What was discussed at the Flowers of Life forum in Moscow?

Weekly magazine “Argumenty I Fakty” No. 23. Gifts of fields, gardens and vegetable gardens 09/06/2021

The topic of children’s safety in the network was discussed at the forum “Flowers of Life”, organized by the member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation Evgeny Nifantievon Children’s Day.

“We wanted to have a cozy family holiday. And we did it. This time we have focused on educational work with parents. Young participants were presented with a musical show “Blue Tractor”, and parents were given useful practical knowledge. Unfortunately, not all the threats that lie in wait for our children are obvious. Now parents will be able not only to warn them, but also to equip them with rules of behavior in questionable situations in the network, ” noted Yevgeny Nifantiev.

According to him, many threats come from the Internet, including social networks, which children begin to use almost from the first grade, only after learning to read and write. Unfortunately, parents often use gadgets to calm or keep their children occupied. We have held a number of sports events in the Southern District.we see that we are able to organize children’s leisure activities so that children spend more time with their families in the fresh air, and do not sit in social networks. It is we who can choose for them clubs according to their interests, sports sections and make them friends with the real world, Nifantiev added.

The guest of the event was child psychologist Olga Bochkova, who gave a lecture and answered questions. In a conversation with parents, she noted that we should not forget about the safety of the Internet, so that when using it, children avoid dangerous consequences. * Use parental control programs for children’s gadgets that allow you to limit dangerous content, help filter friends, and control timelocations in the network and are able to track the location. As a rule, such measures are enough to protect the child, and a great effort from the parents is not required, the expert explained.

By the way, in May, Yevgeny Nifantiev held a “Mama Forum” for large families, where the well-known TV presenter Tutta Larsen spoke with the public talk “Conscious Parenthood”.

The Central Bank revoked the license of Energomashbank

The Central Bank of the Russian Federation has deprived the Bank of Power Engineering (Energomashbank) of St. Petersburg of its banking license. This was reported on the website of the regulator on June 9.

The reasons for revoking the license were that Energomashbank had completely lost its own funds and was implementing a high-risk business model. The credit institution has repeatedly violated the laws of the Russian Federation regulating banking activities and the regulations of the Bank of Russia.

Due to the loss of liquidity, Energomashbank was unable to fulfill its obligations to creditors on time, while the bank’s owners did not take the necessary measures to improve financial stability in advance.

The report of the regulator noted that Energomashbank was also deprived of its license to operate in the securities market.

The regulator suspended the powers of the bank’s executive bodies, and a temporary administration was appointed.

In terms of assets, Energomashbank was ranked 145th in the Russian banking system.

Previously, the license was revoked from the Moscow RFI Bank. The credit institution violated federal laws regulating banking activities.

Weekly magazine “Argumenty I Fakty” No. 23. Gifts of fields, gardens and vegetable gardens 09/06/2021

A barefoot trail has opened in Elk Island National Park.

The first route in Russia, created for walking barefoot, was supposed to be launched in the last season, but the opening was postponed due to the pandemic. And here is a 3 km long path finally ready. What “obstacles” are offered to force without shoes, massaging the feet? On the trail there is sand and pine bark, sea pebbles and expanded clay, boulders and cones, and you will still have to walk on logs, ladders and cross the stream.

“We are developing a network of ecological trails, adding fashion trends,” explains Rustam Yakubov, director of the Losiny Ostrov National Park. Specially protected natural areas are becoming more popular, and more and more people choose active recreation.

Roskachestvo warned about the danger of applications “My guests” in social networks

Roskachestvo conducted a study of the applications “My guests” in the social network “VKontakte”. The main dangers of using such programs are the lack of confidentiality guarantees and the likelihood of money being debited from the account, the organization warned.

The experts studied 56 applications of this type (40 on the Android platform and 16 on iOS), and none of them passed the test successfully.  

The main thing to be afraid of when installing such applications is the lack of privacy guarantees and the likelihood of money being debited from your account, Roskachestvo warned. According to experts, after receiving the client’s data or taking his money, such a program can simply disappear. This is exactly what happened with ten of the 56 apps examined-they were removed from the stores.

