According to cybersecurity company Symantec, eight Google Play apps have been infected by malware called Sockbot.

Virus was hidden in various apps, many of them offering free Minecraft skins. Most of the downloads took place in the West; USA, Germany, Brazil, as well as Russia.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium. New colour and update to Android Oreo

Hurray. Sony’s June flagship, Xperia XZ Premium, is getting a new colour variant. It is called Rosso, although I imagine most normal people will be calling it red instead. XZ Premium Rosso should go out for sale sometime in November.What else? As it turns out, Xperia XZ Premium’s OS will stay quite up to date for a while, as Sony wants to update it to Oreo 8.0 before the end of this year. The update will be available to Japanese owners first, but should go out globally shortly afterwards. ...

Nude, app that tries to hide nude pics on your phone and fails to

Who was it made by? Japanese, naturally. What does it do? Long story short, it uses a special algorythm to find any nude photographs you may have saved on your phone and then quickly delete them from both your device’s memory and iCloud. Better safe than sorry! Reportedly, the app is not working very well. Article on Gizmodo described how the author installed the app and set it on a wild goose chase. His phone had no nudes, but the app decided to delete a large number of his pictures anyway. Among the pictures deleted could be found:– woman in a dress sitting on a chair,– ...

BlackBerry Motion advert video. Long battery life, water resistance and more

It is nice to sometimes see a no-nonsense, informative advertisement. I would much rather see render of the phone from every angle and have its features listed out to me than watch some Koreans jump around merrily and take camera snaps of themselves (cough, Samsung, cough). Hence why I approve of this advert of BlackBerry Motion. In case you cannot watch the video right now, I will list the phone’s revealed specifications:– aluminium frame, scratch-resistant display,– Privacy Shade and Locker Mode security suite,– IP67 water and dust certificate,– Android 7.0 ...

Is this HTC U11 Plus? New renders

OnLeaks strikes again, this time with video depicting what may or may not be – but probably is – HTC U11 Plus. As a bonus, he also brought us some of the device’s specifications. Of course all this info can turn out to be false but, first of all, OnLeaks is known for delivering good information and second, U11 Plus will be officially revealed so soon – on November 2nd – that there is almost no room for anything about the phone to change. So, here you can watch the video depicting the device, and below is what is expected to be its specification:– 6′ ...

iOS 11.0.3 or updates that do more harm than good

Consecutive iOS 11 patches were supposed to fix multiple issues with that operating system, the most crucial one being high power consumption – iOS 11 ate through the battery like I eat through primavera with double cheese. Unfortunately, the updates not only did not fix this but they made things worse by adding new glitches. iPhone 8 owners complain about, among other things, a huge lag in phone’s menus or applications. Things are even worse on iPhones 7 and SE; these devices now have to be charged twice every day. Twice. Every. Day.Apple has yet to release an official ...
