With over 1.3billion people watching and waiting for the good news of its vikram making a safe landing on the moon, hopes seems to be lost as the agency lost trace of the lunar lander. India’s hopes for its Vikram lunar lander to make a soft landing on the moon were all but dashed when ground control lost of the aircraft’s signal.

According to space annalists, the normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 kilometres. Subsequently, the communications from the lander to ground station was lost. What is known is that the landing aircraft had successfully performed the rough braking phase, a controlled but strong fuel burn to reduce its descent velocity. But the trouble began shortly after the fine braking phase was initiated. That latter phase should have reduced the speed a little bit more to create the conditions for the craft to make a soft landing. While applause from engineers, scientists and invited guests matched each prior phase of the descent, the mission control room suddenly went quiet.

India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi was hopeful and applauded the progress of the scientists. “what you have achieved is no small feet, i am with you, proceed with courage, hope for the best” Modi told the scientists in the control room.

The only nations to have attained that achievement are the former Soviet Union, the United States of America and China.

Apple has planned to supply special iphones to security researchers from next year to help them find security damages in iOS. The security research device program will be available to researchers with a track record of high quality security research on any platform so that, not every regular developer will be able to access these devices.

Apple says the handsets will come with ssh which is a root shell and advanced debug capabilities all designed to make it easier for researchers to spot bugs. The devices will be made available to researchers that report bugs through the company’s invitation bug bounty program for iOS.

Kenya has opened its largest wind power plant which is said to be the largest in African continent. The wind power plant is expected to boost the country’s energy supply. The project is also expected to reduce cost of electricity.

A wind farm of 365 turbines located on the shores of lake Turkana in Northern Kenya has been designed to boost Kenya’s electricity supply by 13%, President of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta revealed on 19th of July 2019 when the project was launched.

President Kenyatta, who has announced plans to move the country to 100 percent green energy by 2020, said power from the $775m wind farm would help the government reach its goals of ensuring housing, healthcare, jobs and food security to all citizens. “Today marks an important milestone in the country’s steady march towards achieving self-sufficiency in power production,” Mugo Kibati, chairman of the Lake Turkana Wind Power, a private consortium that runs the plant noted.

The wind power plant is also in quest to reduce dependence on fossil fuel and to move the nations dream to attain a 100% green energy next year.

The United States Federal Trade Commission, FTC has approved an amount of 5billion United States dollars facebook settlement over its investigation of the social media company’s handling of personal user data. The Federal Trade Commission for some months has been investigating facebook for allegations of inappropriately sharing information of about 87million users with defunct British political company Cambirdge Analytica.

The probe has been focused on whether sharing of user data to Cambridge Analytica violated a 2011consent  agreement between the social media giant and the regulator. Shares of facebook rose after the news was reported by the wall street journal early Friday 12th of July 2019 and closed up to 1.8%. Beginning of 2019, facebook explained it has set aside $3billion to pay off its penalty.

The settlement still needs to be finalized by the US department civil division and then final announcement could follow maybe next week

Former boss of blessed memory

Today, Apple held its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose and threw a lot of newest technology on its devices including a Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, iOS 13 with a dark mode, MacOS Catalina and an operating system for the iPad called iPadOS.
Here is everything you need to know

current boss, Tim Cook

Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display XDR
The cheese grater is back for 2019 — and it’s modernized, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s based on a 28-core Intel Xeon workstation processor, six channels of ECC for up to 1TB of system memory, eight PCIe slots (four double wide) two 10GB Ethernet ports, support for dual AMD GPUs and more. Apple’s also introduced a custom video accelerator card, called Afterburner.
The rumored 32-inch HDR display (that Apple dubs “XDR”) is real, and Apple intends to replace reference monitors, with a matching cheese-grater back that’s also a huge heat sink. It’s got 6,016×3,384 resolution, a true 10-bit panel, a polarizer for better viewing angles, etched glass and a large array of blue LEDs with lenses and local dimming that supports 1,600 nits peak and 1,000 nits sustained and high contrast.
Apple also has a new card called Afterburner designed specifically for video-editing acceleration to support native ProRes and ProRes Raw in 8K.

