Black Hatters Reveil SMS Security Concern

Speaking to the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, Charlie Miller and Collin Mulliner told the audience that smartphones operating Apple's, Microsoft's, or Google's operating systems were vulnerable to an SMS based attack that would be executed by code arriving in a text message. The malicious code could knock a phone off of a network, access data on the phone, or access the programs installed on the phone. The pair have published their findings to encourage the OS makers to fix the holes and have said the they contacted Apple, Microsoft, and Google directly but Google is the only one who has addressed the issue todate.

Apple Won't Allow Google Voice Application In iTunes Store

Yesterday Apple decided that it would not allow Google to distribute its Google Voice application on iTunes, shutting out iPhone users from the much-anticipated service. Google Voice enables you to make cheap international calls, consolidate your phone numbers into one Google voice account, allows you to manage where your calls will be routed (cell, home, office, etc.) and provides multiple interfaces to your voice messages, including e-mailed text. Apple seems to have lost it's voice, declining to comment on the matter. One more reason to love my android phone!

Hubble Testing Halts To Capture New Image Of Jupiter

The Hubble telescope has been in test mode since an upgrade and repair mission in May, however NASA scientists brought the Hubble to life on Thursday so that they could capture a shot of Jupiter's newest scar. "Because we believe this magnitude of impact is rare, we are very fortunate to see it with Hubble," said Amy Simon-Miller of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "Details seen in the Hubble view shows a lumpiness to the debris plume caused by turbulence in Jupiter's atmosphere." There has been a great deal of interest in Jupiter since an amateur astronomer in Australia noticed the new mark, which is speculated to have been created by a small comet or asteroid plunging into Jupiter's atmosphere and disintegrating, early Monday.
