by Zylr

You notice nothing – but your photos can be downloaded by others

Did you know that IOS has a security hole that allows developers full access to contacts, pictures, calendar entries and much more? Very few know about the Iphone and Iphone are vulnerable, but Apple has an eye and is planning an update soon.
A few weeks ago, including Web site 9to5Mac about a vulnerability in IOS made ​​it possible for developers to download images from users’ phones – without their noticing. Soon the New York Times dig into the data and made its own investigation and then published.

By using an anonymous developer for IOS, they managed to create an application that was apparently harmless, but in the background could download personal information from the device as the app ran on. Everything was sent to a specially designed server.

Apple quickly gained knowledge of security hole and is currently working on an update of the IOS that clog it. At the moment there is no way to protect themselves, in addition to not install any apps at all – and how fun is that?

There is no information about the security hole used by the apps on the App Store, or if it’s only stores for jailbreakade units affected.

Microsoft attacked Google for going around the security of Internet Explorer

by Zylr

A major problem has broken out between Google on one side, and Apple and Microsoft on the other. The trouble is that Google is accused of breaking the settings in Apple’s Safari and Microsoft Internet Explorer to prevent users’ browsing habits. Google is said to pass the settings to target their advertising more precisely.

After the accusations turn back and now Google says that Microsoft’s security settings in Internet Explorer is outdated. Both Internet Explorer and Safari are preset to block third party cookies, cookies. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer do allow third party cookies if the site presents a policy, called P3P, which describes how the site will use them. According to Microsoft, Google trick the browser into thinking that such a policy has been presented.

– We have found that Google is passing P3P security settings in Internet Explorer. The result is similar to that Google does in Safari, writes Dean Hachamovitch, Microsoft’s director of Internet Explorer, in a blog post.

Google’s director of policy and communications, Rachel Whetstone, has now responded to the criticism in an email. Modern web features, such as Facebook’s like button would stop working if everyone followed Micrsofts policy.

Google, along with sites such as Facebook, have been openly critical of P3P, which is not supported by any major browsers more than Internet Explorer. Rachel Whetsone also referred to a statement from Facebook where they said that P3P standard is outdated and can not be used with today’s technologies. World Wide Web Consortium, which developed the standard, stopped working on it several years ago.

Window activation by mouseover / hovering

by Zylr

This isn’t for everyone, but you can enable a mouse mode in Windows 7 or Vista where just hovering over a window with the mouse will switch to that window.
In the old days, this used to be called the XWindows mode, and was enabled through TweakUI, but now it’s built right into Control Panel for everybody to use.

To turn this setting on, just type “mouse works” into the search box in the Control Panel, and you should see an item called “Change how your mouse works”.
( Swedish: sök i kontrollpanelen på: “ändra mus funktioner” )

In this screen, scroll down and find the checkbox for “Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse”.
( Swedish: Bocka i Aktivera ett fönster genom att låta muspekaren vila över det )

Have fun!

Android for Linux

by Zylr

Google’s operating system for mobile phones and tablets, Android, is based on the Linux kernel, but is in the current situation is not compatible with the current version 3.2. Instead, Google has chosen to create its very own version of the Linux kernel for Android as they develop internally.

The dual versions of the Linux kernel creates extra work, not just for Google but also for the mobile manufacturers who do not have full transparency in the process. Nor is it possible to run Android on a standard Linux kernel as user programs in Android will not compile.

Greg Kroah-Hartman, a former employee of Suse, but now employed by the Linux Foundation lets the other hand, to announce that it will soon change all that.

Starting with version 3.3 of the Linux kernel that is part of the Android-specific code is implemented, which means it will be possible to compile Android for the standard Linux. Is it the case, that means you should be able to run applications for Android directly on Linux.

Androids special functions for power management is however not yet implemented, but they appear to be coming in version 3.4.

– Almost all the code is already there. Version 3.3 of the Linux kernel will allow you to boot into Android without any modiferingar but without good features for power conservation. Version 3.4 of the kernel will hopefully have the power saving features that Android needs along with some other minor parts that can not be in version 3.3.

Since version 3.3 of the Linux kernel is still under development, it looks like we’ll have to wait for autumn’s Linux distributions have come out before we can run Android applications on Linux right from the start. Curious who can not wait can however download and compile the Linux kernel when it is released and get Android on the way.
