Black Book: the RPG/tactical card game goes from console to iPhone (date + trailer)

This is good news for iOS gamers! The development studio Merteshka and the editor HypeTrain Digital have just jointly announced that Black Book, an excellent tactical card battle RPG based on Slavic myths, will be available on iOS from April 21. The game is already available on PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PS4 and we hope that the mobile version will not suffer any downgrade (the graphic style of the game encourages us to be positive). The pitch of the game is as follows: “A young girl named Vasilisa, destined to become a witch, decides to give up her destiny and marry her beloved, but this dream is shattered when her fiancée dies under mysterious circumstances. In the name of her lost love, Vasilisa searches for the Black Book; a demonic artifact, said to be powerful enough to grant any wish to whoever discovers the 7 seals. Join Vasilisa on her adventures through the *text muted*n countryside, as she solves the problems of ordinary people by confronting demons and performing exorcisms. »

The iOS version of Blackbook will be free, with a one-time in-app purchase unlocking the full game. This version will also include the prologue and Endless mode. Pre-orders for the iOS version are now open on the App Store. The price of the game (in-app purchase therefore) is 12 euros, compared to 22 euros for the console and PC version. This is starting to make a lot of good arguments for a title that is widely acclaimed by critics and players.

The Senate validates the remote activation of telephone microphones or cameras

The Senate has given the green light to a controversial provision of the justice bill authorizing the remote triggering of telephone microphones or cameras in certain investigations. Article 3 of the bill of the Minister of Justice Eric Dupond-Moretti, examined at first reading by the senators, brings several modifications to the criminal procedure.

One of them plans to authorize the remote triggering of computers and other connected devices, without the knowledge of the persons concerned, with two different purposes. On the one hand, real-time geolocation for certain offences. On the other hand, the activation of microphones and cameras to capture sound and images, which would be reserved for cases of terrorism, and delinquency and organized crime.

The Freedom and Digital Observatory (OLN) denounced a “security overkill” allowing to transform any connected object into potential “snitch”. For its part, the left has tried without success to completely or partially remove provisions deemed “disproportionate”. It is “the door open to widespread surveillance”said the ecologist Guy Benarroche.

“These techniques are already applied”, underlined Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti, but they require the installation of beacons or microphones and cameras, which entails risks for the investigators. The layout is “surrounded by important guarantees”, he added. Its implementation will in particular have to be approved by a judge.

Against the opinion of the minister, the Senate adopted an amendment which provides for limiting the possibility of using geolocation to offenses punishable by at least ten years’ imprisonment, against five years in the initial text.

The identity card stored on iPhone will be able to be presented to merchants/companies

Apple says users will be able to use their iPhones with the ID card stored in the Cards (Wallet) app with merchants and other businesses. This will be particularly useful for verifying the age for buying alcohol, renting a car and more. Note that this will also work with the driver’s license saved on the iPhone.

Here is what Apple says in its announcement:

Starting this fall, businesses will be able to accept IDs in Apple Wallet, without additional hardware. This will simplify their ability to securely verify a customer’s age in person for alcohol purchases, for example, or verify a customer’s identity at checkout for car rentals, and even more. To seamlessly and securely present their ID card in Wallet to an equipped merchant, users simply wave their iPhone or Apple Watch near the merchant’s iPhone. Users will see what information is requested and whether the receiving party will store the information. Users will then be prompted to authenticate and provide consent using Face ID or Touch ID.

The feature will only be available in the US initially. And yet, it will be a reality in only a few US states. Indeed, not everyone has yet adopted Apple’s system to have the identity card or driver’s license registered on the iPhone.

Jailbreak for iPadOS 17 successfully completed

Apple is offering iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 in beta form, and a jailbreak for the new operating system has already been successfully completed by the Palera1n tool team. It took 24 hours to get there.

On Twitter, the Palera1n team has published a screenshot with an iPad running iPadOS 17 that has been jailbroken. This is the 6th generation iPad.

In itself, this jailbreak is not really a surprise. Indeed, the 6th generation iPad is one of the devices that have the Checkm8 flaw. This is a hardware flaw, meaning Apple can’t plug it with a simple iOS update. Checkm8 affects chips A5 through A11.

In a tweet, the Palera1n team announcement that their jailbreak tool is going to be updated in the future for iPadOS 17 “because it is currently a bit broken”. It is specified that it will be a rootless type jailbreak. Also, support for tvOS 17 for Apple TV should come later.

What about iOS 17 jailbreak on iPhone? It should not be counted on, at least not with Checkm8. As said before, the flaw concerns chips A5 up to A11. And it turns out that iOS 17 is offered from the iPhone XS which embeds the A12 chip. In fact, no iPhone eligible for iOS 17 is vulnerable to Checkm8.

A jailbreak could technically see the light of day on iPhone, but that would require finding software flaws within iOS 17 itself. And this task is far from simple, given that it is generally necessary to exploit several flaws at the same time.
