This release uses the latest state-of-the-art, cryptographer-recommended algorithms for modern day encryption and key generation, designed to withstand the latest advances in cryptographic attacks and brute-forcing.These new releases are backed by two new security audits conducted by two of the world’s leading cryptography research and testing firms: Cure53 and Trail of Bits.
Data disruption and network activity warrants can be issued by an eligible judge or a nominated member of the administrative appeals tribunal (AAT), while account takeover warrants must come from a magistrate.

There were two big issues in the previous Qubes architecture that needed to be handled for an effective approach to a GUI domain: how the GUI protocol relied on dom0-level privileges and how managing anything in the system required dom0-level access to the hypervisor.
A memo outlining the program published Monday by the Department of Homeland Security said U.S. citizens and permanent residents holding a “green card” who are detained could be subject to DNA testing, as well as asylum seekers and people entering the country without authorization.

Intel CPUs are at the center of controversy once again as yet another vulnerability is discovered by Cybersecurity researchers.According to their findings, the security vulnerability can compromise SGX (software guard extensions) protected by undervolting the CPU when executing protected computations, to the degree that the SGX memory encryption failed to protect data.
The Librem 13 is the first ultra-portable laptop for the security-conscious road warrior—designed chip-by-chip, line-by-line, to respect your rights to privacy, security, and freedom.When you use a Purism computer you know you are operating the best hardware and software, while keeping your rights to privacy, security, and freedom in mind.

Now, researchers are warning that, in certain scenarios, attackers can abuse DDIO to obtain keystrokes and possibly other types of sensitive data that flow through the memory of vulnerable servers.
Our new electronic chip uses light to create and modify memories, moving us closer towards artificial intelligence (AI) that can replicate the human brain’s sophistication. This enables it to mimic the way neurons work to store and delete information in the brain.
If you choose to make your Vid public and it includes the auto-generated memory for a particular brand, then that brand will have the opportunity to add a swipe-up link to that memory, provided the user has chosen to monetize it.
Boffins from Graz University of Technology in Austria have devised an automated system for browser profiling using two new side channel attacks that can help expose information about software and hardware to fingerprint browsers and improve the effectiveness of exploits.
While existing attacks target information at specific addresses, RIDL operates akin to a passive sniffer that eavesdrops on in-flight data (e.g., data in the line fill buffers) flowing through CPU components.
It’s called GrapheneOS, and it comes from Daniel Micay, the former lead developer of another security-based Android fork called CopperheadOS. Since it’s an open source project, independent developers may be able to port the operating system to run on additional devices.
