A flaw in recent versions of Internet Explorer was used to attack visitors to a website for U.S. military veterans, and also appears to have been used earlier against French aerospace industry employees, researchers said Friday. The flaw in Microsoft Corp's IE 10 Web browser was reported on Thursday, days after it was used inside the Web page of nonprofit U.S. group Veterans of Foreign Wars. The VFW said Friday that an unspecified federal law enforcement agency is investigating and that the malicious code on its site had been removed. Security firm Websense Inc said it found similar attack code on a page set up on January 20 with a Web address nearly identical to one used by a French aerospace association. That suggests the attacks using the flaw have been going on for at least three weeks, but might have succeeded earlier against higher-value targets and escaped discovery, said Websense Director of Security Research Alexander Watson. FireEye Inc, which discovered the VFW attack, said it appeared connected to previous attacks against the Japanese financial sector, security firm Bit9 and others that Symantec Corp security researchers attributed to a large and well-organized group in China.

South Korea's LG Electronics unveiled a revamped version of its large-screen smartphone G Pro on Thursday, hoping it will help propel the company to the No. 3 spot in global smartphone sales this year. LG Electronics, currently ranked No. 4, is seeking to move past Huawei Technologies Co Ltd as well as Lenovo Group which recently agreed to buy Google Inc's Motorola handset division for $2.9 billion. The deal, if approved by regulators, would catapult Lenovo from No. 5 to No. 3 - a threat that LG Electronics executives shrugged off. "The Lenovo-Motorola deal has created a great media buzz, but this has not been much talked about within our company," Andy Kim, head of mobile product planning at LG Electronics, told a news conference. LG Electronic's G Pro 2 comes ahead of a rival offering from market leader Samsung Electronics later this month. Apple Inc is also widely expected to launch a new iPhone with a bigger screen this year. It boasts a 5.9-inch screen, bigger than the 5.5 inch screen of the previous model and one of the biggest on the market. It also has a 1-watt speaker system, a first for smartphones and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. More»

Private cloud storage company Dropbox Inc plans to name Google Inc GOOG.O executive Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola Mobility, as its first Chief Operating Officer. Jonathan Rosenberg, the former head of product management at Google, will be appointed as the Chief Operating Officer of Motorola Mobility with responsibility for day-to-day management, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Nikesh Arora, Google's Chief Business Officer, will remain Executive Chairman of the Motorola Operating Board, overseeing strategy, the sources said. Dropbox and Google declined to comment. Lenovo, which bought Motorola Mobility for $2.9 billion in January, said they were aware of Woodside's appointment, which was earlier reported by the Wall Street Journal. "We are aware of this change, but we are absolutely committed to this acquisition, and remain completely confident in the Google and Motorola leadership team," a Lenovo spokesman said in an email to Reuters. The deal is awaiting regulatory approvals, including from the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States to ensure it does not threaten national security. (Full Story) Dropbox, the 6-year-old Silicon Valley startup many expect to go public sometime this year, is taking advantage of flush investors and skyrocketing valuations for fledgling tech companies. Dropbox secured $250 million from a fund managed by BlackRock Inc BLK.N and other investors last month in a new funding round that valued the company at almost $10 billion. More»

Shares of South Korea's Samsung Electronics extended their rebound on Tuesday, rising as much as 3 percent, as currency concerns subsided. "The recent set back in the yen's weakness against the dollar and the won has cleared much worries stemming from currency rates, highlighting the cheap valuation of Samsung Electronics shares following a sluggish January," said Park Kang-ho, a tech analyst at Daishin Securities. Shares of Samsung Electronics, the world's top smartphone maker, rose as much as 3 percent to 1.311 million Korean won ($1,200) on Tuesday, which marked their highest intraday levels in over two weeks. Samsung stocks were heading for a fourth consecutive day of gains. More»

Billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn has backed off from his campaign urging Apple Inc to increase its stock buybacks, citing the company's recent repurchases as well as an influential proxy adviser's call against his proposal. In a letter to Apple shareholders on Monday, Icahn wrote he was ditching his non-binding proposal to force Apple to add another $50 billion to its stock buyback plan, "especially when the company is already so close to fulfilling our requested repurchase target." Apple shares closed up 1.8 percent higher at $528.99 on Monday. For months Icahn had been asking Apple to boost its stock buyback program, proposing the iPhone maker repurchase another $50 billion. On Sunday, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc recommended shareholders vote against Icahn's nonbinding proposal, saying the motion would "micromanage" how the company uses capital. Proxy advisory firm Egan-Jones has also recommended voting against Icahn's plan, which was up for a vote at Apple's February 28 shareholders meeting. Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook told The Wall Street Journal last week he wanted to be "aggressive" and "opportunistic" in buying back shares. He pointed out the company had repurchased $14 billion in stock in the two weeks since reporting financial results that disappointed Wall Street. More»
