Chromebook SH1MMER exploit promises admin jailbreak


When G attempted to patch this exploit, they also Bricked some Legitimate Devices !

This is known to have happened with Chrome OS 111 roll-out, but probably other updates too !

Google makes outdated apps less accessible on Play Store


Play Protect even disables Google's own security software !

I recently got a "Play Protect" warning because a few apps that I have installed had not been accessed in the previous 3 months.

Play Protect had removed Permissions from various apps including "Find My Device" from Google ! WTF !

I checked the list of disabled apps, and at least one other was a wanted app, but how can this behaviour be helpful, disabling their own security software ?
