Filing claims the CFAA blocks online researchersThe American Civil Liberties Union ACLU says the US Computer Fraud and Abuse Act CFAA should be stricken for being unconstitutional.The civil rights group said in a filing PDF to the Washington, DC, District Court that the CFAA prevents researchers and whistleblowers from carrying out their work and violates both the free speech and due process clauses in the First and Fifth Amendments.The suit, Sandvig v Lynch, asks that the courts invalidate the law, which has been the basis for hacking and computer crime prosecutions since its enaction by Congress in 1986.According to the ACLU, the CFAA illegally prevents researchers from doing their jobs by restricting activities to those approved by a product's terms of service TOS .Because the Act counts violating a TOS as "unauthorized" access, the ACLU argues that companies are able to effectively write their own criminal laws with a TOS.

Forget the disappointing refresh of Top Gear — the BBC comeback show we re most excited about seeing cross the Atlantic is Robot Wars: the classic 1990s robot beat-em-up which took the format of American Gladiators and added sparks, engineering degrees, and a bit of social awkwardness.Robot Wars is back this summer, and we ve just received our first tantalizing look at the fearsome House Robots: the intimidating likes of Matilda, Shunt, Dead Metal and Sir Killalot, who have all been recreated from scratch for the new series — using the latest materials and processes.By splitting our team of engineers into three to work on Matilda, Shunt and Dead Metal, each team worked to make their robot as mean as possible!But while nostalgia is definitely part of the Robot Wars appeal, executive producer Andrew Robertson tells Digital Trends that the show will definitely embrace the sweeping advances which have taken place in robotics over the past decade.This is all possible due to the incredible power of the batteries and reduction in size of the parts required to build the robot, Robertson says.The reason the arena is double-layered Polycarbonate is purely down to the power in these robots, and as you ll see there are many times that the arena strength is tested!

The defending Golden State Warriors had crushed them in the first two games of the NBA Finals, winning game 2 by a humiliating 33 points.And then he turned to what might seem an unusual source of inspiration: Apple founder Steve Jobs.What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die.Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept: No one wants to die.Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Following in the tradition of large-scale action games like Dynasty Warriors, players control a knight, viking, or samurai who leads an army through a massive battle, alternating between fighting hordes of weak foot soldiers, and one-and-one duels with enemy commanders.Both players can swap stances until the last possible second, so it s possible for attackers to feint, and defenders to overthink and move out of position based on the angle of a strike.Some characters will have modified abilities.If things feel like they re getting too hairy — maybe you just barely won your last duel — players can find power-ups in every level to give them an advantage.Though duels rule the day, there are other moments where your expertise can turn the tide of battle.In a level where players must defend a castle from a siege, players have to help their army repel waves of enemies, a mix of duelists and footmen, to staunch their flow into the castle.

Even if you had gotten in on some Yelp action at the end of 2015 the stock finished the year at $28.80 , you wouldn t have a lot to celebrate, unless you count basically breaking even as reason to pop some Champagne corks.But, there might be a chance that Yelp could be back on the rise.At least that s the opinion of Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley.Before the stock market opened Monday, Walmsley raised his rating on Yelp to buy from hold, and increased his price target on the online review and recommendation company s shares to $33 from $26.Yes, that s not where Yelp s shares were a year ago, but getting there would have to restore at least some faith in Yelp s direction.Walmsley said there are three signs that Yelp is getting on track.Nonetheless, we see the risk and reward as far more favorable for Yelp.There was also the surprise resignation of CFO Ron Krolik and a disappointing quarterly report in February.It was the second time this year that HP sold some of its software offerings to OpenText, after that company paid $170 million in April for set of HP s software tools used in content management.Bottom Of The Lineup:Here s a look at how some leading Silicon Valley stocks did Monday…Movin On Up: In addition to Yelp, and its gain of 5.7 percent, Barracuda Networks, NeoPhotonics, Chegg and Form Factor also advanced.In The Red: Cypress Semiconductor shares fell more than 4 percent, and losses also came from Infinera, AMD, Inphi and Servicesource International.The tech-focused Nasdaq Composite Index rose 0.8 percent to 4,837.The blue chip Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed by 0.7 percent to 17,804.And the broad-based Standard & Poor s 500 Index added 0.6 percent to close at 2,083.Quote Of The Day: I m going to take a really long nap, LeBron James, upon returning home to Akron, Ohio after leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA title over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.Sign up for the 60-Second Business Break newsletter at www.siliconvalley.com.Photo: Employees leave the Yelp offices in San Francisco in June 2014.
The country is training its brightest students, arming them with abilities to help combat real and perceived cyberthreats from its neighbour.According to Reuters, one of the country's most prestigious universities in Seoul – Korea University – offers students courses that are only identified by numbers and even allows them to keep their identities secret from the outside world, as part of the nation's Cyber Defence curriculum.A 21-year-old student named only as Noh was quoted as saying that he had always been interested in cybersecurity and computing and had enrolled into the program after his father encouragement him to do so.The cyber defence program was introduced in 2011 and offers young and gifted programmers a full scholarship in return for seven years of military services.Those interested undergo a rigorous three-day interview process, overseen by military personnel and university professors, during which the students are tested on physical abilities as well.In May, the country's ROK Air Force websites were hit by hackers, which it suspected was coordinated by its arch-enemy.
Besides Pyongyang's nuclear and rocket programs, South Korea says the North has a strong cyber army which it has blamed for a series of attacks in the past three years.NORTH'S CYBER OFFENSIVESStill, the North appears to have notched up successes in the cyber war against both the South and the United States.Last week, South Korean police said the North hacked into more than 140,000 computers at 160 South Korean companies and government agencies, planting malicious code under a long-term plan laying groundwork for a massive cyber attack against its rival.The attack was followed by online leaks of unreleased movies and emails that caused embarrassment to executives and Hollywood personalities.The course trains pupils in disciplines including hacking, mathematics, law and cryptography, with students staging mock hacking attacks or playing defense, using simulation programs donated by security firms, he said.The admission to the selective program entails three days of interviews including physical examinations, attended by military officials along with the school's professors, he said.
