Israel Hit with Massive Cyberattack Targeting Electrical Grid

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, quantum physics

Cyber attacks on our power grids — As I have highlighted in my Jan 10th Pulse positing “Quantum Computing – things that need to be considered for our future Quantum Computing” we mush get our funding and special projects under way to prevent a possible Quantum hack by overseas hackers. Russia and China are both ramping up their infrastructures to be Quantum to protect their citizens and we must do the same.


Israel’s Electric Authority has revealed its systems have been the target of a “severe cyberattack” which, while under control, is yet to be fully repelled.

“We had to paralyze numerous computers of the Israeli electricity authorities”, he said.

Bill Gates and Elon Musk Will Save the World from AI?

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, Elon Musk, employment, habitats, robotics/AI, transportation

I must admit; I got a little laughter from reading the beginning of this article. However, there is a potential longer term concern around jobs and an even larger concern around data (including IP) when it comes to AI. So, I truly hope folks are strategically planning, designing, and implementing appropriate safeguards around their AI architecture and systems; especially if we look at hacking, etc.


Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking have all done their part in warning the world of the true power of artificial intelligence. All three men were actually awarded the 2015 Luddite Award, which is given by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation.

Because of their honest assessment on the power of new technology, these three men have been called alarmists who spread horror. There were 10 total nominees to the prices, and all three received them after getting more 3,680 votes.

Artificial intelligence: Who’s regulating the robots?

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Run away AI & Robots in particular do not worry me at this point. When we have Quantum based AI and Robots meaning they can fully operate themselves; that’s when we have to truly consider our real risks and ensure we have proper safe gaurds. The bigger issue with current AI and Robots that are not developed on a Quantum platform or technology is hacking. Hacking by others is the immediate threat for AI & Robots.

Cyber Threats 2016: Killer Robots, US Presidential Race, Critical Infrastructure, Mobile Payments And More

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, energy, internet, quantum physics, robotics/AI, transportation

As I have mentioned in some of my other reports and writings; infrastructure (power grids, transportation, social services, etc.) is a key area that we need to modernize and get funding soon in place given the changes that are coming. As Russia’s own power stations were hacked; it will not be anything to when the more sophisticated releases of the Quantum Internet and Platforms are finally releasing to the main stream. Someone last week asked me what kept me up at night worrying; I told them our infrastructure and we have not been planning or modernizing it to handle the changes that are coming in the next 5 years much less the next 7 years.


With cyberattacks gaining in sophistication and volume, we can expect to see a range of new targets in the year ahead.

The Pentagon’s plan to outsource lethal cyber-weapons

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, military, privacy

The Pentagon has quietly put out a call for vendors to bid on a contract to develop, execute and manage its new cyber weaponry and defense program. The scope of this nearly half-billion-dollar “help wanted” work order includes counterhacking, as well as developing and deploying lethal cyberattacks — sanctioned hacking expected to cause real-life destruction and loss of human life.

In June 2016, work begins under the Cyberspace Operations Support Services contract (pdf) under CYBERCOM (United States Cyber Command). The $460 million project recently came to light and details the Pentagon’s plan to hand over its IT defense and the planning, development, execution, management, integration with the NSA, and various support functions of the U.S. military’s cyberattacks to one vendor.

While not heavily publicized, it’s a surprisingly public move for the Pentagon to advertise that it’s going full-on into a space that has historically been kept behind closed doors. Only this past June, the Department of Defense Law of War Manual (pdf) was published for the first time ever and included Cyber Operations under its own section — and, controversially, a section indicating that cyber-weapons with lethal outcomes are sanctioned by Pentagon doctrine.

Breakthrough medical discovery: 3D printing might be used to regenerate nerves

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, cybercrime/malcode, mobile phones

Having significantly damaged nerve tissue is bad for a lot of reasons because it doesn’t regenerate easily and it can lead to various serious medical conditions including paralysis. But many scientists are already studying ways of fixing this issue, and a team of researchers from the University of Minnesota, Virginia Tech, University of Maryland, Princeton University, and Johns Hopkins University has figured out how to use 3D printing for nerve growth.
