A hacker used 2K Games' support desk to send gamers malware - The Verge

Quick Summary:

According to reports from Bleeping Computer, on Tuesday, a number of 2K customers received emails referencing Zendesk support tickets they had not created.

On Tuesday, game publisher 2K Games notified the public that an “unauthorized third party” had compromised its help desk platform and used it to send malicious links to customers.

Last week we saw MIUI (the Android-based software on Xiaomi phones) themers incorporate Dynamic Island-like ideas into their software, and today 9to5Google reports that Redmi is asking its fans to come up with ideas for what a “Redmi Island” could look like.
