The stories by +CBS Evening News and +CNBC that millions of Internet users will lose access to the Web on January 1 is simply wrong. Unfortunately, this is the result of using a single source with a vested interest in the story. Worse, they didn't appear to check with anyone else. This is lazy journalism, probably with little oversight, rushing to sell a story that seemed too good to be true. Well, it was. Now for a dose of reality, here's what's really going to happen: http://www.eweek.com/security/the-internet-will-keep-working-after-jan.-1-no-matter-what-cbs-says.html

Social media saved lives during the #ParisAttacks. Messages on Facebook and Twitter told first responders that people were trapped in the concert venue, and that the terrorists were killing everyone they could one by one. This told the police that they had to take action rather than negotiate. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/social-media-saved-lives-brought-people-closer-during-paris-attacks.html

Advances in social engineering help move cyber attack focus back to end users because they're so easily fooled into doing something dumb. http://www.eweek.com/security/malware-threat-comes-full-circle-to-focus-again-on-end-users.html

We found a new type of #malware that's delivered as a text file that's really #JavaScript. What happens is that you get an email purporting to be a scan of a fax, and you're asked to open an attachment that appears to be a document. Because it's a text file, your AV will ignore it. Because Windows may suppress the final ".js" extension, you may not notice that it's an executable script file. But when you click on it, the JavaScript runs and immediately retrieves three files that appear to be GIF images, but which are really parts of a malware infection. You'll never see what hit you. http://www.eweek.com/security/new-malware-emphasizes-need-to-train-employees-to-be-cynical.html

The US Department of Transportation and the FAA are working to put requirements for registration of #drones   in place before Christmas 2015. The rules would apply to all #UAS devices. That means that if you plan to hire a drone service for some photo shoots, you'll want to make sure they're registered. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/faa-to-impose-drone-registration-rules-by-end-of-2015.html

Once again eWEEK aims the #LUX2016 big data analysis tool at the Democratic debates to see how the voters really feel. Because of the power of this analytics engine, we didn't have to depend on guesswork and opinion, we had the real numbers. We found that while #Clinton is strong, #Sanders has surprising strength that could overtake. But the real surprise is that #Trump's numbers were so far ahead of any of the Democrats. #democraticdebate http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/analysis-shows-trumps-social-media-following-beat-democrats-in-debate.html

Security is the responsibility of the entire data chain. Carriers can no longer assume that their customers will be able to manage security on their own. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/mobile-security-is-the-responsibility-of-everyone-in-the-data-chain.html #CCA2015

One way to help keep an upper hand on #malware is to focus the power of big data on the problem using #deeplearning. Perimeter defenses simply can't catch everything. http://www.eweek.com/security/deep-learning-technology-sees-through-security-software-blind-spots.html

Once again eWEEK teams with #LUX2016 to perform a big data analysis of the levels of voter engagement during the most recent GOP Debates. Our major finding is that Sen. Ted Cruz was doing the best at engaging voters, followed by Sen Marco Rubio. We also find some candidates who might want to consider some other way to spend time and money because they're making no impact on voters at all. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/big-data-analysis-of-debate-shows-ted-cruz-grabbed-viewers-attention.html

The Senate is debating #CISA with approval of an amended bill expected this week, and perhaps as early as tonight. The bill fundamentally affects the relationships between businesses and their customers, and their privacy. http://www.eweek.com/security/cybersecurity-information-sharing-bill-heading-for-approval-in-senate.html

The new #Apple #iPhone6s may look just like its predecessor, but in reality it's a vastly different device. The first thing you notice is the performance, but the changes go far beyond just being faster. This is a very capable 64-bit computer that fits into your shirt pocket. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/there-is-more-to-the-apple-iphone-6s-than-meets-the-eye.html

The security threat to carriers comes from all directions because they must open their networks to everyone and protect themselves and their customers. http://www.eweek.com/security/for-carriers-security-threats-come-from-all-directions.html
