Apple users put at risk by 3-week delay between OS X and iOS patches, researchers say

Apple exposed iOS users to security threats by taking three weeks longer to patch the same vulnerabilities in the mobile OS that it previously fixed in Safari on OS X, a former Apple security engineer said.

Security researcher Kristin Paget, who left Apple at the end of January for a position at Tesla Motors, strongly criticized her former employer?s software patching practices in a blog post Wednesday.

The researcher pointed out that many of the vulnerabilities fixed in iOS 7.1.1, which was released by Apple Tuesday, were the same ones the company had patched in Safari 6.1.3 and 7.0.3 for OS X on April 1. Many of those vulnerabilities were located in WebKit, the Web rendering engine used by iOS, the Safari browser and other OS X applications, and most of them had been found by members of the Google Chrome security team.

San Diego's SAP system has tripled workloads for some tasks, report says

San Diego?s US$50 million SAP system has ended up tripling employees? workloads for certain types of tasks, but the city has also failed to devote enough attention to training, according to a consultant?s report released earlier this month.

Purchasing and contracting staffers are unable to easily generate reports from SAP that are crucial to the department?s operations, and have become ?overwhelmed by the exhaustive and mainly transactional workload, resulting in burnout and low morale,? Huron Consulting Group?s report said.

?Most P&C individuals interviewed are frustrated by the time consuming and ?click-intensive? requisition process in the SAP system,? the report adds. ?Interviewees indicate that barring any additional time caused by approval delays, it can take anywhere between 20 minutes to a few days to process a requisition depending on how many line items it contains, a direct result of the SAP system as implemented.?

California phone kill-switch bill fails vote in state senate

A bill that would mandate a kill-switch on all smartphones sold in California failed a key vote in the state?s senate on Thursday.

Senate Bill 962 fell short of the 21 votes it needed to move on to the state assembly, chalking up an important win for the telecommunications industry. While the law would have been in force only in California, it could have ushered in such technology nationwide because of the cost of making a state-specific handset.

In an attempt to get it through the senate, bill sponsor Senator Mark Leno, a Democrat representing San Francisco, accepted two key changes: a six-month delay in the start of the proposed law to July 1, 2015, and a narrowing to cover just smartphones and not tablets.

Xapo is a Bitcoin debit card that works like a MasterCard

A company called Xapo is introducing a Bitcoin debit card that?s actually usable for everyday transactions.

By tapping into the payment network used by banks, Xapo will allow cardholders to spend their Bitcoins anywhere that something like MasterCard is accepted. A digital version of the card for online retail will be free, while a physical card for swiping at brick-and-mortar stores will cost $15.

Xapo already offers a Bitcoin Wallet, in which users can store Bitcoins for fast access. When the cardholder makes a purchase, a bank would confirm that the funds are available in the Wallet and clears the transaction. Meanwhile, as GigaOm reports, Xapo will take the appropriate amount of Bitcoin from the user?s Wallet and sell it on Bitstamp, which is currently the largest Bitcoin exchange.
