SpaceX Nasa Mission

SpaceX makes history with first-ever human rocket launch for NASA, becoming the first company to send humans to orbit on a commercial spaceship. The Falcon 9 rocket’s liftoff from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 3:22 p.m. ET marked a feat that Americans hadn’t been able to do since NASA retired the space shuttles in 2011: sending astronauts into orbit from a U.S. launch pad rather than relying on the Russians. NASA asked people to stay home & watch the launch online or on TV and more than 10 million were watching via NASA & SpaceX at the peak. This whole flight serves as an initial demonstration of the Crew Dragon’s capabilities with an actual crew aboard. If the mission is successful, yet another Crew Dragon will carry 4 different astronauts to the space station weeks after Doug Hurley & Bob Behnken return. Having the Crew Dragon would free NASA from having to pay the Russians upwards of $80 million a seat for rides to and from the space station, which is the whole point of the commercial crew program.

#AppleBug

Sign in with Apple
 
Indian developer earns ₹75 lakh for finding "Sign in with Apple" bug

A 27-year-old Indian security researcher Bhavuk Jain has grabbed $100,000 (over ₹75.5 lakh) from Apple for discovering a now-patched Zero Day vulnerability in the Sign in with Apple account authentication. The Zero Day vulnerability could have allowed a hacker to break into an Apple user's account who log into third-party apps like like Dropbox, Spotify, Airbnb and Giphy (now acquired by Facebook) and more. "This bug could have resulted in a full account takeover of user accounts on that third party application irrespective of a victim having a valid Apple ID or not. For this vulnerability, I was paid $100,000 by Apple under their Apple Security Bounty programme" Jain said.

#ChinaApps

5 million downloads of Remove China Apps
 
5 million+ downloads for "Remove China Apps" app in playstore in just 15 days

In the midst of Covid19, a new app called “Remove China Apps” emerged on the Google Play Store on May 17. The app helps identify and remove apps made in China from your Android smartphones and in a matter of two weeks, has become the number one free app on the Google Play Store in India. Remove China Apps now has over 5 million downloads, most of them from India. The app itself is made by an Jaipur-based Indian startup named OneTouch AppLabs. However, it fails to detect PUBG Mobile, an app developed by China-based Tencent Games & pre-installed apps on Chinese smartphones.
