UK's May strikes $1.3 billion deal with Northern Irish party to prop up government

UK's May strikes $1.3 billion deal with Northern Irish party to prop up governmentBy Guy Faulconbridge and Kate Holton LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May struck a deal on Monday to prop up her minority government by agreeing to at least 1 billion pounds ($1.3 billion) in extra funding for Northern Ireland in return for the support of the province's biggest Protestant party. After over two weeks of talks and turmoil sparked by May's failure to win a majority in a June 8 snap election, she now has the parliamentary numbers to pass a budget and a better chance of passing laws to take Britain out of the European Union. May and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) leader Arlene Foster presided at the signing of a three-page so-called "confidence and supply" deal that is some way short of a more formal coalition agreement.

Ford testing plug-in hybrid EscapeThe possibility of a plug-in hybrid version of the Ford Escape dates back as far as 2009 when Ford actually took a prototype to the Detroit Auto Show, and a small batch of them were handed over to a California utility to be tried out. It now seems as though a plug-in hybrid variant of the current model could finally be arriving in showrooms for sale to the public, and it could possibly be unveiled as soon as next year. Although Ford has confirmed it's currently testing a new Escape PHEV prototype, no details have yet been released regarding the expected range, how it's likely to perform, or how much it will eventually cost to buy.

How the CIA hacks computers that aren’t even connected to the internet

How the CIA hacks computers that aren’t even connected to the internet

Air-gapped computers are supposed to be ultra-secure PCs that can’t be infected with malware that spreads with the help of the internet. That’s because of these computers, often connected to sensitive machines, aren’t also connected to the internet. You’d think these systems would be impenetrable by remote attacks and would require a hacker to be in the same room with the PC. But, unsurprisingly, the CIA developed tools that can infect air-gapped computers.

Wikileaks on Thursday published more than 150 pages of materials that explain how the CIA used USB drives to sneak malware to the air-gapped machines. After all, even these computers need to exchange data, and the only way to do it is using USB drives or external hard drives.

A platform called Brutal Kangaroo contains tools that can be used to target computer systems not connected to the internet, Ars Technica explains. Drifting Deadline is a tool installed on a computer of interest. When a USB drive is connected to it, the tool will infect it with malware that would then be passed to the air-gapped computer.

These advanced malware versions would be able to infect air-gapped computer immediately after the USB drive is plugged in. Some of them required no user interaction and could be activated by default behaviors in Windows, such as Windows Explorer displaying icons, or the letter corresponding to the thumb drive that was just inserted.

Microsoft said it patched some of these vulnerabilities, and they don’t work on any of the supported versions of Windows.

The documentation says that the first infection — the deployment of Drifting Deadline — might need manual access to a computer, but Ars argues that intrepid hackers could find ways to deliver the malware to the computer that would be used to transmit it to a USB stick.

Hong Kong activists stage China protest ahead of Xi visit

Hong Kong activists stage China protest ahead of Xi visitHong Kong pro-democracy protesters on Monday draped a black flag over a statue symbolising the city's return to China by Britain, days before a visit by President Xi Jinping to mark 20 years since the handover.

The sculpture of the bauhinia, which became the emblem of Hong Kong after the handover, was a present to the city from China in 1997 and stands outside the convention centre where Xi will attend anniversary events during a three-day visit starting Thursday.
