Pokémon Go‘s only been in Singapore for half a day, but cheaters are already ruining the experience for everyone.

The record-breaking mobile game finally hit the city state on Saturday after players waited a month since the game’s debut in North America and Australia.

But tap on any of the gyms and you’ll see them occupied by powerful Pokémon of around 2,000 CP, and trainers at level 30 or more.

Given that the game’s only been here since early morning, it’s a pretty safe bet that many of these players have been levelling up over the past month by employing a number of workarounds.

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.
