The British Library and Shakespeare Wallpaper

The British Library and Vodafone are celebrating Shakespeare’s legacy with “digital wallpaper”. “Shakespeare’s plays began to be printed towards the end of the 16th century in pamphlets known as quartos – pocket-sized and competitively priced for the time. …. The plays will be made available using specially designed “digital wallpaper”, in effect a virtual bookshelf at which users can point their smartphones to scan QR codes and activate their downloads.”

Vodafone Hacked

And TODAY’S hack to tell you about IS… Vodafone. “In a statement today, the company said that between midnight on October 28th and midday on the 29th, it saw an unauthorised party attempt to access customer’s details, including bank account numbers. Unlike its telecoms rival, which saw its website compromised via SQL injection, the carrier believes the source of the attack stems from criminals utilising ’email addresses and passwords acquired from an unknown source external to Vodafone.’”
