Augmented reality puts clothes on near-naked models

There have certainly been attempts at using augmented reality to help choose your wardrobe, but never quite like this. Internet retailer Lyst marked the start of London Fashion Week by using AR to clothe near-naked models in a shop window — effectively, they were living mannequins. You only had to point a phone or tablet at the models to see what they would look like donning some athletic wear or a formal dress, no matter the pose or the viewing angle.

Was this a publicity stunt? Absolutely. However, Lyst suggests that the underlying tech could be very helpful for real shopping. You could get a 360-degree view of clothes as you’d actually wear them, rather than settle for static photos or visit a physical store to try something on. If all goes well, you’d increase the chances of getting the exact look you’re aiming for… and save yourself the hassle of a return.

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
