Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will swing onto PS5 in late 2023

Sony has announced that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will release towards the end of next year. 

In a blog post highlighting some of the biggest titles coming to PlayStation next year, Sony confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will release for PS5 in “Fall 2023” (so likely between September and November). 

“Following the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the Spider-duo of Peter Parker and Miles Morales are back in the next blockbuster action chapter of the Marvel’s Spider-Man series,” the post reads. “Much is still to be revealed about the game, and going off the quality of the past two titles, we’re bound to be in for a fantastic new original Spider-Man adventure."

It’s been four years since Insomniac Games released the critically-acclaimed Marvel’s Spiderman, and fans have been waiting on tenterhooks for a sequel ever since – though spin-off Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ release in 2020 certainly helped to scratch our web-slinging itch. 

While a specific release date for the highly-anticipated sequel has not been confirmed yet, we now have an idea of when we’ll be web-swinging our way through the streets of New York once again 

What to expect

There’s a great deal to get excited about when it comes to this much-anticipated Spider-Man sequel. The reveal trailer that was shown at the PlayStation Showcase back in September 2021 displayed some interesting details. 

Arguably the most exciting part of the trailer is the surprise appearance towards the end. That’s when we get to see the infamous Spider-Man villain Venom. It looks like this space-invading symbiote will be one of the main villains that we’ll see Peter and Miles take on in the sequel. 

There’s also another ominous voice that we can hear towards the end of the trailer. Hopefully, this means we’ll be getting a two-for-one villain deal. While it’s not clear who it is as of yet, our money’s on it being Kraven the Hunter. 

Apart from the details on a couple of villains not much else is known about Spider-Man 2 other than it will be a PS5 exclusive, skipping the PS4 and PS4 Pro entirely. 

It seems like 2023 could finally be the year when PlayStation fans will have to bite the bullet and upgrade their console if they want to keep up with all the latest games. I knew it would happen sometime soon; there’s only so long I can hold onto my aging PS4 Pro.

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
