Hospital viruses: Fake cancerous nodes in CT scans, created by malware, trick radiologists

“Yisroel Mirsky, Yuval Elovici and two others at the Ben-Gurion University Cyber Security Research Center in Israel who created the malware say that attackers could target a presidential candidate or other politicians to trick them into believing they have a serious illness and cause them to withdraw from a race to seek treatment. The research isn’t theoretical. In a blind study the researchers conducted involving real CT lung scans, 70 of which were altered by their malware, they were able to trick three skilled radiologists into misdiagnosing conditions nearly every time. In the case of scans with fabricated cancerous nodules, the radiologists diagnosed cancer 99 percent of the time. In cases where the malware removed real cancerous nodules from scans, the radiologists said those patients were healthy 94 percent of the time.”

“Ce sera une première en France. Lundi 18 février, le maire Les Républicains (LR) de Nice, Christian Estrosi, a annoncé lors d’une conférence de presse que sa municipalité allait tester un système de reconnaissance faciale sur la voie publique via ses caméras de vidéosurveillance. Le test va durer deux jours dans une partie de l’enceinte du carnaval de Nice, dont la 135e édition a commencé samedi. Il concerne exclusivement des personnes volontaires.L’expérimentation permettra de tester différents scénarios, comme celui d’un enfant perdu dans la foule, d’une personne âgée vulnérable elle aussi égarée ou encore d’une personne dite « d’intérêt », c’est-à-dire recherchée, en utilisant six caméras de vidéosurveillance positionnées sur le périmètre de test.”

“Le groupe vient de signer, discrètement, un accord avec Huawei qui s’occupera désormais du cloud des clients français de l’opérateur. Les services secrets, qui notaient la proximité entre la firme et Pékin, s’étranglent : les données des clients iront directement sur les serveurs chinois. L’opérateur nuance : cela ne concerne pas les entreprises, et, toujours selon le Canard, c’est à cause de Free, « si on veut rester compétitifs sans licencier, il faut bien qu’on noue des alliances avec les acteurs les moins chers du marché » se plaignait un cadre de l’opérateur.”

“Chinese hackers are breaching Navy contractors to steal everything from ship-maintenance data to missile plans, officials and experts said, triggering a top-to-bottom review of cyber vulnerabilities. A series of incidents in the past 18 months has pointed out the service’s weaknesses, highlighting what some officials have described as some of the most debilitating cyber campaigns linked to Beijing. Cyberattacks affect all branches of the armed forces but contractors for the Navy and the Air Force are viewed as choice targets for hackers seeking advanced military technology, officials said.”

“Deux établissements français, le lycée Ampère de Marseille et Les Eucalyptus à Nice, vont accueillir un dispositif expérimental de reconnaissance faciale pour l’accès à leur établissement. Annoncé officiellement en 2018, le projet sera mis en place début 2019. Beaucoup s’inquiètent des dérives sécuritaires, même dans le cadre limité de cette expérience.”

Image from Amazon patent

“Recently, a patent application from Amazon became public that would pair face surveillance — like Rekognition, the product that the company is aggressively marketing to police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement — with Ring, a doorbell camera company that Amazon bought earlier this year.”

A 3D-printed head being made at the Backface studio in Birmingham, U.K.

“No such luck with the iPhone X, though. Apple’s investment in its tech – which saw the company work with a Hollywood studio to create realistic masks to test Face ID – has clearly paid off. It was impossible to break in with the model. Microsoft appeared to have done a fine job too. It’s new Windows Hello facial recognition also didn’t accept the fake head as real. Little surprise the two most valuable companies in the world offer the best security.”

Sennheiser discloses monumental blunder that cripples HTTPS on PCs and Macs

“Audio device maker Sennheiser has issued a fix for a monumental software blunder that makes it easy for hackers to carry out man-in-the-middle attacks that cryptographically impersonate any big-name website on the Internet. Anyone who has ever used the company’s HeadSetup for Windows or macOS should take action immediately, even if users later uninstalled the app.”

Huawei - 5G

“The move follows Australia’s decision to ban Huawei from supplying 5G equipment over concerns it could facilitate Chinese spying, and its barring from some U.S. government contracts on national security grounds. Germany, which lacks a telecoms hardware industry of its own, is keener to maintain its traditionally close trade and investment ties with Beijing without compromising on its own cyber-security, say officials.”
