And so, on Sunday, the cyber thieves behind the recent HBO breach leaked several unreleased episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which was scheduled to return in October after six years off the air.Following the Curb Your Enthusiasm leak, HBO effectively issued a “no comment” statement to the press:We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released.That’s a game we’re not going to participate in.Transparency with our employees, partners, and the creative talent that works with us has been our focus throughout this incident and will remain our focus as we move forward.To sum things up, HBO is really weary of this hacker business.

Tilastokeskuksen mukaan rakennusyritysten liikevaihdon kasvu on hiipunut hieman viime vuoden hirmuluvuista.Rakennusyritysten liikevaihto kasvoi maalis-toukokuussa 8,7 prosenttia, eli hieman vähemmän kuin vastaavalla ajanjaksolla vuotta aiemmin.Tuolloin kasvua kertyi 10,1 prosenttia.Pudotus oli seurausta maa- ja vesirakentamisen sekä erikoistuneen rakentamisen kasvuvauhdin taittumisesta.Talonrakentamisen kierrokset kiihtyivät keväällä, ja kasvua kirjattiin nyt jopa 12,8 prosenttia.Vuotta aiemmin lukema oli 11,4 prosenttia.

It's the scenario every fighter pilot dreads.They forget their emergency drills, or can't recall their call sign.It's an insidious condition whose onset makes it difficult to take the simple steps to fight back: turn on a backup oxygen supply and quickly drop to an altitude where the thicker atmosphere makes it easier to breathe.Though the cause of hypoxia is clear enough—not enough oxygen—no one's quite sure why the advanced systems designed to keep pilots breathing don't always work properly, or how to prevent problems.That's especially daunting for pilots who already deal with a hostile work environment.They fly strapped in tight inside a tiny cockpit, encased in bulky suits that make it hard to move, pulling up to nine Gs, often high above altitudes where humans can comfortably breathe.
I'm just pointing to the facts.Before Google even opened its doors on Monday, people were calling for the head of whoever had written the so-called "manifesto".And then came the interwebs explosion, which followed the nasty pattern we have all unfortunately grown used to this past year: denunciation followed by demands for immediate action, followed by a counter-attack, followed by immediate taking of sides and as much unpleasantness as everyone can muster.It seems that these days, we don't even wait on TV pundits to jam any issue into a left-right political lens.Pretty much everyone who hadn't pulled into the pitched online battle felt that Google erred by firing Damore.It should have been immediately obvious to Google executives that if it fired Damore straight away, without some kind of process, that his politically charged writing would become that week's focus of righteous indignation from the fringes.
Above: While issues topics like trade and tax reform are driving the national conversation, they aren't keeping entrepreneurs up at night.It feels as though 2017 is likely to go down in history as the year that lasted about a decade in our collective minds.But even with engagement at an all-time high, headlines are seemingly focused on just a few areas:We’ve seen heavy-handed immigration policies struck down in court, twice.The full report is available here, but some basic demographic characteristics of the community illustrate how emblematic they are of today’s modern American entrepreneur:Geographically, respondents were spread across the country, with a regional breakdown that’s representative of the population breakdown, and even slightly more rural than the general population.
Champions of Silicon Valley’s efforts to make the technology industry more inclusive of women and minorities are facing an unwelcome reality: not all employees have bought into the diversity push.The recent manifesto criticizing Google’s initiatives wasn’t the first time Danielle Brown, Google’s new head of diversity, had encountered opposition.Previously, when Ms. Brown had the same role at Intel Corp., employees...
The former Google engineer behind a controversial memo on diversity efforts is standing by his views and says the company is trying to smear his reputation.James Damore, who was fired by the search giant on Monday, defended his views during an interview Wednesday with Bloomberg TV.His 10-page manifesto sparked outrage from Google employees after being posted to an internal network.It argued biology prevents women from being as successful as men in the tech industry and criticized the company as having a "left leaning" bias.Instead, "the distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership."Damore said that while some Google employees expressed support for him, it's not surprising no one from the executive ranks did so.
But as mainstream journalists across the globe reached out to him for interviews this week, Damore largely ignored the queries and instead selected two rightwing YouTube personalities to make his first, expansive comments on the international firestorm he has ignited.Damore – who argued in his memo that “biological” differences between men and women contribute to the gender gap in the tech industry – gave lengthy video interviews to Stefan Molyneux and Jordan B Peterson, who both have large followings on YouTube and have espoused anti-feminist views.(Google remains overwhelmingly white and male, with women occupying just 20% of the technical workforce and African Americans at 1%, according to company statistics).Molyneux, host of the Freedomain Radio, billed as the “largest philosophy conversation in the world”, has posted videos titled Why Feminists Hate Men: What They Won’t Tell You!He made headlines last year when he hosted an infamous internet troll, Charles Johnson, who was previously removed from Twitter after seeking donations to “take out” a Black Lives Matter activist.Peterson has claimed that the “idea of white privilege is absolutely reprehensible” and “dangerous” and has criticized the concept of “safe spaces” at colleges and women and gender studies.

