Ukraine’s Kyivstar Says It Faces ‘Powerful’ Cyberattack

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, finance, mobile phones

Ukraine’s largest mobile phone operator said Russia was most likely behind a “powerful” cyberattack that disrupted phone and internet services Tuesday for about 24 million people in the country.

The cyberattack, the largest to strike Ukraine since Russia’s invasion began nearly two years ago, took down ATMs and digital banking services, disabled some air raid sirens, and hampered broader cellular service across Ukraine.

“This is definitely a cyberattack and the probability that Russian entities are behind it is very close to 100%,” Oleksandr Komarov, chief executive officer of Kyivstar GSM JSC, told Bloomberg by phone.

Microsoft Outlook was reportedly targeted over 10,000 times this summer by a single threat actor, which is believed to be aligned with Russia.

Cybersecurity company Proofpoint recently unveiled its research announcing that a group they call TA422 (or Forest Blizzard, Pawn Storm, Fancy Bear, and BlueDelta) was seen attempting daily hacking into the same accounts. It seems that this is a continuation of an earlier campaign by TA422 against various organizations in Europe and North America. US intelligence links the group to its Russian counterpart, the GRU.

Diamond-stretching technique makes qubits more stable and controllable

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, energy, quantum physics

Researchers are claiming a breakthrough in quantum communications, thanks to a new diamond-stretching technique they say greatly increases the temperatures at which qubits remain entangled, while also making them microwave-controllable.

Quantum networking is an emerging field that uses weird quantum phenomena to send and receive information. These networks will be impossible to hack, and will use quantum entanglement to cover large distances, creating pairs of qubits which mirror each other’s quantum state without any physical connection.

Diamond-based qubits are capable of maintaining their state of entanglement for a decent length of time – but only provided they’re kept incredibly cold – just a hair above absolute zero. That limits their usefulness, because it’d mean you’d need a giant, energy-intensive cooling apparatus at every node of your quantum network.

Generative AI And The Future Of Content Creation

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, information science, robotics/AI

The explosive growth of generative AI over the last year has been truly phenomenal. Kick-started by the public release of ChatGPT (was it really only a year ago?), it’s now everywhere. Keen to ride the wave, every app from Office to eBay has been adding generative capabilities, and growing numbers of us are finding uses for it in our everyday and professional lives.

Given its nature, it’s not surprising that content creators, in particular, have found it a powerful addition to their toolset. Marketing agencies, advertising creatives, news organizations and social media influencers have been among the most enthusiastic early adopters.

While it brings great opportunities for improving efficiency and automating manual, repetitive elements of creative work, it also throws up significant challenges. Issues around copyright, spam content, hallucination, the formulaic nature of algorithmic creation and bias all need to be considered by professionals planning on adopting it into their workflow.

U.S, U.K. And 16 Other Nations Agree On AI Security Guidelines

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, robotics/AI

Eighteen countries have signed an agreement on AI safety, based on the principle that it should be secure by design.

The Guidelines for Secure AI System Development, led by the U.K.’s National Cyber Security Centre and developed with the U.S.’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, are touted as the first global agreement of their kind.

They’re aimed mainly at providers of AI systems that are using models hosted by an organization, or that are using external application programming interfaces. The aim is to help developers make sure that cybersecurity is baked in as an essential pre-condition of AI system safety and integral to the development process, from the start and throughout.
