Authorities in Melbourne, Australia, have installed loudspeakers that are designed to warn the public in the event of an emergency.

The speakers are part of a security upgrade after six people died in January when a man allegedly struck them deliberately with a car.

Police will use the speakers - to be deployed in more than 90 locations - to direct the public in an emergency.

Messages would advise people on their safest movements, officials said.

"The new speaker system, as well as permanent bollards and CCTV, will provide even greater protection and warning for the community in the event of a serious incident," said Lisa Neville, who is police minister in the state of Victoria.

Apple's root-level macOS bug can be reopened by updating

  Apple's root-level macOS bug can be reopened by updating After news broke of a devastating security flaw in its most recent version of macOS, Apple responded quickly by releasing a patch. As Wired mentions, if someone is still on the initial release of High Sierra (10.13), and installs the patch, then later updates to 10.13.1, then the security flaw will return. It can be fixed by reinstalling the patch, but it's important for users to know that the computers won't restart itself, and it needs to be restarted before it will be secure.

The public would be advised to move to or leave an area, or stay where they are, the government said.

Last week, Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle described "run, hide, tell" advice - used during the London Bridge attack - as simple and effective, and said similar wording could be adopted in his city.

Local authorities said warnings could also be issued through social media and location-targeted text messages.

Melbourne has already installed permanent bollards after January's tragedy, which police said was not terror-related.

Last month, police arrested a man who they allege was planning to carry out a terror attack during New Year's Eve celebrations in Melbourne.

U.S. court dismisses $3 billion suit against Deutsche Bank by Jewish family heirs .
A U.S. district court in Florida has dismissed a lawsuit by the heirs of a prominent Jewish family seeking $3 billion from Deutsche Bank. The Wertheim Jewish Education Trust, in a suit filed in January, said heirs of the German entrepreneur Joseph Wertheim deposited the family's fortune at Credit Suisse in Switzerland as the Nazis rose to power and they emigrated to Spain. The funds were later transferred to Deutsche Bank but never made it back to the heirs, the plaintiffs said.The Florida court dismissed the case on Dec. 6 because the judge said it lacked jurisdiction, according to court documents reviewed by Reuters.
