  • Fortnite left players exposed to 'massive invasion of privacy' news

    Children playing Fortnite were exposed to a potential “massive invasion of privacy” thanks to an oversight in the game’s security, researchers have revealed.  The popular shooting game enjoyed by more than 80 million people around the world left users vulnerable to a flaw that if exploited, allowed hackers to steal virtual currency and read private conversations online. The bug was fixed in mid-December, according to researchers who shared their findings with Fortnite's developer, Epic Games. To take control, the researchers sent a message to their victim over social media including a malicious link.  Once clicked, the user’s Fortnite authentication token - code that confirms a user is logged in - could be captured by the attacker without the user entering their username or password.  “Fortnite is one of the most popular games played mainly by kids. These flaws provided the ability for a massive invasion of privacy,” said Oded Vanunu, head of products vulnerability research for Check Point, who found they were able to access target accounts.  Fortnite | Read more It comes as the police’s fraud arm warned that scammers are using the multiplayer Battle Royale-style game to trick young players into handing over their parents’ bank details.  Criminals are increasingly targeting children on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube with adverts claiming to offer free "V-bucks", a currency used to buy extras like character outfits.  After clicking the link, victims can be asked questions about their account, which the perpetrator uses to log in, and steal credit or debit card details that are stored there. Fortnite fever has gripped the nation since it launched in July 2017, with parents growing concerned that their children have become "addicted" to the multiplayer title.  Users could protect themselves in future using  by turning on two-factor authentication which prompts the player to enter a security code sent to their email address upon logging in. Epic Games have been contacted for comment.

  • Brexit deal defeat makes 'softer, later' exit more likely: Goldman Sachs

    A vote in Britain's parliament on Tuesday crushing Prime Minister May's deal to leave the European Union has made a softer, later Brexit, or even no Brexit at all, slightly more likely, Goldman Sachs said on Wednesday. "We think the prospect of a disorderly 'no deal' Brexit has faded further," Goldman Sachs' European economist Adrian Paul wrote in a note. The bank maintains its base case scenario that "a close variant" of the current Brexit deal will ultimately command a majority in the House of Commons.

While richer nations must drastically slash their meat consumption, regions such as South Asia currently experience a dearth of calories and protein from a lack of red meat. Under the new regimen, adults would be limited to 14 grammes of red meat a day -- equivalent to half a rasher of bacon -- and get no more than 30 calories from it.

  • McDonald's loses EU trademark for Big Mac after 'David and Goliath' battle with Irish restaurant news

    McDonald's has been stripped of its European Union trademark for the Big Mac hamburger in humiliating defeat after a “David and Goliath” legal battle with Supermac’s, an Irish fast food chain. In a landmark judgment with immediate effect, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) said McDonald's has failed to prove “genuine use” of the Big Mac trademark as a burger or restaurant. "Never mind David versus Goliath, this unique landmark decision is akin to the Connacht team winning against the All Blacks," said Pat McDonagh, the managing director and founder of Galway based Supermac’s. “This is the end of the McBully”. “Just because McDonald's has deep pockets and we are relatively small in context doesn’t mean we weren’t going to fight our corner," he added. Supermac’s has about 100 restaurant in Ireland and was founded in 1978. It has been locked in a legal battle with McDonald’s since 2015 when it planned to expand into the UK and rest of the EU. The US company objected to Supermac’s applying for an EU-wide trademark, with lawyers sending a 41-page treatise arguing it was too similar to McDonald’s. “Supermac” was Mr McDonagh’s nickname when he played Gaelic Football in his youth. In April 2017, Supermac asked EUIPO to cancel the US fast food giant’s trademark on “Mc” and “Big Mac” and accusing it of “trademark bullying” by registering protected names and storing them up unused to stifle competition. McDonald’s lawyers provided signed affidavits from its executives and examples of adverts and packaging and its wikipedia page to show it sold Big Macs across the EU and deserved the pan-EU trademark. EUIPO said the evidence was “insufficient” in a judgment, which because trademarks can be registered at both EU and national level, will not lead to the Big Mac losing all protection. McDonald’s also have the right to appeal, which they are likely to exercise. This now opens the door for the decision to be made by the European trademark office to allow us to use our SuperMac as a burger across Europe,” said Mr McDonagh. Carissa Kendall-Windless, senior associate at intellectual property law firm EIP, said: “This decision is a significant one, partly because it serves as a warning to multinational companies that they can no longer simply file trademark applications without a genuine intention to use it”.
