Critical OpenSSL Flaw Allows Hackers to Decrypt HTTPS Traffic

The OpenSSL Foundation has released the promised patch for a high severity vulnerability in its cryptographic code library that let attackers obtain the key to decrypt HTTPS-based communications and other Transport layer security (TLS)channels.

OpenSSL is an open-source library that is the most widely used in applications for secure data transfers. Most websites use it to enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) orTransport Layer Security (TLS) encryption.

However, after serious security vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL over the last few years, the crypto library has been under much investigation by security researchers.

The latest bugs affect OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2, which has been patched in new releases of OpenSSL, versions1.0.1r and 1.0.2f.

The team has patched two separate vulnerabilities in OpenSSL. The "high severity" bug, identified as CVE-2016-0701, addresses issues in the implementations of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange algorithm presents only in OpenSSL version 1.0.2.

Re-Use of Encryption Keys

Diffie-Hellman (DH) is a common means of exchanging cryptographic keys over untrusted channels, allowing protocols like HTTPS, SSH, SMTPS, IPsec to negotiate a secret key and create a secure connection.

However, the applications that rely on the DH key exchange algorithm generate ephemeral keys using only "safe" prime numbers, but servers that do this reuse the same primes by default, which makes them vulnerable to the key-recovery attack.

Attackers could exploit this flaw by potentially making multiple connections with a vulnerable server and searching for TLS server's private Diffie-Hellman key if the server was re-using the private key or using a static Diffie-Hellman ciphersuite.

However, OpenSSL has the SSL_OP_SINGLE_DH_USE option for ephemeral Diffie-Hellman in TLS. But the option was turned OFF by default that made the server reuse the same private exponent, making it vulnerable to this type of attack.

Fortunately, many mainstream applications, like The Apache Web server that rely on OpenSSL and use Diffie-Hellman, turns ON SSL_OP_SINGLE_DH_USE, causing different private exponents to be used.

OpenSSL said in an advisory published today that the team has turned ONSSL_OP_SINGLE_DH_USE option by default. You can go to OpenSSL official blog post to know additional details about the flaw.

Force to Use Weaker SSLv2 Ciphers

The "low severity" vulnerability, CVE-2015-3197 that affects versions 1.0.2 and 1.0.1, has also been patched in the latest release, which allows attackers to force SSLv3 connections through the weaker SSLv2 ciphers.
"A malicious client can negotiate SSLv2 ciphers that have been disabled on the server and complete SSLv2 handshakes even if all SSLv2 ciphers have been disabled, provided that the SSLv2 protocol was not also disabled via SSL_OP_NO_SSLv2," the team said.
However, the team said that disabling SSLv2 ciphers on your server will not help and that incoming client can still complete SSL handshakes with the server, thereby establishing a non-secure SSLv2 connection.

Remember Logjam Downgrade Flaw?

The project team said the Thursday's release also contained an enhancement to strengthen cryptography againstLogJam, an HTTPS-crippling vulnerability in TLS disclosed last May.

Logjam downgrade vulnerability allowed hackers to downgrade Diffie-Hellman-generated encrypted connections between a user and a Web or email server to use extremely weaker 512-bit keys that can be easily decrypted.

The previous patch had increased the limit of Diffie-Hellman parameters to 768 bits, but OpenSSL has now increased this limit to 1,024 bits.

Upgrade Now!

If you are using OpenSSL version 1.0.2, it's time for you to upgrade to version 1.0.2f. While those still using OpenSSL version 1.0.1 should install version 1.0.1r.

Among other recommendations, Thursday's OpenSSL advisory also warns that the patch may compromise performance, along with reminding users that support for OpenSSL version 1.0.1 will end at the end of this year, after which no security updates will be available.

However, Support for OpenSSL versions 0.9.8 and 1.0.0 already ended in December.

