Yesterday it became known that a hacker hacked Rockstar and leaked a huge amount of data on GTA 6. In particular, there was a partial source code of the game, videos from early builds and much more. However, he also reportedly hacked Uber, and he did it before.
According to the hacker, he simply sent a text message to an Uber employee, pretending to be a representative of the company’s technical support. This is how he got access to the system data, including virtual machines on the AWS platform, Duo, OneLogin, G Suite and VMware vSphere. He only copied the data, but did not destroy or encrypt it.
According to available data, the hacker turned out to be an 18-year-old hacker who, although he did nothing that would affect the work of Uber, nevertheless confirmed by his actions that multimillion-dollar companies are very poorly protected in terms of cybersecurity. The only thing he did was to demand an increase in the salaries of the drivers.
This is not the first such incident. Uber systems were previously hacked in 2016.
Patching for Inception vulnerability in AMD processors can reduce performance by more than two times
Fixing the recently found AMD Inception vulnerability, as shown by the first tests, leads to a huge decrease in performance.
The authors of the Phoronix portal tested the AMD Epyc 7763 CPU with a new firmware designed to fix the vulnerability, and found that in a number of tasks there was no impact on performance, but in some the drop turned out to be simply huge: up to 54%, that is, more than twice. Most often, a significant decrease in performance is recorded in applications working with databases, code compilation, design and image processing.
You need to understand that in this case we are talking about the server processor and the corresponding tests under Linux. How bad things are in the case of consumer Ryzen is not yet clear.
Microsoft’s built-in antivirus began to detect and block pirated activations of Windows 10 and Windows 11
Microsoft has released an update to Microsoft Defender, the built-in antivirus solution for Windows operating systems.
Update number 1.395.318.0 for Windows 10 and Windows 11 adds detection of various Trojans, ransomware and backdoors, and also brings “critical” performance fixes that will improve PC performance, but not only.
However, for many users, the most noticeable change will be that Microsoft Defender has learned to detect pirated versions of the OS, reset activation and block the AutoKMS (Key Management Service), which hackers and pirates used to activate Windows for free. This is one of the most popular tools for bypassing the Microsoft licensing system.
Telegram blocked for national security reasons and to preserve the integrity of personal data in Iraq
The Iraqi Ministry of Communications has announced that it has blocked the popular messaging app Telegram for national security reasons and in order to preserve the integrity of the personal data of users who were allegedly mistreated by the app.
The app is widely used in Iraq for messaging and as a source of news and content sharing. Some channels contain large amounts of personal information, including the names, addresses, and family ties of Iraqis.
The ministry said in a statement that it asked the app to shut down “platforms that leak data from official government agencies and citizens’ personal data… but the company has not responded to any of the requests.”
“The Ministry of Communications reaffirms its respect for the rights of citizens to freedom of speech and communication without prejudice to the security of the state and its institutions,” the statement said.
Telegram did not respond to a request for comment.
