England allrounder Moeen Ali has signed for Cape Town Blitz in this year’s Mzansi Super League. He joins as cover for Wahab Riaz and will be available for the first two games of the competition.

Moeen missed out on a Test central contract with England for 2019-20, after opting to take a break from the longest format, and has been rested for the T20I series in New Zealand. “I feel like I want to enjoy my batting and this will give me a bit of a break,” he told ESPNcricinfo last month.

Moeen was part of England’s World Cup-winning squad in the summer and will likely be involved in the white-ball legs of the tour of South Africa after Christmas. After being dropped from the Test squad during the Ashes, he rediscovered his form while leading Worcestershire to within one ball of defending their Vitality Blast title in September.

He has also had two seasons with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, and his signing was hailed by Cape Town Blitz head coach Ashwell Prince.

“Moeen brings huge international experience to the team and in county cricket, he won the T20 Blast in 2018 with Worcestershire Rapids and he led them to the 2019 final, so we’re looking forward to having him in Cape Town,” Prince said.

Moeen said: “I’m very excited to be part of the MSL and joining Cape Town Blitz for the start of the tournament. I’m looking forward to playing with and against some world-class players.”

Wahab, the left-arm seamer, was signed in last month’s MSL draft but is currently involved in Pakistan’s T20I squad in Australia, with the third match of the series overlapping with Cape Town’s opening fixture. He is expected to be available from November 14, when Blitz play their first home game.

Shops shuttered, streets deserted as Kashmir loses special status and is divided

SRINAGAR, India (Reuters) – Shops and offices were shut in Indian Kashmir on Thursday and the streets largely deserted as federal authorities formally revoked the restive state’s constitutional autonomy and split it into two federal territories.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision in August to change Kashmir’s status and tighten its grip over a region has stoked anger and resentment while a three-decade armed revolt rages.

Pakistan, which claims the whole of Kashmir, has condemned the move. Its ally China, which is locked in a separate decades-old dispute with India over the part of Kashmir called Ladakh, also slammed India for unilaterally changing its status.

Just after midnight on Wednesday, the federal government’s orders went into effect, dividing up the old state of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories – one Jammu and Kashmir, and the other the Buddhist-dominated enclave of Ladakh.

Both will be directly ruled by Delhi, and new lieutenant governors were sworn in at a high-security governor’s premises later on Thursday.

“The unfulfilled dream of integrating Jammu and Kashmir has been accomplished,” said Home Minister Amit Shah, who is leading the political strategy to deal with Kashmir.

India is hoping that by opening up property rights in Kashmir to people from outside the region it can reignite economic growth, create jobs and turn the focus away from the militancy in which more than 40,000 people have died.

It blames Pakistan for keeping the revolt alive, allegations that the nuclear-armed neighbour denies. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Kashmir was a dispute left from history and it should be peacefully resolved.

“The Indian government officially announced the establishment of so called Jammu Kashmir territory and Ladakh Union territory which included some of China’s territory into its administrative jurisdiction,” Geng said at a news briefing.

“China deplores and firmly opposed that. India unilaterally changes its domestic law and administrative divisions, challenging China’s sovereignty and interests. This is awful and void, and this is not effective in any way and will not change the fact that the area is under China’s actual control.”

India and China fought a war in 1962 and since then have been unable to resolve their border dispute. Pakistan and India have fought two wars since independence in 1947 and engaged in an aerial clash over the territory.

KASHMIRIS LEFT IN LURCH

On Thursday, there was little traffic on the streets of Srinagar, the main city in Indian Kashmir, except for children going to school to complete hastily arranged exams. Many children have been kept out of school since the August clamp-down.

Shops were shut as a mark of opposition against Kashmir’s new status.

Authorities deployed additional paramilitary forces in parts of Srinagar where small protests have erupted in the past since the August 5 announcement of the change of status.

Still, there were 20 small incidents of stone-pelting reported from Srinagar and other parts of the Kashmir valley on Wednesday, a state police official said.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, one of scores of politicians in detention to prevent large protests from breaking out, said the federal government must engage with Kashmiris before they become even more alienated.

“GOI (government of India) has left Kashmiris in the lurch shown disregard for their rights. But if you consider them as your own, reach out engage with them before it’s too late,” she said in a Twitter post which is being handled by her daughter Iltija.

(The story corrects year of independence in paragraph 11).

