A State Department fact sheet released by the Trump administration in January said that the researchers had gotten sick in autumn 2019 but did not go a
  2. Human tissue preserved since World War I yields new clues about 1918 pandemic On 27 June 1918, two young German soldiers—one age 18, the other 17—died in Berlin from a new influenza strain that had emerged earlier that year. Their lungs ended up in the collection of the Berlin Museum of Medical History, where they rested, fixed in formalin, for 100 years. Now, researchers have managed to sequence large parts of the virus that infected the two men, giving a glimpse into the early days of the most devastating pandemic of the 20th century. The partial genomes hold some tantalizing
  3. One year into pandemic, sky begins to clear over U.S. economy SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Despite the U.S. economy’s near miss with a depression last year and an ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has brought travel to a virtual halt, Jeff Hurst, the chief executive of vacation rental firm VRBO, sees a boom on the horizon.

  6. Dare we say... telco fiddled while roam burned? Vodafone was today left counting the cost of reduced international travel among its customer base due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The group's revenue fell 2.3 per cent to €21.43bn in the six months ending to September 30, which the telco attributed [PDF] to a steep decline in roaming charges. Lower handset sales were also partially blamed.

The fact that attackers hide malware inside encrypted traffic is not news any longer. What might be surprising, however, is just how much the practice has recently spiked due in part to the shift to remote work in the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers from Zscaler analyzed attack data gathered from customers of the company's cloud security platform between January and September this year. The security vendor discovered
