- MOSQUITO attack allows to exfiltrates data from Air-Gapped computers via leverage connected speakersSecurity Affairs
Once again the team demonstrated that separating the computer networks from the Internet is not enough to protect them from attackers. In the past, the same group of researchers demonstrated that it possible to listen to private conversations by reversing headphones connected to a previously infected computer.
The MOSQUITO technique establishes a covert ultrasonic transmission between two air-gapped computers using speaker-to-speaker communication.
- In Britain’s Playgrounds, ‘Bringing in Risk’ to Build Resilience – The New York Times
— Ever feel like everything is just a stupid cycle of doom?
Educators in Britain, after decades spent in a collective effort to minimize risk, are now, cautiously, getting into the business of providing it.
Four years ago, for instance, teachers at the Richmond Avenue Primary and Nursery School looked critically around their campus and set about, as one of them put it, “bringing in risk.”
Out went the plastic playhouses and in came the dicey stuff: stacks of two-by-fours, crates and loose bricks. The schoolyard got a mud pit, a tire swing, log stumps and workbenches with hammers and saws.
“We thought, how can we bring that element of risk into your everyday environment?” said Leah Morris, who manages the early years program at the school in Shoeburyness in southeast Britain. “We were looking at, O.K., so we’ve got a sand pit, what can we add to the sand pit to make it more risky?”
Now, Ms. Morris says proudly, “we have fires, we use knives, saws, different tools,” all used under adult supervision. Indoors, scissors abound, and so do sharp-edged tape dispensers (“they normally only cut themselves once,” she says).

Not that this is necessarily what I think or that this is what your pattern should be . . . but I see these types of learning workflow considerations to be what students ought to be considering.
