Did human-chimp hybrid ever exist? 

A renowned scientist has made a sensational claim that almost 100 years ago, a human-chimp hybrid was created in a lab in the US – before later being killed by panicked doctors.

Evolutionary psychologist Gordon Gallup claims his former university professor confirmed that a successful ‘humanzee’ experiment occurred in Orange Park, Florida in the 1920s.

It would mean that a female chimp was artificially inseminated with human sperm, before successfully falling pregnant with a half-human, half ape child.

Gallup told The Sun : “They inseminated a female chimpanzee with human semen from an undisclosed donor and claimed not only that pregnancy occurred, but the pregnancy went full term and resulted in a live birth.

scientist, who worked at Yerkes before the research centre was relocated to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1930.

The earliest and most notable example of human-ape hybridisation is the work of Russian scientist Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov, who conducted a series of famous experiments in the 1920s.

He inseminated female chimpanzees with human sperm, but none of the animals ever fell pregnant.

Ivanov also set up several controversial experiments involving ape sperm and human volunteers, but his project was halted and never resumed.

More recently, in 1958, Oliver the chimpanzee was touted as a humanzee, due to his unusually human-like appearance.

He was able to walk upright, instead of on his knuckles, and was bald with freckles and a protruding nose, which only added to the speculation.

But in 1996, a DNA test revealed that Oliver had 48 chromosomes – the number of a

normal chimpanzee.

It was claimed that he he 47 – the number in between a chimp’s 48 and a human’s 46 chromosomes.

Oliver died in 2012, at the age of 55.

Gallup claims that it’s not only possible to crossbreed humans with chimpanzees, but with all the great apes, including gorillas and orangutan.

He added: “Humans and all three of the great apes species are all descended from a single common ape-like ancestry.

“I’ve also coined what would be the appropriate terms to refer to human-gorilla hybrids and human-orangutan hybrids which would be a ‘hurilla’ and a ‘hurang’.”

But while he admits it would be “fascinating” to see a real-life example of a humanzee, Gallup is unsure whether the costs of such a bizarre and controversial biological experiment would outweigh the benefits.

Fears over new iPhone Wi-Fi bug that lets hackers hijack your phone and secretly install malicious apps

Hackers could secretly hijack your iPhone and install malicious apps, according to researchers who have found a new Wi-Fi bug.

Security experts showed this bug could install malicious apps without the owner being aware – similar to the Key Reinstallation Attacks or Krack that emerged last month. 

Uncovering the flaw won a security lab the top prize of $110,000 (£760,000) at a hacking contest in Tokyo.

The details of the hack have not been made public and Apple has not had time to patch the flaw.

.At the global Pwn2Own hacking contest the Tencent Keen Security Lab showed how a Wi-Fi bug could get entry to iPhones.

This means the most sensitive information such as banking information and passwords could be taken by hackers.

‘Once we verify the research presented is a true 0-day exploit, we immediately disclose the vulnerability to the vendor, who then has 90 days to release a fix,’ explains Zero Day Institutewho ran the initiative.

‘Representatives from Apple, Google, and Huawei are all here and able to ask questions of the researchers if needed.’

It could be related to iOS 11.1 as that is what all the phones at the hacking event were running on, according to a tweet from Zero Day Initiative.

Apple has not issued a statement but on its security webpage it says: ‘Apple doesn’t disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until an investigation has occurred and patches or releases are available.’

‘Recent releases are listed on the Apple security updates page.’

.Just last month security experts warned we should be on high alert as our home networks could be vulnerable to attack by hackers from a similar Wi-Fi bug. 

It emerged encryption algorithms designed to protect people’s privacy online had been cracked.
