Diablo Immortal will be released on June 2, 2022

There are just a few days left until the official launch of Diablo Immortal, the mobile spin-off of Blizzard Entertainment’s iconic dungeon crawler. The action RPG, also released on PC, offers a brand new setting and a brand new story, as well as six different classes with which to venture into the world of Sanctuary. Ahead of the upcoming global debut, the development team has shared all the details related to the release on iOS, Android and Windows.

“Skarn, Lord of Damnation, has amassed his warmongering forces in anticipation of your imminent arrival at Sanctuary. With an ashen look and horrible frown, the demon lord murmurs … ‘We are waiting for you.'” Thus Diablo Immortal welcomes the wanderers of Sanctuarium, the heroes destined to thwart the nefarious plans of Skarn.

The launch of Diablo Immortal is set for June 2 at 19.00 (Italian time) for iOS and Android. Some players, Blizzard explains, will see the title available in the App Store and Google Play on the morning of June 1 – a discrepancy that “is partly due to how mobile games are released” and which serves “to ensure smooth delivery. complete for the mobile version of Immortal “. To find out when you can download in your region, you can consult the table shared a few hours ago by Blizzard itself.

Also from 2 June it will be possible to access the PC version of Diablo Immortal, available in open beta: it is already possible to pre-load via Battle.net. We remind you that to access Immortal on PC it is necessary to have installed the Battle.net application and to log in with an existing account. On Android and iOS, however, simply download the game from the related digital stores, click on the Install button and let the download complete.

In the post published on the Blizzard Entertainment blog, it is possible to consult a series of FAQs that clarify all the possible doubts related to the launch of the game on mobile and PC.

Log4Shell is the new zeroday flaw: a bug present in most applications, and very easily exploitable

Log4Shell is a new zeroday vulnerability discovered last Thursday when it was exploited to remotely compromise Minecraft servers. The vulnerability was traced with the code CVE-2021-44228 and was assigned a severity level of 10 out of 10 as it can be exploited very easily and allows the execution of remote unauthenticated code.

The vulnerability concerns in particular Log4j, an open source event logging tool based on Java and available from Apache that is used by hundreds of thousands of apps, especially in the cloud and including those commonly used in almost all companies on the planet. .

Event logging is a process by which applications keep an up-to-date list of the activities performed and which can thus be analyzed later in the event of errors. Almost all network security systems run some kind of event log, which gives libraries such as Log4j nearly endless coverage.

The exploitation of the vulnerability occurs by managing to have a special sequence of characters recorded on the log, as Cloudflare illustrated in detail in its analysis. And, as mentioned, the vulnerability can be exploited with ease: in the case of Minecraft, for example, it was possible to record the sequence of characters on the log simply by sending a message in the chat within the game.

Since the compromise of the Minecraft servers occurred, the security company Greynoise has detected an active scan in progress on the Internet that attempted to identify vulnerable servers. The researchers point out that they have observed that the vulnerability is exploited for various purposes: from the installation of malware to cryptomining, to the hardening of Linux botnets, passing from the extraction of data and configurations.

Battlefield 2042, the beta version available from today in preload

Battlefield 2042 is one of the best shooting games. The release of the video game is approaching, but in the meantime the beta is upon us, with the possibility of preloading already yesterday on PC and consoles and the opening of the new trial version scheduled for today, Wednesday 6 October 2021. After many uncertainties and rumors, the beta and preload dates have been officially announced by EA and the early download is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. Let’s say that it is not really a feature that smells of realism, but the series has never wanted to be too fiscal under the simulation aspect and certainly will not change its philosophy with Battlefield 2042. (IGN ITALY) Well, on the technical front, the PlayStation 5 version promises well with its 2160p that seems effective (even if some reconstruction technique has been used is not noticeable at all) and a fairly solid frame rate. We must always consider that this is the open beta version, therefore not indicative of the final quality of the game, but already seen in this way, with very high PC settings, it makes a good impression at 4K and 60 fps.

