According to the EULA, sharing with some third parties is optional, unless they are the government or Roomba sells itself or part of itself or reorganizes or goes bankrupt.
OK, I’ll bite. And Google can have this one for free — but like I’ve said before, this isn’t really rocket science.
I’m putting this first because I think our 10%-ers believe that their guilds, their credentials, and getting their children into the right schools, especially as legacies, will protect them (indeed, will transform them into an aristocracy), and 10%-ers, especially in the suburbs, are highly sought voters by both parties. Of course, The Trade Blob is itself composed of 10%-ers, so for them TiSA may turn out to be a cloud no bigger than a man’s hand. Nevertheless, there are at least two issues affecting professionals. One is TiSA’s assault on requirements for “local presence.” Page 53:
Prohibiting requirements for local presence is one of Team TiSA’s principal demands. Accepting that ban would pose major obstacles to effective legal liability, the vetting of qualifications and assessing compliance with technical and professional standards, consumer protections and the ability to tax, as well as monitoring the labour standards of workers who are delivering the service.
At the 30,000-foot level, you can see how eliminating local requirements for “assessing compliance with technical and professional standards” would make the transfer of legal services much more frictionless; why shouldn’t I be able to obtain legal services from an English-speaking lawyer in India or the Phillipines? Granted, lawyers write the laws, so that may be slow to happen — perhap significantly, “Legal Services” do not have a CPC Code under W/120 — but what about (CPC code 862) “Accounting, auditing and bookkeeping services”? Or (8671) “Architectural services”? Or (8672) “Engineering services”? And so on.
TiSA is written with for the benefit of international corporations at the expense of local governments and labor.
The hacker breached its systems, stole VERI tokens and immediately dumped them on the market due to the high-demand. The hacker made $8.4 million from the token sale, which he immediately started to launder. In a post-mortem announcement, Middleton posted online today, the Veritaseum CEO said "the amount stolen was miniscule (less than 00.07%) although the dollar amount was quite material." The CEO also suspects that "at least one corporate partner that may have dropped the ball and [might] be liable." Previous Ethereum services hacks include Parity, CoinDash, and Classic Ether Wallet.
Given how rare Mac malware is, especially one with all the hallmarks of what could be a nation state attacker, Patrick Wardle, a former NSA hacker who now serves as chief security researcher at Synack, got to work.
He found that he could take complete control of an infected Mac, including its keyboard and mouse, take screenshots of the display, remotely switch on the webcam, and modify files. The malware can also run commands in the background, and even kill the malware's process altogether — likely in an effort to avoid detection.
"The most interesting feature is that the malware can send an alert when the user is active," said Wardle, so that the attacker can then avoid interfering with the computer to remain stealthy. "I haven't seen that before," he said. He even found that some commands supported additional parameters. What he called the "second byte" to each command would offer more granular options. He explained that he could take screenshots of the display of varying quality — a useful feature for low-bandwidth connections or trying to evade network detection.
He noticed that the malware was communicating out to primary servers that were offline. But some of the backup servers were available.
"When the Crystal Serenity, a 1,000-passenger luxury liner, sails in August on a monthlong Arctic cruise through the Northwest Passage, it will have a far more utilitarian escort: a British supply ship. The Ernest Shackleton, which normally resupplies scientific bases in Antarctica, will help with the logistics of shore excursions along the route from Alaska to New York through Canada’s Arctic Archipelago. But the escort ship will also be there should the Serenity become stuck in ice or if something else goes wrong. The Shackleton can maneuver through ice and will be carrying emergency water and rations for the liner’s passengers and 600 crew members, gear for containing oil spills and a couple of helicopters. As global warming reduces the extent of sea ice in the Arctic, more ships — cargo carriers as well as liners like the Serenity taking tourists to see the region’s natural beauty — will be plying far-northern waters. Experts in maritime safety say that raises concerns about what will happen when something goes wrong."
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently agreed to phase-out of the use of heavy fuel oil (HFO) in the Artic that would be impossible to clean up.
The “World Health Information Security Testing Labs (or “WHISTL”) will adopt a model akin to the Underwriters Laboratory, which started out testing electrical devices, and focus on issues related to cyber security and privacy, helping medical device makers “address the public health challenges” created by connected health devices and complex, connected healthcare environments, according to a statement by The Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security Consortium (http://www.mdiss.org/).
“MDISS WHISTL facilities will dramatically improve access to medical device security know-how while protecting patient privacy and the intellectual property of our various stakeholders,” said Dr. Nordenberg, MD, Executive Director of MDISS.
The labs will be one of the only independent, open and non-profit network of labs specifically designed for the needs of medical field, including medical device designers, hospital IT, and clinical engineering professionals. Experts will assess the security of medical devices using standards and specifications designed by testing organizations like Underwriters Labs. Evaluations will include application security testing like “fuzzing,” static code analysis and penetration testing of devices.
Any vulnerabilities found will be reported directly to manufacturers in accordance with best practices, and publicly disclosed to the international medical device vulnerability database (MDVIPER) which is maintained by MDISS and the National Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (NH-ISAC).
The group says it plans for 10 new device testing labs by the end of the year including in U.S. in states like New York to Indiana, Tennessee and California and outside North America in the UK, Israel, Finland, and Singapore. The WHISTL facilities will work with Underwriters Labs as well as AAMI, the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation. Specifically, MDISS labs will base its work on the UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program specifications (UL CAP) and follow testing standards developed by both groups including the UL 2900 and AAMI 80001 standards.
The price of energy from bottom-standing offshore wind farms has plummeted 32% since 2012, and is now four years ahead of the government's expected target. Another big price drop is expected, taking offshore wind to a much lower price than new nuclear power.
If you have one of affected processor models (or any Sky/Kaby Lake, to be safe), you'd better install the update immediately. New microcode versions are shipped by Debian and all competent distributions; on Windows you need a BIOS/UEFI update. Sorry if your machine vendor ignores you, like most do.
All known hyper-threading issues are now fixed, after the update you can turn HT back on.
The young man discovered that he could access BKK's website, press F12 to enter the browser's developer tools mode, and modify the page's source code to alter a ticket's price. Because there was no client or server-side validation put in place, the BKK system accepted the operation and issued a ticket at a smaller price. As a demo, the young man says he bought a ticket initially priced at 9459 Hungarian forints ($35) for 50 Hungarian forints (20 US cents).
Instead of thanking the hacker, BKK had police arrest him in the middle of the night and brazenly announce it in a press conference. As details of the case emerged, public outrage grew against BKK and its manager Kálmán Dabóczi, especially after it was revealed that the company was paying around $1 million per year for maintenance of its IT systems, hacked in such a ludicrously simple manner. Tens of thousands of Hungarians have shown their solidarity and support for the teenager by going on Facebook and leaving one-star reviews on BKK's page. Since then, other security lapses have also surfaced on Twitter.
When complete, LBNF/DUNE will be the largest experiment ever built in the U.S. to study the properties of mysterious particles called neutrinos. Unlocking the mysteries of these particles could help explain more about how the universe works and why matter exists at all.
The DOE’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), located outside Chicago, will generate a beam of neutrinos and send them 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) through the Earth to Sanford Lab, where a four-story-high, 70,000-ton detector will be built beneath the surface to catch those neutrinos.
