Andrew Ingleton, a senior executive at Cricket Australia (CA), will make the short stroll down Jolimont Street to become the new chief executive of Cricket Victoria (CV), replacing Tony Dodemaide, after the former Test bowler spent a decade in the role.

Dodemaide announced his resignation at the start of August, following a difficult period of infighting among Victorian Premier clubs over mooted changes to the state association’s constitution, with his own club Footscray among Cricket Victoria’s most vocal opponents.

Ingleton, meanwhile, has been CA’s executive general manager of game and market development for five years, and will arrive at CV well-placed to oversee the state’s drive to build its playing talent base in sharp competition with Australian rules football, while also managing the move to the long-awaited AU $40 million cricket centre at St Kilda’s Junction Oval.

“After a thorough and extensive process, we are delighted to have secured Andrew as the organisation’s next CEO. He brings a wealth of consumer and commercial expertise to our business,” CV’s chairman Russell Thomas said of Ingleton, who before CA had worked as an executive with Dulux and also for Orica Mining in Latin America.

“In addition to being a proven business leader in both the sporting and commercial sectors, Andrew has an excellent strategic understanding of the challenges ahead of us from his time with Cricket Australia. We are confident Andrew is the right person to lead us through the next phase of our strategic plan and our settling into the Victorian Cricket and Community Centre in St Kilda.”

Ahead of his commencement in March 2018, Ingleton said that building bridges with the wider Victorian cricket community would be a key part of his job. “This is a tremendous opportunity at a key point in Cricket Victoria’s history,” he said. “I look forward to building relationships with our local community at our exciting new headquarters and with the broader Victorian cricket community in general.

“Cricket Victoria has a crucial role to play at every level of our game – from building our grassroots facilities, clubs and participation through to successful Big Bash franchises and producing more Australian cricketers. I’m looking forward to working with the dedicated Cricket Victoria team to deliver on our objectives in the years ahead.”

The move to CV means Ingleton joins individuals like Mike McKenna and Kate Banozic in recent departures from CA’s executive team.

India’s November retail inflation breaches RBI’s 4 percent target

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s retail inflation in November breached the Reserve Bank of India’s medium-term target of 4 percent, which could put pressure on it to raise policy rates in 2018.

Annual inflation of 4.88 percent last month was the steepest level in 15 months, government data showed on Tuesday, up from 3.58 percent in October.

Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast November’s CPI inflation to rise to 4.20 percent.

Last week, the RBI held rates unchanged, despite having faced some pressure to cut rates to aid growth. The central bank’s increased concern about inflation has prompted it to hold rates since a trim in August.

India’s inflation outlook has deteriorated in recent months, driven by rises in the prices of food and fuel products. The RBI has raised its inflation projection to between 4.3 percent and 4.7 percent for the six months ending in March 2018.

The central bank took advantage of an extraordinary period of low inflation, including a slump in food and energy prices, to cut rates by a total of 200 basis points from January 2015 until August this year, when it last cut the repo rate by 25 basis points.

The RBI will hold its next policy review in February.

Analysts said inflation was likely to remain above 4 percent in 2018, dashing hopes for any rate cut.

“The scope for any rate cut this fiscal (year) is completely ruled out,” said Sunil Sinha, an economist at India Ratings.

“I do not see much of change in RBI’s stance in the next six months.”

With a surge in prices of fruit and vegetables, annual retail food inflation climbed to 4.42 percent in November from 1.90 percent the previous month, while fuel inflation quickened to 7.92 percent from 6.36 percent, driven by rising global prices of crude oil.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who will present his last annual budget in February, ahead of general elections in 2019, is worried that rising inflation could end the current rate-cut cycle, officials have said.

In Asia, China’s annual consumer inflation slowed to 1.7 percent in November and in South Korea to 1.3 percent, the lowest in 11 months.

Separately, India’s annual industrial output grew a lower-than-expected 2.2 percent in October, data released on Tuesday showed, falling short of a forecast of 3.0 percent in a Reuters poll of economists.

India’s economic growth rebounded in the three months ended in September, halting a five-quarter slide.

After days of intense speculation, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma tied the knot on Monday in a private ceremony in Tuscany, Italy. The intimate ceremony had their close friends and relatives in attendance.

