The guys discuss the Thunderclap vulnerability, try to figure out the insane people behind the Momo Challenge, reminisce about a portable system none of them have, Apex becoming king of the Battle Royale and then get excited for the return of a great baseball movie!
Security specialists claim to have uncovered a flaw in the Thunderbolt connectivity specification that could expose PCs to attack via their USB-C and DisplayPort interfaces. Dubbed ‘Thunderclap’, the vulnerability enables hackers to exploit the privileged direct-memory access (DMA) provided via the Thunderbolt connection to access the targeted device. It gives them direct and unlimited access to a machine’s memory because these ports come with low-level and very privileged direct memory access (DMA), which supplies any malicious peripherals with much more privileges than regular USB devices.
With the first month officially under it’s belt, it seems EA’s strangely timed offering of Apex Legends may just be paying off. It’s broken the record set previously by Fortnite of the fastest time to hit 50 million players, but what does Apex Legends mean long term for EA? Especially with Anthem now out on shelves.
A YouTube video of Peppa Pig going on a picnic with her family begins like any other episode of the popular kids show. But three minutes into the bright, chipper video, a distorted face with bulging eyes appears and a creepy robotic voice begins speaking. “Slice your leg and you’ll never meet me,” the voice says. “Slice your wrists and your parents will never see me.” Another similarly creepy video depicts a slow zoom-in on the character as it sings “Momo is going to kill you.” Recommended site: The Source For Parents
It has been a slow death for the awesome system that was launched in 2011 but on March 2nd, 2019 production lines have officially stopped. Sony themselves quit producing games for the system back in 2015 and ceased all physical media games last year. Some of it’s standout games were:
- Killzone: Mercenary
- Wipeout 2048
- Uncharted: Golden Abyss
- Dragon Quest Builders
- Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
- Little Big Planet
- Ratchet & Clank collection
- Rayman Origins
- Final Fantasy X
- Mortal Kombat
It takes place in 1985 with all the original cast as adults who have kids of their own. They are not leaking any other info at the moment but lets hope we see the beast return!
