UK official wants police access to WhatsApp messages

A senior U.K. official is asking that law enforcement should be given access to encrypted messages on WhatsApp and similar services, a demand that is likely to fuel an ongoing debate over whether companies should create backdoors into their encryption technologies for investigators.

Khalid Masood, the terrorist who killed four people outside Parliament on Wednesday, had sent a message on WhatsApp a little before the attack, according to reports.

?We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp, and there are plenty of others like that, don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other,? Home Secretary Amber Rudd said on BBC One's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.

StarCraft Remastered brings 4K graphics, modern audio, and more to the legend...

Nearly 20 years after its release and StarCraft is still one of the best real-time strategy games ever made. So good, in fact, that it?s retained a dedicated fan base even with a modern sequel?three modern sequels, really?released and ready to play. And so maybe it?s time for a remaster.

Blizzard thinks so. Late last night Blizzard unveiled StarCraft: Remastered, arriving sometime this summer. Here?s the brief, straight from Blizzard?s official site:

?We?ve remastered our units, buildings, and environments, improved game audio, and broadened our supported resolutions. Illustrated interludes bring the struggles and victories of heroes like Artanis, Fenix, Tassadar, Raynor and Kerrigan to life like never before. Most importantly, the strategy gameplay that StarCraft perfected years ago remains unchanged.?

Inkle's space archaeologist adventure won't tell you if your lost language tr...

?The game isn?t going to tell you if you got that right.? It?s an ominous way to start a game demo, but one I?m not too surprised by after playing 80 Days and Sorcery!

Heaven?s Vault is Inkle?s new game, and I met up with studio co-founders Jon Ingold and Joseph Humfrey recently to get some hands-on time. At first glance it?s a huge step away from Inkle?s previous games?where 80 Days and Sorcery mostly played out in text, Heaven?s Vault features fully navigable 3D environments.

This week in games: Mod fixes Nier: Automata PC woes, Up's house floats into ...

So we?re about a month out from Christmas now and...wait, what?It?s only March? But we?ve already seen Nier, Mass Effect, Resident Evil, Stories Untold, Kona, with Thimbleweed Park and Yooka-Laylee right around the corner. Oh, and someZelda game for our console cousins. Crazy.

Not as crazy as some of this news, though: Assassin?s Creed abandons the silver screen for the smaller screen, the Up house floats over war-torn France, and Fallout 4 VR is ?the most incredible thing you?ve ever seen in your life.? Their words, not mine.

This is gaming news for March 20 to 24.

Apple: Macs and iPhones are safe from newly revealed CIA exploits

The Mac and iPhone exploits described in new documents attributed to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency were patched years ago, according to Apple.

WikiLeaks released a new set of files Thursday that supposedly came from the CIA. They contain details about the agency?s alleged malware and attack capabilities against iPhones and Mac computers.

The documents, dated 2012 and earlier, describe several ?implants? that the CIA can install in the low-level extensible firmware interface (EFI) of Mac laptop and desktop computers. These EFI rootkits allow the agency's macOS spying malware to persist even after the OS is reinstalled.

Google shuttering Talk, removing SMS support from Hangouts in new messaging s...

Messaging has never been Google?s strong suit. Aside from the various messaging apps from Android phone makers, it also has its own problems, with numerous overlapping apps that all have similar functions: Allo, Android Messages, Hangouts, Duo, Google Voice, and Google Talk. Now, Google is taking some much-needed steps to consolidate its efforts.

On June 26, Google will finally be closing Google Talk for good. The instant messaging service affectionately known as Gchat is one of Google?s oldest messaging apps, having been in existence since 2005. Way back in 2013, Google began encouraging Talk users to switch to Hangouts, and on June 26 the transition will be complete and its doors will be closed for good. On that day, any straggling Talk users will be automatically transitioned to Hangouts for good, where they can continue chatting with their friends. (And for anyone who was hanging on just for the interface, Google notes that the Dense Roster setting in Hangouts will provide a similar experience.)

Dell's 28-inch 4K monitor is just $300 right now

The world may be excited about Dell?s stunning new 32-inch 8K monitor going on sale, but at the consumer level, everyone?s still barely living in a 4K world. Amazon?s trying to help change that a little today, however?it?s currently selling a Dell 28-inch 4K Ultra high-definition monitor for $300.

The Dell S2817QR features 3840x2160 resolution, a gamer-friendly refresh rate of 60Hz, and a 2ms response time. It?s also capable of taking in content from two different sources and displaying them simultaneously using picture-in-picture or picture-by-picture mode.

Microsoft delays tools for third-party Cortana integrations

Microsoft has delayed the release of its tools for connecting other services to the Cortana virtual assistant, a decision that could cause it to lose ground in a crowded industry.

The tech titan announced the Cortana Skills Kit in December of last year, saying at the time that it would be released to the public in February. As Microsoft watcher Brad Sams noted on Twitter, Microsoft missed that deadline, and the Skills Kit remains locked in a private beta with a select group of partners. Microsoft didn?t offer an explanation for the delay, saying in a statement that the kit will be coming soon.

To punish Symantec, Google may distrust a third of the web's SSL certificates

Google is considering a harsh punishment for repeated incidents in which Symantec or its certificate resellers improperly issued SSL certificates. A proposed plan is to force the company to replace all of its customers? certificates and to stop recognizing the extended validation (EV) status of those that have it.

According to a Netcraft survey from 2015, Symantec is responsible for about one in every three SSL certificates used on the web, making it the largest commercial certificate issuer in the world. As a result of acquisitions over the years the company now controls the root certificates of several formerly standalone certificate authorities including VeriSign, GeoTrust, Thawte and RapidSSL.

Google Play faces cat and mouse game with sneaky Android malware

What?s the best way to avoid Android malware? Downloading all your apps from the Google Play store -- where software is vetted ? is perhaps the best advice.

But that doesn?t mean Google Play is perfect.

Security researchers do find new Android malware lurking on Google?s official app store. That?s because hackers are coming up with sneaky ways to infiltrate the platform, despite the vetting processes that protect it.

"Eventually, every wall can be breached," said Daniel Padon, a researcher at mobile security provider Check Point.

To be sure, most Android users will probably never encounter malware on the Google Play store. Last year, the amount of malicious software that reached the platform amounted to only 0.16 percent of all apps, according to a new report from Google.

How to set up two-factor authentication for your Apple ID and iCloud account

If you aren?t using two-factor authentication to protect your Apple ID and iCloud account, you really should do it today.

Three privacy tools that block your Internet provider from tracking you

It?s on. Recently, the United States Senate saw fit to allow Internet Service Providers to sell your web browsing history and other data to third parties. The action has yet to pass the House, but if it does, it means anyone concerned about privacy will have to protect themselves against over zealous data collection from their ISP.

Some privacy-conscious folks are already doing that?but many aren?t. If you want to keep your ISP from looking over your shoulder for data to sell to advertisers, here are three relatively simple actions you can take to get started.
