Police took away the iPad, his iPhone and his laptop. The iPhone was found to also have been used in private browsing mode and the history had been “switched off”, the court heard.Three search capabilities were said to have been present on his devices: Safari, Chrome and DuckDuckGo, the anonymous search engine. DuckDuckGo, a web-based search engine that does not track your internet searches, is available as an iOS app.Police interviewed McGarrity and it was said that he “didn’t understand what was meant by private browsing”. He maintained that he hadn’t altered the device settings, though the court heard this morning that he was warned in 2014 about using private browsing.Shaven-headed McGarrity, wearing a plain grey t-shirt with a small Union Flag at the back of the neck and blue Adidas tracksuit bottoms, leaned on the rail of the dock as his solicitor made his plea in mitigation to the judge.His solicitor, from London firm Dalton Holmes Gray – who refused to confirm his name after the hearing – said in McGarrity’s defence that he “suffered from clinical depression” and was undergoing cognitive behavioural therapy, as well as receiving employment support allowance."No substantive offending has resulted from the breach," asserted McGarrity’s solicitor.District Judge Susan Bayne, sitting alone, adjourned the sentencing hearing to a later date. Indicating that she wanted to make a new sexual harm prevention order against McGarrity, she said the court had insufficient information to do so this morning.

Lenovo, Intel and others are aiming to make online payments more secure by bringing the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) biometric authentication standard to PCs.The fingerprint scanning technology is implemented in Lenovo’s latest Yoga 910 laptop, which is one of those consumer 2-in-1 convertible gizmos with a fold-back screen that lets it be used like a laptop. It relies on some hardware security features implemented in Intel’s 7th-gen Core processors, but also uses biometric fingerprint sensor technology from Synaptics and payment processing from PayPal to deliver a FIDO-compliant solution.The goal, according to Lenovo, is to help reduce online fraud and increase security, while making authentication “nearly frictionless" with biometrics secured by hardware-level protection replacing those so-easily stolen passwords.In actual fact, Intel, Lenovo, PayPal and Synaptics are all members of the FIDO Alliance, the industry body setup several years ago to address the lack of interoperability among authentication devices. While this has enjoyed some take up in the mobile world, the Yoga 910 brings FIDO authentication to PC users for the first time, according to Lenovo.

As well as offering greater security than passwords, the technology is also intended to be more convenient. Once the user has registered with a FIDO-compliant website, they no longer need to enter a password to be authenticated, but simply swipe their finger over the built-in sensor and are instantly logged in.And according to the FIDO Alliance, this is just the start of the FIDO effort to bring password-free authentication to PC users, although it remains to be seen whether the standard has any teeth (geddit?)“The W3C is working to make FIDO web APIs a formal web standard, which will bring FIDO authentication to web browsers across all platforms, said a statement on the organization’s website.In addition, Microsoft is said to have made a “strong commitment” to implementing FIDO compatibility with Windows Hello, the biometric security features in Windows 10, and Google has already FIDO-enabled its Chrome browser with support for second factor authentication via its Security Key program.A 49-year-old IT bloke from Essex has been sentenced to five years’ imprisonment on two counts of fraud after his cunning plan to steal £450,000 from his employer was uncovered… almost immediately.

Adeshola Dada, of Watts Crescent, Purfleet, Essex, was employed in the IT department of Genesis Housing Association, where he changed the passwords of two colleagues working in the financial department.Dada subsequently attempted to divert payments for genuine suppliers into the account of co-conspirator Ansar Ali’s company. Pretty much straight after the event, an internal audit team at Genesis discovered that a payment of £138,788 had been made to a bank account held by Pathmeads Property Services, which Genesis had no contracts with.Once alerted to the fraudulent transaction, the team managed to stop a further payment of £290,090 that was due to be effected a few days later.While Dada’s job title was that of an ICT Analyst, Court News UK reported that Southwark Crown Court heard his role was closer to that of a sysadmin, as it "involved supporting users with all computer based access and systems performance issues, including password creation and resetting."A forensic investigator brought in by Genesis discovered that the attempt to divert the payments was committed by a user connecting to the businesses’ systems remotely using the username and password of an employee who had left the company.

