Battlefield 2042 is mostly all out in the open at the point, save for a few details about operators and the 'Seasons' system that the game will have. However, leaker Tom Henderson has us covered on the latter with some exciting details about all Battlefield seasons, which could give way to the most extensive game support in Battlefield history. Posted on Twitter a few days back, Tom Henderson outlines what is to come for each Battlefield 2042 season, including new specialists, maps, weapons, vehicles, and more. However, the best part of this is that everything will allegedly be free for the first year before switching to the standard Season Pass model. While Henderson has a decent track record...

In the past, there have been some big slip-ups when commentators did not know that they were on-air and began speaking their mind to other people. This seems to have happened again at the Tokyo Olympics when an Italian TV announcer did not realize he was live on-air when he asked for his computer password. Posted to Twitter yesterday by cybersecurity associate professor Stefano Zanero from the Polytechnic University of Milan, the clip has amassed thousands of likes, retweets, and views. In the video during the Turkey-China volleyball game, the announcer asked, in Italian, "Do you know the password for the computer in this commentator booth?" La prossima volta che sentite chiacchierare di sofisticatissime... Read more...
High-reward ransomware appears to be all the rage right now after the REvil hacking group executed the Kaseya attack, encrypting over 1,500 businesses. Now, Saudi Aramco has confirmed a data leak today following an extortionist who demanded $50 million after claiming to have sized a large quantity of data from the world’s largest oil producer. Released today, Aramco’s statement explained that it had “recently become aware of the indirect release of a limited amount of company data which was held by third-party contractors.” While no supplier or contractor was named nor was it explained how the data was lost according to the Financial Times, it seems the company is simply...

A few weeks back, we heard about the potential for some old Battlefield maps making their way to Battlefield 2042 through a rumored “Battlehub” game mode. It appears that some developers are rather excited about this reported “love letter to fans,” as a new mention about the “REDACTED” game mode has slipped out. During EA Play’s Live Spotlight Series today, GM of Ripple Effect Studios (formerly DICE LA) Christian Grass confirmed that fan-favorite Battlefield maps would be coming to Battlefield 2042. While he explained that it would be a while before we hear about the whole thing, this confirmation solidifies previous leaks. I can't say that much about... Read more...
Though both engine and gameplay footage from Battlefield 2042 was shown off during the reveal period earlier this month, there are still some unknowns about the game. The most prominent of these is the fourth “[REDACTED]” game mode, which is described by the Battlefield 2042 team as “a love letter to our core fans,” and that it will be a “new way to play Battlefield.” Now, Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson believes that the unannounced mode may contain remastered maps with weaponry and vehicles from all eras of Battlefield. In his latest video posted on Monday, Tom Henderson first goes over what he calls the “Battlefield Hub” or “BattleHub,”... Read more...
It seems EA is leakier than a boat with a screen door for a bottom as more Battlefield 6 leaks have come out while we get ever closer to the official reveal in June. Images have been posted to Imgur, videos to TikTok, and gifs posted galore showing off an estimated 80% of the official trailer, which looks quite impressive when all put together. Four days ago, leaked Battlefield 6 images were posted to Imgur with a massive and annoying LOL Guy watermark; you can see the images here. Before these images were posted, a new video appeared on TikTok showing what appears to be Battlefield trailer footage interspersed with some real-life footage. The key takeaway from all of this is that the Battlefield... Read more...
Cloud-based additions to mobile apps have become commonplace, but they are not always the best thing for consumers or developers. According to new research, by either misconfiguration or simple lack of security best practices, some mobile app developers have left the personal data of over 100 million people at risk. Cyber threat intelligence company Check Point Research (hereafter CPR) recently discovered that many application developers put user data at risk by not following best practices when “configuring and integrating 3rd party cloud services into applications.” This vulnerable data could include both the developers’ as well as the consumers’ information, which is...

