The Facebook app is secretly recording through iPhone cameras

Published

The behavior that is strange resulted in a flurry of concerns about the undeniable fact that the digital camera may be secretly recording people because they utilize the app. Unlike on Apple’s computers there is no indicator whenever an application is accessing the camera, so it’s easy for an application to take action in secret.

Facebook says the behavior that is strange caused by a bug that was added to the rule by accident and that there is no indication that pictures or videos are being provided for its servers. An enhance is reported by the business has already been submitted to Apple that will remove it.

The potential protection flaw are precluded by a simple fix when you look at the iPhone configurations that keeps Twitter from seeing the digital camera after all in the meantime.

The bug initially found light after users noted that the app would sometimes shift the feed this is certainly whole to the right, included in what looked like a bug. A different sort of display could be seen – which revealed movie from the phone’s integrated digital camera underneath that primary application.

Twitter claimed that it had introduced the behavior as part of an attempt to repair a bug that is various.

“We recently discovered that version 244 of the Facebook iOS app would incorrectly launch in landscape mode,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “In fixing that issue last week in v246 (launched on 8 November) we inadvertently introduced a bug that caused the app to partially navigate to the camera screen adjacent to News Feed when users tapped on photos.

“We have seen no evidence of photos or videos being uploaded due to this bug. We’re submitting the fix for this to Apple today.”

“Triggering this bug activated the camera preview, and once triggered, the preview remained active until you tapped elsewhere in the app. At no point was the preview content stored by the app or uploaded to our servers,” he wrote.

“We’ve confirmed that we didn’t upload anything to FB due to this bug and that the camera didn’t capture anything since it was in preview mode. We’ve submitted a fixed version to the App Store which is already rolling out.”

The problem are fixed in the meantime by revoking Facebook’s use of the digital camera. That is carried out by going into the Settings app and navigating to your Facebook option – clicking that will bring lots up of permissions which have been approved into the app, including the capacity to access the digital camera, which may be switched off by altering the toggle.

That may also imply that Twitter is not a longer in a position to access the digital camera for lots more functions which can be legitimate functions, such as the capacity to capture and upload a picture straight through the app.

“You are cruel,” GMA actress Jennylyn Mercado wrote to her Facebook account just recently, to address everyone who are rejoicing about the ABSCBN shutdown.

According to actress, it is not right– in so many aspects– to be happy about thousands of people losing their jobs and more people losing access on local news especially on the provinces.

She opened her statement by giving her sympathies to all of the media people who are mourning from this sad tragedy. Added the actress, they are not alone in this battle.

“Sa mga lumuha at nawalan, our prayers and hearts are with you. Sa mga taong tuwang tuwa sa mga pangyayari, huwag niyo sana danasin ang lumuha din at mawalan,” she stated.

She then explained why it is not okay to be glad about the incident, when in fact it screams nothing but wrongness in it.

“Hindi ba na tinuruan tayo ng ating mga magulang na maging makatao sa kapwa? Rejoicing because of other people’s sorrow is not only wrong, but inhumane. You are cruel,” she stated.

She continued, “Ang daling sabihin para sa inyo na ‘Law is Law’ pero ang mga pulitiko o may kapangyarihan na lumabag nito ay hindi naman nakaranas ng parusa para sa batas na nilabag nila. If you say that then everyone should be held at the same standard. Huwag muna tayo mag-Mañanita.”

Jennylyn also urged the people not to turn a blind eye on what is happening, especially on the suffering of others.

“No network is perfect, policies can and will be improved. Ang importante ngayon ang mga taong nawalan ng trabaho lalo na at pandemya. Ang daling sabihin na okay lang sa inyo kasi sa tingin ninyo ay hindi kayo naapektuhan. Pero sana kahit saglit ay ilagay ninyo ang sarili sa posisyon nila. Huwag kayo maging manhid sa hirap na nararanasan ng iba,” she said.

Too conclude her post, she stated how the breakdown of the company will not only affect its employers but all of the smaller businesses that depend on it.

