La Antártida se divide en icebergs gigantes que pueden producir desastres en el futuro del planeta
Los cambios que se producen en la conformación de la Antártida en los últimos años-superficies que se derriten o bloques de hielo que se desprenden del continente- tienen en vilo a los científicos de todo el mundo.

Liderados por un argentino, científicos descubrieron el tercer exoplaneta más cercano al Sol
Un equipo internacional de investigadores liderado por el científico argentino Rodrigo Díaz descubrió un nuevo exoplaneta, el cual se convirtió en el tercero más cercano al Sistema Solar. Denominado Gliese 11 b, orbita una estrella que se encuentra a ocho años luz del Sol, y tiene una masa que es tres veces la de la Tierra. Además de participar en las observaciones y el desarrollo del instrumento con el que se realizó el hallazgo, Díaz, astrónomo del IAFE (Instituto de Astronomía y Física del Espacio) e investigador del Conicet, llevó a cabo el análisis de datos que permitió dar con el cuerpo celeste. Otros dos argentinos fueron parte del proyecto: Melisa Hobson y Nicolás Unger…

Thousands of Android apps bypass Advertising ID to track users
Six years after it was introduced, it looks as if Android’s Advertising ID (AAID) might no longer be the privacy forcefield Google claimed it would be. New research by AppCensus has found that 18,000 Play Store apps, many with hundreds of millions of installs, appear to be sidestepping the Advertising ID system by quietly collecting additional identifiers from users’ smartphones in ways that can’t be blocked or reset…

WARNING – New Phishing Attack That Even Most Vigilant Users Could Fall For
How do you check if a website asking for your credentials is fake or legit to log in? By checking if the URL is correct? By checking if the website address is not a homograph? By checking if the site is using HTTPS? Or using software or browser extensions that detect phishing domains? Well, if you, like most Internet users, are also relying on above basic security practices to spot if that “Facebook.com” or “Google.com” you have been served with is fake or not, you may still fall victim to a newly discovered creative phishing attack and end up in giving away your passwords to hackers…

AMD Ryzen Gets 35% Performance Increase in WoW’s Latest Patch
Love it or loathe it, World of Warcraft remains one of the most successful MMOs of all time, however as far as hardware goes, it’s always had one massive limitation, and that’s CPU utilization. Unfortunately it’s a game that has forever suffered from a lack of multi-threaded support, and it’s only recently in Battle For Azeroth, WoW’s latest expansion, that we’ve finally seen improvements occur for those with more than four cores. Indeed patch 8.1, Tides of Vengeance, has substantially improved performance for those gaming at 1080p, particularly on Ryzen processors. AMD reports that you can see anywhere up to a 35% improvement in frame rates at 1080p at lvl10 image quality settings, when using DX12 in the latest patch…
