The main “hostage” of the confrontation between the United States and Huawei. Meng Wanzhou will be released and can return to China

Published

Almost three years ago, at the initial stage of the confrontation between the United States and Huawei in Canada, Meng Wanzhou, the company’s chief financial officer and daughter of the founder of Huawei, was arrested. And now they are finally preparing to let her go.

Wanzhou will be released and allowed to return to China. We will remind, earlier the USA demanded from Canada to extradite the girl. However, now that the US as a whole has won a victory over Huawei, and the conflict has practically outlived its usefulness, Wanzhou is no longer a lever of pressure. True, they will let her go for a reason.

Reportedly, she will have to agree with the accusations made by the United States and at the same time promise not to commit other crimes against the United States. We recall that she was charged with banking fraud and violation of US sanctions on the supply of equipment to Iran.

The American side has already announced that it is preparing to withdraw the extradition request. At the same time, Wanzhou pleaded not guilty, but within the framework of the agreement, she took responsibility for her main role in the implementation of the scheme of deception of the global financial institution. In particular, she admitted that she significantly distorted information regarding Huawei’s business in Iran when communicating with US banks.

Wanzhou’s lawyer said he was pleased with the agreement.

She pleaded not guilty and we expect indictment to be dismissed in fourteen months

Elon Musk brought down the Shiba Inu course in one word

Published

on

Elon Musk helped popularize the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency this year by posting pictures of a puppy of the same breed on his Twitter page, but Shiba Inu’s price plummeted after Musk said he had no savings in that currency.

Musk has frequently promoted Dogecoin on social media and has spoken out about cryptocurrencies in general. When asked by one user how much he saved in Shiba Inu, he said, “Not at all.” He later clarified that he bought a certain amount of Dogecoin, Bitocoin and Etherium.

Immediately after this message, the cryptocurrency rate fell by 27%, however, it has already begun to recover. It should be added that Shiba Inu has grown by over 400% over the past 30 days and has become the 11th fastest growing cryptocurrency.

Elon Musk also claims that he has no financial interest in cryptocurrency and only supported Dogecoin because he considers it to be a popular cryptocurrency. He also warns investors against putting all their money into this volatile market.

As we can see, Elon Musk’s messages continue to have a strong impact on the cryptocurrency market.

Yesterday we saw what the graphics core of the Apple M1 Max SoC is capable of in one game and a couple of benchmarks. But this is not why they usually buy a MacBook Pro, especially in top-end configurations.

What can such a solution offer to professionals? The developer of the editor Affinity Photo shared the results of testing the new MacBook Pro with SoC M1 Max in full configuration, that is, with 32 GPU cores.

It turned out that in this case the possibilities of Apple’s solution are not just high – they are record-breaking. In the test, the M1 Max scored 32,891 points. In comparison, the top-end Radeon Pro W6900X available for the Mac Pro scores 32,580 points! That is, the GPU in a single-chip system performs at the level (and even slightly outstrips) the dedicated flagship video card with 32 GB of memory and a very high TDP. And such a Radeon card for Mac Pro in the Apple Configurator costs $ 5,600, and if you later buy it separately, then even $ 6,000. By the way, the performance of the Radeon Pro W6900X reaches 22.2 TFLOPS, that is, it is twice as high as that of the M1 Max.

Over 150 apps on Google Play secretly subscribed users to premium SMS services

Published

Among the most affected were users from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the UAE.

Avast specialists published details of a massive fraudulent campaign using over 150 Android apps with over 10 million downloads to sign up for a premium subscription without the knowledge of users.

The programs distributed as part of the UltimaSMS campaign were uploaded to the Google Play Store under the guise of applications with catalogs of discounts, games, keyboards, QR code scanners, photo and video editors, spam blockers, etc. Experts informed Google about 80 fraudulent applications and, although the tech giant promptly deleted them from the Internet catalog, the attackers probably managed to earn millions of dollars on premium subscriptions.

When downloading the application, the user was prompted to enter a phone number and email address to access the program’s functions. After receiving the necessary data, the application signed an unsuspecting user for an SMS service with a monthly payment of $ 40, while the fraudsters received their share as an affiliate partner.

Interestingly, the apps included a system that determined the maximum subscription amount based on the user’s location.

Among the most affected were users from Egypt (2.6 million), Saudi Arabia (2.4 million), Pakistan (2 million) and the UAE (1 million).

Uninstalling a rogue app will prevent new subscriptions from being issued, but will not deactivate existing ones. To do this, the user will need to contact their mobile operator and request the cancellation of all SMS subscriptions.
