Google warns everyone to update their Chrome browser right now

Google warns everyone to update their Chrome browser right nowIt's always smart to keep all of your software up to date, but it's not too often that a developer goes out of its way to stress to all of its users that they should drop everything and apply the latest update as soon as possible. But that is exactly what Google has done this week, as Clement Lecigne of the company's Threat Analysis Group reveals in a blog post that two zero-day vulnerabilities have been discovered in Google Chrome.First reported on February 27th, Google was quick to release an update two days later on March 1st to address the issue. In all likelihood, your Chrome browser updated itself automatically, but if you want to check, go to Help > About Google Chrome, and make sure you're on version 72.0.3626.121. If not, update right away.As Chrome security engineer Justin Schuh explained in a series of tweets on Wednesday, this attack is different from previous attacks on Chrome because, rather than targeting Flash, it targets the Chrome code directly.When Flash was the first exploit in the chain, Google could silently update the Flash plugin behind the scenes, and Chrome would automatically switch over to the updated plugin without any user intervention. On the other hand, this zero-day exploit requires the user to manually restart the browser, so even if the update is installed on your system, you still have to close and reopen the browser for it to take effect.https://twitter.com/justinschuh/status/1103763265119707136The (relatively) good news is that, as of yesterday, Google has "only observed active exploitation against Windows 7 32-bit systems," so if you're on Windows 10 (or even Windows 8), you're probably in the clear. Nevertheless, there's no point in taking any risks, so be sure that your browser is up to date, and if it isn't, update today.

Watch SpaceX’s first Crew Dragon launch to the ISS live right here

Watch SpaceX’s first Crew Dragon launch to the ISS live right hereSpaceX's Crew Dragon — the first crew-capable spacecraft the company has ever produced — is about to be tested in a big way. The very first demonstration mission is scheduled to take place on Saturday morning at 2:49 a.m. EST, and you can watch it live right here. This week, NASA and SpaceX revealed that Crew Dragon had met all the requirements and been cleared for its test flight to the International Space Station this weekend. The mission is incredibly important for both SpaceX and NASA, but you're going to have to get up pretty darn early in the morning to see it take off. SpaceX describes the upcoming event as follows: > SpaceX is targeting Saturday, March 2 for launch of Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This test flight without crew on board the spacecraft is intended to demonstrate SpaceX’s capabilities to safely and reliably fly astronauts to and from the International Space Station as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.The Commercial Crew Program is a very big deal for NASA. The agency has put all their eggs in two baskets, so to speak, and they're betting big on both SpaceX's Crew Dragon and Boeing's Starliner to regularly shuttle astronauts to and from the International Space Station. NASA's agreement with the Russian space program Roscomos is rapidly coming to an end, and without a new agreement in place or crew-capable spacecrafts of its own, NASA astronauts would have no presence aboard the orbiting laboratory. Needless to say, there's a lot riding on this demonstration and NASA is hoping that SpaceX knocked it out of the park. The YouTube video above will go live shortly before the mission is scheduled to begin. The launch window is instantaneous, meaning that if something goes wrong or the weather isn't perfect, we wont' be waiting around to see if things change. If everything isn't perfect and ready to go right at 2:49 a.m. EST, the launch will be pushed back to Tuesday at the earliest.

U.S. backs India's right to defend itself after Kashmir attack

U.S. backs India's right to defend itself after Kashmir attackTensions between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have risen again after India, incensed by the killing of 44 paramilitary police in the deadliest attack in Kashmir in decades, demanded that Pakistan act against the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militant group behind the bombing. On Saturday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said customs duties on all imports from Pakistan would be raised to 200 percent. U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton spoke to his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval on Friday night, promising to help bring those behind the attack to justice, the Indian foreign ministry said in a readout of the phone call.
