Zack Snyder’s Justice League: The visual effects challenges

When DC Films’ Justice League was in post-production back in 2017, its director, Zack Snyder, had to stand down from the project for personal reasons.

The film was completed, but with significant changes from Snyder’s original version, and it received almost universally bad reviews.

Fans launched a massive internet campaign for Snyder’s version of the film to be released – with the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut trending worldwide. Three of the stars of the film also got involved.

Microsoft was warned months ago before the Hafnium hack became this serious

Over the weekend, that estimate has doubled to 60,000 Microsoft Exchange Server customers hacked around the world, with the European Banking Authority now admitting that it’s one of the victims — and it looks like Microsoft may have taken a little too long to realize the severity and patch it. Krebs has now put together a basic timeline of the massive Exchange Server hack, and he says Microsoft has confirmed it was made aware of the vulnerabilities in early January.

That’s nearly two months before Microsoft issued its first set of patches, alongside a blog post that didn’t explain the scope or scale of the attack. Originally, it was even planning to wait for one of its standard Patch Tuesdays but relented and pushed it out a week early.

Apple investigated in UK over ‘unfair’ App Store claims

Fortnite and Apple have been locked in legal battle since August
The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority has launched an investigation into whether Apple’s terms for app developers are anti-competitive.

It follows a series of complaints, including a high-profile one from Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite.

Some developers are unhappy that they are forced to distribute apps to iPhones and iPads via the App Store, and the commission Apple takes.

Apple said its terms were “fair and equal”.

YouTube will lift Trump’s suspension when ‘the risk of violence has decreased’

Trump was temporarily suspended in January after encouraging supporters to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, just before a violent attack on the US Capitol. Unlike similar suspensions on Twitter and Facebook, however, his YouTube channel suspension was described as temporary. In a new interview with the head of the Atlantic Council think tank, Wojcicki offered a more concrete description of how — although not precisely when — Trump could return.

“The channel remains suspended due to the risk of incitement to violence,” Wojcicki said. “Given the warnings by the Capitol Police yesterday about a potential attack today, I think it’s pretty clear that that elevated violence risk still remains. However, I do want to confirm that we will lift the suspension of the channel. We will lift the suspension of the Donald Trump channel when we determine that the risk of violence has decreased. That’s per our policies, that’s how our three strikes system works. But when the channel is reinstated, it will be subject to the same policies that every other channel follows.”
