Now turn Yosemite overstepping Maverick. Although not disagree a lot, within 6 days Yosemite has been used by approximately 12.8% MacBook users. Analysts call this is enough to prove that Yosemite is considered more attractive by many Apple users, especially because the new look and feel that is offered.

Even so the result is arguably indeed been predicted earlier. Because when the public beta program Yosemite opened, as well as when Maverick, Apple’s latest OS too far left Mountain View in the number of downloads. Whereas MacBook users who are still using the Mountain View is required to pay $ 20 if you want to upgrade.

Used Apple Pay Start October 20

Last September surprisingly Apple announced the release of Apple Pay, an electronic payment system of the first Apple. Pay the scheduled launch of Apple finally revealed along with the latest release of Apple’s iPad. In his presentation, CEO of Apple, Tim Cook announced the schedule for the launch of Apple Pay will be held on October 20, 2014.


Cook confirm if the electronic payment system has been working with the three major credit card companies, such as American Express, MasterCard, and Visa. Not only that, Apple has already partnered with several retail companies and 500 banks.

However, as quoted from the pages of The Verge, Apple’s new Pay can be used through the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The system works is by combining a finger sensor Touch IDs with embedded NFC in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

In use, the user Apple iPhone 6 Pay close enough to the sensor that is in store for later confirm payment via Touch ID.

‘Google Much Safer than Apple’

Apple CEO Tim Cook quipped that Google ignores the privacy of its users. Even as the user makes advertising goals. Google boss feels the heat hard to hear it and immediately refuted criticism of Cook.

Eric Schmidt

Eric Schmidt, Google’s former CEO who now occupies the position of chairman, stated that Google does not do things as alleged by Cook. Even Google’s Eric claims service is much more secure than Apple. No one told to him about Google’s policies correctly, it’s a pity.

“At Google, we have always been a leader in security and encryption. Our system is much safer and encrypted than others, including Apple. They are trying to catch up, which is a good thing,” said Eric.

Cook himself wanted to emphasize that Apple user data, such as cloud storage service, handled safely. He asserted that the user data will not be used Apple to sell to advertisers. He also insinuated competitors like Google.

“Internet users are starting to realize that when an online service is free, you are not actually the consumers. You are the product itself,” Cook wrote in an open letter. The letter was intended to allow consumers believe Apple service remains safe despite the scandalous nude photos leaked via iCloud.

Kaspersky Virus Detection New Android & iOS

Kaspersky Lab released a new research report that maps the massive international infrastructure that is used to control the implant malware ‘Remote Control System’ (RCS), and identify unknown mobile Trojan that can attack Android and iOS.


This module is part of what is referred to as spyware tools ‘legal’, namely RCS aka Galileo, which was developed by the Italian company, Hacking Team.

List of victims in the above study, conducted by Kaspersky Lab together with the Citizen Lab, including activists and human rights defenders, journalists and politicians.

Kaspersky Lab has conducted a variety of different security approaches to find a server command and control (C & C) Galileo worldwide.

For the identification process, Kaspersky Lab’s experts rely on specific indicators and data connectivity obtained by reversing engineering (reverse engineering) existing sample.

In a recent analysis, Kaspersky Lab researchers claimed to map the presence of more than 320 RCS C & C servers in more than 40 countries. The majority of these servers located in the United States, Kazakhstan, Ecuador, England and Canada.

Related to these new findings, Sergey Golovanov, Principal Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab, stating that the existence of this server in a country does not mean they are used by law enforcement in the country.

However, it makes sense for the user to operate the server RCS C & C in the location that they control – because in the place of legal problems between the state and the seizure of servers small risk.

Implants Mobile RCS

Although it has previously been known that the mobile Trojan for iOS and Android from Hacking Team exists, previously no really can identify, or knowing use in the attack.

Kaspersky Lab experts have researched malware RCS for two years. Earlier this year they were able to identify specific sample from the same mobile module with other RCS malware configuration profile in their collection.

In a recent study, a new variant of the sample was also obtained from the victim through KSN network Kaspersky Lab cloud. In addition, Kaspersky Lab’s experts also work closely with Morgan Marquis-Boire of the Citizen Lab, which examines a collection of malware HackingTeam extensively.

Mentioned, the mastermind behind Galileo RCS build dangerous implants specific for obvious target. Once the samples are ready, the attacker sends them to mobile devices victim.

Some of the known vector infection including spearphishing through social engineering, which is often combined with exploitation, including the exploitation of zero-day, and local infection via the USB cable when the mobile device synchronization.
