Facebook’s action against two Palestinian hacker groups

Popular social media has taken action against two Palestinian-based hacker groups. The two hacker groups tried to steal information about other users’ IDs and IDs by violating the platform’s policies while using the Facebook platform.

In this context, all the links related to the two groups have been removed from Facebook, the social media said.

Facebook said this in a recent press release. Mike Vlayanski, head of Facebook’s cyber espionage investigation department, and David Agranovich, director of risk analysis, made the announcement.

It said one of the two hacker groups involved the Palestinian Authority’s own intelligence agency, the Preventive Security Service (PSS). The other is a separate group called Arid Vipers. For the first time under the auspices of PSS, Facebook found such hacking activities.

The press release claims that the PSS hacker group conducts their hacking activities from the West Bank. Their main targets were Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Libya and parts of Lebanon. The hacker group was working on Facebook users in these areas to click on a phishing link using social engineering methods. Hackers would install malware on the devices of those who clicked on such links.

According to Facebook, the people whose Facebook IDs are targeted at the phishing include journalists, opponents of the Fatah-led government and critics, and human rights activists. Even military officials at various levels in Syria, Iraq and Turkey were targeted by this phishing link.

On the other hand, Arid Viper using phishing scam method. However, their targeted IDs were mainly in Palestine. In particular, government officials, members of the Fatah group, student groups and members of the law enforcement agencies were among the targets.

According to Facebook, they have blocked all IDs, pages and groups related to these two groups. At the same time, Facebook has warned the users with whom any message or link has been exchanged on behalf of these two groups.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)

Definition – What does the Central Processing Unit (CPU) mean?
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is a unit that performs most of the processing within a single computer. To control the flow of instructions and data to and from other parts of the computer, the CPU relies heavily on a chipset, a group of microchips located on the motherboard.

The CPU has two components:

Control unit: Extracts the instructions from the memory and executes them
Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU): Handles arithmetic and logical operations

To work properly, the CPU relies on the system clock, memory, secondary storage and data, and address buses.

Explains the central processing unit (CPU) of Cyclopedia

The CPU is the heart and brain of a computer. It receives data input, executes instructions and processes information. It communicates with input/output (I / O) devices, which send and receive data to and from the CPU. . The front buses are called front buses for transferring data to CPU, memory, chipset and AGP sockets.

The CPU has internal memory units, called registers. These registers contain the data, instructions, counters, and addresses used in ALU’s data processing.

Some computers use two or more processors. . Each CPU has a distinct interface, separate cache and separate paths for the bus at the front of the system. Multiple processors are ideal for multitasking for intensive parallel work.
