Equifax was allegedly hacked months before the massive breach — by the same criminals

Equifax was hacked this past summer. You already know this. However, according to a new report, the company’s computer systems were also allegedly broken into in March. And here’s the kicker: The same crew might be responsible for both incidents. 

That’s right, the same culprits behind the theft of personal information on potentially 143 million Americans might have been poking around in Equifax’s databases months earlier. 

The news comes to us via Bloomberg, which notes that “three people familiar with the situation” told the publication about the alleged March intrusion. One of those three people claim “the breaches involve the same intruders.” Read more…

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
