There’s a rapidly growing arms race between cyber defenders and cyber criminals, as advancements in cybersecurity technologies and practices are matched by sophisticated cyber criminals wielding novel techniques and methods.In order to better understand and prepare for the current state of this ongoing battle between defenders and attackers, we need to take a look at the common hacking trends in cyberspace as well as some best practices security professionals can employ to be sure that their networks are prepared for the new age of cyber crime.Perhaps the most pronounced trend noticed throughout 2019 is the rise in “island hopping,” with a recent Carbon Black study finding that of today’s cyber attacks utilise the technique.This should be a concerning trend for us all, as it implies that even if an organisation has robust enough security to stand up to an attack, a lack of such a security posture on the part of the organisations they do business with can still leave them at risk.With network-based island hopping, attackers infiltrate one network for the purpose of “hopping” onto an affiliate network.Recently, this has commonly come in the form of attackers targeting an organisation’s managed security services provider (MSSP) to move through their network connections.

Source code, pipelines and boiling frogsInterview While many cloudy companies aim for four nines of uptime, it was four ones for GitLab today as the source shack celebrated the release of version 11.11 with a chat with The Register.Helpfully coinciding with Kubecon, the gang has emitted a release aimed at the orchestration technology.Users of the self-managed incarnation of GitLab (running it on-premises or in the public cloud) can now provision a cluster at instance level, with all projects in the instance making use of it for deployments.While Kubernetes integration is a crowdpleaser at Kubecon, at least as useful is the arrival of a new executor to the GitLab Runner for Docker Containers on Windows, bringing to an end the hokey practice of using the shell executor to make things happen.Marin Jankovski, an engineering manager at GitLab, described the Windows functionality as "amazing", defining a Runner as "a binary that you set up on any of your machines and you can execute any sort of code that you want."

For the last year, T-Mobile and Sprint have been telling anyone who’ll listen that their planned $26 billion merger will bring some incredible benefits to American consumers.To hear the companies tell it, the industry’s latest super-union will result in faster speeds, broader broadband deployment, and a dramatic boost in well-paying American jobs.But if you’ve seen telecom mergers go through this process before, there’s plenty of reason to be skeptical.Consolidation tends to make prices higher, connectivity worse, and customer service even more terrible.“The construction of this network and the delivery of such high-speed wireless services to the vast majority of Americans would substantially benefit consumers and our country as a whole,” the FCC claimed.The deal still needs to be approved by the Department of Justice, which has shown growing skepticism, but as far as FCC boss Ajit Pai is concerned, T-Mobile’s promises are money in the bank.

In addition to Ampere, Kelvin, Mol and Co., the kilogram also is now defined by a natural constant.In concrete terms, this means that the original kilogram, which has been the measure of all things for 130 years, has now served its purpose in Paris.This is made possible by the single crystals grown from the highly enriched isotopic silicon-28 at the Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ).Now the system officially came into force on 20 May 2019, the World Metrology Day.The IKZ played a decisive role in replacing the almost 130-year-old artificial object of the original kilogram, because the structurally perfect crystals of isotopically-pure silicon-28 (Si-28, enrichment up to 99.9995 %) grown at the IKZ were of decisive importance for this project.From this relation, the value of the Avogadro constant could be derived with unprecedented precision and thus used as a fundamental natural constant for the definition of the kilogram, since the Plank constant could be determined more precisely with the help of the Avogadro constant.

Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine have found a way to charge up the fight against bacterial infections using electricity.Work conducted in the laboratories of the Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering, Chandan Sen, PhD and Sashwati Roy, PhD has led to the development of a dressing that uses an electric field to disrupt biofilm infection.Their findings were recently published in the high-impact journal "Annals of Surgery."Bacterial biofilms are thin, slimy films of bacteria that form on some wounds, including burns or post-surgical infections, as well as after a medical device, such as a catheter, is placed in the body.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 65 percent of all infections are caused by bacteria with this biofilm phenotype, while the National Institutes of Health estimates that number is closer to 80 percent.Researchers at IU School of Medicine are the first to study the practice of using an electric field-based dressing to treat biofilms rather than antibiotics.

After announcing that they were launching a managed blockchain service late last year, Amazon Web Services is now opening that service up for general availability.It was only about five months ago that AWS chief executive Andy Jassy announced that the company was reversing course on its previous dismissal of blockchain technologies and laid out a new service it would develop on top of open source frameworks like Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum.“Customers want to use blockchain frameworks like Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum to create blockchain networks so they can conduct business quickly, with an immutable record of transactions, but without the need for a centralized authority.However, they find these frameworks difficult to install, configure, and manage,” said Rahul Pathak, General Manager, Amazon Managed Blockchain at AWS, in a statement.“Amazon Managed Blockchain takes care of provisioning nodes, setting up the network, managing certificates and security, and scaling the network.Customers can now get a functioning blockchain network set up quickly and easily, so they can focus on application development instead of keeping a blockchain network up and running.”

Blackmagic external GPU review: A very Apple graphics solutionIn addition to providing software support for eGPUs, Apple has developed what is more or less its official-ish eGPU solution, in much the same that a couple of LG's monitors have been Apple's recommended external displays for a while now.The company did so by partnering with hardware-maker Blackmagic Design, an Australia-based company that specializes in products for video professionals.The first eGPU from Blackmagic included an AMD Radeon Pro 580 and was priced at $699.We reviewed it late last summer and found that—while it was quiet and easy-to-use, and the GPU was a big upgrade over the integrated graphics in many Macs—we wished a higher-end GPU option was offered for creative professionals and hardcore gamers who needed more.As noted already, the most important spec to consider here is the GPU itself: a Radeon RX Vega 56 with 8GB of HBM2 memory.
