If your phone or tablet has #Android 4.1.1, it could be vulnerable to so-called "reverse #Heartbleed " attacks. Here's how to find out if you're vulnerable and fix the problem: http://bit.ly/1hSEdzy

(article by +Graham Cluley) #mobile #security
Millions of Android smartphones and tablets are at risk of being attacked via the Heartbleed bug, more than a week after the security vulnerability was first made public.

If you're developing a TV pilot, film script, or comic book script, check out Javier Grillo-Marxuach's collection of all his sold scripts, outlines, and pitch documents. As he describes it, "it's like a free film school!"

Tonight I got to sit in the Captain's chair of the Enterprise and see the real Space Shuttle Endeavour up close. Thanks to #MacTechConf for an awesome evening!

+Graham Cluley It sounds suspiciously like you're trying to start a flame war. ;o)

I've read in the Wikipedia article about Torchwood that Doctor Who's "target audience contains both adults and children" (as opposed to Torchwood, which "is aimed at an older audience").

I haven't seen any of the original Doctor Who series (but I've noticed that the new series makes references to it; I'm currently viewing Season 5 [2010] on Netflix). I seem to remember it being on TV when I was a kid, but I never watched it. (Probably because it looked old, and starred an old man… and because my dad usually picked something else. I imagine the original Doctor Who series was more popular in Britain.) My dad has always liked sci-fi shows. Most of what I know about Star Trek was learned watching the various series (particularly TNG, and also DS9 and Voyager) with my dad. We owned the Star Wars Trilogy (Special Edition) on VHS.

Now the only videos I own of any of these shows are the widescreen editions of Star Wars Episodes III-VI on DVD (Episodes I and II weren't up to par with III-VI, IMO). And apparently I have some prequels to Doctor Who Season 6 (2011) episodes, which must have been free downloads on iTunes. Again, I'm still on Season 5, so no spoilers please (or "Spoilers!" as River Song often says with a smirk).

So… if you have an iPhone 5S with fingerprint scanning enabled, anyone can unlock it by merely knocking you unconscious. Brilliant.

The VNC Viewer app for #iOS (developed by RealVNC) is currently #free (it's usually $9.99, so grab it while you can):
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vnc-viewer/id352019548

If you haven't heard of #VNC , it's a way to control a computer as though you're sitting in front of it (more or less; the mobile interface is a little clunky). It's not a secure protocol, though; passwords are sent in clear text, so keep that in mind if you decide to use it while connected to public networks (or make sure you've established a secure VPN connection prior to connecting to a VNC server). #Apple #tech #sysadmin #utilities

Computer security geek. Podcast Producer at MacTech Magazine. LDS.
Introduction

My name is Josh Long (also known as "the JoshMeister"). I'm a computer security geek and a Latter-day Saint. I podcast and write about Apple, tech, information security, and religion. In recent years I've also been known for writing and podcasting about the TV show LOST.

I currently work full-time as a computer Network Specialist for a large organization, supporting numerous sites throughout the largest geographic county in the contiguous United States. Additionally, I'm the Podcast Producer and Host for MacTech Magazine, and I'm also known for my computer security blog, "the JoshMeister on Security."

I have three degrees including a master's degree in Information Technology concentrating in Internet Security and a bachelor's degree in IT concentrating in Network Administration (summa cum laude), and I've taken doctorate-level coursework in Business Administration and Computer and Information Security.  I'm a CompTIA Security+ and Network+ certified professional.