The iOS Checkm8 jailbreak is hugely significant, but not for you

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on The iOS Checkm8 jailbreak is hugely significant, but not for you
Oct

There’s a new iPhone jailbreak – and it’s significant. “This is possibly the biggest news in iOS jailbreak community history in years,” security researcher Axi0mX declared on Twitter, as the hacker posted a GitHub link to an unpatchable iOS exploit called Checkm8. The code could enable hundreds of millions of iOS devices to be jailbroken.

As its name suggests, jailbreaking gives people the ability to break iOS devices and strip them of restrictions Apple has placed on them. It has been a warranty-voiding practice, completed by general users and techies alike for years, but it has become notoriously hard to do in recent iterations of iOS.

Back in August, Apple released an iOS 12.4 update which unpatched a jailbreak vulnerability which took advantage of the ‘SockPuppet’ flaw, and was swiftly patched by a red-faced Apple. While embarrassing, that mistake pales in comparison to the recent vulnerability of Checkm8.

“The most significant thing about Checkm8 is that it can’t be fixed with a software patch which is the way most vulnerabilities get fixed as it is in software, which is hard-coded on the device,” says Robin Wood, an independent security consultant.

With Checkm8, Apple has no way of patching the flaw. The Checkm8 software tool uses an exploit which targets a security hole in the Apple device’s ‘bootrom’, which is essentially the first bit of code that runs when an iOS device is turned on.

The flaw affects an eye-watering number of iOS devices, from devices with an A5 chip all the way to those with the A11 chip, meaning iOS devices such as undeniably ancient iPhone 4S all the way to the – still relatively new – iPhone X, could be impacted.

To put it simply, Apple is completely powerless to do anything about the exploit, short of recalling millions upon millions of affected devices. It’s one of the most significant exploits in recent years, potentially shaking the Apple ecosystem to its core. But does anyone really care about jailbreaking anymore?

“The main people who are likely to benefit from this are security researchers, who are using their own phone in controlled conditions. This process allows them to gain more control over the phone and so improves visibility into research on iOS or other apps on the phone,” Wood says. “For normal users, this is unlikely to have any effect, there are too many extra hurdles currently in place that they would have to get over to do anything significant.”

If a regular person with no prior knowledge of jailbreaking wanted to use this exploit to jailbreak their iPhone, they would find it extremely difficult, simply because Checkm8 just gives you access to the exploit, but not a jailbreak in itself. It’s also a ‘tethered exploit’, meaning that the jailbreak can only be triggered when connected to a computer via USB and will become untethered once the device restarts.

There’s also been significant changes since the heydays of iOS jailbreaking. In the early 2008 days of the iPhone, when there wasn’t quite and ‘app for everything,’ thousands of people flocked to alternative ways to break open their device. Cydia – an alternative App Store for downloading jailbroken apps, files, tweaks and themes – was the place to go.

Apple has since drastically improved its mobile operating system, giving some people the motivation, the customisation elements and app developers the API flexibility they needed to finally ditch the warranty-voiding process of jailbreaking. “No normal person wants to jailbreak,” says Lindsay Marshall, a professor at the University of Newcastle’s School of Computing. “The system used to be pretty restrictive on iPhones, and they’ve slowly expanded all the things you can do. The need to jailbreak is much less now than it ever used to be.”

Back in 2013, a massive 270,000 people downloaded the iOS 6 jailbreak in the first day of its release. That high number of first day downloads continued to decline year on year with every subsequent iOS release, in part thanks to the improvements on iOS. The first sign of danger for jailbreakers, however, came in 2017, when two of the biggest default app repositories – ModMy and ZodTTD/MacCiti – both announced that they would be archiving their repositories on Cydia.

Finally, in December last year, Cydia stopped allowing in-app purchases on its app store, which essentially sounded the death knell in the jailbreaking community. The initial creators of iPhone jailbreaks have said the practice is ”basically dead”.

“Certain users like to do more with iOS than what Apple allows. They like the hardware and software but find the restrictions too limiting,” says John Shier, a senior security analyst at Sophos. “Some do it purely for piracy reasons. What’s concerning is the fact that some users are willing to spend £1,000 on a phone but refuse to spend two quid on an app.”

And even then, piraters and others looking for specific apps they can’t find on the App Store are going to find jailbreaking even more irrelevant with the announcement of a new unofficial app store platform called AltStore, which gives users access to a Nintendo emulator.

