Samsung revealed new Galaxy Note phones, a security researcher found vulnerabilities within the Boeing 787, and hackers can get into your phone with only a text message. Here is the information you need to know, in two minutes or less.
Samsung has announced its latest addition to the phone universe: The Galaxy Note 10+ and Note 10. The Note 10+ is a plus-sized 6.8-inch behemoth that can begin at 1,100 USD.

Last year, a security researcher found a bunch of publicly accessible information on a Boeing server. He downloaded it, and it rolled out to be code for components of 787 and 737 jets, together with a part of the 787 code that had multiple serious safety bugs. These vulnerabilities cover components just like the in-flight entertainment system, however probably could be used as a method into safety-critical methods like flight controls and sensors.
At the Black Hat discussion, security researchers lifted the curtain on “interaction-less bugs” in Apple’s iOS system, which might give a hacker access to your phone without you doing anything at all. An attacker might send a specially-crafted text message, and even if you do not open it, the iMessage server will send back particular consumer information, like the content of your SMS messages or pictures.
