OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro get an unusual Hasselblad XPan camera mode with an aspect ratio of 65:24



OnePlus has begun rolling out update for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, which adds a new camera mode called XPan. This is a reference to the Hasselblad XPan, an updated version of the Fuji TX-1 dual format camera released in the late 90s. In addition to shooting on 35mm film, this camera can also shoot in 65mm format for panoramas with an aspect ratio of 65:24 (or 2.7: 1).

XPan Mode in the OnePlus 9 series offers a new interface with a 65:24 aspect ratio viewfinder and limited controls. You have three options. You can switch between two color modes: a slightly modified natural color preset and a default black and white mode based on Ilford Delta 400 film. You can also switch the focal length from 45mm to a wider 30mm, which will switch to an ultra wide angle lens. Finally, you can also control the exposure.

The 65:24 aspect ratio on these phones cannot be recreated natively and the images are cropped. This is a bit ironic, as the main feature of the original XPan was that it created panoramas by actually increasing the field of view rather than clipping or masking the standard one.

Images are also saved at 20 megapixels. The resolution in 45 mm mode is 7872 x 2916 megapixels, and the resolution in 30 mm mode is 7552 x 2798 megapixels. In this case, after you have taken a picture, the screen becomes dark for a few seconds. This “reproduces the ritual meaning of the manifestation of the film.”

OnePlus is also offering some camera performance improvements in this update. Changes have been made to HDR processing, image sharpness, white balance, night landscape exposure, and dynamic range in low light.

Finally, the update also brings the September security patch to the phone.

PT Network Attack Discovery detects 33 more suspicious network activities



Positive Technologies has released a new release of the PT Network Attack Discovery (PT NAD) 10.2 traffic analysis system.

Positive Technologies has released a new release of the traffic analysis system PT Network Attack Discovery (PT NAD) 10.2, which automatically detects the types and roles of network nodes, detects scan, flood and DDoS attacks, and processes traffic losslessly at speeds up to 10 Gbps.

Detection of new threats

In PT NAD 10.2, the number of detected suspicious activities has been increased by 9 times – there are 37 of them now. All of them are displayed in a single feed [1]to help users respond faster to detected threats. The feed collects threats identified using analytics modules (non-signature method) on one page and makes it possible to manage them. PT NAD users will now know in a timely manner when:

Credentials are transmitted to the network in clear text (which can be used by an attacker during an attack);

· Active VPN and proxy servers are monitored (for example, if internal nodes access external OpenVPN or SOCKS5 proxy servers);

· Software for remote control is used (TeamViewer, AeroAdmin, RMS, etc.) or remote commands are executed using PsExec and PowerShell;

· There is malware activity on the network.

In addition, the Activity stream continues to display custom notifications, backtracking indicator of compromise messages, dictionary passwords, and information about unknown DHCP servers.

PT NAD’s activity feed includes 37 types of threats that require a response

PT NAD 10.2 has a built-in mechanism for detecting network scanning, flooding and DDoS attacks. During such attacks, many sessions are created on the company’s network. Instead of storing information about each connection separately, PT NAD now creates one session record and one attack record in the activity stream, which contains aggregated data about the entire attack session. Such a combination “saves” the system: protects against database overflow and increases the stability of the sensor.

Network Node Management: Roles and Types

In order for information security specialists to have complete information about which nodes are involved in the network interaction and how the network works as a whole, PT NAD began to automatically determine the types and roles of nodes. The type indicates whether a particular node is a server, printer, mobile device, or workstation. Role refers to a function that a device performs. Version 10.2 defines 15 roles, including DNS server, VPN, domain controller, proxy server, monitoring system. The user can manually reassign the device type and role.

With the help of the updated filter, the user can find the nodes of interest by IP address, type, role, group membership and other parameters

Knowledge of what constitutes a company’s infrastructure is necessary in order to properly protect it and accurately detect attacks in it., – comments Dmitry Efanov, head of development, PT NAD Positive Technologies… – This information in PT NAD gives security operators an understanding of what devices are on the network and what roles they play, thus helping to take inventory of the network.“.

Capture and analyze traffic

Starting with this version, PT NAD captures traffic on Linux using the DPDK engine (Intel library that provides the most efficient way to capture traffic on Linux among other mechanisms), which processes it losslessly at a speed of tens of gigabits per second.

For greater transparency of internal traffic, PT NAD 10.2 has expanded the list of defined and parsed protocols. The updated system now parses all existing SQL data transfer protocols: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Transparent Network Substrate from Oracle and Tabular Data Stream (the ability to detect it was added in the previous release). PT NAD also defines the protocols of the Elasticsearch system and PostScript printing – with the help of the latter, printers on the corporate network communicate. The total number of detected protocols has reached 86.

Other UX improvements

A number of changes in PT NAD 10.2 are aimed at improving the usability of the product. Now you can find out from the interface about the current status and validity of the license and add or change it yourself. Added the option to copy the link to the card of a specific session or attack, in order to quickly exchange information with other users.

Huawei and BAIC electric vehicle with HarmonyOS, HiSilicon Kirin and Arcfox Alpha S self-driving system to go on sale this year



Earlier this year, Huawei unveiled its new Arcfox Alpha S electric vehicle, co-developed with BAIC and powered by the HarmonyOS operating system. The company has now officially announced that the first Arcfox Alpha S vehicles will go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year.

The Arcfox Alpha S is the result of a partnership between the Chinese tech giant and the automotive brand to create an advanced vehicle with autonomous driving capabilities. The Alpha S was preceded by an investment of over a billion dollars in research and development of electric vehicles for self-driving technology.

Despite the fact that Arcfox is produced under the BAIC trademark, the main features of the new electric car are HarmonyOS and the Huawei Inside system, which means that the car can move without the help of a driver. It also has a Huawei HiSilicon Kirin SoC.

Huawei has already demonstrated its L4 self-driving technology when the Arcfox Alpha S drove 1,000 kilometers through a busy Chinese city without any human intervention. The car managed to achieve this with the help of laser rangefinders, two dozen different radars and 12 cameras.

The car is offered at prices ranging from $ 60,000 to $ 66,000 in various trim levels.
