Your Monitor is not safe... Hackers could use it to spy on you

Monitors are viewed as uninvolved and safe to hacks. Be that as it may, a scientist can't help disagreeing with this basic idea. The main thing a monitor does is get information and transform it into pixels. Yet, to do as such, the monitor requires a little PC. This 'little PC' is powerless to hacks. 

A security research bunch figured out how to hack into a monitor and control showed content, not to mention spy on the client. It would be a bad dream if the monitor were betrayed you in such a way. The programmer would have admittance to everything that showcases on your monitor including exceptionally secret stuff, for example, passwords to different locales. 
Ang Cui, close by some of his associates displayed the hack amid the Def Con hacking gathering in Las Vegas a week ago. Cui is a main researcher at the Red Balloon Security and holds a doctorate from the Columbia University and the same individual who amid Def Con 2015 showed how clients need to shield their PC from Radiofrequency to prevent programmers from taking their own information utilizing radio sound waves.

The hacks work like some other hack. To begin with, the programmer needs to deceive you into downloading malware to your framework; this is finished by either attracting you into a site or utilizing a phishing join. The malware you download for this situation focuses on the firmware PC in the monitor. The PC being referred to is the one in charge of brilliance modification and other such elements of the monitor. 
Once the malware contaminates the framework, it anticipates directions from the programmer. The malware gets directions by means of squint pixels, which could be in a video or site. The squinting pixel essentially transfers code to the monitor. The malware can successfully perform two things. To start with, it spies on you by sending the showed on your monitor to the programmer. Also, the programmer can change the presentation, in this way showing whatever the programmer needs to show. 
Cui cautioned that such a hack could influence billions of individuals around the world given that most monitors have processors that are fairly helpless against interruptions. Cui says that "in the event that you have a monitor, the high risks are that you are as of now hacked." 
Yet, there is a catch. Pictures stack gradually if the malware is to be utilized to change the showcase. Accordingly, the hack ought to be compelling on industry construct PCs since the pictures in light of the presentation are for the most part static. 
Cui called attention to that we now live in reality as we know it where we can't believe the monitor. Cui's work was to show that the hack is conceivable. The gathering does not expect to utilize the hack but rather caution the producers of the conceivable outcomes.

HOW GOOGLE'S NEW A.I. MICROCHIPS TAKE A PAGE FROM BITCOIN MINERS

Yesterday at  Google’s I/O developers conference , CEO Sundar Pichai briefly spoke about a custom-built chip that helps give Google its edge in machine learning and artificial intelligence. The chip, dubbed a TPU or Tensor Processing Unit (in keeping with  Google's A.I. platform TensorFlow ), is specifically wrought for running Google’s decision-making algorithms.  Most companies like Facebook and Microsoft use GPUs  for their machine learning and artificial intelligence.But Pichai’s speech and the  accompanying blog post  only reveal a few details about TPUs. About the only useful thing we know about the chip is that it’s an ASIC, or application-specific integrated circuit. ASIC chips aren’t bought off the shelves, but designed specifically to do one task very well without using a lot of power. They’re used in applications that never change, like the controlling how a phone battery charges. .............................. [ read full story ] Tags :   Bitcoin, Business,

A short article on "flying dinosaurs"

image credit We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them — 1. Pterodactyl The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.  Pterodactyl image credit Pterodactyl Fossil image credit 2. Petinosaurus Petinosaurus wings were formed by membranes of skin and other soft tissues. And also there were no feathers on their wings. These types of flying dinosaurs are small in size than Pterodactyl. Food habit is the same as Pt

What are bitcoin miners really solving? (collected from web)

What are bitcoin miners really solving? Here is an  extremely  simplified sketch of the problem, but it should give a pretty good idea of what the problem is.  The data:  This is the hash of the lastest block (shortened to 30 characters):   00000000000001adf44c7d69767585 These are the hashes of a few valid transactions waiting for inclusion (shortened).  5572eca4dd4 db7d0c0b845 And this the hash of one special transaction that you just crafted, which gives 25BTC (the current reward) to yourself:  916d849af76 Building the next block:  Now, let's use a gross approximation of what a new block might look  like (the real one uses binary format). It contains the hash of the  previous block and the hashes of those 3 transactions:  00000000000001adf44c7d69767585--5572eca4dd4-db7d0c0b845-916d849af76-- Now let's do mining by hand! Our goal is to complete this block with a  nonce (a piece of garbage) such that the hash of the new block starts  with 13 zeros (consid
