This is how police request customer data from Amazon

By iwano@_84

Anyone can access portions of a web portal, used by law enforcement to request customer data from Amazon, even though the portal is supposed to require a verified email address and password.

Amazon’s law enforcement request portal allows police and federal agents to submit formal requests for customer data along with a legal order, like a subpoena, a search warrant, or a court order. The portal is publicly accessible from the internet, but law enforcement must register an account with the site in order to allow Amazon to “authenticate” the requesting officer’s credentials before they can make requests.

Only time sensitive emergency requests can be submitted without an account, but this requires the user to “declare and acknowledge” that they are an authorized law enforcement officer before they can submit a request.

The portal does not display customer data or allow access to existing law enforcement requests. But parts of

How ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator’ became a ‘living game’ with Azure AI

By iwano@_84

Microsoft Flight Simulator is a triumph, one that fully captures the meditative experience of soaring through the clouds. But to bring the game to life, Microsoft and developer Asobo Studio needed more than an upgraded graphics engine to make its planes look more realistic. They needed a way to let you believably fly anywhere on the planet, with true-to-life topography and 3D models for almost everything you see, something that’s especially difficult in dense cities.

A task like that would be practically impossible to accomplish by hand. But it’s the sort of large-scale data processing that Microsoft’s Azure AI was built for. The company was able to push 2.5 petabytes worth of Bing Maps satellite photo data through Azure machine learning to construct the virtual world of Flight Simulator. You could say it’s really the cloud that brings the game to life. Azure also helps to model real-time weather. (That’s

Apple’s SVP of Software points out that it takes Computational Power to make Apple Pencil’s new ‘Scribble’ feature work in Real Time

By iwano@_84

 

A computer’s ability to read handwriting, then translate it into letters and numbers it can understand, has been a challenge going back decades. Think of the hit-or-miss capabilities of the Windows Transcriber in the early 2000s, or the PalmPilot in the late ’90s. Handwriting is so nuanced that just analyzing a static letter’s shape doesn’t work.

 

Alexander George, noted in his Popular Mechanics report that “Apple, it seems, has found a solution. In the newest update to iPadOS, when you write with the Apple Pencil, the iPad can understand your scrawl and, with Scribble, convert it to typed text.

 

It works like most machine learning—examples inform rules that help predict and interpret a totally new request—but taps into a smarter data set and greater computing power to do what had stumped generations of previous machines.

 

While Alexa and Siri rely on a connection to faraway data centers to handle their

Google’s Sundar Pichai says future of office is employee ‘on-sites’

By iwano@_84

  • Google CEO Sundar Pichai said the company is “reconfiguring” its offices amid a more permanent shift to working from home. 
  • Pichai discussed the future of work at Google during an interview for Time 100 this week. 
  • While he doesn’t see working in the office going away altogether, he described the office as a space for “on-sites” — presumably, days where employees, who mostly work from home, gather in the office. 
  • Pichai also said he made the decision to have employees work from home until next summer in order to boost productivity and give workers a sense of certainty during an uncertain time.

Hungarian Banks, Telecoms Services Briefly Hit by Cyber Attack: Magyar Telekom | Technology News

By iwano@_84

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Some Hungarian banking and telecommunication services were briefly disrupted by a powerful cyber attack on Thursday launched from computer servers in Russia, China and Vietnam, telecoms firm Magyar Telekom

said on Saturday.

The event was a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, a cyber attack in which hackers attempt to flood a network with unusually high volumes of data traffic in order to paralyse it.

The volume of data traffic in the attack was 10 times higher than the amount usually seen in DDoS events, the company said.

“That means that this was one of the biggest hacker attacks in Hungary ever, both in its size and complexity,” it said.

“Russian, Chinese and Vietnamese hackers tried to launch a DDoS attack against Hungarian financial institutions, but they tried to overwhelm the networks of Magyar Telekom as well,” the company added in a statement.

The attack, which took place in several

Judge rejects TikTok creators’ request to delay ban, says they won’t suffer ‘irreparable harm’

By iwano@_84

A judge in Pennsylvania has rejected a request from three TikTok content creators to temporarily block a ban on the app set to go into effect Sunday night, which would bar new downloads from Google and Apple’s app stores in the US.

Douglas Marland, Cosette Rinab, and Alec Chambers said they “earn a livelihood from the content they post on TikTok,” saying the platform’s “For You” page is unique among social media platforms, because its algorithm allows “little-known creators to show their content to a large audience,” according to the court filing.

Marland has 2.7 million TikTok subscribers, Rinab has 2.3 million, and Chambers has 1.8 million. The three argued that they would “lose access to tens of thousands of potential viewers and creators every month, an effect amplified by the looming threat to close TikTok altogether.”
