Firefox beats Edge with swift response to massive browser security hole

Archibald observed that “Firefox handled this brilliantly,” – within three hours the bug had been confirmed, and Mozilla had looked into other potential similar leaks. Eventually, after some chasing, Microsoft’s security team informed Archibald that they were indeed developing a fix, but gave no further details. More waiting, and further chasing on the bug bounty – which Archibald wanted to donate to charity – ensued. If Archibald’s experience is anything to go by, there’s certainly some work to

Valve says it’s ‘really easy’ to spot developers manipulating reviews, bans them ‘all the time’

Valve bans developers manipulating reviews "all the time", and the practice is "really easy to spot", according to Tom Giardino, who works on the Steam Business team. Developers could illegally buy hundreds of copies of their own game "through shills" and then artificially boost its review score, he said on Twitter. In all products/stores (not just Steam), review scores cannot be taken seriously without some heavy duty verification they are not shills." In response, Giardino said that not only i

Sony’s response to Fortnite controversy is embarrassing

Here‘s what happened: Accounts that have been played on the Nintendo Switch likewise seem to be locked out of the PlayStation 4. Sony never warned players that they could be locked out of using their accounts on future consoles due to playing Fortnite on the PlayStation 4. ”We also offer Fortnite cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for Fortnite fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms,” Sony stated. Nintendo has told Polygon th

When I asked about Rage 2’s worst character, I got an unexpected response

The villainous foot soldiers were mutants, many with facial wounds that looked an awful lot like my own birth defect: a full cleft lip and palate. But with a little extra time left in my interview with id Software studio director Tim Willits, I asked why the cleft lip and palate imagery made the cut from Rage to Rage 2. It makes me a little uncomfortable when it’s always the bad guys that have the upper lip and nose removed, effectively. But we do have some — the heroes in Rage 2 are not as pret

Anthem is a clear response to Destiny 2’s mistakes, but EA must accept this game belongs to its players

Anthem, the upcoming, Destiny-baiting, shared-world shooter from Mass Effect and Dragon Age studio BioWare, made a convincing showing at EA's E3 2018 press conference. To a close industry follower or long-time Destiny player - and I am indeed both - it was clear what was being said. "We know how Destiny 2 messed up (Star Wars Battlefront, too), and we're not going to do any of it." The simple fact is that once BioWare releases Anthem into the wild, Anthem is no longer simply BioWare's game. From

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 gets a free content update

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 just got a sizable, and free, content update that brings mod support to the game, plus a bunch of new cosmetics and a new challenge mode delivering loot prizes. The challenge mode is called Okri’s Challenges, which is now accessed through a book inside the keep that had previously just been a background decoration. Vermintide 2’s loot chests can’t be bought for real money; we found the system quite appealing when we played it back in March. Also in response to the communi

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Glitch Makes Players Spend Gems

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has had a number of problems since launch, but this latest one may be one of the most frustrating. Some of the game’s players have reported instances where the game spends gems without them actually meaning to do so, and since gems are the main in-game currency in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, this is a serious issue. The glitch seems to happen during loading screens or in instances where the game appears to be frozen. Despite how valuable gems are in Harry Potte
