Samsung Galaxy S23 could land in early February with an extremely high price

There’s probably not long to wait now until the Samsung Galaxy S23 series launches, with these phones expected to land in early 2023, and more specifically they might land in February.

That’s according to “a Samsung Electronics executive with knowledge of the matter,” speaking to the Korea JoongAng Daily, in a report spotted by The Verge.

They reportedly claimed that “the S23 series will be shown during our own Unpacked event in the United States, which will be held in February,” and while they didn’t get more specific than that, the site cited local media outlets as saying that the Galaxy S23 line will be unveiled in San Francisco in the first week of February.

So the Samsung Galaxy S23 – along with the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra – might only be around two months away, at the time of writing if this is accurate, but they might also be very expensive.

These are high-end handsets, so they’re never cheap, but the Korea JoongAng Daily additionally claims that the Galaxy S23 line will probably be more expensive than the Galaxy S22 or Samsung Galaxy S21 lines, thanks to inflation.

The site doesn’t get specific about the price, but for reference the Samsung Galaxy S22 starts at $799 / £769 / AU$1,249, so the Galaxy S23 may well cost more than that – with the S23 Plus and S23 Ultra having even higher prices.

Analysis: a February launch is looking highly likely

This isn’t the first time a February launch has been rumored. In fact, this isn’t even the first time that we’ve heard the Samsung Galaxy S23 release date might be in the first week of February, so that timing is looking quite likely.

We’ve got more than just rumors to support this timing too, as with the exception of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series – which was announced in January 2021 – we’ve been seeing new Galaxy S models in February every year for quite a while.

So even without leaks and rumors, a February announcement would have been our best guess. That said, we’re not certain of anything yet, so different timing remains a possibility. But either way we’d think these best phone contenders will be arriving before long.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website, portodelisboa.pt, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc
