  • Easily exploited Netgear router flaw discovered 2016/12/10

    NOTE: This is a developing story. See updates at the end.

    At least two Netgear routers, the R6400 and R7000 are vulnerable to a command injection flaw that is easy to exploit and could lead to the total takeover of the routers. This was disclosed yesterday, December 9th, and there has, as yet, been no response from Netgear.

    Documentation on the flaw, so far, has been poor. Most importantly, it's not clear, to me at least, whether the vulnerability can be exploited remotely, from the LAN side of the router or both. If it is locally exploitable, then using a non-standard IP address for the router should offer some defense.

  • Your own motion could one day power your cell phone 2016/12/09

    Looking forward to the day when you don't have to charge your cell phone or activity tracker?

    That day might not be as far away as you think.

    Researchers at Michigan State University have developed a device they've dubbed a nanogenerator that lets motion charge a mobile device or a wearable.

    A cell phone using this technology, for instance, would need no battery. Your own motion would provide power.

    "What I foresee, relatively soon, is the capability of not having to charge your cell phone for an entire week, for example, because that energy will be produced by your movement," said Nelson Sepulveda, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Michigan State University, in a written statement. "We're on the path toward wearable devices powered by human motion."

  • Michigan approves cars without drivers or steering wheels on its roads 2016/12/09

    The governor of Michigan today signed into law a series of bills that allows fully autonomous vehicles, including those without drivers and steering wheels, to begin using public roadways.

    Flanked by a Ford Model T and a self-driving Ford Fusion, Gov. Rick Snyder signed four bills as part of the autonomous vehicles legislative package that allows the operation of autonomous vehicles on Michigan public roads. Before, only testing of the vehicles by manufacturers was permitted.

    "As far as I know, Michigan is the first state to make it official that these types of vehicles can be used on public roads," said Brandon Schoettle, a project manager with the University of Michigan's Transportation Research Institute.

  • AirPods miss is not Apple's first holiday sales flub 2016/12/09

    Apple's inability to ship its new AirPods wireless ear buds before the holiday sales season wasn't its first misstep in providing product at the end of a year.

    Even so, one analyst discounted the damage done. "I think it's a minor blow to the brand, but not a big one, long term," said Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. "[But] if there are continued hiccups then this, of course, changes."

    When Apple in September introduced the $159 AirPods alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, executives said that the headphones would be available in October. But late that month, Apple confirmed that the AirPods were delayed. It did not offer a reason for the postponement or schedule a new ship date, instead saying, "We need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers."
