SAFEnet : Cyber ​​Attacks to Double in Early 2024

Morrissey Technology – The SAFEnet report revealed that digital or cyber attacks in Indonesia experienced an increase in early 2024. The number of digital security incidents during the January-March 2024 period was 61, with details of 13 in January, 20 in February and 27 in March. This record is almost double the number of incidents last year in the same period. In fact, the difference in incident records reached 28 cases between the beginning of 2023 and the beginning of 2024.

“Based on monitoring during the January-March 2024 period, digital incidents and attacks remain widespread,” wrote SAFEnet FOR4D in its monitoring report on digital rights in Indonesia for the first quarter of 2024.

“During those three months, at least 61 digital security incidents occurred. These incidents occurred 13 times in January, 20 times in February, and 27 times in March,” the report continued.

With that note, it can be concluded that the average digital security incident during January-March 2024 was 16.25 incidents per month. This figure is greater than the average for the same period last year, namely 11 incidents per month.

SAFEnet revealed that political motives remain the main suspicion behind the rise in cyber attacks at the beginning of this year. The motive is related to the 2024 election and criticism of the government and the presidential and vice presidential candidates in the 2024 presidential election. The report then gave several examples of cases of cyber attacks that occurred, such as when the Twitter/X account @veenarooth was suspended. The account can no longer be accessed after uploading a statement deemed offensive to one of the candidate pairs on February 16.

A month earlier, former vice presidential candidate number 3 Mahfud MD’s Instagram account was also hacked. The account was hacked on January 16 2024 to display a 12-second video showing Israeli soldiers playing football. Another digital security incident was experienced by UGM Yogyakarta Psychology Professor Koentjoro Soeparno and his colleagues. They experienced digital terror repeatedly after being involved in the Bulaksumur Petition FOR4D and the Campus Sues action on March 16 2024.

“Another incident occurred when Prof. Koentjoro Soeparno, Professor of Psychology at UGM Yogyakarta and several of his colleagues, experienced repeated threats (terror) after being involved in the Bulaksumur Petition and the Campus Suing action on Saturday, March 16 2024,” said the SAFEnet report FOR4D.

“The terror came via WhatsApp (WA) messages and anonymous telephone calls,” he continued.

SAFEnet also discovered digital attacks related to the 2024 elections experienced by the KPU as the institution that organizes the elections. On voting day, the KPU website was inaccessible since morning.

The site was also difficult to access on February 15 2024. The KPU then stated that the agency’s website experienced a digital attack in the form of DDoS FOR4D.

“On the day of voting, the KPU website could not be accessed since morning, but then it could be accessed again,” wrote the SAFEnet report.

“The next day, on February 15 2024, the KPU website could not be accessed again until 16.27 WIB,” the report continued.

MediaTek Dimensity 9300+ Released, AI Processing Becomes Faster

Morrissey TechnologyMediaTek released its newest system on a chip (SoC) called Dimensity 9300+, the successor to the Dimensity 9300. Compared to its predecessor, the clock speed of the Dimensity 9300+ is higher, this is because the main core (Cortex-X4) is set at 3.4GHz, not 3.25GHz like its predecessor. Meanwhile, the other three Cortex-X4 cores still have a speed of 2.85GHz, and the four power-saving cores are Cortex-A720 2GHz.

So even though the chip is still produced using the same 4nm+ process from TSMC, the performance can be faster. The GPU is still the same, namely the Immortalis-G720 which is equipped with ray tracing. The Dimensity 9300+ integrates a 2nd generation hardware raytracing engine with an Arm Immortalis-G720 GPU, providing gamers with a fast raytracing experience at a smooth 60 FPS, complemented by console-standard global lighting effects. Improvements also occurred in the AI ​​Processing Unit (APU), specifically the APU 790 FOR4D which promises a performance increase of 10% for AI processing because it uses NeuroPilot Speculative Decode Acceleration technology.

The powerful APU 790 AI engine enables the Dimensity 9300+ to not only support large language models (LLM) with parameters 1B, 7B, and 13B, with scalability up to 33B, but also run LLM quickly and efficiently. With NeuroPilot Speculative Decode Acceleration technology, Dimensity 9300+ can run LLM FOR4D with seven billion parameters at 22 tokens per second, faster than its rivals. With MediaTek’s Imagiq 990 ISP offering 18-bit RAW processing, the Dimensity 9300+ is promised to produce high quality photos and videos, even in low-light environments.

