  • How Google Map Hackers Can Destroy a Business

    Slashdot - Thu, 2014-07-10 14:07
    An anonymous reader writes with an excerpt from Wired about the one big problem that comes with crowdsourced data: enough eyeballs may make all bugs shallow, but may not fare as well against malice and greed: Maps are dotted with thousands of spam business listings for nonexistent locksmiths and plumbers. Legitimate businesses sometimes see their listings hijacked by competitors or cloned into a duplicate with a different phone number or website. In January, someone bulk-modified the Google Maps presence of thousands of hotels around the country, changing the website URLs to a commercial third-party booking site ... Small businesses are the usual targets. ....These attacks happen because Google Maps is, at its heart, a massive crowdsourcing project, a shared conception of the world that skilled practitioners can bend and reshape in small ways using tools like Google's Mapmaker or Google Places for Business. ... In February, an SEO consultant-turned-whistleblower named Bryan Seely demonstrated the risk dramatically when he set up doppelganger Google Maps listings for the offices of the FBI and Secret Service..

    Microsoft Settles With No-IP After Malware Takedown

    Slashdot - Thu, 2014-07-10 12:43
    Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes It's been a weird couple of weeks for Microsoft. On June 30 the company announced its latest malware takedown operation, which included a civil law suit against Vitalwerks, a small Nevada hosting provider, and the seizure of nearly two dozen domains the company owned. Now, 10 days later, Microsoft has not only returned all of the seized domains but also has reached a settlement with Vitalwerks that resolves the legal action. Some in the security research community criticized Microsoft harshly for what they saw as heavy handed tactics. Within a few days of the initial takedown and domain seizure Microsoft returned all of the domains to Vitalwerks, which does business as No-IP.com. On Wednesday, the software giant and the hosting provider released a joint statement saying that they had reached a settlement on the legal action. "Microsoft has reviewed the evidence provided by Vitalwerks and enters into the settlement confident that Vitalwerks was not knowingly involved with the subdomains used to support malware. Those spreading the malware abused Vitalwerks' services," the companies said in a joint statement. "Microsoft identified malware that had escaped Vitalwerks' detection. Upon notification and review of the evidence, Vitalwerks took immediate corrective action allowing Microsoft to identify victims of this malware. The parties have agreed to permanently disable Vitalwerks subdomains used to control the malware."

    Apple Gets Its First Batch of iPhone Chips From TSMC

    Slashdot - Thu, 2014-07-10 11:52
    redletterdave (2493036) notes that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) has shipped its first batch of microprocessors to Apple as the iPhone maker looks to diversify its overseas suppliers. Apple will continue to rely on Samsung for its microprocessors, but as the rivalry between Apple and Samsung heats up in the mobile and soon wearable arenas, the deal with TSMC allows Apple to be less reliant on Samsung and therefore have more leverage with respect to price negotiations for future chips, as TSMC has supplanted Samsung Electronics as Apple's chief chipmaker for iPhones and iPads. Since 2011, Apple has been striking deals with other display and chip makers around Asia to reduce its dependence on Samsung. As a result of this slowdown in sales, Samsung on Monday announced operating income for its fiscal second quarter had sunk to a two-year low, blaming 'weak' sales of low- and medium-end smartphones, strong competition and subpar demand. It may not be a household name like Intel or AMD, but TSMC is the world's biggest chip maker by revenue.

    Hacking a Tesla Model S Could Net $10,000 Prize

    Slashdot - Thu, 2014-07-10 11:11
    cartechboy (2660665) writes "It seems there's a new hack challenge set every week, but this time, it seems different. A challenge has been thrown down to hack a Tesla Model S with a $10,000 prize. The organizers of a computer security conference have set the challenge and it's open to anyone that registers for the Syscan conference. Taking place in Beijing from July 16-17, the rules for the hack competition haven't been revealed yet but a Model S will be on display for hackers to try their luck on. It's important to note that Tesla itself isn't involved in the competition in any official capacity, nor does it support the competition. If successful, this wouldn't be the first time a Tesla Model S has been hacked. In that instance Tesla was quick to warn people that making changes in the Model S' software would immediately void the car's warranty. Given the car's high-tech nature, it's no shock Tesla's taking security seriously. With $10,000 on the line, it'll be interesting to see if anyone manages to crack the code."

