Jeopardy! finally becomes a free-to-play mobile game

Sony Pictures has finally turned its Jeopardy! TV show into a free-to-play mobile game with the launch of Jeopardy! World Tour on iOS and Android.

Game studio Uken Games and Sony Pictures Television Networks Games built the title for players to immerse themselves in the game show and test their knowledge with clues from the 33-year-old show.

In Jeopardy! World Tour, you can level up and unlock themed content in cities such as Paris, Rome, Beijing, London, Los Angeles, and more. Players can compete with opponents around the world or challenge their own friends in a head-to-head match.

The game has hundreds of thousands of clues in a wide range of categories and enables players to compete against other members of the global Jeopardy! community, boost their scores, and rise to the top of the leaderboards.

Jeopardy! fans are always looking for more ways to play our game,” said show host Alex Trebek in a statement. “I know they will be very happy with this new mobile game that connects them with other Jeopardy! fans everywhere.”

Jeopardy! still has 23 million viewers a week.

“The passionate and engaged Jeopardy! audience will find so much to love in this new mobile edition of the show,” said Harry Friedman, the show’s executive producer, in a statement. “With essential elements like Double Jeopardy! and Final Jeopardy!, the mood and tone of the game will feel genuine but completely reimagined for the mobile audience.”

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.
