Riot Games has officially revealed the long-awaited rework of League of Legends champion Udyr the Spirit Walker. Udyr’s rework is the latest in a string of visual gameplay updates, referred to as VGUs, to hit the massively popular multiplayer online battle-arena.
While the new trailer doesn’t layout all the changes coming to Udyr, it does offer a pretty impressive first-look as well as a fairly comprehensive overview. According to Riot Games, Udyr now has the ability to commune with “any and all of the spirits of the Freljord,” the harsh and oppressively cold land Udyr and many champions–such as Ashe, Lissandra, and Sejuani–call home. Udyr can also channel these spirits’ ethereal energy and utilize them in his own “wild fighting style.”
Based on the trailer, it seems that Udyr will still have his Bear and Phoenix fighting stances. However, his Turtle and Tiger stances have seemingly been switched out to accommodate two new creatures of the Freljord: the Ram and Boar. More notably, all of these stance’s proper names now reference the Freljord gods Anivia, Ornn, the Iron Boar, and Volibear, adding a lot more continuity to the character.
“With the ability to commune with any and all of the spirits of the Freljord, Udyr channels and transforms their ethereal energy into his own wild physical fighting style,” Riot Games wrote in the rework press release. “Through his growing mastery of this awe-inspiring and versatile power, Udyr seeks to maintain the balance of the Freljord’s mystical landscape, where conflict and struggle is its lifesblood… and where sacrifices must be made to keep peace at bay.”
In addition to his new playstyle, the trailer also showed off Udyr’s beefed-up new look. Let’s just say if his axe and glowing eyes don’t give enemy players a scare, his hulking frame should do the trick.
As of right now, Riot Games has yet to announce when the update will officially go live. However, fans should be able to expect the reworked Udyr to hit servers sometime in the next few months.

Zoom rolls out fix for Mac app security flaw – MobileSyrup
Zoom has pushed out version 5.11.5 of its Mac app, which includes an important security fix for a relatively recent security flaw.
Security researcher and founder of the non-profit Objective-See Foundation Patrick Wardle uncovered the Zoom security flaw and presented it at last week’s Def Con hacking conference. Per The Verge, the exploit leverages the Zoom installer, which requires special user permissions to run. Wardle discovered that it was possible to ‘trick’ Zoom into installing a malicious program by adding Zoom’s cryptographic signature to the package.
Once installed, attackers can use the malicious program to gain more access to a user’s system, potentially to modify, delete, or even add files to the device.
Reversing the patch, we see the Zoom installer now invokes lchown to update the permissions of the update .pkg, thus preventing malicious subversions 🔐👍🏽 pic.twitter.com/00xjqKQsXs

In a tweet, Wardle congratulated Zoom on the quick fixing, noting that it looks like the installer now “invokes lchown to update the permissions of the update” package to prevent malicious apps from sneaking in.
As such, you’ll likely want to grab the latest Zoom update right away to make sure you are protected against the exploit. You can update Zoom by opening the app and clicking the name in the menu bar, then ‘Check for updates.’ If one’s available, you’ll need to click ‘Update’ to start the process.

What satellite navigation systems does the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 support? – XDA Developers
After months of heavy leaks, Samsung’s next foldable phone — Galaxy Z Fold 4 — is finally official. While not a massive upgrade over its predecessor Galaxy Z Fold 3, the new model does bring several notable improvements, making the Galaxy Z Fold 4 Samsung’s most refined foldable yet. The hinge is more compact, ergonomics have improved, cameras and chipset have been upgraded, and there are some new software updates to improve the multitasking experience. In addition, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 also boasts support for all global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), enabling precise location tracking no matter where you are.
GPS support on the Galaxy Z Fold 4
In particular, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 supports four navigation systems, namely, GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, and BeiDou. GPS is short for Global Positioning System, and it’s owned by the United States. GLONASS is a Russian navigation system, while Galileo is operated by European Union Agency. Finally, BeiDou is a Chinese satellite navigation system.
Support for multiple navigation systems means the Galaxy Z Fold 4 can access more satellite signals to calculate its positioning. This translates to increased location accuracy and a faster fix. You can use an app like GPSTest to see in real-time which Global Navigation satellite systems are being used by your phone for positioning. As a consumer, you probably don’t need to worry about any of these details. Just know that your Galaxy Z Fold 4 has everything to offer a smooth navigation experience when using Google Maps, booking an Uber, or any app that relies on precise location tracking.
Location services are notorious battery hogs, so be sure to keep tabs on apps with location access. Ideally, you only want to grant full location access to critical apps — Google Maps and ride apps, for example. In other cases, take advantage of Android’s one-time permission to only grant temporary location access to an app.
Check out the best Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals if you’re on the fence about getting one. You can save money and score freebies. And don’t forget to pick up a case and a fast charger for your expensive purchase.
