Black hole is 30 times bigger than expected

This shouldn’t be possible. Researchers say they’ve detected a supermassive black hole at the center of a newly found galaxy that’s far bigger than current theories allow.

Black holes may not be all that black

Want to know what happens after you pass through a black hole? Just look around you. You might land in another universe that is similar to our own, if Stephen Hawking is right. Or in a very different one.

BadUSB returns: Hackers publish code that could infect millions of USB devices

Bad Santa: BadUSB
Back in July, we wrote about a massive security hole — BadUSB — that potentially gave hackers the ability to hijack or subvert billions of USB devices, from keyboards to printers to thumb drives. At the time, due to the severity of the issue, the researchers who discovered the flaw didn’t publish their BadUSB exploit code. Now, however, two other hackers have worked out how to exploit BadUSB — and they’ve published their code on Github for all to see.
