+ - Xbox 360 to Run Linux Soon?

Submitted by StarMan
StarMan (628233) writes "An anonymous hacker gave a short presentation[youtube video] during the 'Lightning Talks' at the 23rd Chaos Communication Congress in Germany where he suggests Linux will run on the Xbox 360 soon. The masked hacker booted an Xbox 360 with the the King Kong game and after the loading-screen a screen pop-ups showing an Xbox360 logo, MacOS logo, Tux and the words "coming soon ...". A small custom PCB was coming out of one of the sides of his retail console and he was also using an Apple Macbook to perform his hack. It's possible he found an exploit in the shaders of King Kong, a game that has been known for shaders that can be modified (they aren't checked for authenticity or signed). The description of the presentation says a linux kernel is already booting ... this wasn't shown during the presentation however."

+ - GMail Exploit Is Now Fixed

A website could in return declare the function "google", and put all your contacts and their details into an array. From there it could have been parsed and sent to the malicious server using Ajax. Earlier today there were reports on zdnet that said the flaw was fixed, however at the time it wasn't true. Currently as of 8 PM EST the flaw has been fixed. When attempting to execute the attack, all you get is a blank page now. Visiting the old page on Google that revealed all the data in an XML file now gives an error. If you don't get the error log out of Google's services and back in."
