VTech Hack Exposes Data On 4.8 Million Adults, 200,000 Kids

/. - Fri, 11/27/2015 - 11:30am
New submitter lorenzofb writes: A hacker broke into the site of the popular toy company VTech and was able to easily get 4.8 million credentials, and 227k kids' identities using SQL injection. The company didn't find out about the breach until Motherboard told them. According to Have I Been Pwned, this is the fourth largest consumer data breach ever. "[Security specialist Troy Hunt] said that VTech doesn't use SSL web encryption anywhere, and transmits data such as passwords completely unprotected. ... Hunt also found that the company's websites "leak extensive data" from their databases and APIs—so much that an attacker could get a lot of data about the parents or kids just by taking advantage of these flaws."

Swedish Court: ISPs Can't Be Forced To Ban the Pirate Bay

/. - Fri, 11/27/2015 - 10:26am
An anonymous reader writes: After years of rulings against The Pirate Bay around Europe, a Swedish court has now ruled that the country's ISPs can't be forced to block access to the torrent indexer. The case centers around copyright holders and an ISP called Bredbandsbolaget. The ISP refused to comply with demands that music pirates be cut off from internet access. When rightsholders couldn't get traction that way, they added Bredbandsbolaget to their list of targets. The court found that the ISP does not "participate" in copyright infringement carried out by its subscribers, and is thus not liable for any damages incurred.

Underworld Ascendant - An all time classic RPG overhauled prototype footage

Indie Retro News - Fri, 11/27/2015 - 9:46am

Earlier in the year we gave you the big heads up over Otherside Entertainment's Kickstarter success of the overhauled RPG of ' Underworld Ascendant '; a dungeon crawler that seeks to give the player the ability to progress through exploration and experimentation, rather than scripted solutions; a rekindled legendary game in the fantasy RPG series. Well those of you who pledged over $300 in funding had the chance to play the prototype, and as such, a member by the name of DawnrazorDCLXVI recently released a video play through!

Please note as we said this is an early prototype and does not represent the final build of the game.

Scientists Turn Gold Into Foam That's Nearly As Light As Air

/. - Fri, 11/27/2015 - 9:20am
Zothecula writes: Along with its use in jewelry, gold also has numerous applications in fields such as electronics and scientific research. It's a handy material, but – of course – it's also expensive. That's why researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a new way of making a small amount of gold go a long way. They've created a gold foam that looks much like solid gold, but is actually 98 parts air and two parts solid material (abstract). As an added bonus, the aerogel-type foam can also be made in non-gold colors such as dark red.
