Bug in Google Camera put Android users at risk of being secretly recorded
Not one to let Facebook get ahead, Google has disclosed a vulnerability in Android which made it possible for hackers to hijack your camera, and secretly capture photos and record footage — even when the phone is locked or the screen is off. The bug, discovered by researchers from Checkmarx, stemmed from permission bypass issues in the Google Camera app. The issue (filed under CVE-2019-2234) affected Pixel phones, but further spilled over to devices from Samsung and other manufacturers. “An attacker can control the app to take photos and/or record videos through a rogue application that has no permissions to do so,”… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Android,Google

Jimmy Kimmel tricks Trump fans into declaring their support for... Richard Nixon
Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! took to the streets to ask Trump supporters whether they felt the U.S. president should be impeached for his controversial actions. Unsurprisingly, they didn't, disagreeing across the board. However, the facts put to the public weren't actually about Donald Trump. Instead, they were very clear and obvious references to Richard Nixon. You know, that other U.S. president who also faced impeachment for doing crimes. The one who gave us the suffix -gate for every public scandal since the '70s. The one who resigned rather than drag everyone through further mud-slinging and suffering.

Dark Waters review – Mark Ruffalo v big business in enraging drama
The shocking true story of how corporate corruption infected the water of a small town is brought to the screen in mostly effective form by Todd HaynesAt the end of Dark Waters, a dense, angry drama about the horrifying health effects of corporate negligence, it’s possible, and perhaps quite likely, to leave the cinema with complaints about the specifics of the film-making. Sometimes it pushes too much, sometimes not enough, a conventional procedural with undeniable flaws. But what’s entirely impossible as the credits roll, is to leave without a palpable sense of fury, a real world, off-screen outrage directed not just at a particular issue but at a particular company. It’s a film that works best as a two-hour assault on DuPont, a chemical company with toxic blood all over its hands. Continue reading...

Seth Meyers slams the GOP's latest attempts to undermine impeachment hearings
The third day of public Trump impeachment hearings took place on Thursday, though it feels as though they've been dragging on since 2016. Fortunately, Late Night with Seth Meyers examined some of the day's highlights for those too exhausted to watch the proceedings themselves. "The public hearings are going so badly for Trump that Republicans who spent weeks complaining the initial depositions were being held in private are now going back to saying this should all be handled behind closed doors," quipped Meyers, citing comments made by Senator Ron Johnson. Thursday's hearings were primarily concerned with the testimonies of White House advisor Jennifer Williams and decorated Iraq War veteran Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman. Meanwhile, Republicans seemed primarily concerned with attempting to discredit a Purple Heart recipient.  Read more...More about Donald Trump, Seth Meyers, Late Night With Seth Meyers, Impeachment, and Trump Administration

‘Englishness’ was never enough to build a nation on | Alex Niven
With the union under unprecedented strain, it’s time for a radical new vision that goes beyond narrow nationalismsDuring his brief tenure as prime minister, Boris Johnson has flaunted his disregard for the tenets of Tory traditionalism. In an eventful few months, he has misled the monarchy and belittled the judiciary. But the bigger surprise has been his indifference to Conservative unionism. While Theresa May’s Brexit strategy faltered partly because she believed in the inviolability of the United Kingdom, Johnson seems relatively relaxed about the prospect of his party surrendering nearly all its seats in Scotland – and, in theory at least, about sacrificing some of Northern Ireland’s statutory Britishness if it will smooth the passage of a Brexit deal.All of this suggests that Johnson’s vision for government, if it can be called that, is a specifically English one. There is underlying logic here. With Scottish independence and Irish reunification now looming somewhere in the middle distance, it makes sense for Johnson to view unionism as a hopeless cause, and to think about ways of governing England after the United Kingdom crumbles.

