For Sale – Retina MacBook Pro | 2.3GHZ | 16GB | 512GB

For sale is my late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro. Spec is as follows:-

2.3ghz i7 processor
16gb RAM
512gb SSD hard drive
Iris Pro graphics + Nvidia GeForce GT 750M

I’ve just collected it from Apple following the replacement of the whole of the upper/screen assembly under the anti-reflective coating repair programme. This means the upper lid, including the screen, is basically like brand new. Unfortunately for me, while I was in there, the new 2017 MacBook Pro’s with the touch bar caught my eye and I’ve walked out with one of those too! That’s the reason my trusty 2013 model is for sale.

Elsewhere, the condition is very good. Some slight shining on some of the keys and touch pad as to be expected. The base has a few scratches which I’ve tried to photograph but again, nothing major.

It has Sierra installed which I’m just about to restore to factory. It comes with the original box and charger.

Collection is preferred because of the size/weight/value but I’d be happy to post at buyers cost if preferred. I will only post by a suitably trustworthy and fully insured source for obvious reasons so please be prepared to pay the relevant rate. I won’t be posting on the cheap….for both our sakes!

Price and currency: 800
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: Bank transfer or cash on collection
Location: Rotherham, South Yorkshire
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

Yahoo data breach found to affect all 3 billion users

It took Yahoo three years to realize a data breach had occurred in August 2013 and another 11 months to understand the full scope of user accounts impacted by that breach.

Previously, it was reported that 1 billion user accounts were compromised during the 2013 Yahoo data breach — which was separate from the 2014 Yahoo data breach affecting 500 million users — but a new filing has corrected that number by admitting that all 3 billion user accounts that existed in 2013 were impacted.

Between the initial Yahoo breach disclosure in December 2016 and today, Yahoo was purchased by Verizon for $4.5 billion — after a $350 million discount due to the breach — and is now part of a Verizon subsidiary called Oath.

In a filing to the SEC, Oath admitted the new information regarding the Yahoo data breach was uncovered while the merger was taking place.

“Subsequent to Yahoo’s acquisition by Verizon, and during integration, the company recently obtained new intelligence and now believes, following an investigation with the assistance of outside forensic experts, that all Yahoo user accounts were affected by the August 2013 theft,” Oath wrote in its statement. “The investigation indicates that the user account information that was stolen did not include passwords in clear text, payment card data, or bank account information. The company is continuing to work closely with law enforcement.”

The one billion users originally thought to be affected were already notified by email and Oath said the other users affected by the Yahoo data breach have also been notified by email.

According to Yahoo, the stolen user account information from the Yahoo data breach “may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (using MD5) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.” The company said it “invalidated unencrypted security questions and answers” so they could not be used by malicious actors to access accounts.

What to do

However, if anyone affected reused those same security questions on other accounts, experts urged that they be changed.

Leigh-Anne Galloway, cybersecurity resilience lead at Positive Technologies, an information security company headquartered in Framingham, Mass., noted that passwords should also be changed since MD5 hashes are not considered secure.

“While the attack may not have included clear text passwords, or ‘valuable’ data such as card details, as we recently saw in the Equifax hack, the accounts are still at risk, and hackers can do a lot of damage with very little information. Whether you continue to use these accounts today or not, changing your passwords is the only way to guarantee your personal information is secure,” Galloway told SearchSecurity. “The same also goes for Yahoo owned properties, such as Flickr and Tumblr.”

This news will add more fuel to fire for having legal standards on how quickly breach information is revealed and how much detail is required.
Willy Leichtervice president of marketing for Virsec Systems

Willy Leichter, vice president of marketing for Virsec Systems, an application security company based in San Jose, Calif., told SearchSecurity, “This news will add more fuel to fire for having legal standards on how quickly breach information is revealed and how much detail is required. As we’ve seen with the Equifax hearings, even conservatives are calling for legislation moving in the direction of the European GDPR.”

Rich Campagna, CEO at Bitglass, a cloud access security broker company based in Campbell, Calif., said that having all 3 billion users affected in the Yahoo data breach was “unprecedented.”

“It’s difficult to imagine any circumstance in which an organization committed to security could have all network segmentation, policies, and security measures bypassed completely. Even over a prolonged period of time, it is exceedingly difficult to exfiltrate 3 billion records without setting off a single actionable alarm,” Campagna told SearchSecurity. “This goes to show that a seemingly small gap in security can be devastating and have prolonged implications for any business.”

Carl Wright, CRO for AttackIQ, a cybersecurity company based in San Diego, Calif., said “consumers worldwide and shareholders deserve better.”

“It is one thing to deploy security controls, it is completely another thing to know that they are working correctly,” Wright told SearchSecurity. “This is why we believe the best defense is a good offensive — continuously testing your security stack the same way the adversary does.”

Wanted – Premium ultrabook style laptop ~£500 (Mac or Windows)

For a mac, I’m only considering a 13 inch Retina display from around 2013 or MacBook Air.

I sold my i5/128/4 for 425, and would look to spend the same, maybe more depending on condition and age.

For Windows, I’m not fussed. Must be a 4th gen i5 or newer and good condition with an SSD.

Something like an X1 carbon is the sort of thing I’m (well my mother) is after.

13-14 inch display size please.

Let me know what you have and price.

Location: Cardiff

• two knocks to the bottom casing;
• a couple of superficial small scratches on the screen, only visible when the power is off
• one foot cover missing;
• one bottom screw missing (no idea how, given that the machine has never been opened – possibly not replaced by the Apple Store in 2015?).