Southwark Crown Court heard that Genesis’ systems logs showed that Keys’ password had been changed, and forensic analysis further showed that Dada, in fact, had been the only person with password reset privileges on Genesis’ systems.When Dada’s laptop was seized, Dada told police he would loan it out to people and not keep a record of whom he had loaned it to. He was found guilty of two counts of fraud on 19 August and was sentenced today.Alongside him, Ansar Ali, 43, of Limehouse Causeway was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, suspended for two years and ordered to carry out 225 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to acquiring criminal property at an earlier hearingTwo others were sentenced for their roles in the scam, which involved receiving sums of around £10,000 into their bank accounts.James McMasters, 24, of The Heights, Northolt, Middlesex was found guilty of acquiring criminal property. He was sentenced to one year imprisonment, suspended for two years. He was also ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.Danielle Gillian Brown, 25, of Church Lane, N8 was found guilty of the same offence. She was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment, suspended for one year. Cloudera says Apache Impala is 10x faster than Amazon Redshift and has 275 per cent better cost efficiency.

On Thursday, the 30-year-old marched into the Apple store located in Toison d’Or shopping Centre in Dijon carrying the steel ball in a gloved hand. He was accompanied by someone videoing the scene, which suggests premeditation.He then proceeded to pick up iPhones, place them flat on the counter, and smash their screens in using the ball.While doing so he rails against the staff, claiming that he had bought a shiny new laptop from them that had failed and he wanted his money back.While this was going on, staff stood around doing nothing and keeping clear. He then moved on to some MacBooks and carried on his smashing activities before a security guard finally turned up and escorted him from the store.
Once outside, more security guards appeared and surrounded the man. After a full and frank exchange of views, the attacker put his hands around the throat of one of the guards and the others piled in to restrain him.The man has since been detained by police and is currently facing criminal charges. Dijon prosecutor Marie-Christine Tarrare said that the man had caused €50,000 worth of damage to the shop’s stock.

Getting stiffed on a new purchase is never fun, but the gentleman involved should have taken a lead from we rosbifs and shown some sang froid. A disgraced former Territorial Army sergeant convicted of making indecent images of children has pleaded guilty to using private browsing mode on his iPhone and iPad.Paul Martin McGarrity, a 56-year-old of Mirabel House, Wandsworth Bridge Road, Fulham, appeared at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court this morning to be sentenced, following his earlier plea at the same court.The former Royal Signals SNCO was ordered “not to use any device capable of accessing the internet unless it has the capacity to retain and display the history of internet use and he makes such device available on request to a police officer”, as part of a sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) made by a court martial at Bulford Camp in 2011.The SOPO was made after McGarrity, who was on full-time attachment to a regular Royal Signals unit, pleaded guilty to two counts of making an indecent photograph of a child. The order also said he "cannot take any photograph of a child under 18 unless authorised, expressed or implied, by a parent or legal guardian."

He pleaded guilty to breaching the SOPO, contrary to sections 103I(1) and (3) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, in August. Sentencing was then adjourned for pre-sentence reports to be completed.According to the Crown at today’s hearing, police were empowered to make spot checks on McGarrity to check his compliance with the SOPO. When they arrived unannounced at his flat on 19 February this year, they found him using a laptop and an iPad. McGarrity agreed to allow the police to inspect the devices “and within a couple of minutes it was noticed” that he was using the iPad in private browsing mode.Police took away the iPad, his iPhone and his laptop.

One of customer got in touch to report that BT customers are currently being locked into their BT Yahoo email service.A recent screengrab of a customer attempting to use this function seen by The Register reads: “Sorry the delete feature is currently unavailable. This feature will become available by the end of September."The customer said BT/Yahoo! had also made it impossible for BT customers to configure the forwarding of emails to a third party address from their BT Yahoo addresses.He said: "BT is being about as communicative as Trappist monks about this."He added: "BT refuse to acknowledge any contractual responsibilities to customers with regard to email as they see email as a freebie add-on to the broadband service."Other customers have also complained on BT’s forum. One said: "Help! I have tried to delete email sub accounts but unable to do so. Any help and or advice will be greatly appreciated."Another complained: "It’s October BTYahoo get it sorted or did you mean September 2020?"Apparently these problems also affect customers who have migrated to the new BTMail email provider Critical Path/Openwave.

