Google has released an extraordinary update to its proprietary Chrome browser for Windows.
The update numbered Chrome 103.0.5060.114 is designed to fix a serious zero-day vulnerability CVE-2022-2294, which was actively exploited by attackers. Vulnerabilities have been assigned a high severity level. Google has not yet disclosed details about the vulnerability and its use in order not to give cybercriminals additional information. Google stated:
Access to bug information may be limited until the majority of users receive a fix. We’ll also keep the restrictions if the bug exists in third party libraries that other projects depend on that haven’t received a fix yet.
However, it is already known that we are talking about a buffer overflow vulnerability discovered by Jan Vojtěsek from Avast in the WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) component.
Google notes that the Chrome update will automatically roll out to users in the coming weeks. However, you can install the update manually right away by simply going to the Chrome menu > Help > About Google Chrome.
Here’s the number: Elon Musk is ready to return to the deal with Twitter, but on one condition
Billionaire Elon Musk said he was ready to buy Twitter on the same terms, but the company needs to select 100 accounts and explain why they can be considered genuine. Verification should be done on Twitter itself.
“However, if it turns out that they lied, there will be no deal.“, Musk wrote on his Twitter account.
Previously, the social network got into court against Musk, demanding that he buy the service, as he promised earlier. The case is expected to be heard in Delaware in October. The court will need to determine whether the billionaire had the right to declare unilaterally to terminate the agreement to buy Twitter or not.
Musk, in turn, filed a counterclaim against the social network. At the same time, the details of the lawsuit are still unknown – the businessman asked to keep them secret.
Note that a few months ago it became known about Musk’s intention to buy Twitter for $44 billion, but the deal stalled after the billionaire did not like the number of fake accounts.
Published screenshots of the scandalous spyware Pegasus, which is used to hack the iPhone and Android smartphones
The Israeli company NSO Group’s Pegasus software has been talked about a lot for a long time, but only a few have had to work with it. Now you can see what it is and how it is organized – screenshots of Pegasus leaked to the Web.
As you can see, the top panel is represented by shortcuts for accessing various smartphone services: contacts, geolocation data, camera photos, microphone recordings. One of the screenshots demonstrates the ability to remotely turn on the microphone, and the other has a “Take a picture” button using the camera. Thus, the user of a hacked smartphone may not even have a clue that wiretapping is being carried out through his phone and video or photo surveillance is being conducted. The software also provides access to correspondence in instant messengers and allows you to execute various commands on your mobile device. With Pegasus, you can hack not only Android smartphones, but also iPhones. However, not all Apple phones are hackable.
The NSO Group says it provides “technology to empowered governments to help them fight terrorism and crime” and claims to be sensitive to human rights. However, in 2021, a scandal erupted: the media published data according to which authoritarian regimes use Pegasus to hack into the phones of human rights activists, opposition journalists and lawyers. Pegasus is also used against politicians: there is evidence that about 600 government officials from 34 countries are among the victims of Pegasus.
Indian crossover Mahindra Scorpio-N for $ 15,000 is being bought up like hit smartphones. 25,000 applications were processed in a minute, the site went down
In India, pre-sales of the Mahindra Scorpio-N crossover have started, and even the Tesla Cybertruck can envy the popularity of this model. In just a minute, the company collected 25,000 bids for the purchase, and bids – with a deposit of $ 227. That is, people are really ready to buy a car.
Not surprisingly, with such a stir, the official website fell. Potential buyers with complaints about the inaccessibility of the web resource poured into social networks, but the situation, apparently, was quickly resolved, as 100,000 purchase requests were collected for a car in half an hour. And all with a deposit. It is interesting that those who have submitted an application for the purchase have time until August 15 to choose a different configuration or, for example, an engine, but after that nothing can be changed. Deliveries of the first cars are promised on September 26, Mahindra is going to produce more than 20,000 cars by December, so there is a chance that all the cars ordered in the first minute will be delivered to their owners before the end of the year.
Why did Mahindra Scorpio-N become a hit in India? The main thing here, of course, is the price. The base version costs $15,200, while the top version costs $24,700. But then, with the start of large-scale sales, the car will rise in price.
Mahindra Scorpio-N is a compact crossover, but able to accommodate seven people. Inside is a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch media system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, as well as Amazon Alexa voice assistant. The Top version has a Sony audio system with 12 speakers.
The crossover is equipped with a 2.0-liter mStallion gasoline engine with 197 hp. and a mHawk diesel engine with a volume of 2.2 liters and a power of 175 hp. Both are mated to a manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. The basic versions are single-wheel drive, the top ones are all-wheel drive.
