AUSTIN, Texas—On Wednesday morning, a county judge signed the arrest warrant for Cody Wilson, who is accused of sexually assaulting an unnamed underage girl.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Austin Police Department told the public Wilson still wasn't in custody. The Defense Distributed founder's last known whereabouts are Taipei, Taiwan, and he skipped his flight back to the states. Authorities believe he received a tip about the new allegations.

"We know Mr. Wilson frequently travels for business," Commander Troy Officer, of APD’s Organized Crime Division, told assembled press shortly after 2pm. "We don't know why he went to the Taiwan, but we do know that he was informed that he was being investigated."

NewEgg cracked in breach, hosted card-stealing code within its own checkout

The popular computer and electronics Web retailer NewEgg has apparently been hit by the same payment-data-stealing attackers who targeted TicketMaster UK and British Airways. The attackers, referred to by researchers as Magecart, managed to inject 15 lines of JavaScript into NewEgg's webstore checkout that forwarded credit card and other data to a server with a domain name that made it look like part of NewEgg's Web infrastructure. It appears that all Web transactions over the past month were affected by the breach.

Details of the breach were reported by the security research firms RiskIQ (which exposed the code behind the British Airways attack) and Volexity Threat Research today. The attack was shut down by NewEgg on September 18, but it appears to have been actively siphoning off payment data since August 16, according to reports from the security researchers. Yonathan Klijnsma, head researcher at RiskIQ, said that the methods and code used are virtually identical to the attack on British Airways—while the Ticketmaster breach was caused by code injected from a third-party service provider, both the BA breach and the NewEgg attack were the result of a compromise of JavaScript libraries hosted by the companies themselves.

The domain used by the attack,, was hosted on a server at the Dutch hosting provider WorldStream and had a certificate. The domain was registered through Namecheap on August 13, using a registration privacy protection company in Panama. The domain's TLS certificate was purchased through Comodo on the same day. The Comodo certificate was likely the most expensive part of the attackers' infrastructure.

EU investigating German automakers, alleging collusion on emissions tech

The European Commission said on Tuesday that it is opening an investigation into possible collusion among Volkswagen Group, BMW, and Daimler to avoid competition on developing state-of-the-art emissions control technology.

According to Bloomberg, EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager told reporters at a press conference that the investigation is not focused on price-fixing as much as it is focused on the allegation that the companies together "agreed not to use the best technology" in order to cut costs together.

The emissions control technology in question applies to both gas and diesel vehicles in the EU. A press release from the European Commission noted that it suspected the companies of agreeing to limit the development and roll-out of two types of emissions-regulating technology. The first is Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems, which are specific to diesel engines and reduce the amount of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted by the vehicle. The second are "Otto" Particulate Filters (OPF), which reduce the particulate emissions from gasoline vehicles. These emissions treatment systems are based on their diesel counterparts and started appearing in Daimler vehicles after 2014.

Destiny 2: Forsaken review: Hallelujah, Destiny’s back

Ars Technica - 2 hours 14 min ago


When Destiny was released in late 2014, expectations were high. The “looter shooter” genre had shown itself to be a force after the success of Gearbox Software’s Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and developer Bungie—whose pedigree of unmatched gunplay and inventive worldbuilding—had signed a ten-year contract with publisher Activision to build out a deep universe for the franchise. The first mainstream “shared world” FPS/ARPG mashup was set to become a bona fide, capital-T "Thing."

We all know what happened. While Destiny garnered praise for its crisp gameplay and cool setting, it quickly became known as a content-bare shell of a game, strung up on the skeleton of a confusing, half-assed story, with lore that you literally had to go online to explore. The game’s first two DLC drops, The Dark Below and House of Wolves, did little to convince anyone who wasn’t already a fan (even in those dark days, there were fans).

The Taken King expansion, released a year later, changed everything. Suddenly, the game had a coherent, well-produced story. Entire gameplay systems were redesigned and rebalanced, and there was now plenty of content for hardcore loot fiends to grind through. By the time the game’s last expansion, Rise of Iron, came out at the end of 2016, Destiny was generally viewed by fans as a fulfillment of that wide-eyed 2014 promise.

Senate passes copyright bill to end 140-year protection for old songs

For the last decade, the Congressional debate over copyright law has been in a stalemate. Content companies have pushed for stronger protections, but their efforts have been stopped by a coalition of technology companies and digital rights groups.

But on Tuesday, we saw a rare moment of bipartisan and trans-industry harmony on copyright law, as the Senate unanimously passed the Music Modernization Act, a bill that creates a streamlined process for online services to license music and federalizes America's bizarre patchwork of state laws governing music recorded before 1972. That will mean effectively shortening the term of protection of older music published between 1923 and 1954—under current law, these songs may not fall into the public domain until 2067.

The bill managed to get the support of several groups that are normally at each others' throats: music publishers, record labels, songwriters, major technology companies, and digital rights groups.

Despite data caps and throttling, industry says mobile can replace home Internet

Ars Technica - 2 hours 34 min ago

AT&T and Verizon are trying to convince the Federal Communications Commission that mobile broadband is good enough for Internet users who don't have access to fiber or cable services.

The carriers made this claim despite the data usage and speed limitations of mobile services. In the mobile market, even "unlimited" plans can be throttled to unusable speeds after a customer uses just 25GB or so a month. Mobile carriers impose even stricter limits on phone hotspots, making it difficult to use mobile services across multiple devices in the home.

The carriers ignored those limits in filings they submitted for the FCC's annual review of broadband deployment.
