Cybersecurity at #power plants needs #advice it can #actually use

Source: National Cyber Security News

Security advisories for critical infrastructure like power plants often recommend patches. But in most cases, a report finds, the advice isn’t practical.

Imagine if every time you were sick, all your doctor did was tell you to take some medicine.

That’s it. No prescription, no details on what to take, when to take it, where to get it, or even whether you can take it. Just, “take medicine.” That’d be completely useless information.

This is essentially what vulnerability advisories for industrial controls have been like over the last year, according to a new report by Dragos. The cybersecurity company focuses on critical infrastructure, which includes everything from power plants to factories to water supplies.

Government officials have become increasingly worried about cybersecurity at critical infrastructure facilities. Attacks in recent years have shown that attackers can get access to power grids and factories. In 2016, Russian hackers causing a blackout in Ukraine.

On Wednesday, Dragos CEO Robert M. Lee testified before Congress during a Senate Energy and Natural Resources committee hearing on cybersecurity threats to critical infrastructure.

“I’m very confident the US government has a response if a major cyberattack were to occur,” Lee said.

Many Parents Who Think They Have Food Allergies Actually Don’t

When kids have food allergies, the children’s parents may think they have food allergies too, but this is often not the case, a new study found.

The study, which involved only parents of kids with food allergies, showed that many parents who reported also having food allergies didn’t actually have any. In fact, when the researchers conducted allergy tests on parents who thought they had these allergies, more than 70 percent of these parents tested negative.

The study calls into question the reliability of people’s self-reports of allergies, the researchers said. The findings are also surprising, given that parents whose children have food allergies might be expected to have more knowledge than people in general about what counts as a food allergy, the researchers said.

“Virtual Infant Programs” Actually Increase Teen Pregnancies

In some communities, teens participate in “virtual infant parenting,” where they must care for robotic dolls that look and act like real babies. Participants spend a few days feeding, changing diapers, and supporting the dolls to experience the challenges of life as a teen parent. However, a new study of Australian girls has found these programs are not effective. Seventeen percent of girls who cared for virtual babies ended up becoming pregnant during their teen years, compared to 11 percent of those outside of the program. Teen pregnancies are at an all-time low in the United States. Experts believe the reason is education and use of contraception.

Hey, Girl, The History Of The Word ‘Girl’ Is Actually Crazy

There’s “gal,” there’s “lady,” and now, there’s “kween” (comma, “yas”).

The ways modern girls evade calling each other “girls” are myriad, but most of them take on the same semi-ironic tone, mocking the days when femininity, monolithic as it was, could be neatly contained within the parameters of a word.

As much as those old-timey words smack of condescension ― “ladies” seems at home in the mouth of a suited courter, verbally italicized ― they can also generate feelings of solidarity among women, and so we use them, half-seriously. “Lady” has a disparaging air; it implies that a woman behaves as she “should.
