An anonymous reader writes "Hackers can influence real-time traffic-flow-analysis systems to make people drive into traffic jams or to keep roads clear in areas where a lot of people use Google or Waze navigation systems, a German researcher demonstrated at BlackHat Europe. 'If, for example, an attacker drives a route and collects the data packets sent to Google, the hacker can replay them later with a modified cookie, platform key and time stamps, Jeske explained in his research paper (PDF). The attack can be intensified by sending several delayed transmissions with different cookies and platform keys, simulating multiple cars, Jeske added. An attacker does not have to drive a route to manipulate data, because Google also accepts data from phones without information from surrounding access points, thus enabling an attacker to influence traffic data worldwide, he added.' 'You don't need special equipment for this and you can manipulate traffic data worldwide,' Jeske said."

TEDxSalford - Paul Zenon - Security vs Reason

Paul Zenon is Britain's leading magician -- and funny with it. He has performed in around thirty countries in every conceivable location. He has literally hundreds of television appearances to his name including three top-rating hour-long one-man specials on Channel 4 and one on ITV. Paul has appeared in venues ranging from the Mirage, Luxor, Orleans and Tropicana Casinos, Las Vegas, to an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic, and a London Palladium Royal Variety Show to the back of a truck in a Bosnian war zone. Paul Zenon appears regularly in the media as an authority with regard to all things weird and wonderful, including the history of Variety and magic (with Houdini as a speciality), the paranormal (as a sceptic) and con-men, scams and hustles. Paul is a long-term favourite on the international comedy club and corporate circuits and in recent years has had recent sell-out appearances at festivals in Edinburgh, London, Brighton, Auckland, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne, both with his own shows and as a regular in the Olivier Award-winning La Clique.