Read 12 Things You Should Never Try With Your andriod Phones

To All new smartphone user, there’s that thrill to do
everything, try everything, install every app. You better relax first and take it
easy, else you might ‘press spoil’ on your new
device. I decided to compile a list of things you should
never try as a new Android phone user.
Below Are Things To Aviod
1- Installing apps from unknown or untrusted sources
(trusted sources include, Google Play, Amazon App
Store, and F-Droid).
2- Installing an antivirus app.
3- Clearing your RAM constantly. This is equivalent to
switching off your car’s ignition after every stop in traffic. The car takes longer (or more effort) to restart-
same with apps.
4- Installing task managers. We only recommend
Greenify, here’s why.
5. Installing apps with clearly unnecessary
permissions. E.g a music player app shouldn’t have access to your contacts.
6. Rooting without careful preparation and research.
Only for men of great courage Like Me for Example.
7- Installing one or more battery saving apps.
8. Disabling apps you do not know their purpose
without researching first. Seriously, never do this, Because You at Your own Risk
9- Run away from Clean Master or any of it’s

in the first place.
11- Expecting a budget phone to have everything, or
expecting a higher priced device to be perfect.
There’s no such thing as a perfect device, and
here’s why?

12- Installing about without reading anything about

Facebook posts strong 4Q as company closes gap with Google

FILE - In this June 11, 2014, file photo, a man walks past a Facebook sign in an office on the Facebook campus in Menlo Park, Calif. Facebook reports financial earnings Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook is growing at an exceptional pace as it enters adolescence, propelling it into a better position to challenge Google as the Internet's most powerful company.
Facebook's fourth-quarter report Wednesday provided the latest gauge of the company's impressive strides.
It marked the first time that Facebook's quarterly revenue has surpassed $5 billion — more than fading Internet star Yahoo now generates in an entire year. Facebook's earnings also more than doubled to $1.56 billion, even as the Menlo Park, California, company invests heavily in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, Internet access in remote parts of the world and a mobile ad network for services other than its own.
The performance lifted Facebook's stock by $11.37, or 12 percent, to $105.82 in extended trading after the report came out.
Although Google remains three times larger by revenue, Facebook has been closing the gap as it sells more mobile advertising on its addictive social-networking app. And it's just beginning to mine revenue from its trendy Instagram service and a rapidly expanding video library.
This spring's debut of the Oculus Rift headset, part of the virtual-reality technology that Facebook bought for $2 billion in 2014, could open another lucrative market. Google is now hiring more virtual-reality specialists, a sign that is trying to catch up with Facebook in a still-nascent field that could transform computing.
Social networking remains Facebook's foundation. The service picked up another 46 million users during the final three months of last year to expand its worldwide audience to 1.59 billion users.
"I'm excited about our progress and the chance to build something great for the future," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told analysts in a Wednesday conference call.
Google, now a part of the recently created Alphabet Inc., is thriving too, with more than 1 billion users on its search engine as well as its YouTube video site and its Android software for mobile devices. That makes it unlikely that Facebook will topple Google anytime soon.
Powered by the world's dominant Internet search engine, Google still sells the most digital advertising by a wide margin. Just how much more will be disclosed Monday, when Alphabet is scheduled to announced its fourth-quarter earnings. Alphabet is expected to report fourth-quarter revenue of nearly $17 billion, after subtracting ad commissions, nearly triple what Facebook generated during the same three-month period.
But consider this: Facebook will be turning 12 years old next week and it just posted revenue of $5.8 billion in its latest quarter. At the same stage of its existence in September 2010, Google's net revenue stood at $5.5 billion.
What's more, Facebook's revenue is climbing at a more rapid clip than Google's was at a comparable stage. Facebook's revenue in the past quarter represented a 52 percent increase from the same time a year ago. When it turned 12 years old, Google's quarterly net revenue rose 25 percent from the previous year.
In another sign of Facebook's progress, its share of the digital advertising market rose from 8 percent in 2014 to 10 percent worldwide last year, according to the research firm eMarketer Inc. Google's share shrank from 32 percent in 2014 to 30 percent last year.
That's still a lot of ground for Facebook to make up, but it's not impossible, given the digital dossiers that it has compiled about its users' passions, friendships and other services that they visit while signed into the social-networking service.
All that data could help Facebook deliver ads tailored for each individual's interests even better than Google has done by analyzing search requests, emails and people's locations, eMarketer analyst Debra Aho Williamson said.
"I wouldn't underestimate Facebook," Williamson said. "They have shaken up multiple types of businesses and completely changed the way that people communicate."
Google knows better than to dismiss the threat posed by Facebook. After all, when it went public in 2004, Google was still smaller than Yahoo. It didn't take long for Google to trounce Yahoo, partly because its rival focused on being on an all-purpose destination while overlooking the lucrative business of search advertising. By contrast, Google has been vigilant about protecting its search business while developing YouTube, Android and other popular products such as Gmail and the Chrome browser.
Investors are betting on both companies. Facebook's stock climbed 34 percent last year, while Alphabet's stock (formerly Google's) surged 47 percent. Meanwhile, the Standard & Poor's index dipped 1 percent.
"Some people have been wondering if Facebook wins, does that mean Google loses?" said Rosenblatt Securities analyst Martin Pyykkonen. "For now, I think both of these stories can win. They are the two big gorillas in digital advertising."

