Itrsquo;s 8:00 a.m. and I get a call from a client.
It sounds like the workloads that the CIO had IT move to public cloud are not performing well.

The data, by the way, was left on-premises, so all database calls are being made across the open internet.Can you guess whatrsquo;s wrong here?[ Learn all about the cloud at InfoWorld.
Start with the basics: What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now.

Then learn what is IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and what is PaaS (platform as a service). ]
In this case, the client admitted that the separation of the application and the database by 3,000 miles was a key mistake, and it was willing to redo the implementation. Obviously, that meant more costs, risk, and time. However, the client got a workable workload in the end.

And a valuable lesson learned.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
In one of our previous articles, we analyzed the NeutrinoPOS banker as an example of a constantly evolving malware family.

A week after publication, this Neutrino modification delivered up a new malicious program classified by Kaspersky Lab as Trojan-Banker.Win32.Jimmy.

In this research we'll be revisiting the USB port – this time in attempts to intercept user authentication data on the system that a microcomputer is connected to.

As we discovered, this type of attack successfully allows an intruder to retrieve user authentication data – even when the targeted system is locked.
As part of this report, we analyze the collected data in our quest for the answer to the question of what interests the current generation of children online.
“Competition platformsrdquo; offer interesting ways to pull together communities to focus on solving a problem.

There are several out there.

For example, Kaggle provides access to development tools and thenbsp;computenbsp;cycles to run algorithms.

They also have some well-written tutorials and training that I highly encourage you to try. (My wife got lost in the analysis of survival rates for passengers of the Titanic – annbsp;excellent introduction to machine learningnbsp;to do at your own pace.) There is currently a Kaggle competition to develop an algorithm that will help health care workers in rural parts of the world prevent cervical cancer by applying the right treatment in high-risk pre-cancerous situations.

Biometrics like fingerprint readers, iris scanners, and facial recognition are either the solution to passwords’ unmanageability or a fool’s-gold technology that will compromise us all.

Both and neither are true.The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 introduces facial recognition to unlock the smartphone, becoming the fourth unlock option for Samsung’s flagship device, in addition to fingerprint reading, iris scanning, and good ol’ manually entered passwords.

And mere days after its introduction, someone has already fooled the Galaxy S8’s facial recognition by showing the device a picture of the person.

That would be an easy way to unlock someone else’s phone without their permission. (An earlier Google facial-recognition technology in 2011’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich had the same flaw, by the way.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
You know the violence, but there were text-adventures, skiing, space, and ants(!) too.
Google Home users got a surprise on Thursday when their virtual assistants cheerily mentioned that the live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” is opening in theaters this weekend.The ad seems to pop up when users ask for a rundown of their day, which kicks off the Home’s “My Day” feature.

That feature is supposed to offer users information about the weather, their calendars and relevant news.

But at the end of the rundown, the Google Assistant offered the following unsolicited tidbit, according to a video posted to Twitter by Bryson Meunier :[ Review: Microsoft Teams fails in its debut. | Modern meetings: How to share your screen to your conference TV. ]“By the way, Disney’s live action ‘Beauty and The Beast’ opens today,” it says. “In this version of the story, Belle is the inventor instead of Maurice.

That rings truer, if you ask me.

For some more movie fun, ask me something about Belle.”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
