Do you still remember Sega?

That’s name behind the wonderful game console and games that made your childhood days amazing.

Sega Brings Classic Sega Games To Smartphones 1

Sega seemed to go under the radar for a couple of years , and when such things happen to a company it doesn’t take a scientist to tell that they’re going down. In what I would call a last attempt to get back into the game business, Sega is adopting a new strategy. However, it’s quite possible that people would put down their HD games for a couple of days to get a taste of the past.

The video game company has launched Sega Forever, which is aimed at keeping the Sega name alive long into the future.

To keep the Sega game alive, they are coming for their old fans have found comfort with their Smartphones. There is no better way to make a comeback other than this.

Sega was unarguably one of the biggest game companies on the planet then. Their consoles, which included the Genesis (or Mega Drive) was so amazing, it kept so many kids excited and pinned down in front of the T.V set.

Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco The Dolphin and Seaman; if you were really a gamer right from your childhood days, these names I just mentioned will strike up some memories of your wonderful gaming moments.

Sega’s most expensive mistake that set them on the track to almost extinction was the release of the Dreamcast, a highly underrated console. However, Sega still exists and develops arcade machines and games for other consoles but their name is not a success as it used to be in the past.

With Sega Forever, the company hopes to make its comeback in the world of mobile gaming too and hopefully they will make a successful comeback since Smartphones are exactly what’s keeping their old deserted fans busy right now.

The games will be free to play, and supported by ads. Anybody that hates seeing the ads can make a one-off payment of $1.99 (per title) to turn off the ads.

Already, Sega has already launched five Genesis titles: Sonic the Hedgehog, Comix Zone, Altered Beast, Kid Chameleon, and Phantasy Star II. New games will be launched every two weeks, with titles from the Master System, the Game Gear, the Saturn, and the Dreamcast still to come.

All Sega Forever titles will be available to play offline, but to add more spice and make it fun, online leaderboards are also available.The older Sega titles will be brought to smartphones thanks to emulation, while the more recent titles will have to be ported to iOS and Android.

Vulnerability in RCS messaging could compromise your bank details

German security company SRLabs has recently discovered a serious security breach that could replace SMS. According to their findings, the RCS protocol has a vulnerability that allows your data to be intercepted.

Hackers could exploit this vulnerability locally or remotely. Among the information they can intercept, we have unique codes that are sent by message in two-factor authentication systems.

One of the applications of these unique codes is in the authorization of bank transactions. This means that in extreme cases your bank details could be compromised due to this vulnerability.

RCS

Android messaging should improve your domain verification system

As SRLabs points out, the most popular application supporting RCS technology is currently Android Messaging. According to its findings, this application does not properly verify domains.

This means that miscreants can spoof caller ID or DNS. Something that could mislead users and provide information they shouldn’t.

Coincidentally or not, Google revealed this week that it will accredit message senders in your app. The idea is for companies to register their contact numbers with Google so that they can validate them when communicating with users. A measure that will certainly reduce the impact of this vulnerability.

What is RCS and its differences from SMS

The acronym RCS stands for Rich Communication Service. Briefly, this protocol allows messages to be sent over the internet. The SMS protocol uses cellular networks to send messages.
