Driver: San Fransisco, Features Messy DRM

The PC video game industry has suffered a lot because of piracy. Therefore, game developers are becoming more and more cautious about their game releases. At the start, when there was nothing such as controversial DRM, all you needed was to download a crack for your favorite game and enjoy it by downloading it from P2P sites.

But the case is altogether different now. And leading in protecting the games with DRM technology is Ubisoft. Ubisoft had been really hard on PC gamers by protecting their critically acclaimed titles such as Assassins Creed with DRM.

Enjoy Fox Movies On Your Android Phone

20th century fox has marked another good step in the entertainment industry, bringing movie watching to the next level. Now you’ll be able to watch movies on your Android device with a new feature which Fox brings exclusively to you.

The word on the street is that FOX is introducing a new feature that would allow users to download Fox movies on their Android devices. However, the feature won’t work in a manner allowing users to directly download movies to Android devices, instead, users will first have to buy a physical copy of the movie, thus allowing him/her to download an Android-friendly copy of the movie to the PC which can then be loaded to Android device.

New Malware Turns Your Droid Into A Bot

Google removed around 24 applications from the Android Marketplace last week due to excessive Malware and virus problems. According to the North Carolina State University Blog, a new type of malware called DroidKungFu works like the previously removed DroidDream, although deadlier.

DroidKungFu works through a security bypass on the affected mobile device. The latest malware acts as a trojan (or a backdoor that gives hackers full control of the phone). Not only can this expose all user data, but it can also turn the phone into a bot, forcing the phone to do whatever the hacker wants.

Obama Reserves Right To Bomb Hackers

Has our President been hanging around with George Bush a bit much lately? One may guess that based on what Obama has recently said. In a personal foreword (link to webpage with PDF) to document International Strategy for Cyberspace, the President claimed that the country would preserve the character of cyberspace and reduce the threats faced. President O-bomb-a reserves the right to take military action against cyber-terrorists who attempt to hack into the U.S. government.

Over 5K Sites Compromised On Google’s Image Search

If you are using Google’s image search, for any reason, you may want to stop, immediately. Security experts have found thousands of sites compromised by code injection (malicious code that redirects users to fake antivirus applications). In fact, I’ve also been a victim of the Google image malware in the past and had to get a brand new hard drive because a reformatting did not work. What was I searching for? Simple tech stuff like laptops and cellphones. You’d be surprised how many types of images are compromised, but you can bet the most popular searches are the worst.

High Tech Used For Military Dogs

Although the U.S. military has a plethora of tools at its disposal, it seems that they are also using high tech gear for K-9 units. The SEAL team that raided Osama Bin Laden brought one of these dogs that was equipped with high tech gear. Although dogs are already used by law enforcement agencies, they often do not have many “features” that make them less susceptible to injury or more likely to succeed whatever mission they are set to conquer.

First Dynamic Firewall For Android, WhisperMonitor

There have been an increasing number of attempts of malware available to Android users. A lot of these applications are disguised as free apps and even if these apps have a five star rating, a low number of ratings can be an indicator that the app you are about to download is malware. That said, Moxie Marlinspike released the first dynamic Android firewall today called WhisperMonitor.

The firewall was specifically designed for Android phones and monitors all outbound connection attempts by installed applications and the operating system.
