Although there's no official word on when or how Apple will resolve the reported data connection and battery life issues users reported after updating to iOS 12.1.4, it's possible that impacted users may have to wait until the release of iOS 12.2 for bug fixes. Elite Daily reached out to Apple for comment on the reported data connection and battery life issues as well as when another iOS update will be available, but did not hear back at the time of publication. Since it's not known if the next update will be another improvement to iOS 12.1, which would make it iOS 12.1.5, or a jump to iOS 12.2, it's not totally clear when an update replacing iOS 12.1.4 with a new version will be available. According to TechRadar, iOS 12.2 will possibly be released within the next few weeks, since the beta version first dropped about a month ago on Jan. 24. Hopefully, the update will resolve some of the reported issues iOS users were experiencing, and it will also bring along new features like four brand new Animoji faces that include a shark, a giraffe, an owl, and a warthog, per Tech Radar.

Bug bounty programs are a great complement to existing internal security programs. They help motivate individuals and groups of hackers to not only find flaws but disclose them properly, instead of using them maliciously or selling them to parties that will. Rewarding security researchers with bounties costs peanuts compared to paying for a serious security snafu.

Apple has finally fixed the eavesdropping bug affecting the Group FaceTime feature through iOS 12.1.4. Alongside the latest iOS update, the Cupertino company has also restored the Group FaceTime server. This means all the devices running iOS 12.1.4 will now be able to use Group FaceTime. However, the feature is still not available for older iOS versions. Apple had disabled Group FaceTime last week after the bug that allowed eavesdropping to users was reported publicly. The iOS 12.1.4 update is available for download for compatible iPhone and iPad models.The official release notes of the iOS 12.1.4 update don't detail any new additions. Nevertheless, Apple's support page confirms that the new iOS update addresses the bug that allowed users to listen to the audio of other participants in a Group FaceTime call even if they hadn't accepted that call. "A logic issue existed in the handling of Group FaceTime calls. The issue was addressed with improved state management," the company wrote on the support page while briefing the fix.
While that;s great news for iPhone users, the kid who found the bug, 14 year old Grant Thompson, has even more reason to celebrate. Apple is compensating Thompson;s family and making an additional gift toward his education.The iPhone maker declined to comment on how much it was giving the Thompson family, however the bug bounty payout comes after Apple was initially slow to respond to multiple attempts from Michele Thompson, the teen 's mother, who reported the bug. Apple 's bug bounty program, which was launched in 2016 to engage outside security researchers, offers as much as $200,000 for a bug.
In this video, I'll show you a 0day exploit that allows me to extract all your (local) keychain passwords on macOS Mojave (and lower versions). Without root or administrator privileges and without password prompts of course. This is not the first time. You might remember KeychainStealer from @patrickwardle, released 2017 for macOS High Sierra, which can also steal all your keychain passwords. While the vulnerability he used is already patched, the one I found still works, even in macOS Mojave. I won't release this. The reason is simple: Apple still has no bug bounty program (for macOS), so blame them. Under #OhBehaveHack (yes, I really like the Austin Powers movies) I will release more videos showing vulnerabilities in the future. #OhBehaveApple will be for vulnerabilities found in Apple products. Maybe this forces Apple to open a bug bounty program at some time.

While iOS devices that are compatible with the latest version of the mobile operating system from Apple get their software updates soon after release, it is a different story on the Android platform. Although the Google Pixel devices get their software updates soon after roll out of the newest version, other manufacturers usually take their time to get their updates ready. The latest in this list is Motorola, which has rolled out the Android 9.0 Pie update to two of its phone this week the Moto G6 Plus and Moto Z3 as per user reports. The rollout comes over five months after Google had unveiled the Android Pie. The software update for the Moto G6 Plus was first detailed in a post on Reddit for a device in Brazil, and spotted by GSMArena. Apart from this, Motorola has also put up the release notes of the update for the Moto Z3 on its official site. For the mid range Moto G6 Plus, the update to Android 9.0 Pie also brings the December Android security patch. For the Moto Z3, the update brings the January security patch, as well as support for 5G mobile connectivity through the 5G Moto Mod. Notably, it's uncertain as usual if this is just a 'soak test' by Motorola the company's term for a limited rollout to iron out bugs, but a wider rollout can be expected soon regardless.
The mod, called Qwinn s Ultimate DAO Fixpack, attempts to fix over 790 bugs that affected the game s overall performance. Unlike previous mods for Dragon Age: Origins, this particular one does not intend to add any additional content aside from those that are already present in the game. The mod creator also made it clear that they did not alter the game s combat mechanics, which is widely seen as clunky and unbalanced.The fun part about this fan created mod is that it also unraveled some hidden content that BioWare was didn t put in Dragon Age: Origins. It is currently unknown why the developer decided to omit these elements in the final build, but it is assumed that time and budget constraints were the primary reason.
