Not all VPNs are created equal

In today’s digital world, protecting yourself online has never been more important. Virtual private networks (VPN) have grown popularity as a quick and easy way to make sure that your internet service provider, the government or even malicious third parties are not tracking your activity online. While there are many free VPNs that offer their services in exchange for users seeing ads when they log on, some are less reputable than others.

Trend Micro recently released a report highlighting significant security risks in one popular free VPN provider. TechRadar Pro spoke with the Trend Micro’s Principal Security Strategist Bharat Mistry to learn more about the report and what consumers should look for when signing up for a VPN.

Why are VPNs growing in popularity among consumers and what are their primary uses for these services?

Consumers are increasingly using VPNs for Privacy and Identity protection more than anything else. By having a VPN you have an encrypted channel between your browser and the VPN endpoint thus stopping prying eyes (Governments, Internet Service Providers, Cyber Criminals and other eavesdroppers) seeing the sites that you are going to and the data you are accessing. 

VPN services are especially useful when accessing public Wi-Fi hotspots because the public wireless services might not be secure and having an encrypted channel ensures that the data is not seen by unintended parties. The other reason why VPNs are commonly used is so that users can access uncensored content that would normally not be allowed within their country or region. A good example of this is consumers using a VPN service which terminates in the UK to access BBC iPlayer content from outside the UK.

How can the average user tell if a VPN is safe to use? Are there any surefire ways to determine a VPN’s safety?

Any free or community VPN service will always have some drawback associated with it as the operators of the service require some revenue generation in order to keep the service up and running. For the average user unfortunately there is no sure fire easy way of ensuring a “free or Community” VPN service is safe to use as the VPN client or software on the user’s device may be doing other things such as harvesting personal information, sniffing the local network, interrogating the local machine’s registry, browser history and cache and selling the information on to the highest bidder. 

The only way to ensure that a VPN service is genuine is to opt for a fee based service from well-known service providers that have a good reputation and have reviews from independent organisations.

How can some VPNs afford to offer their services to users for free?

There is no way a VPN service can be provided for free as it costs a lot of money to provide the infrastructure comprising of network links, bandwidth, servers and hosting. That infrastructure has to be paid for somehow. If it’s not paid for by user fees, it’s likely to be paid for by advertising, data gathering, or some nastier reason.

What was your company’s motivation for investigating the free version of HolaVPN?

The motivation behind the investigation was to expose the service for what it actually is, rather than how it’s marketed. Users of VPN services are extremely reliant on the privacy and identity protection features, especially those in oppressed countries where “freedom of speech” is prohibited or where the government is eavesdropping on the communications of individuals without any consent.

How can a residential proxy network potentially be abused by cybercriminals?

A large residential proxy network is a big risk to security on the internet. Because the exit nodes are hard to track and are of a dynamic nature, it is possible for users of the network to be anonymous to a high degree thus attracting cybercriminals and fraudsters. It is not hard to imagine that actors committing click fraud or targeted attackers who do reconnaissance of a network have a great interest in getting access to a residential proxy network. The advertisement business in general is exposed to a lot of attempts to commit fraud. The incentive for committing advertisement fraud is large as the total market of advertisements on the internet is estimated at many billions of dollars and is still growing each day.

What advice would you give to a consumer or business shopping for a VPN for the first time?

My advice for first time buyers is there is no such thing as a free VPN service as it costs money to operate the VPN infrastructure, so do your research first and foremost. Use search engines like Google for company or product name and read the review, especially those from independent trusted organisations or from professional reviewers. If you see a huge number of complaints showing then it might suggest the service isn’t reputable. Finally, be sure to choose a service that has capabilities that meet your needs. You may need one or more features only provided by certain services. So, think through your needs as you make a decision.

10 ways 5G will change daily life

5G is here, and everyone at CES 2019 in Las Vegas was talking about what it’s going to do. 

AT&T has begun its mmWave network in 12 cities in the US – albeit via 5G mobile hotspot devices – with Verizon about to follow suite, Telstra is close to releasing 5G in Australia, while EE is on the cusp in the UK. 

Everyone knows 5G is about blistering fast download speeds – and we also now know that 30 5G devices (mostly phones) are coming in 2019  – but what else will it do? Here’s what we learned during an eventful week at CES 2019.

1. Home broadband without the cables

This is the big one, and it’s not much talked about because 5G is largely thought of as a technology for those on-the-go. 

At present, if you live or work in an area that has fiber optic cable underneath the road, you can have super-fast broadband. If you don’t have that infrastructure, tough luck. 

That all changes with 5G, which gets rid of the need to physically connect a home or an office to a cable running down the street, but also makes huge plants and factories cable-free. 

“That’s a lot of why some of the our enterprise customers have been knocking on our doors asking about 5G because they see it as a way to not have to wire their facilities,” said Alicia Abella, VP of Advanced Technology Realization at AT&T.

