After a long year of looking for ways to protect its users from abuse and harassment, Twitch recently released a recap of its security efforts in 2021. According to the company, this is just a taste. strategies the company will implement in 2022. According to Angela Hession, vice president of global trust and safety at Twitch, the company plans to add updates to its reporting process and user calls.
Indeed, this year, Twitch plans to make several improvements to its platform, starting with adjustments to its suspicious user detection capabilities. For this, the company intends to use artificial intelligence (AI) technologies launched by the company at the end of 2021 to automatically detect people it thinks are repeat offenders.
Twitch also plans to update its harassment policy and share more “better” educational content on its Safety Center and other areas..
Twitch is trying to combat ‘hate raids’
Twitch has been trying to stop automated harassment campaigns or “hate raids” for a while. This is an attack that often targets streamers from fringe communities using thousands of bots to send hateful messages across comms channels. In September 2021, the company charged accounts CruzzControl and CreatineOverdose for running such campaigns.
Although obviously Twitch is still far from being able to eliminate hate attacks, the previous year Twitch had removed a lot of bots and this year it plans to eliminate even more with the updates it intended to bring this year.
Twitch wants to keep its upcoming updates a mystery
Apparently, the company does not yet want to reveal what it plans to improve in its security settings to prevent any sabotage of its efforts. Indeed, even the government supports Twitch’s idea of not disclosing more details about its plans, as the company will do whatever it takes to better communicate with its customers so that they can feel safe on its platform. .
Nvidia lost. LHR mining protection is also hacked under Linux. This was done by NBMiner developers
Two days have passed since the NiceHash developers cracked the Nvidia LHR protection, as the NBMiner team also pleased their users with the same news. Only this time we are talking about software for Linux.
Thus, Nvidia’s protection completely fell for both Windows and Linux. Unfortunately, both programs are closed source, so it’s not clear what mechanisms the developers used to hack.
Whether the loss of Nvidia will affect the availability and prices of video cards is still difficult to say. At the moment, the cryptocurrency market continues to fall, but sooner or later it will turn around, and gamers may again face shortages and overpriced graphics cards.

“These are machines for sucking out personal data.” Prayer and mental health apps have poor security
Mental health apps have worse privacy protection than most other types of apps, according to a new analysis by Mozilla. We are talking about the entire category as a whole. In addition, things are also bad for prayer applications.
The vast majority of mental health and prayer apps are exceptionally creepy. They track a variety of data, share and capitalize on users’ most intimate personal thoughts and feelings, such as mood, mental state, and biometric data.
The team analyzed 32 mental health and prayer apps. Of these apps, 29 received a Privacy not included warning, indicating that the team is concerned about how the app manages user data.
These applications collect large amounts of personal data in accordance with vague privacy policies. Most applications have also been found to have poor security practices that allow users to create accounts with weak passwords. Considering how much personal information such programs can contain, this is a bad feature.
The list of the worst programs according to the specified criteria included Better Help, Youper, Woebot, Better Stop Suicide, Pray.com and Talkspace. In particular, the Woebot chatbot claims to collect information about users and shares this data for advertising purposes, and Talkspace collects transcripts of user chats.
They work like data-sucking machines with the look and feel of a mental health app. In other words: wolves in sheep’s clothing
