The biological engineering major used CCMR facilities and equipment for her work studying the mechanical and material properties of bone with Eve Donnelly, Ph. Unlike many stories about technological revolutions and industry disrupters, this one begins in a mall. Originally from Guyana, South America, Andrea Madho had a successful career as a stockbroker on Wall Street before transitioning to tech-sector public relations and business development. In , Madho and Philip Manning, a mechanical and software engineer and 3D-printing expert, launched a startup, Lab , with offices in Brooklyn and Syracuse, New York. Founded in , CCMR is one of the longest-running MRSEC initiatives in the nation, addressing a full spectrum of leading-edge materials research in three areas: spin manipulation, photonic materials and atomic membranes. The companies apply for the program and pay a fee, and CCMR provides matching funds for the semesterlong project. With that support, companies can produce innovative discoveries and the proof of concept they need to attract additional funding and investment. Eckert Professor in the College of Engineering.

How to avoid the Lucifer malware
The restaurant took over most of its parking lot to offer outside dining. Guests eat, drink and pick up to-go orders in the parking lot turned outdoor dining area at Bungalow 44 in Mill Valley. Bungalow blocked off some of its parking lot to expand its outside dining options during the pandemic. Dining out was something I took for granted all my life, and in the past few years was pretty much a weekly event with friends or loved ones.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory welcomed six technology innovators to join the fourth cohort of Innovation Crossroads, the Southeast's only entrepreneurial research and development program based at a U. Department of Energy national laboratory. For the second year, the Tennessee Valley Authority joins Innovation Crossroads as a program sponsor enabling an innovator focused on energy-related research. Selected through a merit-based process, these scientists and engineers will have the opportunity to advance their technologies by working with world-class science experts and unique capabilities at ORNL, such as Summit, the nation's most powerful supercomputer; the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility, DOE's largest advanced manufacturing research center; and the Spallation Neutron Source, offering atomic-level insight into advanced materials. The innovators also will be partnered with a powerful network of mentoring organizations in the Southeast to help them develop business strategies to advance their breakthroughs to market. Carder's photo sensor technology uses resonances called Mie that improve photo sensor performance by increasing light sensitivity by concentrating the amount of light available to the photo sensor based on the sensor's optical, rather than its physical cross-section. As a result, optical absorption can be dramatically enhanced. The resonance mechanism also eliminates the need for filters and gratings. By providing more pixels per spot of light, information can be combined to sharpen contrast and reduce noise for unprecedented high-resolution images in a small package. Carder holds a doctorate in neurology, anatomy and cell science from the University of Pittsburgh.
Security researchers have found a new malware strain that hijacks vulnerable Windows devices to mine cryptocurrency and stage devastating DDoS attacks , leading the researchers to prompt PC users and server administrators to ensure that they are being protected by the best antivirus software. The malware, called "Lucifer" by its discoverers at cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks' Unit 42 , "brute forces" its way into Windows machines by trying out common usernames and passwords on widely used system ports. The malware primarily targets enterprise servers, especially since those servers can provide entry into corporate networks, but can also infect personal computers. Unit 42 came across the malware after investigating the CVE exploit, a vulnerability in the open-source web-application-development Laravel Framework that enables perpetrators to conduct remote-code-execution attacks. Lucifer's own creators call the malware "Satan DDoS," but Unit 42 thought that might cause confusion as there's already "Satan" ransomware. The attacker then resumed their campaign on June 11, , spreading an upgraded version of the malware and wreaking havoc. National Security Agency some years ago. In this case, the targets are Windows hosts on both the internet and intranet, given that the attacker is leveraging certutil utility in the payload for malware propagation. To make sure your Windows system, whether it's a laptop or a web server, isn't hit by the Lucifer malware, make sure it's fully patched with the latest Windows security updates, and that the system-administrator username and password are strong and unique.