“Libo libong tao ang nawalan din ng trabaho. Lahat ay naapektuhan at maapektuhan. Paano na sila?”

Mga scientists, naka diskubre ng isang misteryosong bato na kayang gumalaw mag-isa

Published

Scientists have recently conducted another study to understand the mystery behind the “moving rocks” that was discovered in the Death Valley in 1948.

Despite of all the factors considered, none of these are justified for the mere reason that Death Valley is a triple threat: it’s the hottest, driest, and lowest of the United States’ National Parks.

According to Boredom Therapy, these rocks have kept the scientists and geologists on the edge.

“For more than 70 years, researchers have attempted to figure out why these special rocks are moving by themselves in long journeys across the Racetrack Playa in Death Valley. And finally, they’ve pieced together the mystery.

“Before 2014, no one had personally witnessed the “sailing stones.” In the meantime, plenty had observed thick trails behind the seemingly stationary boulders. No one knew who — or what — was responsible.”

But after they reopened the case study and started considering new factors with the help of thee technology, the people in charge started moving forward.

“To complicate things further, the boulders could remain still for more than a decade before shifting. Eventually, scientists attached GPS trackers to the rocks to try to determine the root of the movement, but it took years for the idea and the technological capabilities to align.”

After they have crossed out the winds, the hailstorm and the algae as possible reason, the scientist have finally concluded the great mystery!

“The rocks themselves were pushed by the ice sheets anywhere from a few seconds to 16 minutes. Once, the group saw rocks 300 yards apart move together for about 200 ft before stopping.” they revealed.

“So, we have seen that even in Death Valley, famous for its heat, floating ice is a powerful force in stone motion,” stated Dr. Richard Norris from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

“Kaillangan ba naming makita yan?” Agot, muling sumagot sa pahayag ng kampo ni Jinkee Pacquiao

Agot Isidro once again clapped back about the luxury bike issue of Jinkee Pacquiao on Twitter. It all started when Jinkee posted on Instagram, showcasing an Hermes and Louis Vuitton bicycle that was gifted by their family’s close friend, Hermie Esguerra.

Agot first tweeted about the incident, claiming it was insensitive and certainly not uncalled for.

“Alam namin na marami kayong pera. At kung ano ang gusto ninyong gawin sa pera na yun, wala kaming pakialam.” she wrote.

“Pero marami rin ang walang trabaho at nagkukumahog humanap ng pera para may pakain sa kanilang pamilya. Puede ba, konting sensitivity man lang?” she added, and then inserted #nouveau as an hashtag.

Nouveau is a French word for new and is mostly used to shorted the term “nouveau riche.” meaning a person newly rich.

Jinkee’s team finally released a statement posted by their family business manager, Arnold L. Vegafria.

On his Instagram post, he straight up called out Agot about the issue.

“What’s your issue, Agot?” he wrote.

“What Jinkee posts on her Instagram page is not for us to judge.” he said.

What she does with her family’s hard-earned money is none of our business, because such bountiful blessings are just the fruit of her husband’s esteemed legacy as an iconic Filipino boxing legend and businessman, and are not stained in any way by graft or corruption.

Jinkee has also worked her way up as a smart and prudent businesswoman with several investments under her good name.

He also reminded Agot that the family have donated a lot to the Filipinos especially during hard times.

“And please be more discerning about your use of the word “nouveau.”

The Pacquiaos have worked hard over the past decades to achieve their current standing in society, and despite their status, they have remained humble, low-key and generous to whoever asks for their help.” he continued.

To which Agot replied,

“sinabi ko naman na wala akong pakialam kung saan ginastos ang kaperahan. i’m sure marami na rin ang natulungan.

“ang sa akin lang, kailangan ba namin makita yan, sa gitna nang paghihirap na dinaranas ng nakararami?

sensitivity ≠ accountability
iba po yun.”

And a follow up post, the actress said, “ah so sa nouveau triggered. hindi sa insensitive. ok, noted po.”
