The new report, entitled The Dark Reality of Open Source , laid out the risks increasingly plaguing open source software (OSS). It found that the total number of common vulnerabilities and exposures vulnerabilities (CVEs) shot up to 968 in 2019 a considerable leap from the 421 CVEs that were recorded in 2018 and marking a rise of 130% in the span of only a single year.In addition, the average time it takes for security vulnerabilities in open source projects to be updated on the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) after their public disclosure is as much as 54 days, according to the researchers, leaving security vulnerabilities exposed for an inordinate amount of time.

It #039;s important to be familiar with your skin so you can notice changes, but it #039;s always a good idea to be evaluated by a dermatologist for a baseline skin check. While regular self evaluation may make it more likely that melanoma and other types of skin cancer will be caught early, having a trained expert look for subtle changes you may not see is always helpful. The earlier skin cancer is diagnosed, the better the chances are of curing it.Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. It develops in cells called melanocytes that produce melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its color. The exact cause of all melanomas isn t clear, but exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation increases your risk of developing the disease. This can come from sunlight, as well as from tanning lamps and tanning beds. Also, genetic factors and skin type can play a part in developing skin cancer.

Washington D.C. India , May 23 (ANI): In a breakthrough study, researchers have found that use of antibiotics in infancy can raise the risk of obesity in early childhood, with boys being slightly more vulnerable.The findings by a team of researchers from Singapore''s NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine), Agency for Science, Technology and Research''s (A STAR) Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences (SICS), and KK Women''s and Children''s Hospital (KKH) have been published in the scientific journal International Journal of Obesity.Animal studies using mice have documented that early life antibiotic exposure causes metabolic abnormalities including obesity through gut microbiota disruption although there is limited evidence from human studies.There is also accumulating evidence that suggests colonization of the gut microbiota at an early age plays a pivotal role in the weight gain and development of obesity in the later life (between ages 12 14).In a sub study of the Growing up in Singapore Towards healthy Outcome (GUSTO) birth cohort, led by Professor Lee Yung Seng, Head of Paediatrics at NUS Medicine and Group Director, Paediatrics, National University Health System (NUHS) and Principal investigator at SICS, and Dr Neerja Karnani, Adjunct Assistant Professor at NUS Medicine''s Department of Biochemistry and Senior Principal Investigator, SICS, the team examined the implication of gut microbiota in the relationship between infant antibiotic exposure and childhood obesity.Other lead researchers for this study are Dr Ling Wei Chen and Dr Jia Xu from SICS, A STAR. Very few human studies to date have examined this association.Through the study, the team showed that the use of antibiotics in infancy can raise the risk of obesity in early childhood, with the boys being slightly more vulnerable.Recurrent administration of antibiotics can disrupt the development of infant gut microbiota and serve as a potential mechanism for linking antibiotic exposure with later adiposity."Childhood obesity is a growing concern for the many adverse health effects it brings in adulthood such as Type 2 diabetes. The infancy period (1st year) represents part of a critical window of development which can have a lasting effect on subsequent health and disease later in life," said Prof Lee.The human gut relies on its microbial inhabitants to provide certain essential nutrients, aid digestion, and support their immune system. Acquisition of these friendly microbes starts immediately after birth and this process is highly sensitive to infant exposures.Antibiotics use is one such exposure. Although it helps eliminate the pathogenic bacteria, it may also eliminate some good bacteria during the course of its action."Acquisition of gut microbes in infancy is a highly dynamic and vulnerable process. Use of antibiotics during this process can disrupt the normal colonization and development of infant gut microbiota, and this may consequently influence a child''s weight gain and obesity risk," added Dr Karnani.The associated alterations in the gut microbiota through the use of antibiotics and their link with child adiposity has important implications on the role of gut microbiota in the development of body fat and risk of obesity, and the mechanism through which antibiotics exposure can lay the foundation for bad metabolic outcomes in the future.The findings of this study amplify the need for the careful consideration of the benefits vs the risks of administrating antibiotics and the frequency of their use in early life.The data from the study was based on interviewer administered questionnaires with parents, body composition measurements, and laboratory analysis of stool samples in children from the GUSTO mother offspring cohort study.

The launch today means that public health agencies can now use the API in apps released to the general public. To date, Apple and Google have only released beta versions of the API to help with the development process.To be clear, this launch means that developers working on behalf of public health agencies can now issue apps that make use of it #8212; Apple and Google themselves are not creating an exposure notification or contact tracing app. The companies say that many U.S. states and 22 countries across five continents have already asked for, and been provided access to, the API to support their development efforts, and they anticipate more being added going forward. So far, Apple and Google say they have conducted more than 24 briefings and tech talks for public health officials, epidemiologists and app developers working on their behalf.
Children suffering from non respiratory disease symptoms like diarrhea and fever, or those with a history of exposure to the novel coronavirus, should be suspected of having COVID 19, a new study says.According to the research, published in the journal Frontiers in Pediatrics, gastrointestinal symptoms first suffered by some children hints at potential infection with SARS CoV 2 through the digestive tract.
Risk factors for violence, abuse and neglect are on the rise for children living under restricted movement and socio economic decline. Girls and women are at increased risk of sexual and gender based violence. In many cases, refugee, migrant and internally displaced children, as well as returnees, are experiencing reduced access to services and protection and increasing exposure to xenophobia and discrimination. We have seen what the pandemic is doing to countries with developed health systems and we are concerned about what it would do to countries with weaker systems and fewer available resources, said Fore. UNICEF is focusing its response to the pandemic on countries with existing humanitarian crises working both to prevent transmission and mitigate the collateral impacts on children, women and vulnerable populations, especially around access to health, nutrition, water and sanitation, education and protection. UNICEF has so far received US $215 million in support of its response to the pandemic. Additional funding will help UNICEF build upon results already achieved which include:
