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...
Apparently Schmidt and his wife have an open marriage, although the $8b+ he has might play a factor in how happy she is with the setup:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2377785/Google-CEO-serial-womanizer-Eric-Schmidt-spends-15-million-dollars-private-doorman-Manhattan-penthouse-totally-soundproofed.htmlhttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2105394/Is-Google-chief-Eric-Schmidt-selling-1-5billion-shares-fund-divorce.htmlIt's not all unattractive women he's seeing...
What makes you sure about it? People are going to be even more careful with their phones now.You have my commiserations. Not!There must be thousands of experts that have posted in just the last couple of days. Maybe that scientist in the original video can apply.
I actually think it sets the right tone. What I don't like is when they do those apologies like they did for Maps. Sometimes customers need to be told they aren't always right. I liked Steve Jobs' 'don't hold it that way' attitude. Tim can just say 'don't bend it that way'. Doing it via Twitter would be the best way because if he says something that's offensive, he can just claim his account was hacked.The fact that pretty much the only people who posted the problem online...
That happened with the 5c, someone sat down with it, it flexed and the battery went on fire:http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/02/03/iphone-5c-catches-fire-in-students-pocket-causes-second-degree-burnsAny amount of flex in a smartphone isn't good for safety.
It's mostly if you do heavier creative work. Like say you do print magazines, you might have Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Safari open where each Adobe app uses 3GB each, Safari uses 1-2GB, the OS is using 1GB, the integrated graphics has allocated 512MB-1GB for video memory and miscellaneous smaller apps (email, notes, iTunes etc) use another 1GB combined. That takes the amount needed to over 12GB. The newer systems compress inactive memory so they should give a bit...
In Mavericks and Yosemite, you'd check swap used at the bottom left of the Activity Monitor window. If that's zero, you haven't run out of memory. It resets after a reboot so you'd have to leave it running for a while to see.With enough RAM and an SSD, that should eliminate the main bottlenecks.
