Hackers see the cloud as ripe territory

A survey at last month's Defcon hacking conference paints that picture. Sponsored by security vendor Fortify Software, the survey asked 100 hackers who attended Defcon about security in the cloud. A sizable 96 percent said they believe the cloud opens up more hacking opportunities, while 89 percent said cloud vendors aren't doing enough to address cybersecurity issues. Among the hackers surveyed, 45 percent said they had already tried to exploit vulnerabilities in the cloud. Although only 12 percent admitted to hacking into cloud systems for the money, that's still a significant percentage to ponder for companies moving to the cloud, according to Fortify. Drilling down further, 21 percent of those questioned see software as a service (SaaS) cloud systems as the most vulnerable. Other surveys have likewise found that IT professionals see the cloud as a risky place to house resources.

Applications. Wired. A Protein Killer Could Treat All Cancers, and Possibly All Illnesses. By Corey Binns Posted 08.23.2010 at 10:21 am Choking a Tumor MRI scans show that blood flow [red] decreases in liver tumors after ALN-VSP therapy, which stops cancer cells from making proteins that form blood vessels. Courtesy ALNYLAM Since last April, 19 cancer patients whose liver tumors hadn’t responded to chemotherapy have taken an experimental drug. Within weeks of the first dose, it appeared to work, by preventing tumors from making proteins they need to survive. The results are preliminary yet encouraging. The biotech company Alnylam announced in June that its drug ALN-VSP cut off blood flow to 62 percent of liver-cancer tumors in those 19 patients, by triggering a rarely used defense mechanism in the body to silence cancerous genes.

Here’s another analogy: If DNA is the blueprint for proteins, RNA is the contractor. That ability makes RNAi a potential fix for many diseases, including cancer, that arise when abnormal cells produce excessive amounts of everyday proteins.
