This bug on Instagram allows hackers to take over your smartphone

Recently, researchers from Check Point Security have found a dangerous bug in the Instagram application where this bug can be used by hackers to take over the victim’s smartphone.

Yes, not just taking over the Instagram account, this bug is known to allow hackers to take over the user’s smartphone and it is possible that the victim’s smartphone will be planted by even more dangerous malware.

To take advantage of this bug, the hacker will first send a photo containing malware code to the victim via Direct Messages. Only with that, the smartphone of Instagram users can be taken over.

This is because the Instagram application itself initially has access to the user’s smartphone so that if the Instagram application is hacked, the user’s smartphone can also be hacked.

Luckily, Instagram is now known to have fixed this bug. If you are now using the latest version of the Instagram application, then you are safe from these dangerous bugs.

As a result of the discovery of this bug, the head researcher from Check Point, Yaniv Balmas, appealed to all smartphone users to be more careful in giving permission to the applications they install, be it trusted applications such as Instagram.

“People should pay more attention to every permission an application has. Most people don’t care about the access request message and immediately press the yes button. But that is the start of the cyber attack process,” said Yaniv Balmas as dictated by Ubergizmo.

Esta es la cantidad de palabras '5G' que se dijeron en el evento de Apple el pasado mes de octubre

Apple has recently officially announced the presence of its newest smartphone, the iPhone 12 Series, which comes with a number of updates. But the main thing that Apple emphasizes on the iPhone 12 is support for 5G networks.

Yes, Apple is very pleased that they have finally been able to bring 5G support to its iPhone where other smartphone manufacturers have actually started releasing 5G smartphones from the end of 2019.

Despite having to sacrifice a screen that still doesn’t have a 120Hz refresh rate, Apple is apparently quite proud of their iPhone 12 that it says the word ‘5G’ too often.

Recently, a Twitter user by the name of OnlyTechAE has uploaded a video showing a cut of a presentation at the Apple Event on October 14, 2020 yesterday where Apple officials said the word ‘5G’.

The video also shows how many words ‘5G’ was spoken in the presentation. Where these words were spoken by Apple officials to their own CEO, Tim Cook.

One Twitter user also took the time to count how many words ‘5G’ were spoken in the presentation. As a result, there were 68 mentions of the word ‘5G’ in the presentation. This certainly makes a lot of laughs seeing how Apple is very proud of 5G.

Samsung taunts Apple about missing charger adapter on iPhone 12 series

When Apple officially announced the presence of the latest iPhone 12 Series, Apple also announced that it would no longer bring earphones and charger adapters to the iPhone 12 Series box. Of course, this makes a lot of people surprised because no other smartphone brand has done it.

This also turns out to be also used by Samsung, which is a rival of Apple, in order to promote its newest smartphone. Through its official Facebook Page account, Samsung uploaded a photo showing its charger adapter.

In this post, Samsung mocked Apple by mentioning that their Galaxy devices would provide the things they need, such as simple things, namely chargers, the best cameras, large batteries, high performance, and even a 120Hz screen.

“The #Galaxy device will give you everything you are looking for. Starting from the most basic, namely charger, the best camera, battery, performance, memory, and 120Hz screen. Everything is in this smartphone,” wrote Samsung as a mockery to Apple.

Indeed, after Apple announced the presence of the iPhone 12 Series, Samsung began aggressively promoting its newest Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphone. Even a few hours after the event from Apple was over, Samsung began aggressively posting smartphone ads on various social media platforms.

However, it seems that the taunts will not last long. Because in the next few years, other smartphone companies like Samsung will also follow Apple’s steps and eliminate the charger adapter in the box.
