An IBM Breakthrough Ensures Silicon Will Keep Shrinking

An IBM-led group of researchers have detailed a breakthrough transistor design, one that will enable processors to continue their Moore’s Law march toward smaller, more affordable iterations. Better still? They achieved it not with carbon nanotubes or some other theoretical solution, but with an inventive new process that actually works, and should scale up to the demands of mass manufacturing within several years.

IT brings down BA and backlogs flights around the world

IT brings down BA and backlogs flights around the world

Due to IT issues at British Airways, flights in to and out of Heathrow and Gatwick Airports were seriously delayed. These delays echoed around the world as flights were back-logged and even cancelled. According to BA’s CEO Alex Cruz, the problem was caused by a power surge / power-supply and no cyber attack is thought to have been carried out. It’s pretty clear there will be in-depth investigations both by BA and likely a government inquiry as to why the national carrier was brought to a standstill.

During the worst of the outage, stranded customers were encouraged to seek updates on BA’s Twitter account.

The outage affected many systems including bookings, re-bookings, call-center, check-in, website and more. In short all of BA’s customer facing technologies seem to have been affected.

Here are two stories that really caught my attention this week.

An anonymous malware researcher inadvertently helped stop the spread of a global cyberattack that hit at least 150 countries.

The 22-year-old researcher, who goes by the name MalwareTech, has become an internet hero for their efforts to stem the spread of the WannaCry ransomware. MalwareTech, who is based in the U.K., did not disclose their identity or gender to CNN. MalwareTech published a blog post early Saturday morning detailing how they stopped the spread of this ransomware. Read the story here

It’s official: Most password-strength requirements are dumb

You must use at least one uppercase letter, a symbol, and a number. Or, wait, maybe not. ccording to the experts at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), some of the password-strength requirements drilled into our skulls over the years are actually not that helpful.

What’s worse, they may be counterproductive. As such, the institute issued a new draft of security guidelines on May 11, 2017, aimed at security professionals and recommending several significant changes to the password requirements we’ve come to accept as a necessary part of life.
