A really bad year for the world’s second-largest email service provider, Yahoo Mail! The companyannounced today, ‘we identified a coordinated effort to gain unauthorized access to Yahoo Mail accounts’, user names and passwords of its email customers have been stolen and are used to access multiple accounts.

Yahoo did not say how many accounts have been affected, and neither they are sure about the source of the leaked users’ credentials. It appears to have come from a third party database being compromised, and not an infiltration of Yahoo’s own servers.

“We have no evidence that they were obtained directly from Yahoo’s systems. Our ongoing investigation shows that malicious computer software used the list of usernames and passwords to access Yahoo Mail accounts. The information sought in the attack seems to be names and email addresses from the affected accounts’ most recent sent emails.”


For now, Yahoo is taking proactive actions to protect their affected users, “We are resetting passwords on impacted accounts and we are using second sign-in verification to allow users to re-secure their accounts. Impacted users will be prompted (if not, already) to change their password and may receive an email notification or an SMS text if they have added a mobile number to their account.”

People frequently use the same passwords on multiple accounts, so possibly hackers are brute-forcing Yahoo accounts with the user credentials stolen from other data breaches.

Yahoo users can prevent account hijacks by using a strong and unique password. You can use ‘Random strong password generator’ feature of DuckDuckGo search engine to get a unique & strong password.

Users are also recommended to enable two-factor authentication, which requires a code texted to the legitimate user’s mobile phone whenever a login attempt is made from a new computer.

Yahoo! was hacked in July 2012, with attackers stealing 450,000 email addresses and passwords from a Yahoo! contributor network

Google Nexus 6 getting ready to roar :-BY HACKER DARKSTAR

Google Nexus series is one of the most popular series of smartphones. Every year, Google adds a new smartphone member into the Nexus series. You must know, Google Nexus series not limited to just smartphones. But the base of the series is of course Nexus smartphone. Google has recently launched its 5th Generation smartphone the LG Nexus 5 and now expectations of people and the next generation technology is forcing people to imagine the next avatar of nexus series the Google Nexus 6 smartphone.

The Evolution:

Nexus 6

The history of Nexus series smartphone is pretty interesting. It started with HTC Nexus One in Jan 2010, then in Dec 2010 Samsung Nexus S, and then in Nov 2011 the Samsung Galaxy Nexus appeared. Later on, in 2012 LG Nexus 4 appeared which broke all the records in terms of sales and price to performance ratio. And the 2013 version is miles ahead then the previous history. Google revealed the LG Nexus 5 on the 31st October and since then the smartphone is selling like hot cakes. Google & LG has defined the standard of performance and specifications with the launch of Nexus 5. However, it is not all the best smartphone of the market but if we compare the price then, yes Nexus 5 is best. Since the Nexus 4, the count of fans of Nexus series reached to uncountable. If people knows, Google will reveal the next Nexus after 4 months and already market has pretty good smartphone manufactured by Sony, Apple, HTC or Samsung then also people will wait for the Nexus smartphone to come out. Yes, I belong to the same fan list. However, now the rumors and leaks for the next Google Nexus 6 smartphone would take the performance to the imaginary end. Yes, 16 nm scale manufactured chipsets are getting ready and with the octa-core processors power the performance would be unbeatable. This upcoming hardware would appear in 2014 for sure. Already many of the manufactures have announced such hardware that they might reveal at Mobile world congress in Feb 2014.

  • HTC Nexus One – Jan 2010
  • Samsung Nexus S – Dec 2010
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus – Nov 2011
  • LG Nexus 4 – Nov 2012
  • LG Nexus 5 – Nov 2013
  • Google Nexus 6 – August 2014?

Nexus 6 release date

Since the launch of Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 in the early November of the year, now people have set the next Nexus 6 release date to be either late October 2014. But none can actually confirm you the release date of Nexus 6.

