Submission + - Uber, Careem suspend services in UAE capital (dawn.com)

OWCareers writes: ABU DHABI: Ride-hailing companies Uber and Careem have suspended services in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, since Saturday and do not know when they can resume operations, they said on Sunday.

The National, a UAE newspaper, quoted unnamed sources as saying that as many as 50 drivers for Uber and Careem had been arrested.

An Abu Dhabi source familiar with the situation told Reuters some drivers had been detained over violations of regulations, but did not specify how many drivers or describe the violations.

Submission + - Multiple Linux Distributions Affected by Crippling Bug in systemd (agwa.name)

An anonymous reader writes: System administrator Andrew Ayer has discovered a potentially critical bug in systemd which can bring a vulnerable Linux server to its knees with one command. "After running this command, PID 1 is hung in the pause system call. You can no longer start and stop daemons. inetd-style services no longer accept connections. You cannot cleanly reboot the system." According to the bug report, Debian, Ubuntu, and CentOS are among the distros susceptible to various levels of resource exhaustion. The bug, which has existed for more than two years, does not require root access to exploit.

Submission + - Dakota Pipeline Activists Accuse Facebook of State Collusion (telesurtv.net)

Burz writes:

An alternative media outlet covering the grassroots Indigenous struggle against the US$3.8 billion North Dakota pipeline project have accused Facebook of deliberately censoring "a critical moment of our coverage" as riot police cracked down on protesters. Amid a visibly beefed up police presence, at least 20 grassroots and Indigenous activists were arrested and Unicorn Riot were on hand to livestream the "direct action" to their Facebook page, but were blocked from doing so by Facebook. In comments made via email to RT, a member of the media outlet said their "collective members immediately noticed that the full Livestream event URL (https://livestream.com/unicornriot/events/6340986) was being blocked from Facebook.” “Posts and comments with the URL both immediately triggered popup security alerts,” the unnamed member added. “We tried putting the same URL through Bitly shortening and that official Unicorn Riot page post was deleted by Facebook within a few minutes.

Their video shows a militarized police force drawing semi-automatic weapons on unarmed protesters.

Submission + - Man arrested for 'jailbreaking' iPhones (nhk.or.jp)

An anonymous reader writes: Japanese police have arrested a hacker for illegally removing software restrictions on Apple's iPhones and selling the devices.

Daisuke Ikeda, who is 24 and from Toyama City, is suspected of what's called "jailbreaking" and infringing Apple's intellectual property rights.

Police say Ikeda removed software restrictions imposed by iOS, iPhone's operating system, and sold five such devices on an online auction site around April. They say the suspect has admitted the allegation.

Submission + - Firefox May Get Tracking Protection on Normal Tabs, Not Just in Private Browsing (softpedia.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Yesterday, Mozilla announced three new experimental features via its Test Pilot program, one of which will have a serious impact on the privacy of Firefox users if approved. The latest addition to this program is an option that allows users to activate a privacy-focused feature called Tracking Protection.

Right now, this feature is only available in Firefox's Private Browsing mode and works by blocking known sources of tracking scripts, such as ad networks. Mozilla is using the Test Pilot program to test and see how Tracking Protection would work if the option becomes available for all Firefox tabs, not just those opened in Private Browsing.

Submission + - Researcher find D-Link DWR-932 router is "chock full of holes"

JustAnotherOldGuy writes: Security researcher Pierre Kim has unearthed a bucketload of vulnerabilities in the LTE router/portable wireless hotspot D-Link DWR-932. Kim found the latest available firmware has these vulnerabilities:

- Two backdoor accounts with easy-to-guess passwords that can be used to bypass the HTTP authentication used to manage the router
- A default, hardcoded Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) PIN, as well as a weak WPS PIN generation algorithm
- Multiple vulnerabilities in the HTTP daemon
- Hardcoded remote Firmware Over The Air credentials
- Lowered security in Universal Plug and Play, and more.

“At best, the vulnerabilites are due to incompetence; at worst, it is a deliberate act of security sabotage from the vendor,” says Kim, and advises users to stop using the device until adequate fixes are provided.

