  • Pre-existing immunity against the new Coronavirus in the human population.

    08/01/2020 8:16:50 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 17 replies
    Pre-existing immunity against the new coronavirus At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was assumed that no immunity against the new coronavirus existed in the population. This was one of the main reasons behind the initial strategy of “flattening the curve” by introducing stay-at-home orders.From March and April onwards, however, the first studies showed that a considerable part of the population already had a certain immunity to the new virus, acquired through contact with earlier coronaviruses (common cold viruses).Further important studies on this topic were published in July: A new study from Germany came to the conclusion that up...

  • Apple iOS 13: Is Facebook And Google’s Worst Nightmare Coming True?

    Forbes ^ | Sep 22, 2019, 10:52am | Kate O’Flaherty
    Apple’s iOS 13 comes with some major changes to privacy and security, but it’s also highlighted the data collection practices of firms such as Facebook and Google. One of the first things you might notice when using Apple’s iOS 13 is a notification when opening an app such as Facebook asking for Bluetooth permission. Sure, some apps need access to Bluetooth to work properly. Take, for example the Fitbit smartwatch. But others use Bluetooth to stealthily track people’s location using beacons dotted around in cities and shopping areas. The Verge’s Chris Welch wrote a useful article including more detail on...

    GameSpot ^ | October 18, 2018 at 5:52PM | Steve Watts on
    Ubisoft has issued a new patch for Assassin's Creed Odyssey on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The 1.0.5 patch weighs in at 0.16 GB on PS4 and 0.1 GB on Xbox One, and focuses on squashing bugs--including fixing one issue that only appeared after a previous patch. According to the patch notes, it improves stability and fixes an issue that would make the game crash to the dashboard after the release of update v1.0.3. That update itself was aimed at quality-of-life improvements and fixing game-breaking bugs. The two updates were only days apart, though, so Ubisoft is seeing to these...

    The PCI Security Standards Council, the body governing credit card transactions, has set a deadline for disabling early versions of TLS/SSL to June 30, 2018. What are these technologies? TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) are fundamental to internet transport security. Early versions are still fairly common in older infrastructure. Not updating to the newer versions by the deadline could cause your organization to incur a major fee and potentially halt taking credit card transactions. Why is the TLS update critical?  Let’s take a step back and lay some groundwork. TLS and its predecessor SSL are a set...

    Four people have died after after a huge explosion demolished a grocery store and the flat above it in Leicester. Passers-by dug through the burning wreckage of Western Park Stores with their bare hands as emergency services raced to the scene, with flames shooting 50ft into the air. The cause of the explosion, which occurred at 7:20pm last night while the grocery shop and its neighbouring takeaway restaurant and bar were open, remained a mystery today with gas engineers on site. Eight people were taken to hospital with injuries and this morning it emerged that four have died, while one...