Riley Testut, the developer of the AltStore released the project last week, saying that it’s “a home for apps that push the boundary of iOS”. More importantly, however, is that the AltStore doesn’t require a jailbreak to be downloaded, instead relying on an installation of the companion AltServer application on your Mac or PC.

Even if Checkm8 is the biggest exploit in iOS history, the casual iPhone user is probably less inclined to jailbreak their device now than they have ever been before. And when you consider the countless security and privacy risks associated with jailbreaking your iPhone, it’s probably for the best. The practice has been in decline for many years now, and with iOS becoming increasingly robust, along with developers finding other ways to host unapproved apps, jailbreaking may well and truly be dead.

George Munsey’s bread-and-butter shot continues causing chaos in Dubai

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on George Munsey’s bread-and-butter shot continues causing chaos in Dubai
Oct
30

The premise of scoring runs in cricket is simple: hit the ball where the fielders are not placed. When there is nobody behind square on the off-side boundary to a spin bowler, the reverse sweep is not just a high-octane, highly unorthodox shot but also a very high-percentage one.

It can hardly even be called a gamble anymore for George Munsey. It is the foundation of the left-hand batsman’s strokeplay – he won’t hesitate to play it from the very first ball of the match – and it’s one which few teams have found an answer for in the T20 World Cup Qualifier. UAE’s bowlers were the latest to be reverse swept away on Wednesday afternoon as Munsey used the stroke to eliminate the hosts out of the T20 World Cup Qualifier and punch Scotland’s fourth trip to the event.

“George is obviously a very talented player,” Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer said of Munsey’s Man-of-the-Match performance in the post-match press conference. “He can hit a golf ball a mile, he can hit a cricket ball a mile. He’s not very good at football, unfortunately. But he does have the ability to hit the balls 360 [degrees] on the cricket field. So he’ll use the reverse sweep when he needs to but he’s also capable of hitting the ball to the leg side if he needs to or back over the bowler’s head.

“He can probably understand that it’s a challenge for bowlers at times. George is in a great place at the moment with his cricket and he is playing extremely well. He’s going to go a very long way in his game. He keeps his head down and makes sure he gets his performances. We also have a number of guys who can play 360 [degrees] but George is the one who is at the top of the game at the moment.”

UAE captain Ahmed Raza said he was aware of the plan used in the previous match by Netherlands’ Pieter Seelaar to foil Munsey – putting a deep-backward point in place which resulted in his dismissal on the second ball of spin he faced, from Colin Ackermann. Raza opted to have his bowlers bowl a cramped line to Munsey’s body, not allowing him to free his arms for the shot rather than put in any funky fields to counter the equally funky shot.

“When someone’s hitting that [a reverse sweep] to a fast bowler who is bowling over 135 kph then you can be only in awe of that shot at that point.”

UAE captain Ahmed Raza on Munsey

It almost worked in the first over bowled by left-arm spinner Sultan Ahmed with several mis-hits and one ball clanging off Munsey’s grill. But by the third over, Munsey had found his timing by sending Sultan twice over the backward point boundary for six. Munsey showed he was equally adept at playing the shot against pace bowling too, audaciously reverse-sweeping Zahoor Khan over third man for six in the 13th over towards the tail end of his knock.

“We had set plans for that and we’ve played enough against him,” Raza said after the match. “A few of my team-mates have played with him in the GT20 as well so we had our plans. If you look at the first over he got one hit on the helmet, he got one inside-edged, he hit one over the keeper so he got lucky with that as well.

“The two boundaries he hit off Sultan in that [third] over, but he didn’t reverse sweep until the later stages. He hit one over third man but when someone’s hitting that to a fast bowler who is bowling over 135kph then you can be only in awe of that shot at that point.”

Coetzer also credited Munsey for the scoring options the reverse sweep opens up for him at the other end. With the confusion the shot causes in terms of field settings and trying to cover up gaps, it has made for a fruitful partnership at the top of the order, one which may cause further mayhem 12 months later in Australia.

“George has the ability to find the boundary, possibly easier than some others, during his innings,” Coetzer said of Munsey. “It certainly helps me. We’ve got a pretty good record as an opening pair. He’s got skills which I wish I could have and he helps me along. The partnerships we put on often helps us put the foundation, where George tends to be the main guy causing the destruction.”