The specialists also analyzed the traffic direction of the installed programs. It turns out that 60 percent of applications during authorization sent requests to other countries, and the majority went to Turkish servers. The process in which the IP address leads to a third-party server, the staff of the Center for Digital Expertise of Roskachestvo compared to the fact that a person gives the keys to his apartment to a stranger and asks to open the door.

The administration of VKontakte has been warning for several years that applications that can be used to find out data about guests who visited the user’s page simply do not exist in nature, ” Roskachestvo recalled. The organization’s specialists recommended using only official mobile clients.

Earlier, experts told how to protect yourself from spam calls. The first thing you can do is block the numbers from which spammers or scammers called.


American helicopter Ingenuity made the seventh flight over Mars

The Mars-based Ingenuity helicopter has made its seventh flight over the planet’s surface, according to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on Twitter. 

It is specified that the flight lasted 62.8 seconds, the device flew 106 meters to the south and landed in a new place. During the flight, the helicopter took a black-and-white photo.

The creation of the helicopter cost $ 80 million, it was delivered to the Red Planet on February 18, along with the Perseverance rover. The purpose of the research is to study possible traces of life on the planet.

At the end of April, an unmanned NASA helicopter successfully made its fourth flight over the surface of Mars, rising to an altitude of about 5 meters at a speed of about 3.5 m/s.


Do the “My Guests in VK”category apps work?

Some owners of accounts in the social network “Vkontakte” are interested in finding out who visited their pages. The social network itself does not provide such an opportunity, so users are looking for alternative ways and download special applications that promise to show “guests”. Roskachestvo analyzed whether these programs really perform their function.

Do such apps show page visitors?

According to the data of the Roskachestvo research, the main function of the applications of the category “My Guests in VK” is deception. Of the 56 apps of this type studied (40 on Android and 16 on iOS), none were tested successfully.

To determine this, the experts visited the test page from another account, spent some time on it, and then looked at the results in the applications. None of them managed to complete their task and did not show a real guest.

Who do the apps show in the statistics then?

As the social network Vkontakte itself explains, these programs analyze the Likes and comments on the user’s page, and add them to the list of random people for greater reliability.

Are guest tracking apps dangerous?

With a high probability, yes. These applications may pose a threat not only to the privacy of the user’s data, but also to their bank account.

First of all, it is suspicious that some of them request rights to access device functions that are clearly not needed for the application to work: camera, storage, and search for other accounts on the device. Such requests were found by experts in the applications “VK”, “My guests”, “My guests”, “Activity on the” Vk “page, ” Real Guests”, ” VK ” and “Guests”, and “Statistics from “Vkontakte”.

The second obvious danger of such programs is the risk of transferring your credentials to someone unknown. The study showed that 60% of applications do not authorize through the Vkontakte server, but through a third-party one: requests go to other countries, mainly to Turkey. In such a situation, the owners of this unknown server can easily keep the data for themselves and use it at their own discretion.

Also, in a strange way, sometimes these apps have a paid subscription (to disable ads). The window with its design is shown only once, and nowhere in the program of this section can you find it to see the amount of the charge or cancel it. Thus, the user can give the application much more money than planned.

Another dangerous feature of these programs is suspicious advertising. In some cases, it is so inconveniently located that it is easy to accidentally click on it. When you click through, you can end up on a phishing site or download a virus.

What else is suspicious about the operation of these applications?

It turned out that some of them just as quickly disappear from stores as they appeared. They can be removed due to suspicious activity, or the developers themselves decide. Of the 56 apps, 10 were missing from the store by the time the Roskachestvo study was published.

Some of these programs quickly change the conditions of their work: they are paid, then free. For example, the app & laquo; Guests & nbsp; VK & raquo; during the research had to be purchased, and & nbsp; by the time the article was published, it was already free. The app “@Hunter VK ” behaved in a similar way, but in reverse.

What is recommended in Roskachestvo?

Experts of Roskachestvo recommend not to install applications of the category “My guests” in VK and use only official mobile clients.
