Re: No NFC

I don't know why you're being downvoted ... Google Pay is really useful, and the Moto G Power doesn't include it.

Re: Windows has had multiple desktops for bloody years

Anonymous Bullard, some may be implemented as a ShowWindow hack, but the functionality has been around since at least NT4 to create proper desktops and this is the method that the SysInternals tool used. Documented at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms682573(v=vs.85).aspx

Now I know what the rest of the articles on El Reg seem like to "normal" people.

Thought your Android phone was locked? THINK AGAIN

TKW

The anonymous replies seem to miss the point. Other platforms have had a spate of bugs which allow anyone to pick up a handset and bypass the lock screen, giving them somewhere between "full" and "pretty substantial" access to the device with no prior access or action required.

This flaw requires an attacker to persuade a user to install software and then, later, physically access the device and take advantage of the lock-screen bypass software they've installed. Doesn't seem in quite the same class to me?? As others have said, if you're in a position to be able to persuade the target to install software you could just persuade them to install software to access the data / feature you're interested in and forget about having to physically retrieve the handset later.

I'm not sure it counts as Raymond's airtight hatchway because it sounds like a local privilege escalation.

Thanks for trying to explain the TLA, but it's actually a transaction lookaside buffer.
