Microsoft Exchange exploited to hack 30,000 US organization emails

What just happened? Four exploits found in Microsoft Exchange Server software have led to some 30,000 U.S. government and commercial organizations – including police departments, hospitals, and nonprofits – having their emails hacked. Microsoft rolled-out a patch to fix four zero-day exploits in Exchange Server a few days ago, but that hasn’t stopped a hacking group from taking advantage of the situation. According to Microsoft, the vulnerabilities in Exchange Server are being targeted by a previously unknown Chinese hacking group known as “Hafnium.” In the days since Microsoft issued the patch for Exchange, the group is said to have dramatically doubled-up its efforts, targeting unpatched servers around the world and accessing the accounts of s...

Justice League Snyder Cut India Pricing, Release Time Announced

Justice League Snyder Cut will cost Rs. 149 to rent and Rs. 689 to buy on BookMyShow Stream, the ticketing platform has announced. Pre-orders are now live. We also have the exact release time: Zack Snyder's Justice League will be available March 18 at 1:31pm IST. Pricing is not yet available for any other platforms — including Apple TV, Google Play/ YouTube, Hungama Play, or Tata Sky — but I'd expect it to be in the same ballpark. Warner Bros.' other recent releases, including Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984, cost Rs. 120 to rent on Hungama Play, Rs. 150 to rent on Apple and Google platforms, Rs. 690 to buy on Apple TV, and Rs. 720 to buy on Google Play. Hungama Play doesn't allow movie purchases, and that will also be true for Justice League Snyder Cut, it told Gadgets 360.While Justice Le...

VW ‘Project Trinity’ teases cars that unlock features on-demand

Volkswagen claims it's "not afraid" of the threat posed by any Apple Car and released this shadowy teaser image that may represent why. The image is a teaser for Project Trinity, an electric sedan that CEO Ralf Brandstätter called "our software dream car." Like any pie in the sky concept it of course is designed in anticipation of advanced self-driving capabilities, long range electric propulsion systems and fast charging battery tech, but that software bit is where it shows the plans in place. According to VW the plan is to start production on this car in 2026, as part of a vehicle lineup with fewer variants and where everything is standardized. What that means is that instead of building multiple versions of the same car with varying capabilities, they'll build one version with everyt...

Furious AI researcher creates a list of non-reproducible machine learning papers

On February 14, a researcher who was frustrated with reproducing the results of a machine learning research paper opened up a Reddit account under the username ContributionSecure14 and posted the r/MachineLearning subreddit: “I just spent a week implementing a paper as a baseline and failed to reproduce the results. I realized today after googling for a bit that a few others were also unable to reproduce the results. Is there a list of such papers? It will save people a lot of time and effort.” The post struck a nerve with other users on r/MachineLearning, which is the largest Reddit community for machine learning. “Easier to compile a list of reproducible ones…,” one user responded. “Probably 50%-75% of all papers are unreproducible. It’s sad, but it’s ...

VC Lindy Fishburne on the sudden democratization of science — and deep tech investing – TechCrunch

Deep science investor Lindy Fishburne cofounded the seed- and early-stage venture firm Breakout Ventures several years ago, after cofounding Breakout Labs within the Thiel Foundation back in 2011, and she has made a wide array of interesting bets in the process. Among her firm’s portfolio companies is Cortexyme, a company that aims to treat Alzheimer’s disease; the sustainable materials maker Modern Meadow; and Strateos, a company whose robotic cloud platform is remaking how lab work gets done. We talked with Fishburne this week about where — based on what she is seeing — we are in the arc of this pandemic. We also talked about why more of her investments, which once seemed like long shots, suddenly seem like solid bets. Parts of our chat, below, have been edited lightly for length...
