三星指纹传感爆出重大漏洞

 

三星证实S10和Note 10智能手机上创新的屏下指纹阅读器存在问题,三天后该公司向数百万用户发出了更严肃的警告。

问题是:使用凝胶膜以后,好像任何指纹都能解锁手机。

 

 

 

外媒报道

The issue is so serious, that Samsung has told owners who use any front screen covers to refrain from using the cover until your device has been updated with a new software patch.

这个问题太过严重,三星公司已经通知前屏幕贴膜的用户“手机更新了新的软件补丁之才能贴膜”。

The new warning from Samsung goes even further though, telling users who have deployed covers to replace the fingerprints stored on their devices.

三星还发出了进一步的警告,告诉用户揭掉屏幕膜之后要换掉手机里储存的指纹。

Samsung had already said it was aware of the case of the malfunctioning fingerprint recognition and will soon issue a software patch.

三星公司称“已知道指纹识别故障问题,会尽快发布软件补丁”。

Once updated, the company says, scan your fingerprint in its entirety, so that all portions of your fingerprint, including the center and corners have been fully scanned.

该公司说:“软件更新后要完整扫描指纹,包括指纹中心和边缘在内的整个指纹都要扫描”。

Basically, users are advised to replace all the biometric data on the device.

主要是建议用户替换掉手机内所有生物特征数据。

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

无人机送快递开始了

 

Alphabet(谷歌重组后的母公司)拥有的无人机快递公司Wing开始为美国消费者服务了,这周早些时候已成为第一个让美国提前开始此项服务的无人机快递公司。

 

 

 

外媒报道

Wing is working with FedEx Express and Walgreens on this pilot, and their first customers are Michael and Kelly Collver, who will get a cough and cold pack, which includes Tylenol, cough drops, facial tissues, Emergen-C and bottled water (do people who have colds need bottled water?)。

Wing的这一项目与联邦快递和沃尔格林公司合作,第一批顾客是Michael和Kelly Collver,他们将得到“咳嗽和感冒包裹”,包括泰诺、止咳药、面巾纸、Emergen-C和瓶装水(感冒的人需要瓶装水吗?)

The Collvers are receiving their package in Christianburg, Va。, which is where Wing and Walgreens will run this inaugural pilot of the drone delivery service。

Collver一家人将在弗吉尼亚州Christianburg收到包裹,也是Wing和沃尔格林公司无人机快递服务的首个试点地区。

Walgreens gets a noteworthy credit in the bargain, becoming the first U.S. retailer to do a store-to-customer doorstep delivery via drone, while FedEx will be the first logistics provider to deliver an e-commerce drone delivery with a separate shipment.

这次合作中沃尔格林公司获得了显著的好评,成为美国第一个通过无人机送货上门的零售商,联邦快递将成为第一个单独用无人机为电商送快递的物流供应商。

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

加拿大总理特鲁多连任了

 

根据加拿大广播公司CBC的统计结果,加拿大总理贾斯廷·特鲁多的自由党赢得了2019年的加拿大联邦大选。

虽然自由党失去了议会席位,仅控制多个席位,而不是绝对多数席位,但仍然足以控制政府。

 

 

 

外媒报道

This was an especially bitter campaign in Canada。 Trudeau’s government had been rocked by two serious scandals, one involving photos of the prime minister in blackface and brownface, the other involving political interference with a federal prosecution。

这是加拿大尤为激烈的一场竞选,特鲁多的政府受到两个严重丑闻影响,一个是总理黑脸和棕脸的照片,另一个是对联邦起诉的政治干涉。

His campaign went negative - attacking Andrew Scheer, the leader of the opposition Conservative party, as unacceptably conservative on social and economic issues - to scare the generally progressive Canadian electorate into sticking with them。

他的竞选不顺,他攻击反对党保守党的领袖安德鲁·谢尔,称其在社会和经济问题上过于保守,以此来吓唬普遍进步的加拿大选民以获取他们的支持。

Apparently, it worked. While Liberal power in Parliament is diminished, it’s still a win for the embattled prime minister. And thanks to the way that Canada’s system works, Canadian policy actually could end up being pushed to the left.

显然这个方法奏效了。虽然自由党在议会的权利被削弱了,但陷入困境的总理仍然胜利了。加拿大的体制导致加拿大的政策最终可能会被推向左翼。



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

新的基因编辑技术诞生

 

美国科学家已研发出强大的新的基因组编辑系统,显著提高目前CRISPR标准的精度和效率。

虽然CRISPR-Cas9是革命性的医疗技术,为编辑包括与疾病相关的变异在内的遗传密码奠定了现代基础,但一直存在对其潜在的不精确性的担忧。

而现在这项新技术终于带来了突破。

 

  

 

外媒报道

Specifically, many fear that CRISPR-Cas9 editing carries the potential to introduce errors in the form of uncontrolled insertions and deletions in genetic code, called indels。

具体来说就是很多人害怕CRISPR-Cas9编辑有可能在被称为索引的遗传密码中不受控制的插入和删除信息从而导致错误。

Researchers say the new system, dubbed 'prime editing' by its inventors at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University, could change the game thanks to a new protein that enables high-precision edits of genetic targets.

研究人员说被麻省理工学院和哈佛大学的布罗德研究所的发明者称为“先导编辑”的这一新系统能改变基因,有一种新型蛋白质使研究人员可以对目标基因进行高精度编辑。

“A major aspiration in the molecular life sciences is the ability to precisely make any change to the genome in any location,” says genome biologist David Liu from the the Broad Institute.

布罗德研究所的基因组生物学家David Liu说:“分子生命科学的一个主要目标是能精确改变任何位置的基因组。”
