ETP takes a hands-off approach for first-party cookies – those tied to the site being browsed – because to do otherwise would break many of those websites or require users to, say, log in each time they returned.To read this article in full, please click here

Screenshot: Garmin Fitness brand Garmin paid millions of dollars in ransom after an attack took many of its products and services offline last month, Sky News reports. The payment was reportedly made through a ransomware negotiation company called Arete IR, in order for Garmin to recover data held hostage as a result of the attack. BleepingComputer reported last week that Garmin had received a decryption key to access data encrypted by the virus, and that the initial ransom demand was for $10 million. The attack itself began on July 23rd, and put Garmin’s wearables, apps, website, and even its call centers offline for several days. Garmin confirmed that it had been the victim of a cyberattack on July 27th, as many of its services were starting to come... Continue reading…

Most think of multicloud just how it sounds: an architecture that leverages plural public and/or private clouds at the same time, in support of best-of-breed cloud services. In other words, we use multicloud as a path to access the cloud services that are the best fit.As multicloud becomes the norm, I’ve observed that the design and deployment of multicloud-based architectures is really not about the underlying clouds. There are a few reasons for this:[ Learn all about the cloud at InfoWorld. Start with the basics: What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now. Then learn what is IaaS (infrastructure as a service), what is PaaS (platform as a service), and what is SaaS (software as a service). | Get ready for the latest trend in cloud computing: What is multicloud? The next step in cloud computing. ] First, technology to manage multiclouds should sit above and separate from the cloud-native resources it is managing. It does not matter if the tools are for AIops, identity and access management, network monitoring, metadata management, etc. When deploying multiclouds, it’s always better to leverage technology that spans the clouds and is not limited to operating a single branded platform.   To read this article in full, please click here

Coronavirus has changed everything. Make sense of it all with the Waugh Zone, our evening politics briefing. Sign up now.US secretary of state Mike Pompeo has told Tory MPs the UK must be less naive about China and develop a “grand strategy” for a tougher approach to Beijing, HuffPost UK has learned.Pompeo held the controversial private meeting with China-sceptic Tories before talks with Boris Johnson on Tuesday.Pompeo was said to be pleased about recent moves by the UK government to strip Chinese telecoms firm Huawei out of the UK’s 5G infrastructure and to make diplomatic moves against Beijing in response to its national security law in Hong Kong.But the secretary of state told MPs that he wants to see the UK now adopt a harder “grand strategy” across Whitehall to counter Chinese influence in the West, a source said.“It’s clear that the US wants the UK to move further and faster in this area,” they said.Another source described Pompeo taking a “collegiate” approach as part of a mission to build a “coalition” of people with “significant concerns” about China and a “shared sense of values”.Paraphrasing the secretary of state, they said his concerns were broadly that “China was a one party state, was not a friend to democracy, did bad things at home and we need to be less naive really about it, which I agree with.”Pompeo is said to have told MPs that the West needs to be more “realistic” about Beijing.Following Johnson’s subsequent meeting with Pompeo, No.10 said the pair discussed the situation in China and the need for members of the Five Eyes security alliance to work on the “technologies of the future”.They also spoke about “shared global security” and the situation in China’s Xinjiang province, amid fresh outrage over the apparent persecution of Uighur people after a video circulated online showing prisoners bound and blindfolded in a train station.Frosty relations between the US and China led to president Donald Trump’s administration imposing sanctions on Huawei over security concerns – a decision that played a major part in the UK government’s move last week to demand that the Chinese technology giant’s equipment is stripped out of the country’s burgeoning 5G network by 2027.Pompeo’s arrival also came after the UK not only suspended its extradition treaty with Hong Kong but also slapped an arms embargo on the territory in response to China’s national security law.Britain has already offered citizenship to overseas nationals in Hong Kong who wish to flee amid fears of a crackdown by Beijing.Backbench Tories have been pressing for a tougher approach to China, particularly in relation to its role in building nuclear power plants in Britain.But the government’s U-turn on Huawei – a reversal of the announcement in January allowing it a limited 5G role – and approach to Hong Kong has left China aggrieved.On Tuesday, China warned Britain will “bear the consequences” of going “down the wrong road” after the UK suspended its extradition treaty with Hong Kong.A spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in London said Beijing had expressed its concerns over the UK interfering in Hong Kong affairs “which are internal affairs of China”.“Now the UK side has gone even further down the wrong road in disregard of China’s solemn position and repeated representations,” the spokesperson said in a statement on the embassy’s website.“It once again contravened international law and the basic norms governing international relations and blatantly interfered in China’s internal affairs in an attempt to disrupt the implementation of the National Security Law for Hong Kong SAR and undermine the city’s prosperity and stability.“China urges the UK side to immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs, which are China’s internal affairs, in any form.“The UK will bear the consequences if it insists on going down the wrong road.”Related...

For months Uber has been providing health officials with data to help them with their contact tracing efforts, Reuters reports. The ride-sharing company has designed a portal specifically for health officials to request user data. The new service received 560 requests from 29 countries in the first half of 2020. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Uber has been quietly helping health officials around the world with contact tracing, the company told Reuters. The ride-sharing company has built a special portal for health officials to request access to rider and driver data. Uber has provided user data to officials before, for example with police departments investigating a crime.  Officials can ask for data based on passenger names of ride receipts, the idea being that it could help them get in touch with someone who might need to quarantine. Company officials told Reuters the service has been active for months, and the company is able to provide relevant data within a few hours of receiving a request. In the first half of 2020, the company received 560 coronavirus-related requests from 29 countries. Out of the 560 requests, 158 came from the US. The service was already in the works before the pandemic hit the US, Uber told Reuters. In 2019 the company started receiving requests from US health officials following a measles outbreak. Unspecified company executives held a meeting with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health officials in Los Angeles in January 2020 to discuss how Uber data could be used for health purposes. The coronavirus was discussed at that meeting. "Our timing ended up being beneficial in that it allowed us to get ahead before COVID started ramping up globally," Uber's chief of global law enforcement, Mike Sullivan, told Reuters.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why thoroughbred horse semen is the world's most expensive liquid

The US state of Massachusetts filed a lawsuit against Uber and Lyft yesterday (Tuesday, July 14) saying that the companies are misclassifying their drivers as contractors when they should be employees. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, the companies are coming under the exact same scrutiny in California. “For years Uber and Lyft have built their billion-dollar businesses on a model that exploits drivers,” Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said when announcing the lawsuit. “Uber and Lyft set the rates. They alone set the rules.

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Let’s spend a few minutes today catching up on the antitrust inquiries into Google. There are investigations related to competition underway against most of the biggest tech giants – Apple, Facebook, and Amazon face similar inquiries, and their CEOS are scheduled to join Sundar Pichai for a virtual hearing with the House of Representatives later this month. But there’s reason to believe the case against Google will land the soonest of any of them — in May, the New York Times reported that charges could come “as early as this summer.” Scrutiny into the company’s business practices has since accelerated. Politico reported last week that California, which sat out an investigation led by 48 attorneys general, is preparing to mount its own... Continue reading…
