Selfies kill more people than sharks -“there is no sin except stupidity”

Selfie is a recent phenomenon and has been appointed as the word of 2013 by Oxford Dictionary. Google estimates that 24 billion selfies were uploaded to Google Photos in 2015. About 1 million selfies are clicked per day in 18 to 24 demographic. Pew Research Center showed that nearly 55 percent of millennials have posted a selfie on social media services.

Depending on how you are narcissistic and how selfies you took, you may not be aware of the most alarming piece of news related selfie-: kill Selfies. Literally. In fact, a Conde Nast Traveler Article selfie compared death to death by shark attack and concluded that death selfie won in 2015, which seems rather shocking until you look at the number of victims of shark attack and realize that this is not so high. (Sharks usually kill about six people each year.) Yet even a death as something preventable like selfie executed stupidly too.

Most selfie-related deaths occur when the selfie taker is in a risky but impressive position as standing in front of a moving train or a charging bull or posing with a grenade. In a recent tragedy, a Polish couple died before their children after he jumped a security barrier and tried to take a selfie on the edge of a cliff.

Now it is interesting to note that people are dying to do stupid things all the time, so really this is just another version of climbing Mount Everest or doing acrobatics atop a skyscraper 62 story, except that it is accessible to almost everyone with a smartphone. So as much as we would all like to believe that most humans are smart enough not to die in a crash selfie, you should never underestimate the power of ‘it will not happen to me. “

DeepFakes – Everyone Is Making AI-Generated Fake Porn Now

The Internet is home to at least 14.678 deepfakes, according to a new report from DeepTrace, a company that builds tools to identify synthetic materials. But most of them were created not to spoil the elections.

Top: Deepfakes arrived on the scene at the end of 2017. The word was used to describe the false pornography generated by AI, with the heads of actresses on the bodies of the adult film stars. Since then, the sense of “deepfakes” has expanded to refer to any type of manipulated video, as Mark Zuckerberg with a fake speech about Facebook. This has stoked fears about the end of the truth and potential deepfakes to swing elections.


The Internet is for porn: The report found that most videos are not trying to influence politics. At least 96% of deepfakes were still good old fake porn. “Pornography Deepfake is a phenomenon that exclusively targets women and night,” the authors write. All contained fake porn women, most famous actresses and musicians. (Other deepfakes nonpornographic YouTube included most men.) The number itself is not high, but it is worrying that it is growing so quickly.

Holding back the law: The issue has attracted the attention of legislators. In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has signed into law two bills that limit what people can do with deepfakes. A law making it illegal to distribute malicious deepfake a politician within two months of an election. (The ACLU and the Electronic Frontier Foundation have pushed back, saying the law is too broad and ill political speech.) The second deepfake law approximates how the manipulations are actually used. It allows people to sue if their image is used in deepfake sex without consent.

According deepfakeapp on imgur, anyone can download and run FakeApp can create one of these videos with just one or two high quality face fake videos they want. The wiki subreddit FakeApp says is “a community developed desktop application to run the algorithm deepfakes without installing Python tensorflow, etc.,” and that all you need to run it is a “good GPU [unit graphics processing, the kind that sets high-end 3D video require] with CUDA support [parallel computing platform from NVIDIA and the programming model]. “If users are not the appropriate GPU, they can also rent cloud graphics processors through services such as Google Cloud Platform. Running the entire process from data extraction to Image conversion picture of one side over another, would take about eight to 12 hours if it is done correctly. Other people reported spending much longer, sometimes with disastrous results.

North Sentinel Island – Tribe on the remote island of India would kill anyone who tried Coming ashore

North Sentinel Island is located in the Bay of Bengal. It’s a bit far from civilization and no one has been able to make contact with the native inhabitants. The island is one of the last places left on earth not civilized!

An Indian tribe has lived on the island with very limited contact with outsiders. Anyone who has tried to explore the island has been attacked or killed directly. North Sentinel is so dangerous for foreigners that the Indian government has established an exclusion zone three miles in an effort to prevent further violence.

