Researchers uncover new gravitational wave characteristics #physics #entanglement | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
Monash researchers have identified a new concept - 'orphan memory' - which changes the current thinking around gravitational waves.

The research, by the Monash Centre for Astrophysics, was published recently in Physical Review Letters.

Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that cataclysmic cosmic explosions stretch the fabric of spacetime.

The stretching of spacetime is called 'gravitational waves.' After such an event, spacetime does not return to its original state. It stays stretched out. This effect is called 'memory.'

The term 'orphan' alludes to the fact that the parent wave is not directly detectable.

"These waves could open the way for studying physics currently inaccessible to our technology," said Monash School of Physics and Astronomy Lecturer, Dr Eric Thrane, one of the authors of the study, together with Lucy McNeill and Dr Paul Lasky.

#Ludwig researchers find breakthrough #cancer therapy may work in an unexpected way | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
Antibodies to the proteins PD-1 and PD-L1 have been shown to fight cancer by unleashing the body’s T cells, a type of immune cell. Now, researchers led by Irv Weissman, director of the Ludwig Center at Stanford, have shown that the therapy also fights cancer in a completely different way: by prompting immune cells called macrophages to gobble up cancer cells. The finding may have important implications for cancer immunotherapy.

The #Microsoft #Windows worm is back – and this time it’s serious | #CyberSecurity #Ransomware #Updates #virus

The #Microsoft #Windows worm is back – and this time it’s serious | #CyberSecurity #Ransomware #Updates #virus | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it

Worms are a malware tactic from back in the day - but they still remain tricky to mitigate against...

 

“It’s pretty aggressive, and it’s replicating very quickly.” That reads like the words of stressed system administrator affected by last week’s WannaCry (Wanna Decryptor) ransomware – but actually, that’s the reaction of a security expert from 13 years ago to a new variant of the Sasser worm.

 

WannaCry’s ransomware high jinks apart, the echoes with last Friday’s events are intriguing.

 

Just as WannaCry targets an oft-unpatched Windows SMB flaw, so in 2004 Sasser picked on the scab of unpatched Windows exploit in Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS – hence “Sasser”), which is – ironically – a bit of the OS used to manage security settings.

 

If you think WannaCry’s victim count is impressive, Sasser’s included not-to-be-sniffed-at names such as Deutsche Post, the European Commission and Delta Airlines, to name only a selection.

After #WannaCry, #EternalRocks digs deeper into the #NSA’s exploit toolbox | #CyberSecurity #Ransomware #NSA | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it

WannaCry may be behind us, but fears that the crooks might create new malware from the NSA's stash of exploits seem to be coming true...

 

Defensive measures

With the return of old-school worm outbreaks, it’s worth reviewing steps users can take to avoid infection. Unfortunately, some of those steps have proven unpopular, as Naked Security’s John Dunn wrote. Admins can block services or ports at firewall level but not often indefinitely. Suspending email is another tactic that works until everyone complains.

The best advice remains the same as it did when the outbreak began:

To guard against malware exploiting Microsoft vulnerabilities:

Stay on top of all patch releases and apply them quickly.If at all possible, replace older Windows systems with the latest versions.

A carnivorous plant's prized genetic treasures, unveiled #biology | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
The carnivorous humped bladderwort plant, Utricularia gibba, is a sophisticated predator. It uses vacuum pressure to suck prey into tiny traps at speeds less than a millisecond. A new genomic analysis shows that, over millions of years, it repeatedly retained and enhanced genetic material associated with its carnivorous nature. These include genes that facilitate the trapping of prey, the digestion of proteins, and the transport of small bits of protein from one cell to another.

New WannaCrypt #ransomware variant discovered in the wild | #CyberSecurity #CyberCrime | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
New ransomware samples of WannaCrypt variants have been discovered in the wild but it is yet to be seen if they pose the same threat as the first ransomware attack wave.

On Friday, at least 47 trusts across England and 13 National Health Service (NHS) services in Scotland were faced with severe disruption as IT services went into lockdown due to the Wanna Decryptor ransomware, also known as WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r and WannaCry.

Appointments were cancelled, the general public was urged to not visit NHS Accident & Emergency departments unless absolutely necessary and in some cases, patients were reportedly turned away or moved to other medical establishments as staff were forced to resort to pen-and-paper to try and maintain some order.

IT system provider NHS Digital said in a statement that the attack "was not specifically targeted at the NHS and is affecting organizations from across a range of sectors," words that soon rung true.

A keylogger is a piece of software for which the case of dual-use can rarely be claimed. This means there are very few situations where you would describe a keylogger that records all keystrokes as 'well-intended'. A keylogger records when a key is pressed, when it is released, and whether any shift or special keys have been pressed. It is also recorded if, for example, a password is entered even if it is not displayed on the screen.

Once you get past your own frame of reference, history seems impossibly vast. A century is a long time, but at least it's somewhat easy to get your head around. Now consider the fact that our planet has been around for more than 45 million centuries—that's 4.5 billion years—and it gets a bit mind-boggling.
