Facebook fixes a major security bug. t would have allowed "messenger audio calls" to be used for listening-in to a user's conversation. The bug was reported through facebook's "bug bounty program". It earned the researcher who discovered it $60,000.

Some gamers in Britain went online to complain about Amazon not delivering their new Sony Playstation 5 consoles. One posted video showing her receiving an air fryer instead. It's believed the in-demand PS5's were somehow stolen - to be resold on the black market. 

And finally, "robot dogs" are the newest members of the security team at Florida's Tin-Dill Air Force base. They're part of a project with a robotics firm based in Philadelphia. A camera allows remote operators to see the area around the "dog". 
They can also use a speaker to talk to any intruders out there.
