Suggested January 2024 Lulz Boat Hacks Sony’s Harbor: Faq

The hacker group LulzSec made good on its recent promise to embarrass Sony by compromising the personal information of 1 million users of chúng tôi The latest Sony hack is another black eye for a company that only recently recovered from the hack against Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation Network and Qriocity music service in April.

Here’s a breakdown of LulzSec’s latest hack, which the group is calling Sownage (Sony + Ownage).

How much user data was exposed?

LulzSec says its hack exposed user data for 1 million users; however, the hacker group did not have the computer resources to download all of the exposed material. Based on a summary of the exposed user data on LulzSec’s website, the group included the personal information for more than 51,000 users related to chúng tôi and another 600 users from Sony BMG Netherlands.

What kind of data was stolen?

LulzSec says it was able to expose passwords, e-mail addresses, home addresses, birthdates, and all Sony opt-in data associated with users’ accounts. In some cases, the exposed personal information included home telephone numbers. The Associated Press on Thursday contacted several users by telephone based on information included in LulzSec’s sample. The AP confirmed that at least some of the exposed information was genuine.

Where is this data now?

What should I do if I was hacked?

How was this hack done?

An SQL injection is when a hacker types code requesting data into a Web form instead of the data the site expects, such as a user name or password. If proper precautions are not taken, the code is able to execute and allow hackers to download the database information they requested.

Was the exposed data encrypted?

Who is LulzSec?

LulzSec (Lulz Security) is a hacker group (or possibly just one person) responsible for a number of recent intrusions into corporate servers. The group broke into a Sony site based in Japan, chúng tôi and the recent PBS hack that included posting a fake news item to chúng tôi proclaiming rapper Tupac Shakur was still alive.

As its name suggests, LulzSec claims to be interested in mocking and embarrassing companies by exposing security flaws rather than stealing data for criminal purposes. But that doesn’t mean others won’t capitalize on security flaws exposed by the online pranksters.

It sure looks that way with the recent Gmail hack that Google blames on China, the LulzSec break-ins, and a rash of other intrusions such as the RSA SecurID breach and the Sony PSN hack. But keep in mind that many of these intrusions are the result of companies and users failing to follow basic security measures.

With hackers becoming more emboldened to attack corporate sites, corporations need to do a better job of safeguarding user data. A good start would be to watch out for basic SQL injection techniques, encrypt databases filled with personal information, and provide an HTTPS connection for their users whenever possible. These three basic things would go a long way to thwarting the shenanigans of groups like LulzSec. You can never be 100 percent immune from intrusions, but that’s no excuse for failing to follow even the most basic security precautions.

Raw Dog Food Can Harbor Antibiotic

Every year, humans produce around 100,000 tons of antibiotics—about half the weight of an oceangoing cargo ship, and enough to save millions of lives each year from infections that used to be death sentences. 

But the bulk go to livestock, which are dosed up to ward off disease in crowded conditions or to speed up growth. And that means we’ve set up the perfect conditions for bacteria to learn to beat our defenses. Right now, about 35,000 people die from antibiotic resistant bacteria in the US annually, and the UN estimates that the annual toll could be millions by 2050 as we lose our ability to treat now-dormant diseases.

And these hardy microbes might be entering our homes through a previously unknown side door: pets. Two new studies from Portuguese research teams presented at a European conference on infectious diseases find that raw dog food, at least as it’s sold in Europe, harbors multidrug resistant bacteria—and that dogs may be able to pass along that resistance to bacteria in their owners.

In the pet food study, researchers tested 55 different samples of four types of dog food: wet, dry, treats, and raw. They were hunting for Enterococci, a genus of bacteria that lives in the animal guts and sewage (two common species in humans are E. faecalis and E. faecium), and can cause anything from urinary tract infections to meningitis if they find their way into the right parts of the body.

Enterococci are also notably resistant to common antibiotics, including penicillin. Of the 30 samples that tested positive for the bacteria, more than 40 percent were resistant to eight different antibiotics.

According to a press release, some of the multi-drug resistant strains were “identical to bacteria isolated from hospital patients in the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands,” as well as to strains from British farm animals.

Most concerningly, 23 percent were resistant to linezolid, an antibiotic saved as a backstop to treat multidrug resistant infections. Oddly, linezolid isn’t used to treat animals, it’s mostly reserved for treating tuberculosis and MRSA in humans. Still, this isn’t the first study that’s found resistance to the last-resort drug in livestock, and a study last year from China suggested that the trait may be the result of a sort of cross immunity to another type of common antibiotic.