Submission + - Microsoft Abandons Modules, Reverts to Traditional Data Center Design (datacenterfrontier.com)

miller60 writes: After years of deploying cloud capacity in enclosures resembling shipping containers, Microsoft has updated its data center design, returning to a more traditional data hall with a slab floor and hot-aisle containment. The new Generation 5 design also uses a fan wall to manage airflow through the server rooms. The redesign arrives as Microsoft’s cloud computing business is experiencing rapid growth, as the company continues to both build its own data centers and also leasing third-party "wholesale" IT space. Microsoft says the previous modular design, which it had used since 2008, was extremely efficient but it couldn't manufacture the enclosures fast enough to keep pace with its cloud deployments.

Submission + - Rosetta spacecraft prepares to land on comet, solve lingering mysteries (sciencemag.org)

sciencehabit writes: All good things must come to an end, and so it will be tomorrow when the Rosetta spacecraft makes its planned soft landing onto the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the culmination of 2 years of close-up studies. Solar power has waned as 67P’s orbit takes it and Rosetta farther from the sun, and so the mission team decided to go on a last data-gathering descent before the lights go out. This last data grab is a bonus after a mission that is already changing theorists’ views about how comets and planets arose early in the solar system. Several Rosetta observations suggest that comets form not from jolting mergers of larger cometesimals, meters to kilometers across, but rather from the gentle coalescence of clouds of pebbles. And the detection of a single, feather-light, millimeter-sized particle—preserved since the birth of the solar system—should further the view of a gentle birth.

Submission + - Our Cell Phone Alerts Will Be Hacked (backchannel.com)

mirandakatz writes: The wireless emergency alert that went out to New Yorkers' cell phones last week after the Chelsea bombing kicked off a new flurry of conversation about the system—while some, like the NYPD, hailed the system as the future of policing, others, like Chuck Schumer, called for the FCC to modernize the currently retro technology. At Backchannel, Peter Moskowitz looks at the vulnerabilities in the system, and uncovers a chilling truth: as long as these systems have existed, they've been hacked, and it's only a matter of time before our cell phones get pinged with false alarms of tsunamis or zombie attacks. And that has the potential to incite mass panic.

Submission + - The Yahoo Hackers Weren't State-Sponsored, Security Firm Says (csoonline.com)

itwbennett writes: After Yahoo raised eyebrows in the security community with its claim that state-sponsored hackers were responsible for the history-making breach, security firm InfoArmor now says it has evidence to the contrary. InfoArmor claims to have acquired some of the stolen information as part of its investigation into 'Group E,' a team of five professional hackers-for-hire believed to be from Eastern Europe. The database that InfoArmor has contains only 'millions' of accounts, but it includes the users' login IDs, hashed passwords, mobile phone numbers and zip codes, said Andrew Komarov, InfoArmor's chief intelligence officer. Earlier this week, Chase Cunningham, director of cyber operations at security provider A10 Networks called Yahoo's claim of state-sponsored actors a convenient, if trumped up, excuse: 'If I want to cover my rear end and make it seem like I have plausible deniability, I would say 'nation-state actor' in a heartbeat.'

Submission + - Deep Space Network glitches worry scientists (sciencemag.org)

sciencehabit writes: Earlier this year, the Cassini spacecraft screwed up an orbital maneuver at Saturn because of a problem with its radio connection to Earth. The incident was one of several recent glitches in the Deep Space Network (DSN), NASA’s complex of large radio antennas in California, Spain, and Australia. For more than 50 years, the DSN has been the lifeline for nearly every spacecraft beyond Earth’s orbit, relaying commands from mission control and receiving data from the distant probe. On 30 September, in a meeting at NASA headquarters, officials will brief planetary scientists on the network’s status. Many are worried, based on anecdotal reports, that budget cuts and age have taken a toll that could endanger the complex maneuvers that Cassini and Juno, a spacecraft now at Jupiter, will require over the next year.

Submission + - Mozilla Trials Native Firefox Ad Blocking Tools For All 1

Mickeycaskill writes: Mozilla could add a degree of native ad blocking to Firefox in a future release if a test of the ‘Tracking Protection’ feature in the browser is successful.

