Mayhem: A Supercomputer to Tackle Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities

Cybersecurity and threats management is a major worry of companies. There is not a single complete security arrangement that can detect, exploit and dispatch security threats alone. White-hatters are continuously armoring the industry from different cyber-attacks, but they are also not untouched from human errors and mistakes. So the industry is very desperately looking for an automatic and fault proof protection.

security_image-696x464

Pentagon autonomous challenge came with a brand new endeavor that stands out on every single aspect of concern related to cybersecurity. Mayhem supercomputer, built by ForAllSecure enterprises is the new face that can handle any kind of security threat. The winner crown of DARPA security challenge justifies its claim.  It establishes itself in the World’s largest summit of hackers by participating in “Flags to Capture” competition and grasp the attention of all with its big and several meter long apparatus. It requires a huge amount of electricity and water cooler to cool itself from the warmth of 300-kilowatt electricity.

DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has been conducting such attempt to protect the software and application and select the most efficient software program that can run in almost every kind of device of daily use and make them safe and attack proof.

Enhancement of technology and implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it more crucial and urgent as inter-device communication enhances the widespread of the virus and threats injection from one device to another.

Working of Mayhem mega machine

It primarily works on two concepts that are fuzzing and symbolic execution.

The combined effort of two individual approaches to analyze and dispatch the duty is the core mechanism of fuzzing and symbolic execution. If we have to say it in simple words, Symbolic execution creates an equation for each logic that is implemented in an attacking program and fetches the solution of a bug accordingly.

On the other hand, fuzzing is the process of permutation and combination of information under a program, so that program gets crashed and in this way, it determines the vulnerable nature and weakness of a program. It works quite perfectly in determining the solution and weakness of most frequent program. Fuzzing is inserting the unknown set of data continuously into program’s string till the equation designed by symbolic execution reaches to its solution.

Fuzzing is like hit and trial method with tremendous speed. It guesses about the solution very smartly as well as very speedily. Symbolic execution is similar to solving a mathematical equation and knows that which input can spoil the attacking software system and inserting that very solution into the software to dismiss the attack.

How to Fix iPad Black Screen Issue?

What will you do if your iPad gets attached on a “black screen” and it gives you no response? This will be a nightmare. Users can apply many fixes for making your iPad work again. Start with the most straightforward solutions and then we will move towards the tougher ones.

ipad-blank

  1. Begin with the “power button”

You might have tried this already. Now try to press and hold Sleep/Wake button. Press it for a minimum of “30 seconds”. At least till you see the logo of Apple. Follow the given steps if it is  not working well.

  1. Consider changing the battery

Your iPad got a black screen issue? The most prominent issue can be depletion of battery. iPad has no power for displaying the symbol of lightning charging. Allow your iPad to charge for a minimum of 20 minutes or overnight. It is ok to use iPad during open charge, but as you encountered any issue, avoid using it while on charge.

  1. How to fix this battery issue?

If the issue is drained battery, then it is a recurring issue. Maybe the culprit is your battery. Just head over to Settings>Battery and go down for seeing the usage. Applications that consume battery will be at the top. The percentage will be written at side. If you notice that an app is draining more battery, then uninstall the app.

  1. Look for the Charging Port

You might haven’t noticed it yet, but this can be an issue. It is possible that the charging point is dirty and your equipment isn’t getting proper charging. Maybe dirt is accumulated inside the port. Whenever you push charging port to the device, you compress dirt. Take help of a wooden toothpick, non-metal tool etc. for dislodging the dust.

  1. Adjust screen brightness

Maybe iPad is on, but you are unable to see the display because the brightness is set too dim. Ask Siri to enhance the brightness of the screen by pulling up the bottom menu. Increase the intensity by moving the slider. On the uppermost right-hand list, swipe down for accessing the brightness of the screen.

  1. Go for a system restart

Restart your system, and you will get out of this issue quickly. Restarting will not erase data, but it will force a reboot. Just hold both Sleep/Wake buttons and Home button for 15 seconds at least. You will see the logo of Apple to see the iPad coming back to life.

  1. Burping the iPad

Sounding funny? But it is not, many of the iPad users have forums that burping helps in making connections. Ensure that the iPad is off before you try burping. Safely coat the back and front of your iPad by a towel. Pat the spine of iPad like a baby. Do this for a minute when you start unbundling iPad. Attempt to turn it on repeatedly. If your issue is fixed by now, then you might be having a hardware issue.

  1. System Update

Tried all the fixes above? iPad screen is still black, go for a system update. You just need to have a PC, Mac or computer including the freshest version if iTunes. Join the “iPad charger” to Computer and iPad. Go to iTunes and tap and continue both the Sleep/Wake and Home button. Don’t move till you start seeing recovery mode screen. Choose the update right when you look at the option to Update or Restore.

  1. System Restore

The last left resort is system restore. Doing this will leave you with no data on “your iPad”. Have a backup of everything on the cloud, then recover all data. Learn to recover all of your data by online sources else your data will be lost.

Fortnite: How to accomplish Season 7 Week 9 Battle Pass Challenges

Fortnite is ongoing with its Season 7 Week 9 challenges and events in which players have to complete a variety of daily tasks and quests in order to achieve awesome rewards and prizes.

This new week has brought a number of tasks like using the Sneaky Snowman item or getting on the Storming X-4 aircraft. But in addition to these tasks, a new series of the quest is also available for the fans.

fortnite-season-5-week-9-challenge-guide.jpg.optimal

For this week’s Battle Pass challenges, players are required to locate specific structures in the game map and dance on them. These structures include the Sundial, the Giant Metal dog head and the Oversized cup of coffee.

This challenge event of dancing on the top of different buildings is undoubtedly not one of its kind and dedicated players of Fortnite will indeed relate to this event and would be able to spot some of the locations. Still, all the players who have recently joined Fortnite would find it difficult to accomplish this event.

So in order to complete this week’s Battle Pass challenges you are required to spot and dance on the three different locations, which will grant you a new battle Star.

The first location in the list of places where players have to dance is the Sundial, which is situated at the deserted part of the Fortnite map. This Sundial is made up of various logs and vehicles placed in a systematic order and resembles with the actual clock.

You will have to head to the southeast of Paradise Palms and reach up to the small mountain to locate the Sundial location. Or you can also choose to take the Fatal Fields route to reach at the Sundial location as the first mountain from that direction leads to the designated place.

As players reach this location and dance on the mountain, the Sundial challenge would be accomplished, and gamers can then head to the second assigned structure.

The Oversize Cup of Coffee is the second location where gamers are required to perform a dance move. This object is located at the Dusty Divot and is quite massive in size so locating the oversize cup won’t be that difficult.

As you reach the top of the Dusty Divot, you will spot a giant cup with Dusty Dines text on it. Create a ram and reach the top of the cup and then perform your dance move on it.

After completing your task at the second location, players will now require to go to the Giant Metal Dog Head, which is precisely located at the entry gate of the Junk Junction.

This third location is the easiest location to spot, and even the noobs would not miss this location. Now all you need to do is go straight to the Giant Dog Head and dance at the top of it.

As you successfully dance on the third object, you will accomplish all the required tasks for this challenge, and the player will be liable to obtain a Battle Star, which could later be traded to receive higher Battle Pass.
