Secure Messaging App Telegram Adds Usernames And Snapchat-Like Hold-To-View For Media

Clip Syndicate

Telegram, the security-focused messaging app, now lets you add friends without necessarily knowing their phone number. An update to the iOS and Android apps today has introduced the option to register a username, although all users must still bind their account to a phone number. Usernames must be a minimum of five characters — so you can’t make up for losing out on a one-letter Twitter handle here— and can contain letters, numbers and underscores. Read More >>

Apple Addresses ICloud Attacks While China Denies Hacking Allegations

Without saying much, Apple appears to have sent a clear message to hackers: stop messing around with iCloud users in China. On Monday, a group that monitors online censorship in China accused the People's Republic of intercepting traffic between local users and iCloud.com in an attempt to steal their passwords. In a so-called man-in-the-middle attack, the Chinese government allegedly hijacked virtually all connections to iCloud.com from inside the country using a fake certificate. A day later, Apple appears to have thwarted the operation with a technical fix, though the company has neither mentioned China specifically, nor confirmed whether the change was a direct response to the attacks. But the company also put out a new support page that says it's aware of "intermittent organized network attacks," and warns users not to enter their iCloud username and passwords if they see a warning for an invalid digital certificate. The Chinese government has categorically denied any involvement in the hacking scandal.