But there is good news for Google smartphones fans that there is a probability and chances that Google may schedule the Nexus 6 release date in the second quarter of 2014, instead of 3rd quarter. This can be judge by the present smartphone market and the demands of people. The nexus series is affordable solution for those, who want to buy high-end smartphone at low or appropriate prices. And actually Nexus 5 is one of the best high-end smartphone in terms of design, performance, construction and handling. What else you need, it is the complete solution for every possible need of you in terms of smartphone. But we fans of technology and in the greediness of something new, we demand something better before time. Well, it happens sometimes only. Let’s cross our fingers and whisper in the ears of Google that we want, Google Nexus 6 should be released in the second quarter of 2014.

On Feb 27, Google’s Sundar Pichai confirmed the news that the new Nexus phone will not be launched during first half of the year, but he didn’t give any further indication of the actual launch date. Previously, Google has released Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 in late 2012 and 2013 respectively. So, that makes quite a strong case that Google Nexus 6 will be launched also in later part of 2014. Sit tight and relax and we’ll keep you all updated on the release date of Google Nexus 6.

Nexus 6 Display – curved, 3d or flexible?

If you have observed in the Nexus series smartphone, Google launch the Nexus smartphone in the end of the year and with all the high end specifications that are currently the trend or the things that would be just a new trend. Google maintains the equilibrium for the trend and demand. We don’t mean, it wait throughout the year and picks the positive high end specifications, mix them and create a beast. The originality of Nexus smartphone is always an impressive factor. However, to stand in the market, Google has to pick such specifications. Haters can pick any reason to criticize.

 We can easily find few smartphone Geek that hate the nexus 5. But the reality is judged by the mass. If we talk about the future generation Google Nexus 6 smartphone, then it would of course match the trend of the time. Already Samsung and LG have taken the initiative to bring the curved display smartphone and the little success of the curved display smartphone has already defined its future and interest of people. The present chances are negligible that we would see curved display Nexus 6. But who knows, if Google has not even decided yet. They are busy in selling nexus 5, just kidding.

Just a month ago, a Chinese manufacturer has released world’s first 2K resolution display smartphone and the results and interest of people is pretty impressive and Samsung is also going to launch a such smartphone very soon. Now, you can judge the right trend. Better rendering capability, new color scheme, high end resolution is the demand of people and manufactures will of course take this to next level. 2K resolutions (Ultra High Definition) smartphone display could be normal in 2014 and Google would not lack in the race. Google is itself a winner and it will win for sure.  Soon, we will see the concept Nexus 6 images created by fans and designers. Also, there are rumors Galaxy Note 4 would come up with 2K / 4K resolution display.

Google Nexus 6 specifications

  • True octa-core, 2.4Ghz+ processor
  • At least 4GB RAM (the present trend is already reached to 3GB RAM)
  • 20MP ultra low light sensitivity camera sensor (expected)
  • 5 inches 2K UHD resolution display
  • 3100 mAh battery
  • Finger print and other security sensor
  • Health, atmosphere and thermo sensor
  • 64GB and 128GB memory versions

None of the manufacturer can complete the all the expectations of a smartphone geek. A geek can even demand for 8GB RAM in a smartphone. There are already few blogs that are not actually claiming but revealed in the rumors that Google Nexus 6 would support the 6GB RAM. I think they don’t mean, Nexus 6 so Ram also 6GB. Well, 6GB RAM is not sensible. Even 4GB RAM is more than enough for a smartphone but we can’t easily predict the hardware of smartphone after few months from now.

The new technology has given birth to the new smartphone era, which is continuously changing and evolving. The Nexus 6 design could be completely different from the present design. But Nexus 5 is the best-designed Nexus smartphone till to this date. And big brother, Nexus 6 might follow the same path and there is the maximum probability that manufactures of Nexus 6 would be LG only.

The Completion

At present not much information is available regarding the Google Nexus 6 release date, specifications, features and price. But the story will not end here. One of the internal leaks has revealed, Nexus 6 could be the final smartphone of the Google Nexus series. Because, what would be called the 2015th Nexus? Nexus 7? Well, already this name is occupied by tablet Google Nexus 7. However, positivity will never die inside the smartphone fans, we know Google will launch it with another name including nexus.
