Signal :: Private Messaging and Calling
Fri, Aug 26th 2016 6:11p   Volker Weber
If Vanity Fair starts chatting up Signal as a secure "Snowden-approved" channel, it may finally see a breakthrough. It's my third messenger next to iMessage and WhatsApp. More >

iOS 9.3.5 Zero Days ein “Desaster für Apple”? Im Gegenteil.
Fri, Aug 26th 2016 6:09a   Volker Weber
Nach bisherigen Informationen wurden 3 bisher unbekannte Schwachstellen in iOS entdeckt, die in Kombination nach Klick auf einen Link zu Schadsoftware Zugriff auf das iPhone ermöglichen. Ist das Grund zur Panik? Nein. Onkel Frank erklärt Euch das mit der Sicherheit. Und der weiß voll Bescheid. More >

How ad platforms learn your real social graph
Fri, Aug 26th 2016 4:44a   Volker Weber
Facebook has two messengers. Messenger works with your Facebook login and your "friends", WhatsApp with your phone number and your address book. The interesting information is not the directory but the traffic between those people. Whatsapp is so pervasive because you don't need to build your directory. It's already in your address book. Google, the older ad platform, has had many messengers, but eventually Hangouts persevered. It works with your Google ID. And Google failed to convince y

Do not hit "Agree" on WhatsApp
Fri, Aug 26th 2016 3:38a   Volker Weber
I know, we are all trained to just accept any changes in ToCs. But this time, don't. Instead, tap in the "Read more ..." at the bottom of the page. It will take you to another page, and there at the bottom is a switch. Toggle it from 1 to 0. It should not be green before you agree. Too late, you say? Already hit that Agree button? Follow the steps under Option 2.

That "App Modernization" story
Fri, Aug 26th 2016 3:27a   Volker Weber
I would like to ask you what you need for your Notes/Domino app development. Please work under these assumptions: Notes and Domino are not going anywhere. There is no big market push by IBM. There won't be major new releases. Notes will continue to run on Windows and Mac. Domino will continue to run on Windows and Linux. Domino will continue to be connected to Android and iOS. That is what I call "maintenance mode". So, what do you need in terms of development? Be smart. Don't ask for

Sophisticated, persistent mobile attack against high-value targets on iOS
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 4:04p   Volker Weber
From the lookout blog: Lookout’s analysis determined that the malware exploits three zero-day vulnerabilities, or Trident, in Apple iOS: CVE-2016-4655: Information leak in Kernel – A kernel base mapping vulnerability that leaks information to the attacker allowing him to calculate the kernel’s location in memory. CVE-2016-4656: Kernel Memory corruption leads to Jailbreak – 32 and 64 bit iOS kernel-level vulnerabilities that allow the attacker to silently jailb

What comes after the firetruck?
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 11:46a   Volker Weber
As you get older you lose many capabilities. I'd love to ride a longboard, that has become way too dangerous for my bones. But you gain something from watching the world around you. It's like a carousel. Firetruck, horse, motorcycle, car, ... and then firetruck, horse, motorcycle, car ... You don't have a time machine, and you still know the future. About eleven years ago I went to a Groupwise conference. I knew for a fact that Novell was milking its customer base. But here they were, a rat

How to not share your WhatsApp account information with Facebook
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 11:19a   Volker Weber
Facebook is an ad platform. Get used to it. It's not a social network. It is an ad platform. Got it? An ad platform works best if it knows your social graph. Not the hundreds of "friends" but the people you are talking to. Likes and comments. And chats. That is your real social graph. That is what Facebook Messenger does. And WhatsApp now as well. Did you notice how Facebook pressured you to leave your phone number to make your account "more secure"? It's your ID. And by joining your Wha

Domino 9.0.1 and beyond
Thu, Aug 25th 2016 10:54a   Volker Weber
Ed Brill, commenting on Darren Duke's rant: To comment on the support point specifically, in the next few weeks we will announce formally that support for 9.0.x will be extended to 2021. It doesn't depend on a version update. And as you note, things originally expected in 9.0.2 are going to come in what are currently called fixpacks. I haven't decided what to call the update with Verse on Premises yet. Reading between the lines: Domino 9.0.2 does not happen. Domino 9.0.1 is not going away

Alexander Neumann für Heise Developer: Viele Domino-Entwickler befürchten schon seit längerem eine unsichere Zukunft für ihr angestammtes Aufgabengebiet. Das kulminiert derzeit in etlichen kritischen Blog-Beiträgen. Vielleicht tritt aber schon nächsten Monat etwas Ruhe ein. More >