‘Something novel’: Chinese cafe dyes pups to look like pandas

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on ‘Something novel’: Chinese cafe dyes pups to look like pandas
Oct

CHENGDU, China (Reuters) – Would you like your dog transformed into a panda?

It takes just 1,500 yuan ($212.28) at a pet café in southwest China that dyes pups in black and white streaks to resemble the animal that is considered a national treasure.

The cafe, which opened last month in the city of Chengdu in Sichuan province, has gone viral on social media after owner Lu Yunning dyed his six chow-chow puppies to look like pandas.

“There are many dog cafes, cat cafes, raccoon cafes, alpaca cafes and duck cafes,” said Lu, as the puppies, their limbs, ears and fur around the eyes dyed black, playfully chased a fish toy on a cord.

“We think they are not creative. We wanted something novel,” added the 21-year-old, who estimates his cafe draws 70 to 80 customers a day, nearly doubling since he posted social media pictures of his dyed dogs.

But until now customers have been more interested in taking pictures with Lu’s dogs than signing up for the dye service.

Lu said the imported dye he used did not harm the dogs, and was spread only on the upper part of their fur, rather than extending down to the base.

To round out the vacation experience, the Candy Planet Pet Cafe also offers washing and hotel services.

The attention drawn by the chow-chows has not all been positive, however, with animal rights group PETA urging people to keep away.

“Coating dogs with chemical dyes is stressful and can even cause allergic reactions on their skin, nose, and eyes,” Jason Baker, its Asia vice president, told Reuters.

“PETA urges travelers to stay away from any business that exploits animals for a money-grabbing gimmick,” he said in a statement.

Some online commentators have accused Lu of animal abuse.

“In a dog’s world, there is only you,” a user with the handle Biewenwochouliumang wrote on China’s Twitter-like Weibo. “Please be kind to them.”

Fake iOS jailbreak could be putting iPhone users at risk

Oct

A new vulnerability has been discovered which exists across legacy iOS hardware and while some have used it to jailbreak their devices, Cisco Talos recently discovered that cybercriminals have set up a fake website looking to capitalize on users trying to jailbreak their iPhones.

However, instead of actually jailbreaking a user’s device, the site just prompts users to download a malicious profile that the attackers then use to conduct click fraud.

Checkm8 is a bootrom vulnerability that impacts all legacy models of the iPhone from the 4S through the X. The campaign discovered by Cisco Talos tries to capitalize off of a project called checkrain which uses the checkm8 vulnerability to modify an iPhone’s bootrom and load a jailbroken image onto the device.

The Checkm8 vulnerability can be exploited using an open source tool called “ipwndfu” developed by AxiomX but the attackers being tracked by Cisco Talos run a malicious website called checkrain.com that preys on users searching for the legitimate checkrain project.

Checkrain

The fake checkrain site tries to appear to be legitimate by claiming to work with popular jailbreaking researchers such as “CoolStar” and Google Project Zero’s Ian Beer. The page prompts users to download an application to jailbreak their phone but there actually is no application, as the attackers are trying to install a malicious profile onto the end-user device.

When a user first visits the fake website, they are presented with a download button. Cisco Talos noticed several things about the site, including the mention of A13 devices which aren’t vulnerable to Checkm8, which indicate that the website is not legitimate.

Additionally, the website says that users can install the checkrain jailbreak without using a PC but in reality, the Checkm8 exploit requires that the iOS device be in DFU mode and is exploitable using an Apple USB cable. Another tip off was the fact that the fake checkrain site uses an SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt while the actual site doesn’t even have an SSL certificate.

Once the download button is clicked, an app with a checkrain icon is downloaded an installed onto a user’s iPhone. However, while the icon may appear like a regular app, it is actually a bookmark to connect to a URL.

Instead of providing users with an authentic jailbreak, the threat actors behind this campaign are instead using their devices to commit click fraud

As tempting as a jailbroken device may seem, by trying to exploit the Checkm8 vulnerability, you could be opening your device and your data to hackers.

