I guess you read the book on it too? Platform Embedded Security Technology Revealed: Safeguarding the Future of Computing with Intel Embedded Security and Management Engine
The Guardian reporting on tech seems not to be good. They reported that Windows 10 installed automatically, when actually it was an update to an installation of Windows 10 that already existed.
The Twitch stream clearly shows that he had Windows 10 installed already.
It then shows him looking for a way to delay the upgrade...
Due to their original design and the use of Objective C, yes.
Their screening process consists of scanning code for using "undocumented" system calls that are restricted for Apple's use only.
Obfuscate those system call strings and you have now bypassed the screening process (ala: XcodeGhost)
Too bad they can't stop it, until they move every app to Swift (now you know why they created a new language).
Even if they could crack every system call string alteration an app could do, the app could request the system call string from a server, and execute it on the fly and get around the scan.
There is probably more to the screening process, but I am doubting there is much more to it.
If the statement "first successful collision attack" were true, then I would put money into that Kickstarter.
But, if you follow the links, you'll find that they only partially succeeded on the collision in just the compression section of SHA-1. There's a lot more work to be done to make this into an actual SHA-1 collision. Their estimate of a full collision by the end of the year is overly optimistic.
The Kickstarter would have some cash, that would be quickly drained without a full collision in sight. So, I'll have to pass on giving it any of my cash.
The Adblock Browser on IOS makes Slashdot readable on iPhones (and I assume Android).
They just released it last week. I stopped reading on mobile for the same reason. Now I can do it again.
Be sure to search for "Adblock Browser" in Apple's horrendous search for their app store.

A spam email that went to the Inbox stating that Yahoo! was going to close all inactive accounts if you did not click on this link and log in was probably how the attacker got the passwords. The link went to one of those off-shore URLs that we should all avoid.
Phishing is still alive and well.
And there are a lot of gullible people to phish for.
Don't hold your breath for LEDs, they are very expensive, produce poor color in comparison to incandescent, and last the same amount of time as incandescent.
If you use LEDs, you'll be paying 10x for your bulbs, and the energy savings don't cover that cost.
I've been stockpiling bulbs, I should be good for 5-8 years now. Maybe by then there will be something better than the current alternatives.
On most of my systems, Java has been uninstalled. One system has it installed, but the browsers are not allowed to use it.
I haven't found a site that requires Java that I need yet. If I find one, I'll probably look for an alternative, or temporarily enable Java.
That's all I need a "universal" flu shot to make me universally sick for 2 months afterwards.
I'll take my chances, 10 years of avoiding the flu shot, 10 years without catching more than a cold.
I was blocking 3rd party cookies, until my (required, no alternative) mail order medication site stopped working due to an "upgrade" they made.
I had to turn off 3rd party cookie blocking to log in.
If 3rd party cookie blocking is enabled by default I hope there is a way to turn it off for the 1 site, or all sites if I need to.
Otherwise I will have to use the insecure IE for their site.
Last few time I got a seasonal flu shot I got sick for 2 weeks. So I stopped getting them.
So if I get the Universal shot, I'll get sick for...2 months?
Either way, I'll risk not getting the flu over a guarantee to be sick from the shot.
Paperwork can be faked. Quite easily.
