Kaspersky Lab Accuses Microsoft of Aggressive Attitude Towards Endpoint Security Firms With Windows 10



Kaspersky Lab believes Microsoft is abusing its dominant position to force users to switch to Microsoft’s own Defender anti-virus product.On Thursday November 10, the Russian Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) announced that it was investigating Microsoft following a complaint from endpoint security firm Kaspersky Lab.

AI predicts outcome of human rights cases

A research project has found that an AI could accurately predict the outcome of legal cases nearly 80% of the time.

An artificial intelligence system has correctly predicted the outcomes of hundreds of cases heard at the European Court of Human Rights, researchers have claimed.
The AI predicted the verdicts to an accuracy of 79%, according to the scientists involved.

AI is increasingly being used in fields such as journalism, law and accountancy.
But critics said no AI would be able to understand the nuances of a legal case.
The study, which was conducted by researchers at University College London and the universities of Sheffield and Pennsylvania, does not spell an end to lawyers, the researchers said.

An old Linux security 'feature' script, which activates LUKS disk encryption, has been hiding a major security hole in plain sight.


Sometimes Linux users can be smug about their system’s security. And sometimes a major hole that’s been hiding in Linux since about version 2.6 opens up and in you fall.

The security hole this time is with how almost all Linux distributions implement Linux Unified Key Setup-on-disk-format (LUKS). LUKS is the standard mechanism for implementing Linux hard disk encryption. LUKS is often put into action with Cryptsetup. It’s in Cryptsetup default configuration file that the problem lies and it’s a nasty one. Known Linux distributions with this bug include Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Red Hat Enterpise Linux (RHEL), and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES)…

Shazam Keeps Your Mac’s Microphone Always On, Even When You Turn It Off

What’s that song? On your cellphone, the popular app Shazam is able to answer that question by listening for just a few seconds, as if it were magic. On Apple’s computers, Shazam never turns the microphone off, even if you tell it to.

When a user of Shazam’s Mac app turns the app “OFF,” the app actually keeps the microphone on in the background. For the security researcher who discovered that the mic is always on, it’s a bug that users should know about. For Shazam, it’s just a feature that makes the app work better…

トランプ大統領、爆誕 ――どうなる米国の太陽光発電政策

本日開票が進んでいた2016年米国大統領選挙において、ドナルド・トランプ氏が270票以上を獲得し、当選が確実となった。上院・下院においても共和党の勝利が確定した。

トランプ氏は、米国政府が実施した太陽光発電産業への投資が経済的な失敗であったといった発言や、石炭エネルギーへの支持を仄めかすなど、環境業界にも少なからず影響がありそうだ。

トランプ氏は他にも、「気候変動問題は中国のでっちあげ」といった趣旨をTwitterで投稿したこともあり、現在開催されているパリ協定への影響も懸念される。

豪州、資源大国なのに電力危機 停電・電気代高騰…なぜ

資源大国のオーストラリアで、大規模停電や電気代の異常な高騰といった「電力危機」が起きている。「供給が不安定だ」とやり玉に挙げられたのは風力などの再生可能エネルギー業界だ。風力発電の業者などは「巻き返しを図る石炭業界にぬれぎぬを着せられた」と反論する。電力小売りの自由化も背景にあり、消費者は悲鳴を上げている。
