About five years ago, Areg Danagoulian, associate professor in the MIT Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE), became intrigued by a technique developed by researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory that uses a neutron beam to identify unknown materials.

“They could look into a black box containing uranium and say what kind and how much,” says Danagoulian, who directs MIT’s Laboratory of Applied Nuclear Physics (LANPh). “I was

Cool new technology or a security risk?

If you own an Amazon Echo Alexa voice assistant or Ring doorbell or camera, I’m hoping you’ve at least heard of a new technology from Amazon called Sidewalk, which is drawing a bit of controversy.

Israel researchers find four security flaws in Microsoft Office software

Cybersecurity researchers at Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. said they have identified four vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Office software suite, including Excel and Office.

If exploited, the vulnerabilities would enable hackers to inject malicious code into Office documents, such as Word, Excel and Outlook, and send them to unwitting targets.

The vulnerabilities could allow hackers to take control of computers, start a ransomware attack, access data and read files, the researchers said.

The source of the weaknesses stem from coding mistakes in a graph-making feature called MSGraph that has been in use in the Office software package since 1995. This
