Apple has paid $75,000 to a hacker for figuring out a number of zero-day vulnerabilities in its software programme, a few of which could possibly be used to hijack the digital camera on a MacBook or an iPhone.
Former Amazon Web Services security engineer Ryan Pickren reportedly discovered seven zero-day vulnerabilities in Safari after he decided to “hammer the browser with obscure corner cases” until it started showing weird behavior, Forbes reported on Friday.

Pickren reported his research fully via the Apple Bug Bounty Programme in mid-December 2019.
“My research uncovered seven bugs,” Pickren said.
Apple fixed three of the security flaws the ones that allowed for camera hijacking in the January 28 Safari 13.0.5 update. The four remaining flaws were not fixed until the Safari 13.1 release on March 24.
“I really enjoyed working with the Apple product security team when reporting these issues, the new bounty programme is absolutely going to help secure products and protect customers. I’m really excited that Apple embraced the help of the security research community,” the report quoted Pickren as saying. (IANS)
Food with high water content is highly prescribed by doctors to stay hydrated during the summers, a season that summons a wave of soaring temperatures, higher than 40-degrees.
A much-loved fruit in India, apples are hydrating heros’ in such a situation. A heatwave can affect human health in a varied manner and to maintain ideal body temperature in this soaring summer, one must remain adequately hydrated, be protected from the sun and maintain hygiene.
Working professionals and people who must step out in summers, are prone to the heatwave impact. Pediatric experts and doctors agree on the benefits of drinking water and eating fruits, especially, apples. ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away’ is true as they are rich in a number of vitamins with great anti-inflammatory benefits and many other essential minerals. Washington Apple Commission spells how apples can prove to be a summer-friendly fruit.
People often don’t realise the danger of exposing themselves to extreme heat. Older adults, young children, and people with chronic illnesses are most at greater risk for serious problems. The nutrition benefits of apples may help not only in avoiding such illnesses but may also protect against many such conditions.
As popular as apples are as a fruit, they are enriched in antioxidants, dietary fibers, vitamins and a range of other nutrients that are greatly beneficial in maintaining good health. The fruit is rich in soluble fibers which may help prevent several health conditions and may lower the risk of major diseases such as heat strokes, diabetes and cancer.
The soluble fiber also promotes weight loss and improves gut health. The prebiotic effects of apples help feed the good bacteria in the gut, thus, improving digestion.
Apples are made of 85 percent water and contain vitamins, fibres and antioxidants. A high fibre content is a particularly beneficial property of apples, as improper digestion is a major health concern in the tropical climatic region. Apples are also enriched in antioxidants that help protect the lungs from oxidative damage and help oxygen flow through the blood.
Make interesting snacks, dessert, beverages and savoury meals with this miraculous fruit during summers.

The OnePlus 5T was available in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Edition, and the OnePlus 6 was available in a Marvel Avengers Edition.
Both of these smartphones were available in limited quantities and in select regions only.
The smartphone maker launched the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, with a new and distinct CMF (colour-material-finish), 10GB RAM and Warp Charge 30 charging technology, to expand the scope of these special editions.
The most recent McLaren Edition device from the OnePlus was OnePlus 7T Pro.
The company recently launched its 8 series smartphones, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Both are powerful as well as expensive and the smartphone maker will have to find a new partner to give that a special twist worth paying more for. (IANS)