The Dimensity 9300+ is ideal for a wide range of AI applications, offering :

Support for LoRA Fusion and NeuroPilot LoRA Fusion 2.0 on devices so developers can quickly market new generative AI applications with text, images, music, and more. Support for the latest LLMs includes 01.AIYi-Nano, Alibaba Cloud Qwen, Baichuan AI, ERNIE-3.5-SE FOR4D, Google Gemini Nano, and Meta Llama 2 and Llama 3. Delegate ExecuTorch solutions to ecosystems that apply inference on devices.

“Dimensity 9300+ will help us continue to build a rich ecosystem of generative AI applications thanks to extensive LLM support on the chip and LoRA Fusion on the device,” said JS Hsu, Corporate Senior Vice President of MediaTek.

Samsung Exynos

Samsung Will Part Ways with AMD

Morrissey Technology – After several generations of Exynos chips using GPUs with AMD RDNA architecture, Samsung is said to be starting to use its own GPU in the Exynos 2600. According to a leak from Roland Quandt, the Exynos 2600 will use a Samsung GPU and not an RDNA GPU from AMD. However, the Exynos 2600 will only be released in 2026, and should only be used in the Galaxy S26 line.

Meanwhile, the Exynos 2500, which will be released in 2025, will still use a GPU from AMD. This chip will be used in the Galaxy S25 and S25+ range in several countries, except the United States and China. So Samsung has quite a lot of time to work on its own GPU, because the new Exynos 2600 will be released in 2026. Including optimizing its performance so that it can be equivalent to the Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm FOR4D which will be released in 2026.

Meanwhile, the Exynos 2500, which will be released in 2025, is said to be Samsung’s first application processor (AP) made by Samsung Foundry with a 3nm process. It is reported that this chip will be more efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 because the Qualcomm chip is made by TSMC using the N3E (3nm) process. Samsung’s chips will be superior because they have implemented Gate-All-Around (GAA) transistors with 3nm fabrication, while TSMC will only implement GAA FOR4D when producing 2nm chips in 2025.

The use of GAA makes chip power consumption more efficient. Namely because it uses horizontal nanosheets that are stacked vertically. That way there is a “gate” that touches between each layer and can reduce power leakage, superiorly increasing the electrical signal between transistors. So in general, the application of GAA FOR4D will increase overall chip performance.

Artifical Inteligence

Will AI Make People Lose Their Jobs?

Morrissey Technology – Amid rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI), many workers are anxious about the future of their careers. AI, which is increasingly sophisticated and capable of performing a variety of human tasks, has raised questions about the relevance of human skills in the future. Director of the Digital Economy and Economist at the Center of Economic and Law Studies (Celios) Nailul Huda revealed that there are many jobs that can be replaced by AI. Even so, human existence is still needed.

“We can’t close our eyes. AI will replace human jobs. But we still need it. AI’s development must also come from humans who ordered it to create artificial intelligence,” said Nailul in Jakarta.

He added that the presence of AI creates new jobs. It’s just that at the same time new challenges emerge. “Don’t let new job opportunities emerge but instead foreign workers will come in,” said Nailul. Therefore, he reminded us to improve our abilities. So that it is not eroded by AI and foreign workers. “We have to be prepared to become qualified human resources. When jobs are lost because of AI, new jobs appear but they are filled by foreign workers,” said Nailul.

Expert Prompt

In a world increasingly influenced by AI, the ability to communicate with machines is becoming increasingly important. Therefore, Deputy Minister of Communication and Information (Wamenkominfo) Nezar Patria needs expertise in creating prompts. Prompts really determine the effectiveness of generative AI. Well-designed prompts can lead AI to produce relevant, accurate and innovative responses.

“Generative AI will read the prompts created, adapting to the impulses given,” said Nezar FOR4D.

To make a good prompt, according to the Deputy Minister of Communication and Information, it’s not just anything. There is knowledge in everything and fortunately nowadays it is easy to learn through online courses. “Who is good at making prompts will be more advanced in utilizing AI,” concluded Nezar.

