+ - Dutch experts hack Google Glass ->

Submitted by rvw
rvw (755107) writes "Dutch computer experts have devised a trick for infiltrating and taking over Glass, Google's information glasses. With a few rows of additional software, hackers can take photos and make films without the Glass wearer even knowing. These images can then be sent to another computer. Anyone with malicious intentions can use a USB stick to enter a 'script' in the glasses at an unguarded moment which then allows them to take control."

+ - Dutch woman gets first complete skull replacement with 3D printed skull->

Submitted by rvw
rvw (755107) writes "Three months ago, a Dutch woman had her complete skull replaced by a 3D printed artificial skull. She has a disease which results in skull bone getting thicker, which would result in too much pressure on the brain. The operation was done in the hospital of the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. It's the first time a complete skull has been replaced. With 3D printing they could make an exact copy of the skull. Before they used cement to replace parts of a skull, but this was never a precise method."

rvw (755107) writes "Mitsuhei Murata, former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland and Senegal, wrote a letter to Ban Ki Moon: I raised the crucial problem. of N0.4 reactor of Fukushima containing1535 fuel rods. It could be fatally damaged by continuing aftershocks. Moreover, 50 meters away from it exists a common cooling pool for 6 reactors containing 6375 fuel rods! It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on NO.4 reactor. This is confirmed by most reliable experts like Dr. Arnie Gundersen or Dr. Fumiaki Koide.

He states it would destroy the world environment and our civilization."

Submitted by rvw
rvw (755107) writes "Dutch biggest telecom and internet provider KPN has been hacked. Between 20 and 27 january a group of Russian and Dutch hackers has been able to enter the network via an unpatched server. They claim to have had access to all systems, including basic phone services. The first week, KPN tried to solve the problems themselves, but that didn't work out. Only after a week they alerted several authorities about the breach. At 27 january they declared "code red", after which 100 people worked 24/7 to patch and reinstall servers. Just yesterday the news came out. They say they waited with the news to protect their customers."

+ - WhatsApp verfication check flaw->

Submitted by rvw
rvw (755107) writes "Using a prepaid phone without credit, you can take over another WhatsApp account. During installation WhatsApp asks you to enter your mobile phone number and sends out an SMS to verify the number. Because the SMS is not sent, but is accessible, you can send the SMS via a mobile service, using another phone number. The account is then linked to your phone, and will be disabled on the other phone."

+ - The wikileaks mirror list

Submitted by rvw
rvw (755107) writes "Wikileaks is subject to several attacks, and were kicked out by Amazon and their DNS-provider, moved to a swiss domain, which is now offline as well. Now the site is hosted or mirrored by Dutch provider e-Dot and mirrored by Dutch public broadcaster Powned.tv. In Germany and Finland the same is happening. I don't know how long these sites will last, but how about making a list of all sites here?"

+ - Dutch voting computers banned for next election

Submitted by rvw
rvw (755107) writes "Dutch voters in 35 cities will be using paper and pencil again for the November elections, as their SDU voting computers are unsafe. The computers emited radio signals that can easily be detected at a large distance, which would make secret voting impossible. Source: International Herald Tribune.

SDU, a big publisher in The Netherlands, uses Windows XP computers for their voting machines. Most Dutch cities use NEDAP voting computers, which are being revised now as it was possible to read out votes by using a modified TomTom navigation system. Each computer gets a new chip which cannot be modified, and all computers are sealed. Furthermore, TNO, an independent Dutch research institute, will test the NEDAP voting computers. See WijVertrouwenStemcomputersNiet (We don't trust voting computers) for more information."

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
