If you regularly use Android Auto in your car, then you’re no stranger to connection issues. The problem often stems from an unsuitable or faulty USB Type-C cable, although most end up blaming Android Auto or their phone for it.

However, in many cases it can be quite difficult to determine if the cable is good or if there is something wrong with the car’s USB port. Now Google has made things easier by adding a new diagnostic tool to the latest version of Android Auto.

Android Auto version 7.5.121104 introduces a new startup USB diagnostic tool that checks for cable connectivity and other obstacles to launching Android Auto.

Don’t be surprised if Android Auto’s new diagnostic tool finds a problem with the cable you’re using. USB Type-C cables can have completely different specifications, even though they all look the same, which can cause a lot of problems.

Employees of Apple and Twitter are driven to the offices

Zoe Schiffer, who was recently managing editor of Twitter and now holds the same position at Platformer, said that Apple strictly monitors how employees visit offices.

Apple tracks employee attendance (using electronic badge records) and alerts employees if they don’t show up to the office at least 3 times a week.

Some at Apple, according to Schiffer, say that non-compliance could lead to dismissal, but she added that this does not seem like company policy.

Scissors undercut Windows 11 vulnerability reveals sensitive information from screenshots

A dangerous vulnerability has been discovered in one of the standard Windows 11 applications that could lead to the disclosure of sensitive information to the user. Moreover, at the moment the vulnerability is not closed and attackers can use it.

We are talking about the application Snipping Tool (Scissors). The vulnerability, called aCropalypse, allows you to undo changes made by a user when editing a screenshot, including cropped or blurred parts that hide sensitive data.

When you edit a screenshot, you can save it with the same name as the original file by overwriting it. However, as it turns out, the Windows 11 Snipping Tool does not remove the original information from the file, but simply leaves it added at the end, which is usually invisible to users. With some trickery, a potential attacker can extract hidden information from a file and see what information has been edited.

As you can see, edited screenshots are usually much larger due to the inclusion of information from the original image.

This is a pretty serious vulnerability. For example, if you share a screenshot of an order confirmation page on Amazon, it may contain an address, the same goes for credit card numbers and other sensitive data.