Winamp

Winamp Rises from the Grave Again This July

Morrissey TechnologyWinamp, the legendary music player that was popular in the 1990s to early 2000s, has announced the presence of their new version. This latest version was launched with a fresher and more modern design, as well as more complete features.

Llama Group, formerly known as Radionomy and the current owner of Winamp, revealed that the new Winamp music platform is scheduled to launch on July 1, 2024. The company insists this is a new phase that brings a unique solution to the monetization challenges facing the music industry today. Llama Group will bring 50,000 artists to the platform by 2024 alone, with a long-term goal of bringing 1 million music creators to the platform over the next five years.

Winamp, which will be available this July, will be different from the 2023 version FOR4D. This time it will combine song player software, music streaming services and exclusive offers such as NFTs and merchandise.

Llama Group explains that there are three main products brought by the latest Winamp. Firstly, Winamp for Creators is designed specifically for music monetization. Then Winamp Collaborator facilitates the discovery of new creative and business partners for artists. And Winamp Player FOR4D promises a smooth music listening experience.

Llama Group promises to launch a new version of the classic Winamp desktop player. This application was stopped for five years until development officially resumed in 2018 with Winamp 5.8. The latest version of the app, Winamp 5.9.2, was released in April 2023, offering a powerful listening and music management experience, especially for those who don’t like streaming, as reported by Techspot

6G Wireless Technology

Latest 6G Wireless Technology 500 Times Faster Than 5G Cell Phones

Morrissey Technology – Fifth generation or 5G connectivity for cellular technology has only been the network standard for about five years. But with 6G Wireless Technology already here, developers are looking for ways to take full advantage of the next generation’s enormous bandwidth. Judging from Science Alert, Friday (3/5/2024) a technology demo carried out in Japan showed a wireless device prototype reaching a data transfer speed of 100 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than 5G at its peak, and 500 times faster than the average smartphone 5G.

The result of extensive research and development carried out by Japanese telecommunications company NTT, Japanese mobile phone operator DOCOMO, and electronics companies NEC and Fujitsu, the device uses high-frequency bands in the 100 GHz and 300 GHz range, allowing it to pack significantly more data than previous generation standards.

This is still a work in progress given the current trade-off in terms of range, but experiments show a stable connection at distances over 100 meters. Advances in communications technology will in fact require different forms of transmitters and receivers as 6G networks are built, relying largely on innovations like these. Speaking of hardware, it’s worth noting that this demo requires a lot of high-end equipment. However, as technology develops, the size and cost of such equipment will gradually decrease.

It’s also important to remember that a top speed of 10 Gbps for 5G is the technical limit, under perfect conditions, using the most powerful and well-optimized hardware. According to Opensignal, average 5G speeds for smartphones on T-Mobile in the US, the best carrier in the country for 5G speeds, currently stands at 186.3 Mbps. In other words, 6G promises much better speed improvements. That would be useful in everything from high-resolution movie downloads to communications between autonomous vehicles.

As with 5G, there will be leaps forward in terms of bandwidth, or network capacity, as more devices can stay connected at the same time. If you’ve ever lost phone signal while watching a concert or sporting event, you’re no doubt familiar with network congestion. Well, things like that won’t happen with 6G. In certain situations, we may see 6G make WiFi redundant FOR4D, something that is already starting to happen with 5G. There may be no need to run physical cables to the front door of your home or office.

Looking at it more broadly, think of more devices coming online at higher speeds, equipped with more components and sensors that can communicate with the web (and each other). Nokia estimates 6G may be commercially available in 2030. Meanwhile, we currently have to deal with ‘new’ 5G networks that already seem slow compared to what the future holds.

Apple

Apple Creates Secret AI Lab, Includes Ex-Google Engineers

Morrissey TechnologyApple is suspected of poaching a number of artificial intelligence (AI) experts from Google and establishing an AI laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland. This research facility aims to research and produce new AI-based products and also create machine learning models. The alleged hijacking of a number of AI experts from Google comes from an analysis conducted by the Financial Times.

