Apple recently updated its security advisories to include three new vulnerabilities that affect iOS, iPadOS, and macOS.

2 — Is Your Data Safe? Even Top-Ranked Android Apps Deceive Users
So, some troubling news has come to light about the safety of Android apps on the Google Play Store.

These labels can apparently be misleading or even completely false, which is definitely cause for concern. It's important for us to be able to trust the information we're given about the apps we download, so this is definitely something we'll want to keep an eye on.
3 — MyloBot Botnet Goes Global: 50K Devices Infected Daily
A new and dangerous botnet called MyloBot is on the loose and spreading rapidly across the globe.

4 — Is Twitter Leaving You Exposed? Only Blue Subscribers Get 2FA via SMS!
Twitter has announced that it will limit SMS-based 2-factor authentication (2FA) to its blue subscribers only. This means that users who rely on SMS-based 2FA to secure their Twitter accounts will need to upgrade to a premium subscription to continue using this feature. Twitter recommends that users switch to app-based 2FA methods, such as Google Authenticator, Authy, or Duo Mobile, which are generally more secure than SMS-based 2FA.
