Popular remote learning software prone to hacking - Express Computer


Cyber security researchers have found critical vulnerabilities in a popular student monitoring software being used in the remote learning times, which could be used by hackers to gain full access over students computers, compromising their security and privacy. The McAfee Labs Advanced Threat Research team recently investigated a software called Netop Vision Pro produced by Netop and installed on computers used in several schools. They discovered four previously unreported critical issues. "These findings allow for elevation of privileges and ultimately remote code execution, which could be used by a malicious attacker, within the same network, to gain full control over students' computers," McAfee researchers said in a statement on Sunday. They reported the issues with Netop, and the company delivered an updated version in February, effectively patching many of the critical vulnerabilities.

Practical OpenCV 3 Image Processing with Python


OpenCV is a native cross-platform C Library for computer vision, machine learning, and image processing. It is increasingly being adopted in Python for developing applications to process visual data such as photographs or videos. OpenCV has C /C, Python, and Java interfaces with support for Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, and Android, and offers extensive libraries with over 500 functions. This video demonstrates how to develop a series of intermediate-to-advanced projects using OpenCV and Python, rather than teaching the core concepts of OpenCV in theoretical lessons. Instead, the working projects developed in this video teach the viewer how to apply their theoretical knowledge to topics such as image manipulation, augmented reality, object tracking, 3D scene reconstruction, statistical learning, and object categorization.

What Enhanced Mobile Broadband Means for Intelligent Sensors & Robotics


In my last article, I covered how 5G with Cloud technologies will transform computing by shifting the computing power from the device to the Cloud through edge computing, making high-end experiences, such as high-quality wireless VR, accessible to more people at lower cost, without the need for constant upgrades and with a lighter form factor. This transformation is pervasive, as the enhanced mobile broadband represented by 5G enables high bandwidth and low latency across all devices and sensors. The miniaturization of 5G chipsets and their integration in UHD video and depth cameras makes those truly mobile. As 5G networks are rolled out either through Fixed Wireless Access (WTTx) and mobile networks, mobile video capture, broadcasting, and consumption are made possible. WTTx has considerable impact on very high resolution capture thanks to a larger data bandwidth pipe, making not just multicast possible, but 3D capture also a reality.
