    A cyber-security firm in an interesting revelation has discovered a flaw in WhatsApp that allows scammers to alter the content or change the identity of the sender of a previously delivered message. Hackers can create a hacked version of the WhatsApp and change the “quote” to give an impression that someone sent a message they did not actually send.  WhatsApp acknowledged that anyone can manipulate the Quote feature, but the company didn't agree on as a flaw. According to the research firm, the vulnerability so far allows for three possible attacks; Changing a reply from someone, Quoting a message in a reply to a group conversation to make it appears as if it came from a person who is not even part of the group, and finally, Sending a message to a member of a group that pretends to be a group message but is in fact only sent to this member, but the member’s response will be sent to the entire group. However, WhatsApp said that the system was working as intended since the trade-off to prevent such a deception by verifying every message on the platform would create an enormous privacy risk or bog down the service. it also ensured that it worked to ...

    Sony might be preparing to launch new smartphones at the IFA on August 31st. Looking at the UAProfs user-agent profiles, the two phones come with model numbers  H84XX (H8416) and the second is the H94XX (H9436, H9493).  Going by the previous model numbers, the Xperia XZ2 Premium had model number H81XX, the Xperia XZ2 had H82XX, and the Xperia XZ2 Compact had H83XX. So, it is likely the H84XX might be another flagship device; the XZ3. As for the second model, we haven't a Sony model in the past with a similar model number, so it a bit difficult to judge the series. However, both devices will sport an FHD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels). Unfortunately, that is where all the good stuff end, so it might be a while before we see any further details on the upcoming Sony flagships. Source 1, 2, 3 | Via