2 Real-time augmented reality

At CES 2019, Belgian company Mimesys showed-off 5G-enabled holographic remote collaboration using Magic Leap’s mixed reality headsets (and also some awesome holographic business cards). 

AT&T also reaffirmed it plans to launch of a 5G zone on the Magic Leap campus in Plantation, Florida, during 2019. 

It says that 5G connectivity will give developers and creators the ability to test devices and applications on a 5G network and ‘create the future of entertainment.’

3. Fewer base stations and plastic smartphones

mmWave 5G means a lot of small boxes around cities, not huge base stations. Those boxes will have to use all-new housings that don’t block or affect the bandwidth. 

“5G is about density – we will see fewer base station towers with huge antennas, and many more nano-cells, router-sized housings that emit the signals,” said Dr. Günther Walze, Technical Marketing Director at Covestro, who is researching exactly what kinds of plastics and materials allows 5G signals through unaffected.

Phone designs will also have to change. “Metal housings on phones work for 4G because the antennas do not take up much space, and they are on the edges,” said Walze. 

“With 5G you have to have several antennas that are too large for the edge, so have to go through the back, and that makes a full-metal back very difficult.”

4. Autonomous cars, but only in cities

We know that for autonomous cars, 5G is an enabling technology. After all, they will need to talk to the cloud, and to each other, and instantly to avoid crashing. 

That limits where they can go. “Our emphasis will begin in urban areas where you can have more coverage and where you’re going to have the density of traffic to want to take advantage of traffic management, and collision avoidance,” said Abella.  

5. Mini-clouds everywhere

Welcome to edge computing, the enabling tech for 5G. Yes, 5G does mean an instant connection to the cloud, but only if you have the cloud close by. 

So instead of creating a load of massive data centers, 5G will see mini-clouds installed where they’re needed. 

“It’s about bringing the compute power closer to where the end device needs it so that you can reduce latency,” says Abella. “5G is an enabler to edge computing because it’s going to help us get some of those high speeds.” 

For example, in rural areas mmWave is likely to be installed on street-lights, with compute power close by. “If you need to do real-time analytics or processing you can’t afford to go from that rural area back to some data center far away, so you’d want to have something more closer to the roadside that can do the processing for you.”

6. Get ready for 8K on 5G TVs

At CES 2019, Sharp was showing off a 5G TV, but it wasn’t meant for the home. 

“Sharp already has 8K camcorders so we can film the players in a stadium, encode it, then transit it via a 5G system to be received on the other side of the stadium on a big public viewing system,” Atsushi Shirakawa, Researcher at Sharp’s Telecommunication and Image Technology Laboratories, told us.

The country is counting down to Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which will be broadcast in 8K by NHK.

7. Cloud gaming on smartphones

Whatever kind of gear they use at home, gamers have to switch to smartphone games when they’re not at home. 

With 5G, that changes; you’ll be ablate take any game anywhere on a phone and get the same performance as on a console back home. A demo on the Intel booth at CES saw a live 5G connection using Ericsson network gear. 

“You feel like you’re playing locally on a PlayStation, but it’s actually all on the server,” said Santi Magazu, VP Business Development at PlayGiga, a cloud gaming provider that for now requires a fibre-optic cable connection. 

“This means you could play all the games you play at home on the move, such as in a car or while commuting,” he added. 

8. Super-charged ‘second brains’

That extra speed and an instant connection to the cloud could mean much more advanced personal assistants on souped-up Google Glasses and in-ear hearables that can do incredible things almost instantly. 

“It’s my fantasy that I will one day have a device in my ear that tells me who I’m about to shake hands with,” said CES supremo Gary Shapiro. “Preferably without anyone else realizing that I’m being told.”

At CES 2019 Shapiro got a glimpse of his wish; the OrCam MyMe, a wearable camera and ‘second brain’ that has an AI capable of recognizing faces and text. Expect a lot more tech like that in the 5G era.  

9. Instant language translation with phones

Real-time translation tech is everywhere, but actually using it in real life – where it’s needed – is challenging because it’s just too slow to enable proper conversations. 

Forget for a moment that Google Translate usually gets everything wrong, and instead consider how 5G will allow it to work instantly. The same goes for offline handheld pocket translators like Travis, Pilot, and ili.

10. More phone zombies

Think there’s a movement for limiting screen time and becoming less obsessed with our phones? Forget it – 5G will likely tie us to our phones even more than they already do. 

“We are going to be even more connected at all times to a smartphone,” says Dan Pitchford, AI expert and Co-founder of AI Business. 

“You already see people walking down the street not looking where they’re going, fixated on their phone, and there’s probably going to be an increase in that [with the introduction of 5G].”

