Need to get somewhere and don't want to use your legs like a sucker? Move over Hoverboard, Walkcar's got this.
The WalkCar is a laptop-sized transporter similar to the Segway, as you'll use body control to operate the powerful yet compact platform. Tilt left and it'll turn left, tilt right and it'll turn right, and so on. If you lose control, stepping off WalkCar stops it in its tracks.
A feature in Intel's Haswell CPUs can be abused to reliably defeat an anti-exploitation technology that exists in all major operating systems, researchers have found.
The technique, developed by three researchers from State University of New York at Binghamton and the University of California in Riverside, can be used to bypass ASLR (address space layout randomization) and was presented this week at the 49th annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture in Taipei.
Millennials are more likely to fall for tech support scams than baby boomers, Microsoft says.
The findings are revealed in a recent Microsoft study that saw it poll peeps in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and nine other countries. Redmond's not revealed the number of respondents.
Data breaches seem to dominate the news these days but in the mind of to Joe Public, hacking is still the sole domain of antisocial nerds and computer geeks. A stereotype persists to this day that most (if not all) hackers are spotty, teenage basement-dwellers, crashing websites for giggles rather than multi-million-dollar paydays.
Security researchers and the networks they rely on were at risk of breach by the hackers they investigate, thanks to now mitigated man-in-the-middle holes in a popular plugin for analysing debugger OllyDbg.
The debugger disassembles binaries, making it a handy way to understand an application's workings without having access to source code. Those abilities mean OllyDbg is often found in malware investigators' toolkits.