Watch Your Tap: Ditch the iPhone/iPad Crash Prank

It seems that people on Twitter are on a troll spree, so think twice before clicking on any link. Out there are hidden under URL shorteners such as bit.ly, Crashsafari.com is a link of a website that will bust your Safari browser and reboot your iPhone.
The prank is the work of a 22-years old boy Matthew Bryant who loves to experiment on browsers’ ability to “handle odd codes.” Matthew is currently working at application security in San Francisco. When asked about the link, he replied that he did not want to cause any harm, and it was just meant as a joke.
It appears that Crashsafari.com runs on java-scripted codes that overload the default browser of any device with infinite series of loops and self-generating string of texts, causing the device to crash. If you are using Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac and you accidentally click on the link, then your device will immediately start rebooting.
However, if you are using a desktop, then it will hang for a while. If you are using Chrome on desktops, Mac, or an Android device, then your browser will slow down significantly. The link works in a similar way as Crashchrome.com, which exploits browser’s history and adds many entries in a short span of time.
F-Secure Chief Research Officer Mikko Hypponen has assured that the bug only causes “denial of access” and would have no negative impact on the phone and it does not have the ability to run commands on devices.
According to him, many users might experience a repeated cycle. This happens because of the reload attempts by the browser to open the same link again. One of the solutions to break the chain is to switch on the airplane mode. However, it is better to be safe than sorry; it is best to avoid opening any link shared on the Internet, specifically those which are shortened, at least until the companies roll out a patch to fix it.
Last year in May, a similar issue generated a lot of hype. A text message was floated that caused iPhones to crash. Even though such links or messages do not cause any serious harm to phones, the interruption and rebooting is definitely annoying.

Warning — People are Sharing a Link that will Crash and Reboot your iPhone

A new prank circulating on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platform could crash your iPhone or iPad completely.

If you come across a link to crashsafari.com, you are advised not to open it on your iPhone, iPad or even Macs. Doing so will cause Safari application to crash, potentially causing your Apple device to restart.

In case, you want to try this out, justclick here to visit the website and watch what happens. Currently, people are spreading the link to CrashSafari.com via Twitter using a URL shortener, and users are tricked into visiting the site without being knowing.

How does this Prank Work?

The prank website (crashsafari.com) generates a ridiculously long, and increasing string of characters and then overloads this text string in the address bar of Apple's default Safari browser.

CrashSafari site's code is very simple and includes:
  • A Header Title that you will never actually see because the browser crashes.
  • A small piece of JavaScript that calls the HTML5 History API thousands of times in a loop, potentially causing Safari to freeze.

Android Users are Vulnerable Too

Safari struggles to process the long string, causing the iPhone to heat up, crash and then reboot.

This same thing happens on iPads that also has Safari browser. However, even Android devices that run Chrome on it heat up and become sluggish, while visiting this website.