How AI is transforming the way doctors treat patients

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are happening at a much quicker pace than anyone could have predicted. This emerging technology is now being used by businesses and is even finding its way into consumer products. One industry that has fully embraced AI is healthcare and doctors and other hospital staff are using advanced machine learning algorithms to solve problems in new ways.

TechRadar Pro spoke with HeartFlow’s Founder and Chief Technology Officer Charles A. Taylor to learn more about how the company is using deep learning to build 3-D models of patients’ hearts to provide doctors with a safer and more effective way of diagnosing cardiovascular disease.

Can you explain the technology behind HeartFlow and how it is being used in the healthcare industry?

HeartFlow has pioneered technology to help clinicians diagnose coronary heart disease (CHD). Using data from a standard cardiac CTA scan, the HeartFlow Analysis first uses deep learning in order to create a personalised, digital 3D model of the patient’s coronary arteries.  HeartFlow then applies computational fluid dynamics and advanced algorithms to the model to assess the impact of blockages on blood flow. This analysis can help clinicians diagnose CHD, develop the optimal treatment for each patient and reduce the need for additional testing.  

The potential of the HeartFlow technology to make an impact on the world is huge, given that CHD is the leading cause of death worldwide. It is responsible for more than 66,000 deaths each year in the UK and it is estimated that more than 2.7 million British people currently live with the disease.  

The technology’s real-world applicability has been demonstrated in recent studies. For example, research from the ADVANCE Registry looked at more than 5,000 patients across Europe, Japan and North America. Using the HeartFlow Analysis allowed doctors to change their recommended treatment plan in two-thirds of patients. This meant that some patients who were due to receive stenting or a bypass were able to be treated with medication instead. Meanwhile, others who were due to be treated with medication only were identified as needing invasive management to optimise blood flow to the heart.  

How does your product take the information from a standard CT scan to create a personalised digital 3D model of a patient’s arteries?

The HeartFlow Analysis process begins with a cardiac CT scan of a patient’s heart. The hospital uploads the image data to HeartFlow’s secure cloud-based system, where machine learning and trained human analysts create a personalised digital 3D model of the patient’s coronary arteries.

Next, powerful algorithms solve millions of complex equations to simulate blood flow within the model. The impact of any blockages on blood flow in the arteries can then be assessed.  

The completed analysis is securely transferred back to the hospital and physicians. Cardiologists are able to interact with the model – selecting specific areas of the coronary arteries to investigate, zooming in and out, and rotating the image to give a level of examination ordinarily only possible through an invasive procedure.  

Ultimately it gives doctors a non-invasive way of looking at fractional flow reserve (FFRct) values along the arteries leading into the heart. “Fractional flow reserve” values describe the ratio of pressures upstream and downstream of a blockage in an artery to help physicians determine the impact a blockage may be having on blood flow. A positive FFRct value (<0.80) indicates that a blockage is impeding blood flow to the heart muscle. The HeartFlow Analysis was previously validated against invasive FFR and showed excellent correlation.  

How many hospitals have adopted your technology and how has it impacted the way they care for patients?

To date, the HeartFlow technology is available in more than 30 NHS England hospitals, with plans to expand further. The technology is being fast-tracked through the NHS Innovation and Technology Payment (ITP) programme, and as a Rapid Uptake Product through the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence’s (NICE) Accelerated Access Collaborative. These programmes seek to invest in cutting edge, market-ready medical advancements, diagnostics and digital platforms that improve the quality and efficiency of patient care.  

For patients, the benefits of the technology are clear – most can be diagnosed without undergoing an invasive diagnostic angiogram– something that comes with a certain level of risk and could contribute to some people feeling reluctant to investigate CHD symptoms.

In addition to the clear medical advantages offered by HeartFlow, it has also been projected to save the NHS money. NICE estimates that HeartFlow could save the health service more than nine million pounds every year. Savings come largely from the technology’s ability to reduce the need for costly additional testing or invasive procedures that might involve close monitoring or overnight admission.  

How does HeartFlow utilise algorithms to determine if a blockage will have a significant impact on blood flow?

The core of the HeartFlow Analysis rests on deep learning, computational fluid dynamics and cloud computing. HeartFlow uses deep learning technology applied to image data from a cardiac CTA scan to create a personalised 3D model of the patient’s coronary arteries. We then apply computational fluid dynamics to the model to calculate blood flow and assess the impact of blockages on coronary blood flow. This information aids physicians in the diagnosis of CHD and the determination of optimal treatment. The deep learning and computational fluid dynamics algorithms all run in the cloud, which is necessary in order to provide the HeartFlow Analysis at scale to serve a large population of patients.

HeartFlow also employs web and mobile applications in order to communicate with the hospital IT infrastructure. One important security measure is that only coronary CT image data is sent to HeartFlow in the United States via the cloud for analysis, and any patient identifying information remains in the country of origin. Once the analysis is complete, the 3D model is matched back to the patient identifier information and then sent back to the web interface so that doctors can review their analyses.