The power couple finally announced the happy news on their respective Twitter handles by sharing a few pictures from their fairytale wedding ceremony. Reportedly, the inside pictures from the ceremony, as well as those from the pre-wedding rituals, have been sold to a magazine and the proceeds from the sale will go to charity.

The lovely couple hosted a mehendi and sangeet ceremony apart from their engagement and the wedding ceremony.

Both Anushka and Virat, on their wedding day, were seen clad in outfits designed by ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Anushka looked ethereal in a pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. And Virat looked suave in an ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern and signature house buttons with an old rose silk kota safa.

Google’s Project Zero iOS bug hunter Ian Beer has released details about an iOS 11 exploit that could offer up a jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2.

Beer last week teased that he had an exploit called ‘tfp0’, which is short for the kernel task port in iOS, and has today followed with an exploit using two recently patched flaws that may offer the rare prospect of a possible jailbreak on iOS.

It appears what he has released isn’t a full jailbreak but enough to allow security researchers to bypass software restrictions imposed by Apple and test a newish version of iOS. It may also help create a jailbreak for those interested in testing iOS 11.1.2 or below.

Beer published details of an ‘async_wake’ exploit and proof-of-concept local kernel debugging tool for iOS 11.1.2 on Monday. Apple released iOS 11.2 on December 2, so the tools won’t work on updated iPhones.

As detailed in Project Zero’s bug repository, the issue Beer found relates to a memory flaw in IOSurface, a kernel extension.

ios-11-1-2-iphone-x.jpg

The Project Zero exploit uses an IOSurface bug, another kernel bug patched in iOS 11.2, and specially crafted kernel messages.

Jailbreaking researchers Team Pangu claim to have discovered the same flaw last year and have been using it for jailbreaking an iPhone during internal research.

Beer’s release of his exploit came after Team Pangu revealed a proof of concept exploit for one of the iOSurface vulnerabilities he’d reported to Apple.

Team Pangu researcher Wang Tielei described iOS 11.2 as a “big loss” as it blocked a kernel vulnerability that could be exploited from within an iOS app sandbox.

Beer’s exploit uses a combination of the IOSurface bug, another kernel bug patched in iOS 11.2, and specially crafted kernel messages to get the prized tfp0 on Apple devices.

Beer confirmed his technique does work on iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and iPod Touch 6G if they’re running iOS 11.1.2. He notes that it should be simple to port to other models. He also tested it on a MacBookAir 5,2 running MacOS 10.13.

Williamson credits fast bowlers for series win

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Williamson credits fast bowlers for series win
Dec

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson credited his bowlers for the 2-0 series win against West Indies on what he described as pitches where wickets were hard to come by. Left-arm fast bowlers Neil Wagner and Trent Boult led the hosts’ bowling efforts during the series, using predominantly short-pitched bowling to pick up a combined 24 of the 38 wickets that West Indies lost to bowlers over the course of two Tests.

‘They all bring a variety of styles so they all do a different type of job and I think they were outstanding in the second innings of both Tests. Wickets were fairly tough to come by. Both times the surfaces slowed down a little bit. Here, the bounce became a little variable, which is great late in a Test match. You expect the surface to age a little bit and the way they were able to pick up the wickets was outstanding.’

The fast bowlers had also chipped in with crucial runs during the second Test, with Tim Southee stitching a half-century stand with Boult for the last wicket in the first innings, and holding one end up as Ross Taylor got to his 17th Test hundred at the other end.

“[Ross] is such a fine player. It was great that he could achieve such a fantastic thing for himself and for the team as well. To get the team to such a good position in the second innings, you know, a 150 lead, is a nice place to be,” Williamson said.

“Lower-order runs are so valuable. Throughout the series our lower order have contributed nicely. That was a big partnership for us, especially after getting put in. To get that extra 50 to 370 [373] was a good effort. “

This was New Zealand’s seventh series win at home in their last nine since 2013, with their only losses coming against South Africa and Australia. In between, they won a Test match in England, who will be their next opponents.

“I think the highlight would probably be how we adapted and stuck to our plans and executed those plans.We knew coming against this West Indies side, how talented they are. Winning away in England was a great effort and we aere expecting a tough challenge.

“We want to be winning as much as we can. But we know we have two Test matches [against England] coming up in the summer, so we’ll have to be very good again.”

