There's a solution to that problem that might benefit everyone.
Physics calculations are run on the CPU, the iPhone has a dual-core, the others tend to have quad-cores. If you have a racing game, your virtual car has to have speed, mass, collision calculations, direction vectors, rebound force, roll calculations and so on. The iPhone 6 CPU holds up pretty well in Geekbench though so it must be better at some kinds of calculations than others. There's an interesting article on the 3DMark site about...
I think most of the blame for linking to iCloud was the original uploader. When they uploaded it they described how they used iCloud logins. There's a pretty in-depth article about the events here:http://www.businessinsider.com/originalguy-the-icloud-hacker-who-leaked-naked-celebrity-photos-2014-9It says it was multiple people over a period of months. The mention of iCloud was in response to someone asking how to exploit that particular service. It says that about 30% of...
The code is setting the shell variable x to a function, it's just an empty one here, which is what the brackets are. The flaw is that it executes code that follows it rather than ignoring it or raising an error.I expect the reason nobody noticed it years ago is that very few people will assign functions to shell variables and if they did, they wouldn't write them wrongly on purpose. There was one guy assigned to look after the bash project and he might have been doing this...
Yes but that's always a concern because not everyone updates their servers quickly enough when vulnerabilities are found. There is a PCI DSS standard that some servers are expected to comply with that helps ensure they are secure but they check known vulnerabilities and the compliance isn't required to be daily - it wouldn't be feasible.Imagine that this kind of bug is discovered by a hacker who has been constantly looking for exploits, they won't tell anyone. They will...
If it gets Iris Pro graphics, that would be enough to qualify as iMac specs. The same chip as the entry 15" MBP will rival the highest iMac for CPU performance and even the 750M for GPU performance. It would be like the $1699 iMac with 3.1GHz i7 plus 1GB 750M but for around $799.
Not quite, there's a proof of concept here:http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/68122/what-is-a-specific-example-of-how-the-shellshock-bash-bug-could-be-exploitedThe wget command, which can download web pages is used to show switching a user-agent string with an exploit command on a CGI script. When the CGI script is accessed (assuming it has shell privileges), it executes the user-agent string (the exploit code). A single page being accessed can wipe out an entire...
There's another batch (part 2) been uploaded this week and there's again Blackberries and things being used and video formats not common to iPhones (although some will have been re-encoded) but the media still links to iCloud alone:http://news.sky.com/story/1340095/rihanna-latest-star-in-alleged-nude-photo-leakEven just the fact that all these nude pictures can't have been taken at the same time suggests that this is beyond just Apple's service. There were dozens of people...
It still needs something that hooks into bash in order to run. People seem to be targeting CGI scripts and using wget to switch the user-agent:http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/68122/what-is-a-specific-example-of-how-the-shellshock-bash-bug-could-be-exploitedhttp://blog.erratasec.com/2014/09/bash-shellshock-bug-is-wormable.htmlYou might even be able to exploit a server using Safari. In the develop menu, you can insert a custom user-agent. If you put the exploit...
They can only provide the data they have. The photos some people have posted have pretty minor bends in them that they could live with them. Most of the discussion threads are just discussion about the issue and not more cases.Apple should start advertising this way. Just promote something that could potentially spell doom for Apple and get Windows and Android users all excited and talking about Apple, not realising they're talking about Apple and ignoring whatever Android...
