An eBay sign is seen at an office building in San Jose, CaliforniaBy Deepa Seetharaman and Supantha Mukherjee (Reuters) - EBay Inc's agreement on Tuesday to spin off PayPal next year will give the unit more flexibility to strike deals in the rapidly evolving payments space as growth at the company's traditional e-commerce business slows. The surprise move is a huge about-face for eBay's leadership, including Chief Executive Officer John Donahoe, who resisted shareholder activist Carl Icahn's calls for a split earlier this year and led a months-long campaign to convince investors that eBay should remain intact. ...

Hong Kong Democracy Protesters Are Being Targeted by Malicious Spyware
The culprit is "a very large organization or nation state," experts say

A computer virus that spies on Apple’s iPhone and iPad operating system is targeting pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, according to tech experts.

Known as Xsser, the malicious software is capable of harvesting data including text messages, photos, data logs and passwords from mobile devices, Lacoon Mobile Security said Tuesday.

The spyware is hosted on the same Command and Control domain as an existing fake program for the Android operating system that was disguised as a protest-organizing app and distributed around Hong Kong last week.

“Cross-platform attacks that target both iOS and Android devices are rare, and indicate that this may be conducted by a very large organization or nation state,” said Lacoon in a statement.

Tens of thousands of people have paralyzed key areas of the city over the past few days in support of greater electoral freedom, much to the chagrin of the central government in Beijing.

WeChat adds looping Vine-style video to iOS upgrade
Tencent-WeChat

WeChat, the free messaging and calling app from Tencent, includes all kinds of animated, flashy, multimedia thingies to accompany your basic message. Today, the company delivered its version 6 upgrade for iOS, introducing a new video component called Sight to the service. Sight lets you record six-second looping videos for sharing in personal chat or via Moments, which can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Just slide down the chat screen to reveal the recording interface, press the button, and go.
