Windows PCs Under Attack in Europe, PCs at Chernobyl Nuclear Plant Infected

IT Security Nachrichten vom 27.06.2017 um 18:23 Uhr | Quelle news.softpedia.com
Windows computers in Europe are currently under attack due to what seems to be a new form of ransomware similar to WannaCry. Hundreds of businesses and organizations are said to be targeted in this new wave of attacks, with victims including computers at the Chernobyl nuclear plant. At this point, it’s not entirely clear if this is an updated version of WannaCry or not, but security company originally posted that there’s evidence this is a variant of the Petya ransomware. In a recent update, Kaspersky says it believes this is a new form of malware, with the company revealing that 2,000 computers have been attacked only this afternoon. Windows PCs in Europe seem to be the most affected by the new virus, and Ukraine appears to be one particular target, which raises questions as to the source of these attacks. Security experts believe that Russian hackers might be involved, as the power grid in Ukraine and other utility state companies have previously been attacked by...

Volvo's Driverless Cars 'Confused' by Kangaroos

IT Security Nachrichten vom 27.06.2017 um 18:00 Uhr | Quelle tech.slashdot.org
An anonymous reader shares a report: Volvo's self-driving technology is struggling to identify kangaroos in the road. The Swedish car-maker's 2017 S90 and XC90 models use its Large Animal Detection system to monitor the road for deer, elk and caribou. But the way kangaroos move confuses it. "We've noticed with the kangaroo being in mid-flight when it's in the air, it actually looks like it's further away, then it lands and it looks closer," its Australia technical manager said. But the problem would not delay the rollout of driverless cars in the country, David Pickett added.

China's All-Seeing Surveillance State Is Reading Its Citizens' Faces

IT Security Nachrichten vom 27.06.2017 um 17:20 Uhr | Quelle yro.slashdot.org
China's government is using facial-recognition technology to help promote good behavior and catch lawbreakers, reports the WSJ. From the article: Facial-recognition technology, once a specter of dystopian science fiction, is becoming a feature of daily life in China, where authorities are using it on streets, in subway stations, at airports and at border crossings in a vast experiment in social engineering (alternative source). Their goal: to influence behavior and identify lawbreakers. Ms. Gan, 31 years old, had been caught on camera crossing illegally here once before, allowing the system to match her two images. Text displayed on the crosswalk screens identified her as a repeat offender. "I won't ever run a red light again," she said. China is rushing to deploy new technologies to monitor its people in ways that would spook many in the U.S. and the West. Unfettered by privacy concerns or public debate, Beijing's authoritarian leaders are installing iris scanners at security checkpoints in troubled regions and using sophisticated software to monitor ramblings on social media. By 2020, the government hopes to implement a national "social credit" system that would assign every citizen a rating based on how they behave at work, in public venues and in their financial dealings.

Lumina Desktop 1.3 Released with Own, Default Material Design Icon Themes

TrueOS and Lumina Desktop developer Tim Moore announced the release and immediate availability of Lumina Desktop 1.3.0, a significant update of the open-source desktop environment that's used by default in TrueOS.

Samsung To Launch Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea On July 7

IT Security Nachrichten vom 27.06.2017 um 16:40 Uhr | Quelle hardware.slashdot.org
South Korean news agency Yonhap reports: Samsung plans to release the refurbished edition of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 smartphone next month, industry sources said Tuesday. According to the sources, Samsung will release the smartphone under the name the Galaxy Note FE, with a price tag below 700,000 won (US$616). Official sales are slated to start July 7. The South Korean tech giant suspended production and sales of the Galaxy Note 7 last year amid reports that some of the devices caught fire while charging. A probe revealed that the problems were due to the non-removable battery. Accordingly, the refurbished devices will have a smaller battery capacity than the originals, along with the latest software updates.

Short of IT Workers At Home, Israeli Startups Recruit Elsewhere

IT Security Nachrichten vom 27.06.2017 um 16:00 Uhr | Quelle it.slashdot.org
New submitter Alex Wilson shares a Reuters report: Driven by startups, Israel's technology industry is the fastest growing part of the economy. It accounts for 14 percent of economic output and 50 percent of exports. But a shortage of workers means its position at the cutting edge of global technology is at risk, with consequences for the economy and employment. When Alexey Chalimov founded software design firm Eastern Peak in Israel four years ago he knew he would not find the developers he needed at home. He went to Ukraine and hired 120 people to develop mobile apps and web platforms for international clients and smaller Israeli startups. "I worked for years in the Israeli market and I knew what the costs were in Israel and I knew there was a shortage of workers," he told Reuters. The government's Innovation Authority forecasts a shortage of 10,000 engineers and programmers over the next decade in a market that employs 140,000. Israel has dropped six spots in three years to 17th in the World Economic Forum's ranking of the ease of finding skilled technology employees. In the meantime, many Israeli startups are looking abroad.

An anonymous reader writes: As tech reviewers across the United States and Europe sing praises of Apple's new iPad Pro, here's what Joshua Topolsky, former editor-in-chief of The Verge and Engadget (and now with The Outline) had to say: "It [10.5-inch iPad Pro] is inferior to a laptop in almost every way, unless you like to draw. If you think you can replace you laptop with this setup: you cannot. Imagine a computer, but everything works worse than you expect. That is the new iPad. Now, I know the software is in beta, but I also know how Apple betas work. They don't massively change. I have no doubt it's a very powerful piece of hardware, and the screen is gorgeous. Garageband is a lot of fun to play with. But this doesn't COME CLOSE to replacing your laptop, even for simple things you do, like email. AND one other thing. Apple's keyboard cover is a fucking atrocity. A terrible piece of hardware. Awkward to use, poor as a cover. Okay in a pinch if you need something LIKE a keyboard. Anyhow good to know there are still Apple fanboys who get mad if you insult their products. But I don't think it's a very good product. Finally, iOS 11 is definitely a STEP in the right direction. But guys the iPad has been around forever and it still feels half-assed. I think a lot of people are willing to contort themselves around a bad UX because marketing is powerful."