Tracking Protection arrived with Firefox 42 last November, giving users control over what types of data third parties received from their browsing. This could mean certain online advertisements might not display properly.

However until now, Tracking Protection has been limited to private browsing. Mozilla is looking at extending this protection to all tabs but first needs to see where the feature “breaks” the web – this includes ads.

To achieve this, it is inviting users to participate in a ‘Test Pilot’, a scheme which sees Firefox users test experimental features in the early stage of development.

Submission + - Fears of a Hacked Election May Keep 15 Million Voters Away from Polls (carbonblack.com)

rmurph04 writes: According to a survey conducted by security firm Carbon Black, more than one in five registered U.S. voters may stay home on Election Day because of fears about cybersecurity and vote tampering. Respondents believe a U.S. insider threat poses the most risk (28 percent), followed by Russian hackers (17 percent) and then the candidates themselves (15 percent), the survey found.

Submission + - The Psychological Reasons Behind Risky Password Practices (helpnetsecurity.com)

Orome1 writes: Despite high-profile, large-scale data breaches dominating the news cycle – and repeated recommendations from experts to use strong passwords – consumers have yet to adjust their own behavior when it comes to password reuse. A global Lab42 survey highlights the psychology around why consumers develop poor password habits despite understanding the obvious risk, and suggests that there is a level of cognitive dissonance around our online habits. When it comes to online security, personality type does not inform behavior, but it does reveal how consumers rationalize poor password habits.

Submission + - European Commission To Launch Initiative Against Data Localization (thestack.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The European Commission has announced that it will launch a new project later this year intended to curb the increasing tendency towards regional data governance policies, concerned that it data cannot flow freely throughout the union, innovation will be stifled. Speaking at Digital Assembly 2016 in Bratislava, Vice President for the Digital Single Market in the European Commission Andrus Ansip commented that ‘if data does not flow freely across the EU, then the growth potential of the digital economy in Europe will be limited’. Ansip criticized those who advocate cross-border data restrictions on the grounds of data protection and security, in effect criticizing the very notion of data governance which is currently forcing Microsoft to establish local data centres for its Azure and Office 365 offerings in order to comply with governmental edicts regarding the location of information storage. Ansip said: "“The vast majority of these constraints have nothing to do with protecting privacy or fighting security threats. Let me give you few examples. Why should company data, tax data, book-keeping data, financial and all health data be stored forcibly inside particular borders in a single market? What the public authorities need, in terms of data, is access rather than storage."

Submission + - International Space Station to Trial Aussie-designed Ion Thruster (abc.net.au)

theweatherelectric writes: Barney Porter from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation writes, "An Australian-designed rocket propulsion system is heading to the International Space Station (ISS) for a year-long experiment that ultimately could revolutionise space travel. The technology could be used to power a return trip to Mars without refuelling, and use recycled space junk for the fuel. Former University of Sydney student, Dr Paddy Neumann — now of Neumann Space — and two co-inventor professors from his alma mater have developed an ion thruster that could replace the current chemical-based rocket propulsion technology, which requires huge volumes of fuel to be loaded onto a spacecraft."

Submission + - Comey Denies Clinton Email 'Reddit' Cover-Up (politico.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The FBI concluded that a computer technician working on Clinton's email was not engaged in an illicit cover-up when he asked on the Reddit website for a tool that could delete a "VIP" email address throughout a large file, FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday. Republican lawmakers have suggested that the July 2014 Reddit post from a user believed to be Platte River Networks specialist Paul Combetta showed an effort to hide Clinton's emails from investigators.
However, at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday, Comey said FBI agents concluded that all the computer aide was trying to do was replace Clinton's email address so it wouldn't be revealed to the public. "Our team concluded that what he was trying to do was when they produced emails not have the actual address but have some name or placeholder instead of the actual dot-com address in the 'From:' line," Comey said. Comey said he wasn't sure whether the FBI knew about the Reddit posting when prosecutors granted Combetta immunity to get statements from him about what transpired. However, he added that such a deletion wouldn't automatically be considered an effort to destroy evidence. "Not necessarily ... It would depend what his intention was and why he wanted to do it," the FBI director said.
