‘BE PREPARED’ ECB fires grave warning to Europe's most debt-ridden countries

EUROPE'S debt-laden countries have been warned to prepare for higher borrowing costs and an end to ultra accommodative monetary policies that have helped prop up economies in the aftermath of the financial crisis.

In a stark alert, a top policymaker from the European Central Bank (ECB) told governments and other players to expect interest rates to start rising from negative levels.

ECB executive board member Benoit Coeure told an audience in Paris: "It's obvious that the financial sector, and other economic actors and especially governments must prepare (for higher interest rates).

"I hope that eurozone governments know that interest rates will not stay at current levels."

Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal are among the countries that are burdened with heavy debts after being bailed out at the height of the financial crisis.

Europe supplants US as biggest source of child abuse hubs

Europe now hosts majority of child sex abuse images (60 per cent), pushing North America into second place (37 per cent), according to an annual report from the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF).

In contrast, UK now hosts less than 0.1 per cent of child sexual abuse imagery globally, something IWF credits as down to a "zero tolerance approach" by the UK internet industry.

The majority of all child sexual abuse URLs identified globally in 2016 (92 per cent) were hosted in five countries: the Netherlands (37 per cent), the United States (22 per cent), Canada (15 per cent), France (11 per cent), and Russia (7 per cent).

The biggest increase seen was in the Netherlands, which went from hosting 12,703 abuse URLs to 20,972.

Drive-by Wi-Fi i-Thing attack, oh my!

Apple hasn’t provided much detail, but you don’t want to ignore the latest iOS release – 10.3.1 – because it plugs a very nasty Wi-Fi vulnerability.

Cupertino has rushed out the emergency patch because: “An attacker within range may be able to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip” – meaning, presumably, that malicious packets gave attackers a vector.

The fix for the bug, which Apple attributes to Gal Beniamini of Google’s Project Zero, was a buffer overflow fixed by better input validation.

The bug affected iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later, and iPod touch 6th generation and later.