How the IMF can stay relevant
The Fund’s policy advice at present has little impact – for that it has to share the blameThis year, I didn’t attend the October annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington, DC. Instead, I paid close attention to reports of the gathering and talked to people who were there whom I respect. What emerged is depressing for the wellbeing of the global economy. In particular, the prospect of continued weakness and fragmentation pressures will compound the challenges to the credibility and effectiveness of multilateral institutions.The convening power of the IMF and the World Bank is unquestionably strong, if not unique. Every year, their annual meetings attract top economic and financial officials from more than 180 countries, as well as a far larger number of private-sector representatives. It’s an exceptional global gathering, not only for officials to exchange views but also for corporate networking. Continue reading...

The royal treatment: the majestic role of fashion in The Crown
By recreating the royals’ outfits and ramping up the glamour, the hit TV drama constantly blurs the line between fact and fiction. That is what makes the show so compellingAll publicity is good publicity, they say, but the royal family is the exception that proves that rule. And recent television coverage of the royals has been – to put it mildly – a mixed bag. The new series of The Crown launched on Netflix within hours of that Prince Andrew interview. One was dependably glorious, which is precisely what royalty is supposed to be. The other was, well, a car crash seems to be the go-to analogy, although I can’t help feeling car crashes are slightly bad-taste imagery when it comes to describing royal PR disasters.The upshot of all this is that the third series of The Crown will be required to do more heavy lifting than the previous two, in making us fall in love with it – a burden that falls in large part upon the wardrobe department. Clothes, jewellery, hair and makeup are an essential part of The Crown. From the beginning, the series has made the royals more beautiful and more glamorous than their real-life counterparts, and invited us to fall under their spell. The Crown has given the senior royals a newly glittering backstory: here, we see the Queen a spirited young beauty; Prince Philip golden-haired and square-jawed. Continue reading...

‘The clock is ticking’: race to save 2 million from statelessness in Assam
A team of volunteer paralegals are fighting to stop Indians without proof of citizenship being sent to detention campsWhen she was one, Suro Devi was rescued by a sewer cleaner from a rubbish dump in Assam, northeast India. When the state of Assam started a massive exercise to register its citizens in 2015, Suro Devi did not have a birth certificate, information about her parents, a voter list with her name on it, or anything to prove that she had lived in Assam before 25 March 1971. She seemed destined to be left off the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and become stateless, and perhaps spend the rest of her days in a detention camp.But Zamser Ali, a citizenship rights activist based in Assam’s capital, Guwahati, heard about Devi’s case. He knew that documents were not the only thing that could prove your origins. He managed to track down five eyewitnesses to her rescue from the dump. And in August, when the draft NRC was published, Devi’s name appeared on it. Continue reading...

I’ll take Labour dithering over Conservative cruelty any day | George Monbiot
We face a choice between a party in it for themselves and one seeking to solve our massive problems. It’s no contestTry to imagine Jeremy Corbyn in Tony Blair’s post-political role: flying around the world, enriching himself by striking deals with tyrants and oil companies. Try to picture John McDonnell setting up, like Blair’s righthand man, Peter Mandelson, a consultancy that gives reputational advice to controversial corporations. Try to picture Rebecca Long-Bailey being caught in a sting, like three of Blair’s former ministers, who offered undercover journalists political influence in exchange for cash.I find these scenarios impossible to imagine. Whatever you might think of Labour’s frontbenchers, you could surely no more picture them behaving this way than you could picture Boris Johnson abandoning his career to become a hospital cleaner.

VW's ID Space Vizzion electric concept car doesn't have door handles
The Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion electric concept car can go up to 300 miles on a single charge, boasts an impressive aerodynamic build, and is made with recycled materials — but don't look for something as basic as a door handle on the compact SUV-sized vehicle. The Space Vizzion is the seventh ID concept car showing what VW can do with an electric fleet as it adds more all-electric vehicles to its line-up. VW plans to add up to 20 electric vehicles on its battery platform (known as MEB, or "modular electric drive matrix") by 2025. A production-ready version of the car is expected in the U.S. by 2022. The original Vizzion concept car was first shown in 2018 as a sleek, low-riding, self-driving sedan, and the latest concept station wagon/super small SUV was revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show Tuesday night.
