LCL victim of a massive cyberattack
In recent months, LCL customers have been victims of a cyberattack and have had sums ranging from 1,000 to 30,000 euros cut from their account. A total of 300,000 euros would have disappeared from bank accounts, and would have been transferred to accounts in Eastern Europe. While Crédit Lyonnais believes that customers have been victims of a phishing campaign, the LCL application could also be involved according to our colleagues from ZATAZ, who have identified numerous security flaws there.

Millions of hard-to-sell Samsung smartphones
This is a report from The Elec which reveals that Samsung is currently having difficulty selling its smartphone stocks. While the Galaxy A were among the best-selling phones in the world, they no longer seem to interest consumers who are increasingly turning to other brands such as Poco, Redmi or Xiaomi. The report estimates that the manufacturer would end up with around 50 million unsold units on its hands.

The Nothing Phone 1 equipped with an LED system on the back
If we still have to wait until July 12 for the official launch of the Nothing Phone 1, we already know that it will be equipped with an LED system on the back. The youtuber MKBHD had the opportunity to take the first transparent smartphone in hand and lifts the veil on the LED strips, dubbed “glyph interface” by Nothing, which will serve as “filling light for the cameras“, will make the phone shine by synchronizing with ringtones, and will act as a progress bar for recharging.

Hackers attack Health Insurance again
Our colleagues from Zataz have revealed that they have discovered that the Health Insurance site is once again the victim of mass hacking. According to the investigation, the hacker, thanks to a phishing campaign, collects identifiers and recovers passwords to then put them on sale on hacker forums. The selling price is not very high since it is around 5700 euros. We advise you to change your password and to remain cautious while waiting for the Ameli site to strengthen the security of its platform.

Our tests of the week
Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro: a very convincing luxury watch
With its noble and resistant materials, its excellent autonomy and its fluid navigation, the Watch GT 3 Pro should appeal to more than one sportsman. In addition to an assistant that sometimes doesn’t understand everything, unsupported emojis and Harmony OS that seems to be struggling to evolve, we love the customization functions and the monitoring of sport and health. Huawei strikes hard with this connected watch with a luxurious and solid design.

BMW competes with Tesla with the BMW I4 EDRIVE40
During our test of the BMW I4, we were immediately seduced by this electric sports coupe. We were won over by its style, its performance, its reasonable consumption and its handling on the road. We regret that the options are too expensive and the absence of a real planner, but we like the BMW iDrive with the BMW Curved Display screens.

We tested the new PlayStation Plus for you
With its fair price, its large catalog of games and its well-stocked PS3 toy library, the PlayStation Plus Extra subscription has largely convinced us. Sony offers a technically impeccable service here, both in terms of streaming, emulation and the interface. On the other hand, the Premium subscription left us more skeptical. Indeed, the price of 17 euros is not justified, in particular because of its library of PS1, PS2 and PSP games which lacks big hits and its trial versions are not very useful.
