  • Smuggling of US tech said to be outpacing Cold War levels - The Straits Times

    WASHINGTON Foreign smugglers are trying to ship US technologies, which can be used for weapons and spy equipment, to China, Russia and other adversaries at rates that outpace shadowy and illegal exports during the Cold War, according to US officials and experts.In one recent case, a Texas businessman was paid US$1.5 million (S$2 million) to buy special radiation resistant circuits for space programmes in Russia and China. The businessman, Peter Zuccarelli, was working with a smuggling ring run by a Pakistani born American citizen; court documents show Zuccarelli created fake shipping documents and mislabelled the circuits as parts for touchscreen computers. He was sentenced in January to four years in prison.

  • Flagship launches Foghorn Therapeutics with $50M commitment - FierceBiotech

    The company likened the chromatin regulation, which directs gene expression in cells, to air traffic control: Just as airports need an air traffic control system to direct which planes move and when, where, and in what order, our bodies need a system to control which genes our cells express, and when, where, in what order, and what quantity. A breakdown in chromatin regulation is a major, unexplored cause of many diseases, including more than 20% of cancers, the company said. Foghorn set up shop in 2016 to develop new drugs to target problems in this system. Its founders are Flagship s Douglas Cole, Gerald Crabtree of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Stanford University, and Cigall Kadoch, of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School and the Broad Institute. Adrian Gottschalk, previously a senior vice president and neurodegeneration therapeutic area head at Biogen, has signed on as CEO.

  • Microsoft Distributing Spectre, Meltdown, Antivirus Updates - ExtremeTech

    Intel recently announced that it had completed microcode updates for CPUs stretching back into the Sandy Bridge era, and Microsoft has made those updates available via an expanded version of the same KB4090007 it;s been using for this purpose to date. We;ve checked the Microsoft Update Catalog to confirm the version of the patch we linked in our earlier story was dated 2 28, while this new flavor is dated 3 13. Microsoft;s notification, however, only mentions more recent chips like Skylake, Kaby Lake, and Coffee Lake. This implies there may be a longer lag time between when Intel finishes its updates and when they;re incorporated into the KB patch.At the least, installing KB4090007 should patch up sixth generation and later Intel CPUs, with the Sandy, Ivy, and Haswell KB update arriving later. Intel is still working on microcode updates for Nehalem and certain chips in the Core 2 Duo family. To the best of ET #8217;s knowledge, there #8217;s no plan to extend any patches to systems earlier than Core 2 Duo.
