Why did Radiohead erase itself from the internet?

U.K. band Radiohead are known for doing things unconventionally, but they're also incredibly shrewd marketers who know how to build up hype for themselves and their music. Roughly nine years ago, for example, the bank shocked the world by announcing that fans could pay whatever they wanted for the album  In Rainbows  that was released directly over the band's website. Now it seems Radiohead is engaging in another zany stunt to promote its upcoming ninth studio album by completely erasing its presence online. FROM EARLIER:  ‘Captain America: Civil War’ hits $200M at the box office before U.S. premiere As  The Guardian points out , "a visit to Radiohead.com on Sunday offered viewers only a blank page, while the band’s six-year-old Twitter feed was also empty... on Facebook , nearly 12 million users 'like' a page with nothing on it." Radiohead have also been sending out leaflets to fans via snail mail, which suggests the band is trying to rely on old-school technology to build up hype for its new release. Maybe the band will have carrier pigeons deliver vinyl copies of the album to everyone who preorders it by contacting them over ham radio? At any rate, one of the better songs from Radiohead's  Kid A was called "How to Disappear Completely," and it seems appropriate to give it a listen in light of the band's disappearance from social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAF8D0ugyVk

Obama takes Supreme Court fight to Republican senators' home turf

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks at the White House Correspondents Association's annual dinner in Washington By Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday took the political battle over his pick for a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court to the home states of seven Republican senators up for re-election in November. Obama conducted interviews with local television anchors where he argued that Republican senators should hold confirmation hearings and vote on his nomination of appellate Judge Merrick Garland to the top court. "What my argument is: Let the American people see Judge Garland, let him answer questions, let them hear his responses," the Democratic president told WDAF-TV FOX 4 in Kansas City, Missouri, a market that straddles states where Senators Roy Blunt of Missouri and Jerry Moran of Kansas are up for re-election.

Emotional return as first U.S. cruise in decades reaches Cuba

U.S. Carnival cruise ship Adonia arrives at the Havana bay, the first cruise liner to sail between the United States and Cuba since Cuba's 1959 revolution, Cuba By Marc Frank HAVANA (Reuters) - Hundreds of tourists and a handful of emotional Cuban-Americans arrived on the first U.S. cruise ship to sail to Havana in decades on Monday, spilling onto the cobbled streets of the old city where they were warmly greeted by residents. It was another first for the two countries since U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro announced a historic rapprochement in December 2014, and comes weeks after Obama's visit to the Caribbean island.     Carnival Corp's Adonia, a small ship carrying 700 passengers, slipped through the channel into Havana Bay in the morning under picture-perfect skies, then docked alongside the colonial quarter recently visited by Obama. "I’m nervous and excited at the same time, I left Cuba 48 years ago, when I was six years old.

Nasty piece of Android malware monitors texts, browser history and banking information

There's a new piece of nasty Android malware floating around that Android users should be on the lookout for. Masquerading as a update for Google's mobile Chrome browser, the malware is hosted on webpages designed to look like they are official Google or Android landing pages. Originally spotted by the security firm Zscaler , the malware is designed to monitor call logs, browser history, text messages and banking information. Once installed, the malware logs the aforementioned data and sends it all back to a remote command and control server. What's more, Zscaler notes that the malware is capable of checking if a user has any antivirus apps installed, and if so, "terminating them to evade detection." DON'T MISS:  Time to cut the cord: $95 gets you a Fire TV and free network TV in HD for life So while user's should be extra vigilant about this malware, we should note that installation can only occur if a user turns off a default Android setting which prevents the installation of software from non-approved sources. Tom's Guide  notes : After downloading the APK file, users would need to disable one of Android’s default security settings which prevents the installation of programs from unknown sources. Once that’s done and the target gives Update_chrome.apk administrative access, the malware registers the phone with its remote server, and monitors all SMS messages and calls, which it sends to remote servers. If users open the Play Store on an infected device, the malware presents a phony payment information page for entering credit card numbers. After that data is entered, a screenshot is then sent to a phone number in Russia, which doesn't sound like a safe way to store your banking data. As if that weren't nasty enough, the malware is extremely resilient can only be thoroughly removed when a user performs a factory reset on their device. Moral of the story? The openness of Android is obviously one of its major benefits, but you might want to stick with the Google Play store or other approved storefronts for now.

Russian creator of malware ordered to pay $6.9 million

By David Ingram NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Russian man who spent about three years behind bars in the United States for creating the computer malware known as Gozi was ordered on Monday to pay $6.9 million to cover losses to bank customers but spared further U.S. prison time. Nikita Kuzmin, 28, could have received more prison time but was sentenced to time served at a hearing in Manhattan federal court, prosecutors said in a statement. A probation office had recommended a sentence of 84 months, although it said it was not taking into account any assistance Kuzmin provided to investigators, prosecutors said.

Hackers can break into your company using $700 worth of parts from Amazon and eBay

Hackers looking to break into companies could do so with the help of a $350 device that can be purchased online from Amazon or eBay, new research shows. By taking advantage of the way most employee ID badges work,  hackers could simply manufacture counterfeit access cards that would work just like the original badges. DON’T MISS: Time to cut the cord: $95 gets you a Fire TV and free network TV in HD for life Researchers from RedTeam Security showed Tech Insider how easily it is to clone an access card belonging to any employee by simply roaming around. The hackers did not have to steal personal information belonging to that person and instead used a much simpler trick. Using a particular device that costs just $350, researchers pretended to visit a target company. "[We] got the big, long range reader from Amazon," RedTeam Security consultant Matt Grandy said. "They're also all over on eBay." The attacker, posing as a student who requested a tour, carried the gadget in a seemingly harmless laptop bag that intercepted the unencrypted communication that takes place between an access card the moment it approaches a target. These work IDs use radio-frequency identification (RFID) to talk to doors and unlock them. Unfortunately, the data traffic isn’t protected by encryption, which means that it can be picked up by intrepid hackers armed with this device. Purchased from Amazon, the portable RFID badge reader can grab card data up to three feet away. When positioned close enough to a target, the device grabs the data from the card who’s trying to communicate with it and writes it on a microSD card. That means malicious individuals simply have to find a reason to be in the vicinity of a known employee to try to grab his or her credentials. The data is then transferred to a computer, where a $300 device called a Proxmark can write it on a fake employee badge. Using the manufactured card, hackers can then access any doors that badge is allowed to open. There are ways that companies and employees can protect themselves against such attacks. One of them is using encryption to protect RFID data. The other one is using RFID-blocking sleeves for access cards – you can purchase them on Amazon at this link .

Astronomers discover new Earth-like planets

An artist's impression of TRAPPIST-1 Three planets with sizes and temperatures akin to those of the Earth and Venus are circling a dwarf star 40 light-years away. The star in question, named TRAPPIST-1 after the telescope used to observe it, is weaker and cooler than the Sun at the heart of our solar system. "With such short orbital periods, the planets are between 20 and 100 times closer to their star than the Earth to the Sun. The structure of this planetary system is much more similar in scale to the system of Jupiter's moons than to that of the solar system," said lead astronomer Michaël Gillon of the University of Liège in Belgium.
