Google Pixel vulnerability allows bad actors to undo Markup screenshot edits and redactions
When Google began rolling out Android's March security patch earlier this week, the company addressed a "High" severity vulnerability involving the Pixel's Markup screenshot tool. Over the weekend, Simon Aarons and David Buchanan, the reverse engineers who discovered CVE-2023-21036, shared more information about the security flaw, revealing Pixel users are still at risk of their older images being compromised due to the nature of Google's oversight.

In short, the "aCropalypse" flaw allowed someone to take a PNG screenshot cropped in Markup and undo at least some of the edits in the image. It's easy to imagine scenarios where a bad actor could abuse that capability. For instance, if a Pixel owner used Markup to redact an image that included sensitive information about themselves, someone could exploit the flaw to reveal that information. You can find the technical details on Buchanan's blog.

Google Pixel Buds Pro are back on sale for $145
Android users have a lot of solid wireless earbuds to choose from, but the best are Google's own Pixel Buds Pro. Now, you can get the flagship buds for $55 less than usual at Wellbots when you use the code ENGTGOOGLE at checkout. That'll bring them down to $145, which is a return to the lowest price we've seen.

Google debuted these wireless earbuds last year after and they are far-and-away better than its first attempt at a pair of higher-end buds. Their key features are ones that will make them a super convenient choice for those with Android phones. In the buds' companion app, you can tweak things like sound modes, touch controls and Google Assistant features, and Pixel phone users will be able to access some controls directly from their Bluetooth menu. The Pixel Buds Pro also support automatic switching between Android devices, which will make it easier to use them with many of your gadgets.

The Morning After: TikTok's parent company reportedly under FBI investigation
In December, ByteDance confirmed it fired four employees who used TikTok to spy on the locations of two journalists. Now, Forbes reports the FBI and the Department of Justice have been investigating the incident. This investigation couldn't come at a worse time, as ByteDance faces mounting pressure to sell its stake in TikTok.

Critics in Congress have previously raised questions about the app's surveillance tactics, particularly in light of ByteDance's acknowledgment that employees had inappropriately accessed US user data. "We have strongly condemned the actions of the individuals found to have been involved, and they are no longer employed at ByteDance," a spokesperson said. "Our internal investigation is still ongoing, and we will cooperate with any official investigations when brought to us."

The incident late last year involved employees accessing the data of several TikTok users in the US, including journalists, to locate the sources of leaks. Forbes reported ByteDance tracked three of its reporters who previously worked for BuzzFeed News. These publications have all run reports on TikTok, with many focusing on alleged ties to the Chinese government.
