WhatsApp Releasing New Features – Now with a Desktop Version

Only last month had rumours of WhatsApp working on a web client been circulating around the tech blogosphere. The unconfirmed rumours did indeed prove true, as the mobile messaging app has finally released a desktop version.

WhatsApp now on your DesktopRather than a native PC client, it works as a web app through Google Chrome. You can now type and receive messages through your desktop browser.

To log in to the web-ready version of WhatsApp you will need to take a picture of QR code shown to you on your desktop’s screen. Since WhatsApp doesn’t use usernames and passwords, this method will help establish an link between accounts.

The web-version is currently only available to users of Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone. Due to “Apple platform limitations’, iOS users will not be be able to use the slick new app.

Last month the number of active monthly users surpassed 700 million people. The service was bought by Facebook last April for a reported $19 billion in stock and cash.

Your phone is used past the initial login stage as the web-app depends on the phone battery. When the phone dies, so does the WhatsApp connection. A warning is displayed when battery level is low.

Wearables - the future or doom?It’s been awhile since wearable technology first came into existence – mostly in the form of experimental, prototype devices that companies used to test the waters before spending big bucks on these next-generation devices. However, it is the much hyped venture by tech heavyweights like Apple (Apple iWatch) and Google (Google Glass) that made everyone ask the million-dollar question: Are we heading towards an era when those fancy gadgets and devices often shown in Hollywood action and sci-fi flicks will finally become a reality?

Google Project Zero Announces Zero Day Security Exploits in Mac OS X

Last week, Google angered Microsoft be revealing a major security exploit in Windows, before they got the chance to patch with a security update. This week it’s apparently the giant Apple’s turn to take the heat.

Google Project ZeroGoogle’s Project Zero Initiative is responsible for making security disclosures public, as it seeks to put pressure firms into resolving security loopholes more quickly.

The security unit revealed three severe vulnerabilities in the operating system OS X, and they are not of small impact.
The exploits could allow hackers to take over control of your Mac computer.

Each vulnerability, as usual when the Project Zero team discloses them, includes a proof-of-concept exploit.

The exploits include,

1)  “OS X IOKit kernel code execution due to NULL pointer dereference in IntelAccelerator

2)  “OS X IOKit kernel memory corruption due to bad bzero in IOBluetoothDevice.” and includes an exploit related to OS X’s kernel structure.

3)  “OS X networkd “effective_audit_token” XPC type confusion sandbox escape,” which involves circumvention of security in the network system, and it may be mitigated in OS X Yosemite, however, there is really no explanation if this is the case.

Tech giant company, Google, says that in accordance with its policies it notified Apple in October 2014, and details were automatically publicized after the usual 90-day cutoff period, which incurred happened this week.

Many have complained that this puts users at risk blaming Google for informing hackers of the flaw.

Apple has yet to comment. As per the company’s history it will come forward after a solution has been found.

Tech blog, iMore, has reported that an upcoming Yosemite update (10.10.2) is expected to deal with the flaws.
Security analysts and Mac users are concerned that malware writers use those bugs before a solution update is delivered.

The Project Zero was launched in mid-2014 by Google and tasks their researchers with uncovering software exploits that have a potential of putting users at risk for targeted attacks.