Last week, cybersecurity researchers discovered an open Elasticsearch database that exposed an extensive fake Amazon reviews scam ring. The database contained millions of direct messages between Amazon vendors and upwards of 200,000 customers willing to provide fake reviews in exchange for free products. It is presently unknown who owns the database, but it shows the nasty underbelly of some Amazon vendors and online retail. The SafetyDetectives cybersecurity team’s discovery of this Elasticsearch database proved to be incredibly interesting and valuable as it outlined how Amazon vendors went about getting the fake reviews. The team reported that Amazon vendors send to reviewers, or an... Read more...
Apple's AirDrop can be an incredibly useful utility or just something to send memes to friends sitting nearby. Either way, it is possible that you could be sending more than you bargained for, as researchers have found that an attacker could glean the phone number and email of AirDrop users. Evidently, the researchers reported this privacy issue in 2019, but a reported 1.5 billion users are still vulnerable as Apple has seemingly done nothing. Earlier this week, researchers at the Technical University of Darmstadt published a blog outlining their findings about AirDrop. To preface, AirDrop allows users to share files with address book contacts. To verify that someone is in an address book, AirDrop... Read more...
It does not seem Facebook will be able to catch a break this week after an accidental email revealed the company’s dismissive view of data leakage. The Silicon Valley social media company is facing a possible new leak after a researcher found he could link up to 5 million Facebook accounts to private email addresses daily. On Tuesday, a video made the rounds that showed a researcher, who remains anonymous, demonstrating a tool called “Facebook Email search v1.0.” This person explained to Ars Technica that as many as 5 million emails could be linked to Facebook accounts in a day, even if said emails were private on an account. Interestingly, the only reason we know of this leak... Read more...
It looks as though Facebook isn't the only online platform dealing with the fallout from a massive user data breach. Following reports of a data breach that includes information from 500 million LinkedIn users, officials for the company today confirmed those findings. According to a new report, hackers scraped the site's user data and are currently offering the ill-gotten goods up for sale. According to the report, 2 million records have been provided as a proof-of-concept, while the remaining profiles have a comparatively low [and undisclosed] four-digit price tag. Data obtained from this most recent scraping campaign include users' full names, email addresses, phone numbers, workplace information,... Read more...

Now, renders of the company's latest budget smartphone have leaked: the Moto G 5G. As it name implies, the smartphone will pack 5G connectivity, likely from a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.

Some fans of Call of Duty got a chance to see alleged pre-alpha footage of the new series entry for 2020 thanks to a Twitter leak. The original tweet had a video with nearly 2 minutes of alleged footage from the new game, which is rumored to be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. That tweet has since been deleted, but Walshburg promises there are more leaks to come. The final game will likely look very different from what was seen in the leak, assuming the footage is real, since it was pre-alpha. The video was said to be surprisingly rough, making it hard to get a good sense of the game. However, the footage is believed to be real and was said to look like a Call of Duty game. Call of Duty:... Read more...
A surprising number of leaks concerning iOS 14 and the coming iPhone models have been turning up over the last few months. Leaks concerning Apple hardware and software are certainly not new, but they seem to be occurring more frequently recently. A new report claims that a leaked version of iOS 14 that has been circulating among security researchers and hackers since at least February. While it's unclear how the leaked version of iOS 14 made it into the wild, Vice reports that five sources in the jailbreaking community who are familiar with the leaked version of iOS have said that they believe someone obtained a development iPhone 11 running a version of iOS 14 dated December 2019. That device... Read more...
One of the big trends for smartphones has been minimize bezels so that the display take up nearly the entire front of the smartphone. The problem with that trend is that it left nowhere for the front selfie camera. Apple turned to the notch to give a place to put the selfie camera and required Face ID sensors, while other manufacturers like Samsung turned to a hole-punch display. New renders have leaked that claim to show a future Samsung Galaxy smartphone that has a pop-up selfie camera. If these renders are accurate, Samsung certainly wouldn't be the first to use a pop-up selfie camera. The device also isn't the first time Samsung has used a mechanized selfie camera on its smartphones. Samsung's... Read more...
One of the features that many fans of Google Pixel devices want to land for future smartphones is the ability to record 4K video at 60 fps, and a new leak suggests that feature is in the works. The leak comes courtesy of the Google Camera 7.4 APK. Google Camera 7.4 is an unreleased version of the Google camera app for Pixel devices. It's worth noting that just because the mode is hinted at in the unreleased camera app, doesn't mean that the feature will come to market any time soon, or at all. Hints of the new mode were discovered within a class related to video recording. The telling tidbit of code is "camcorder.4k60fps" mode. A deeper dive into the software didn't turn up any references to... Read more...
A new leak has surfaced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fans will be excited to see. The video goes over some of the finishing moves the players will be able to utilize against downed enemies. Anyone who is against violent video games will want to skip the video as the moves are certainly violent. Each of the characters in the game has their own move, and many of them utilize the same weapons. The video below shows the finishing moves being executed for the available characters. The assumption is that the animations will be used in the game's "Warzone" battle royale mode. While there's no way to confirm that, what else the moves would be for is a mystery. Just because these finishing... Read more...
