Still looking for a Sony WH-1000XM4 deal? Here's the best one on Cyber Monday

If you're hankering after a set of Sony's excellent WH-1000XM4 over-ear wireless noise-cancellers this Cyber Monday, you're not alone – it's one of the most searched for products of the season. And we're here for it.

We have to tell you that briefly (oh, so briefly!) yesterday, they did drop to $193 at Amazon... but that fleeting and euphoric moment passed in the blink of an eye. 

However, they can still be found for $228 in blue, at Amazon, and also via a couple of other online retailers, including in both black and silver at Crutchfield (a deal which ends today) and in all colorways (black, blue and silver) for that $228 low price at Best Buy

In the UK, the best deal is £219 at Amazon (from £350) – although again, we have to tell you that they have in the past dipped to £201.99 (September last year, to be precise) and we haven't seen that this year… We're unlikely to, though – thanks inflation.

Sony WH-1000XM4: was $349.99 now $228 at Amazon
This price drop equals the lowest we'd ever seen them on Amazon prior to the moment they dropped to $193 ever so briefly. We wish that time would return, but we can't promise it will. What we can promise is that you can have the blue finish at Amazon (but if you want the silver set, those are reduced to this price over at Best Buy). And let's face it, these are an excellent set of wireless cans. Although the newer XM5s sound just that tiny bit better, it's a closely run race. These hugely popular over-ear headphones are sonically gifted, boast excellent ANC and, unlike their younger siblings, fold up for easier transportation in their included travel case too… View Deal

These hugely popular over-ear headphones are sonically gifted, boast excellent ANC and, unlike their younger siblings, fold up for easier transportation in their included travel case too. They're an excellent buy at this price and although it's not the absolute cheapest we've ever seen them (that would be £201.99, very briefly, last year) it's almost certainly the lowest they'll go this year. Our advice? Don't miss out if you're on the fence here.… View Deal

Need more info on why the Sony WH-1000XM4 are the go-to choice for Cyber Monday shoppers? Our in-depth review is the place to go.

Their popularity endures despite the launch of the new (and resoundingly different-looking) WH-1000XM5 – which, incidentally, dropped to their lowest ever price for Black Friday and it's still live

Why are they still the most sought after pair? Well, while we applaud Sony's innovative approach and the newer XM5 cans do also sound excellent, those don't fold up for easier travel. And let's face it, it wasn't broke… so there was no need to fix it. You can even read one TechRadar writer's love note to the XM4s, even compared to her AirPods Max. Compelling stuff. 

Look, I love a sub-$50 earbuds deal roundup as much as the next person, but I also love exceptional audio quality and the ability to stick on an excellent pair of cans with Sony's LDAC support, and these beautiful headphones will give you that. 

You can see all of the deals live now, wherever you are, listed below. If I see them drop again, I'll be back like a shot to tell you about it – I promise.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website,, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc
