Interview

Ever wonder when you’re watching CSI about the scientific process for matching crime scene DNA to the suspect? We talked with Dr. Arthur Eisenberg, Co-Director of the Center for Human Identification a the University of North Texas. Dr. Eisenberg was also employee number 20 in the company that pioneered DNA analysis for the purpose of identifying criminals. (Hired in 1984, incidentally. For whatever that’s worth.)


Our Take On This Week’s News

Wired Story: Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet [Note: These planes actually are Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, not Drones].  But, one information security researcher speculates has an alternate theory and ponders if the software might not be malware.   An excellent essay on UAVs, and the future of warfare, from Kenneth Anderson at the well-respected The Volokh Conspiracy blog

Claim from the Chaos Computer Club: “The largest European hacker club, “Chaos Computer Club” (CCC), has reverse engineered and analyzed a “lawful interception” malware program used by German police forces. It has been found in the wild and submitted to the CCC anonymously. The malware can not only siphon away intimate data but also offers a remote control or backdoor functionality for uploading and executing arbitrary other programs. Significant design and implementation flaws make all of the functionality available to anyone on the internet.” Read more here.
