Update now: Latest Nvidia driver fixes dangerous security vulnerabilities
The eight vulnerabilities can give attackers complete control and access to data. Bottom line: The latest Nvidia drivers have been discovered to patch eight serious security flaws, which, if exploited, can lead to denial of distribution, privilege escalation, code execution, and sensitive information disclosure. While these exploits require local access and software using them doesn’t exist in the wild, the Common Vulnerability Scoring System rates their deadliness as “high” so it’s best not to dally with updating your system…

Update now: Latest Nvidia driver fixes dangerous security vulnerabilities
Denial of service attacks can render the computer or the GPU inoperable, either by forcing a crash or by flooding it with more information than it can handle.

Google reveals “high severity” flaw in macOS kernel
Google’s Project Zero team is well-known for its knack of finding security flaws in the company’s own products as well as those manufactured by other firms. Its members locate flaws in software, privately report them to the manufacturers, and give them 90 days to resolve the problem before publicly disclosing it…

Singaporean Retailer Lists Purported Ryzen 3000 Pricing [ Rock Bottom Prices ! Yeah ! ]
Singaporean retailer Bizgram recently published a product catalog featuring some surprising newcomers: the Ryzen 3000 series. These CPUs have not been officially announced yet, although these specific model names have been leaked before. AMD has explicitly said “mid-2019” for the release date of the new CPUs, so to see a retailer already listing them is very curious, though expected when it comes to upcoming CPUs…

Cluster reveals inner workings of earth’s cosmic particle accelerator

Cluster reveals inner workings of earth’s cosmic particle accelerator
Using unprecedented in-situ data from ESA’s Cluster mission, scientists have shed light on the ever-changing nature of Earth’s shield against cosmic radiation, its bow shock, revealing how this particle accelerator transfers and redistributes energy throughout space. The new study used observations from two of the Cluster mission’s four spacecraft, which flew in tight formation through Earth’s bow shock, sitting just 7 kilometres apart…

Atmospheric methane is rocketing and the climate change implications are huge

Atmospheric methane is rocketing and the climate change implications are huge
A new study has revealed that atmospheric methane levels increased substantially over the last four years, raising questions over whether the Paris Agreement goals can be met. According to the research, the increase in atmospheric methane started in 2007, but accelerated ‘very rapidly’ starting in 2014, persisting at that clipped rate through 2017. The reasons for this surprise increase remain unclear…

It can be either death or glory when two galaxies collide

It can be either death or glory when two galaxies collide
Images collected from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope are shedding light on the dramatic conditions that arise when two galaxies collide. Due to the strong gravity resulting from the large mass of a galaxy, galaxies are drawn together and eventually collide. Sometimes this results in one of the galaxies being annihilated, as scientists believe will happen when the Large Magellanic Cloud collides with our Milky Way in two billion years’ time. But at other times, the two galaxies merge together to create one huge galaxy…

Where Are All the ‘Sparticles’ That Could Explain What’s Wrong with the Universe?

Where Are All the ‘Sparticles’ That Could Explain What’s Wrong with the Universe?
The governing theory of particle physics explains everything about the subatomic world … except for the parts that it doesn’t. And unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of flattering adjectives that can be applied to the so-called Standard Model. Built up bit by bit over the course of decades, this theory of fundamental physics is best described as ungainly, hodgepodge and MacGyver-ed together with pieces of string and chewing gum…

BeagleBone AI Raspberry Pi-Style Dev Board Packs Potent Computer Vision Engine

BeagleBone AI Raspberry Pi-Style Dev Board Packs Potent Computer Vision Engine
The Raspberry Pi Foundation may have popularized the single-board PC concept, but it is by no means the only entry in the field. There have been many challengers to the Raspberry Pi throne, including most recently the Orange Pi 3. Today we have a new offering called the BeagleBone AI. You can think of the BeagleBone AI as a faster and much more feature-packed version of the BeagleBone Black (which can be had for around $50). The BeagleBone AI is compatible – mechanically, header support – with the BeagleBone Black, but incorporates a beefier Texas Instruments AM5729 SoC (ARM Cortex-A15 based). With that comes 1GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMC flash, Wi-Fi, GbE, a USB-A host and USB-C for power…

China calificó de “grave suceso político” la decisión de la justicia canadiense de iniciar la extradición a Estados Unidos de la directora financiera de Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, y le exigió que frene de inmediato un proceso que podría agravar las relaciones entre ambas naciones [ Y la venganza oriental será terrible, y de largo plazo… Que se pongan el cinturón de seguridad los norteamericanos, porque va a ser movido. ]…

A 12 centímetros por píxel, con esa resolución puedes ver ya el polo norte del asteroide Bennu
Bennu es un asteroide próximo a la Tierra de unos 490 metros de diámetro. Se encuentra aproximadamente a 114 millones de kilómetros. Los científicos lo conocen desde 1999. La NASA lanzó la sonda OSIRIS-REx, cuya misión es recoger muestras de la superficie del asteroide. La cámara MapCam a bordo de la nave obtuvo la imagen el 20 de febrero en órbita alrededor del asteroide desde una distancia de 1.800 metros. A esta distancia, cada píxel cubre aproximadamente 12 centímetros de la superficie de Bennu. La podéis ver a continuación…

NGC 3079, an edge-on spiral galaxy located about 67 million light-years from Earth, contains two ‘superbubbles.’ New observations from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory show that a cosmic particle accelerator in this galaxy is producing ultra-energetic particles in the rims of the superbubbles. These particles can be much more energetic than those created by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN…

TensorFlow 1.13.1 surges forward with Python 3.7 support and enhanced core

TensorFlow 1.13.1 surges forward with Python 3.7 support and enhanced core
With the TensorFlow Dev Summit just a week away, the team behind the popular library for numerical computation has released TensorFlow 1.13.1 bringing its users Python 3.7 support and a slightly reworked project structure. The latter is due to the goal of dissolving contrib in time for the next major release. For the 1.13.1 release this meant moving TensorFlow Lite, which is meant for mobile and embedded devices, as well as the Nvidia Collective Communication Library (NCCL), to the core library. TensorFlow Lite modules can therefore be found under tf.lite now…

Here’s why the US is terrified of one Chinese company controlling the world’s 5G networks [ Horror; Horror: A dying empire tells us what to do ! ]
US officials stepped up their rhetoric against Huawei, just as the Chinese firm made a big pitch about its 5G business at the mobile industry’s flagship gathering.At the Mobile World Congress, the top US cyber official, Robert Strayer, asked European governments to consider the “threat” posed by using Huawei’s 5G equipment in their mobile networks. Huawei shot back, and said the US also had surveillance systems. Security experts told Business Insider that the US was afraid of yielding control of telecoms infrastructure to Chinese firms that might have to kowtow to laws from an undemocratic regime. [ Ahaha ! As if US were democratic !!! Remember Snowden ]…
