* Cadillac-XLR.jpgA 75-year-old Cleveland man had a harrowing experience last month when his car's electrical system conked out and he was trapped inside for over 13 hours, unaware that he could've freed himself within seconds.

Peter Pyros got into the 2006 Cadillac XLR that was parked in his garage on Aug. 31, but found that it was dead when he tried to start it.
Instead of a lever, the XLR has an electronic push button door release which didn't work without power. Neither did the windows, roof or horn.

Huawei faces security backlash over its use of old US software for UK telecom networks

Security officials in the UK are concerned that the nation's communications backbone could be at risk thanks to a piece of US-made software that is about to go out-of-date. The software is currently being used by Chinese telecoms giant Huawei, the company responsible for supplying networking equipment for BT, Vodafone and their subsidiaries.

The problem surrounds Huawei's use of Wind River Systems' VxWorks operating system. The software will stop receiving security patches and updates in 2020, possibly leaving theWind River Systems' VxWorks operating system open to attack.
