But some people insist on visiting unofficial app stores — typically on shady websites — because they offer free, counterfeit versions of popular apps. This fraudulently inflates their reputation, according to Check Point researchers. “Not surprisingly, a malware, spread in unofficial markets, can create real damage,” said Zuk Avraham, the founder of another cybersecurity firm, Zimperium. Google says it has blocked 150,000 versions of this kind of nasty cyberattack. But the problem persists. The massive hack appears to be a criminal enrichment scheme. Another 13,000 devices are getting infected and breached daily, according to Check Point researchers who have been tracking this type of cyberattack since last year. (It requires you to enter your Google email address, gives you a response, and offers the company’s “ZoneAlarm” product.)
Alternatively, Android users could check to see if they have downloaded illegitimate versions of any of the apps listed at the bottom of this article. Hackers have gained access to more than 1.3 million Google accounts — emails, photos, documents and more — by infecting Android phones through illegitimate apps. Google has its Google Play store. On Tuesday, Google stressed that users should avoid downloading outside of Google Play. Google has already removed the legitimate apps from its official store that have benefited from this ratings conspiracy, according to a blog post by Adrian Ludwig, the company’s director of Android security. Infected Android smartphones begin to install other, legitimate Android apps — then rate them highly. Smartphone owners are advised to only download certified computer programs from official repositories. Once again, hackers are showing why you should never, ever download apps outside official app stores. They’ve nicknamed the hacking campaign “Gooligan.”
Check Point has set up a website — Gooligan.CheckPoint.com — for people to check if their devices have been hacked. The malware also installs malicious advertising software that tracks users, a potential boon for data-hungry marketers. But according to Google, hackers have not yet tapped that information and stolen it. That discovery comes from computer researchers at Check Point, a cybersecurity firm. The hackers have managed to steal digital “tokens” that give them access to Google services, like a person’s email and photo collection. Apple has its App Store.

3-Year-Old Girl Dies After Accidentally Tangling Window Blind Cord Around Neck in Utah

The Parents for Window Blind Safety tweeted condolences to the Mahe family. While the swelling in her brain reduced, they discovered she had also contracted an unspecified illness and was experiencing seizures. Sunny played volleyball and was an All-American freshman, and Reno played football. Reno said that every positive indication was countered with a negative one. Doctors gave Elsie a breathing test as well as a neurological death exam, according to her mother. A family friend started a GoFundMe page, which also included updates on Elsie’s condition. The updates shared how Elsie’s heart rate would drop and she would respond positively when her parents came to sing to her as she remained sedated. But she remained unresponsive. At times, she was able to breathe on her own, but not for long. Reno and Sunny have seven other children together. The results from her MRI indicated that her “upper lobes went without oxygen long enough to be devastated,” according to an earlier update from the family. “Unconsciousness can happen within 15 seconds and death within two to three minutes,” said Kim Dulic, public relations officer for the safety commission. There was hope when she began breathing on her own, was taken off sedation and moved her leg when her knee was pinched. Lowe’s, Home Depot and Walmart have committed to do the same by 2018. She was flown to Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. They were both athletes at BYU. The family shared the update on social media. Window covering cords are one of the top hidden dangers in the home, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. At the hospital, Elsie was unconscious, sedated and breathing on a ventilator in the intensive care unit. “In some incidents, children were reportedly imitating superheroes or using the beaded chains as necklaces.”
The commission recommends cordless coverings or those with inaccessible cords around young children. She suffered from seizures and was no longer able to breathe without the ventilator Monday night. This year, the Window Covering Manufacturers Association announced that it would develop a revised standard for window covering safety by the end of this year. They are dangerous because strangulation can happen quickly and quietly in areas normally thought to be safe, like bedrooms or living rooms. “Reno and I wept with gratitude to our Heavenly Father that Elsie would be granted a peaceful passing and would be able to save lives through her physical body still,” Sunny posted on Facebook. Her friend ran and told Elsie’s mom, Sunny, who immediately started CPR. Chairman Elliot Kaye has praised retailers like IKEA, Target and Select Blinds for selling only blinds and shades that are safe for children. “The incident data show that children climbed on beds, chairs, tables, and other furniture to interact with the window coverings,” according to a commission staff report on the cords. A GoFundMe account has been set up up for the girl’s family. 40.760779

He spent five seasons in the NFL playing for the Philadelphia Eagles before returning to BYU as a coach this year. Elsie Mahe, the 3-year-old daughter of Brigham Young University running backs coach Reno Mahe, died Tuesday, more than a week after accidentally tangling a window blind cord around her neck. Click here for more information. These are especially dangerous as children progress from walking to running and climbing. Kaye has been addressing the window covering cord safety issue, which he refers to as a “30-year hidden hazard,” since he became chairman in 2014. “CPSC is aware of incidents that have occurred while others, including parents, were in the same room.”
Pull cords, looped bead chains, nylon cords, the inner cords of Roman shades and lifting loops of roll-up shades all pose strangulation hazards, according to the commission. Children as old as 9 have been involved in these incidents. Elsie Mahe is seen in a photo posted to a GoFundMe account. A week earlier, Elsie was playing with a friend when the incident happened, according to a Facebook page created in support of the Mahe family by one of their neighbors.