But the resistance was concentrated in raw pet food, all of which contained some multidrug resistant bacteria. Resistance appeared in over 10 percent wet food, and not at all in other types. It’s not the first time that raw pet food has been found to harbor these bacteria; in 2023, a team in the Netherlands found that cats who ate raw food were more likely to shed drug resistant bacteria.

Now, based on these studies, it appears that raw dog food—which is basically frozen ground meat—is more common in Europe than in the US. And we can’t know if the exact same bacteria would appear an ocean away. But by most accounts from vets, raw food is growing in popularity in the US—often explained as a pet-centered offshoot of the natural food and paleo trends—and like plenty of pet food, it’s coming from conventionally grown meat.

The problem isn’t just for pets or their owners, because bacteria and other single-celled microorganisms have a deeply strange way of evolving: they can pass one another useful genes, not just within species, but across them. Bacteria dropped by Dutch cats, the 2023 study found, were at risk of passing along their drug resistance to their entire environment.

The second Portuguese team found something similar: in a study of 126 pet owners and 102 cats and dogs, eight dogs were infected with bacteria that confers resistance to another last resort antibiotic, colistin. So did four humans. (Cats didn’t carry the drug resistant bacteria at all.)

Faq: Ios 14 Checkra1N Jailbreak

The checkra1n jailbreak recently picked up support for iOS 14 on devices equipped with Apple’s A8-A9X processors, but as many noticed on the night this happened, the checkra1n team also elucidated on how it would take more time to add support for A10 and A10X devices and that they weren’t even sure if they would be able to add support for A11-equipped devices like the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X.

Given the rather unexpected and uncertain circumstances, we’re sure there are a lot of questions about the checkra1n jailbreak and when or if it will receive updates to support newer devices. With that in mind, we wanted to take a moment to deliver an FAQ-style post that would discuss many of the most common questions and the best answers for those questions that we have at the time of this writing.

iOS 14 checkra1n jailbreak FAQ

Here’s a brief overview of everything you should know about the current circumstances surrounding checkra1n’s iOS & iPadOS 14 compatibility:

What devices does checkra1n support on iOS 14?

At the time of this writing, checkra1n v0.11.0 supports A8, A8X, A9, and A9X devices running Apple’s iOS & iPadOS 14 operating systems. Update: checkra1n can now jailbreak all A8, A8X, A9, A9X, A10, A10X, and A11 devices running iOS or iPadOS 14, however there’s a catch for A11 devices, as you won’t be able to use a passcode on these devices if jailbroken.

What devices does checkra1n not support on iOS 14?

At this time of this writing, checkra1n v0.11.0 does not support A10-A11 devices running Apple’s iOS & iPadOS 14 operating systems. Update: checkra1n now supports all A8-A11 devices running iOS or iPadOS 14.

Will the checkra1n team ever add support for the above devices?

The checkra1n team said they to add support for A10 and A10X devices “in coming weeks,” but there is no concrete ETA for such support. Update: support for these devices is now available. The checkra1n team is needing to jump through extra hoops to make the jailbreak work on A10 and newer devices because Apple implemented new a security mitigation to SEPOS that makes it substantially more difficult to achieve a jailbreak these handsets. A known security vulnerability called blackbird, however, will allow the checkra1n team to work around this on devices equipped with A10 and A10X processors.

As for A11 devices like the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, these devices utilize newer hardware with even tighter security. The checkra1n team isn’t entirely sure if they can get the jailbreak up and running on these devices anytime soon, but they won’t be giving up. In fact, they’ll be working around the clock to find ways around the upgraded security in the near future in an attempt to reestablish support for these devices. Unfortunately, A11 devices aren’t affected by the aforementioned blackbird security vulnerability, which leaves the hackers forced to start back at square one.

How do I jailbreak with checkra1n? I accidentally updated to iOS 14, what do I do now?

Assuming you have an A8-A9X device, you can jailbreak it with checkra1n right now. Unfortunately for everything else, Apple stopped signing the last iteration of iOS 13 earlier this week, which means official methods of downgrading your firmware are no longer viable. We’d recommend saving your SHSH blobs and remaining patient for a novel development.

Isn’t the checkra1n jailbreak supposed to be un-patchable?

The checkm8 bootrom exploit that powers the chreckra1n jailbreak is, in fact, un-patchable, but Apple’s iOS 14 update makes it more difficult to complete the process that checkra1n sets out to achieve on A10-A11 devices by adding security mitigations via SEPOS. More specifically, as the checkra1n team puts it, “if the device was booted from DFU mode and the Secure Enclave receives a request to decrypt user data, it will panic the device.” With that in mind, the checkra1n team will now need to consider burning SEPROM exploit(s) if they are to make checkm8 viable on A11 devices.

