#iossecurity | #applesecurity | Four New Games Were Added To Apple Arcade, Including The Surprise Release Of Pilgrims

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Surprise! Last night, Apple added four new games to the Apple Arcade service, including the new game, Pilgrims, from Machinarium developer Amanita Design and the early release of The Bradwell Conspiracy.

It seems Pilgrims was a complete surprise, being announced and released all at once. It’s described as a “playful adventure game” where players will have to explore and meet new characters, helping them and learning about their stories. The art style looks lovely. Pilgrims is also now available for PC.

The Bradwell Conspiracy is a first-person puzzle game with a big focus on telling a story. Following a large explosion at the Stonehedge Museum, you are trapped underground in a secret complex. You have to unravel the secrets of this complex and escape with the help of another survivor. This game was planned to release on Oct. 8, but was released a little early on Apple Arcade. It will still be released in a few days for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.

RedOut: Space Assault is a dogfighting game featuring cool-looking spaceships. The game has a full career mode with ship upgrades and various ways to control your starfighter. You can kill the engines to slow your speed, making it easier to navigate a small opening. RedOut: Space Assault is also coming to PC, though no release date is listed on Steam.

Finally, Nightmare Farm is the new game from the developers behind Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector. Nightmare Farm is described as “The story of a painful nightmare spinning in a bright world.” Not entirely sure what that means, but players will have to grow and harvest crops while also preparing meals for visitors to keep them happy.


I’m happy to see Apple adding new games to their service so quickly and these games look good. But I can’t help but feel like this is a terrible way to run a service. The news was buried late Saturday night with no big announcement post, teaser or anything.

Checking out each game’s publishers and developers, only some of them have formally announced the new releases. I assume, over the next few hours and days, more formal announcements and trailers will launch for these games and their Apple Arcade debut. But hopefully, future additions to Apple Arcade will be handled a bit better and not feel so sloppy and poorly done.

Cybersecurity bill to thwart hackers added to big 2016 spending deal

Cybersecurity bill to thwart hackers added to big 2016 spending deal

A cybersecurity bill aimed at thwarting huge hack attacks was slipped at the last minute into a massive $1.1 trillion federal spending bill that Congress is poised to pass this week. Supporters said Wednesday the bill will increase the sharing of cyber threat information between U.S. companies and the government to help keep thieves and foreign spies from stealing Americans’ personal data. But critics said lawmakers have stripped the bill of strong privacy protections and warn that it will lead to more government surveillance of U.S. citizens. “It’s a disingenuous attempt to quietly expand the U.S. government’s surveillance programs,” said Evan Greer, campaign director of Fight for the Future, a non-profit group that advocates for the rights of Internet users.”It will inevitably lead to law enforcement agencies using the data they collect from companies through this program to investigate, prosecute, and incarcerate more people, deepening injustices in our society while failing to improve security.” The Financial Services Roundtable said the cybersecurity bill, which Congress has been trying to pass for three years, is a crucial step forward in protecting American consumers and businesses from devastating cyber attacks. “This cyber bill is a ‘team America’ approach that will significantly improve efforts to fight cyber criminals and better protect consumer data and intellectual property,” said FSR President and CEO Tim Pawlenty.

Facebook added Free Voice Calling Feature to its Messenger App

Have you noticed a blue color “Free Voice Call” icon that appears next to your Facebook contacts in the iOS and Android Facebook Messenger app?Yes, Facebook has updated their Messenger app that includes the ability to make free voice calls to your online pals and now Facebook users can simply tap the phone icon to call their friends.FACEBOOK DITCH WHATSAPP OVER CALLING FEATUREWhatsApp was reportedly developing voice call feature since last year and when it was acquired by Facebook for $19 billion in February, users estimated that Facebook will add Internet calling feature to Whatsapp soon, rather than to its own Facebook Messenger.However, the WhatsApp VoIP calling is still to come and is expected to launch the update with the feature in the coming weeks, but sadly before that Facebook may leave other popular free calling apps, such as Viber, Line, Google’s Hangout, Skype behind.

 

USERS’ PRIVACY AT RISK, AS NO ENCRYPTION

As expected, Facebook Calling service is not Encrypted at all and efforts of NSA and Edward Snowden’s revelations realize all of us that there is no such thing as ‘Privacy’.

If recent reports are to be believed, NSA’s spying powers are vast and they could once again put their special Hacking Units on this new assignment to Intercept your Facebook’s Internet voice calls.

 

Free apps are Good, and Cost you nothing other than collecting your mass information. Big companies are using free Smartphone apps as a sweet weapon to allow them to spy on users’ text messages, intercept calls and even track their location.

 

From last eight months, the whole Internet is learning about encryption technologies, privacy tools and countermeasures to beat spying eyes, but using one ‘Free Chocolate Donut’ like app would make your efforts ‘all in vain’!

The voice-calling feature on Facebook Messenger was first arrived for iOS platform in January 2013 and then slowly rolled out to the users in US, UK and Canada.

These are some nice features Facebook introduced in the messaging app, including the ability to create group chats within the app and message forwarding feature.

The company rolled out the latest Facebook Messenger 4.0 update and is now available for free download in the Google Playstore. However, the Windows Phone version has not yet been updated with calling feature.
