At least some of its DRAM products are indeed defective, admits SK hynix
by Sayan Sen
SK hynix, one of the largest DRAM chip makers in the world, has confirmed that some of the DRAM products it made were indeed defective. In a statement to The Register, the firm has said:
However, it was quick to add that the number of defective products that were circulating around in rumors was hugely overblown. "The scale of the potential losses mentioned in the rumor is absolutely not true and exaggerated", it added.
According to such rumors, the company was having to deal with around 240,000 defective memory wafers, which is an enormous number and a huge cause for worry especially in a time of serious massive global chip shortage.
Consequently, the shares of the chip giant fell 0.78 percent to 127,500 won. Clearly upset about this entire situation, the company has requested a police investigation for looking into whosoever may be spreading such rumors.

I have an HP desktop from work that I wanted to install some extra memory in and it is not detected. I have attached a picture from the BIOS. The PC originally had 2 DIMMS of 4GB totaling 8GB. I added 2 additional DIMMS of 4GB to bump the total to 16GB. After adding the additional memory, the BIOS doesn't see it as illustrated below and of course Windows does not either. There was a newer BIOS update, so I did that update with no luck. I did some googling and there were a few things to check within Windows, but I gather since it isn't detected by the BIOS, those won't matter.
The only other thing I can think of is trying the additional sticks one at a time to verify they are good, but beyond that can't think of what else to try. Any thoughts? Thank you!

Google banned over 100,000 malicious developers in 2020
by Usama Jawad
The Play Store is not exactly known for its security, but Google continually makes efforts to improve the overall situation. To that end, the company has now disclosed the various methodologies it used to fight malicious apps and developers in 2020, and has shared some accompanying statistics as well.
In 2020, over 100 billion installed apps were scanned by Play Protect on a daily basis. Play Protect was introduced back in 2017 to give users more visibility over Android security. With 2020 being a particularly difficult year due to growing fake news, U.S. elections, as well as people scrambling to find reliable information regarding COVID-19 and vaccines, Google took several steps to ensure that apps do not harm users via misinformation.
Among these was the requirement that apps dealing with sensitive use-cases such as displaying information about COVID-19 testing sites should meet a high-level of user data privacy and should be endorsed by government or healthcare authorities. New guidelines were introduced for apps which market themselves as "News" to improve transparency for users of the Play Store. Finally, specific teams and processes were put in place to focus on U.S. elections and to prevent related abuse via the Play Store.
Google's machine learning algorithms stopped over 962,000 apps from release on the Play Store because they violated certain policies. In the same vein, 119,000 malicious and spammy developer accounts received the banhammer.
Other enhancements include the review of all apps requesting access to location in the background and enforcing developers to provide user benefit when they request this information. Apps which do not follow these guidelines will be removed from the Play Store. Google plans to disclose more information about this process soon.
Lastly, the company also released a new tab in the Play Store containing "Teacher approved" apps, containing recommendations from academic experts and advisors.
Google says that it will continue investing in efforts that prevent malicious content from being distributed in the Play Store. The company hopes to build and sustain trust not only with users, but developers as well. It noted that its enforcement actions in the past year have resulted in increased developer satisfaction and a reduced number of appeals overall.