If you’ve ever wracked your brain trying to think up a password with the requisite mix of numbers, exclamation marks and other special characters, we’ve got news for you:Mind you, it’s not your fault.Security best-practice guidelines going back more than a decade have recommended resetting passwords every 90 days and creating cryptic strings of characters, rather than easy-to-remember words, as the ideal password strategy.But according to a report in the Wall Street Journal on Monday, the person responsible for this has had a change of mind.“Much of what I did I now regret,” Bill Burr, the 72-year-old author of the annoyingly familiar password rules, told The Wall Street Journal.Burr’s guidelines — first published in 2003 — suggested that to optimise security, passwords must be reset every 90 days, and contain a mix of an uppercase letter, number, and special character.
The company has announced a new manufacturing plant in California and Krause is taking this opportunity to distance Faraday from its initial source of funding, the presently imploding Chinese consumer electronics company LeEco.Instead, what we saw was a mocked-up electric hypercar, a garish machine that seemed unlikely to ever see the light of day.The FF 91 looked like it had the tech and performance to actually be a player on the global scene and compete against cars such as the Tesla Model X.But already there were dark clouds forming on the horizon, and it was rumored that the company had to suspend construction of its Nevada factory to even afford the event.The sound of thunder has only grown louder following financial problems for LeEco, the Chinese company that provided much of Faraday's initial funding.LeEco's CEO Jia Yueting (also known as YT) stepped down, the company cut 70 percent of its US workforce and it's quickly fallen further from grace, being described as a "Ponzi scheme" among other, more colorful terms.

(Reuters) — Tesla Inc on Friday lowered the base price of its Model X SUV to $79,500 and said improving margins were behind the move, which came as the automaker is ramping up production of its new lower-priced Model 3.Some analysts have been concerned that the launch of the Model 3, whose base price is $35,000, would steer some potential buyers away from the Model X SUV to that lower-priced sedan.But Chief Executive Elon Musk said earlier this week that demand had not waned for the luxury electric sport-utility vehicle.“When we launched Model X 75D, it had a low gross margin.As we’ve achieved efficiencies, we are able to lower the price and pass along more value to our customers,” Tesla in a statement on Friday announcing it had lowered the previous $82,500 starting price of the vehicle by $3,000.The most expensive version of the Model X, the P100D, with fastest acceleration and longer range, costs $145,000.
A Dutch security researchers say they have found a vulnerability in the converter to the solar panels that, in the worst case could be used by unauthorized persons to effectively shut down the electricity supply from these.Researcher Willem Westerhof says that the vulnerability found in power inverters that are connected to the internet.These converters converts direct current to alternating current and according to Westerhof would be unauthorized to take control of these converters via the internet and then turn them off.the Converters are manufactured by the leading German company SMA, and Westerhof should have reported the vulnerability to the company at the end of last year.However, this seems not to so much have happened since then, and therefore emit Westerhof now their discoveries public.The Dutch newspaper Volkskrant has written a longer story about the vulnerability of the SMA's converter and to them tell SMA that the vulnerability only affects a smaller part of their product range and that they are working to fix the problem.
This is the ideal engine swap for those who love the Beetle but need to get somewhere in a real hurry.The original Volkswagen Beetle is a masterpiece of engineering, but there’s one attribute that it sorely lacks: speed.Installing a Porsche engine no longer makes financial sense because the parts have become jaw-droppingly expensive, so tuners who want to build a fast Bug are increasingly turning towards Subaru components.A video posted on YouTube documents how to install a WRX STI engine in an unassuming 1965 Beetle.The swap is relatively straightforward because both the Beetle and the WRX STI use a flat-four engine, meaning it’s short and wide instead of tall and narrow.Simply dropping a WRX STI engine in a Beetle would create a death trap.
The Magnitude Exploit Kit is being used to deliver the Cerber ransomware, as the attackers obfuscate the codeThe Cerber ransomware is being delivered to specific countries in Asia, most notably South Korea, according to recent telemetry of the Magnitude exploit kit.That is the warning from security specialists Malwarebytes, which said that South Korea is the most impacted country amid a slew of ongoing malvertising campaigns.It should be remembered that the Magnitude exploit kit has been around for a number of years now.In 2014 it was found to be popular among cyber criminals, thanks to its high success probability and an innovative distribution model that didn’t require ‘customers’ to make a downpayment.‘Malvertising’ threats have proven to be a growing area in the cybersecurity field over the past few years as more and more sites depend on adverts for revenue.
Aktivitetsmätar-tillverkaren Fitbit har sedan länge ryktats ha en smartklocka på gång men som försenats flera gånger på grund av problem med produktionen.Men nu meddelar Fitbit själva till sina aktieägare att en smart klocka är på väg och att den kommer släppas lagom till årets julhandel rapporterar The Verge.Missa inte: Efter smartklockan – nu förväntas smarta kläder och hearbles ta överEnligt Fitbit-chefen James Park kommer smartklockan ha hälso- och fitnesstracking-funktioner, gps, fungera på en rad olika plattformar, vara vattentålig till ett djup på 50 meter och ha ett batteri som räcker i flera dagar.Exakt när smartklockan kommer dyka upp är däremot oklart men mycket tyder på sista kvartalet 2017.Namn, modelltyper och pris är också okänt i skrivande stund.
US scientists have succeeded in altering the genes of a human embryo to correct a disease-causing mutation, making it possible to prevent the defect from being passed on to future generations.The milestone, published this week in the journal Nature, was confirmed last week by Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), which collaborated with the Salk Institute and Korea’s Institute for Basic Science to use a technique known as CRISPR-Cas9 to correct a genetic mutation for a heart condition.Until now, published studies using the technique had been done in China with mixed results.To increase the success rate, his team introduced the genome editing components along with sperm from a male with the targeted gene defect during the in vitro fertilisation process.They found that the embryo used the available healthy copy of the gene to repair the mutated part.The Salk/OHSU team also found that its gene correction did not cause any detectable mutations in other parts of the genome, a major concern for gene editing.