    Single European Copyright Title On the Horizon

    Slashdot - Thu, 2014-07-10 02:08
    presroi (657709) writes "It has been 13 years after the last harmonization effort of copyright within the European Union and this period might soon be over. After the election of a new European Parliament in May this year, Jean-Claude Juncker has been nominated to become the new President of the European Commission. He has named a unified copyright his top priority, a statement repeated today at a hearing before the Greens/EFA group in the European parliament (transcript of the question by MEP Julia Reda and his answer in German, Video recording). These statements are coinciding with the upcoming release of a report by the General Directorate in charge of copyright, of which an advanced draft has been already leaked to the internet. The report analyzes four possible policy options, one of which is the introduction of a Single EU Copyright title."

    The Future of Wearables: Standalone, Unobtrusive, and Everywhere

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 19:24
    jfruh writes Wearable tech has been a pretty niche product so far, and a widely derided one at that, but moves are in the works to help the category break into the mainstream. One of the biggest irritants is that most wearable devices must pair with a smartphone to actually connect to the Internet — but an AT&T exec says that his company will be selling a standalone wearable by the end of 2014. Google Glass has been a flashpoint of conflict not least because it's extremely obvious; its creator says that subtle, non intrusive versions are coming. And while everyone wonders what Apple's play in this space will be, it may be best to imagine what they're working on as a successor to their fading iPod line.

    The Video Game That Maps the Galaxy

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 16:58
    An anonymous reader writes "Video game designers and astronomers have been working different ends of the same problem: how to chart a galaxy full of stars. Astronomers start with observation, finding new and better ways to look into the sky and record what they can see. Game devs take the limited data we have as a starting point, and assume that everything else in the galaxy obeys roughly the same rules. They generate the rest of the galaxy procedurally from this data. But the information flow isn't simply one-way. As developers like David Braben improve their galaxy-creation models, astronomers can look at the models and see where they match (or not) with further observations, allowing them to improve their own scientific models in the process. "'The conflicts that show up are generally due to simplifications made in the models, for which new observations can provide improved guidelines. There's a continuously evolving and developing understanding of space, in which both models and observations play important roles.' ... Elite's model has expanded Braben's understanding of planet formation and distribution. Braben boasts that his games predicted extra-solar planets ('These were pretty close to those that have been since discovered, demonstrating that there is some validity in our algorithms'), and that the game's use of current planet-formation theories has shown the sheer number of different systems that can exist according to the rules, everything from nebulous gas giants to theoretically habitable worlds.""

    The Pentagon's $399 Billion Plane To Nowhere

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 16:36
    schwit1 writes with an update on the U.S. government's troubled F-35 program, the cost of which keeps rising while the planes themselves are grounded. A fire in late June caused officials to halt flights for the entire fleet of $112 million vehicles last week. Despite this, Congress is still anxious to push the program forward, and Foreign Policy explains why: Part of that protection comes from the jaw-dropping amounts of money at stake. The Pentagon intends to spend roughly $399 billion to develop and buy 2,443 of the planes. However, over the course of the aircrafts' lifetimes, operating costs are expected to exceed $1 trillion. Lockheed has carefully hired suppliers and subcontractors in almost every state to ensure that virtually all senators and members of Congress have a stake in keeping the program — and the jobs it has created — in place. "An upfront question with any program now is: How many congressional districts is it in?" said Thomas Christie, a former senior Pentagon acquisitions official. Counting all of its suppliers and subcontractors, parts of the program are spread out across at least 45 states. That's why there's no doubt lawmakers will continue to fund the program even though this is the third time in 17 months that the entire fleet has been grounded due to engine problems."

