    Monkeypox virus is EVOLVING to be better at infecting people, analysis warns

    Scientists fear an even more infectious strain of monkeypox could emerge as the tropical virus continues to mutate and spread between people. Researchers in the UK said the virus was now mutating at a ‘much higher rate’ than it had in 2018, when only occasional cases were detected. Their analysis showed mutations were particularly focused on a gene that the human immune system attacks to stop the virus from mutating, helping it dodge immunity. The team also suggested monkeypox, or mpox, had been circulating in humans since at least 2016 — or six years before the current outbreak. The above graph shows mpox infections in the US across 2022, when…

    Random Number Generator Is A Blast From The Past

    Hackers love random numbers, or more accurately, the pursuit of them. It turns out that computers are so good at following our exacting instructions that they are largely incapable of doing anything that would fit the strict definition of randomness — which has lead to some elaborate methods of generating the unexpected. Admittedly, the SB42 Random Number Generator built by [Simon Boak] isn’t exactly something you’d be using for cryptography. The method used to generate the digits, a pair of 555 timers sending pulses through linear-feedback shift registers, would at best be considered pseudo-random. Plus the only way of getting the digits out of the machine is by extracting them…
