It appears that Facebook has actually dodged a rather significant security mishap that would have permitted hackers to remotely and secretly trigger individual webcams and publish the taped video to their profiles. According to Bloomberg, a pair of researchers at XY Safety found this bug in July and sent it to Facebook, who paid the pair $ 2,500 in cash for their efforts– that’s five times the typical going rate Facebook provides for bugs individuals submit, an admission that the bug was particularly severe. A Facebook spokesperson told Bloomberg that it found no individuals were affected when it closed the hole, but it’s still a possibly significant flaw the company need to be pleased it fixed before things got awful. “This susceptability, like lots of others we …

Things were looking grim for gaming in April, when the International Trade Commission decided that the Xbox 360 violated Motorola patents and the console’s US future was in doubt. The agency hasn’t necessarily reversed its decision, but it just gave Microsoft a significant (and possibly permanent) reprieve. The Commission has remanded Motorola’s case back to the Administrative Law Judge that gave the initial ruling, which very nearly restarts the clock: a new ruling won’t come for months, and the usual review process guarantees even more of a delay even if the decision once more works in Motorola’s favor. Patent suit watcher Florian Mueller is now confident that the Xbox 360 won’t face any real risk of a ban in 2012, at a minimum. If the new decision doesn’t clear Microsoft outright, it still pushes any ruling past a Microsoft lawsuit’s trial in mid-November, when Motorola might be blocked from attempting any ban using its standards-based patents. We’ve rarely seen a majority or total reversal of this kind of ITC patent dispute before it reaches the appeals stage, but there’s a distinct chance of that flip happening here — especially as the ITC is using Apple’s successful dismissal of an S3 Graphics victory as the judge’s new template.

Oh, sure — we’ve seen a litany of knockoff MacBook Pro units, but how’s about one that actually ships with OS X? As the level of nerve skyrockets towards infinity, an unnamed manufacturer in an unnamed section of China seems to be hawking a lookalike MBP with Snow Leopard onboard — a feat that even Psystar couldn’t achieve for long. As the story goes, around $ 466 buys you a 14-inch machine with a paltry 1.66GHz Atom D510 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive and NVIDIA’s Ion 2 graphics platform. Oh, and a glowing Apple logo on the lid. Unfortunately, the dodgy specifications list seems somewhat reluctant to “admit” that “OS X” is actually loaded on, but it’s there. Trust us. We think.