In short, the checkm8 bootrom exploit hasn’t been patched (and can’t be), Apple has just made it more difficult to apply it to certain devices. The checkra1n team will need time to develop a workaround.

How much longer before the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X can be jailbroken on iOS 14 with checkra1n?

This is a good question, and unfortunately, no one knows the answer. It could take a while to develop a workaround for Apple’s latest security mitigation, and there’s no telling how long that might take. Fortunately, we have very talented hackers at the forefront of the checkra1n team, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

How does all of this impact the jailbreak community?

As long as you have an A8-A9X device at your disposal, the latest security mitigation won’t impact you at all and you can continue jailbreaking iOS 14 with checkra1n just as you did on iOS 13.

If you have an A10 or A10X device, you’ll simply need to wait a little longer (a few more weeks) to be able to jailbreak on iOS 14 as you were able to on iOS 13.

If you have an A11 device, then you should keep it on iOS 13 instead of upgrading for now. This ensures that you can jailbreak with checkra1n in the meantime until a workaround can be found for Apple’s new security mitigation. Alternatively, you can use another jailbreak like Odyssey or unc0ver.

What does the future of checkra1n hold?

From what we can gather, the checkra1n team has no intention of raising the white flag merely because Apple made things a little bit more difficult with iOS 14. Checkra1n team member Luca Todesco Tweeted just this afternoon that the team will “put in real effort to drop real research and development to keep it alive.”

It doesn’t seem like the checkra1n team will be going anywhere, and this certainly also applies to the jailbreak itself. Just because Apple made it more difficult to jailbreak certain devices running iOS 14 doesn’t mean that checkra1n will become any less relevant to the community or that it will suddenly disappear off the face of the Earth.

Should I ask the checkra1n team for ETAs?

Please don’t pester the checkra1n team with relentless ETA questions. Not only are they likely to be ignored to receive sarcastic responses, but they do nothing productive to help the team. For everyone’s sake, merely follow the checkra1n team and its members on Twitter to receive the latest updates and keep it tuned to iDownloadBlog for the latest news and tutorials.

What about A12 and newer devices on iOS 14?

The checkra1n jailbreak has never supported devices newer than the A11 variety, and it probably never will. This is because the jailbreak is based on a bootrom exploit that only impacts older hardware. Those using A12 and newer devices should wait for another jailbreak tool to receive iOS 14 support.

Although some iOS & iPadOS 14 users have hit rough water with the checkra1n jailbreak, that doesn’t mean that newer devices affected by the checkm8 exploit will be un-jailbreakable on iOS 14 forever. It’s entirely possible that someone from the checkra1n team will find a way around Apple’s latest security mitigation or that another jailbreak team might develop a tool for all devices before then.

In any case, we see regular jailbreak updates and releases throughout the year, and so I don’t expect that the community will be too horribly burned from the circumstances.


Apple may have made iOS and iPadOS 14 a bit more difficult to bust on certain devices, but we remain overtly optimistic about the situation. Our community is in good hands with the talented hackers that develop the jailbreaks we use every day, and there’s no shortage of exploits making their way to the pubic that may help push the community forward.

Faq: Ftc’s Lawsuit Against Intel

The Federal Trade Commission filed an antitrust-related lawsuit against Intel Wednesday, accusing the chip maker of deliberately attempting hurt its competition and ultimately consumers. The landmark lawsuit alleges that Intel has deprived customers of choice by trying to slow down innovation among its rivals, and by keeping computer makers hooked with lucrative incentives for doing little business elsewhere.

Why is the FTC going after Intel now?

Intel’s allegedly anticompetitive practices have been in the news quite a bit lately, with “smoking gun” e-mails revealed in Europe’s antitrust lawsuit against Intel, the chip-maker’s settlement with underdog AMD, and New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s antitrust lawsuit against Intel. Dan Olds, principal analyst for the Gabriel Consulting Group, says that, against this background, it didn’t look good for the FTC to sit on the sidelines, and that the commission will likely seek a fine from Intel. Jim McGregor, In-Stat’s chief technology strategist, also called the lawsuit a publicity move by the government.

Have consumers been paying too much for processors?

Illustration: Harry Campbell

If the FTC’s allegations are true, consumers actually have not been paying too much for their PCs, according to experts. Because Intel has been allegedly attempting to undercut the competition, the price of Intel PCs may have been artificially lowered.

This isn’t about pricing for consumers, says Leslie Fiering, Gartner’s research vice president. At issue is whether it’s illegal to provide discounts and other incentives in exchange for a certain amount of business. So you could argue that Intel’s practices saved end-user customers money by charging manufacturers less. Those savings were theoretically passed on to consumers.

