New study opens avenues for studying or targeting the main barrier to a cure — ScienceDaily

The latent reservoir is the last bastion of HIV’s resistance to a cure. But it is difficult to destroy because it is invisible: the cells in the reservoir harbor virus that is dormant, so they don’t have any viral proteins on their surface that would give them away.

As a result, scientists have struggled to learn what the reservoir looks like in individuals with HIV. And without this knowledge, they harbor little hope of being able to target the reservoir with therapies that could eliminate or reduce it, thus ridding people of HIV infection for good.

To fish out reservoir cells, scientists have to reawaken the virus by activating cells they collect from infected individuals. Once awake, the virus produces proteins that mark the surface of its host cells, which gives researchers a handle to find and study these cells. However, the very process of reactivating the virus leads to

Ad-Tech Company Adomni Is Targeting Voters in Digital Out-of-Home Spots

With Election Day almost a month away and major platforms like Facebook not accepting political ads in the days leading up to Nov. 3, marketers are looking to take messaging outside.

Adomni, the digital out-of-home (OOH) ad-tech company, is welcoming political marketers with open arms, offering them a chance to display ads in more than 200,000 programmatically-connected screens across the U.S. The goal is to give issue advocacy groups and people running for office the opportunity to reach voters with ads that can be updated as the news cycle changes.

Jonathan Gudai, Adomni’s CEO, said that “a lot of the political marketers” currently “have more money than they have actual ways to reach audiences.” And for companies like Adomni, it’s an opportunity to bring “the physical world” into the mix of reaching voters because there are no ad blockers or ways for them to skip what they’re seeing outside.

NASA targeting Halloween for next SpaceX Crew Dragon astronaut launch

NASA now plans to launch four astronauts to the International Space Station aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft on October 31, a Halloween flight that will mark the first operational use of the capsule following a successful piloted test flight earlier this summer.

The space agency initially targeted October 23 for the “Crew 1” mission, just nine days after the October 14 launch of two cosmonauts and NASA astronaut Kate Rubins aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft and two days after NASA flier Chris Cassidy and two cosmonaut crewmates return to Earth on October 21 aboard another Soyuz.

By delaying the Crew Dragon flight to October 31, the station crew and flight controllers in the U.S., Russia, Europe, Canada and Japan will get a chance to catch their collective breath while allowing additional time to resolve any open issues.

New Android Malware ‘Alien’ Targeting Coinbase Wallets Can Steal Passwords

KEY POINTS

  • Alien is based on Cerberus, a notorious malware that affected Google Play store
  • The malware can harvest and forward SMS messages, steal login credentials, and display fake login pages to users
  • Alien targets financial and cryptocurrency apps

A new Android malware, named “Alien”, targeting financial apps is capable of stealing credentials from 226 applications including cryptocurrency apps like Coinbase, according to security researchers from ThreatFabric.

The researchers say Alien has been active since the beginning of 2020 and is being offered as a “Malware-as-a-Service (MaaS)” in underground forums. The team noted that Alien was based on the source code for Cerberus, a notorious malware that Google’s security team was able to control by August 2020, Cointelegraph reported. 

Alien, even though it has the same base code as Cerberus, is more advanced and can intercept Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) codes and mimic and overlay content on top of other apps.

Girl flags massive iOS ad scam campaign targeting kids

A tip from a child helped security researchers discover an aggressive scam and adware campaign on both iOS and Android that was being promoted on TikTok and Instagram.

Researchers from Avast Security discovered the malicious apps when a girl found a TikTok profile that appeared to be promoting an abusive app and reported it. The apps had been downloaded a combined 2.4 million times on the App Store and Google Play.

The apps posed as platforms for entertainment, music downloads, or wallpapers. They served intrusive ads, even when they weren’t open in the foreground. And according to the report from Avast, they also used sly tactics to prevent users from uninstalling them.

Avast classified the apps as HiddenAds trojans. The trojan “that disguises itself as a safe and useful application but instead serves intrusive ads outside of the app, and hides the original app icon making it difficult for
