Researchers have conducted a review of the security holes that exist in popular smart-light brands.
Researchers at the University of Arizona are developing a fresh approach to cybersecurity modeled on the human central nervous system. The new method will aim to detect and neutralize cyber-threats in their earliest stages before they have a chance to do any serious damage. Inspiration for the project came from human biological responses; for example, how the body's immune system fights a virus and how a person will instinctively pull their fingers away from a burning hot surface before their brain has even received the message that the body is at risk of harm.
New research has found that only a quarter of Americans know that surfing the internet in private browsing mode only prevents other users of the same computer from seeing what you've been up to online.
Prime factors in the changing structure of the face include a growing brain and adaptations to respiratory and energy demands, but most importantly, changes in the jaw, teeth, and face responded to shifts in diet and feeding behavior. We are, or we evolved to be, what we eat.
The human brain can unconsciously respond to changes in Earth's magnetic fields, according to a team of geoscientists and neurobiologists.
Delivering bad news is already a difficult task, and being seen as unlikable only adds to that struggle. And because people aren’t keen on accepting advice from those they dislike, they might miss out on important help.
Studies suggest a connection between mental and physical effort: both require cognitive control. The reason such control is essential in demanding athletic training, they suggest, is that to maintain physical effort and reach a distant goal requires cognitive control.
Monsanto adopted a multi-pronged strategy to target Carey Gillam, a Reuters journalist who investigated the company’s weedkiller and its links to cancer.
As we find it harder to employ security staff, so it becomes practical to outsource cyber-security to those who have managed to snag themselves some experts.
Privacy laws, like any other infosecurity control, have exploitable vulnerabilities. For social engineering purposes, GDPR has a number of real benefits. Firstly, companies only have a month to reply to requests and face fines of up to 4 per cent of revenues if they don't comply, so fear of failure and time are strong motivating factors.
Concern grows that criminals could use false video and audio to target businesses.
An experienced accountant fell for a scammer mirroring Metro Bank’s security and customer service.

Spending at least two hours a week in nature may be a crucial threshold for promoting health and wellbeing, according to a new large-scale study.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have learned that the effect of exercise may differ depending on the time of day it is performed. In mice they demonstrate that exercise in the morning results in an increased metabolic response in skeletal muscle, while exercise later in the day increases energy expenditure for an extended period of time.
Fritz Haber was the driving force behind the German use of chemical weapons during WWI.
Researchers found that our brains may solidify the memories of new skills we just practiced a few seconds earlier by taking a short rest. The results highlight the critically important role rest may play in learning.
Finding suggests that mobile phones are potentially increasingly affecting aspects of daytime functioning due to lack of sleep and increasing dereliction of responsibilities.
It turns out that the processes of both creating art and experiencing beauty net neural benefits.
Researchers are finding that brain changes that occur after a single workout are predictive of what happens with sustained physical training over time.
