Independent researcher Troy Mursch said the leak is the result of a flaw in almost three dozen models of Linksys routers. It took about 25 minutes for the BinaryEdge search engine of Internet-connected devices to find 21,401 vulnerable devices on Friday. A scan earlier in the week found 25,617. They were leaking a total of 756,565 unique MAC addresses. Exploiting the flaw requires only a few lines of code that harvest every MAC address, device name, and operating system that has ever connected to each of them. … [Read more...] about >20,000 Linksys routers leak historic record of every device ever connected

Too little REM sleep during development is known to have detrimental effects on brain maturation, and this recent study provides new insight regarding the mechanisms that may be at play here. Without sufficient REM sleep during development, juvenile and adolescent brains may not be able to adjust the connections among their neurons to hold on to what they've learned. Similarly, REM sleep is known to help with learning during all stages of development, including adulthood. In both cases, lack of REM sleep prevents the brain from eliminating unneeded spines generated during learning and prevents the strengthening of critical new spines that make newly learned tasks stick. … [Read more...] about The brain uses REM sleep to cut unneeded connections
For the past several weeks, we have worked aggressively to uncover why people were having these negative experiences. This has included product testing, an exhaustive industry search, and discussions with many of our suppliers. Our tests all came back negative for food pathogens, toxins or outside contamination… Interestingly, we didn’t see similar complaints during the 1.5 formulation. This possible connection allows us to narrow the field considerably given there are only a few ingredients that are specific to only our bars and Powder 1.6. … [Read more...] about Amid illnesses, Soylent halts powder sales and zeroes in on bad ingredients
Still, after some annoyance, I was able to take an arsenal of tappables and build a one-story building with a roof and a stairway to said roof. That was my annoyance limit. Building a proper two- or three-story building meant dealing with much more obfuscating geometry, while attempting to dig deeper and carve out a basement was an utter chore, in terms of aiming my real-world lens and accurately interacting with specific underground blocks. Both of the buildplates I unlocked during the testing period were effectively shrunken by running water, by the way, so I didn't have a lot of space to hone my craft. Shouldn't amateur architects get more ground to practice with, not less? … [Read more...] about ’s closed beta: This augmented reality needs more augmenting
It's hard to get one of those IDs — only large, established companies are able to register — but as Wirelurker proved, you can always forge one. When Wirelurker delivered its payload, it used phony credentials to mark the new software as enterprise provisioned. That’s the iOS equivalent of flashing a fake FBI badge to get through airport security. Apple can disable the specific credentials that Wirelurker used, but the next generation of malware may try the same trick again with a better forgery or even hijack real credentials. And since any iPhone can install enterprise software, every iPhone is potentially vulnerable to the trick. … [Read more...] about The iPhone just lost its perfect security record — now what?