No, Fluent Design won’t make Windows11 slower

Materiale Mica Windows 11

Windows 11 is undoubtedly the character of the moment at Microsoft: the final version is expected in October of this year, but 99% of the doubts about it seem to have already been resolved. One among all, the concern of some users that the new design introduced by the operating system could, in some way, have a negative impact on the performance of the PC. Thought that would arise from the fact that Microsoft is trying a totally different approach regarding Fluent Design on Windows 11, implementing it on all pages and apps. The renewal of this design leads to the introduction of “Mica”, a design element that, unlike the Aero themes of Windows 7 & co., Does not focus on the transparency of the elements but makes sure to color the background of the app you are using, creating a sort of “visual hierarchy”. In currently available trial versions, Mica is viewable in apps such as Windows Explorer, Settings, or Microsoft Teams. Photo credit: Newer Windows Windows 11 Mica material How does this relate to the discourse of impact on performance? Someone thought that using this design, the desktop background is “saved” for each frame, in order to blur. In reality this is not the case, since the blur is performed only once, precisely to avoid overloading the CPU too much with a substantially useless workload. On the other hand, we are not surprised by the fact that Microsoft aims to make its new operating system slimmer, especially after the statements in which the company stated that performance is one of the most important priorities, so we are constantly making sure that any new features are introduced. in this case we refer to the Mica material and the rounded corners of the windows, which replace the classic pointed corners) does not have negative effects on the operating system.

Intel’s next US factory will in fact be a small town

A structure that will integrate 6 to 8 blocks for the production of chips, with 10,000 employees and 100,000 people involved with the related industries. In fact, Intel will build a small town dedicated to silicon

Intel’s development plans for the next few years are strongly linked to the IDM 2.0 strategy, a name that identifies Intel’s project linked to the production of semiconductors on behalf of customers. The company’s goal for the next few years is to sustain growth not only by producing its own solutions but also by dedicating itself to building chips developed by other companies. Hence the desire to build a new campus which, in terms of size and number of people involved in the production, directly and indirectly, will take on the size and scope of a small town. On campus there will be space from 6 to 8 units dedicated to the production and packaging of the chips, using the proprietary technologies that the company has announced over the past few weeks. Each module dedicated to the production of chips is expected to cost between 10 and 15 billion US dollars, a figure that could lead to an overall cost of the entire structure in excess of 100 million dollars.

In the 10 years since the start of construction, this new campus will see the employment of approximately 10,000 employees, with a total of 100,000 new jobs created through the related industries. Given the size and the number of people involved, it is easy to imagine that Intel could build the new campus near a big city, also taking advantage of the university structure to find new qualified personnel to hire. Pat Gelsinger anticipated that by the end of the year it will be indicated where in the United States this new production complex will be built. The production should take place in the course of 2024, so it will take a few more years for this initiative to see the light. This development move by Intel confirms how strongly the company is interested in expanding its business by increasingly turning to customers who will delegate the production of their solutions to it. What was anticipated by the company during the Intel Accelerated event of the past weeks leaves no room for doubt: a strategy made up of increasingly sophisticated production processes, flanked by technologies for packaging and interconnections that will allow the production of chips that at the moment they do not exist and will be the future of technological development in the coming years.

Whatsapp: support for multi-device use is coming soon

whatsapp-multi-device

The multi-device on WhatsApp will allow you to use the same account on multiple devices, be they smartphones, desktop computers, laptops, and tablets. And, along with support for multi-device, compatibility with iPad should also come. At the moment, however, WhatsApp is far behind the competition, which has supported the multi-device for some time: an account can only be configured on the smartphone, and the latter must be active in order to use the service on other devices as well. Thanks to the novelty, however, WhatsApp will be usable everywhere even if the smartphone is turned off, as is the case on other similar services.

The best application file archiver (zip) for PC

7ZIP [free]

7-zip_77565

7-Zip is a free and open-source file archiver, a utility used to place groups of files within compressed containers known as “archives”. It is developed by Igor Pavlov and was first released in 1999. 7-Zip uses its own 7z archive format, but can read and write several other archive formats.

In my opinion it is the best software. It is very light (taking up very little memory) and recognizes a considerable amount of file formats. The only flaw is the somewhat raw graphic interface. Often to open a file you will have to right-click on the icon, and go to the appropriate entries of 7zip