Rahul Gandhi takes helm of Congress party to challenge Modi

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Rahul Gandhi takes helm of Congress party to challenge Modi
Dec

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s main opposition Congress party on Monday elevated Rahul Gandhi, the scion of the country’s most fabled political dynasty, as its president, preparing to challenge the dominance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of national polls in 2019.

In a long-awaited move, Gandhi, the great-grandson of India’s founding prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, was elected unopposed to head the party. He will take the reins from his mother Sonia, the party’s longest-serving president who was elected in 1998.

Calling it a “historic occasion”, the Congress party said Gandhi would take charge as president on Dec. 16.

Television broadcast images of party supporters celebrating and distributing sweets outside Congress offices in the capital, New Delhi, and the financial hub of Mumbai.

Gandhi’s ascent coincides with state polls in Modi’s western home state of Gujarat that are shaping as a test for the prime minister, who has been facing criticism for softening economic growth and poor implementation of a nationwide sales tax.

The Congress hopes a round of state elections offers the party, and Gandhi, a shot at revival ahead of the next national elections, due in 2019.

Modi’s depiction of Gandhi as an undeserving “prince” has helped sideline Gandhi since the last national election, during which time Congress has suffered some of its worst results in local elections.

The Nehru-Gandhi family has ruled the country for most of its 70 years since independence from Britain. Gandhi’s father and grandmother were both prime ministers, and both assassinated.

GANDHI VS MODI

Following Congress’ defeat in the 2014 polls, Gandhi struggled to convince voters, as well as many within his party, of his leadership skills. But senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said Gandhi was now ready for the next challenge.

“The entire country has lots of expectations from Rahul Gandhi,” Azad said. “Much before he was elected he has shown his mettle. He knows his responsibility.”

Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) swiftly dismissed Gandhi’s election, saying he had become president only on the basis of “dynastic principle”.

“The new India is loath to (accept) dynastic principle and the family character of the Congress further diminishes its appeal,” BJP spokesman G.V.L. Narasimha Rao told Reuters.

Gandhi, until now a vice-president of Congress, is widely seen as a prime ministerial candidate if the party returns to power one day.

The 47-year-old has increasingly gone public in slamming Modi’s governance since the last national polls, as he looks to shed the reticent image that has for years been synonymous with his political dynasty.

But he has also faced political backlash. In 2015, for example, he took nearly two months of leave, prompting Modi’s party to accuse him of “holidaying” while parliament was in session.

Modi still trumps Gandhi in popularity rankings, however.

Nearly nine of 10 Indians have a favourable opinion of him and more than two-thirds are satisfied with the direction in which he is taking the country, a Pew survey found in November.

Modi’s favourable rating was 30 points more than Gandhi‘s, it showed.

If You Miss Jailbreaking Your iPhone, It Looks Like Google Has a …

Apple’s iOS is a walled garden that gives the company total control over what can be done with its device. For years, jailbreaking your iPhone was easy and allowed all sorts of custom freedom. It’s been a while since a simple jailbreak has been released. But this week, a Google researcher made an announcement that has the dying jailbreak community ready to get crackin’.

If you’re unfamiliar with jailbreaking, it’s simply a method of exploiting an iOS vulnerability to take full control over what your iPhone can do. Basically, it gives iOS a lot of the freedom and customization that’s available on Android. Apple likes to maintain control over what can be done on iOS because it keeps things running smoothly, it keeps things secure, and there’s plenty of profit in having the power to decide what apps are okay.

When jailbreaking first hit the scene, it offered a way to customize Apple’s rigid interface, use apps that weren’t approved, pirate mobile software, install game emulators, and a lot more. The feature that was likely the most important, at first, was that it allowed people to use the iPhone with carriers that didn’t offer it. These days, that’s not much of an issue. Most of the problems that led people to jailbreak have been solved. And as iOS has become incredibly secure, jailbreaks have dried up, the jailbreak community has crumbled, repositories have closed, and it looked like it was the end of an era.

That is until Google researcher Ian Beer tweeted this out on Tuesday:

As Motherboard points out, this simple message meant a lot to the jailbreak community. Apple just patched iOS 11.1.2 last week, and what developers believe Beer is hinting at is that he’ll be releasing an exploit that could be used by others to create the first full publicly available jailbreak since iOS 10. From the report:

A couple caveats: Beer is probably not going to release a full, untethered jailbreak, meaning you will have to plug the phone into a computer to exploit it every time it boots up. But he is likely going to release the closest thing to a public jailbreak that anyone can find. iOS 11.1.2 is a nearly up-to-date operating system that was only updated last week.