Desktop and Laptops Are Affected Too

Even desktop and laptop computers are also affected by this bug, but to a lesser degree depending on system's processing power. Visiting the website will cause Safari on a Mac to crash, showing 'Application Not Responding'.

Chrome on Macs and other computers also becomes not responding. However, restarting the Mac or quitting Chrome on Android devices, as well as rebooting iPhones and iPads, clears the issue.

The 'hack' is otherwise harmless, but it will likely cause you to lose all your open tabs. It works on the latest versions of Apple operating systems, iOS 9.2.1, OS X 10.11.3, as well as some of the beta seeds.

Apparently more than 150,000 people have fallen victim to just one abbreviated link alone. Apple has yet to comment on the issue.

Windows 10's Cortana will remind you to keep promises made in emails

Microsoft’s Cortana virtual assistant is digging deeper into users’ email accounts in hopes of creating more useful reminders.
With the latest Windows 10 Insider build, Cortana will scan for commitments that users make via email, and then offer to create a reminder. For instance, emailing “I’ll get you this report by the end of the day” to your boss will create a reminder card in Cortana’s main menu.
As The Verge points out, this reminder process isn’t completely automated. Users will still have to click a button in Cortana’s menu to set the reminder, so they won’t be unnecessarily pestered by reminders they didn’t intend to create. And because the email scanning happens locally on the device, Microsoft won’t store any email data unless users click the “set reminder” button. Users can also disable the feature entirely if they don’t want email-based reminder cards to appear.
Beyond email reminders, Cortana is also getting a bit more proactive with calendar appointments. Users will get an alert if someone sends a last-minute meeting request, or if a request falls outside of the user’s typical meeting times. The idea is that users can quickly reschedule or adjust their routines in response to these requests.
Windows 10's Cortana will remind you to keep promises made in emails

Email reminders are launching today in the United States for Windows 10 Insiders, and the new calendar alerts are available in the United States and United Kingdom. The new features should roll out to all Windows 10 users soon, but Microsoft is still figuring out how to bring them to Cortana on iOS and Android.
Why this matters: Microsoft says its goal with Cortana is to mimic a real-life personal assistant, and says these new features are just the beginning. Compared to Google Nowand Apple’s Siri—both of which have ramped up their own proactive features in recent months—the focus for Microsoft seems to be more on productivity. That focus could help Cortana stand out as Microsoft expands its virtual assistant beyond Windows devices.

A website in circulation as a prank on Safari users is causing the Mac edition of the browser to crash, and iPhones and iPads to reboot, reports said on Monday.

Web link causes Safari crashes, device reboots on iOS and Mac

Aptly named crashsafari.com, the site deliberately overwhelms the browser with a self-generating text string in the address bar, according to The Guardian. This can not only force iOS devices to reboot, but lead them to heat up beforehand as their processors struggle to keep up.

Using Google's Chrome browser to visit the site will reportedly avoid crashes or reboots, whether on Android, Mac, or Windows, but still result in serious slowdowns, as well as overheating on Android devices.

The problem is being exacerbated by the use of link shortening services, which can disguise the link.

The site so far appears to be a gag instead of malicious. Other forms of crash-generating code can sometimes by used by hackers as a way of hijacking a device.

Apple devices recovering from a crash or reboot will reportedly function as normal.

Update: According to a follow-up report from iMore, Apple is aware of the crash issue and is looking into a fix.

Google to Speed Up Chrome for Fast Internet Browsing

Google is planning to make Chrome faster in order to provide its users fast Internet browsing experience.

Thanks to a new, open-source data and web compression algorithm for the Internet called Brotli, which Google announced last year to boost its web page performance.

With Brotli, Google will speed up Chrome and users could get a significant performance boost in coming months.

Google introduced Brotli last September and claimed that the new algorithm is a "whole new data format"that could reduce file sizes by up to 26 percent higher than Zopfli, the company's three-year-old web compression technology.

