‘Planet Nine’ could be a danger to our solar system

The solar system could be struck by disaster when the Sun dies if the mysterious "Planet Nine" exists, report researchers from the University of Warwick. The presence of the hypothetical "Planet Nine" which may exist in the outer solar system could cause the elimination of at least one of the giant planets after the Sun dies, hurling them out into interstellar space through a sort of "pinball" effect, explained Dr Dimitri Veras from the department of physics. When the sun starts to die in around seven billion years, it will blow away half of its own mass and inflate itself by swallowing the Earth before fading into an ember known as a white dwarf. More →

Almost 80 percent organisations in North America, Europe prey to cyber attacks: Report

Nearly 80 percent of organisations in North America and Europe were victims of cyber attacks last year and almost half of the cyber attacks were through malware hidden in encrypted traffic to evade detection, a report said on Wednesday. The encryption technology that is crucial to protecting sensitive data in transit such as web transactions, emails and mobile apps, can allow malware hiding inside that encrypted traffic to pass uninspected through an organisation's security framework. The report by US-based security company A10 Networks in partnership with Ponemon Institute surveyed 1,023 IT and IT security practitioners in North America and Europe, highlighting the challenges these professionals face in preventing and detecting cyber attacks.

Twitter to share ad revenue with users for creating videos

Twitter has been pushing its character limit beyond 140 characters lately, and recently it has made a strong push to grab a bigger share of the video market. Recently in a bid to woo the kind of video creators YouTube has, the micro-blogging website Twitter has decided to share the ad revenue with people making the video content. The company has been reportedly saying that it will allow U.S. users who upload a video to share in any advertising revenue it generates. The idea of Twitter sharing its revenue is targeted at YouTube-style and approved creators who need to simply click a rev-share button when they upload their video and is open only for US users.  Unlike YouTube, which gives 55 percent of the money to creators and keeps 45 percent, Twitter wants to keep 30 percent and give away 70 percent to the content creator.