Motherboard spoke to several security researchers who confirmed that they believe that Beer will likely be handing out the keys to the castle for jailbreaking iOS 11, the Reddit community is buzzing, and Jonathan Levine, a well-known expert on iOS, tweeted that he’ll be releasing a toolkit soon to help with the jailbreaking process.

Part of the reason that jailbreaking has become less common is that reporting vulnerabilities to a bug bounty program is big business for researchers. If you find something, you can make a lot of money by reporting it and letting Apple fix it. But Google doesn’t need that money. Beer does research on iOS for Google’s Project Zero, a program aimed at keeping the world more secure (and occasionally embarrassing rival companies). Project Zero locates exploits and gives companies 90 days to fix them before threatening to go public. If everything is what it seems in this case, Apple’s been given its time to fix it, and if you don’t update, you could be playing Nintendo ROMs and using custom skins in no time.

There a couple things to keep in mind. If you’re on an old version of iOS that’s jailbroken, updating to iOS 11.1.2 could put you at risk of losing jailbreak-ability if no tools end up coming out. Also, iOS being extremely secure is good for you. Even though iOS 11 has had a rocky launch, it’s still a great option for protecting yourself. The world is different than it was in 2007 when jailbreaking exploded. Hackers are better than ever. Jailbreak at your own risk.

Duckett ban fair game as Australia chase Ashes

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Duckett ban fair game as Australia chase Ashes

2:35 AM ET

Australia’s wicketkeeper Tim Paine expects Ben Duckett’s suspension to be raised as a way of distracting England on the field during the Perth Ashes Test, as he joined other members of the home side in denying their sledging of Jonny Bairstow crossed the line into inappropriate personal territory in the first match at the Gabba.

Paine, who also revealed the nature of his Adelaide exchange with England’s captain Joe Root, said the Australians had little time to think about England’s off-field troubles. However he did say that Duckett’s sanction – fined and banned from the remaining England Lions matches – for pouring a drink over the head of the vice-captain James Anderson after the team’s arrival in Perth last week, would likely be used against the tourists.

This would be consistent with the use of Bairstow’s head-to-head encounter with Cameron Bancroft to try to put the English gloveman off his game in Brisbane, and with Australia’s uncompromising approach to a series that invariably carries plenty of ramifications for failure. However Paine said he was surprised to read Bairstow’s comments in a newspaper column that if some words exchanged in Brisbane were ever repeated then he would take the matter up with higher authorities.

“I certainly haven’t heard anything that has crossed the line since I’ve been out there,” Paine said. “I don’t know – it might have been between overs or I was down the other end, I’m not too sure. I said it after the last Test as well, there has been nothing that I’ve heard that has been too untoward or anything that has been particularly nasty. It has just been tough Test match cricket.

“I’m sure someone will bring it [Duckett] up at some stage. But what’s happening in their camp off the field has no effect on the way we’re going to go about our cricket this week. The time we start worrying about them too much is the time when we’re not thinking about our own backyard enough. It hasn’t affected me going out to keep and it’s not going to affect the way our team plays.”

As for the confrontation with Root in England’s second innings, Paine said it had been a case of reminding each other what they were out there for, and what they were not. “There wasn’t too much to it. It was played up a bit,” he said. “He raised his bat to the umpire to let him know he hit the ball. I said just to let the umpire umpire and you bat, he said no worries, you wicket-keep. That was about it.

“I don’t think it has been as bad as it has been made out to be, it has been played in pretty good spirit from what I’ve seen and heard. So I’m sure that won’t change. But what I do know is both teams have – despite what it may look like – a huge amount of respect for each other. And I’m sure this week will be another tough week of Test cricket.”

In making vital first innings runs for the hosts, Paine had to cope with receiving a couple of blows on the finger that he broke repeatedly in past years, to the extent that he was almost forced into retirement. The prospect of another such blow has been a mental as well as physical hurdle for him, so he was understandably happy to come through not only with runs but also minimal new damage.

“I’ve been hit a few times over the last four or five years,” he said of the digit, which was operated on no fewer than seven times before finally settling down. “I was a bit lucky, it kind of missed the bad part of my finger, which was nice. But it’s pulled on really well, had a few days off and been home, so looking forward to this week.”