Net result – Fast Internet Browsing

In a post on Google+ on Tuesday, web performance engineer at Google Ilya Grigorik announced that the new algorithm is coming to Chrome soon, which will change the way files are compressed, improving loading speeds by a quarter.

Besides faster loading speeds, Brotli also have additional benefits for smartphone users, which includes:
  • Lower data transfer fees
  • Reduced battery use
Brotli is currently in beta testing mode, with a current status "intent to ship", however, it is likely to be rolled out with the next stable release of Chrome.

Advantages of Brotli

  • Brotli outperforms gzip for typical web assets (e.g. css, html, js) by 17–25%.
  • Brotli -11 density compared to gzip -9:
  • html (multi-language corpus): 25% savings
  • js (alexa top 10k): 17% savings
  • minified js (alexa top 10k): 17% savings
  • css (alexa top 10k): 20% savings

Chrome to Speed Up Web Page Performance Over HTTPS

At present, Brotli is restricted to HTTPS connections, and if you are curious to see Brotli in action, you can activate the feature in Chrome Canary, which is Google's browser for testing new features.

Thereby, you can carry out internet speed test with the help of various website performance testing tools to know what difference Brotli makes to your Internet browsing experience.

So, Get Ready to Speed Up Chrome and make your web page performance faster.

Critical iOS Flaw allowed Hackers to Steal Cookies from Devices

Apple has patched a critical vulnerability in its iOS operating system that allowed criminal hackers to impersonate end users' identities by granting read/write access to website's unencrypted authentication cookies.

The vulnerability was fixed with the release of iOS 9.2.1 on Tuesday, almost three years after it was first discovered and reported to Apple.

The vulnerability, dubbed "Captive Portal" bug, was initially discovered byAdi Sharabani and Yair Amit from online security company Skycure and privately reported to Apple in June 2013.

Here's How the Vulnerability Worked

The vulnerability caused due to the way iOS handles Cookie Stores at Captive Portals, generally a login page that requires users to authenticate themselves before connecting to the free or paid public Wi-Fi hotspots when they are first joining.

So, when a user with a vulnerable iPhone or iPad connects to a captive-enabled network (sample page shown in the screenshot below) – typically at coffee shops, hotels, and airports – a login window is displayed showing terms and conditions over a standard, unencrypted HTTP connection.

Critical iOS Flaw allowed Hackers to Steal Cookies from Devices

Once accepted, the affected user is able to browse the Internet normally, but the embedded browser shares its unencrypted cookie store with the Safari browser.

According to a blog post published by Skycure on Wednesday, this shared resource allowed hackers to create their own fake captive portal and associate it with the Wi-Fi network, enabling them to steal virtually any unencrypted cookie stored on the device when an affected iOS device is connected.

Here's the List of Attacks a Hacker can Perform

According to researchers, this captive portal vulnerability allows an attacker to:
  • Perform an Impersonation Attack – Attackers could steal users' unencrypted (HTTP) cookies associated with a website of their choice, allowing them to impersonate the victim's identity on the particular website.
  • Perform a Session Fixation Attack – This means, logging the victim into an attacker-controlled account (because of the shared Cookie Store). When the victims browse to the affected site via the Safari mobile browser, they'll be logged into the hacker's account instead of their own.
  • Perform a Cache-Poisoning Attack on the websites of the attacker's choice (by returning an HTTP response with caching headers). In this way, the attacker could execute malicious JavaScript every time the victim connects to that website in the future via the Safari mobile browser.

Patch Your Device Right Now!

The flaw affected iPhone 4S and iPad 2 devices and later. However, the vulnerability has been resolved with the release of iOS 9.2.1 in which there is an isolated cookie store for captive portals that will keep hackers at bay.

Skycure says that this is the longest time ever taken by Apple to fix a bug, but the patch was much more complicated than it would be for a typical bug. Though, the company says it has no reports of exploits in the wild.

So, in order to keep yourself safe from such attacks, download iOS 9.2.1 as an over-the-air update from the Settings menu on your iOS device right now.