Would you say that the healthcare industry is adopting AI faster than other industries? If not, what are the barriers to AI adoption in healthcare?

It’s hard to say for sure, as there certainly are some compelling applications already in place. However, policy makers and healthcare professionals naturally take a cautious approach to technology and patient care, as people’s lives can be at stake. Thorough testing always needs to take place before implementing new ways of working, as happened with the HeartFlow Analysis.  

But the benefits of new technology can be significant – such as improving patient care, health outcomes and saving the NHS money. It’s no surprise that Prime Minister Theresa May has promised the healthcare industry millions to explore how AI can help the NHS. Additionally, the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, has made expanding the capability of technology in hospitals one of his top priorities. Last year he launched a whitepaper called the future of healthcare, which championed the role of technology in helping to modernise the NHS and improve efficiencies.  

What advice would you give to CTOs looking to integrate AI into their operations?

People can be resistant to change. This is true of employees in all industries, and this resistance is often experienced when new technologies are introduced somewhere without sufficient stakeholder engagement. 

However, the integration of AI will, in most cases, make medical staff and employees’ lives much easier and serve as a tool to help them achieve greater results. Too often this is only understood at the top of the organisation and in the C-suite. As CTOs, we should try and work with HR and internal communications to ensure all employees understand the organisation’s technology strategy, how it will help them to do their jobs better and, perhaps most importantly, the opportunities it will create.

What is the potential of AI in healthcare and could it possibly take the place of a consultant in the future?

The potential for AI in healthcare is tremendous, as AI increasingly becomes integrated into the healthcare ecosystem. AI is transforming the way doctors deliver cost-effective, high-quality diagnostic and treatment services to their patients. For example, the technology can identify patterns and anomalies in diagnostic data from medical scans at a speed and volume that humans are simply unable to replicate.  

The processing power of AI has applications far beyond providing simple diagnoses. It can be used to help health professionals identify the severity of what is wrong with the patient and provide insight as to why they are experiencing certain symptoms. This additional information helps doctors decide on the most effective treatment.  

AI has almost endless potential, but the bright future it offers cannot be reached if the necessary infrastructure is not in place to support its development.  

The implementation of AI technology serves to enhance the capability and efficiency of trained medical staff, not replace them. Taking the HeartFlow Analysis as an example, AI technology can quickly produce an accurate 3D model of the patient’s arteries from a CT scan, but it still requires a doctor to interpret the significance of the disease in the model, integrate it with other patient data, and subsequently decide on the best course of treatment.  

AI and the analysis it provides is invaluable, and it helps physicians most effectively use their time and provide improved diagnoses. However, human intervention will always remain at the centre of patient care.

Fallout 76 cheats have stolen unreleased items from secret ‘developer room’

Fallout 76 has a hidden ‘developer room’, which as the name suggests is for the devs to test things – such as upcoming items for the game – and PC players have discovered and broken into this area.

Reports of the room first popped up on Reddit a week ago, and a video was subsequently posted on YouTube showing the room and its plentiful contents (as spotted by Eurogamer) – see the (re-uploaded) clip below.

The room contains a ton of items – apparently every single item in the game including the most powerful stuff – along with some goodies which haven’t even arrived in Fallout 76 yet. There’s also a human NPC by the name of ‘Wooby’ who is apparently there for the purpose of being a punch-bag (i.e. allowing developers to test weapons).

Plenty of controversy has erupted, as some unscrupulous players who have entered the room are allegedly selling some of the items they have pilfered on the likes of eBay.

Apparently Bethesda is now combing the player base searching for those folks who have managed to access the room, and is suspending such accounts. So be warned if you’re at all tempted to try and find out how to get into the area (we’ve seen hints of how to do it online, but we’re not about to share that here).

Room for improvement

The developer room is not a new concept, and has previously been a feature of Bethesda’s past games, such as Fallout 4, for example. But obviously there’s a big difference between messing with your own environment in a single player game, and cheating to get inaccessible items in a massively multiplayer title.

It’s one thing using some kind of developer room for testing in an MMO, but quite how Bethesda has managed to make it even remotely possible to be accessed by players is unclear.

At any rate, as you can likely guess, a fair bit of controversy has erupted over the matter. And Bethesda can ill afford any more of that when it comes to the MMO, which has recently been plagued with item duplication issues.

In the past, the game has also been dogged with accusations of it being too easy to hack, not to mention controversy over Bethesda’s refund policy.

In some more positive news, Fallout 76 was recently patched to provide both better performance and stability, with PC players receiving this host of fixes and tweaks before the console world.

Presumably some kind of patch will be coming fairly swiftly to seal off the method of accessing the developer room…
