Yau, one of the two activists arrested on Wednesday, tells TIME that she believes the charges amount to political persecution. There is no ground to charge unlawful assembly as we had the right to protest, and it was our duty to attend the meetings in the [Legislative Council], she says. Nathan Law, another co-founder of Demosist who was elected as Hong Kong's youngest-ever legislator, says: The protest originated from Beijing's move to undermine Hong Kong's rule of law, adding that these are absolutely political prosecutions. Last month, nine organizers of the 2014 mass pro-democracy protests that paralyzed the city for 79 days, were booked on charges relating to causing a public nuisance during the demonstrations, Reuters reports. The spate of arrests come as Hong Kong's deeply unpopular Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying reaches the end of his tenure.

Taylor Wimpey said in a statement at its AGM today that while the contracts were "legal" – and issued in "good faith", says the BBC – they are "not consistent with our high standards of customer service". The company said it was "sorry for the unintended financial consequence and concern that they are causing". Leasehold contracts are used for most flats and some houses. They involve homebuyers purchasing ownership of their property for a fixed period and subject to certain contractual obligations. A freeholder ultimately owns the property and land, and is paid an annual "ground rent" by the leaseholder, as well as for specific rights such as building extensions. "Other builders have also been criticised for drawing up similar contracts, but are yet to set aside compensation," says the BBC. Personal Finance

If youre a Virgin Media customer with the newest Super Hub 3, heres some bad news the router is allegedly open to being hit by a low-bandwidth denial-of-service (DoS) attack which could completely clog up your connection. This is all because of Intels Puma 6 chipset which powers the Super Hub 3 and other routers, which are also open to abuse, incidentally thats vulnerable to a simple DoS attack, providing the malicious party launching said attack knows your IP address. The kicker here is that even a small amount of traffic will bog down your internet connection, so any attacker pretty much irrespective of how slow their connection is can muster a volley of DoS fire with enough bandwidth to take out your internet service. According to ISPreview , reports claim that even a meagre 1Mbps DoS attack will bump up the latency on your connection by around 20ms, causing a number of peaks and packet loss, too.

Earlier this month, China tried to send its nuclear envoy, Wu Dawei, to North Korea, but that overture was rejected. China is definitely dissatisfied with North Korea’s behavior, but it is unlikely to take any extraordinary measures, says Daniel Pinkston, northeast Asia security analyst and lecturer in international relations with Troy University in Seoul. “As far as causing the types of strains and stress that could destabilize North Korea and lead to some revolutionary change or toppling of the government or anything like that, I just dont see the Chinese doing that,” Pinkston says. “They’ dont believe it is in their interest and I think they are probably right.” Strong signals In recent state media editorials, China has sent strong signals to its northeastern neighbor, warning that if any country risks war, they will have to assume the responsibility of history, notes Bong Young-shik, of the Yonsei University Institute for North Korean Studies in Seoul.