Mominul Haque named captain for Tests, Mustafizur Rahman returns

Amid the turbulence of the player strike and Shakib Al Hasan‘s ban, BCB has announced their revised squads for the T20I and Test series in India in November. The big changes are at the top – Mominul Haque is Bangladesh’s captain for the Tests and Mahmudullah takes over as captain in T20Is.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam replaced Shakib in the T20I squad, while Abu Hider replaced allrounder Mohammad Saifuddin, who was ruled out last week due to a recurring back injury. Mohammed Mithun has also been drafted in for Tamim Iqbal, who was previously replaced by Imrul Kayes after opting out to stay home with his wife for the birth of their second child. Kayes has, however, been named in the Test squad. He currently leads the run-scoring charts in the National Cricket League (NCL).

New Test captain Mominul will also have left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman available to pick, as the seamer came in for Taskin Ahmed. Mustafizur last played a Test in March 2019, on Bangladesh’s curtailed tour of New Zealand. Fellow seamer Al-Amin Hossain also returned to the squad after last playing a Test in October 2014. His last Bangladesh appearance was in March 2016.

Twenty-year-old top-order batsman Saif Hassan has broken into a senior squad for the first time on the back of a strong showing in the NCL and on an ‘A’ tour of Sri Lanka. Hassan has made two hundreds and a fifty in his last four innings in October – a List A hundred against Sri Lanka, and innings of 220* and 72 for Dhaka Division. He averages 46.18 in 36 first-class matches since his debut in 2015.

T20I squad: Mahmudullah (capt), Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam, Arafat Sunny, Al-Amin Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Taijul Islam, Abu Hider

Test squad: Shadman Islam, Imrul Kayes, Saif Hassan, Mominul Haque (capt), Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Mohammad Mithun, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Taijul Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain, Abu Jayed, Ebadat Hossain

EU lawmakers visit Kashmir amid stone pelting and empty streets

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on EU lawmakers visit Kashmir amid stone pelting and empty streets
Oct
29

SRINAGAR, India (Reuters) – European Union lawmakers arrived in Srinagar on Tuesday, the first foreign delegation to visit Indian Kashmir’s main city since New Delhi revoked the region’s autonomy in August.

Hours before their arrival, small protests erupted in at least 40 locations around the city, prompting security forces to fire tear gas, a police official and Reuters witnesses said, despite heavy troop deployment.

Many streets remained strewn with stones, shops were closed and roadside vendors absent as the delegation of around 20 EU lawmakers arrived in the city shortly after noon.

Indian officials say the situation in Kashmir is returning to normal and hope that the EU delegation’s visit will help counter international condemnation of the government’s handling of the situation.

But opposition parties are angry that European lawmakers are being allowed to visit a region from which most Indian politicians have been barred since Aug. 5, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government revoked Kashmir’s special status and imposed a harsh crackdown to stifle dissent.

“MPs (members of parliament) from Europe are welcome to go on a guided tour of Jammu and Kashmir while Indian MPs are banned and denied entry,” Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet. “There is something very wrong with that.”

Indian security officials turned back several opposition politicians from Srinagar airport over the last several weeks saying the situation was not stable enough for such visits.

The EU delegation – some of them from far-right parties – was driven in a cavalcade of black SUVs, accompanied by armed troops and security jeeps, to a military cantonment in Srinagar. This was to be followed by meetings with civil society members, businessmen, two government officials told Reuters.

On Monday Modi received the delegation and said their visit would give them a clear view of the development priorities of the region, the prime minister’s office said.

Developer shows a jailbroken iPhone X on iOS 13.1.1 achieved by a new exploit

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Developer shows a jailbroken iPhone X on iOS 13.1.1 achieved by a new exploit
Oct
29

Developer and hacker Axi0mX recently shared a new exploit called “checkm8” that offers the possibility to jailbreak almost every Apple A-series CPU up to A11 Bionic chip. Today, the developer has posted a video that shows an iPhone X (which runs on A11 chip) booting up in verbose mode — something that is only possible with more profound modifications to the core of the system.

If you’re not used to jailbreaking, it generally refers to the removal of iOS software restrictions on Apple devices to install apps outside the App Store and even modify the entire system.

According to his description of the process, it took only two seconds to jailbreak the device using this new exploit. Interestingly, the iPhone is running iOS 13.1.1, which is the latest version of Apple’s operating system that was released last week for all users. For now, they’re using a semi-tethered method, which requires a computer to reload system modifications at every reboot. Untethered jailbreaks are most desired as they can boot without a computer like normal iPhones.

However, the most important thing to notice about “checkm8” is the fact that Axi0mX calls it “unpatchable” since it’s based on a hardware exploit. That means Apple can’t simply patch it with a software update. For users, that makes this jailbreak a reality for those devices, even if they’re running the latest version of iOS.

