A 31-year-old Nigerian man, Obinna Obioha, has pleaded guilty before a U.S. court for wire fraud and being part of a scheme that hacked into people’s computers and emails accounts for the purpose of stealing money from the American companies.

U.S. Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Vadim Thomas and Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the FBI made this announcement. Obioha apparently pleaded guilty that while he was in Nigeria, he collaborated with other hackers to hack into computers and email accounts of dozens of people living in the United States and across the globe.

The accused and his collaborators allegedly monitored their victims’ information to identify important commercial transactions. The hacking team then proceeded to create fake email addresses that seem similar but with a slight variation from the targeted victim’s real email address.

The hacking team then used these fake email addresses to send fraudulent invoices to victim’s business associates, instructing them to wire money into bank accounts controlled by Obioha and his team. The hackers took advantage of deals previously negotiated by the victim and duped the victim’s business associates into …read more

At the MWC 2017, South Korea’s tech giant Samsung released a series of Windows 10 tablets said to give Redmond tech giant, Microsoft, a fierce run for its money. True to its words, Samsung, which failed to disclose the retail price of its flagship Windows 10 tablets at the MWC 2017, has just announced the price.

Samsung has announced the retail price for the 10.6-inch and 12-inch Galaxy Book tablets, and they are more affordable compared to Microsoft’s Surface line of devices.

The 10.6-inch Galaxy Book tablet retails at $629.99. This device’s connectivity included Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The 12-inch Galaxy Book tablet starts retailing at $1,129.99 for the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth only version. It also comes with an LTE version which retails at $1,299.99.

Consumers would be glad to know that both tablets come with a free stylus and a keyboard case. Unlike Microsoft’s Surface devices where one must buy the stylus and the keyboard separately, making the purchase more expensive overall compared to Samsung’s Windows 10 tablets. That was a key focus point for Samsung at the MWC 2017, and true to their words, they released the …read more

The world’s biggest advertising platform, Google is considering pulling a move many thought they will never do. Google is thinking of integrating an ad-blocker natively its most popular browser, Chrome.

What drove Google to this move, you wonder? Well, it would appear Google is just as annoyed with some of the ads as you are, and it bets if they can stop those offensive ads, then you might not want to block all the ads.

Most people with ad-blocker installed once came across a few offending ads, and decided to block all ads indiscriminately. Such a move is bad business for the world’s biggest search engine as the bulk of its revenue comes from advertisement across different platforms on the internet.

Google does not want you to block all the ads; just the ones everyone finds offensive. By the definition of the Coalition for Better Ads, an industry group mandated to regulate advertising standards. What makes an offensive ad are those unacceptable types of ads with pop-ups, auto play videos with sound, and the ‘prestitial’ ads that have countdown timers. These types of ads are considered to be …read more

Customers will now be able to pay from their PayPal balance through the Android Pay app or participating stores following a partnership between Google and PayPal.

This move is seen as a strategic move by both Google and PayPal as the mobile wallet space is increasingly growing to become the next frontier of cashless payments. There is currently a fierce competition within the mobile wallet space, albeit the major players being Android Pay, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay.

In the initial days of PayPal and Android Pay partnership, customers will be able to pay from their PayPal balance through the Android Pay app. The integration is also said to be working on more possibilities such as customers using cards stored within PayPal. A move made possible by the recent PayPal’s tokenization partnership with card networks.

Consumers in the U.S. will be able to use PayPal in Android Pay at retailers from Walgreens to Dunkin’ Donuts,” said PayPal COO Bill Ready. “This partnership will enable our customers to pay across even more contexts and will extend PayPal’s mobile leadership and reach as consumers become more comfortable shopping and buying …read more
