Paul Pogba kills everything – Morgan declares

first_imgWillie Morgan has launched a scathing attack against Paul Pogba, claiming the Manchester United midfielder is too slow and cumbersome.The United legend claims that Jose Mourinho must drop the Frenchman in order to have a chance of defeating Liverpool on Sunday.United travel to Anfield this weekend looking to reduce the gap between both teams to 13 points, after a disastrous start to the 2018-19 season.The Red Devils have only managed to win seven of their 16 matches in the league so far and face the possibility of missing out on a UEFA Champions League, already eight points behind Chelsea down in sixth place.Pogba has been criticized for his poor performances over the last few weeks and seems disinterested on the pitch, with rumours of a possible move to Barcelona on the horizon.“The game against Fulham, albeit it was Fulham, they played really well,” Morgan told Love Sports Radio.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“They were quick, they were moving around, there was no Pogba in the team. He kills everything anyway, he’s just so slow and cumbersome. It was the first time they actually looked like a team.”“If he puts Matic and Pogba in midfield, the game stops every time they get the ball,” Morgan added.“So you have got to get the young lads in, a bit of movement, move the ball quicker. Rashford is a free player and can play anywhere, the kid is really good. I think we’ll get a result.”“Again it comes down to who does he play. If he plays Pogba and Matic we won’t win. If he plays the team that he played against Fulham I think we’ll get a result.”last_img read more

It will be a difficult game and we will do our best to win,” he said to the UEFA official website.“I hope we can beat them and match or even surpass the success we had last year.”“We want to reach the quarter-finals; we showed that we could do this last year by reaching the semi-finals and knocking out Barcelona.

I was extremely nervous. One of my biggest dreams was to play in one of Europe’s biggest teams and I was able to turn this into reality by signing for Roma.”“When I first arrived, the team were on tour in the United States and I stayed in Rome because I didn’t have a visa,” he explained.“I was going to have my first training session and [sporting director] Monchi asked me to come into the changing room.”“When I arrived, Francesco Totti was there, and I felt very nervous.

Five 0Day iOS Vulnerability Chains Have Been Exploited for Years

first_imgLet’s also keep in mind that this was a failure case for the attacker: for this one campaign that we’ve seen, there are almost certainly others that are yet to be seen. A collection of fourteen vulnerabilities affecting almost every iOS versions from iOS 10 to iOS 12 enabled a number of hacked websites to gain control of their visitors devices and steal a wealth of private data aver at least two years, Google Threat Analysis Group (TAG) engineer Ian Beer wrote. These vulnerabilities are not new. What is new is the discovery of their active exploit in the wild for at least two years.UPDATE (9/9/2019): After this article went online, Apple released an officlal statement concerning the exploits affecting its devices in the wild, According to Apple, the idea that those were broadly targeted exploits “en masse” is misleading, since no more that a dozen websites were hacked. Furthermore, those websites all focused on content related to the Uighur community, so Apple also rejected the idea that the community of iPhone users might have been subject to the attack at large. Another statement from Google’s in-depth analysis Apple took issue with concerns the alleged duration of those attacks. While confirming to have patched all involved vulnerabilities promptly, as InfoQ correctly highlighted in its first reporting, Apple shrinks the duration of the attacks from a period of two years, as Google implied, down to “roughly two months”. On a related note, it also became known that Android and Microsoft Windows users were also targeted through the same websites used to attack iPhone users. This also hints at a broad effort that went well beyond hacking iPhone users only.Seven of the vulnerabilities affected the iOS browser, five were kernel vulnerabilities, and two were sandbox escapes. Collectively they were used to create five exploit chains each leading from initially hacking into a device, typically exploiting a browser vulnerability, to getting access to private data by escalating the attack to higher privilege levels. According to Beer, most of those vulnerabilities were caused by poor QA or blatant errors that should have never made it into shippable software. For example, one kernel vulnerability was associated to a heap overflow in a C++ method in the embedded GPU driver. The method parsed user-provided data without doing the required bound-checking.Another kernel vulnerability was caused by a code refactoring the replaced a < bound check with !=, whereby the value being checked against was read directly from an IPC message. A similar case of unfiltered usage of user-provided data was the culprit of a different kernel vulnerability in a IOKit public method that performed a memmove with a user-provided length argument. Another really hard-to-justify vulnerability was linked to some "unfinished" code that Apple added in 2014 to implement a "vouchers" feature and that would have caused a kernel panic if called with expected arguments in any kind of test or attempt of use. According to Beer, many of those bugs should have been detected by unit testing, code review, or fuzzing.Beer, in his analysis of the exploits, went so far as to set up his own command and control server to investigate what kind of data attackers had access to after gaining unsandboxed code execution privilege as root. Specifically, he found out all major apps, including Whatsapp, Telegram, iMessage, Gmail, Contacts, and many others, all leaked unencrypted data, and attackers had access to almost all personal information available on the device. Beer notes that although Google identified a number of hacked websites that had been exploiting those vulnerability chains, that does not mean that they were the only ones doing it. Possibly the most important takeaway from this story is that no system can be considered safe, not even one as highly-regarded in this respect as the iPhone, and users should be aware of that. To make things worse, being targeted is not just a matter of being individually targeted, says Beer. Instead, attacks are often carried through against mass targets, where the simple fact of belonging to a target group, either on a geographic or ethnic base, is enough to provoke it.Ian Beer's series of articles provides extensive details, in which he digs ito the detail of all vulnerabilities and how they could be chained together to make the exploits possible. Real users make risk decisions based on the public perception of the security of these devices. The reality remains that security protections will never eliminate the risk of attack if you're being targeted.last_img read more

