If you're concerned about cybercrime or ransomware, a few simple precautions can set your mind at ease.Two security firms recently published the results of surveys that showed people may worry about cybercrime, but they don t do much to protect themselves, which leaves them vulnerable.A study by U.K.-based Sophos, and another survey by Radware asked different questions about cybercrime and ransomware, but in each case found that, unlike businesses, individuals are all over the place when it comes to actually preparing for and preventing cyberattacks, and even what they d do if their data was held hostage by ransomware.In the Sophos survey, the company found people in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are more concerned about cybercrime than more personal physical attacks.Regarding computer security issues, 63 percent worried about losing money, 61 percent about having their computers hijacked, and 58 percent feared losing control of their computers.In contrast, 46 were concerned with physical assault or stolen cars, 52 percent about home robberies, and 56 percent about terrorism.

For 80 years, scientists have puzzled over the way galaxies and other cosmic structures appear to gravitate toward something they cannot see.Instead of hordes of invisible particles, dark matter is an interplay between ordinary matter and dark energy, Verlinde said.Working within this framework, Verlinde traces dark energy to a property of these underlying qubits that supposedly encode the universe.This 30-year-old theory makes an ad hoc tweak to the famous inverse-square law of gravity in Newton s and Einstein s theories in order to explain some of the phenomena attributed to dark matter.Many experts have called Verlinde s paper compelling but hard to follow.In a new analysis of galaxies published on Nov. 9 in Physical Review Letters, three astrophysicists led by Stacy McGaugh of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, have strengthened MOND s case against dark matter.

Human rights groups from around the world have delivered more than a million signatures to the White House, asking President Barack Obama to pardon Edward Snowden, the man who blew the whistle on warrantless government surveillance of all Americans.Given the political climate, the timing couldn t be more urgent.Once Donald Trump comes into office, no such pardon will be possible.In fact, Trump has suggested Snowden should be executed.Snowden can be viewed by patriotic Americans as a fellow patriot, a whistleblower, a dissident, or as a traitor.I asked Obama to pardon Snowden over the holidays.To me, this is a tech story, not just a political one.Americans have to be more aware about protecting our data, our privacy, and our freedoms.

In the bitter patent battle between the Broad Institute and U.C.Berkely that reached a courtroom climax last month, both institutions are duking it out for the right to claim that they invented CRISPR-Cas9, along with the right to reap millions and millions for licensing their discovery.The patent battle has temporarily slowed scientific research that makes use of CRISPR, in addition to resurfacing a timeworn argument over the place of patents in academic science.The patent battle, which is awaiting a decision by judges, involves the first CRISPR enzyme every successfully used to edit mammalian genes, Cas9.This will not be the legal decision that is going to decide who owns this technology, Jacob Sherkow, a patent law professor at NYU, told me.While CRISPR-Cas9 is often heralded for making gene-editing as simple as cutting and pasting, the reality is that it s nowhere near that precise—and so scientists have gone hunting for alternatives to Cas9.