iPad now runs iPadOS
Splitting the operating system lets Apple take better advantage of the bigger screen. It lets you pin widgets to the home screen, provides a better multitasking interface, and permits multiple windows in apps with split screen, App ExposeNow there’s a column view in Files, more metadata and quick actions. Also, folder sharing finally comes to iCloud Drive, and you’ll be able to attach to network servers. It adds support for USB thumb drives and the ability to import photos directly from a camera.
Safari on iPad will pull the desktop site resized for its display and optimized for touch input.There’s support for custom fonts from the big foundries, as well as better text selection. Apple Pencil has lower latency and is better for doing markup, and Apple has opened the programming interface to other software developers


MacOS Catalina
The new version of MacOS has an iTunes replacement dubbed Music, less-intrusive iPhone integration, a Podcast app with indexing for easy finding, and Apple TV with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision support.
There’s a new app called Sidecar that lets you use the iPad as a second display which adds assistive voice control.
An Activation Lock and find my comes to MacOS for locking access to your MacBook from thieves.
Project Catalyst (formerly Marzipan), is only for iPad apps; it permits developers to now easily port their iPad apps to MacOS. For developers, RealityKit and Reality Composer updates to ARKit (with built-in motion capture) made Minecraft in the real world possible, and that’s just for starters.Swift programming language has a new framework to make programming easier.

Would Apple call its next phone the iPhone 11 as we do for ease and a general sense of chronology or would it make more sense to stick with the X theme, and if so, then how iPhone X2 and X2S or is that the iPhone XI Would that make 2020’s phone the iPhone XIS of course not.

whatsapp-toxic.jpg?fit=1024%2C576&ssl=1

Whatsapp, a subsidiary of facebook said it has discovered a surveillance attack which has targeted a “select number” of users which has was orchestrated by an advanced cyber actor. The attack has been developed by NSO group, an Israeli security firm, a report in financial times has disclosed.
On 13th of May 2019, whatsapp urged about 1.5 billion users of the app worldwide to upgrade the app on their devices for any necessary precautions. The attack has been discovered early this month by their security team. Whatapp told BBC that, the attack was first discovered by their security team. They were able to detect the flaw and later shared that information with human rights groups, selected security vendors and the US Department of Justice earlier this month.


The firm also published an advisory to security specialists, in which it described the flaw as: “A buffer overflow vulnerability in WhatsApp VOIP stack allowed remote code execution via specially crafted series of SRTCP packets sent to a target phone number. Whatsapp also confirmed that a vulnerability in the popular communications app let mobile phones, iphones and android phones be infected with sophisticated spyware with just a missed in the apps voice call alone.
The NSO Group is an Israeli company that has been referred to in the past as a “cyber arms dealer” Its flagship software, Pegasus, has the ability to collect intimate data from a target device, including capturing data through the microphone and camera, and gathering location data.
In a statement, the group said: “NSO’s technology is licensed to authorized government agencies for the sole purpose of fighting crime and terror. WhatsApp said it was too early to know how many users had been affected by the vulnerability although it added that suspected attacks were highly-targeted.

Windows-RID-hijackingjpg-640x360.jpg?fit=640%2C360&ssl=1

security researcher named Sebastián Castro has uncovered a way of gaining admin rights and boot persistence on Windows PCs that is not only simple to execute but hard to stop as well.

RID Hijacking

This technique manipulates a parameter of Windows user accounts named Relative Identifier (RID). Account security identifiers (SIDs) that define a user’s permissions group, typically have a RID code appended at the end.

While there are several different RIDs available, the most commonly used ones are 500 for admin accounts and 501 for the standard guest account.

By manipulating the registry keys that store information about each Windows account, one can modify the RID associated each account.

RID hijacking

This RID can be changed and assigned to another account group which would also modify the permissions associated with it. Hence the term ‘RID Hijacking.’

Even though this method cannot be used remotely to hack a computer (unless it’s unprotected with a password and left exposed on the internet), attackers can gain control of a system either by malware or brute force.

They can simply grant admin permissions to a compromised low-level account, and thus create a permanent backdoor on a Windows PC with full system access.

To make it worse, this attack can be deployed without triggering an alert to the victim and works on Windows versions XP to 10 and from Server 2003 to Server 2016.

No response from Microsoft

What’s even more troubling is the fact that this exploit was found way back in December 2017 and Microsoft was notified about the same. But the company never responded or patched the vulnerability.

Thankfully, this technique has gone unnoticed by malware authors or at least no such incidents involving RID hijacking have surfaced yet.
