A criminal's tool of choice?
When will people learn?
Facepalm: One might imagine that with so many individuals caught smuggling hardware into China, people would decide it just wasn't worth the risk. But no. Not only has another person tried to avoid paying import taxes, but they also broke the record for the number of China-bound processors strapped to their body: an uncomfortable 239 CPUs, worth around $50,000.
AirTags, better than traditional police trackers?
The officer who killed innocent Andrew Finch was later promoted
"A 4chan troll has to come out of his room," wrote the sheriff who was targeted
Facepalm: Just because you present something as a hypothetical scenario in a video game, it doesn't mean you won't be held accountable. A 38-year-old 4Chan user found this out the hard way after posting a death threat that targeted a Florida sheriff but used the words "in Minecraft" at the end. He was later arrested and is being extradited to face felony charges.

A major threat to the movie industry gone silent, and it likely won't come back
Most of the records are from the US
What just happened? There are plenty of illicit websites trading in stolen financial data, including one called BidenCash, which uses the president's name and his image. To celebrate its first birthday, the site has published a database filled with over 2 million credit and debit card details so anyone can look them up free of charge.
This was always going to happen
In brief: For all the advanced, complicated ways that thieves can access the troves of sensitive data on our phones, the simplest method remains the most effective: discover a victim's passcode before physically stealing the handset. A number of these crimes have taken place recently with iPhone users being the main targets, leading to a response from Apple.
Tile adds anti-theft mode that makes its trackers undetectable, threatens $1 million fine if used for stalking
It requires an extensive verification process
In context: Tackers such as Apple's AirTags are becoming an increasingly popular way of keeping track of items such as car keys, but while they might discourage thefts, they've also made it a lot easier for people to follow someone without them realizing. Tile's new Anti-Theft Mode makes the trackers more difficult to discover, which is potentially bad news for thieves but good news for stalkers. However, Tile is threatening anyone who engages in the latter with a $1 million fine.

"Arrr, beware of RisePro, matey"
In a nutshell: In another showing of why downloading pirated software, games, movies, etc., can be riskier than it's worth, cybersecurity researchers have discovered a new information-stealing malware distributed through fake websites hosting pirated and other illegal content.

Laptops really can do everything these days
But would it cause more problems than it fixes?
Why it matters: Hackers have a new attack vector they have been toying with over the last couple of years --- drone penetration kits. Drones have become much more capable in the last several years, making them a viable option for covertly placing intrusion equipment near a network. Once just a field of theoretical security research, now hacking drones are being found in the wild.
