News and sports websites ‘vulnerable to attack’ – BBC News

News and sports websites have some of the lowest levels of security adoption, a study has suggested.A team of cyber-security experts looked at the security protocols used by the top 500 sites in various industries and online sectors.They found that fewer than 10% of news and sports websites used basic security protocols such as HTTPS and TLS.Even those that do are not always using the “latest or strongest protocols”, one of the study’s authors said.”As time goes by, all encryption gets weaker because people find ways around it,” Prof Alan Woodward, a cyber-security expert at the University of Surrey, told the BBC.”We tested the University of Surrey’s website using a site called Security Headers a couple of weeks ago and it got an A,” he explained, “but it’s only a C now.”Shopping and gaming

Germany’s Merkel says digital world needs global rules | Reuters

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday that the digital world needs regulations like those that exist for financial markets in the G20 and for trade under the World Trade Organization.Global policymakers are facing uncharted territory as emerging technologies open new frontiers for regulation with the inter-networking of smart devices and trends in the automation of factories, dubbed Industry 4.0 by German politicians.”We still have no international rules,” Merkel said alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during a visit to Mexico City, stressing that there were important security concerns without common standards.”Otherwise some provider could emerge … that’s an island, and from which things could be done, relevant to security, that could destroy an entire system. On this question of the rules-based handling of it, we’re still right at the start.”

EU öppnar en andra utredning av Qualcomm

Som Macken kortfattat kunnat meddelade tidigare så startar EU nu en andra utredning av teknikjätten Qualcomm.

Den nya utredningen tar sikte på Qualcomms köp av NXP, en holländsk tillverkare av elektroniska kretsar.

Over the past few years, multiple countries have opened antitrust investigations against Qualcomm, including Japan, China, South Korea,and  the United States, as well as the European Union.

They largely all agree that Qualcomm has been abusing its market position to demand exclusive deals from its customers, forcing competitors out of the market through expensive royalties for FRAND patents or by pricing its own products below cost (a tactic that’s called predatory pricing).

Nyligen lade Qualcomm ett bud på NXP på 38 miljarder dollar och vann budgivningen. Det är den affären som nu granskas av EU parallellt med den nu två år gamla utredningen av Qualcomms affärsmetoder och avtal.

Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, in charge of competition policy, said: “We use our electronic devices every day – mobile phones or tablets. As semiconductors are used in practically every electronic device, we are dependent on them in those devices. With this investigation, we want to ensure that consumers will continue to benefit from secure and innovative products at competitive prices.”
