A good reason to brush up on your math is cryptography. I am currently looking at lattice-based cryptography (which is believed to be quantum computer resistant) and fully homomorphic encryption (FHE).
You need a solid command of some advanced math concepts to find your way through this...
ADAV-2019-09-17: Chances are, you are affected by this one, as it is about vulnerabilities of consumer devices such as routers and network attached storage.
My day at CERN OpenDays 2019 - LHCb Site or at least part of it. Too much seen that day and still haven't had enough! #LHCb #CERN #hpc
CERN OpenDays 2019 – LHCb Site
CERN had its OpenDays on September 14 and 15. As the LHC is in Long Shutdown 2 (LS2) for upgrades until early 2021, this was a good possibility for CERN to present itself and its work to the public.
Both days drew huge crowds and lines for underground visits were long - at one point waiting times for ATLAS visits were 3 hours.
Interesting day at the "CSCS User Lab Day 2019"

"It should be noted that the attack is not just limited to WhatsApp and Telegram, and affects the functionality and privacy of many other Android apps as well."
Note that this requires a "malicious app" to be present on your phone, that manipulates the content, it can't be done just by sending you a media file. #cybersecurity #android
Solar Cycle 25 Preliminary Prediction
Not exactly News, as it dates back to April 2019, but still interesting since we are very close to the end of solar cycle 24 and the solar minimum.
NOAA and NASA experts sat together and came up with a preliminary prediction as to what to expect from the next solar cycle numbered 25.
New Active Region on Sun an End of Cycle 24 is Near
Today, we have a new active region on the Sun with two sunspots. The Hale magnetic configuration is given as β which means that there might be some solar flare activity, but not very likely above C class.
Location of new active region AR2748 on the Sun
Close-Up of AR2748
Sometimes you just can't figure out whether a worker just put this there or it is an #ArtInstallation
Moving websites to #Oracle's #Virtualbox™ is straightforward for the most part, but there are some challenges that need to be overcome...
«Dorian» moving towards Florida as a Category 4 Hurricane
While this is not a weather blog, I still think this is impressive. The Atlantic hurricane season started quietly in June with not much activity until end of August. Now we are reminded that the hurricane seasons lasts till November with this impressive system called «Dorian».
That's how the NOAA weather sat
Error in Tor Documentation for Bridge Configuration
I seem to have run into a problem using Tor's documentation for Tor bridge configuration on FreeBSD.According to mentioned documentation, you install the following software:
pkg install obfs4proxy-tor tor ca_root_nss
This works perfectly.
However, later in the documentation it says, that you will need to add
