Samsung was the first company in the market to release the August security patch for its smartphones. Moreover, for three flagship lines at once: Galaxy S20, S21 and S22.
Today, owners of these smartphones in Germany began to receive updates, including a security patch. Usually, users from other countries do not have to wait long. The August security patch fixes dozens of vulnerabilities, so it’s quite important.
Samsung has sometimes been ahead of even Google in recent years, releasing security patches earlier and offering longer support for its flagships, although just three or four years ago, Samsung was almost the worst in this matter.
Hackers hacked Europe’s largest missile manufacturer
Unknown hackers, acting under the nickname Adrastea, hacked into the database of the largest European missile manufacturer – MBDA, formed as a result of the merger of the French Aérospatiale-Matra Missiles, the British Matra BAe Dynamics and the Italian Finmeccanica-Leonardo. This was reported by Security Affairs.
The attackers’ message about gaining access to the company’s network appeared on one of the forums. As evidence, a link to an archive with demo files was attached.
The total amount of stolen data was estimated by hackers at 60 GB. “The uploaded data contains confidential and confidential information about your company’s employees who took part in the development of closed military projects MBDA (PLANCTON, CRONOS, CA SIRIUS, EMADS, MCDS, B1NT, etc..) and about your company’s commercial activities in the interests of the EU Ministry of Defense (design documentation for air defense systems, missile systems and coastal defense systems, drawings, presentations, video and photo (3D) materials, contract agreements and correspondence with other companies Rampini Carlo, Netcomgroup, Rafael, Thales, ST Electronics, etc.”, the hackers wrote.
Adrastea is ready to discuss the cost of the stolen data array. MBDA has not yet commented on the incident.
MBDA manufactures a wide variety of missiles and related installations. For example, the company produces air-to-air missiles AIM-132 ASRAAM (short range, with IR guidance), MBDA Meteor (long range), MICA (medium range, with IR and radar guidance). The company’s product range also includes surface-to-air missiles – Mistral (MANPADS), MBDA Aster (medium and long range), Aspide Mk.1 (medium range), Sea Wolf (SAM), anti-ship (Exocet, Otomat, Marte, Sea Skua) and anti-tank (ERYX, Brimstone, HOT) missiles.
Hacker withdrew about $6 million worth of ETH from decentralized streaming platform Audius
Audius (AUDIO) is an artist-run, community-owned music streaming platform that aims to enable anyone to freely distribute, monetize, and stream audio.
Audius aims to return money and power to artists by connecting them directly to listeners and removing record labels and middlemen from the equation.
If bitcoin can be called the digital analogue of gold, then, according to the developers, Audius aims to be the next Spotify or SoundCloud on the blockchain. “The cryptocurrency music app aims to decentralize and democratize the music industry and give artists back more money and control.”
An unknown person was able to change the configuration of the smart contract for managing Audius, and then created a malicious offer to withdraw $6 million in AUDIO tokens.
An unknown person was able to change data on the voting time for the proposal in the Audius smart contract, as well as the delay in the execution of the voting result. As a result of the fraud, the attacker brought the stolen cryptocurrency for sale, however, due to market slippage, he was able to sell a cryptocurrency worth $6 million for only $1.1 million in Ethereum.
According to the attacker’s address transfer history, the cryptocurrency received from the sale was “laundered” at 100 ETH per transaction through the Tornado Cash mixer.
Audius representatives confirmed the hack. The project developers claim that the functionality of the smart contract has been resumed after a detailed study. Whether Audius will compensate investors for losses remains unclear.
iOS 15 first hacked, Cheyote jailbreak for iPhone and iPad coming soon
The hacker group Odyssey Team has announced the first jailbreak of iOS 15, which will soon release a jailbreak tool called Cheyote.
According to the developers, the Cheyote tool will initially only work with iOS 15.0 until iOS 15.1.1, released last November. The developers are going to provide later support for versions up to iOS 15.4.
Recall that although jailbreak removes restrictions and allows you to change software and download applications not from the App Store, this is a violation of Apple’s user license agreement, which every iOS user agrees to. Hacking will technically void the warranty.