    Will Google's Dart Language Replace Javascript? (Video)

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 15:54
    Seth Ladd, Google Web engineer and Chrome Developer Advocate, is today's interviewee. He's talking about Dart, which Wikipedia says is 'an open-source Web programming language developed by Google.' The Wikipedia article goes on to say Dart was unveiled at the GOTO conference in Aarhus, October 10–12, 2011, and that the goal of Dart is 'ultimately to replace JavaScript as the lingua franca of web development on the open web platform.' A bold aim, indeed. Last month (June, 2014), InfoWorld ran an article by Paul Krill headlined, Google's Go language on the rise, but Dart is stalling. Seth Ladd, unlike Paul Krill, is obviously rah-rah about Dart -- which is as it should be, since that's his job -- and seems to think it has a growing community and a strong place in the future of Web programming. For more about Dart, scroll down to watch Tim Lord's video interview with Seth -- or read the transcript, if you prefer. (Alternate Video Link)

    Cosmic Mystery Solved By Super-sized Supernova Dust

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 15:10
    astroengine writes: 'How cosmic dust is created has been a mystery for some time. Although the textbooks tell us that the dusty stuff that builds the planets — and, ultimately, the complex chemistry that forms life (we are, after all, made of 'star stuff') — comes from supernova explosions, astronomers have been puzzled as to how delicate grains of dust condense from stellar material and how they can possibly survive the violent shock waves of the cataclysmic booms. But now, with the help of a powerful ground-based telescope, astronomers have not only watched one of these supernova 'dust factories' in action, they've also discovered how the grains can withstand the violent supernova shock. "When the star explodes, the shockwave hits the dense gas cloud like a brick wall," said lead author Christa Gall, of Aarhus University, Denmark. "It is all in gas form and incredibly hot, but when the eruption hits the 'wall' the gas gets compressed and cools down to about 2,000 degrees. At this temperature and density elements can nucleate and form solid particles. We measured dust grains as large as around one micron (a thousandth of a millimeter), which is large for cosmic dust grains. They are so large that they can survive their onward journey out into the galaxy (PDF)." The surprising size of the measured dust particles means they can better survive the supernova's shockwave. This research has been published in the journal Nature.

    A Brain Implant For Synthetic Memory

    the_newsbeagle (2532562) writes "People who have experienced traumatic brain injuries sometimes lose the ability to form new memories or recall old ones. Since many veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan suffered TBIs, the U.S. military is funding research on an implantable device that could do the job of damaged brain cells."

    How Japan Lost Track of 640kg of Plutonium

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 04:09
    Lasrick sends this quote from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists: Most people would agree that keeping track of dangerous material is generally a good idea. So it may come as a surprise to some that the arrangements that are supposed to account for weapon-grade fissile materialsmdash;plutonium and highly enriched uraniummdash;are sketchy at best. The most recent example involves several hundreds kilograms of plutonium that appear to have fallen through the cracks in various reporting arrangements. ... [A Japanese researcher discovered] that the public record of Japanrsquo;s plutonium holdings failed to account for about 640 kilograms of the material. The error made its way to the annual plutonium management report that Japan voluntarily submits to the International Atomic Energy Agency ... This episode may have been a simple clerical error, but it was yet another reminder of the troubling fact that we know very little about the amounts of fissile material that are circulating around the globe. The only reason the discrepancy was discovered in this case was the fact that Japan has been unusually transparent about its plutonium stocks. ...

