North Korea fires short-range missiles in latest test

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea fired several rockets into the sea Saturday in the continuation of its rapid nuclear and missile expansion, prompting South Korea to press ahead with military drills involving U.S. troops that have angered Pyongyang. The U.S. Pacific Command revised its initial assessment that the first and third short-range missiles failed during flight to say they flew about 250 kilometers (155 miles). It said that the second missile appears to have blown up immediately and that none posed threat to the U.S. territory of Guam, which the North had previously warned it would fire missiles toward.

Nun kann Martin Schulz nur noch ein Corbyn-Wunder helfen

Vier Wochen vor der Bundestagswahl besteht für die SPD nur noch wenig Hoffnung. Das zeigen Social-Media-Analysen von quintly und WIRED. Aber es gibt eine Chance.

Nur Wochen vor der Bundestagswahl liegt die SPD in Umfragen weit abgeschlagen hinter der Union. Noch ist nicht alles verloren, es lohnt der Blick zur britischen Labour-Partei: Ihr gelang es, vor den Unterhauswahlen im Juni binnen weniger Wochen fast 20 Prozent auf die konservativen Tories aufzuholen.

Leak of >1,700 valid passwords could make the IoT mess much worse

List of unsecured devices lived in obscurity since June. Now, it’s going mainstream.

The list of telnet-accessible devices, currently posted at this Pastebin address, was first posted in June, but it has been updated several times since then. It contains user names and passwords for 8,233 unique IP addresses, 2,174 of which were still running open telnet servers as of Friday morning, said Victor Gevers, chairman of the GDI Foundation, a Netherlands-based nonprofit that works to improve Internet security. Of those active telnet services, 1,774 remain accessible using the leaked credentials, Gevers said. In a testament to the poor state of IoT security, the 8,233 hosts use just 144 unique username-password pairs. Go To Post...
