To accompany the coming week, several good news. First, we know a lot more about the Galaxy S22 datasheet. Then the next MIUI update promises to further improve the performance of Xiaomi smartphones. We also summarize the story of the Steam flaw which allowed its wallet to be fed to infinity and the end of Android Auto on the next version of the OS.

Many French people without a health pass for a weekend

Last weekend, the Pro-Santé Connect platform, used by health professionals to enter valid certificates for the health pass, encountered a technical problem that was reflected in TousAntiCovid. Concretely, the application was unable for several hours to import the precious QR Code, even though the users met the necessary conditions. The problem would have been at the level of “Very important flows, especially Friday afternoon because of the crossover between departures on vacation for people who have to take trains, planes or other, and because of activities linked to the weekend”. Increase server capacity therefore seems to be a good solution.

Meanwhile, you could fill your Steam wallet at will

Still, you would have had to be aware of the flaw that allowed this little sleight of hand. Discovered by the user drbrix, it was quickly classified as critical, so much so that it only took Valve a day to deploy a fix. Indeed, it was enough to modify the email address of your Steam account by adding the mention “amount100”, then intercept the POST request occurring after a payment using the Smart2Pay method. “I think the impact is pretty obvious, a hacker can generate money and smash the Steam market, sell cheap game keys, etc. “, explained drbrix. He touched $ 7,500 for his report.

Android Auto will no longer exist on Android 12

It’s official, Google Assistant’s Driving Mode will definitely replace Android Auto during the next major operating system update. If the application will remain well on older versions of the OS, Google intends to accelerate the transition to its other solution. From Android 12, the Driving mode of Google Assistant will be the integrated mobile driving experience ”, commented the Mountain View firm. A novelty that is ultimately logical, since the Assistant offers the same functions during the driving phases.
