The airlines must learn to assume that #hackers are already inside in-flight networks, and rather than claiming that it's impossible, concentrate on protecting the data that really matters and focus on important vulnerabilities. According to one security expert I interviewed, total protection of aircraft networks is impossible. http://www.eweek.com/security/security-expert-says-blocking-access-to-airliner-networks-impossible.html

Microsoft is bowing to the demands of corporate users with #Windows10 when it's released this summer. The new version shartly lowers the learning curve, and it eliminates the need to buy new hardware in the form of touchscreens, both issues that made business users stick with Windows 7. But #Microsoft is still making the touch interface available for those who can use it. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/microsoft-tries-to-make-business-users-comfortable-with-windows-10.html

Rob has it right on this issue.
 
Views of an overwhelming majority of the House and most of the Senate: reform the Patriot Act to take away (some of) the NSA's car keys.

Views of some 2016 presidential candidates: 
• Agreed!
• That's not enough. Nuke the Patriot Act from orbit; it's the only way to be sure.
• Patriot Act forever!
• ¯\(ツ)

Read on at +Yahoo Tech to find out how all over the map the 2016 candidates are on this important issue.
Sometime in the next few days, Congress will tell us what it wants to do about the USA Patriot Act. It will either pass a bill that curbs the National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ phone-calling records, extend the NSA’s current authority under the Act, or deadlock and let the relevant section of the Act expire on June 1. It’s an important choice, the kind where we expect our representatives to earn their salaries. It’s also unearthi...

The decision by the US Court of Appeals that the #NSA collection of phone metadata was not authorized by the Patriot Act could be a setback to the agency, but the court chose not to issue a stay, so the data collection will continue. How to stop it? Pass new legislation now in Congress. http://www.eweek.com/security/court-opinion-on-nsa-phone-metadata-collection-wont-soon-stop-it.html

Using #cloud technology can be a huge benefit for enterprises, once they get past the lack of standards, the months it takes to adjust everything to use a specific service, and the difficulty of making changes. But the Open Cloud Connect foks are trying to change all of that. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/open-cloud-connect-promotes-standards-to-spur-cloud-computing-growth.html

Pretty much everyone says it's impossible to hack into an airliner in flight, but is it really? Maybe instead of simple denials, some real investigation is necessary. The fact is, those airliner systems really are interconnected in multiple ways. I take a look at what might have happened. http://www.eweek.com/security/airliner-flight-control-hacks-likely-more-feasible-than-we-might-wish.html

Will the #FCC kill net neutrality by trying to save it? The next action by a group of ISPs, cable companies and associations is to file a petition with the Court of Appeals for a #stay in the FCC's reclassification of Internet access under #TitleII. They argue that Title II could wreak havoc on Internet access and is fraught with uncertainty, and after reading their petition, they have a point. http://www.eweek.com/networking/cable-companies-isps-ask-court-to-block-fcc-title-ii-neutrality-rule.html

The #FCC has rejected petitions asking to stay the implementation of Title II pending the court decisions from the many lawsuits challenging it. But that doesn't mean there won't be a stay ordered by one of the many courts involved in these motions. What's worse, by pressing ahead with Title II at all costs, the FCC could ultimately doom net neutrality if the FCC loses again in court. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/fcc-rejects-net-neutrality-delay-but-court-ordered-stay-possible.html

Commercial #drone operations are closer yet as the #FAA announces partnerships with three companies to research aspects of drone operations, and announces a new drone flight planning app for your smartphone. The FAA is looking for beta testers for this app and is inviting people to sign up. See the article for details. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/faa-backs-major-drone-research-efforts-mobile-flight-planning-app.html

I find this to be very encouraging news. I don't want the FAA to move too fast on drones, but I am in favor of reasonable and proactive movement towards making this technology safe and effective for a lot of applications.

#Cylance Protect fights viruses and malware by doing code analysis and watching behavior. It does not use signatures. This could be the AV of the guture. http://www.eweek.com/security/cylance-delivers-the-anti-malware-product-of-the-future.html

It turns out that some of the ads being presented on your browser may contain #malware. This includes ads provided by major providers such as #Google and others. Worse, there's not a lot you can do to stop it, and the ad providers don't have a good way to check for malware before they send you malware laden ads. Make sure everything especially your browser and anti-malware are up to date. http://www.eweek.com/security/new-advertising-malware-spreads-through-web-advertising-channels.html
