John McAfee Has Developed The ‘World’s First Truly Private’ Smartphone

“Enormous investment in hardware costs have gone into this,” McAfee says, adding that the handset has a bank of switches on the back cover which enable the user to physically disconnect the battery, the antennas for Wi-Fi, geolocation, and Bluetooth.

The switches can also be used to disconnect the camera and microphone. “It also will not allow the phone to connect to a Stingray or any other IMSI catcher device. In addition, it contains a web search anonymizer,” he explains.

McAfee is planning to release the John McAfee Privacy Phone later this year under the umbrella of MGT which is a cybersecurity firm that he heads.

This product isn’t geared towards the average consumer, seeing as how it costs $1,100, it will be marketed to enterprise customers.

Microsoft needs to stop blocking updates on Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs

Microsoft's decision to block security and non-security updates on customer PCs running Windows 7 or 8.1 (or the server variants) with "next-generation silicon" is as customer unfriendly as it gets.

What makes this all the more problematic is the fact that Microsoft's detection routines, those that identify the processor of a PC to determine whether updates will be blocked or allowed, is flawed.

We already talked about some "old generation" processors being caught in the crossfire before. Windows users reported that PCs with AMD Carrizo processors were blocked from installing updates even though that should not have happened according to Microsoft.

It was clear then that Microsoft screwed up the identification of processors. Now, a story on Infoworld highlights that AMD Carrizo systems are not the only ones caught in the crossfire.

O (n^2) Canada! Code bugs knacker buses, TV, broadband, phone lines

Canadians have had a mildly frustrating week as a pair of IT problems derailed broadband connections, blacked out TVs, cut off phone lines, and halted buses in America's hat.

Nationwide telco provider Shaw said a botched software update was behind an outage that left thousands of customers across the country without home internet, phone, or television service for several hours on Thursday. "A significant number of Shaw customers across Western Canada [were] impacted," said the comms giant, which has more than two million subscribers and employs 15,000 people.

The meltdown, which began early in the afternoon, was fully remedied by about 7PM Mountain time.

Facebook admits: governments exploited us to spread propaganda

Facebook has publicly acknowledged that its platform has been exploited by governments seeking to manipulate public opinion in other countries – including during the presidential elections in the US and France – and pledged to clamp down on such “information operations”.

In a white paper authored by the company’s security team and published on Thursday, the company detailed well-funded and subtle techniques used by nations and other organizations to spread misleading information and falsehoods for geopolitical goals. These efforts go well beyond “fake news”, the company said, and include content seeding, targeted data collection and fake accounts that are used to amplify one particular view, sow distrust in political institutions and spread confusion.

New MacOS Malware, Signed With Legit Apple ID, Found Spying On HTTPS Traffic

Many people believe that they are much less likely to be bothered by malware if they use a Mac computer, but is it really true? Unfortunately, No.

According to the McAfee Labs, malware attacks on Apple's Mac computers were up 744% in 2016, and its researchers have discovered nearly 460,000 Mac malware samples, which is still just a small part of overall Mac malware out in the wild.

Today, Malware Research team at CheckPoint have discovered a new piece of fully-undetectable Mac malware, which according to them, affects all versions of Mac OS X, has zero detections on VirusTotal and is "signed with a valid developer certificate (authenticated by Apple)."

Dubbed DOK, the malware is being distributed via a coordinated email phishing campaign and, according to the researchers, is the first major scale malware to target macOS users.

Italian police say Amazon has evaded 130 million euros of taxes

Milan tax police have told Amazon they believes the world's largest online retailer has evaded around 130 million euros ($142 million) of taxes in Italy, a source close to the matter said on Friday.

The allegedly unpaid taxes refer to the period between 2011 and 2015, when Amazon (AMZN.O) made revenues of around 2.5 billion euros in Italy, the source said.

The tax police's findings have been handed to Milan prosecutors, the source added.

Amazon issued a statement denying it had evaded any taxes, and said its profits in Italy, on which taxes are paid, had been low due to its considerable investments in the country.

Will Trump Release The Missing JFK Files? (Video)

In October this year, President Trump will have to make a decision. Not a particularly important decision in the eyes of many, but one that many historians and skeptics are salivating over. Unless President Trump blocks it, the National Archives will release 3,600 never-before-seen files relating to the JFK assassination and possibly the full unsealing of another 35,000 assassination related documents.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at what information does files could potentially reveal. Speculation is that the documents will show exactly how much the intelligence agencies knew about Oswald prior to the assassination, as well as his mysterious trip to Mexico City. As of now, the intelligence agencies have given no indication that they plan to petition to block the release of the documents. But hey, it’s still early

The economy is barely growing. These are 3 theories why.

The Commerce Department released estimates Friday showing that the economy is growing more slowly than it has in years.
For the first quarter of 2017, it grew a measly 0.7 percent, the worst growth since mid-2014. Economists had been hoping that sluggish economic growth would start to pick up by now as more people find work and wages increase, plus optimism gets a boost from the Trump administration’s promise to cut taxes. Two months ago, they’d predicted a slight uptick to 2 percent growth.

Women being CONNED into unnecessary double mastectomies by doctors who misrepresent genetic testing, warns Stanford researchers

The decision to undergo a double mastectomy is not one that is made lightly, but it is one that countless women have had to face over the years. The number of women undergoing the procedure has increased dramatically since 2013, when famed actress Angelina Jolie revealed that she’d had both of her breasts removed due to a mutated BRCA1 gene — which can purportedly increase the risk of breast cancer by 87 percent.

Millions of women have rushed to get testing of their own, and many have had their breasts removed as a result. But new research from Stanford University School of Medicine has shown that many of these women went under the knife for one simple reason — and it wasn’t cancer. In fact, it is supposedly because their doctors had “misunderstood” their genetic testing panels. Indeed, the scientists say that approximately half of all women who had their breasts removed didn’t need to have the surgery at all.