    Dwarf Fortress Gets Biggest Update In Years

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 02:40
    An anonymous reader writes Dwarf Fortress, the epic, ASCII text-based, roguelike citybuilding game, just released its biggest update in years. The game is notable for its incredible depth, and the new release only extends it. Here are the release notes mdash; they won't make much sense if you don't play the game, but they'll give you a sense of how massively complex Dwarf Fortress is. It's also worth noting the a team of modders has recently released a new version Stonesense utility, which renders the game in 3-D from an isometric point of view. "[T]he utility relies on DFHack, a community-made library that reads the game's memory and can be parsed, thus allowing for additional utilities to render things while bypassing the initial ASCII output." If you're unfamiliar with the game, here's an illustrated depiction of an amazing story generated by the game.pdiv class="share_submission" style="position:relative;" a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Dwarf+Fortress+Gets+Biggest+Update+In+Years%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F1k4nSui"img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"/a a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fgames.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F14%2F07%2F09%2F0335213%2Fdwarf-fortress-gets-biggest-update-in-years%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"/a a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=http://games.slashdot.org/story/14/07/09/0335213/dwarf-fortress-gets-biggest-update-in-years?utm_source=slashdotamp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"img src="http://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"//a /div/ppa href="http://games.slashdot.org/story/14/07/09/0335213/dwarf-fortress-gets-biggest-update-in-years?utm_source=rss1.0moreanonamp;utm_medium=feed"Read more of this story/a at Slashdot./piframe src="http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discussamp;id=5381615amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"/iframeimg width='1' height='1' src='http://slashdot.feedsportal.com/c/35028/f/647410/s/3c50812a/sc/4/mf.gif' border='0'/br clear='all'/br/br/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"//abr/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"//abr/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"//abr/br/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/a2.htm"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/a2.img" border="0"//aimg width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/199109317517/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c50812a/sc/4/a2t.img" border="0"/img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/2o0DWhxyN9E" height="1" width="1"/

    The Billionaire Mathematician

    Slashdot - Wed, 2014-07-09 01:15
    An anonymous reader writes Dr. James Simons received his doctorate at the age of 23. He was breaking codes for the NSA at 26, and was put in charge of Stony Brook University's math department at 30. He received the Veblen Prize in Geometry in 1976. Today, he's a multi-billionaire, using his fortune to set up educational foundations for math and science. "His passion, however, is basic research mdash; the risky, freewheeling type. He recently financed new telescopes in the Chilean Andes that will look for faint ripples of light from the Big Bang, the theorized birth of the universe. The afternoon of the interview, he planned to speak to Stanford physicists eager to detect the axion, a ghostly particle thought to permeate the cosmos but long stuck in theoretical limbo. Their endeavor 'could be very exciting,' he said, his mood palpable, like that of a kid in a candy store." Dr. Simons is quick to say this his persistence, more than his intelligence, is key to his success: "I wasn't the fastest guy in the world. I wouldn't have done well in an Olympiad or a math contest. But I like to ponder. And pondering things, just sort of thinking about it and thinking about it, turns out to be a pretty good approach."pdiv class="share_submission" style="position:relative;" a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=The+Billionaire+Mathematician%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F1qhVTLb"img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"/a a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fscience.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F14%2F07%2F09%2F0148251%2Fthe-billionaire-mathematician%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"/a a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=http://science.slashdot.org/story/14/07/09/0148251/the-billionaire-mathematician?utm_source=slashdotamp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"img src="http://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"//a /div/ppa href="http://science.slashdot.org/story/14/07/09/0148251/the-billionaire-mathematician?utm_source=rss1.0moreanonamp;utm_medium=feed"Read more of this story/a at Slashdot./piframe src="http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discussamp;id=5381415amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"/iframeimg width='1' height='1' src='http://slashdot.feedsportal.com/c/35028/f/647410/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/mf.gif' border='0'/br clear='all'/br/br/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"//abr/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"//abr/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"//abr/br/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/a2.htm"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/a2.img" border="0"//aimg width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/199109314310/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3c4fe040/sc/36/a2t.img" border="0"/img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/k-ucpf3UgNA" height="1" width="1"/

    US Tech Firms Recruiting High Schoolers (And Younger)

    ShaunC writes: Is there a glut of qualified American tech workers, or isn't there? Some companies like Facebook and Airbnb are now actively courting and recruiting high school students as young as 13 with promises of huge stipends and salaries. As one student put it, "It's kind of insane that you can make more than the U.S. average income in a summer."
