solutions for Visa, said: “With 70 per cent of the world, or more than 5 billion people, connected via mobile device by 20201, we have an incredible opportunity to educate merchants and consumers alike on the effectiveness of going cashless.”

Mark Zuckerburg finally found out why Trump won; hint: it wasn’t Russia

Mark Zuckerberg, the 30-something billionaire founder of Facebook, hasn’t lived a ‘normal’ life…at least not at any point in the recent past.

Researcher Claims Samsung's Tizen OS is Poorly Programmed; Contains 27,000 Bugs!

Samsung's Tizen operating system, written in C/C++ programming language, currently has 72.5 million lines of source code, out of which Karpov's team has analysed some randomly chosen modules i.e. 3.3% of the entire Project and found nearly 900 errors.

"If we extrapolate the results, we will see that our team is able to detect and fix about 27000 errors in Tizen," Karpov says.

In April this year, Israeli researcher Amihai Neiderman called Tizen "the worst code I've ever seen" after he examined the operating system and discovered as many as 40 zero-day vulnerabilities in Tizen code.

Australia plans law to force tech giants to decrypt messages

The Australian government on Friday proposed a new cybersecurity law to force global technology companies such as Facebook and Google to help police by unscrambling encrypted messages sent by suspected extremists and other criminals.

But some experts, as well as Facebook, warned that weakening end-to-end encryption services so that police could eavesdrop would leave communications vulnerable to hackers.

The new law would be modeled on Britain’s Investigatory Powers Act, which was passed by the British Parliament in November and gave intelligence agencies some of the most extensive surveillance powers in the Western world, the government said.