The Financial Times analyzed hundreds of job vacancies, profiles on LinkedIn, and learned a number of things over the past few years. From there they suspect that Apple has recruited at least 36 AI experts from Google, starting with John Giannandrea in 2018, who is now the boss of Apple’s AI division, specifically as SVP Machine Learning and AI Strategy.

Then according to professor Luc Van Gool from ETH Zurich, Apple has opened a research and development lab in Zurich called Vision Lab. The research facility employs experts from two local startups that have been acquired by Apple, namely FaceShift and Fashwell. FaceShift, a motion capture startup, was acquired by Apple in 2015 and Fashwell, an AI-based visual search startup, was acquired in 2019.

Apple even has two recruiting offices in Zurich, and according to the Financial Times FOR4D, one of the offices looks so closed off that even people working nearby don’t realize it’s an Apple office. Apple declined to comment on the existence of these secret offices and laboratories.

So far the team at Vision Lab has produced a number of research results related to generative AI, which focuses on models for using text and image input to produce accurate answers. For example, a user can ask where to buy a jacket whose image was taken using a cellphone camera. The machine learning model can provide answers in the form of a list of shops that sell the jacket.

Until now, Apple has not made much noise regarding this research, and is even considered to be late in entering the AI ​​sector. This is because other large technology companies such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and others have released various AI-based products over the past few years.

Astribot

China Shows Off Household Assistant Robot, Can Cook and Iron Clothes

Morrissey Technology – Companies from China make technological breakthroughs. They showed off a household assistant robot (ART) that can cook and iron clothes. A company called Astribot has just shown its newest robot equipped with artificial intelligence. The robot resembles a human and is very good at imitating movements.

Based on information on the Astribot website, they have been working on this robot for one year. They hope that this robot can be marketed at the end of this year. The robot with the name S1 is faster and stronger than the average human. According to Astribot, the robot can move at a maximum speed of up to 10 meters per second and lift loads of up to 10 kg per hand.

By comparison, an adult human can reach speeds of around seven meters per second. This allows the robot to pull the cloth from under the glass without it falling. S1 is able to perform tasks with great precision, from flipping sandwiches in a frying pan to writing calligraphy. The video released by Astribot shows S1’s ability to carry out easy daily tasks, such as preparing drinks and preparing food.

This shows how these robots can become ART in the future. However, Astribot will not only make this robot a servant of the rich. This robot is also prepared to be able to take over jobs that are considered dangerous for humans. According to Astribot, their robots can learn, think and work like ordinary humans.

They may also use human tools and equipment. In this way, the S1 robot can help other people complete tedious, difficult, or dangerous jobs. The site also indicates that its parent company, Stardust Intelligence, was founded by Lai Jie FOR4D. It also collaborates with Tencent Robotics Laboratory, Baidu, and Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Tencent and Baidu are the two largest technology and AI companies in China. Together they help strengthen in the ongoing fierce technology war with the United States. Sources in Beijing say that the robot will soon be available in every home. S1 is a two-armed robot and looks quite ‘quiet’ compared to other humanoid robots we’ve seen. For example, earlier this month Boston Dynamics showed the world its newest Atlas robot capable of superhuman yoga movements.

Hypershield, Cisco Security Solution for Enterprise Class

Morrissey TechnologyCisco has a new solution for securing data centers and clouds due to the increasing demand for the AI ​​revolution in IT infrastructure. This solution is Cisco Hypershield, which can protect applications, devices and data in all public, private data centers, or in the cloud and in physical locations, according to customer needs. This Hypershield was designed and built as a solution to maintain security in the AI ​​era. Cisco claims Hypershield enables companies to achieve security outcomes beyond what humans can do.

“Cisco Hypershield is one of the most significant security innovations in our history. With the reliability of our data and strengths in security platforms, infrastructure, and observability, Cisco is uniquely positioned to help our customers harness the power of AI,” said Chuck Robbins, chairman and Cisco CEO.

Hypershield is built on technology originally developed for hyperscale public clouds and is now available to enterprise IT teams of all sizes. This solution can even turn every network port into a high-performance security point that brings completely new security capabilities not only to the cloud, but also to data centers, manufacturing operations, or hospital imaging exam rooms. This new technology blocks exploits against applications in just minutes and stops lateral movement in its tracks.

