By | September 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

British supermarket chain Tesco has closed down its parking validation web app after The Register discovered tens of millions of automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR) images left unsecured in a Microsoft Azure blob.

The images themselves consisted of photos of cars taken as they entered and left 19 of the company's car parks spread across the country. While the drivers of these vehicles were not visible in the photos, their license plate numbers were.

The Azure blob which powered Tesco's outsourced parking validation web app had no login or authentication controls and was completely accessible.… Read the full article

This iPhone 11 drop test proves why you desperately need a case

By | September 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced the iPhone 11 Pro as having the “toughest glass ever in a smartphone,” but on the phone’s release day, Tom’s Guide saw evidence to the contrary: when dropped just once from hip-height, the front screen cracks pretty hard.

That’s about the height it would fall when fumbled out of a pocket, so it’s a good estimate of what might happen if you can’t catch your phone in time. The back glass fared better, but still cracked. 

It’s not the only new iPhone to suffer a fall and sad cracking:

Granted, it’s not quite enough of a sample size to be representative of the phone’s front glass strength – perhaps it’s stronger when dropped at other angles. 

But the experiment totally supports the need for a case to protect these expensive flagship smartphones – we’re starting to see a theme here.… Read the full article

Android VPN apps found serving disruptive ads

By | September 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

A security researcher has discovered four VPN apps that serve ads while running in the background and also on the home screen of Android smartphones in the latest case of adware found on the Google Play Store.

While researching suspicious Android VPN apps, Andy Michael found that Hotspot VPN, Free VPN Master, Secure VPN and Security Master by Cheetah Mobile were all showing full screen pop-up ads on his smartphone even though none of these apps were currently open.

It is also worth noting that all of these apps originate from either Hong Kong or China where VPN usage tends to be higher than in other countries due to China's Great Firewall and the ongoing protests in Hong Kong.… Read the full article

By | September 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Hollywood actors appearing in videogames is not something new. From voice-overs to celebrity cameos, plenty of acting elite have dipped their toes in the pool of gaming over the years. 

However, it's only been in recent years that we've seen Hollywood's elite beginning to take front and center stage in games: lending not only their voices or likeness to the medium, but undergoing intensive motion-capture, training and filming for their virtual roles.

In 2019 alone, The Punisher's Jon Bernthal is strapping on his bullet-proof vest to star as the lead antagonist in Ghost Recon Breakpoint and his The Walking Dead co-star Norman Reedus is strapping a baby to his chest for Kojima's Death Stranding.… Read the full article
