Hackers can determine the phone number by AirDrop

A group of hexway hackers was able to get an iPhone phone number via Bluetooth. They claim that they wanted to check the slogan “What is happening on the iPhone, remains on the iPhone,” which Apple uses to advertise the security of its devices.

They managed to intercept the data packets transmitted by the devices when Bluetooth is turned on. Then they studied what data they contained.

According to hackers, AirDrop sends encrypted packets with a phone number so that the receiving device finds it in the contact list.

Anyone who has a script can take advantage of the vulnerability to collect the numbers of all people who use the Share feature in iOS in a public place.

Similarly, you can get encrypted Apple ID, mail and phone number. To do this, you need to intercept the package when the …

Google brings together units of artificial intelligence and unmanned vehicles

Waymo unmanned vehicle engineers teamed up with AI researchers from DeepMind (both owned by Alphabet) to customize more accurate and efficient autonomous machine algorithms.

Waymo will be able to easily rebuild control algorithms thanks to the population-based training (PBT) technique that DeepMind has developed to improve video game algorithms. PBT accelerates the artificial evolution of machine code – the algorithm selects the code from the most effective commands. The technique reduces the power of the computer to retrain the neural network and speeds up development by half.

Now the drones operate on the usual transport control code and numerous machine algorithms that determine in real time the road lines, signs, other cars and pedestrians. Each new version of the system is strictly checked before launch.

Google experts believe that the automation of learning AI and the effectiveness of the development …


Ships Mask will not "sweat"

The creator of SpaceX, Ilon Musk, said during the online broadcast of the launch of the Cargo Dragon rocket that the reusable orbital spacecraft Starship will use ceramic tiles for thermal protection.

When entering the Mars orbit, the nose of the rocket heats up to 1480 ° C, while the steel melts at 1315 ° C. In February, Musk noted that the steel body of the rocket would be cooled due to “sweating”, that is, cold fuel that would leak through special openings in the outer shell.

It quickly became clear that such a design change could either delay the launch of a starship rocket or make it difficult to reuse it, so the company returned to the traditional protection option. Now ceramic panels are being tested.

In July, Ilon Mark promised that test flights would begin in September or …

The Ice Universe blogger posted on Twitter a photograph of the Vivo Nex 3 display protective glass, which is expected to be released soon. According to him, the uniqueness of the not yet announced smartphone is that the screen will occupy the entire front panel and side faces of the gadget.

The insider also noted that in the NEX 3 there will be no cutout for the front camera in the display. It can be retractable. Or the manufacturer will place it under the display – in the recently shown prototypes of Xiaomi and Oppo.

Perhaps Vivo will generally give up the selfie camera in the smartphone. The company has already resorted to a controversial decision, releasing the Vivo APEX 2019 – a phone without a single connector.