From a macro perspective, you could argue that in the long run, Intel’s alleged anticompetitive behavior could stifle the competition (AMD) and thereby allow Intel to own the PC semiconductor market and start charging much higher prices. But that scenario has not played out yet, say experts.

So what have consumers lost, superior products?

One of those possibly hurt is nVidia with its Ion graphics mobile chip. We won’t know for sure until details emerge, but nVidia may possibly have been locked out of netbooks whose manufacturers stuck millions of mininotebooks with the Atom’s integrated graphics, which can’t deliver high-quality video and is not adequate for graphics-heavy games.

Do consumers stand to gain better products as a result of the lawsuit?

nVidia isn’t so pessimistic. It applauds the FTC’s lawsuit, saying that it’s necessary to prevent Intel from blocking competition in the emerging GPU marketplace.

How will this case impact AMD?

Graphic: Diego AguirreMcGregor said it’s too late for the feds to give AMD a boost, as the company recently settled antitrust and intellectual property lawsuits with Intel. Gartner analyst Fiering also noted that Intel’s success comes partly from being a manufacturing powerhouse. AMD is divesting from chip manufacturing, and the settlement allows AMD to use any contract chip maker. In theory, this lets the company focus on innovation and product development, but that has nothing to do with the FTC’s lawsuit.

PCWorld’s resident chip expert, Jason Cross, says never say never when it comes to AMD. The company has very good engineers, a leadership position in graphics technology, and a huge cash infusion from the recent Intel/AMD suit settlement. Plus, AMD is quickly divesting their chip manufacturing off to GlobalFoundries, which should help prevent AMD from bleeding red ink.

How long will this case take to play out? In the end, what do consumers stand to gain?

Olds and McGregor both think the suit has very little in it for consumers. Even if Intel had to make concessions on volume discounts to computer makers, chip prices, McGregor says, would still fall due to consumer expectations and competition from AMD.

Will we see more AMD systems?

McGregor says that’s already happened over the last couple of years, partly because of increased scrutiny of Intel from other nations and partly because AMD has offered good prices on CPU and GPU combinations. And it’s unlikely that consumers will be compensated directly as a result of the FTC’s lawsuit, since fines would probably be placed in a general government fund.

The real winners, Olds says, are the lawyers, who could work on these cases for the rest of their legal careers.

Sony’s Next Smartwatch Might Be Made Entirely From E

We may earn revenue from the products available on this page and participate in affiliate programs. Learn more ›

What time is it? Time to get a smartwatch made entirely out of electronic paper. That’s what Sony’s rumored to launch sometime next year, according to Bloomberg, and it makes sense: There’s intense and burgeoning interest in wearable technology.

What would set Sony’s hypothetical gadget apart from the competition is that the whole thing—display and band—is supposed to be made of e-paper. This is the same material that makes up the screen of your Kindle, and it requires much less power than a full-color LCD screen of the type you’ll see in the Apple Watch or Motorola 360. It’s also more visible in bright light. There are also drawbacks, however, including grayscale-only graphics.

This wouldn’t be Sony’s first smartwatch. The company recently launched an Android-compatible SmartWatch line (pictured above). But with this model, Sony’s said to be valuing style over substance; i.e. e-paper would allow the device to change its appearance entirely, potentially letting people tweak its look to match an outfit (at least by pattern—again, e-paper can’t yet produce color). But it would also probably be less technologically capable than the Apple and Motorola offerings.

There’s already competition in the e-paper smartwatch market, though. Pebble, for example, has sold e-ink smartwatches since 2013, and with its (relatively modest) longevity and expansive app catalog, right now it’s the one to beat in the nascent wearables market. (Even the relative power efficiency of an e-ink display hasn’t been able to completely compensate for battery challenges; my own Pebble requires recharging every day or two, though I know others who manage to get nearly a full week’s charge out of it.)

FES Watch

The FES Watch is a crowdfunded project in Japan that’s also built entirely from e-paper.

Sony also wouldn’t be the first to the whole-watch-is-a-display idea. The FES Watch, which recently hit its funding goal on Japanese crowdfunding site Makuake, uses an all–e-ink design that offers a couple dozen preset design patterns. But that’s as far as its “smart” abilities seem to go—it’s mainly intended as a watch.

Sony’s foray seems borne of a certain amount of desperation, too. Their product would come out of a new division that exists to develop new, exciting products, which Sony clearly hopes can help revamp its image, and perhaps even harken back to the company’s innovative days of yore. But it has lost a lot of ground—and money—over the past several years, and one e-paper watch probably isn’t going to, well, turn back the clock.