On January 26, 2006, two fishermen killed by the tribe when their boat was floating near the island. A Coast Guard helicopter Indian has tried to recover the bodies of the fishermen, but was prevented from landing when he was greeted with a hail of arrows tribesmen.

On August 2, 1981, the ship grounded on the reef Spring Island North Sentinel. Within a short period of time, shipmates noticed the motionless boat men on the bank carried spears and arrows and construction of boats on the beach. The captain radioed a drop of arms to the ship could defend himself, but did not receive them. Fortunately, heavy seas kept the islanders enough for the crew to be rescued by a helicopter time.

After the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, the Indian government sent a helicopter to check the inhabitants of the island. While other nearby islands were strongly affected, Sentinelese appeared to have been unharmed. The helicopter observed several members of the clan shooting arrows and throwing stones at the plane floating in an apparent attempt to repel it.

According to the figure between 50 and 400, the Sentinelese have lived in isolation on the island for 60,000 years. The treetops depth makes it difficult to observe the Sentinelese from the air, but based on limited observation data are supposed to hunters.

The island has been in the news recently for the death of former US adventurer John Allen Chau 27 years who tried to enter the place and communicate with tribal members without taking proper permission from the Indian government which is required to enter the area.

But what is more interesting than the note are the views that people who have recently visited the place shared on Google Search. Beautiful scenery not so good arrows meat in the body, the opinions on North Sentinel Island tell a strange and funny story.

Researchers exploit the system that sends presidential emergency alerts

Researchers discovered a manner to exploit the system that sends presidential emergency alerts to our phones, simulating their method on a 50,000 seat football stadium in Colorado with a ninety percentage achievement charge.

Researchers at the university of Colorado Boulder posted a paper this month that details how they were capable of spoof assault the wi-fi Emergency Alert (WEA) software, which could ship out AMBER indicators, presidential signals, and each extreme and severe threats to safety.

Emergency alerts are sent to every cell tool within variety of the broadcasting mobile tower. but the researchers word that a malicious cell tower channel is capable of fooling the device, and in turn sending out an inauthentic emergency alert to all gadgets within its variety.

The researchers tested this LTE vulnerability by using developing their very own malicious cellular tower channel using off-the-shelf hardware and open-supply software to deploy their exploit, which in one instance become used in an test at Folsom subject on the college of Colorado Boulder.

The researchers didn’t perform an actual assault on a live crowd on the stadium or on real cell gadgets, Eric Wustrow, a researcher on the paper, instructed Gizmodo in an e mail. The assessments performed have been rather accomplished in remoted RF protect bins, Wustrow stated, “and our analysis of Folsom area changed into a aggregate of empirically collected data and simulation.” A screenshot from the paper beneath displays what those spoof attacks looked like on both a Samsung Galaxy S8 and an iPhone X.

Student briefly become the owner of Google.com domain

It happened a few years ago! Google forgot to renew and the name was snapped up by a student who paid $12.00 for it. He initially thought the listing was an error, but was surprised when his payment went through and he got a confirmation email saying he was now the owner of the world’s most-visited domain.

He owned it for a minute, and the reports say that he ‘even had access to the inner workings of the site’ though I don’t how that can be possible.

He actually bought it through Google domains who had listed it as available, and received an email congratulating him on now owning the worlds most visited domain! Google apparently paid him a fee that looks like Google 6006.13, but when they learned he was donating it to charity, they doubled it!

Google regularly gives financial rewards to computer researchers who alert them to bugs or errors in their services – in the blog post, they revealed that they paid out over $2 million (£1.4 million) to more than 300 security tipsters in 2015 alone.

Researcher Tomasz Bojarski was the most prolific bug-finder of 2015, spotting 70 bugs in Google throughout the year. One of these bugs, ironically, was found in the web form where users can report security flaws.