One thing Paine will not be changing is his desire to take on the short ball, after falling twice to the pull shot in Adelaide, first with a middled shot straight at deep square leg, and then a second innings top edge as Australia sought to extend their lead. A former team-mate and powerful exponent of the shot, Ricky Ponting, has been on hand to encourage Paine not to shelve the stroke. “I’ve always tried to take the short ball on and the pull shot has certainly been a strength of mine for the majority of my career, so I won’t change that,” he said. “I’ll just try and play it a little bit better.

“I did ask him [Ponting] about it and he just said ‘play it better’, which is pretty good advice. The one in the first innings I just hit a little bit better than I thought and the second innings I tried to hit it over the grandstand. I’ll certainly be doing some work on it, I’d be silly not to, but I’ll still look to take it on, just play it better.”

One of Paine’s earliest Sheffield Shield matches was at the WACA Ground, where he made a double-century – still his only first-class hundred – in a Tasmanian win. Judging it to be the hardest place in Australia to start an innings due to the extra bounce, Paine said he would be sad to see major matches moved to the new Perth stadium, now clearly visible from the WACA itself.

“I think all Australian players, domestically and internationally, have enjoyed coming to the WACA,” he said. “It’s a place that other international teams find really uncomfortable, which is again a bonus for us. It’s kind of sad that this will be it for the international game here, but a lot of Australian cricketers and Australian cricket fans will have a lot of great memories from WACA Tests from a long time ago. I’m sure they’ll live on.”

Palestinian stabs Israeli in Jerusalem; anti-Trump protest flares in Beirut

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Palestinian stabs Israeli in Jerusalem; anti-Trump protest flares in Beirut
Dec
11

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – A Palestinian stabbed an Israeli security guard at Jerusalem’s main bus station on Sunday, police said, and violence flared near the U.S. Embassy in Beirut over U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Four days of street protests in the Palestinian territories over Trump’s announcement on Wednesday have largely died down, but his overturning of long-standing U.S. policy on Jerusalem — a city holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians — drew more Arab warnings of potential damage to prospects for Middle East peace.

“Our hope is that everything is calming down and that we are returning to a path of normal life without riots and without violence,” Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Army Radio.

But in Jerusalem, a security guard was in critical condition after a 24-year-old Palestinian man from the occupied West Bank stabbed him after approaching a metal detector at an entrance to the city’s central bus station, police said. The alleged assailant was taken into custody after a passer-by tackled him.

In public remarks on Sunday, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, a frequent critic of Israel, called it an “invader state” and a “terror state”.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who spoke at a news conference in Paris alongside French President Emmanuel Macron after the two leaders met, fired back:

“I‘m not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villages in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, helps Iran go around international sanctions and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people,” Netanyahu said.

Macron told Netanyahu that he needed to make gestures to the Palestinians to break the impasse between the two sides.

“I asked Prime Minister Netanyuhu to make some courageous gestures towards the Palestinians to get out of the current impasse,” Macron said, suggesting that a freeze of construction in settlements could be a first step.

Most countries consider East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed after capturing it in a 1967 war, to be occupied territory and say the status of the city should be decided at future Israeli-Palestinian talks. Israel says that all of Jerusalem is its capital, while Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state.

The Trump administration has said it is still committed to reviving Palestinian-Israeli talks that collapsed in 2014, but jettisoning old policies is necessary to break the deadlock.

Washington says it has not taken a position on Jerusalem’s final status or borders, but it is sensible to recognise that any future peace deal will have Israel’s capital in the city.

The United States was “as committed to the peace process as we’ve ever been”, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday. Trump “didn’t talk about boundaries, he didn’t talk about borders… Because the final status of Jerusalem is between the Palestinians and the Israelis. It’s not for the Americans to decide.”

Netanyahu reacted to critics in a statement before talks with Macron, to be followed by a meeting with European foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday.

“I hear (from Europe) voices of condemnation over President Trump’s historic announcement, but I have not heard any condemnation for the rocket firing against Israel that has come (after the announcement) and the awful incitement against us,” Netanyahu said.

DEMONSTRATIONS

In Beirut, Lebanese security forces fired tear gas and water cannons at protesters, some of them waving Palestinian flags, near the U.S. Embassy.

Demonstrators set fires in the street, torched U.S. and Israeli flags and threw projectiles towards security forces that had barricaded the main road to the complex.

