Apple This Week: Stock Finds Its North

October 10, 2020 | technology | No Comments

Apple seems to have got into its stride. But it took a bit for the stock to find a north.

After a sharp decline in the first half of September, shares bounced around $107 per share for a moment. In the past two weeks, however, the stock has rallied back to mid-August levels.

For example, a large majority of people who have downloaded SlowCOVIDNC are students in the UNC System, community colleges or private universities in the state.

“It is not an overall number (of downloads) we are looking for — we are trying to get concentrations in places that” are at high risk, Gibbs

In a security alert published on Thursday, US payments processor Visa revealed that two North American hospitality merchants were hacked and had their system infected with point-of-sale (POS) malware earlier this year.

POS malware is designed to infect Windows systems, seek POS applications, and then search and monitor the computer’s memory for payment card details that are being processed inside the POS payments apps.

“In May and June 2020, respectively, Visa Payment Fraud Disruption (PFD) analyzed malware samples recovered from the independent compromises of two North American merchants,” Visa said.

The US payments processor didn’t name either of the two victims due to
