New ‘Lobshot’ hVNC Malware Used by Russian Cybercriminals

Posted by in category: cybercrime/malcode

Russian cybercrime group TA505 has been observed using new hVNC (Hidden Virtual Network Computing) malware in recent attacks, threat intelligence company Elastic reports.

Called Lobshot, the malware allows attackers to bypass fraud detection engines and provides them with stealthy, direct access to the infected machines.

The threat actor distributes the malware through malvertising, abusing Google Ads and a network of fake websites to trick users into downloading legitimate-looking installers containing backdoors.

OpenAI Competitor Says Its Chatbot Has a Rudimentary Conscience

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

With AI chatbots’ propensity for making things up and spewing bigoted garbage, one firm founded by ex-OpenAI researchers has a different approach — teaching AI to have a conscience.

As Wired reports, the OpenAI competitor Anthropic’s intriguing chatbot Claude is built with what its makers call a “constitution,” or set of rules that draws from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and elsewhere to ensure that the bot is not only powerful, but ethical as well.

Jared Kaplan, a former OpenAI research consultant who went on to found Anthropic with a group of his former coworkers, told Wired that Claude is, in essence, learning right from wrong because its training protocols are “basically reinforcing the behaviors that are more in accord with the constitution, and discourages behaviors that are problematic.”

The DNA of Decision-Making

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, genetics

Summary: A novel study uncovers a peculiar pattern of decision-making in mice, influenced by a specific gene named Arc.

While searching for food, mice repeatedly visited an empty location instead of staying at a site abundant in food. However, mice lacking the Arc gene demonstrated a more practical approach, sticking with the food-rich site, thereby consuming more calories overall.

This unique research potentially opens the door for a new field, ‘decision genetics’, investigating the genetic influence on decision-making, possibly even in humans.
