Facebook will set off fireworks on your feed for NYE

This December 31st and January 1st, you can set off animated fireworks on your Facebook News Feed to welcome 2017. Simply click or tap a trigger phrase, such “Happy New Year” (of course), on your friends’ or even your own status update. You’ll know you’re not tapping on a random status in vain, because those phrases will appear in blue text. We looked for triggers ourselves and can confirm that it works both on desktop and on Facebook’s mobile apps. So, if you’re spending New Year’s eve and day indoors and alone, you can go on the social network and alleviate that loneliness by having your own private fireworks show.

If you go Live to greet your friends, you’ll also find new masks especially made to celebrate the beginning of a brand new year. Since it’s probably another seasonal feature, you may want to test it out these next couple of days.

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.
