For those very new to this area, please google SIM SWAP and discover a very nasty security issue with all phones we use today. At first glance the new security researcher might think I'm exaggerating. Do your own research and tell me you don't find this to be one of the most foul, nasty exploits I've seen in years. This exploit was recently used to highjack a writer's phone at https://www.zdnet.com/article/sim-swap-horror-story-ive-lost-decades-of-data-and-google-wont-lift-a-finger/ His case is still developing with loss of accounts, tax returns he stored on the Clouds, and a 25,000USD Bitcoin purchase. And we're not talking thousands of dollars in …

CryptoWall 4.0 the newest ransomware to date is been spread by Angler Exploit Kits. A new drive-by download campaign is to blame for this attack. Heimdal was the first to discover the malware nearly one month ago. It's also more stealthier than previous versions and also a lot stronger. This time the message is different and more filenames had been added to the list. Also users have to fork out $700 for the decryption key which makes it a hefty price to pay. Firstly the Pony Information Stealer scrapes the computer of usernames and passwords by scouring the victims computer. …

I am old enough to remember the Westworld movie which starred Yul Brynner as a malfunctioning robot cowboy. It also featured sex robots, androids which allowed paying punters to indulge their every sexual fantasy. Of course, Westworld was a big hit in 1973 and I guess it was only ever going to be a matter of time until that fantasy became a technological reality. Some 27 years on and the world's first sex robot has made an appearance in Las Vegas at, perhaps somewhat fittingly, the recent AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. The Roxxxy TrueCompanion is said to be more than …

With the investigation into the death of Michael Jackson still ongoing, and claims over the paternity of Paris Jackson hitting the headlines with the involvement of the chap who rose to fame as Oliver in the film way back when and then plummeted to obscurity, you might think that it would be pretty hard for a technology outfit to get on the Jackson media bandwagon right now. But full marks have to go to web promotion business uSocial for trying anyway. A press release dropped in my lap this morning which claims that uSocial, which amongst other things [URL="http://usocial.net/twitter_marketing"]promises to …

Facebook, home of the [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4346.html"]104 year old Frisbee Queen[/URL], would appear to have taken a disliking to large parts of Wales. You know, that rather lovely country which borders England and forms part of the United Kingdom. Wales even has a devolved Government in the Welsh Assembly, something the Welsh fought long and hard to get. No wonder, then, people are more than a little bit annoyed at discovering that Facebook now informs the world they live in England. It seems that people who live in places such as Cardiff and Swansea, very definitely in Wales, now find Facebook giving …

Amazingly, the 100 millionth Nintendo DS handheld video gaming console has been shipped. Since the original Nintendo DS launched way back in 2005, at least here in Europe, it has pretty much dominated the handheld market despite strong competition from Sony with the PSP. Nintendo tell me that, as of the end of December 2008, there were some 83 Nintendo DS titles which exceeded 1 million global shipments, and no less than seven titles which managed to exceed 10 million shipments. Brain Training anyone? Indeed, it was games like Brian Training which helped Nintendo to reach beyond the traditional young …

Super Mario Galaxy has beaten off the likes of GTA IV, Call of Duty 4 and Rock Band to win the coveted 'Best Game' BAFTA at the [URL="http://www.bafta.org/awards/video-games/"]British Academy Video Games Awards[/URL] last night. Call of Duty 4 managed to pick up a gong for best gameplay as well as best story and character, beating the unlucky if hugely profitable GTA IV which, despite getting no less than seven nominations, failed to win a single thing. It was nice to see Little Big Planet picking up a much deserved BAFTA in the artistic achievement category, and Steven Spielberg's 'Boom Blox' …

With Inauguration Day finally upon us, mobile phone operators across the US are preparing for what could be a bigger test of capacity than the traditional biggest strain on the mobile network, New Year's Eve. Hopefully the months of hard work, involving adding capacity and prepping networks to cope with the upsurge of voice, text and MMS traffic, will pay off and you will not find your self without coverage later on. Obviously, the Washington DC area is expected to take the brunt of the surge, so if you happen to be there here is some industry advice: Send a …

My youngest daughter got a Nintendo DS for xmas, complete with a bunch of cutesy games which seem to involve patting animals of various kinds. It is, of course, pink. Which has kind of summed up the DS, a handheld games console for the family which is all cuddly and inoffensive. All that is about to change as the DS goes X-rated. Yes, it is true, while mum has her brain training games, and the kids can save a Lego universe or an endangered animal, dad has pretty much been left behind. Until now.

