Vulnerability: Samsung-branded Android Phones Allow Bypass of Lock Screen

Secure Connexion

A vulnerability was recently found in Samsung mobile Android devices, OS version 4.1.2, that would give an attacker (unauthenticated users) the ability to circumvent the screen lock, viewing the home screen. It can also give them rights to run apps, send arbitrary messages to contacts, rack up illegitimate phone services, etc. It could also lock out the original user of the device.

Terence Eden posted a video about the Galaxy Note II:

World’s FIRST webpage ever created

The above link is the copy of the world’s FIRST webpage ever created. This copy of the original first webpage, created by Berners-Lee, is still published on the World Wide Web Consortium’s website as a historical document.The World Wide Web began as a CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) project called ENQUIRE, initiated by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 and Robert Cailliau in 1990. Berners-Lee and Cailliau were jointly honoured by the Association for Computing Machinery in 1995 for their contributions to the development of the World Wide Web. Based on the concept of hypertext, the project was aimed at facilitating sharing information among researchers. The first website went on-line in 1991. On 30 April 1993, CERN announced that the World Wide Web would be free to anyone.

A classic can be safely plagiarized since the concept of that classic has been known to all for a long period of time. In such cases, imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and it usually adds to the fame of the author. Shakespeare for example is still being interpreted in both his original and fit-to-suit-modern audience forms, and such a creation is critically and legally blameless.
