Gboard learned to copy and paste screenshots from the clipboard
- Google’s popular keyboard app invites users to activate a new feature that adds the captured screenshot to the clipboard. This screenshot can be inserted into any messenger using the keyboard. You can enable the function in the application settings in the “Clipboard” section.
A vulnerability found in Wi-Fi technology that is more than 20 years old
- Enthusiasts have discovered a vulnerability in the wireless protocol that attackers can exploit to access users’ personal data and interact with smart home devices. This flaw is a feature of the Wi-Fi standard, so it cannot be fixed so easily. Vulnerabilities affect even the latest WPA3 standard.
New Magisk version doesn’t support old Android versions
- The updated tool for installing root on Android smartphones and bypassing security checks Magisk 23 has become more stable and received a fix for the SafetyNet certification check. In addition, Magisk no longer supports Android versions older than Android 5.0.
Intel’s neural network makes games realistic.
- Researchers from Intel Labs demonstrated the neural network using GTA V as an example. It processed the gameplay recording, making the picture look like real videos from car recorders. The technology adjusts lighting and adds specific effects. The neural network was “trained” by the Cityscapes machine learning database, a collection of recordings from video recorders from Germany.
MediaTek unveils the first 6nm processor for mid-range devices.
- The new Dimensity 900 5G SoC is designed for mid-range smartphones. The chips are manufactured using the 6 nm process technology and have eight cores – two Cortex-A78 and six Cortex-A55. The processors are equipped with the Mali-G68 MC4 video accelerator. Dimensity 900 supports cameras with resolutions up to 108MP, 4K video recording at 30fps, Full HD + displays with refresh rates up to 120Hz, and LPDDR4X, LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 2.1, UFS 3.1 internal memory standards … The chipset boasts a separate third-generation APU to accelerate AI operations.
The US excludes Xiaomi from the blacklist.
- Xiaomi has agreed with the US government to cancel the blacklisting of the Chinese tech giant. The previous decision prohibited Americans from investing in Xiaomi. Both sides agreed on further actions, and the trial will be resolved without challenging the verdict.
There is now a way to scan user devices through a browser
- The creators of the FingerprintJS service have found that sites can track users across many browsers, including Tor. The method is based on the fact that web browsers can call applications installed in the operating system and receive information about what programs are on the device. This allows you to create a unique device identifier.
Created a subcutaneous implant to monitor the human condition
- Engineers from Columbia University in the United States have presented a microchip with a volume of 0.1 mm3 implanted into the human body by injection. This chip will be able to track processes in the body and transmit information thanks to ultrasound. The device can determine a lot of body parameters without additional equipment. The first version of the chip can only measure the temperature of the human body, but engineers promise more opportunities.
Smart tag Apple AirTag managed to hack.
- A German security researcher was able to hack the Apple AirTag beacon by flashing the microcontroller in the device. This made it possible to change the URL that appears in the notification in the lost label mode. Scanning such an AirTag on a smartphone displays a fake link that can be used for phishing.
