CSRF Router Attack

The hack, albeit simple obtains elevated permissions to access as well as change the DNS setting. The domain name system (DNS) works by translating human-friendly domain names (e.g. www.google.com) into IP addresses that applications use to access web servers.

Team Cymru, the security research group that uncovered the hack disclosed a report of the large-scale attack being made possible by a vulnerability that allows hackers to override the login web interface of TP-Link routers.

The attack was reported to be affecting routers from India, Vietnam, Italy, Thailand and Colombia. The implications of the hack is far-reaching as DNS servers serves to redirect users to the correct IP address.

Internet Speed in the Philippines

In its latest “State of the Internet” survey, Akamai ranks the Philippines in 101st place among all countries surveyed for average internet connection speeds. Recording an average rate of 1.1Mbps, it is ranked 12th among the 13 countries surveyed in Asia Pacific.

Despite being included in the Top 20, the Philippines is the only country in the region which showed a decline in peak speed. Broadband adoption, however, rose 15% from the previous quarter, as a result of more local broadband providers offering affordable plans and bundled features.

I’ve seen a lot of failed log-in attempts for the past half a year. Although this website is not updated that regularly anymore, don’t think that no one is updating WordPress or its plugins. Security wise, it’s still constantly updated and monitored.

Check out DiGi’s online store now if you want to get a great deal which sounds like this! FREE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. All you have to do is sign up for their DiGi Broadbank Explore 6GB plan under 12 months contract with a monthly fee for only RM98/month. However, I can’t seem to buy this because DiGi says Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is currently out of stock now!! Will DiGi replenish their stock again?? I doubt so because it is stated “this offer is based on a first come first served basis”. Just a little too late.

It has been rumoured for some time now, but Taiwan’s HTC has confirmed that it is set to launch the world’s first smartphone with a full HD display. Unfortunately for most of us, the HTC J Butterfly will only be released in Japan and will not make its way to other markets.

HTC J Butterfly HTC Set to Launch Worlds First HD Phone

HTC J Butterfly

While manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung have been pushing for larger and larger smartphone screens over the past few years, screen resolutions have not really caught up. This has left many larger screened phones with relatively low image qualities, despite having seemingly high resolutions.

The J Butterfly not only has a 5 inch Super LCD 3 screen but combines this with an impressive 1920 x 1080 resolution, resulting in a staggering 440 pixel per inch (ppi) quality. When Apple launched the iPhone 4 back in 2010, with its “Retina” display, it had been fairly boastful about the 326 ppi quality. While some Android phones have since surpassed this ppi, none have yet got to the impressive quality offered by the J Butterfly. Of course, anything higher than the iPhone’s ppi is impossible to detect with the human eye, Apple will tell you, but it is still a sign of things to come.
