+ - OAuth Flaw Allowed Access to Any Facebook Account->

Submitted by
Orome1
Orome1 writes "A flaw in Facebook's OAuth system that allows the communication between applications and users has allowed web application security specialist Nir Goldshlager to gain full control of any Facebook account. The exploit worked on all browsers, and would even work on accounts that have 2-step verification enabled. Luckily for all of us, this flaw has already been patched by Facebook, but Goldshlager says that he found a couple of more and Facebook is still working on fixing them."

+ - Are Mosquitos Becoming More Intelligent?-> 1

Submitted by Copper Nikus
Copper Nikus (1615089) writes "An article at the BBC makes a shocking claim about mosquitoes. It appears some individual insects in the wild have developed the ability to ignore the very popular DEET repelent after a first exposure. Imagine what misery this will bring to the human race if this trait spreads to the general mosquito population through the process of evolution through natural selection (or through divine intervention if you happen to be a creationist)."

+ - Nokia closed application store in China for N9

Submitted by jppiiroinen
jppiiroinen (2664019) writes "It seems that Nokia is slowly killing existing applications for their Linux based N9 mobile phone which are available thru their store. As a developer who has published paid (and free) apps, it looks like that after their final blow of killing the support for paid applications in China, where the main revenue came from, there is not any means to make money, and no reason to maintain apps anymore. What this means also for the end-users; no premium apps, like Angry Birds.

There was no heads-up or anything, just a single email without any means to make a complain.

Nokia, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish."

Submitted by
MrvFD
MrvFD writes "Ever since the most recent layoffs were announced by Nokia last month and the end of Qt related programs at Nokia was rumored, the fate of Qt has been in the air despite it nowadays having a working open governance model. Fear no longer, Qt brand, since Digia has now announced acquiring of Qt organization from Nokia. While relatively unknown company to the masses, it has already been selling the non-free (non-LGPL) licenses of Qt for 1.5 years. Hopefully this'll mean a bright future for Qt in co-operation with other Qt wielding companies like Google, RIM, Canonical, Intel, Skyp... Microsoft, Jolla and the thousands of Qt open source and commercial license users. Digia now plans to quickly enable Qt on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms, where work has already been underway for some time."
