  • We all love Apps! They are free, some are useful and many are soooo funny. There are thousands of Apps which means thousands of possibilities for attacks.About 130 million people in the US have such a mobile phone, in Germany, more than 50 percent has a smartphone; in the UK, the share is two-thirds. The mini-computers have become personal communication centers, digital assistants and life coaches, and they know all about their users… social contacts, details about the user’s behavior and location, interests, photos, payment details and passwords.
    Secret Services are happy about this. Specialized teams began intensively studying Apple’s iPhone and its iOS operating system, as well as Google’s Android mobile operating system. Another team worked on ways to attack BlackBerry, which had been seen as an impregnable fortress until then.Analysts are enthusiastic about the geolocation data stored in smartphones and many of their apps, data that enables them to determine a user’s whereabouts at a given time.A recent article in the Wall Street Journal tested 101 popular applications for both iPhone and Android. Out of the 101 tested, here are the highlights of what they found:- Number of those apps that transmitted the phone’s unique ID number to other    companies without consent: 65
    – Number of apps that transmitted the phone’s location: 47
    – Number of those who sent age, gender, and other personal information to online   tracking companies: 5
  • On a PCs you can delete cookies but you can’t do this on your smartphone.Many pre-installed Apps spy on you and your habits. Often you cannot delete them. On a PC you can!

    I will leave all these spyware-adroids, tablets, Ipods to those who belong to the addicted flock of sheep who cannot live without their smartphone.

    You need a tip how to be safe from spying? Oh, here they are:

    – Put your phone into airplane mode while playing games.
    – Don’t post on commercial social media accounts (Hello, Facebook!) while connected to cellular data networks.
    – Turn off Wi-Fi, GPS and geolocation on your phone.
    – Get rid of the smartphone.

Sexual App

Isn’t it fascinating? A simple app turns on the music on my kitchen-radio. Another app starts the hoover if there is any dirt on the carpet. My fridge just has the latest update and it orders milk, cheese or butter online  – whenever needed. My electronic maid does the cooking, she puts on fresh linen. Her audio-system and the integrated camera enables her to follow each of my commands. Whenever I need some fun, I plug in a latex-hand and a tiny dildo to my computer’s usb-port and it interacts to the chat in my favourite forum. A linguistic program analyses the chats and the latex hand with it’s smooth fingers does the rest.
.
It was getting dark and when I looked out the window I watched the new, sexy neighbor. Mmmhh… long hairs hold by a hair-band, nice hips… much better than any app or usb-driven tool. So I started to investigate. Google maps showed me everything about her property, another telescope-app was useful to get more information about her house and her security system.
.
Just when I went online to find out more information about her security system – some exploids or leaks – suddenly the bot I started popped up_ “Looking for hacking Security System Cherokee 69? This app cracks any version!”
.
I started the download and installed it to my android. It already was dark outside and in the house of the new girl with the hair-band all lights were off. Why not start now? I went to my pc and copied a fresh image onto my system to cover all tracks. Then I left my house.
.
The electronic watch-dog was no problem. The app found his MAC-address within 30 seconds. I changed his MAC-addresses and the dog had no idea what he was doing here. I took a stone and threw it away. The dog quickly run after the stone and never came back. 
hack1The door-lock was not that easy. I had to download the Linux-OS to my mobile. Then I started it on an Apache environment using an old PHP-version which enabled me to alter the source-code of the OS. Then I copied it back and… voila! The door opened.
.
The alarm-system was quite easy to hack. I changed the IP-addresses of the secret alarm to now pointing at a grocery in Hong Kong. It was most unlikely that they were sending a security team.
hack2.
.
So finally I was about to use the app in order to unlock her bedroom-door…. and much to my surprise the door opened! In the dim light I heard a soft, luring voice:
.
Welcome Sally! You never noticed my signs because you always were into computers. But I was sure you would notice my forged message to hack Security System Cherokee 69...”
.
I needed no more apps that night….

This was close, Earth!

The ‘Killer-Asteroid’ – which was discovered in 2004 – will not hit the Earth in 2036, I read a few days ago. Oh, well, I thought so I will continue to work until pension.

Chelyabinsk MeteoriteBut out of the blue there was a flash of light and then a loud explosion bursting windows across the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. A large meteorite detonated over the city on Friday morning, injuring almost 1,000. The disaster could have been much larger.

Could no one foresee that? So all this brilliant science is helpless. Such a meteorite can hit us any time, anywhere. If it hits the right person we should not worry but disasters usually never ask if they hit the wrong people…

The international community must work together, a leading UN scientist said. Oh, good! More meteors please! Perhaps this is a chance to stop all this idiocy around us! Wink

The Big Why

Amidst all our existential angst wondering why we are here, we humans may forget to ask a bigger question: why is the universe here? For those without a true teleological curiosity, religion often fills the void with the convenient catch-all … Continue reading
