If the incident on Saturday night is confirmed as terrorism, it would mean the UK has faced three attacks in the space of less than three months following the Westminster and Manchester atrocities in March and May.

As the emergency unfolded, Scotland Yard issued a message urging members of the public in the affected areas to “run, hide and tell”.

The guidance was prepared by counter-terrorism police to set out the steps people should follow in the event of an attack in London.

After the bombing in Manchester, the official terror threat level was raised to the highest – critical – amid fears further attacks could be imminent. read more

Strong Evidence’ North Korea-Linked Group Was Behind NHS Cyberattack

Strong Evidence’ North Korea-Linked Group Was Behind NHS Cyberattack

Security experts say there are “clear code connections” between the global ransomware attack and a North Korea-linked group.

There is “strong” evidence to suggest a North Korea-linked group was behind last week’s global cyberattack, security experts say.

Simon Choi, director of South Korean anti-virus firm Hauri, said the code used in the attack shared many similarities with previous hacks attributed to North Korea-linked Lazarus Group.

The same collective is believed to have been behind the 2014 hack of Sony Pictures and is also suspected of previous attacks on the global financial system. read more

Global Hacking Attack Infects 57,000 Computers, NHS braced for possible repeat of cyberattack chaos on Monday

Global Hacking Attack Infects 57,000 Computers, almost 50 NHS trusts were hit by Friday’s cyberattack – and there are fears of fresh disruption today when people return to work.

Hackers exploit stolen US spy agency tools to launch massive cyber-attack on nearly 100 countries with Russia hit hard.

A global cyber-attack using hacking tools believed to have been created by the US National Security Agency (NSA) has infected tens of thousands of computers in nearly 100 countries.

Cyber-extortionists on Friday tricked victims into opening malicious malware attachments to spam emails that appeared to contain invoices, job offers, security warnings, and other legitimate files.

The ransomware then encrypted data on the computers, demanding payments of $300-$600 to restore access. Security researchers said they observed some victims paying via the digital currency bitcoin, though they did not know what percent had given in to the digital extortionists. read more

OnePlus 5 Could Beat Samsung Galaxy S8 On Performance

OnePlus 5 Could Beat Samsung Galaxy S8 On Performance

OnePlus 5 Could Beat Samsung Galaxy S8 On Performance, if a new leak is to be believed.

There are plenty of ways to test how powerful a smartphone is, but the most popular method is benchmarking. This involves using software that pushes a handset’s processor to its limits, resulting in a final score that describes how well the phone performed. Geekbench does just that, and is one of the more popular benchmarking apps.

Excitingly, we may have some benchmarking details for the OnePlus 5 – before the phone has even been officially announced. GSMArena has received a screenshot of a Geekbench readout for the OnePlus 5 – a.k.a OnePlus A5000 – which it claims came from a “very credible source”. Naturally we can’t verify this information however, so take it with due caution. This could be very easily faked.

But if it’s real then it’s a serious win for the OnePlus 5. The handset managed an impressive 1963 single-core score and a similarly lofty 6687 multi-core score.
