The effects of ethanol (an alcohol) on the human body

Written by IT News on 4:09 AM

In an attempt to exactly how fast the alcohol on the human brain, researchers at the University Hospital Heidelberg, led by researcher Armin Biller in eight men and seven women in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, and gave them alcohol. The participants drank from straws three beers, which have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05 to 0.06 percent, to do the driving. The researchers noted that changes were seen in the brain is less than six minutes after the alcohol has been ingested.

The change was most evident in the brain cells, which almost immediately began to run on alcohol produced from sugar, instead of its normal fuel, glucose. "Our study provides evidence for the use of alternative energy alcohol intake. Brain uses a breakdown product of alcohol instead of glucose for energy needs" Bill explained, quoted by Live Science. The researchers were surprised by the speed with which the drink began to affect brain cells, and said that the outcome was unexpected.

In addition, there is a reduction of creatine, a substance that plays an important role in protecting nerve cells outside interference. With a lower concentration of the stuff, brain cells are exposed to danger, the study concluded. The researchers also noted a significant reduction of the levels of substance choline, which is an important factor that makes cell brains. "It may suggest that alcohol leads to changes in the composition of the cell membrane," Bill explained.

"Our follow-up the next day showed that the changes in brain metabolites after excessive consumption of alcohol of healthy individuals are completely reversible. But we assume that the brain able to recover from the effects of alcohol reduce or stop the consumption of alcohol increases. The acute effects are demonstrated in our study may provide a basis for the permanent brain damage, it is known that alcoholics. This should be clarified in future studies, "wrote the expert in the latest issue of the Official Journal of cerebral blood flow and metabolism.

Previous studies have shown that the damage in the brain of alcohol is completely reversible, but that the brain's ability to heal may be hindered by smoking or drinking continuously. More long-term studies are needed to verify the effects of alcohol on human brains.

ATMs compromised with malware in Eastern Europe

Written by IT News on 10:46 PM

After the March report from Sophos about a Trojan that infects Diebold ATMs and steal credit card data, a similar type of malware analysis (PDF) by researchers from the Wave Trust. The malicious program can infect Windows XP machines from multiple vendors and features complex functions.

The file is analyzed by the Wave Trust, a creation date of July 25, 2007, suggesting that this type of malware is very complicated for a while now. "It is [...] think this is a relatively early version of malware and later versions have seen significant additional functionality," the researchers advise.

Like the Trojan reported by Sophos, this threat was discovered in Eastern Europe and seems to focus on accounts with balances in the U.S. dollar, Russian ruble and Ukrainian Hryvnia. The analysis suggests that the malware has been developed by a person with a clear knowledge of the ATM software and professional coding skills and must be installed by bank insiders, such as those responsible with ATM maintenance.

The malware is installed in the folder C: \ Windows Lsass.exe and hijack "Protected Storage" service on the system reboots. It hooks into processes that handle transactions and messages to leave the track 2 data and the PIN number of credit cards for ATM. This information is stored in two separate text files and are encrypted using DES algorithm.

Several operations can be performed by introducing controller card in jeopardy ATM. There are two types of display cards, one that gives access to all functions and the other only for a function that allows printing of the recorded data via ATM receipt printer. The first is probably used by cybercriminals, while the limited controller card is the most likely hired for money mules.

Using the interface on the ATM screen as a full-access card is the analyzed version allows attackers to reset or delete the logs, to remove the malware, view statistics on business start-ATM system, the printing of a test message or Print all information collected.

A secondary menu is available for answers to a challenge question posed. From this menu cyber Crooksville can try to access information generally available only for ATM managers, such as how much money is currently in the machine. This can be useful, since the malware is able to output ATM cash dispensing unit’s cassette.

Scientists are still unable to determine the exact application of another function identified. The only comment that it "seems to be associated with memory card reader / writer functionality that can be used for harvested data directly to a map injected into a compromised ATM."

"Trust Wave collected several versions of this malware and that over time will develop. It will also be launched to encourage wider population of ATMs, as a proactive strategy for prevention and identification may be necessary to prevent future attacks," warns the company.

Twitter settles suit with Tony La Russa

Written by IT News on 10:37 PM

Twitter has apparently settled out of court with Tony La Russa, manager of St. Louis Cardinal Major League Baseball team, after a match earlier this week in connection with the infringement of trademark.

A Twitter user a false account of La Russa's name and used it to write tweeter that later found very offensive. The administrator contacted the social networking site to remove the account, but he maintains it never responded, even after several weeks. This leads him to file a suit accusing Twitter infringement of the mark as this page had the name of the user, in this case, Tony La Russa in its URL. He also claimed that the tweeter him "significant emotional distress" when she comment on two Cardinal pitchers who died.

The settlement was reached very quickly and apparently Twitter will only La Russa to cover legal costs and perhaps a donation to the Animal Rescue Foundation, director of charity or animal shelter. La Russa insisted that the suits on trademark infringement, despite earlier comments of its representatives. "... The biggest misconception was that it was someone using Twitter to be critical of me," La Russa told Post Dispatch centers. "I'm tired of the critics. You cannot sue someone who criticizes you. It was the view which I or we were angry at the criticism. No, it was an improper use of the name."

It is good to know that the suit was so short that the reasons were unclear at best. Twitter user conditions require that parody accounts are allowed, and the U.S. legislation does not keep websites responsible for the content of their users offer. But Twitter has decided to cheaper alternatives and perhaps gains some positive publicity after donating to animal charities.