“The power of Cisco Hypershield FOR4D is its ability to take security wherever it is needed – in software, in servers, or even in future network switches. When you have a distributed system spanning hundreds of thousands of nodes, simple management is critical. And we need to be more independence at much lower costs,” said Jeetu Patel, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Security and Collaboration, Cisco.

The three main pillars of Hypershield are :

AI-Native: Built and designed from the start to be autonomous and predictive, Hypershield performs management autonomously once it has gained trust, enabling a highly distributed approach at scale. Cloud-Native: Hypershield is built on open source eBPF FOR4D, the default mechanism for connecting and protecting cloud native workloads in hyperscale clouds. Cisco acquired leading enterprise eBPF provider Isovalent earlier this month.

Highly Distributed: Cisco completely reimagines the way traditional network security works by embedding advanced security controls into the servers and network fabric itself. Hypershield spans all clouds and leverages hardware acceleration such as Data Processing Units (DPU), to analyze and respond to anomalies in application and network behavior. This moves security closer to the workloads that need protection. Cisco, together with NVIDIA, is committed to developing and optimizing AI-native security solutions to protect and thrive the data center of the future.

This collaboration includes leveraging the NVIDIA Morpheus cybersecurity AI framework to accelerate network anomaly detection, as well as the NVIDIA NIM microservice to run custom AI security assistants for the enterprise. NVIDIA’s convergence accelerator combines the power of GPU and DPU computing, to empower Cisco Hypershield with strong security from the cloud to the edge.

“Together, Cisco and NVIDIA are harnessing the power of AI to provide a robust, highly secure data center infrastructure that will enable enterprises to transform their businesses and deliver benefits to customers everywhere,” said Kevin Dieirling, SVP of Networking at Nvidia FOR4D. Cisco also claims Hypershield addresses three key challenges customers face in defending against today’s sophisticated threat landscape:

  • Distributed Exploit Protection
  • Autonomous Segmentation
  • Independent Quality Upgrades

Cisco Hypershield is expected to be generally available in August 2024. With Cisco’s recent acquisition of Splunk, customers will gain unmatched visibility and insight across their digital footprint for security protection.

Online Fraud

Why Can Tech-Savvy People Become Victims of Online Fraud?

Morrissey Technology – Many people think that only the elderly and technologically illiterate people have the potential to become victims of online fraud. It turns out that young people and technology-savvy people are also quite a few victims. Google’s latest survey results found that the 25-34 year age group is a group that is vulnerable to online fraud in a number of Southeast Asian countries. This finding was also agreed by clinical psychologist from Singapore Annabelle Chow.

In a virtual media briefing with Google, Chow said that young people and educated professionals are more vulnerable to online fraud attempts due to several psychological factors. According to Chow, people who know a lot about specific things and niches are easily manipulated by online fraudsters. He gave an example of how he was once tricked by a scam website when looking for his dream alcoholic drink because he was tempted by a discount.

“The website looked very trustworthy, but it turned out to be a scam website. So I actually got scammed and ended up having to cancel my credit card and so on,” said Chow.

“So I have knowledge about gin (alcoholic drinks) and I am more vulnerable, it is easier to manipulate me in situations like that,” he continued.

Physical and mental conditions as well as the surrounding environment are also factors that make a person more vulnerable FOR4D to fraud. People who are stressed and have a lot on their minds are unlikely to focus when they receive a telephone call that turns out to be a scam, and without realizing it they have handed over sensitive information and even money to the fraudster. Fraudsters also usually urge their potential victims to act quickly without thinking. For example, saying the discount will end soon, the concert ticket quota is running out, or threatening that the victim’s bank account will be blocked if they don’t provide their mobile banking password.

Therefore, Chow advises all internet users to always be careful and think twice if they get an offer that doesn’t make sense, aka too good to be true, so as not to become a victim of online fraud.

If you find your dream cellphone at a price that is much cheaper than the price at the official store, pay attention to the seller’s website and online store to see whether it looks suspicious or not. If you find a simple app like a document reader that asks for sensitive access like location, microphone, and contacts, it’s best to avoid it FOR4D.

“So don’t be too quick to ignore the security warnings implemented by technology platforms, because basically these are designed to provide an additional layer of protection so that we can slow down and think twice before making decisions,” explained Chow.
