iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak, Now Down to Minutes!

If you’ve been paying any attention at all to the jailbreaking scene this passed month, you’ll know about the recent developments of the Evad3rs jailbreaking team. But for those of you who don’t know, here’s a rundown: Early this year, the current best in the jailbreaking scene (Pod2g, Musclenerd, Planetbeing, and so on) came together to finalize their efforts to make an untethered jailbreak that would be universal across all 6.0+ devices. And for the most part they have succeeded. I say for the most part, because there...

Game Boy meets Wiimote meets Android.

There are tons of great retro game emulators for the Android platform, put using the touch screen as a game controller is a lackluster solution. This fun electronics hack turns an old Game Boy into a case/controller for your phone. Courtesy of Chad Boughton, this hack merged the guts of a Wiimote with the case of an old Gameboy. Just clip your phone into the bracket in the top of the Game Boy case, link the two by Bluetooth, and enjoy a beefier and more tactile controller for your games. If you want the same experience without the destruction...

#WeWantAnOpenIOS, or so says pod2g.

#WeWantAnOpenIOS, or so says pod2g.

I really like the thinner and lighter iPhone 5 with the 4-inch display, but there have been many occasions when I’ve missed not being able to jailbreak it. When jailbreak developers release new tweaks such as Auxo – an awesome replacement to the app switcher, which would have been perfect on iPhone 5′s taller 4-inch display, I miss jailbreaking even more. Unfortunately, even though it has been more than three months since Apple launched iOS 6, there doesn’t seem to be any visibility on when the jailbreak for iOS 6 for...

Cisco VoIP phone vulnerability allow eavesdropping remotely

Cui, a fifth year grad student from the Columbia University Intrusion Detection Systems Lab and co-founder of Red Balloon Security, has demonstrated an attack on common Cisco-branded Voice over IP (VoIP) phones that could easily eavesdrop on private conversations remotely. The vulnerability Cui demonstrated was based on work he did over the last year on what he called ‘Project Gunman v2’, where a laser printer firmware update could be compromised to include additional, and potentially malicious, code.  The latest vulnerability is...

Holiday deals can really be hiding hacker surprises

It is that time of year which everybody loves. It is the holiday season and you will start to see a lot more people express good attitudes and wish everyone else a happy new year. As a matter of fact it may be hard to think that with all of this much goodwill in the air there is someone out there who is trying to take advantage of that. But the fact is no matter what time of year it is there are always going to be bad guys around every corner and they will try to stalk their prey at anytime. It does not matter what time of year it is, the bad...

Hackers, Governments are not standing to the side anymore!

We have seen for the past couple years the cyber wasteland become something that is not dominated by young ambitious hackers anymore. The age of the Wild West is over and the big boys want a piece of the action. With so many infrastructures connected to the web these days it is only natural for more powerful and interested concerns to take their skills to the web. We are seeing the beginnings of true cyber war and it is something that is not going to be stop anytime soon. In the past, what we have seen mostly is governments stay behind the...

Kindle Fire HD ROM, meet the Nexus S.

Custom ROMs are the life and blood of Android. One of the beauties of the entire platform is the fact that you don’t have to remain stuck with whatever the manufacturer of your smartphone or tablet had chosen for you; instead, you get to make your own choices, either in the form of stock-based custom cooked firmware, or the likes of CyanogenMod and AOKP, which are direct derivatives of the Android Open Source Project. However, the fun doesn’t just stop here. There’s another class of operating systems out there that have a certain...

Parenting, via remote controlled Drone.

Technology has completely changed the way parents can take care of their children. When I was a kid, there weren’t even cellphones, now, there are webcams that automatically send email or cellphone notifications whenever something happens in the house. There are cars that can transmit their position back to an iPhone — especially useful for parents of teen drivers. In other words, it’s easier than ever to keep an eye on your kids. Paul Wallich, a contributing editor at IEEE Spectrum has taken it to a whole another...