There is still a way ahead for developers to create a functional jailbreak tool that quickly injects this code with applications like Cydia on a device, but it’s a real start, and it looks like it won’t be long before someone achieves it.

Would you be interested in a new jailbreak tool? Let us know down in the comments.

Conditions in Australia ‘totally different’ to the rest of the world – Misbah-ul

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Conditions in Australia ‘totally different’ to the rest of the world – Misbah-ul
Oct
28

Pakistan head coach Misbah ul Haq spoke of the unique challenge of playing in Australia, and the difficulty of adjusting to conditions and the pitches, particularly for batsmen. The recently appointed coach, for whom the upcoming tour is just the second since being given the job, also termed it a big opportunity for his young side, while acknowledging Pakistan needed to become more consistent in their performances.

“The conditions are totally different than when you play in all other parts of the world,” Misbah told reporters in Sydney. “So you need to adjust to that pace and bounce especially in the batting unit and obviously when you’re bowling, because in Asian conditions your biggest strength is your spinners. You have to bowl slightly differently here, the lengths are different, even the lines are different for the pacers here. So these are the challenges we are looking at ahead of this series. We want to address those and the kind of talent we have, if we can be disciplined in all departments, I think we can produce good results.”

Misbah was appointed coach to relatively unanimous approval after the PCB decided to part ways with Mickey Arthur and his staff. A home series against a depleted Sri Lanka side represented an ostensibly soft start to his reign, but Pakistan found themselves overturned comprehensively in the T20I series, losing all three games comfortably, leading to the departure of Sarfaraz Ahmed as captain, with Azhar Ali succeeding him in Test cricket and Babar Azam in T20 internationals.

Misbah admitted an Australia tour would be a challenge for the captains, but believed they were good enough players to manage. “Sometimes it’s a challenge for the captains. Azhar has already captained in Australia. He’s a bit experienced, he knows, and he’s played a lot of Test cricket. Babar is new, and so it will be really important for me to pass on advice. The team also needs to support him and execute plans.

“Some of the bowlers who have experience can help him too. Imad Wasim is there, Wahab Riaz is there, Mohammad Irfan… they can really help him, setting the fields, having their bowling plans executed properly. Obviously it’s a new thing, new experience for him but I think all these challenges will help him get stronger and be bigger in stature.”

In a squad already replete with surprises, Usman Qadir‘s selection raised eyebrows, particularly in Australia. Until recently, it was believed the legspinner had ambitions to play international cricket for them. He’d even said so himself. Misbah spoke about the process that led to the 26-year old being picked for Pakistan.

“The last couple of years now, we’ve just been playing Shadab Khan, who’s been slightly out of form. There are very few legspin options in Pakistan. A few of the youngsters have come up just in this season, and Usman Qadir is one of them. He played the T20 tournament there and he bowled well. We picked Usman because he has experience playing in Australia, knows the conditions and with his height, especially, gets little bit more bounce also. I thimk his variations, the flipper and the googly for example, gave him a bit of an advantage. That was the reason behind his selection. We need to develop someone in that department, so that we have a back-up for Shadab, especially before the World Cup.”

The youngest players Pakistan have selected have come in the form of fast bowlers. Sixteen-year old Naseem Shah, 18-year old Muhammad Musa and the more experienced 19-year old Shaheen Afridi are all part of the Test squad, the first two almost completely unknown outside of Pakistan, which Misbah thought might give his side an advantage. He singled out Naseem for high praise.

“He’s bowling well. Especially in the four-day competition that’s going on, first-class, he’s bowling well. The good thing about him is he’s bowling well in all spells. He’s now playing his fourth first class game of the [Quaid-e-Azam trophy] back home, and in all spells he’s bowling quick. His control with the ball is also good. I’m looking forward to him bowling here in Australia where the conditions will also give him some assistance in getting pace and bounce. Everybody is excited to get him in the team.

“There is always the surprise that plays a part in selection but again you need to bowl well in Australian conditions. Only pace is not going to favour you. The good thing with him is he can bowl in good areas also. At Under-19 levels he bowled really well with the new ball and the old ball and he’s doing that in first-class cricket, too. Looking forward, if he can just put the ball in the right areas at that pace, it could be a surprise package.”

