When two countries begin to threaten war in 2019, it’s a safe bet that they’ve already been hacking each other’s networks. Right on schedule, three different cybersecurity firms now say they’ve watched Iran’s hackers try to gain access to a wide array of US organizations over the last few weeks, just as military tensions between the two countries rise to a breaking point—though it’s not yet clear whether those hacker intrusions are aimed at intelligence gathering, laying the groundwork for a more disruptive cyberattack, or both.
Analysts at two security firms, Crowdstrike and Dragos, tell WIRED that they’ve seen a new campaign of targeted phishing emails sent to a variety of US targets last week from a hacker group known by the names APT33, Magnallium, or Refined Kitten, and widely believed to be working in the service of the Iranian government. Dragos [...]read more
Nugoli di fastidiosi moscerini, che si attaccano ai vestiti e s’infilano fra i capelli. Se prima erano le zanzare a turbare l’estate in città, oggi c’è un nuovo spauracchio. E le discussioni impazzano sui social network, con l’hashtag #mosceriniovunque e la gente che su Facebook, nei gruppi milanesi e di molti altri comuni dell’hinterland, s’interroga: «Anche da voi ci sono nuvole di moscerini?». E la risposta è immancabilmente sì: dal centro alla periferia, i fastidiosi insetti hanno invaso Milano e non occorre recarsi nei parchi, basta fare una passeggiata sul marciapiede, una corsa a piedi, una pedalata, un giro in motorino per ritrovarsi il vestito o il casco pieno di bestiole. Ma cosa ha provocato una presenza così numerosa? Sono insetti pericolosi per la salute? L’Ats, da questo punto di vista, sgombra il campo dai complottismi che si leggono in rete su attacchi di panico per improbabili «moscerini killer». I moscerini, precisa l’azienda [...]read more
Mark your calendars, the future of VR is coming on September 25, 2019. That’s the day Oculus Connect 6 will kick off at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center according to a ‘save the date’ email sent to TechRadar.
The big highlight of this year’s show, says Oculus, will be the unveiling of a new VR game from Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind the popular battle royale game Apex Legends and the Titanfall series. The game was announced at OC4 back in 2017, and is now ready to be shown off for the first time at this year’s event.
Besides the new game, Oculus hasn’t said what else will be at this year’s event, but it seems likely that we’ll hear more about upcoming games for the VR maker’s Oculus Quest headset, as well as the next update to Oculus Rift’s software.
At the last event, Oculus unveiled Quest but decided to save the announcement of its Oculus Rift S headset for the Game Developers Conference in March.
Oculus says it will share more details on the [...]read more
NASA’s very own free-floating Companion Cube equivalent took its own first tentative “steps” in space today, demonstrating its ability to rotate on its own in zero gravity inside the International Space Station. The robot, called “Bumble” and one of a series of Astrobee robots that NASA developed to work along with astronauts on the ISS, is the first ever to fly on its own in space.
Bumble’s first flight wouldn’t necessarily wow at an airshow — the robot essentially flew a foot forward and rotated a bit. But they’re important basic maneuvers in terms of making sure the robot’s propulsion system is working and tuned correctly. Eventually, the plan is for these to operate autonomously and do some basic maintenance work, as well as support experiments, so it needs to be operating exactly as intended before it starts freely sharing space with tender human astronauts.
The Astrobee line currently counts three individual robots among its members, including Bumble, Honey (also [...]read more
Go on Keanu, make our dreams come true (Picture: Rex) Keanu Reeves may be set to join Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster franchise, with Marvel bosses confirming they are ‘in talks’ with the star about him becoming a member of the MCU.
Marvel fans have long hoped that Keanu, 54, would join the Marvel Cinematic Universe because, frankly, it’s probably one of the few things he hasn’t conquered in Hollywood.
Our hopes and dreams may be coming true though, as Marvel boss Kevin Feige revealed he is in talks with the studio.
Speaking at a Spider-Man: Far From Home press conference, Kevin told Comic Book: ‘We talk to him for almost every film we make.
‘We talk to Keanu Reeves about. I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.’
Go on Keanu, do it for the fans.
Kevin also compared Keanu to Jake Gyllenhaal, whom they held ‘multiple’ talks with before he signed on for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
