    LOL, I was just about to post the same news in another thread and looked to see if it was already posted. So, no new thread...

    Hackers steal secret crypto keys for NordVPN. Here’s what we know so far | Ars Technica

    Life is full of risks... security is a myth that is consistently exploited for secondary gain... by the bad guys and the good guys... both out to make a buck, by hook or by crook.

    And, on an equally positive note, there's this little gem that is sure to cause some excitement...


    Samsung's huge fingerprint reader flaw leaves millions of phones open to anyone | Komando.com

    According to reports from the BBC, a newly discovered security flaw in Samsung's Galaxy S10 and Note 10 smartphones allows anyone to bypass the device's fingerprint reader with a simple scan.

    For the worry warts among us, this is going to result in some loss of sleep.

    Boogie-man is gonna getcha kids.

    So the last thing we will hear after the Atomic Flash won't be the "BOOM!!", it will be a nation of Smart Devices waking up for their final time...making Coffee...turning on the Lights... playing random Music, and asking "What would you like to do today?"... BOOM!! :D

    Maybe the word Privacy should be added to forum board \ the topic here.
    ----

    Google reportedly collecting millions of Americans' healthcare data without patient consent.
    'Project Nightingale', reportedly amasses private health data from millions of Americans across 21 states.

    Google not at fault when some managers willingly hand over data, but what will all this kind of 'new normality' lead to, noone knows.
