US Gov wants your 0-day exploits first and free using Wassenaar Arrangement

BSecurity researchers have voiced their concerns in the two weeks since the proposed rules were made public that the U.S. rules definition of intrusion software is too broad, and legitimate vulnerability research and proof-of-concept development will come under regulation. – See more at: https://threatpost.com/bug-bounties-in-crosshairs-of-proposed-us-wassenaar-rules/113204#sthash.cL00eTWJ.dpuf Source: Wassenaar, Bug Bounties and Vulnerability Rewards Programs | Threatpost | […]

Lighteater goes through BIOS owns your PC

Because people don’t every patch their BIOSes, it is extremely likely that the vast majority of systems in the wild are vulnerable to at least one known exploit. We made public the details of the new SMM “Incursion” vulnerabilities (CERT VU# 631788, reported Oct 29th), that can be found automatically from SMM dumps. We showed […]

CloneApp – backs up windows program settings so you can copy them to a fresh install.

Be paranoid: 10 terrifying extreme hacks

These extreme hacks rise above the unending morass of everyday, humdrum hacks because of what they target or because they employ previously unknown, unused, or advanced methods. They push the limit of what we security pros previously thought possible, opening our eyes to new threats and systemic vulnerabilities, all while earning the begrudging respect of […]

Scientists Just Invented the Neural Lace

A group of chemists and engineers who work with nanotechnology published a paper this month in Nature Nanotechnology about an ultra-fine mesh that can merge into the brain to create what appears to be a seamless interface between machine and biological circuitry. Called “mesh electronics,” the device is so thin and supple that it can […]

South Korean 3d printer prints thinner than red blood cell

a team of researchers at UNIST has announced that they have developed a high-resolution 3D printing technology that is capable of printing electronic circuits on plastic, metallic or magnetic nanoparticles that are curved and much flexible. According to the team, led by Prof. Jang-Ung Park (School of Materials Science and Engineering), they have succeeded in […]

Do Googles’ Neural Networks “Dream”?

Malloy Hoverbike

Better than a flying car! The Hoverbike is the result of years worth of R&D. We combined the simplicity of a motorbike and the freedom of a helicopter to create the world’s first flying motorcycle.When compared with a helicopter, the Hoverbike is cheaper, more rugged and easier to use – and represents a whole new […]
