Constant offensive cyberattacks approved by Pentagon

In a move with no publicity and reportedly little input from the White House, the Pentagon has allegedly approved the U.S. Cyber Command to perform offensive cyberattacks.

The Pentagon approved the use of daily and constant offensive cyberattacks in the spring of this year, according to the original report by The New York Times. The offensive cyberattacks would aim to take pre-emptive action against malicious actors before damage could be done to the U.S.

The planned actions would fall “short of war,” although experts have previously argued there may not be a consensus definition of what constitutes an act of cyberwar. In 2016, the Senate introduced a bill to have then-President Barack Obama clarify the definition of an act of cyberwar, but that bill never passed. 

According to The New York Times, the decision to approve offensive cyberattacks was not formally debated inside the White House, and it is unclear what concessions may have been made to address the potential risks, which include the possible need to invade an ally’s network or how to handle escalation in counterattacks.

The mission statement of the U.S. Cyber Command had been to take a more defensive role and protect the Department of Defense networks. There was leeway in that mission to perform offensive cyberattacks, but only in the effort of preventing harm to the U.S. or its allies.

Leo Taddeo, CISO at Cyxtera Technologies, based in Coral Gables, Fla., and former special agent in charge of cyberops for the FBI’s New York office, said enterprises are likely to take collateral damage as a result of this change.

If the U.S. begins to conduct constant and disruptive activities in foreign computer networks, private enterprises here should expect to be on the receiving end of the return fire.
Leo TaddeoCISO at Cyxtera

“If the U.S. begins to conduct constant and disruptive activities in foreign computer networks, private enterprises here should expect to be on the receiving end of the return fire,” Taddeo said via email. “This would not be a positive development for organizations that are already struggling to address the cyber threat.”

Andrea Limbago, chief social scientist at Endgame, based in Arlington, Va., said the Cyber Command’s action plan likely focuses on maneuvering between defense and using offensive cyberattacks as part of a deterrent strategy.

“The United States has largely done very little publicly in response to cyberattacks, generally avoiding discussing any kind of offensive capabilities or objectives for decades, and still has only publicly attributed a handful of cyberattacks to foreign governments,” Limbago wrote via email. “It is essential to keep that point in mind, as the cyber domain is not siloed from other domains, and so we must move beyond a focus on cyber tit-for-tat when discussing offense and defense.”

“Perhaps the greatest takeaway from this ongoing debate about offense and defense is that both are crucial components of any larger United States cybersecurity strategy, which still is lacking and desperately needed,” she continued. “If and when that is released, we’ll have a better gauge on concrete priorities in the cyber domain.”

For Sale – 2x4gb Samsung DDR3 sodimms (Laptop Memory)

I have for sale 2x4gb Samsung sodimms, recently bought from here for my Sony Vaio laptop.

After doing my best with my limited knowledge I was sure they would work for me, unfortunately they don`t so they are back up for sale here.

Comparing them to my original memory the differences are my memory says 8500s, PC3 2Rx8. Whereas as you can see from the photo the Samsung memory says 12800s, PC3L, 1Rx8. This all means nothing to me, I just know it doesn`t work in my laptop

Wanted – 8th gen Intel laptop with 1080P screen

I appreciate that it’s probably a long shot, but I’m looking to upgrade from my old Dell XPS 15, and thought I’d try here first.

Preferably after an i5 8250u or i7 8550u, minimum 1080P screen, SSD would be nice, but I’m happy to buy one with an M2 slot and fit my own.

AARP, startups partner to study digital healthcare technology

Research from AARP has found 90% of adults aged 50 and older use technology to stay connected. Based on that research, AARP has partnered with two Boston-based digital health startups that have combined technology and healthcare with a friendly face to provide a health-focused robotic companion in the homes of individuals selected to participate in a pilot study of the product.

Pillo, a HIPAA-compliant digital healthcare companion robot, will be placed in the homes of six to 10 pilot study participants later this month for about four weeks to determine how the robot can improve disease management for individuals who have been newly diagnosed with diabetes.

Pillo, which was created by Pillo Health and given a voice through Orbita’s voice experience management platform, is a voice- and video-enabled intelligent assistant that’s able to dispense medication, connect to caregivers, issue voice reminders and perform daily tasks, like reporting the weather and playing radio stations. Emanuele Musini, CEO and co-owner of Pillo Health, said the robot features a 7-inch touchscreen and facial recognition technology. Once Pillo recognizes the patient, it is able to dispense medication that has been preloaded into the robot.

In-home digital healthcare technology is “the future of healthcare,” said Brian Jack, chief of family medicine at Boston Medical Center. Jack said, over the next several years, he expects there will be gradual to rapid movement of care from the office and hospital settings to the home. And he said he believes in-home digital healthcare technology is an opportunity to “provide better care at a lower cost.”

Investing in digital health startups

AARP chose to partner with Orbita and Pillo Health in May as a result of the PULSE@MassChallenge event — a digital health innovation hub established by the city of Boston, MassChallenge and other entities to support digital health startups. AARP launched its $40 million Innovation Fund in 2015 that allows the organization to invest in companies working in three major health-related areas: aging at home, convenience and access to healthcare, and preventive health.

We want to help bring solutions to market that make life better for people 50-plus and increase their health security, financial well-being and personal fulfillment.
Andy Millersenior vice president of innovation and product development, AARP

AARP’s purpose is to “empower” people to choose how they live as they age, said Andy Miller, senior vice president of innovation and product development at AARP, based in Washington, D.C.

