But strangely, a recent bug with its Origin game client might be one of the company’s most serious issues yet.
That’s because due to a security flaw in the Windows version of Origin, it was possible for hackers to essentially run or install any application on a user’s computer through something as innocuous as a hyperlink.
Discovered by Daley Bee and Dominik Penner of Underdog Security (via TechCrunch), the source of the flaw came from EA’s use of a custom URL protocol that allowed gamers to access a game’s web store from a browser instead of using the Origin client. Unfortunately, because those “origin://” links could also be tricked into launching malicious software, it essentially gave hackers free rein to install almost any program onto an end user’s machine.
According to Bee, by combining a malicious code with a cross-site scripting exploit, malware could be sent and automatically installed on vulnerable systems simply by clicking a link. And to prove the existence of the flaw, the team at Underdog security even created a demo exploit that opened up the Windows Calculator app instead of a link in Origin that appeared to be an EA sales offer.
And it's down again for me.

Google Chrome has built-in ad blocking?-Deozaan (April 08, 2019, 05:51 PM)
Microsoft just released preview versions of its Chromium-powered Edge browser today. If you’ve downloaded it to test it, you’ve probably noticed it’s very stable and performs surprisingly well. It even performs better than Google’s own Chrome browser on Windows 10, despite being built on the same Chromium open-source project. While it’s early days for Microsoft’s new Edge, the company has revealed all of the Google services it has replaced or removed from its new Chromium-powered browser to optimize performance.
Microsoft has removed or replaced more than 50 of Google’s services that come as part of Chromium, including things like ad blocking, Google Now, Google Cloud Messaging, and Chrome OS-related services.
Yeah. The site was working for me yesterday. But today I actually tried to use it and it failed.
Actually, I just tried again and it seems to be working for me now.-Deozaan (April 08, 2019, 01:24 PM)

So are you saying that you want a contextual keymap based on the application that is foregrounded?-wraith808 (April 03, 2019, 01:02 PM)
No, I don't think so. He wants to automate, with a hotkey, the "right-click > choose some context menu action" one does after, typically, selecting files.
@MourningStar: Because right-click shell stuff like this is quite tricky to automate, you might want to look at Cautomaton, released by Worstje, one of the coders here on DC.

This is probably the most painful bug report I've ever read, describing in glorious technicolor the steps leading to Knight Capital's $465m trading loss due to a software bug that struck late last year, effectively bankrupting the company.
The tale has all the hallmarks of technical debt in a huge, unmaintained, bitrotten codebase (the bug itself due to code that hadn't been used for 8 years), and a really poor, undisciplined devops story.
In the meantime I decided to try out one of the free providers, though I'm a little hesitant to put much data on one of these free providers because I'm not sure what kind of security they use by default. Does anyone know if Nextcloud uses end-to-end encryption by default? I don't want the free provider to have access to my data.-Deozaan (March 29, 2019, 05:10 PM)