In the Moroccan capital, Rabat, tens of thousands of protesters marched down the city’s main thoroughfare chanting slogans including, “The people want to liberate Palestine” and “Death to Israel, enemy of the people and provoker of wars.”

Waving Palestinian flags and holding up pictures of Jerusalem, they expressed anger at they “betrayal” by Arab governments perceived to have backed Trump’s move.

In the Indonesian capital Jakarta, thousands protested outside the U.S. embassy, many waving banners saying “Palestine is in our hearts”.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki has said the Palestinians will be looking for a new peace talks broker instead of the United States and would seek a United Nations Security Council resolution over Trump’s decision.

Arab foreign ministers who met in Cairo on Saturday urged the United States to abandon its decision on Jerusalem and said the move would spur violence throughout the region.

Echoing that view, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahayan, the de facto leader of the United Arab Emirates, said the U.S. move “could throw a lifebuoy to terrorist and armed groups, which have begun to lose ground” in the Middle East.

GAZA TUNNEL

Along Israel’s tense frontier with the Gaza Strip, the Israeli military on Sunday destroyed what it described as a “significant” cross-border attack tunnel dug by the enclave’s dominant Islamist group, Hamas.

There was no immediate comment from Hamas on the demolition, which came as Palestinian factions tried to meet Sunday’s deadline for an Egyptian-mediated handover of Gaza by Hamas to Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas after a decade’s schism.

Pre-dawn Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Saturday killed two Palestinian gunmen after militants fired rockets from the area into Israel on Friday.

Lara Dutta Bhupathi, who was last seen in ‘Azhar’, seems to be enjoying life staying away from the spotlight currently. The former Miss Universe loves to spend as much time as she can with her darling daughter Saira.

The actress took to Instagram to share a set of selfies with her baby girl with the caption, “Daughters negotiating skills go something like this!! ?. #daughtersarethebest #chipoftheolbloc”

The mother-daughter duo can be seen doing different things in different pictures. While in one they can be seen staring at each other seriously, in the other they are seen smiling at each other. In yet another one, Saira is seen squashing Lara’s face with her hands.

Can it get any more adorable?

Apple’s iOS is a walled garden that gives the company total control over what can be done with its device. For years, jailbreaking your iPhone was easy and allowed all sorts of custom freedom. It’s been a while since a simple jailbreak has been released. But this week, a Google researcher made an announcement that has the dying jailbreak community ready to get crackin’.

If you’re unfamiliar with jailbreaking, it’s simply a method of exploiting an iOS vulnerability to take full control over what your iPhone can do. Basically, it gives iOS a lot of the freedom and customization that’s available on Android. Apple likes to maintain control over what can be done on iOS because it keeps things running smoothly, it keeps things secure, and there’s plenty of profit in having the power to decide what apps are okay.

When jailbreaking first hit the scene, it offered a way to customize Apple’s rigid interface, use apps that weren’t approved, pirate mobile software, install game emulators, and a lot more. The feature that was likely the most important, at first, was that it allowed people to use the iPhone with carriers that didn’t offer it. These days, that’s not much of an issue. Most of the problems that led people to jailbreak have been solved. And as iOS has become incredibly secure, jailbreaks have dried up, the jailbreak community has crumbled, repositories have closed, and it looked like it was the end of an era.

That is until Google researcher Ian Beer tweeted this out on Tuesday:

As Motherboard points out, this simple message meant a lot to the jailbreak community. Apple just patched iOS 11.1.2 last week, and what developers believe Beer is hinting at is that he’ll be releasing an exploit that could be used by others to create the first full publicly available jailbreak since iOS 10. From the report:

A couple caveats: Beer is probably not going to release a full, untethered jailbreak, meaning you will have to plug the phone into a computer to exploit it every time it boots up. But he is likely going to release the closest thing to a public jailbreak that anyone can find. iOS 11.1.2 is a nearly up-to-date operating system that was only updated last week.

Motherboard spoke to several security researchers who confirmed that they believe that Beer will likely be handing out the keys to the castle for jailbreaking iOS 11, the Reddit community is buzzing, and Jonathan Levine, a well-known expert on iOS, tweeted that he’ll be releasing a toolkit soon to help with the jailbreaking process.

