The appeal of a contactless payment card is obvious: you just wave your credit or debit card over a terminal and you’ve paid. But it also removes the PIN from the equation, meaning it’s easy for someone to steal and use your card. To combat this, but to also keep contactless payments a breeze, MasterCard has just announced the first credit card with a built-in fingerprint sensor for biometric security.
When making a contactless purchase the card owner simply needs to ensure their thumb is placed on the biometric sensor during the transaction. If the pre-approved thumbprint stored on the card isn’t detected, the contactless or chip-enabled purchase won’t be processed-it’s that simple.
There’s a reason you’re not supposed to use same password for all of your accounts, Large-scale data breaches are all too common. But in case you still refuse to abide by logic and reason (and many of us do), Facebook now uses those stolen-passwords-made-public to tell you what an idiot your being. And to keep you safe.
Basically, Facebook is taking advantage of the fact that hackers will often post their stolen cache of data on sites like Pastebin for all the world to see. So whenever a hoard of usernames and passwords leak from other sites, Facebook goes in, swipes the stolen credentials, and checks it against its own user database. Should it find two sets that match, the user will find something like this alarming little notification upon his or her next login:
But don’t worry-this doesn’t necessarily mean that Face knows what your actual password is. As the company explained in today’s blog post:
This is a completely automated process that doesn’t require us to know or store your actual Facebook password in an unhashed form. In other words, no one here has your plain text password. To check for matches, we take the email address and password and run them through the same code that we use to check your password at login time.
Instead of comparing two sets of plain-text passwords and usernames, Facebook is comparing their encrypted counterparts. So while that does let them figure out whether or not user credentials leaked from another site matched your own, they still don’t know what those user credentials actually are.
Of course, you shouldn’t be using the same password across multiple accounts in the first place. And two-factor authentication is almost always the best preemptive defense you can take. Still, if the worst does happen, and your password for every account you’ve had since middle school does end up on the big, wide internet, at least it’s being used for some good.

When apps are accused of shady behavior, Jonathan Zdziarski is the guy that investigates. And this week, the self-identified iOS forensics expert was quick to respond to requests for a deep dive into Whisper, the supposedly anonymous secret-sharing app that’s been taking heat lately. Guess what: Whisper’s not so anonymous.
Zdziarski just published his preliminary findings on Whisper, and they are not encouraging to anybody who’s used the app with the hope of concealing their identity. Actually, based on the back end, he found that Whisper doesn’t even seem like it’s well-intentioned. And if you’re going to listen to anybody about this sort of thing, Zdziarski is a good bet. The security researcher says that he “frequently trains many federal and state law enforcement agencies in digital forensic techniques and assists law enforcement and the military in high profile cases.” He’s also written books about iPhone hacking.