According to the latest figures to be released, it would seem that as far as gamers in the UK are concerned Nintendo is the bees knees grabbing nearly half the market. The [URL="http://www.elspa.com/"]ELSPA[/URL] numbers show that the [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/22425/532/"]Wii[/URL] managed to increase game software sales by 112 percent over the previous year to hit a total of 20.1 million sold. Only just behind was the DS with some 19.1 million games. Add it all up and you get, if my math is correct, 39.2 million Nintendo games sold in the UK during 2008. Not bad, considering the total number of games …

Here in the UK, we take our video gaming pretty seriously. No more than at this time of year when more games are bought than at any other time. So the annual xmas sales charts are always much anticipated as a barometer of just what is winning the hearts, minds and wallets of gamers. To be honest, this year it looked as if all bets were off as far as which game would be top of the pops. Not least because Call of Duty: World At War has been sitting pretty in the number one position for no less than …

If you ever wondered just what it takes to look for aliens, then prepare to get informed.

Indeed, the [URL="http://setiathome.berkeley.edu"]SETI@home project[/URL] has been doing this for years by listening to space and scanning what it hears for signs of alien life.

John Tu is the President and Co-founder of Kingston Technology which just happens to be one of the biggest providers of memory products on the planet, so when he talks about trends and developments in the memory market a lot of people start listening. Especially when he does so against a backdrop of a global economic downturn that has hit the tech industry hard. "Too many companies producing memory chips have caused prices to fall over the last months and consolidation should help the industry correct itself" Tu admits. However, when it comes to those companies that can weather the …

Sex on the Internet is nothing new, in fact it has been one of the great unspoken drivers of ecommerce and ecommerce technology over the years.

The quick answer is no, at least according to well respected security guru and Chief Research Officer at F-Secure, Mikko Hypponen. The slightly longer answer is that dealing with organised crime on the Internet is not as easy as you might imagine, and bringing cyber criminals to justice can be a huge challenge. The lack of online borders coupled with the lack of local resources make tackling international Internet crime is hugely frustrating for all concerned. Apart from the criminals it would seem. F-Secure quote examples as varied as that of Jeremy Jaynes, a well known US-based spammer whose conviction …

If you were offended by that headline, or perhaps felt intimidated by it, then you are not alone. In fact, a new study published by the Journal of School Health has revealed that cyber-bullying is so common amongst teenagers who use the Internet a lot (so that's most teenagers then) that it suggests an astonishing 72 percent have fallen victim to just such an incident during the last year alone. And that's just the percentage of teens who both took part on this survey and reported the cyber-bullying incident in the first place. The true figure could be much, much …

Ever looked at something, done a double-take, looked again and yes, that is what you saw but your brain told you it could not be?

Researchers at the [URL="http://www,port.ac.uk"]University of Portsmouth [/URL]are creating a rehabilitation programme for stroke victims that puts them onto a treadmill which immerses them into a virtual environment. Apparently the device works by using a series of moving images which essentially trick the brain of the patient into believing they are walking more slowly than is actually the case. This, I am assured, somehow encourages them to walk faster and to walk further. Wendy Powell, the PhD student who has developed the software says that the early results suggest patients using virtual rehabilitation may experience less pain than traditional physiotherapy techniques …

The good old Federal Communications Commission has finally decided, and about time to, that download speeds of up to 200Kbps cannot be sold as broadband. While those people still struggling on dial-up connections would probably disagree, the truth is that such slow connectivity really does not justify being labeled as broadband. In fact, the FCC Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate has gone as far as saying that doing so had become "something of a running joke." As from now, then, ISPs in the US will not be allowed to get away with conning people into buying slow connections under the guise …

Or rather Massive Inc, a Microsoft subsidiary that handles in-game advertising, has said as much. Gamers were surveyed and the results suggest that they will happily accept such marketing mechanisms, indeed an example is given of an Adidas advert that was placed within the Major League Baseball 2K7 game - of those players that remembered the adverts, many said they actually enhanced the gaming experience.

How much would you pay for a pizza? Chances are not as much as the anonymous bidder who won the auction to relieve entrepreneur Chris Clark of the pizza.com domain. Clark invested in pizza.com in 1994 for just $20, and even allowing for his annual $20 domain registration fees he has turned a pretty healthy profit considering the domain went for a staggering $3 million. Funnily enough that's the same amount that vodka.com sold for in 2006. According to the [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7331042.stm"]BBC news report[/URL] Clark had hoped back in 1994 that buying pizza.com would help to get a contract with a …
