Full disk encryption is used world-wide, and can sometimes be instrumental to ensuring the privacy of people's most intimate pieces of information. As such, I believe the encryption scheme should be designed to be as "bullet-proof" as possible, against all types of adversaries. As we've seen, the current encryption scheme is far from bullet-proof, and can be hacked by an adversary or even broken by the OEMs themselves (if they are coerced to comply with law enforcement).
After covering a TrustZone kernel vulnerability and exploit in the previous blog post, I thought this time it might be interesting to explore some of the implications of code-execution within the TrustZone kernel. In this blo...

But all they do it make it compatible, say it's supported, but never fix the glaring issues that exist on all the same hardware because you can clear the cache and reboot or some other bs temp fix.

Do you like the idea of 2-factor authentication for your Google account, but hate the hassle of constantly entering changing numbers from Google Authenticator? Now there's a simpler way to secure your account your account with "Google prompt". When you login to your account authorized phone(s) will simply ask you a YES/NO question whether to allow a given login or not.
You can enable it at https://myaccount.google.com/security/signinoptions/two-step-verification

Mmmm...Aged coffee...
If the beans in your morning beverage could talk, they would probably use a first-generation iPhone to call up all their pals and tell them they finally made it out of storage and into the Big Show…

Yeah... don't buy crap coffee. I know green (un-roasted) beans are good for up to 2 years without losing flavor, 9 is probably not good.

Lunch special is a great deal. For $9 you get a choice of appetizer, the main dish and drink(thai ice tea/coffee, other beverage). The staff was very friendly and food tasted great. Thai ice tea was a little watered-down.
