Google Enlists Outside Help to Clean Up Android’s Malware Mess

Android has a bit of a malware problem. The open ecosystem’s flexibility also makes it relatively easy for tainted apps to circulate on third-party app stores or malicious websites. Worse still, malware-ridden apps sneak into the official Play Store with disappointing frequency. After grappling with the issue for a decade, Google is calling in some reinforcements. Today Google is announcing a partnership with three antivirus firms—ESET, Lookout, and Zimperium—to create an App Defense Alliance. All three companies have done extensive Android malware research over the years, and have...

Facebook Sweetens Deal for Hackers to Catch Security Bugs

In the wake of extensive mishandling of user data and a series of security missteps, Facebook has deployed a number of security and privacy initiatives. A key focus: expanding its long-standing bug bounty program. Now Facebook is courting outside hackers more aggressively than ever. Last year, the company began paying bounties for certain bugs researchers might find in third-party services that integrate with Facebook. It will now expand the types of bugs that are eligible, and even pay out for bugs that have also been directly submitted to another developer’s own bug bounty....

A Controversial Plan to Encrypt More of the Internet

The security community generally agrees on the importance of encrypting private data: Add a passcode to your smartphone. Use a secure messaging app like Signal. Adopt HTTPS web encryption. But a new movement to encrypt a fundamental internet mechanism, promoted by browser heavyweights like Google Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox, has sparked a heated controversy. The changes center around the Domain Name System, a decentralized directory that acts essentially as the internet’s address book. When you send data to or request it from a server, a DNS lookup ensures that it goes to and...

Best-ever algorithm found for huge streams of data

It’s hard to measure water from a fire hose while it’s hitting you in the face. In a sense, that’s the challenge of analyzing streaming data, which comes at us in a torrent and never lets up. If you’re on Twitter watching tweets go by, you might like to declare a brief pause, so you can figure out what’s trending. That’s not feasible, though, so instead you need to find a way to tally hashtags on the fly.It’s hard to measure water from a fire hose while it’s hitting you in the face.

The little black box that took over piracy

The Kodi box pitch is hard to resist. A little black plastic square, in look not much different from a Roku or Apple TV, and similar in function as well. This streamer, though, offers something those others never will: Free access to practically any show or movie you can dream of. No rental fees. No subscriptions. Just type in the name of a blockbuster, and start watching a high-definition stream in seconds. For years, piracy persisted mainly in the realm of torrents, with sites like The Pirate Bay and Demonoid connecting internet denizens to premium content gratis. But a confluence of...