“Innovation is a major way to make this happen,” Miller said. “We want to help bring solutions to market that make life better for people 50-plus and increase their health security, financial well-being and personal fulfillment.”

Technology makes it easier for providers to monitor and diagnose patients at critical moments and to provide ongoing care without having the patient always in the room with them, Miller said.

Bringing robotics into the home

Orbita CEO Bill Rogers said Pillo will empower older adults by reminding them to take their medication on time and providing education about diabetes. Pillo can also communicate information to caregivers, alerting them if a person’s medication has not been taken or if some other issue occurs. 

Rogers said the challenge with mobile applications and web portals is the user needs to learn that experience to be able to collaborate with their doctors and physicians. Voice technology “changes the whole game of engagement,” he explained.  

“It allows people to be able to engage and interact with their voice, which is the natural way people engage,” Rogers said.

Pillo’s Musini said the idea to create Pillo stemmed from his own personal experience with his father, who had serious health issues and would forget to take his medication and follow the doctor’s orders.

“We started it with a mission to empower older adults living at home with chronic conditions,” Musini said. “The approach I had was, ‘What if there was someone with my father at that time?’ There was something that could be with him 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and was alert.”

Providing aftercare in-home help

Jack, who leads Project Re-Engineered Discharge (RED), a Boston University Medical Center research group responsible for developing and testing strategies to improve the hospital discharge process, helped design an animated health information technology system named Louise that provides aftercare information to people recently discharged from the hospital.

Project RED studied the system and found twice as many people who used Louise preferred to receive their discharge information from the system, rather than a doctor or nurse for several reasons, including Louise’s availability and accessibility. After returning home, Jack said patients and their caregivers are able to sign onto the Louise technology and learn about medication, proper care and follow-up appointments, as well as easily connect with their clinicians.

“When patients leave the hospital, in our studies, when we ask them what they are most worried about, they say that, ‘I’m all by myself,'” Jack said. “When there are at-home technologies, where the patient can access the technology, the technology can access the clinicians, and the patients are super happy. Plus, they can get their problem fixed in a timely way, rather than waiting for an appointment.”

Identifying best practices for digital healthcare technology

Jack said thorough study of in-home digital healthcare technology is critical before sending it out into the public — a sentiment echoed by John Torous, co-director of the digital psychiatry division at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

Torous said it’s up to researchers and groups like AARP to find best practices for in-home digital healthcare technology to avoid potentially harmful consequences.

“I think together we can learn how to use this technology in a productive, ethical and meaningful way, and it will have a bigger role in healthcare,” Torous said.

Miller said the goal of AARP’s collaborations with companies like Pillo Health and Orbita is to “gain useful and impactful information that can be used to continue to improve the customer experience and help make these products as beneficial as possible.”

Along with Orbita and Pillo, AARP has partnered with digital health startups like Folia Health and One Medical Group.

“When considering which startups to work with, we are looking for mission-aligned companies who have transformational solutions and those we can work with to co-create ageless design solutions that could have meaningful impact in the lives of the 50-plus consumer,” Miller said.

Intel Core i7 5820K s2011 v3 – £150 delivered
Purchased November 2015. Retail boxed. Note, this does not come with a heatsink and does not have an iGPU (in case buyers weren’t aware of the differences between Haswell-E and regular Haswell chips). I overclocked it for a few hours when I first set up my loop in 2015 but has been run at stock ever since.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Black Micro ATX Case – £50 collected

Purchased September 2015. This is the original Evolv (not the recent model). Boxed with toolbox, pump mount, PWM hub, etc. I believe most of the original parts are included in the accessory kit. Not sure if all of the original screws are in the toolbox but the attached picture provides a good indication of what is included. The original 140mm and 200mm fans were reinstalled in the case. There are some scratches on the top (see pics) and some marks/faint scratches on the window – though this didn’t appear as clearly in the pics and are more pronounced and whitish in colour.

MSI GeForce GT 710 Passive Silent Graphics Card 2GB – £25 delivered
Purchased March 2017. Was used briefly whilst my 980ti went for RMA.

************ Watercooling Parts ************

Please note, all watercooling parts have been flushed with deionised water but it is recommended the buyer flush/clean these to ensure they are 100% clean and ready for your loop. I used clear Mayhems XT fluid for the loop but there has been a greyish tint to it when cleaning. I am sure more remains. I have had 0 leaks during the time the loop was installed (2015-2018) and the loop was dismantled in Feb 2018.

EK 150 Res.jpg

EK 43031 XTOP Revo D5 PWM Pump – £50 delivered
Purchased November 2015. For total transparency I had experienced some faint whine (not really audible when the side panels were closed) from the pump when I had mounted it on the back of my case using Velcro and cable ties, this went away after a while. I’m not sure if it was the pump or my method of attaching it to the case that did this.
D5 Pump.jpg

EK-XRES 100 REVO D5 – ACETAL Pump Top + Res – £30 delivered
Purchased April 2017. This is a 100ml reservoir and pump top combo for the D5 pump. Some water marks remain inside the tube from where the water levels were in my loop.
EK Res 100.jpg

EKWB 830543 FC Titan X Acetal GPU Waterblock – £40 delivered
Purchased November 2015. Boxed with screws.
This is a Titan X waterblock but fit the reference 980ti perfectly.
Please note, one of the screws on the heatsink side came off (see pic, green circle, to see which one) when I removed it from the GPU. It does not appear to have weakened/loosened the block as there is a screw on the other side connecting the block. I don’t know if this will affect the seating. The copper side also has some blemishes as seen in the pics.
