Leakage of Origin data

, , Comment Closed

US companies are not adequately protected against hacker attacks, which makes practically every moment we hear another intrusion that results in theft of customer data. This time the victim of this attack can fall to players using the platform, which probably hackers hacked.

A potential hacker reported that a password reset on his Origin account was received at the end of last week. Having investigated the case, it turned out that about 600 users of this digital platform had leaked to the network, including email addresses, passwords, birthdays, and a list of their games. From what we know so far, data from accounts whose names begin with letters A through F. have leaked.

Electronic Arts has already issued a statement in which it assures that user safety is a priority for the company. He also claims that the user base is well protected and has the potential to break into it.

It is difficult to say whether the security of the EA servers has been compromised, or whether it has broken into one of its partners. However, this is not the first such case. In December last year, Reddit reported unauthorized purchases and other changes related to Origin accounts. The publisher argued at the time that after the investigation, he found no evidence that could indicate a burglary.…

So LG welcomes visitors to the IFA 2016 Berlin

, , Comment Closed

At the biggest consumer electronics trade fair in Europe visitors will be attracted by hundreds of exhibitors, both small and giants. It is very likely that LG will make the biggest “first impression” of guests entering one of the exhibition halls.

Entering Hall 18 will pass through a tunnel whose walls are lined with 216 curved OLED screens measuring 55 inches each, capable of displaying nearly half a billion pixels. The installation is 5 m high, 7.4 m wide and 15 m long and features a specially prepared for this occasion, lasting about 3 minutes, a clip from “From Black to Black”, which consists of gorgeous shots of the northern lights over Iceland, flowing Jellyfish or whale and space.

14 cameras were used to prepare the video, so as the creators say, give the smallest detail and move as accurately as possible.

The tunnel was built by combining ultra-thin, extremely flexible and lightweight OLED screens, which, thanks to its innovative design, can be bent in any way to create concave or convex forms while preserving image quality. What’s more, thanks to the use of organic LEDs, each pixel of the OLED screen is a light source, depending on the scene displayed, may turn on or off.

“This year has been 50 years since LG produced its first TV. The tunnel presented at the IFA was designed to celebrate this milestone as another milestone – the era of OLED TVs, “says Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company. “Guests of our stand offer unprecedented experiences connected with the revolutionary possibilities of mapping reality. We believe that OLED screens will delight the IFA participants by presenting infinitely deep black and extremely contrasting and realistic colors, regardless of angle of view. “…

Radio waves will help to detect cosmic trash

, , Comment Closed

The garbage that surrounds our planet over the years pose an increasing threat, so researchers are working on ways to detect and track them. One of the interesting projects for the detection of space waste is the use of radio waves emitted by the radio.

In Australia a whole new Murchison Widefield Array was launched a few months ago to detect space objects smaller than 100 cm in diameter that could threaten orbiting satellites.

A network consisting of 2048 dipole double polarized antennas has been set up to receive waves reflected by objects that are up to a thousand kilometers away. The entire complex utilizes the FM waves broadcast by the world’s broadcasters, leaving the earthly atmosphere. The signal bounces off the larger trash and returns to Earth, where the radio telescope receives it.

This way, the exact position of the larger garbage is fixed and then tracked. This is very important because such cosmic waste can have a lot of mass and when they fall to the surface of our planet, they can do damage.…
