It appears there will be no escape from inflated taxi fares for now.

A new set of guidelines released by India’s central government reveals that ride-hailing services such as Uber and its local counterpart, Ola, can now charge customers three times the minimum fare during the day, and up to four times between midnight and 5 a.m.

However, the minimum fare will still have to be submitted by these companies to the state transport departments for approval, reported the Times of India on Thursday. 

The surge pricing will extend only to vehicles that are less than 4m (13 ft) in length, which apply to UberGO and Ola Micro services, that are classified as “economy taxis” in the country. 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.
