A 21-year-old Kentucky man who previously admitted to creating and selling a "remote access trojan" (RAT) known as LuminosityLink has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.

Colton Grubbs had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to unlawfully accessing computers in the furtherance of a criminal act, among other crimes.

When Grubbs was first charged, he claimed LuminosityLink was a legitimate tool for system administrators, and he never intended for it to be used maliciously. He reversed course in a plea agreement he signed in July 2017. In that document, he admitted for the first time that he knew some customers were using the software to control computers without owners' knowledge or permission. Grubbs also admitted emphasizing a wealth of malicious features in marketing materials that promoted the software.

Roborace wants the future of racing to be AI plus humans, working together

Ars Technica - October 16, 2018 - 7:22pm

Errolson Hugh

A quick look through the Cars Technica back catalog (the carchive, perhaps?) shows that autonomous driving technology and racing technology are both topics we return to quite often. But it has been a while since we covered their intersection—specifically, what's been going on at Roborace. The series first broke cover at the end of 2015 and then wowed everybody with the Robocar a few months later. It looks outrageous, made possible because it does not need to protect a human driver or generate meaningful downforce, two factors that overwhelmingly influence most race car designs.

Initially, the idea was for a driverless support series for Formula E. Roborace would supply teams with identical Robocars, and the teams would try to program a better racing AI. However, it's fair to say that the idea of watching a grid full of AI cars race each other did not meet with universal approval. "We realized that humans are very much part of the storyline of autonomous driving technology. The machines need to learn from humans. What’s it like to take a ride in one as a passenger? These cars have to learn how to fit into a human world. Human and AI cars will share the road," said Rod Chong, Roborace's deputy CEO.

Dealmaster: Get a Google Daydream View VR headset for $40

Ars Technica - October 16, 2018 - 7:19pm

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal on the coral version of Google's Daydream View VR headset, which is down to $40 at Verizon as of this writing.

While this is not the absolute lowest we've seen Google's mobile VR headset, it's still more than half off its standard $99 list price. Smartphone VR is still the lightest VR experience, but if you plan on buying a new Pixel 3, want to use it as your own personal movie theater, and don't want to splash the cash on a more advanced and standalone headset like the upcoming Oculus Quest, the Daydream View is still a decent entry point.

If you have no interest in virtual reality, we also have deals on AMD processors, sous vide cookers, the Nvidia Shield, storage, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.

Comcast complains it will make less money under Calif. net neutrality law

California's net neutrality law will cause "significant lost revenues" for Comcast, the nation's largest cable company said in a court filing this month.

Comcast described the net neutrality law's potential impact on its ability to charge online service providers and network operators for network interconnection.

"The paid interconnection provisions will harm Comcast's ability to enter into new, mutually beneficial interconnection agreements with edge providers that involve consideration, leading to a loss of existing and prospective interconnection partners and significant lost revenues," Comcast Senior VP Ken Klaer wrote in the filing in US District Court for the Eastern District of California. ("Edge provider" is the industry term for websites and other online platforms, such as Netflix and Google.)
