Real Madrids preseason struggles continue with loss to Tottenham

Posted on by

first_imgMunich: Real Madrid’s disastrous pre-season continued as they lost 1-0 to Tottenham in Munich. “Our defeat was well deserved,” Real midfielder Tony Kroos told German TV after the match on Tuesday. It’s true that we’re not quite in good shape.” In the second match of the evening, Bayern Munich thrashed Fenerbahce 6-1. Champions League runners up Tottenham will play Bayern in Wednesday’s final. Real will have a chance to find winning form run against a Turkish side that finished their game against the host in disarray.

Humiliated 7-3 last week by Atletico Madrid, Real could thank goalkeeper Keylor Navas, starting in place of injured Thibaut Courtois, for preventing a heavier against an enterprising and more aggressive Spurs team. Madrid survived some goalmouth scares in the first half. After the break, Dele Alli went close twice and 17-year-old Troy Parrott hit the inside of the post.

With Gareth Bale, the source of turmoil in recent weeks, left out of the squad for the trip to Munich and James Rodriguez yet to start after returning from Bayern, Real rarely threatened. Star summer recruit Eden Hazard was invisible. Both teams will be in action again tomorrow. Tottenham play the winner of the Tuesday’s second match, between Bayern and Fenerbahce. Real will have the opportunity to make amends tomorrow against the loser. Zidane’s men then travel to Austria to face Salzburg on August 6, then to Italy for a match against AS Rome, the last friendly before the starting the Spanish league away to Celta Vigo on August 17. In the late game, Bayern scored five in the first half with two goals from Thomas Muller and one each from Renato Sanches, Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman. “We played well from the beginning,” said Mueller who completed his hat-trick in the second half. “Fenerbahce made mistakes with our pressing. When you come into the dressing room at half-time five goals ahead, you necessarily feel good.” Fenerbahce’s German international attacker Max Kruse scored a late consolation goal.last_img read more

Are you suitably paranoid about your home devices cybersecurity

Posted on by

first_imgTORONTO – The proliferation of internet-connected home devices such as thermostats, baby monitors and fridges is creating an ever-expanding interconnected web known as the Internet of Things, or IoT. But security and legal experts warn that machine-to-machine communication is creating a new level of risk — by providing hackers with new vulnerabilities to exploit.“I think being suitably paranoid is appropriate when you’re dealing with IoT technology,” said Mark McArdle, chief technology officer for eSentire.The advent of “smart home” technologies — a type of IoT that includes internet-enabled TVs, security cameras and major appliances — could allow hackers, for example, to break into an everyday device to gather personal information or even hold it for ransom.“Software’s fragile and new problems are discovered in it,” he said.“You have to be able to respond to fix those problems reasonably quickly or else you leave the window open for hackers.”According to various reports, hackers infiltrated Equifax Inc. — in one of the most serious cyberattacks on record — by using a flaw that was identified and disclosed in March. Despite a patch for that flaw, not all Equifax systems were updated in time to prevent the leak of important information — including social security numbers — for millions of people.In the past, companies like Microsoft learned they had to pour considerable resources into security protections or risk losing their customers.But many IoT devices are built with convenience in mind and “security is often not a consideration at all, let alone a primary one,” McArdle said.He added that it’s possible the marketplace will again force suppliers to make cybersecurity a priority, but pointed out that consumers of IoT devices tend to care more about price than privacy protection when making purchasing decisions.The number of consumer-owned connected devices in Canadian households is expected to increase by 60 per cent between now and 2021, according to IDC Canada market analyst Manish Nargas.“So, of course, that does brings in more points of vulnerability, more points where a security breach or hack can happen,” Nargas said.Telecom providers may find themselves under increased pressure to show they’ve taken reasonable precautions, said Toronto-based lawyer Imran Ahmad, a partner with Miller Thomson who specializes in cybersecurity and privacy law.“There’s an expectation, quite frankly, from basic consumers that there’s a minimum guarantee of vetting going on,” Ahmad said.But IDC’s research suggests consumers show relatively little concern about the privacy and security aspects of their household technology — especially after it becomes a familiar part of their life.About 48 per cent of the respondents to a recent IDC survey said they didn’t care about the privacy issues associated with intelligent assistants or they felt the advantages outweighed the risk or that they trusted the supplier.When the same group of respondents was asked about home automation in general, only 20 per cent indicated that privacy risks and 17 per cent indicated that security risks were preventing them from acquiring such technology.Nargas himself was initially wary about buying a Google Home Mini, a smart speaker linked to an intelligent assistant, when it became available in Canada this fall.“I couldn’t get over the idea of something listening to me,” Nargas said.“Now I’m quite surprised about how much and how often I’m using it.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version incorrectly spelled the name of Manish Nargas.last_img read more
