OnePlus 6 Security Flaw Fix Is On Its Way

Security Flaw Fix For OnePlus 6 Is On Its Way

Security researchers discovered a flaw on OnePlus 6 but said a fix is on its way.  They discovered the vulnerability on the OnlePlus 6 lets you bypass the phone’s locked bootloader with any modified boot image.

The company acknowledged the vulnerability and said it will push out a software update to fix the issue.  Physical access to the phone is needed to take advantage of its vulnerability.

The OnePlus 6 Security Flaw

The perfect pixel alternative.  That is the OnePlus 6.  But it features a security that will thankfully be fixed in a software update.

Edge Security LLC president and XDA Developers forum member Jason Donenfeld said the OnePlus 6 features a vulnerability that let him bypass the locked bootloader with any modified boot image.  What is weirder, Donenfeld said, is he did not have to turn on USB debugging.  This is a usual requirement when you mess around with your smartphone.

The Solution To The OnePlus 6 Security Flaw

Despite the security flaw on the OnePlus 6, there is still a good news.  And that it, someone will need physical access to your OnePlus 6 to take advantage of the flaw.  Then they need to plug the phone into a computer, restart the phone into fastboot mode, and transfer any arbitrary or modifies boot image.

But wait, there is more good news.  OnePlus said it is aware of the vulnerability and that they are in contact with Donefeld.  They have also confirmed that a software update will be out shortly to fix the issue.

This is another serious oversight on the part of OnePlus.  They have had issues before involving the Engineer Mode app, the Factory Mode app, and the stolen credit card information.  Hopefully this security flaw on the OnePlus 6 will not do too much damage on the image of the company.  They must roll out the software soon to solve the issue and repair whatever damage the flaw has created.

Bugs That Were Encountered In Fortnite

Bugs Encountered By Fortnite

Fortnite has encountered bugs which may cause the game to crash.  Many Battle Royale players have complained about some bugs they have encountered while playing the game.  These bugs have disappointed them because it affected their performances in the said game.

Fortnite: Battle Royale experienced an explosion of success in the past few months.  This success has made it one of the most popular video games in recent history.  A major reason for the game’s popularity is developer Epic Games’ effort to consistently improve, adjust, and add to the game to keep the experience fresh and fun.

However, despite its popularity, players have been recently disgruntled due to high level of bugs and glitches that currently exists in the game.  Epic has done and shown considerable effort in addressing and fixing the issues.  But is seems that after fixing a set of glitches, another batch pops out.

Players’ Feedback On The Bugs

Players have given their opinion and feedback (and complaints, of course).  Among the complaints are: you cannot mute players while crossplaying; traps may not activate initially when placed; weapons fire before the equip animation is completed when sprinting; and a lot more.

Epic’s Solution To The Bugs

Epic has released new Fortnite update that will fix bugs for the Battle Royale and Save the World modes.  Update v3.5.1 was launched, and the good news was there was no downtime at all.

The update fixes the bug in Battle Royale that could cause the game to crash related to  the new Replay system.  It also fixes a bug that allowed players to fire a weapon before the equip animation completed when sprinting.  Other than that, you can now bind the Building Edit hotkey to keys other than G, which sounds like a nice little tweak.  An issue that broke player’s walking/ sprinting animations if they were firing a Guided Missile while walking/sprinting has also been fixed.
