Twitter API bug potentially allowed developers to read DMs and private accounts

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018

Earlier today, Twitter sent a message to a large number of users informing them about an API bug. According to the company, it identified a bug on September 10 that potentially allowed direct messages and protected accounts to be read by "Twitter developers who were not authorized to receive them."

Twitter went into more detail about the bug on its Developer Blog, explaining that it could have allowed data to be sent to the wrong developer's webhook URL (the mechanism that some Twitter applications use to retrieve data).

Google details how (fixed) USB security flaws compromise Android user data

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

In this modern digital world, we’re often most concerned with remote hacks and scams when it comes to device security — but physical access to a device can provide a major opportunity to a targeted attacker. That's the case with a set of (thankfully fixed) vulnerabilities found by Google's Project Zero team, which require access to a device's USB port. If you're a security buff, you might remember this from the September 2018 security patch, noted briefly as an issue that could "enable a local attacker to bypass user interaction requirements to gain access to additional permissions."

In other words, all the attacker has to do is plug a USB stick into your phone and, bam, they're in.

2016 Pixel XL owners experiencing issues with quick chargers after Android Pie update

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Over the past few weeks, some owners of the 2016 Pixel XL have reported problems using quick chargers on Android P. For most of that time, Android P was still in beta, so bugs were to be expected. Unfortunately, issues with quick charging are still present in the final 9.0 release.

As you may already know, all Pixel phones use USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) for quick charging. Any plug/cable/computer/battery certified for USB-PD should charge the phone at a rate of 5V/3A, and Android will show a 'Charging rapidly' message on the lock screen.

[Update: Next update will fix] Some OnePlus 6 displays flicker in bright light with adaptive brightness enabled

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed my own OnePlus 6 was having a bit of trouble when I was outdoors. If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels.

[Update: Pulled] Latest Google app beta (v8.14.12) repeatedly crashing for many

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Developer previews aren't always the most stable, and they aren't meant to be. They are the process by which a stable is created. Because of that, sometimes it's possible to run into a few issues when using them, and it appears many are seeing a repeated force close problem with the latest version of the Google app beta (v8.14.12) on Android P.

Developer previews aren't always the most stable, and they aren't meant to be. They are the process by which a stable is created. Because of that, sometimes it's possible to run into a few issues when using them, and it appears many are running a repeated force close problem with the latest version of the Google app beta (v8.14.12) on Android P.

The offending update started rolling out yesterday, and it isn't a simple case of having sideloaded the wrong version.

If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels. I pushed it out of my mind, assuming I imagined it, but according to reports compiled together by the folks at PiunikaWeb, I'm not alone.

Fix for glitchy Google Maps visuals in Android Auto rolling out now

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Back in April, users reported to Google that their Android Auto head units were showing weird, glitchy visuals under some circumstances. A fix was promised for sometime in June, but the month came and went with no resolution. Google has acknowledged this, though, and says a fix is rolling out now.

The rollout is coming in stages as part of a Google Play Services update and should be complete in "a few more weeks." The team doesn't seem entirely sure they've nailed down the problem, though, asking users to provide further information if the problem persists past the rollout window.

[Update: Fix now available] Google Play Store app licensing bug is putting developers in a horrible spot

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Creating (and maintaining) a great app can require a ton of work, so we're happy to compensate developers for all that effort by shelling over a few bucks for their content in the Play Store. But while many app-makers rely on this income stream, a new bug that's popped up in a recent Play Store update threatens to toss a wrench in the works, interfering with how apps can verify paid licenses.
