  13. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/04/gps-rollover-apparently-cause-of-multiple-flight-delays-groundings/ Date bug on unpatched Honeywell gear likely cause of 777, 787 flight cancellations. SEAN GALLAGHER - 4/9/2019, 11:17 AM Enlarge / Your flight is arriving WAY ahead of schedule, apparently. China Aviation Review via Twitte The world did not come to an end this past weekend when the 10-bit calendar-week counter in the Global Positioning System’s precision timing system “rolled over” back to 0000000—an event that caused older, unpatched GPS systems to suddenly act like they had jumped nearly 20 years back in time. But the long-anticipated reset of the calendar count did apparently lead to cancellations of some airline flights overseas, as technicians failed to catch warnings and update firmware. According to reports on social media, at least one KLM flight—a Boeing 777 bound from Amsterdam to Bogota—and flights involving as many as 15 Boeing 777s and 787s in China were delayed or canceled over the weekend because of calendar-rollover errors on navigation systems aboard those aircraft. Data for some of the flights identified confirmed lengthy delays in departures, with the KLM flight leaving seven hours behind schedule. Ars Technica A Reddit user reported that his girlfriend’s KLM flight, KL741 from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, was “grounded because of ‘something to [do] with the date being wrong and Honeywell can't guarantee the plane is safe.’” GPS “rollover” event on April 6 could have some side-effects GPS’ UTC clock, used for more than navigation, is about to reset. There might be some surprises. SEAN GALLAGHER - 4/5/2019, 10:41 AM Enlarge Michal Fludra/NurPhoto via Getty Image On April 6, the Global Positioning System will reach the end of an era—or more correctly, an epoch. That’s when the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) clock used by the satellite navigation system will reach the limit for its 10-bit “week number” (WN) counter and flip back to 0000000000. GPS time is linked to the official UTC clock time provided by the US Naval Observatory. But the GPS version of the clock tracks the date by counting the number of weeks since the beginning of the current GPS “epoch”—August 21, 1999. So as the clock reaches midnight tonight on the prime meridian, the GPS calendar will suddenly become 20 years out of date. Ars Technica This should not come as a surprise for most newer GPS navigation systems. There has been plenty of warning—GPS went through a similar flip once before. And the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Center issued a warning in April 2018 that this rollover was coming, as it will every 1,024 weeks—until the modernization of the GPS constellation is complete, and then the WN counter will be increased in size to 13 bits. Most newer GPS receivers will shrug off the rollover because they’ve been programmed to accommodate the epoch change. But older systems won’t—and this may prove to have some interesting side-effects, as timing data suddenly jumps by 19.7 years. The clock change won’t directly affect location calculations. But if GPS receivers don’t properly account for the rollover, the time tags in the location data could corrupt navigation data in other ways. But navigation isn't the only concern. There are many systems that use the time for other purposes—cellular networks, electrical utilities, and other industrial systems use GPS receivers for timing and control functions. Since many of these systems have extremely long lifecycles, they’re the ones most likely to have not been updated. The rollover issue isn’t limited to one day. Because of the way some manufacturers accounted for the rollover date in the past—by hard-coding a date correction into receivers’ firmware—their systems might fail at some arbitrary future date. Some have already succumbed: in July of 2017, an older NovAtel GPS system failed, and while the company issued a notice months earlier warning users to upgrade firmware, many remained ignorant of the notice until it happened. Motorola OncoreUT+ systems and some receivers using Trimble’s GPS engines also have failed over the past three years for similar reasons. If you have a GPS receiver embedded in anything you own that has been around for a few years, do yourself a favor today and check for a firmware update.

  15. Tow truck goes into Sacramento River after crash, official says -- SACRAMENTO, Calif. https://www.kcra.com/article/tow-truck-goes-into-sacramento-river-after-crash-official-says/26953843 SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) — A tow truck went over Pioneer Bridge and into the Sacramento River Tuesday night after getting into a crash with a semi-truck, the West Sacramento Fire Department said. Search crews located the tow truck about 30 feet under the water, but had to call off recovery efforts for the night because water conditions were too dangerous, Battalion Chief Scott Pfeifer said. CHP - South Sacramento Released Statement - On March 26, 2019, at approximately 2023 hours, the CHP Sacramento Communications Center received a call of an overturned vehicle into the water that came from the Pioneer Bridge. The callers described the vehicle as a white flat bed tow truck that drove over the center median bridge railing and plunged into the Sacramento River. Units from the South Sacramento CHP Area office and the CHP - Woodland Area office responded to the scene. It was determined that a two vehicle traffic collision occurred on westbound US 50 just east of the Sacramento/Yolo county line. The traffic collision involved a big rig and the flat bed tow truck. After the initial collision, the flat bed tow truck veered to the left, collided with the concrete and metal bridge railing, before going over the side and falling approximately one hundred and fifty feet into the Sacramento River. The driver of the big rig stopped at the scene and cooperated with CHP personnel. Personnel from the Sacramento Fire Department, the DART - Sacramento Drowning Accident Rescue Team, Sacramento Sheriff Marine Unit and CHP - Valley Division Air Operations helicopter H-24 all responded to the area. They were unable to locate anyone in the water or on the shore. DART located the vehicle with sonar in the middle of the river approximately 30’ under water. The water conditions did not allow for any DART personnel to attempt a rescue. The South Sacramento CHP Area office is requesting the public’s help. If you witnessed this collision please contact the South Sacramento CHP Area office, (916) 681-2300. Roselyn Sharma and Shalvinesh Sharma UPDATE: "Donald Singh said his sister, Roselyn, was in a tow truck with her husband heading west on Highway 50 toward the Pioneer Bridge around the time of the crash. He fears the worst." Company Information: Justin Towing Services - Sacramento, California

  19. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/smart-car-alarms-ironically-expose-millions-of-vehicles-to-remote-hijacking/ Aftermarket car alarm systems developed by Pandora and Viper have been found to be vulnerable to remote exploitation, enabling potential attackers to hijack the vehicles they're installed on and to spy on their owners. The exploitable software flaws were found in the smartphone apps used to control the alarm systems developed by Pandora and Viper (known as Clifford in the UK), two of the most popular smart car alarms worldwide. Just taking into account the claims made by Viper on the website of the SmartStart alarm system designed to help customers "Start, Control, and Locate" their cars from "virtually anywhere," the smartphone application has already been downloaded over 3,000,000 times.
  20. Let’s talk about this topic. What are you all doing to make sure your employee stays healthy? What sort of programs do you have in place? Do you do a wellness subsidy and/or tobacco surcharge with your health insurance plan?
  21. the new version of the forums will support a google login that is not google+.
  22. Due to the shut down of Google+ and the Google+ sign-in will be going away, those of you that are using this login will have to use one of the other types I have set up (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, or Microsoft) or the standard username and password. Google will fully shutdown the service March 7, 2019. I plan on those having this on the board to be moved over before then as the next version of the boards software will remove the old google+ sign-in. Thank you,