There was still time for Misbah’s characteristically bone-dry wit to emerge, too. “Of course the unpredictability could be frightening for Australia. But it could be for us, too.”

EU likely to agree Brexit delay as PM Johnson seeks an election

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Union is likely to agree a 3-month flexible Brexit delay on Monday as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson pushes for an election after he was forced by his opponents to request an extension he had pledged he would never ask for.

Just three days before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU on Oct. 31 at 2300 GMT, Brexit is hanging in the balance as British politicians are no closer to reaching a consensus on how, when or even if the divorce should take place.

Johnson, who won the top job by pledging – “do or die” – to deliver Brexit on Oct. 31, was forced by opponents to request a delay after he was defeated in parliament over the sequencing of the ratification of his divorce deal.

The 27 European Union countries that will remain after Brexit hope to agree on Monday to delay Britain’s divorce until Jan. 31 with an earlier departure possible should the factious UK parliament ratify their separation deal, sources said.

Diplomatic sources told Reuters the bloc’s 27 EU ambassadors would meet at 0900 GMT on Monday in Brussels to agree on the three-month delay from the current Brexit date of Oct. 31.

“There will most likely be an agreement on Monday morning between the 27 on extension until January 31,” said a source close to French President Emmanuel Macron. “The prospect of elections has strengthened significantly over the weekend.”

Brexit has already been delayed twice – from March 29 and April 12 – after Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, failed to get her deal through the British parliament.

The source close to Macron stressed that the third Brexit delay would come with conditions, including a refusal to renegotiate the divorce agreement and giving a green light to other EU countries to meet without Britain to discuss the bloc’s future.

With the British political system still deadlocked over Brexit, Johnson is demanding parliament approve an election on Dec. 12 in return for having more time to approve his deal.

But he needs the support of two-thirds of parliament’s 650 lawmakers for a new election. A vote is due in parliament later on Monday.

The latest delay plan envisages that Britain could be out on Dec. 1 or Jan. 1 should parliament ratify the agreement in November or December, respectively, according to diplomats who deal with Brexit in Brussels.

The EU will state that the extension, the third granted so Britain can sort out its departure, will not be used to renegotiate the divorce treaty again and that London should not impede other essential work by the EU on projects from budgets to climate policies.

Fake iOS jailbreak could be putting iPhone users at risk

A new vulnerability has been discovered which exists across legacy iOS hardware and while some have used it to jailbreak their devices, Cisco Talos recently discovered that cybercriminals have set up a fake website looking to capitalize on users trying to jailbreak their iPhones.

However, instead of actually jailbreaking a user’s device, the site just prompts users to download a malicious profile that the attackers then use to conduct click fraud.

Checkm8 is a bootrom vulnerability that impacts all legacy models of the iPhone from the 4S through the X. The campaign discovered by Cisco Talos tries to capitalize off of a project called checkrain which uses the checkm8 vulnerability to modify an iPhone’s bootrom and load a jailbroken image onto the device.

The Checkm8 vulnerability can be exploited using an open source tool called “ipwndfu” developed by AxiomX but the attackers being tracked by Cisco Talos run a malicious website called checkrain.com that preys on users searching for the legitimate checkrain project.

Checkrain

The fake checkrain site tries to appear to be legitimate by claiming to work with popular jailbreaking researchers such as “CoolStar” and Google Project Zero’s Ian Beer. The page prompts users to download an application to jailbreak their phone but there actually is no application, as the attackers are trying to install a malicious profile onto the end-user device.

When a user first visits the fake website, they are presented with a download button. Cisco Talos noticed several things about the site, including the mention of A13 devices which aren’t vulnerable to Checkm8, which indicate that the website is not legitimate.

Additionally, the website says that users can install the checkrain jailbreak without using a PC but in reality, the Checkm8 exploit requires that the iOS device be in DFU mode and is exploitable using an Apple USB cable. Another tip off was the fact that the fake checkrain site uses an SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt while the actual site doesn’t even have an SSL certificate.

Once the download button is clicked, an app with a checkrain icon is downloaded an installed onto a user’s iPhone. However, while the icon may appear like a regular app, it is actually a bookmark to connect to a URL.

Instead of providing users with an authentic jailbreak, the threat actors behind this campaign are instead using their devices to commit click fraud

As tempting as a jailbroken device may seem, by trying to exploit the Checkm8 vulnerability, you could be opening your device and your data to hackers.
