A virtual private network (VPN) is one of the best and increasingly essential security tools to protect your data and your privacy. Whether for accessing a streaming video, a webpage blocked in your country, or to use the web more securely while on public Wi-Fi, a VPN offers plenty of value.But not all VPNs are created equal — some are downright shady. Universities in Australia, with the help of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), studied 283 Android VPN apps and found 38 percent injected malware or malvertising, an astonishingly bad result for apps meant to protect you — and these are just the bad actors. A further 18 percent bizarrely didn’t encrypt users’ traffic at all, leaving users exposed. Despite this, the report found less than 1 percent of users had “any security or privacy concerns about these apps.” It’s a jungle out there, and a frightening one at that. Don’t worry. We’re here … [Read more...] about What can VPNs do with your data?

If I ever get chance to design a phone/tablet I wonder how much efforts will it take just to find if it violates any patent?

When the Nintendo Switch first launched back in March, the snarky joke was that the only game worth playing on the console/handheld hybrid was the undeniably phenomenal The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild. While we loved that game, we also loved a bunch of smaller Nintendo Switch games that were getting ignored. So we launched the ongoing column Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda to highlight cool Switch games haters insisted didn’t exist. The follow-up to that Zelda critique was that the next Switch game worth playing was the then-distant, eagerly anticipated Super Mario Odyssey. Now, Super Mario Odyssey is here, bookending our Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda coverage. However, we’ve been so inundated with intriguing Switch indie games, games that supposedly aren’t real, that we haven’t had time to give them all a proper review. Instead, we’re going to celebrate them all at once. Here are a bunch of cool, recent indie games to play on … [Read more...] about Play These Nintendo Switch Indie Games After Super Mario Odyssey
The MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is the first major laptop that tries to replicate that dream — not with individually reprogrammable keys, but with a thin touchscreen strip that can do even more. It adds touchscreen buttons and ever-changing digital controls to the familiar set of physical keys, and it has the potential to remake the keyboard in a way we've never seen before. I've been using the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar for more than a week now, and I have mixed feelings about what it brings to the MacBook experience. In some cases, the Touch Bar’s usefulness is obvious and immediate. But in many others, it’s overly complicated or just plain unnecessary. It’s an addition that very much can improve every MacBook — but it’s going to take some time to get there, if it ever does. First, a short aside: two weeks ago, my colleague Vlad Savov published a review of the 13-inch MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar. That computer is nearly identical to the … [Read more...] about MacBook Pro with Touch Bar review: a touch of the future
In 2016 I noticed something odd on Twitter — without context or explanation, Andrea Shepard, a Tor developer, had posted a string of random letters and numbers. Some days later, news broke that the Tor Project had cut ties with Jake Appelbaum, a lauded activist and the most high-profile of their developers, in response to allegations of sexual harassment. Shepard tweeted again, revealing that the mysterious message was a SHA-256 hash of the sentence, “It seems one rapist is one rapist too many.” It was a veiled accusation, one that omitted Appelbaum’s name or the context of his alleged acts — a statement that only landed a punch when lined up next to the Tor Project’s official statement and the many accounts that followed. It could have been a Weinstein moment, but in 2016, his accusers were met with harassment from many quarters. Although Appelbaum had been a well-known missing stair for many years, the moment was a “controversy,” not a … [Read more...] about What happened when the infosec community outed its own sexual predators
