If you are a PUBG or Fortnite game player and also an Apple phone user, then sorry we have a piece of bad news for you. Apple recently made available its new iOS 13 updates, but unfortunately, it has several bugs which are left unchecked. iPhone users are unable to play PUBG, Fortnite, and several other high end similar games with ease. They also identified the new three-finger-press-and-hold feature, used for editing text, that is frustrating the gamers for constant interruption of the game. These games are never single-handed playable ones, as it requires a lot of touch inputs and multiple hand impressions on the screens to have control over the characters in the game. Due to the bug, gamers could use only two fingers or a new modus operandi called "claw grip" where they somehow slip and use their fingers in a creative way to play the game.

Recently two threat analysts have identified a new strain of Skidmap Linux malware that not only keeps its cryptocurrency mining operations hidden but also provides the threat actor with the universal access to a malware-infected system through a secret master password. Augusto Remillano II and Jakub Urbanec, two cybersecurity researchers revealed in TrendMicro's latest blog that Skidmap masks its cryptocurrency mining by faking network traffic and CPU-related statistics. It should be noted that high usage of CPU is considered the primary red flag of illicit cryptocurrency mining. They said that this malware loads malicious kernel modules to hide its cryptocurrency mining operations. It uses rootkit, a program that installs and executes code on a system without end user's knowledge. The post also revealed that apart from running a crypto-jacking campaign on the infected system, the Linux malware gives the cybercriminal "unfettered access" to the affected machine. The researchers stated … [Read more...] about New Linux Malware mines cryptocurrency while being undetected

There is no doubt that when we tweet something, it reaches to almost every user of that particular social media and some of them also retweet it to let others know about what is happening around the world. A few days ago such an innocuous tweet started making news that NASA is developing its own cryptocurrency. But is that really happening? If you did not miss any announcement made by the American space agency NASA, it soon turned out that they are not making a cryptocurrency. William Turton, who works for Bloomberg, made an interesting announcement on Twitter that turned into something really different. His tweet says, "Anne Neuberger, Director of NSA's new Cybersecurity Directorate says that the agency will propose hardware and software standards again. Also notes agency is working to build quantum resistant crypto." So, first let's make things clear here, "crypto" means "cryptography" not "cryptocurrency." Turton made his tweet off the back of an announcement by Neuberger at the … [Read more...] about US space agency NASA developing its own cryptocurrency?
