IN THE NEWS: RESEARCHERS WARN OF `FREAK ATTACK' VULNERABILITY

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- It's called the "FREAK attack." Researchers warn that surfing the Web on Apple and Google devices can leave millions of people vulnerable to hackers. The researchers say the problem can be blamed on an old government policy, which required U.S. software-makers to use weaker security in encryption programs sold overseas. Apple and Google both say they've created software updates to fix the "FREAK attack" flaw. Apple says its update should be available next week. Google says it's rolling out the update to device makers and wireless provider. There's no evidence any hackers have exploited the weakness.

IN THE NEWS: FCC CHIEF DEFENDS NET NEUTRALITY LAWS

NEW YORK (AP) -- The head of the Federal Communications Commission says "there needs to be a referee" for the Internet. Chairman Tom Wheeler is defending the rules the federal agency announced last week to regulate the World Wide Web. The vote to approve what's known as "Net Neutrality" means Internet providers like Comcast and Verizon can't slow or block Web traffic from competitors -- or charge providers like Netflix to speed their traffic along to their subscribers. Wheeler made the comments at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain.

IN THE NEWS: RECHARGABLE BATTERIES REJECTED BY AIRLINES

NEW YORK (AP) -- You may have heard that some major U.S. airlines will no longer be shipping lithium-ion batteries in their cargo holds because of safety concerns. But does that mean you have to worry about the battery that juices up your laptop, smartphone or tablet? The short answer is no. The concern for airlines is that the batteries are usually shipped in bulk packs -- sometimes as many as 5,000 of them together. And if one battery overheats, it can cause a chain reaction that can incapacitate a plane before it can get safely to the ground. While there have been cases in which lithium-ion batteries in electronic devices have overheated, most experts say there's little chance of a single battery causing a serious issue.
