Still remember the Stuxnet virus that crippled the United States used Iran’s nuclear facilities? According to security expert Eugene Kaspersky of Kaspersky Labs, is only a matter of time before cyber terrorists use similar methods to attack a country vital infrastructure.
It was expressed when speaking in Information Security conference in London. As quoted by The Inquirer, Kaspersky said that the attack against vital infrastructure is “the worst possible of the bad”.
“We live in the age of cyber weapons and cyber warfare. Till now, an attack (against critical infrastructure) seems to only come from the government of a country,” said Kaspersky.
He added that the technology to carry out such an attack is not owned by the terrorists, but it is only a matter of time.
Described by Kaspersky, cyber attacks are launched by a country is usually done with a “very professional”, learn the victim by taking the data.
Kaspersky split into three possible scenarios of cyber terrorism by scale effects. The first and the worst are the attacks on industrial systems such as power generation, telecommunications, transportation, and healthcare.
“(About the telecommunications industry), I do not know how to protect them other than using brain intelligence. Worried that I can do is get ready to welcome the attack and manage the damage,” said Kaspersky.
Scenario most “serious” the second one is an attack against critical infrastructure in the IT field that could cripple an industry. Many industries rely heavily on IT infrastructure, but do not realize it.
Third, the attack on the government, especially education. “The good news is I do not know what’s worse scenario,” said Kaspersky.
He explained, the more terrorists will probably be switching to cyber weapon because it is cheaper and easier to develop than physical weapons.
Professor Mark Kendall is the inventor Nanopatch – a small patch, smaller than a postage stamp, but containing thousands of tiny dots that can only be seen under a microscope. Small dots is what will bring in the vaccine into the skin surface.
According to the Brisbane Times, Thursday (04/18/2013), during the last nine years, Kendall and his team who provides international researchers working to create a vaccine without a needle tool in the laboratory. Basically, this technology was made to incorporate the vaccine into the body of the children, without the use of needles.
Now it costs three times injection vaccine is 50 Australian dollars (about $ 500 thousand) and with the new technology, it costs only 50 cents (approximately USD 50 thousand).
October, Kendall will conduct clinical trials in Papua New Guinea.
Nanopatch almost like the technology of Star Trek. “In plain view, it looks like a small patch. Yet if we look under the microscope, there are thousands of a sharp point, where the vaccine was applied,” said Kendall. “When attached, the sharp point will break the surface of the skin and send it to thousands of vaccine cells in the body.”
According to Kendall, the patient with this process, especially the kids will not feel pain, and also do not be afraid because there are no needles involved. It also said that vaksinisasi using nanopatch this will be cheaper than the vaccine using syringe because the nano does not need to be placed in the refrigerator.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared kekhawatiranya that the vaccine is not effective in today’s world because in many third world are not stored in the refrigerator. “We’ve proved that Nanopatch not need to be stored in a cool place. From experiments with mice, the dose does not need to be big. So with that, the two major problems spread of vaccination in the developing world can be overcome,” said Kendall.
When the patrol car sedan Japan Indonesia still use regular, Dubai police should be proud. Because, they just got the Lamborghini Aventador as a patrol car.