Global music sales up in 12

first_imgLOS ANGELES — When is 13 a lucky number? When it’s the number of years it’s taken for the music industry to post its first yearly increase in global recorded music sales, which is what happened in 2012, according to new figures from the International Federation for the Phonographic Industry.The group’s annual Digital Music Report, issued Feb. 26 in London, noted that overall music sales rose from $16.2 billion to $16.5 billion, or 0.3 percent, from 2011 to 2012, the first time in 13 years that worldwide sales didn’t decline.IFPI Chief Executive Frances Moore said that indicates the long-suffering music business is “well on the road to recovery.” The increase, fractional as it is, reflects a greater availability of digital music services around the world, according to the IFPI report.Digital sales were up 9 percent in 2012 — from $5.2 billion to $5.6 billion — thanks to proliferation of such services in 100 markets last year, compared with only 23 markets a year earlier. Music subscription services also helped, growing 44 percent last year and now claiming 20 million subscribers around the world.Digital makes up more than half of recorded music sales in the U.S., Norway and Sweden, but for the rest of the world, physical CDs and other formats are still the dominant way people purchase and listen to music, the report said.last_img read more

Weather Eye Autumnal days not yet driven from years stage

first_imgBe still. Listen to the wind. The sun shines bright. Barren branches grace the sky. The chill is here. The season welcomes you into Nature’s world. Delicate ice crystals flee the rising sun, gathering in the shadows. Be still. Listen to the wind. It talks to you. Now, just nod and smile.Clear skies and sunshine graced our landscape Saturday and will repeat once again today. Brisk east winds, fresh from snow-covered lands, ushered in yet another round of winter’s chill. Autumn sits back in a vexed mood while Winter storms onto the stage.“You are a bit early, are you not?” asks Autumn. Winter ignores Autumn’s soft tone and takes a deep breath, ready to expel another cold gust of wind. “Do you not hear my request of reprieve? We are not ready for your chill. Your time will come but mine must continue for a short while. I am not finished with my task. Your presence has so quickly discolored my season — too early, it seems. Can I not have more days?”Winter steps back and stares at Autumn. “I suppose we can make a compromise. Perhaps we can share the realm of time. Am I all of what it seems? Is there not beauty and solace in my offerings? Perhaps I was a bit hasty to enter the land. I will grant you a reprieve for just a short while. But remember, I will be close by. Finish your cheer. Moisten the air and leave your puddles upon the ground. And then after that, I will return.”Autumn smiled. “Thank you, my dear friend. As you leave, I will reign once again a few days hence. I will bring back the clouds and rain, and offer a south and west wind to temper your chill.”last_img read more
