Slight increase in the incidence rate of Covid in Andalusia:
{Translation} Updated: 24/05/2021, 13:31
-Andalusia has 1,400 new cases of coronavirus infection on Monday, 324 more than 48 hours ago but 97 fewer than on the same day last week. With five more deaths in the statistics, the region will exceed ten thousand deaths due to Covid-19 this week.
-The incidence rate has increased by six tenths in the 14-day accumulated rate (166.6) and two and a half points in seven days (76.6 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants). Huelva is now the province with the highest incidence rate and data at extreme risk level with 254 cases at 14 days and 126 at seven days. Above 200 cases per 100,000 inhabitants are Granada (244 cases at 14 days), Seville (218) and Jaén (214). Only Cádiz (98) and Almería (81) have cumulative incidence rates of less than one hundred cases.
*Infection rates in the capitals*
-The epidemiological situation in the provincial capitals is very diverse. Cadiz is the only one with 14-day cumulative rates at low risk. (39 cases). The rest exceed one hundred cases: Almeria has 107, Cordoba 114, Malaga 123, Seville 161 and Jaen 184. Above 200 cases, Huelva capital has 262 and Granada, with 292 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-The most important graphs now, in the midst of the mass vaccination process, are those showing the evolution of the pressure of care in hospitals. As every Monday the number of hospitalised patients has risen, with 22 new patients the number of people with Covid hospitalised is 868, of which 233 are in ICU, four less than the previous day.

What To Do When Your Business Is Hacked: As businesses move to a remote workforce, hackers have increased their activity to capitalize on new security holes. Cybercriminals often use unsophisticated methods that continue to be extremely successful. These include phishing emails to harvest credentials and gain easy access to business-critical environments.
Hackers are also using ransomware to hold your data hostage, demanding a ransom payment in exchange for a decryption key that unlocks your stolen data.
When dealing with a cyberattack, there are practical steps you want to follow. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2021/05/what-to-do-when-your-business-is-hacked.html


Spanish Telescopes locate key molecule at the origin of life for the first time in space: Named ethanolamine, it is the key molecule at the origin of life because it contains the four fundamental chemical elements (oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen) and an international group of researchers has detected it for the first time in the space.
The research has been led by researchers from the Astrobiology Center (CAB), a joint center of the Higher Council for Scientific Research and the National Institute of Aerospace Technology of the Ministry of Defense, and the discovery has been made in a molecular cloud located in the center of the galaxy.
Its discovery has been possible thanks to radio telescope 30 meters in diameter installed at the Pico Veleta (Granada) and the 40-meter one at the Yebes Observatory (Guadalajara).
“Our results suggest that ethanolamine is synthesized in a very efficient way in interstellar space in molecular clouds where new stars and planetary systems are formed,” the principal investigator highlighted.
The appearance of cell membranes, research centers have highlighted, represents a very important milestone in the origin of life on Earth, since they are in charge of maintaining stable conditions inside the cells, protecting both the genetic material and the metabolic machinery.

Are Crypto Wallets Safe?…Not For Long! IRS Wants Tools for Cracking Crypto Wallets: As more people across the globe get into trading and purchasing goods using cryptocurrencies—even the federal government—the IRS’s Criminal Investigations division wants “reliable” tools and processes for cracking crypto wallets.
The Digital Forensics Unit of the IRS is interested in purchasing tools capable of cracking crypto wallets, the IRS also wants to help “mature the process” to “obtain reliable results.”
“The explicit outcome of this requirement is to tame the cybersecurity research into measured, repeatable, consistent digital forensics processes that can be trained and followed in a digital forensics’ laboratory,” contracting officials wrote. “The tools and processes should be usable for any crypto wallet on the market, including software and hardware models.”
(Once the IRS gets these tools, no doubt they will be available to hackers as well. -Ed.)
