By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: 7 hours, 11 mins ago

A whopping 99 percent of Google Android phone owners faced a potential threat from cybersecurity loopholes, according to the Cheetah Mobile 2014 Mobile Security Report.

Mobile users faced a number of different phishing scams, malware attacks, and data leaks in 2014 - and social network phishing is evolving, posing even more threats that users should be aware of.

 

Android, the most popular mobile operating system, has been applauded for its open source ecosystem - which also gives cybercriminals the ability to easily create malicious tools. Cybersecurity experts recommend running an anti-malware scanner, at the very least, to help identify potential threats that could be avoided.

Fractal Design announces its new Define S chassis

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: 14 hours, 41 mins ago

Fractal Design has expanded its chassis lineup with the new Define S, which is a slight detour from previous products in Fractal's chassis product range. We have a chassis that is built for watercooling builds, making it easier for enthusiasts and power users to liquid cool their PCs in the Define S.

 

 

The Swedish company has placed its ATX motherboard and PSU sections in the same place, as are the fans and radiators. Where the HDDs and optical drives are normally found, has been replaced with more room. This is where your cylindrical reservoir will be placed, with the Define S featuring brackets that allow for the mounting of your reservoir.

 

Behind this cylindrical reservoir, Fractal Design has provided three 3.5-inch HDDs. Behind the motherboard tray, we have room for an additional two 2.5-inch SSDs. The Define S is an optical bay-less chassis, since we're moving into the digital age, this shouldn't be too surprising. When it comes to VGA cards, the Define S is capable of taking a video card that is up to 450mm long.

 

Fractal has placed the Define S pricing at $79.99, with the side window version of the chassis available for $89.

Elon Musk was very close to selling Tesla Motors to Google in 2013

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: 18 hours, 57 mins ago

Tesla Motors has been enjoying some great sales of late, but Elon Musk nearly sold the electric vehicle maker to Google in early 2013. Musk was reportedly very close to securing a deal for Google to buy Tesla, at a time when Tesla wasn't selling too many cars.

 

elon-musk-very-close-selling-tesla-motors-google-2013_30

 

The deal would've seen Musk maintain control of the company for eight years, or when Tesla's mainstream electric vehicle hit the road. The deal disintegrated because Tesla quickly became successful. Now, both Tesla Motors and Google have so far refused to comment on the rumor of Tesla being sold to Google.

AMD Radeon R9 390X rumored to be in very short supply at launch

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 20 hours, 9 mins ago

We're getting closer and closer to the release of the Radeon R9 390X, but we've been hearing some rumblings from within the industry. Our sources have said that AMD will have two Radeon R9 390X cards to launch: one of them will be the Radeon R9 395X2 (a dual-GPU version) with 8GB of VRAM. The second card will be a 4GB version that won't beat the GeForce GTX Titan X.

 

amd-radeon-r9-390x-rumored-very-short-supply-launch_29

 

The dual-GPU will beat the GeForce GTX Titan X, but the normal 4GB won't be capable of beating NVIDIA's GM200-based beast. Our industry sources also tell us that there are some hurdles with yields on HBM, which will see a very limited supply of Radeon R9 390X and Radeon R9 395X2 cards right through to the end of the year.

 

We're expecting AMD to launch their Radeon R9 390X and R9 395X2 at Computex 2015, which kicks off in the first week of June. With NVIDIA having some 74% of the discrete GPU market, AMD needs to sell as many cards as they can, and these yield issues are something we don't need to hear about right now.

Report: Better cybersecurity, safety standards needed for patient data

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: 20 hours, 44 mins ago

Cybercriminals find healthcare data to be an appealing target, as medical records contain a large amount of personal information. There is a drastic need for better cybersecurity protocols - and how hospitals and other medical agencies handle paper and electronic records.

 

report-better-cybersecurity-safety-standards-needed-patient-data_01

 

Thirty four percent of reported medical data breaches over the past three years took place in California, Florida, Texas, New York and Illinois - with a mix of healthcare system partners, insurers, and other third parties helping contribute to the problem.

 

"News of hacking incidents and cybersecurity [breaches] have been in the news so much lately, [that] both for industries inside and outside healthcare, one might get the impression that hacking is the most common reason for data breaches," said Dr. Vincent Liu, from the division of research for Kaiser Permanente, in a statement to Medpage Today. "In fact, we found that theft of paper or electronic records accounted for the majority - protecting the security and privacy of patient data needs to be a priority in many different venues, and with all types of patient data, including paper records."
