Thanks to a collaboration between Google and the Indian government, finding a public restroom in several Indian cities has just became easier.

Starting today, Google Maps has begun listing thousands of public toilets in India’s National Capital Region (which includes cities such as New Delhi, Noida, Faridabad, Gurgaon and Ghaziabad) and Madhya Pradesh. 

Locating these restrooms using Maps on desktop and Android and iPhone is as simple as typing “public toilet”. 

The service is available in English as well as Hindi, as it was reported to be in the works earlier. The listing on Maps also offers details such as opening hours of corresponding restrooms. 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.