Part of the reason that jailbreaking has become less common is that reporting vulnerabilities to a bug bounty program is big business for researchers. If you find something, you can make a lot of money by reporting it and letting Apple fix it. But Google doesn’t need that money. Beer does research on iOS for Google’s Project Zero, a program aimed at keeping the world more secure (and occasionally embarrassing rival companies). Project Zero locates exploits and gives companies 90 days to fix them before threatening to go public. If everything is what it seems in this case, Apple’s been given its time to fix it, and if you don’t update, you could be playing Nintendo ROMs and using custom skins in no time.

There a couple things to keep in mind. If you’re on an old version of iOS that’s jailbroken, updating to iOS 11.1.2 could put you at risk of losing jailbreak-ability if no tools end up coming out. Also, iOS being extremely secure is good for you. Even though iOS 11 has had a rocky launch, it’s still a great option for protecting yourself. The world is different than it was in 2007 when jailbreaking exploded. Hackers are better than ever. Jailbreak at your own risk.

Sri Lanka bowl first; Shreyas Iyer given ODI cap

Toss: Sri Lanka chose to bowl v India

Both teams got their desired result at the toss as Sri Lanka’s new ODI captain Thisara Perera chose to bowl first against India in Dharamsala. India’s stand-in captain Rohit Sharma said he would have batted with a “good pitch and the sun shining nice and bright.”

Shreyas Iyer was given his ODI cap, and slotted into the No. 3 spot vacated by Virat Kohli, who is resting for the remainder of Sri Lanka’s tour. India also preferred two wristspinners in Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal over Axar Patel’s fingerspin. Ajinkya Rahane, coming into this series with just 17 runs in five innings in the Tests, was left out.

For Sri Lanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Angelo Mathews and Asela Gunaratne returned to the XI from their previous assignment against Pakistan in the UAE. Like India, Sri Lanka chose two fast bowlers, two spinners and a seam-bowling allrounder. Sri Lanka have won just four ODIs in 26 games in 2017, and have been whitewashed in a five-match series three times this year.

India: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt.), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Dinesh Karthik, 5 Manish Pandey, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal

Sri Lanka: 1 Upul Tharanga, 2 Danushka Gunathilaka, 3 Lahiru Thirimanne, 4 Angelo Mathews, 5 Asela Gunaratne, 6 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 7 Thisara Perera (capt.), 8 Sachith Pathirana, 9 Suranga Lakmal, 10 Nuwan Pradeep, 11 Akila Dananjaya

Gujarat votes in first stage of election seen as acid test for Modi

SURENDRANAGAR, India (Reuters) – Tens of thousands of people voted in the first stage of assembly elections in Gujarat on Saturday, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi faces his toughest electoral test since coming to power with a landslide victory in 2014.

Modi has himself led the campaign to ensure that his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) retains power in his home state, as a combined opposition mounted the biggest challenge ahead of the general election in 2019.

Three big polls carried out in the run-up to the vote on Saturday and next week have predicted a victory for BJP but with a greatly reduced majority.

Voters started turning up early in the morning and some had to wait for about 15 minutes due to a malfunction in the electronic voting machine.

In the first few hours, more than 15 percent of voters in Surendranagar district cast their ballot, according to state government officials.

An ABP-CDS poll this week gave the BJP 91-99 seats in the 182-member state house and the main opposition Congress 78-86, suggesting a close fight. To win, a party needs 92 seats.

The surveys have often gone wrong, though, and Modi himself remains far more popular across the country than his rivals, including Rahul Gandhi who is leading the Congress charge to weaken Modi in his home base.

Votes from the election will be counted on Dec. 18 and the results announced the same day.

In the first stage of state assembly elections on Saturday, 977 candidates are trying their luck in 89 constituencies spread across 19 districts of Gujarat, according to the Election Commission.

More than 21 million people will vote during the first stage of the election on Saturday.

Modi has thrown himself into the campaign, addressing dozens of rallies over the past month, saying he alone could deliver on development.

Gujarati businesses, which form the core of Modi’s support base, have complained that the Goods and Services Tax introduced this year and late last year’s shock move to abolish 500 and 1,000 rupee bank notes, accounting for 86 percent of cash in circulation, aggravated already tough economic conditions.

Hindu-majority Gujarat is one of India’s richest and fastest growing states but also one of its most communally divided.

About 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed after a wave of riots rocked Gujarat in 2002, when Modi was chief minister. A Supreme Court investigation found no case against Modi, who denied any wrongdoing.
