Apple brings new update of iOS 14 for iPhone users. Version of this new software update is iOS 14.2. They have also come up with important updates for Apple Watch, iPad and MacBook. In these updates, they have basically strengthened their security system by eliminating the problem of three ‘zero-day vulnerabilities’. If you are an Apple device user, you should update the system now.

Google’s Project-Zero security team detects security issues on Apple’s iOS 14 platform. They informed Apple about this. Apple then proceeded to fix all these problems. Their recent software update is a result of that.

Along with the iPhone, the Sixth Generation iPod, iPad Mini, iPad Air and other Apple Watch also had the above vulnerabilities. Those who have this problem need to install the latest software update on their device. Older iPhone users, on the other hand, can use iOS 12.4.9. Much of this security problem has been addressed there. In addition, the latest updates such as iPad OS 14.2, Watch OS 5.3.9, Watch OS 8.2.9, Watch OS 8.1, etc., can get rid of this security problem.

Google’s Project-Zero security team basically identified three problems. The codenames are CVE-2020-27930, CVE-2020-27950 and CVE-2020-27932. Through these three security vulnerabilities, various malicious attackers and malware can overwhelm our Apple device. IOS 14.2 and other recent updates are expected to improve the security of our devices.

Police arrested 8 people with fake Xiaomi products worth Tk 33 lakh

We rely more on the offline market than online to buy smartphones or other mobile related accessories. But the scattering of counterfeit products in the local market proved once again. Recently, a cycle of selling fake Xiaomi products has been caught in Bangalore and Chennai. A total of Tk 33.2 lakh worth of fake products were found from them. Police have arrested a total of eight people in the ring, who had around 3,000 “unauthorized” products.

An official statement was issued by Xiaomi shortly after the arrest. According to the statement, all these counterfeit products included mobile back covers, headphones, power banks, chargers, earphones, etc. Defendants testified that they had been in the business for a long time and had already sold many unauthorized products.

According to Xiaomi, they found out about the scam a few months ago and lodged a complaint with the local police station. Police conducted raids at various places throughout October and November. From there, counterfeit products were confiscated from various reputed shops. The products were received from four vendors in Chennai and three in Bangalore.

By the way, this is the first time that Xiaomi’s fake product has not been found in the market. Last year, a cycle of counterfeit Mi products was also caught in Delhi. A complaint was first lodged at the Corolla Bagh police station. A search was then conducted in the Gaffar Market area. 2,000 counterfeit products worth about Rs 13 lakh were seized from the operation last year. Some of these products were not officially launched in India.

How to recognize Xiaomi’s counterfeit products?

1. The packaging quality of the counterfeit product is very different from the original product. So you can look at the original packaging from Mi Home or Mi Store to identify the real-fake.

2. Shaomi’s product comes with a security code that can be checked from Mi.com. You can check these codes from the website to beware of counterfeit products.

3. Another easy way to identify counterfeit products is to check the logo. The logo of the counterfeit product must be different from the original. So be sure to check the Mi India logo when buying Mi products.

4. The Mi Fit app will have compatibility with fitness products like the Mi Band. This is also a way to identify the real product.

Therefore, keeping these things in mind can save you from buying counterfeit products. Xiaomi is also very active in protecting customers from counterfeit products. Besides, if the customer is also aware, then the sale of such fake products will stop.