A BT spokesman told The Register: “We apologise to customers who have been unable to delete their Yahoo! account. We are working quickly to sort this out and expect to have this fixed soon.” US trade watchdog the FTC has terminated second-hand electronics reseller Laptop & Desktop Repair in Sparks, Nevada – after the biz shafted people out of millions of dollars.The company, operating under such names as cashforiphones.com, cashforlaptops.com, ecyclebest.com, smartphonetraders.com and sell-your-cell.com, offered online quotes for used smartphones and laptops.Once the quote had been calculated, people sent in their hardware for assessment and were given a much lower revised quote – typically between 3 and 10 per cent of the original amount offered.They had three to five days to request that their hardware be returned, but the FTC found that the company seldom answered its phones and was closed on weekends, even though the firm counted Saturdays and Sundays in its time limits."This is a classic case of bait-and-switch updated for the 21st century," said Jessica Rich, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection."The defendants in this case lure consumers with false promises of generous payments, then hold consumers hostage once they have mailed their devices to the company."After an investigation by the FTC and the US state of Georgia, the biz has now been shut down and had its assets seized. The FTC said it had received thousands of complaints about the firm, which kind of makes you wonder what took them so long.

A pair of cybercriminals responsible for laundering millions of pounds stolen using a banking trojan have been sentenced to a combined total of 12 years in prison.Pavel Gincota, 32, and Ion Turcan, 35, are Moldovan nationals with Romanian citizenship. The duo made over £2.5m in criminal profits using the banking trojan Dridex, the National Crime Agency and London’s Metropolitan Police Service revealed.The pair were charged with conspiracy to possess false identification and conspiracy to launder money, while Gincota was also charged with a separate money laundering offence in relation to a cyber fraud in Germany in 2012, in which the victim lost €25,000.Gincota and Turcan pleaded guilty to all of the charges against them and were sentenced yesterday at the Old Bailey to five years and eight months and seven years respectively.Over two years the pair “funded a luxury lifestyle” with their ill-gotten gains, garnered from more than 220 bank accounts which they had accessed after infecting their victims’ machines.According to Court News UK (behind paywall), the investigation into the pair began in June 2015 "after more than half a million pounds was stolen from a medical research company and laundered through a series of Barclays accounts".

They were reportedly already under investigation by the National Crime Agency when they were arrested by the Met in February 2015 for being in possession of multiple false identity documents. During a search of their home in Yiewsley, West Drayton, the cops seized further fraudulent documents and several electronic devices.Forensic examination of these devices by the NCA’s National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) confirmed that a laptop belonging to Gincota had been used to control the bank accounts through which the money was laundered.Steve Brown, senior investigating officer at the NCCU, said: “Pavel Gincota and Ion Turcan were serial money launderers who processed millions of pounds worth of stolen money through hundreds of bank accounts to fund their lifestyles.“Those involved in the most serious types of organised crime depend on the services provided by money launderers like Gincota and Turcan to hide their criminal profits."He continued: “The NCA will continue to work closely with our partners to prevent organised criminals from accessing the proceeds of their crimes and to bring them to justice.”

Google today announced new phones, VR kit and home gadgetry. But it didn’t announce a tablet. And nobody cared.We’ve known for ages that tablet sales are declining. The most recent tablet sales data we’ve covered has the market at about 150m units a year. Apple has a quarter of the market and Samsung has about 15 per cent. Vendors in third through fifth place – Lenovo, Huawei and Amazon – won’t sell ten million units a year.The tablet market’s sliding even faster than the PC market – by about 12 per cent a year compared to five per cent for PCs.We can also see that it takes more and more effort to get a tablet off the shelf: Apple has teamed with Deloitte to point out how an iPad might make sense at work, having already allied itself with IBM. Microsoft, meanwhile, has bundled training with its Surface-as-a-service pay-by-the-month plan for its hybrid laptop/fondleslab Surface products. Those hybrids, by the way, are considered the sole bright spot in the PC market.

And now Google’s act of omission shows us that the company’s assault on our personal space does not include a frontline role for a tablet computer.Which is not to say that tablets are doomed. They are clearly very handy devices in many applications. But the lack of a Google tab clearly shows us the fondleslab’s not a core component of the evolving connected home. And that their omission won’t be mourned. Roundtable On the afternoon of Oct 12, in central London, we’ll be gathering a select group of senior IT leaders together to discuss the changing nature of end user computing.We’ll kic off by exploring the digital workplace of the future and the likely shift from devices to users and infrastructure. We’ll touch on the realities of making the shift happen – not just the technology to create a modern and open environment, but also how to manage all the stakeholders and budgets.Fundamentally we’ll explore how the increasingly heterogeneous world of multiple operating systems, devices and clouds are changing the way we think about end user computing.It promises to be both a lively and useful discussion. If you’d like to join us, please register your interest here and we’ll be in touch to confirm your attendance.A French man has been charged after he stormed into an Apple store and smashed up iPhones and MacBooks using a metal ball that is more commonly used for the traditional game of pétanque.
