Yesterday saw the first of what promises to be many, many hearings in the Apple vs Epic legal battle over Apple’s App Store policies and fees. That first hearing was preliminary to the preliminaries, merely designed to see if Apple should be forced to reinstate Epic’s developer privileges immediately while the court figures out whether the company should reinstate Epic’s privileges temporarily for the duration of the trial.
A decision came in the wee hours of the night.
As Russell Brandom explains, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled that “Apple can’t retaliate against Epic Games by terminating the company’s Apple developer accounts or restricting use of Epic’s Unreal Engine by developers on Apple platforms. But in the same ruling......

(Swansea University) Three mummified animals from ancient Egypt have been digitally unwrapped and dissected by researchers, using high-resolution 3D scans that give unprecedented detail about the animals' lives - and deaths - over 2000 years ago. The three animals - a snake, a bird and a cat - are from the collection held by the Egypt Centre at Swansea University. Previous investigations had identified which animals they were, but very little else was known about what lay inside the mummies.
App Store drama aside, Apple's services push continues with new channels.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the California home of YouTube star Jake Paul this morning, according to TMZ and CBSLA. Agents removed several objects that looked like firearms from Paul’s home, ABC7 reported. The bureau is investigating “allegations of criminal acts” surrounding an incident at an Arizona mall in May, a spokesperson for the FBI’s Phoenix office told The Verge.
A second location, in Las Vegas, Nevada, was also raided today in connection with the investigation. TMZ says the home is owned by Arman Izadi, a friend of Paul who was also connected to the incident at the mall.
Police in Scottsdale, Arizona previously called the incident in the mall a “riot.” The FBI appears to have taken over the investigation into...

A new report shows the average prices that hackers are willing to pay in exchange for control of different online accounts that have been compromised.
Selling stolen login credentials is a common practice on the dark web, a collection of underground networks, where hackers will pay a high price for access to personal data, counterfeit documents, and hacked social media accounts.
Compromised Gmail and Facebook accounts are among the priciest stolen logins, possibly because they could be leveraged to gain broader access or trick other people into handing over information.

Can you put a price tag on the security of your online accounts? Hackers certainly can — and a new report shows the average price they're willing to pay for compromised account logins traded on the dark web.
Researchers with Privacy Affairs, the research arm of cybersecurity firm NordVPN, analyzed hundreds of recent listings on the dark web, where hackers routinely exchange stolen credentials. The researchers indexed the average prices of different types of logins for sale.
A hacked Facebook account goes for $74.50 on average, while Instagram accounts averaged $55.45 and Twitter logins went for $49 on average.
Daniel Markuson, a NordVPN analyst, said in a statement that the selling prices for compromised social media accounts are "relatively low," but noted that hackers typically access accounts in order to pull off more lucrative scams.
"This information can be used in many fraudulent activities, including identity theft, so its protection shouldn't be underestimated," Markuson said in a statement.
A hacked Gmail account averaged a higher selling price — $155,73, on average — due in part to the fact that it could potentially provide a wide range of insight into a target's life and other accounts.
Hackers also regularly use compromised email accounts to trick other victims into sending compromising information — email scams cost businesses $1.7 billion in 2019, the FBI said, and a FireEye study found that 91% of all cybercrimes start with an email.
Even more lucrative than social media accounts are payment processing service accounts, which hackers use to send cash transfers from other grifts in order to avoid detection by law enforcement. Hackers offered to use stolen PayPal accounts to transfer amounts ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 in exchange for a $320 fee on average, according to the report.
Meanwhile, information on people's credit cards and debit cards sell for less — anywhere from $15 to $35 on average — in part because those transactions are easily traceable.
The report recommends that people regularly change their passwords in order to avoid having their accounts compromised. Services like Have I Been Pwned are available to check whether a login and password have been stolen in a past breach. Using a password manager can also help keep accounts secure.
