Twitter says vulnerability could have exposed direct messages for Android users
A security vulnerability in Twitter for Android could have allowed attackers to access some users' direct messages, the company has disclosed.Twitter on Wednesday said it has fixed a vulnerability in the Android app that for some users "could allow an attacker, through a malicious app installed on your device, to access private Twitter data on your device (like direct messages), by working around Android system permissions that protect against this." This was "related to an underlying Android OS security issue" on Android OS versions 8 and 9, the company said. Twitter said it believes 96 percent of Android users have a patch protecting them from the vulnerability, and it doesn't have evidence that attackers actually exploited the flaw, but the company adds it "can't be completely sure" of that. It's sending notifications to the users who may have been affected, requiring them to update the Android app, and promising to identify "changes to our processes to better guard against issues like this."This disclosure from Twitter comes after the company last month grappled with a massive hack, in which high-profile accounts including those belonging to former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden were taken over to promote a Bitcoin scam. The company said that 130 accounts were targeted, and the attackers accessed direct messages on "up to 36" of them, including that of an elected official in the Netherlands.

Microsoft, Samsung show how you'll pin Android apps to your Windows taskbar
Microsoft continues to forge closer ties between Windows and Samsung products. The company announced Wednesday that users who pair Windows' Your Phone app with a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will be able to pin one or more Android apps to their Windows taskbar.

Your Phone users will be able to interact with multiple Android apps via the Your Phone app—up to three, Microsoft showed off at the Samsung Unpacked virtual event. Even better, via a persistent virtual connection between phone and PC, you'll be able to pin those Android apps to your PC's taskbar, beginning in November.

Samsung and Microsoft also showed off additional capabilities that bring the two companies closer together. For example, Samsung Notes will be able to integrate with the Windows' OneNote app, allowing you to jot down a note on your phone and later combine it with text you entered from your PC. Microsoft has written a version of the Outlook mobile app to run on Galaxy smartwatches, including the new Galaxy Watch 3. Finally, Microsoft is writing a version of its Game Pass app for the Samsung Galaxy app store. New Samsung Galaxy buyers will have the option of buying a three-month Game Pass subscription, bundled with the Power A MOGA XP5-X Plus Bluetooth Controller that Microsoft announced on Tuesday.

Is Apple's new 27-inch iMac a good fit for business?
Apple has introduced what may be the penultimate 27-inch iMac configuration powered by an Intel processor, but is this a good fit for your business?

The Apple Silicon transition thing Enterprise purchasers shouldn't be put off that Apple intends migrating its Macs to use of Apple Silicon because, at present at least, they know what they are getting with Intel-based kit and have been promised support for Macs based on those processors for "years to come". While that's a slightly opaque commitment, it should cover standard enterprise Mac usage cycles.

In other words, counter-intuitive as this may sound to Mac users focused on the new, the bright and the shiny, these iMacs may make a better investment than the first-generation Apple Silicon Macs, simply because you know what you're getting and existing software and services should perform fine on these new Macs.
