Retailers prepare for hack attack; Recent malware breaches have stores increasing security budget
October 25, 2014
Retailers are shoring up defences against escalating hacking attacks but as threats multiply so do costs, with businesses increasingly factoring cybercrime into their prospects for growth. Home Depot Inc., which saw some 56 million payment cards compromised in a malware assault this year that may have begun at infected self-checkout terminals, said initial costs of $62 million (U.S.) could reach much higher. The big box retailer with outlets in the U.S., Canada and Mexico said the fraud will likely have a significant adverse impact on financial results. In addition to direct losses, retailers believe the risk of legal liability and costly lawsuits will escalate.

FULL TEXT For a fighter pilot, gaining and maintaining air superiority over any battlespace is a given. Detecting 'the bad guy' without being detected oneself is highly desirable. Radar, however clever, is an active sensor and can be detected. The 'mark one eyeball' - the human eye - can only see so far. Enter the thermal imager in the form of an infrared search-and-track (IRST) system: a passive sensor equipping air-defence fighters for long-range thermal identification of airborne targets. The IRST has been with us for half a century. US Air Force (USAF) F-101B Voodoo interceptors and F-102 Delta Daggers were equipped with an early form of IRST during the mid-1960s. US development then seemed to stagnate until the mid-1980s, when the then-Soviet Union revealed its MiG-29 'Fulcrum' fighter equipped with what was referred to as an 'optical radar'. Appearing in Finland in 1986, the UK in 1988, and Paris in 1989, this Russian IRST became the catalyst for the West's renewed interest in the technology.
