Stealing Data From Computers Using Heat | WIRED

Stealing Data From Computers Using Heat | WIRED | Jeff Morris | Scoop.it
Researchers at Ben Gurion University have found a way to transmit or receive data between an air-gapped computer and another system nearby using only heat emissions.

Roger Smith's curator insight, March 25, 6:03 PM

This story is for a story sake and just to scare people.  

"The proof-of-concept attack requires both systems to first be compromised with malware." 

Not with any malware but with a specific type of malware.    Considering airgapped computers are not connected this makes the possibility of the airgapped computer being compromised highly unlikely.

Gary Yuen's curator insight, March 26, 6:18 PM

For now, printing fully-functional organs to be transplanted is still in development, only using mice as test subjects. But it's a start, in the future, a machine may be able to produce the organ you need without you having to wait in line for an organ donor.

Patrick Bolter's curator insight, March 27, 3:31 AM

With 3D printers becoming more and more advanced, it is becoming feasible to create specialised ones that will be capable of printing things like body tissue. I believe this will become a big area in technology in the coming decade.
