Twitter lawyers have charged the head of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, with violating a non-disclosure agreement.
The deal to buy the social network Twitter Elon Musk stalled: the billionaire put it on pause in order to make sure that spam accounts and fake accounts make up less than 5% of social network users. However, in parallel, Musk announced a check of 100 random Twitter accounts for bots. And the lawyers of the social network did not like it.
To find out, my team will do a random sample of 100 followers of @twitter. I invite others to repeat the same process and see what they discover …
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 14, 2022
“Just got a call from Twitter Legal to complain that I violated their NDA because of [инициированной] checks 100 [учетных записей] on bots! It really happened.”Musk wrote on his Twitter page.
If such an additional check of 100 accounts (in addition to a massive one throughout the social network) was really discussed by Twitter and Musk, and it really fell under a non-disclosure agreement, then the anger of the social network’s lawyers is understandable. True, it is doubtful that it will lead to anything: both Musk and Twitter are interested in making a deal. Twitter is probably even more interested now, because amid the announcements of all these checks for bots, the company’s shares have noticeably fallen in price: from $50 on April 26 to $40 as of the current day. Market capitalization is falling along with them, and against this background, Musk’s offer seems more and more generous: he offered to buy Twitter for $44 billion, and the company’s capitalization at the moment is about 31 billion.
Paid apps in Huawei AppGallery can be downloaded completely free of charge: Huawei has not yet responded
Since Huawei was under US sanctions, Huawei has been forced to switch to its own software solutions as it is banned from using Google services. One of them is the AppGallery app store, which has become a replacement for Google Play.
AppGallery has a pretty serious issue that one developer says has remained unresolved for months, even though he reported it to Huawei back in February. This vulnerability allows anyone with a little bit of technical skill, some free time, and a bit of inclination to put in a little effort to download and install any paid app from AppGallery without paying for it. Of course, for developers who support Huawei by releasing their apps in the AppGallery, this is very bad news.
Dylan Roussel, the developer who discovered the problem, emphasizes that this vulnerability is on the side of Huawei, which still remains unresolved. The bottom line is that the AppGallery API does not offer any protection for paid apps.
Roussel himself was able to download and use several paid apps by exploiting this vulnerability. Obviously, this is a big problem, because with the active exploitation of the vulnerability, developers will receive less profit from the possible sale of their applications.
It remains to be hoped that Huawei will soon solve the problem.
