Researcher cracks Wi-Fi passwords with Amazon cloud A security researcher has tapped Amazon's cloud computing service to crack Wi-Fi passwords in a fraction of the time and for a fraction of the cost of using his own gear. Thomas Roth of Cologne, Germany told Reuters he used custom software running on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud service to break into a WPA-PSK protected network in about 20 minutes. With refinements to his program, he said he could shave the time to about six minutes. With EC2 computers available for 28 cents per minute, the cost of the crack came to just $1.68. “People tell me there is no possible way to break WPA, or, if it were possible, it would cost you a ton of money to do so,” Roth told the news service.

PlayStation Network hack launched from Amazon EC2 High performance access to file storage The hackers who breached the security of Sony's PlayStation Network and gained access to sensitive data for 77 million subscribers used Amazon's web services cloud to launch the attack, Bloomberg News reported. The attackers rented a server from Amazon's EC2 service and penetrated the popular network from there, the news outlet said, citing an unnamed person with knowledge of the matter. The hackers supplied fake information to Amazon. The account has now been closed. Neither Sony nor Amazon commented on the claims.
Sony hit with attacks in Greece and Japan - Faster Forward Posted at 09:53 AM ET, 05/24/2011 May 24, 2011 01:53 PM EDT TheWashingtonPost First 1000 responses – most popular tools per research activity In this post we present a straight percentage count of the preselected options for the 17 research activities that we asked about in our survey Innovations in Scholarly Communication. These figures represent the first 1000 responses. Please keep in mind that these first 1000 reponses do have a bias due to the predominant distribution methods in the first weeks of the survey (Twitter and other social media, and mailing lists). The final results will probably substantially deviate from what you see below, and be more reliable. We need way more response and hope that institutions/libraries will take the opportunity to distribute the survey and get the data for their institution. Also note that many respondents specified which other tools they use, in addition to the preselected options.
Digital Object Identifier System FAQs These "Frequently Asked Questions" about the DOI system and DOI® names are not meant to take the place of the fuller information available in the DOI Handbook; where possible, we provide pointers to the relevant section of the handbook. If you have a question that you think should be added to this list, or is not satisfactorily answered, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com. See also the DOI Handbook, Glossary of Terms, for definitions of related terms, and the Handle System® FAQs to learn about the underlying handle resolution technology. 1. How do I get a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for my material?
Publish or Perish Anne-Wil Harzing - (updated Wed 17 Aug 2016 15:46) Are you applying for tenure, promotion or a new job? Do you want to include evidence of the impact of your research? How to Write Guide: Sections of the Paper | Table of Contents | FAQs | PDF Version | | Rationale | Sections | Section Headings | Title | Authors and Affiliation | Abstract| Introduction| Methods| Results| Discussion | Acknowledgments| Literature Cited | Appendices Why a Scientific Format? The scientific format may seem confusing for the beginning science writer due to its rigid structure which is so different from writing in the humanities. One reason for using this format is that it is a means of efficiently communicating scientific findings to the broad community of scientists in a uniform manner. Another reason, perhaps more important than the first, is that this format allows the paper to be read at several different levels. For example, many people skim Titles to find out what information is available on a subject.
March RSA Hack Hits Lockheed, Remote Systems Breached A March attack on RSA's SecurID authentication service has possibly claimed its first big victim: Lockheed Martin. According to a source speaking to Reuters, unknown hackers have broken into Lockheed Martin's security systems by using duplicate SecurID tokens to spoof legitimate authentications into the network. These SecurID tokens are analogous to Blizzard's World of Warcraft Authenticators: Tiny little keyfobs that display an ever-changing code one must enter to log into a protected service.
