WhatsApp comes with a new mechanism to erase the message!
Loading...

Telegram users will be familiar with the mechanism by which messages are sent in a timely manner. WhatsApp is planning to make it easier to delete messages that have been lost. This is a change from the existing ‘Delete for Everyone’ option. One of the new features is the Disappearing Message, which automatically ejects a certain amount of time. There are 2-time limit options – 5 minutes and 1 hour.

Currently, if we delete the Delete for Everyone option in WhatsApp, we get a notification that we have deleted it on the phone of those who received the message. This notification may also be deprecated in the latest update. The new options are expected to take effect soon.

Critical warning for WhatsApp users

Published

on

Loading...

WhatsApp is widely used for various purposes as it allows users to share messages, photos, and videos in an instant.WhatsApp is the world’s largest cross-platform messaging platform that serves over 1.5 billion users, making it an ideal target for hackers. Of late, WhatsApp is not exactly the torchbearer of digital privacy. But hackers have turned this advantage into a major risk factor as security experts warn users of deadly bug hackers have created to gain access to your smartphones.
The latest threat puts the majority of the WhatsApp users at great risk as hackers could access smartphones using a “specially crafted MP4 file.” This should serve as a warning to billion-plus users on the risks of downloading an MP4 file on WhatsApp. The vulnerability, tagged “critical”, can deploy malware on the target device to steal sensitive files and also perform surveillance, GBHackers had reported.
Facebook issued an advisory on behalf of WhatsApp, which confirms the vulnerability is known to the company.
“A stack-based buffer overflow could be triggered in WhatsApp by sending a specially crafted MP4 file to a WhatsApp user. The issue was present in parsing the elementary stream metadata of an MP4 file and could result in a DoS or RCE,” WhatsApp warned.
The warning also included the versions of WhatsApp that are affected by this vulnerability. If you are using WhatsApp for Android version older than 2.19.274 or iOS versions prior to 2.19.100, you are at huge risk. Additionally, the Enterprise Client versions prior to 2.25.3, Windows Phone versions before and including 2.18.368, Business for Android versions prior to 2.19.104, and Business for iOS versions prior to 2.19.100 are also affected by the MP4 bug.
When an unsuspecting user downloads the malicious MP4 file in question here, it will execute a DoS or RCE attack, which doesn’t require any authentication from the WhatsApp user. RCE (remote code execution) can be used to remotely access the affected user’s smartphone or PC and make admin changes without consent or knowledge of the user.
The only way users can protect themselves from the critical bug is to update to the latest version of WhatsApp on all platforms. Recently, WhatsApp users were warned about a serious security flaw that could potentially allow hackers to steal data and chats using malicious GIFs.

Google is all set to launch its ambitious online gaming service – Stadia on November 19. The company claims to offer various AAA gaming titles that can be played on smartphones, notebooks, and computers with just a high-speed internet connection similar to playing a YouTube video.
Though the company has partnered with various studios to add more games, only 22 games will be available on the day of launch due to some technical glitches. Besides, it will also miss some of the features that will be made available on a later date.
Google Stadia is based on the cloud computing concept, where the actual game processing will happen at a data center filled with computers powered by AMD CPUs and GPUs with a peak transfer speed of 484GB/s. The service will launch only in select markets as of now, and there is no information on the launch of this service in India. Unlike a gaming laptop or a console, where the hardware is the most important aspect, Google Stadia needs superfast internet connectivity to get better gaming experience.

As of now, Google Stadia will cost $9.99 per month in select markets like the US and Canada. Plus, there is also a founder’s edition for $129 which comes with a Stadia controller and three months of Stadia Pro subscription.
Launch Titles On Google Stadia Red Dead Redemption, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider 2013, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Trials Rising, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2, Destiny 2: The Collection (available in Stadia Pro), Farming Simulator 2019, Final Fantasy XV, Football Manager 2020, Grid 2019, Gylt, Just Dance 2020, Kine, Metro Exodus, Mortal Kombat 11, NBA 2K20, Rage 2, Thumper, Samurai Shodown
( only on Stadia Pro).
And titles coming in the future are Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Doom: Eternal, Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, Cyberpunk 2077.

Facebook Launched New App for Payment Services “Facebook Pay”

Published

Loading...

Yesterday, Facebook, the widely used messenger portal, has launched “Facebook “Pay that can be used for payment services across its platforms such as Whatsapp and Instagram. And this can be done even while using the app. The company said the payment on the app can be done through a PIN-based option or biometrics using one’s smartphones. The service shall be made available this week in the US. In the earlier instance, the company said it aims to integrate its messaging infrastructure.

The social networking tool said the company will collect the user’s database such as the payment mode used, date of billing, amount and contact details and the same will be used for showing targeted advertisements to users. Through this app, Facebook Pay accepts most major credit and debit cards, as well as PayPal.Facebook already launched users to send money through the Messenger app. But with Facebook Pay, users will be able to send money via other Facebook apps. To start, it’s rolling out on the core Facebook and Messenger apps, but will be added to Instagram and WhatsApp in the future.

While across the globe, “People already use our apps to shop, donate to causes and send money to each other,” the company said. “Facebook Pay will make these transactions easier while continuing to ensure your payment information is secure and protected.”
It’s also a step towards Facebook’s aim of linking its family of apps together. Earlier this year, Facebook said it’s working on a way to allow WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger users send messages to each other. Critics see the move as protection against antitrust scrutiny the company has received from government agencies and proposals to break the company up.
