Like some airlines, Royal Caribbean has started to roll out facial recognition and other technologies to streamline its boarding process. As people churn through the line faster with mobile boarding passes and facial recognition, the rest of the line benefits as well—that 90-minute wait will average more like 20 minutes for even those passengers boarding the old-fashioned way.
Last week, researchers Gaëtan Leurent and Thomas Peyrin released a paper detailing improvements to the original SHAttered project that theoretically allow chosen-plaintext attacks against SHA-1. A fully-functional version of this type of attack was demonstrated in 2009 with a dramatic improvement to chosen-prefix attacks for the MD5 hash algorithm.
To deliver data of the required detail, TfL says detailed digital mapping of all London Underground stations was undertaken to identify where wi-fi routers are located so it can understand how commuters move across the network and through stations.
The attacker ports your SIM card to a phone that they control. Once the attacker controls your primary email account, they begin to move laterally across any lucrative online services that you manage via that email address (bank accounts, social media accounts, etc.).
Unfortunately, Game Golf landed its users in a sand trap of privacy concerns by not securing the database: Security Discovery senior security researcher Jeremiah Fowler said that the bucket included all of the aforementioned analyzer information, plus profile data like usernames and hashed passwords, emails, gender, and Facebook IDs and authorization tokens.
Then, last month, a report by the cybersecurity software company Symantec revealed that a majority of hotels inadvertently leak guests' personal data to third parties when they send out confirmation emails.
Washington (CNN) — Chinese-made drones may be sending sensitive flight data to their manufacturers in China, where it can be accessed by the government there, the US Department of Homeland Security warned in an alert issued Monday obtained by CNN.
Governments in the G7 and around the world need to resist this seemingly benign request from their law enforcement establishments, and resolve instead to make sure that their citizens have the best tool to protect them: strong encryption, from end to end, deployed widely, to defend the society against its attackers.
A huge security flaw with WhatsApp that compromised the privacy of 1.5 billion users this week will not be the last and may not even be the worst incident of its kind, the founder of rival messaging app Telegram has warned.
Farrell and Schneier propose greater transparency as one means of strengthening democracy against information attacks that undermine trust. Chilling legitimate participation and reducing the diversity of opinions voiced would not fix the broken public comment process.

Echoing methods which have already been used to control Uyghurs in Xinjiang, the Chinese government has tightened its grip around Tibet by securing an already nearly impassable border with drones, facial recognition and radar.
Before we go into details of how implementing RPA can help fast track Data Protection compliance, let us understand the current state of Data Protection and Privacy Laws in the Middle East, some of the challenges faced and the role of RPA.
Jonathan Levin, a researcher who has written books about iOS and macOS internals and security and provides training on iPhone security, said that in his opinion, so few iOS zero-days have been caught because they are worth a lot of money, and thus more likely to be used in targeted attacks.
The training data would improve the tech’s ability to link together footage from a large network of security cameras, allowing it to better track and identify potential targets.
Healthcare organizations (HCOs) are increasingly at risk from legacy operating systems, device complexity and the use of commonly exploited protocols, according to a new study from Forescout.
While existing attacks target information at specific addresses, RIDL operates akin to a passive sniffer that eavesdrops on in-flight data (e.g., data in the line fill buffers) flowing through CPU components.
It is confirmed that hackers have been able to remotely install surveillance software on phones and other devices, by taking advantage of a major flaw in what they discovered in messaging app, WhatsApp. WhatsApp is one of Facebook’s family apps, and Facebook’s challenges with privacy and data breaches has been a matter of public show over the last couple of months, as such, this goes on to add to the larger corporate entity’s headaches.
San Francisco just became the first city in the nation to ban the use of facial recognition technology by police and government agencies. Rosenberg does worry about an uptick in neighborhood surveillance, she said, but is pleased that the bill will stop facial recognition technology from misidentifying people as criminal suspects in real-time policing.
After all, it’s not Customs and Border Protection collecting your facial recognition data directly — it’s the airlines — and they pass it on to the government. If you’re a U.S. citizen, you can opt out by telling an officer or airline employee at the time of a facial recognition scan.
“WhatsApp encourages people to upgrade to the latest version of our app, as well as keep their mobile operating system up to date, to protect against potential targeted exploits designed to compromise information stored on mobile devices,” the company said in a statement.
As said by Jan Oetjen, the Managing Director of GMX “It’s important for everyone to take the security of their email accounts seriously, as these are at the center of our digital lives.
The average internet user might not have heard of Google alternatives like Naver or Baidu, let alone a new family of search engines specifically dedicated to privacy. In comes Qwant, an encrypted search engine that works like Google but keeps zero logs.
First a look at: 1.1 The media backdrop 1.2 The Crux: a.k.a what the GDPR really says about security 1.3 Security as source of privacy risks: security as a legitimate interest, IP addresses as personal data, and profiling in a security context.
But researchers at Fidus Information Security discovered, and revealed on Friday, that the system has a dangerous flaw: you can send a text message to the SIM and force it to reset.
