Flame virus a new age cyber spy tool

CNewsworld.com: Flame virus a new age cyber spy tool

SAN FRANCISCO: The Flame computer virus that smoldered undetected for years in Middle Eastern energy facilities confirmed fears that the world has entered a new age of cyber espionage and sabotage.Internet defenders on Wednesday were tearing into freshly exposed Flame malware (malicious software) that could be adapted to spread to critical infrastructures in countries around the world.While the components and tactics of Flame were considered old school, the gigantic virus’s interchangeable software modules and targeted nature were evidence that malware is a potent weapon in the Internet era.“We are seeing much more specific types of malware and attacks,” said McAfee Labs director of security research David Marcus.“When you talk about a situation where the attacker knows the victim and tailors the malware for the environment it jumps out,” he said. “That speaks to good reconnaissance and an attacker who knows what they are doing.”Gath…

In Depth: New Chrome OS: what you need to know

CNETAnalysis: New Chrome OS: what you need to know Google has redesigned Chrome OS with a more traditional desktop-style appearance. But why has it done it? And is it any good? Here’s everything you need to know. Chrome OS was originally released last year inside Chromebooks laptops from Samsung and Acer . They were essentially netbooks with a different operating system than Windows. But Chrome OS met with huge criticism – not least from this site – that it was too simplistic (the interface was just Google Chrome the browser with no desktop) and that it didn’t really work when you weren’t connected to the internet.

Chrome OS could finally be in a position to challenge more basic versions of Windows.

CNewsworld.com: Painkillers use linked to lower cancer risk

NEW YORK: In a new study from Denmark, people who had taken aspirin, ibuprofen and related painkillers — especially at high doses and for years at a time — were less likely to get skin cancer, compared to those who rarely used those medications.The findings add to growing evidence that long-term use of the medications, known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, may help protect people against skin cancers, including melanoma, the deadliest type.Still, research has not been unanimous in that finding: one large 2008 report found no link between NSAIDs and melanoma.The drugs have also been linked to an increased risk of kidney cancer and come with known bleeding risks — so more research is needed to weigh the possible harms and benefits of the drugs outside of pain relief, researchers said.But the lead author on the new study said it would make sense if NSAIDs were tied to skin cancer risk.“NSAIDs work by inhibitin…
