Apple Safari browser leaked Google account information

  Fraud prevention service provider FingerprintJS recently found that a vulnerability in Apple’s browser Safari 15 could reveal users’ browsing activity and possibly some personal information on Google accounts. The vulnerability stems from Apple’s IndexedDB, an application programming interface (API) that stores data on the browser.
  FingerprintJS claims that IndexedDB adheres to the same-origin policy, which restricts one source from interacting with data collected by other sources. Essentially, only the website that generates the data can access it.
  For example, if you open an email account in one tab and then open a malicious web page in another tab, the same-origin policy prevents the malicious page from viewing and interfering with the user’s email. FingerprintJS found that Apple’s implementation of the IndexedDB API in Safari 15 actually violated the same-origin policy. When a website interacts with a database in Safari, a new (empty) database with the same name is created in all other active frames, tabs, and windows in the same browser session.
  This means that other websites can see other database names created by users on different websites, which may contain details specific to their identity. When a user browses websites that require a Google account, such as YouTube, Google Calendar, and Google Keep, a database is generated with the user’s unique Google account ID in the name. This ID allows Google to access a user’s public information, such as their profile, which the Safari flaw could have exposed to other websites.

  At the Winter Davos Forum, issues such as global anti-epidemic and vaccine equity are key topics for discussion. While the Omicron variant is highly contagious, studies have shown that patients infected with this strain are less likely to become severely ill than other strains, raising hopes that Omicron may accelerate The end of the corona pandemic.
  Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has optimistically predicted that life may soon return to normal. However, Fauci’s latest statement poured cold water on such views, saying it was an open question whether Omicron would bring about the hoped-for situation. Even if Omicron does become the last mutated strain of COVID-19, it’s unlikely to spell the complete end of the virus. Instead, it will continue to exist in society as an “endemic”.
  According to Fauci, endemic disease means that the virus still exists, but its degree of contagion will not disrupt society. At this stage, public health measures such as masks will no longer be required, and society can return to a certain degree of normalcy before the outbreak of the new crown epidemic. state.
  Fauci spoke with a panel of public health experts who agreed that Omicron will be the dominant strain globally in 2022, though they were divided on whether it would be the last. Experts warn that it is too early to say that Covid-19 will turn endemic, and the possibility of a new strain of the virus remains high, although it may not be as severe, but prepare for the worst still important.

  Elon Musk, chief executive of electric car maker Tesla and SpaceX, said on Jan. 18 that the expansion of the sun could wipe out all species on Earth, including humans. This fate can only be avoided by making life multi-planetary. The Cornell University website article responded: “When the sun runs out of combustible hydrogen, it does continue to expand and gradually engulf the Earth.”
  Musk’s article is a response to the “Sixth Largest Extinction: Fact, Fiction or Speculation? The proactive response to the paper. Robert Cowie, one of the authors of the paper, said there have been five mass extinction events on Earth so far, and the sixth has already begun.
  While the first five mass extinctions were caused by extreme natural phenomena, the ongoing mass extinction event is purely human, Cowie said. The paper’s data suggest that Earth may have lost 260,000 species since 1500, including invertebrates such as snails and slugs. Colleagues suggest that despite the limited scope of conservation efforts, continued efforts are needed and biodiversity must be documented.

  On January 17, the submarine volcano in the South Pacific island country Tonga erupted for the third time in four days. The eruption two days ago had a volcanic eruption index (VEI) close to level 6, with a mushroom cloud as high as 25 kilometers and a diameter of nearly 500 kilometers. It was the largest volcanic eruption in nearly 30 years.
  From the satellite, we can see the concentric circles formed by the shock wave of the volcanic eruption, which spread to half the earth at a speed close to the speed of sound (1030km/h). The eruption caused the small island landmass of the crater to disappear partially.
  Although Tonga is far away from our country, the “parasol” effect caused by the volcano may still have an impact on us. Intense volcanic eruptions send large amounts of volcanic ash into the stratosphere more than 10 kilometers above the ground. The aerosols formed by these volcanic ash can float in the air for months or even years, and they can block the sun like umbrellas and cause global temperatures. decline. Species have gone extinct more than once in history due to volcanic eruptions.
  Some experts believe that the level of the Tonga volcanic eruption is not high enough, and the impact on the temperature should be small. But some experts believe that this volcanic eruption may push the La Niña to El Niño.

  Most animals have camouflage to avoid predators or hunt. The strong contrasting colors of giant pandas are irrelevant to camouflage.
  This is because the giant panda does not need to avoid humans, it only needs to avoid its own natural enemies. There are very few natural enemies in the living environment of giant pandas now, but the natural enemies of giant pandas in history include Bengal tigers, leopards, jackals and other cats and canines.
  Cats and dogs have only 2 types of cone cells in the retina and are colorblind. A giant panda that is eye-catching in 3-color human vision is actually not conspicuous in the eyes of a color-blind dog. According to the visual model of cats and dogs, the researchers changed the color of the wild photos of giant pandas.
  The results show that in the eyes of predators, the outline of the giant panda 55 meters away will no longer be clear. Compared with other masters of camouflage, the hiding ability of giant pandas is not bad at all between jerboa and sea crabs.
