A new malware threat group, BlackEnergy, has been gaining momentum recently with widespread attacks across Europe, Middle East, Asia and the US, impacting on Linux systems, Cisco hardware and industrial controls like Windows SCADA
Offering another target stream for the AntibioticDriveAB, some MRSA bugs in UK hospitals can be traced back to a type of bacteria found in farm animals, suggests an Edinburgh University study. A strain of drug-resistant bacteria carried by some livestock - the MRSA strain Staphylococcus aureus CC398 - has also been found in patients, say researchers.

The existence of the "Hacienda" spy program reported by a group of journalists, has five western intelligence agencies using the Hacienda software to identify vulnerable servers across the world in order to control them and use them for their own purposes. TUM (Technische Universität München) scientists have developed free software that can help prevent this kind of identification and the subsequent systems capture.
Newborns suffering from life-threatening bacterial infections such as sepsis could benefit from improved treatment, thanks to a ground-breaking study where researchers have been able to detect and decode a signal generated from a baby’s DNA that can tell whether or not a bacterial infection is present in the bloodstream.
