Yayvo, Pakistan’s leading online shopping store is proud to announce the launch of Xiaomi 4X on Shopping Day, 19th May 2017. In the past, value-conscious customers with a limited budget have had to settle for one of the two options. The first is to purchase an inexpensive smartphone which isn’t built to last or navigate through modern apps, video chat or even games. The second is to settle for a low cost version of top quality smartphones which were released a few years ago, therefore already being obsolete. Now is your chance to get the best of both worlds. A phone jo karai Yay Bhe Aur Vo Bhi! Xiaomi 4X, priced under Rs 20,000 offers an exceptional smartphone experience that comes at a much lower price than high-end phones in the market, but is at par with the best of them.

That alone makes it a must-buy for us. Redmi 4X is a synonym for endurance, fashion and speed. A sleek design paired with rounded edges promise a firm grip and a fashion forward look. The first launch is coming in the black color. It’s dressed in all-metal, passed through anodizing process, enhanced shine through diamond polishing and sand blasting to give a silky smooth surface for a velvety touch. The 5 inches screen fits your hand like a glove, it’s easy to glide and swipe through. This palm-friendly handset is covered with 2.5D glass, found typically in high-end smartphones, to handle serious drops even by the most notorious butter fingers. Octa-core Snapdragon 435 gives you unbeatable performance when you’re multitasking and running multiple apps simultaneously without consuming much power. So whether you like to play games, text a ton, video chat, browse the web or just watch videos, you can do it all and more without it lagging. A convenient fingerprint scanner renders Redmi 4X untouchable by everyone other than you! Reentering long codes to unlock your phone is so last year, finger printing works much faster and is that much convenient. Taking photos has never been better. Redmi 4X features a 13 megapixel camera integrated with high-end optical components.

Do not become a victim of this new Gmail Phishing scam. Be careful and stay safe!!

Do not become a victim of this new Gmail Phishing scam. Be careful and stay safe!!

Security researchers have identified a “highly effective” phishing scam that’s been fooling Google Gmail customers into divulging their login credentials. The scheme, which has been gaining popularity in the past few months and has reportedly been hitting other email services, involves a clever trick that can be difficult to detect. Researchers at WordFence, a team that makes a popular security tool for the blog site WordPress, warned of the attack in a recent blog post, noting that it has been “having a wide impact, even on experienced technical users.” (See these people, whose accounts were targeted.) Here’s how the swindle works. The attacker, usually disguised as a trusted contact, sends a boobytrapped email to a prospective victim. Affixed to that email, there appears to be a regular attachment, say a PDF document. Nothing seemingly out of the ordinary. But the attachment is actually an embedded image that has been crafted to look like a PDF. Rather than reveal a preview of the document when clicked, that embedded image links out to a fake Google login page. And this is where the scam gets really devious. Everything about this sign-in page looks authentic: the Google logo, the username and password entry fields, the tagline (“One account. All of Google.”). By all indications, the page is a facsimile of the real thing. Except for one clue: the browser’s address bar. Even there, it can be easy to miss the cue. The text still includes the “https://accounts.google.com,” a URL that seems legitimate. There’s a problem though; that URL is preceded by the prefix “data:text/html.” Via WordFence  In fact, the text in the address bar is what’s known as a “data URI,” not a URL. A data URI embeds a file, whereas a URL identifies a page’s location on the web. If you were were to zoom out on the address bar, you would find a long string of characters, a script that serves up a file designed to look like a Gmail login page. This is the trap. As soon as a person enters her username and password into the fields, the attackers capture the information. To make matters worse, once they gain access to a person’s inbox, they immediately reconnoiter the compromised account and prepare to launch their next bombardment. They find past emails and attachments, create booby trapped-image versions, drum up believable subject lines, and then target the person’s contacts. And so the vicious cycle of hijackings continues. Google Chrome users can protect themselves by checking the address bar and making sure a green lock symbol appears before entering their personal information into a site. Because scammers have been known to create HTTPS-protected phishing sites,...
