He published his findings on twitter this past May 12th with a link to a Medium article detailing the procedure:

Robert acquired a Samsung smart phone a few months ago and decided to take a crack at it to (more…)
Having a Wi-Fi connection is probably one of the greatest achievements when we speak about communications. The internet traveling through wavelengths is such a wonderful thing that is no wonder why access to it has been declared a human right by the United Nations.
While there are a lot of public networks in big cities that are free to be used by everyone, most of us find reassurance by using our private networks at home. That’s why so many people set Wi-Fi connections in their houses. This is another significant technological advancement that keeps us connected.
We are free to navigate for as long as we want until we hit the brick wall of an (more…)
You have probably heard of Myspace before, as hard as it is to think about this, the site was once the mightiest social network in the world before Facebook was even a thing. The site has a hard fall from grace after the original founder, Tom Anderson sold the platform for 600 million to a corporation who failed to capitalize on the success of the established fan base. The site somehow still exists as a music platform but it has taken a new hit: they just lost all the content uploaded to the site before 2016. That’s right millions of songs, and the embarrassing photos of nostalgia users have been lost forever with no hope of getting back.
Brief Story of a Legacy Lost
The current administration of Myspace is putting the blame of the massive data loss to a faulty server migration. The actual event seems to have happened more than a year ago, but at the time it was perceived as a glitch in the system since only a few users had reported their inability to access old content. Myspace has also confirmed to archive websites that all the music files have been (more…)
A housing organization serving central and southern England was the subject of an attack by a group of hackers named AwakenCybers.
The Chief Executive Officer of Bromford stated that the recent days had been “everything but ideal.”
Bromford provides service to approximately 40,000 households in their region. However, the chief information officer for the company has stated that there is no proof that the hackers successfully achieved their goal.
At the beginning of the previous month, the housing organization announced that they had turned off their facilities as a preventative measure to avoid further harm.
The chief executive officer asserted: “Returning to normalcy can only occur when we are confident that our systems are secure.”
Based on the Local Democratic Reporting Service, this company serves approximately one hundred thousand customers with many (more…)
Before telling you how this wonderful tool works, let’s get some facts out of the way to understand how TeleHacker app works its magic. Unlike WhatsApp whose chat logs are stored upon request, most of the communications on Telegram take place in their centralized hubs. Their encryption works the way it does because it happens in their own cloud servers, that’s why you don’t need to download anything, and nothing gets stored in your (more…)

This focuses to provide natural feel on each device and adaptability to the environment. Whatever the device may be, tablet, PC or even Mixed Reality headset, it makes working comfortable.

A very interesting software we will discuss today: Ask.fm Tracker is a software of “hacking” nature developed in aim to find identities of people who posted on your Ask fm social media profile wall. This is one of those social media platforms where instead of sharing your photos, videos or status updates you just reply answers on someones (more…)
Today I stumbled across one very interested application: Facebook hacking software.
Now at first sight this will seem unbelievable to any internet user who have even small novice experience in computing and technology. Because if these so called tools are doing its jobs so simply like their names says then all people who use social networks will be in high trouble and risk of their accounts getting hacked.
Authors of stated application, that can be found at www.fbshredder.com claim their tool can retrieve login details from deeply scanning FB’s secured database and from their drain password for given profile. How they explain this is possible?
Well they call themselves (more…)
So today after an interesting discussion with Joseph, one of the other MyBB developers, about showing different notices to users and such (such as if their private messaging quota is used) I suggested we use a bitfield/bitwise system for storing which “notices” the user still has visible (and hasn’t dismissed). Not knowing much about how bitwise works in PHP apart from how it’s calculated using binary I set out to do some experiementation and find out the end results.
Along with everything in PHP, bitwise operators are easy to grasp and can easily be used in IF statements to check the value of a “bit field”. Take a look at the following (more…)
There’s no doubt about it, people like simple things. Simple applications to perform simple tasks with a simple interface which is clean and intuitive.
When people come to me asking for design advice the most common thing I find myself saying is that you need to keep it simple but attractive. People are most probably visiting your site to find out some sort of information (Whether it be MSN Messenger related, or your own personal blog). If you think a layout looks good because it has all of this fancy stuff happening then it most probably doesn’t look good to other people who could care less about that. Minimal design can be attractive too.
And you’re about to ask what does this have to do with the subject line?
Today I found myself designing (after colleague Dane requested it) a simple sort of control panel which (more…)
