Wish there was some way to make your ~basic~ love of celebrities and social media more meaningful? Well you’re in luck. There’s an app for that. 

By combining the power of social media and networking, Csnaps.org — a unique humanitarian platform co-founded by former Bon Jovi guitarist, Richie Sambora — makes it possible for fans and celebrities to turn their photographs, videos, and stories into charitable donations.

Sambora told People that he was inspired to create the app — which encourages avid social media posters to go from “selfie to selfless” — by Ellen’s epic Oscar’s selfie. “When I heard a billion dollars could have been raised with one selfie,” he said, ”I thought, ‘Why give that away for free, when that kind of money could be funneled toward important causes?'” Read more…

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.
