Samsung Pay Vulnerability allows Hackers to make Fraudulent Transactions

Programmers demonstrate how simple it is for aggressors to hack Samsung Pay and make Fraudulent Transactions! 

The token-based installment framework created by Samsung called Samsung Pay is defenseless against acknowledge misrepresentation as programmers can utilize the tokens produced to do exchanges remotely, ZDNet reports. 
Samsung Pay is an attractive based contactless framework that was made keeping in mind the end goal to get rid of the requirement for entering your Visa points of interest anyplace. This framework comes as a standard in some more up to date Samsung telephones and works by method for making an interpretation of charge card information into tokens. 
Be that as it may, a security scientist has highlighted a defect in this component, and if that is misused then it can permit the programmer to do false exchanges on an alternate telephone. 
The issue has been highlighted by Salvador Mendoza, who said that the succession produced by the tokenization procedure can be anticipated as it is entirely restricted. He clarified that after the application has created the main token for a particular card, future tokens for the same card are less demanding to anticipate in light of the fact that they are not as secure. On the off chance that the tokens are then stolen, they can be utilized as a part of whatever other gadget to do fake exchanges. This is the most up to date type of charge card skimming. 
Mendoza said that he had tried this finding by sending his companion, who was in Mexico, the token for his card. He said that regardless of the administration not being accessible in Mexico his companion could do exchanges from his card with no issue. 
The focal undertaking in this disaster is taking the tokens. Mendoza has likewise exhibited how that should be possible. He fabricated a contraption that fit on his arm and could take attractive secure transmission remotely at whatever point he would get some individual's telephone. 
This contraption would then email the token to his inbox, which he can later arrange on another telephone. For Mendoza's situation, he stacked the token on an open-source attractive stripe spoofer called MagSpoof and could do exchanges. 
Mendoza has cautioned that a wide range of cards from all banks can be abused in this way except for blessing cards. This is on account of Samsung replaces the sign with a standardized identification checking if there should arise an occurrence of blessing cards. Concerning Samsung, they have not made any remark on whether they will investigate tackling this issue. 
They issued an announcement, however, saying that Samsung Pay has the absolute most progressive innovation being used at present, and if the organization finds a potential defenselessness, it would do whatever it can to determine it.

LINES by an unknown author

image credit I just found this poem in a very old book in our local library. There is no author name. I share it here :                         LINES The stars are dim, the moon shines cold, A gentle breeze sweeps o'er the lea, And softly falls the rippling sea,  On jutting reef and headland bold.
The chaffinch, eldest child of May, Impatient in his nest awakes, And with his rustling pinion shakes,  The dew that gems the hawthorn spray.
By mountain paths to pastures new, The lonely shepherd leads his flock, Light wreaths of mist on stream and rock,  Spread filmy veils of softest blue.
O ye, who through the slow-paced night, Have watched and wept, lift up lour eyes, Soon shall the golden morning rise, And crown the eastern hills with light.

What are bitcoin miners really solving? (collected from web)

What are bitcoin miners really solving? Here is an extremely simplified sketch of the problem, but it should give a pretty good idea of what the problem is. The data: This is the hash of the lastest block (shortened to 30 characters):   00000000000001adf44c7d69767585 These are the hashes of a few valid transactions waiting for inclusion (shortened).  5572eca4dd4 db7d0c0b845 And this the hash of one special transaction that you just crafted, which gives 25BTC (the current reward) to yourself:  916d849af76 Building the next block: Now, let's use a gross approximation of what a new block might look  like (the real one uses binary format). It contains the hash of the  previous block and the hashes of those 3 transactions:  00000000000001adf44c7d69767585--5572eca4dd4-db7d0c0b845-916d849af76-- Now let's do mining by hand! Our goal is to complete this block with a  nonce (a piece of garbage) such that the hash of the new block starts  with 13 zeros (considering the previous hash,…
