Weather.com fixes web application vulnerabilities

The Weather Channel has fixed a common web application security problem on its website that made nearly all links vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Wang Jin, a doctoral student at the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, found more than 75 percent of the webpages on Weather.com were vulnerable.

?Attackers just need to add script at the end of The Weather Channel?s URLs,? Wang wrote. ?Then the scripts will be executed.?

Wang posted his findings on the Full Disclosure forum, writing that the issues have been fixed. He wrote that he tested tens of thousands of links on Weather.com using a custom tool and posted a video illustrating an attack.

Early version of new POS malware family spotted

A security researcher came across what appears to be a new family of point-of-sale malware that few antivirus programs were detecting.

Nick Hoffman, a reverse engineer, wrote the Getmypass malware shares traits that are similar to other so-called RAM scrapers, which collect unencrypted payment card data held in a payment system?s memory.

That type of malware has been responsible for large payment card breaches at Target, Neiman Marcus and others, capitalizing on a common weakness in systems that experts say can be fixed with more robust encryption of card details.

Report: Microsoft will unveil Windows 10's new consumer features in January

Microsoft will take its Windows 10 message of "much better this time, really" straight to the people in January. Late that month, according to The Verge, Microsoft will hold an event to show off the consumer-oriented features in the upcoming major revision of its Windows operating system. 

Microsoft has a lot riding on Windows 10, which is currently in preview. Windows 8's shocking, take-it-or-leave-it changes caused many users to, well, leave Windows 8 (or not upgrade from prior versions). Windows 10, as far as we've seen in its beta iterations, is blending Windows 7 and Windows 8 to ease the experience for upgrading users.

Syrian Electronic Army posts hacking message on several news sites

A hacker group called the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) scared visitors to several news websites on Thursday by posting rogue pop-up messages saying they?d been hacked.

According to reports from users on Twitter the affected sites included those of CNBC, Forbes, the Chicago Tribune, OK magazine, the Evening Standard, PCWorld, The Daily Telegraph and The Independent.

Not all visitors to those sites have seen the pop-up messages, which read ?You?ve been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA)? and in many cases the incident was reported by mobile users.

SEA does not appear to have actually hacked the affected websites directly, but instead pulled off the attack through Gigya, a customer identity management platform used by a large number of brands. The group posted a screen shot on Twitter from inside the control panel for the Gigya.com domain at GoDaddy, suggesting that they had control over the account.

Fastest LTE speed will be out of reach for most users

LTE?s theoretical maximum download speed will increase to 450 Mbps next year?but the upgrade will be out of reach for most users, as many mobile operators simply don?t have enough radio spectrum.

The broadband speed users get depends on a myriad of different factors, but in the network it all starts with the amount of spectrum their operator uses. Future increases will be fueled by a technology called carrier aggregation, which lets operators treat up to three radio channels in different frequency bands as if they were one.

This month, chip maker Qualcomm and network equipment manufacturer Ericsson have been doing their best to let the world know speeds at up to 450 Mbps will be possible next year, with product launches, interoperability tests and a demo with Australian network operator Telstra.

The Weirdest Incidents Involving Wild Turkeys This Week

Wild turkeys were ?everywhere? on Cape Cod, despite having once been extinct in Massachusetts. The birds were also booming again in Ohio, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, and New Jersey, where turkey numbers had increased a thousand-fold since 1977, when 22 wild turkeys were brought in from New York and Vermont to restock what was then a virtually turkey-less state. A New Jersey biologist now assured the public: ?I think that they are here to stay,? and a local Op-Ed writer attributed the turkey?s success, in part, to polygamy.
