As part of its quarterly earnings report, Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced Tuesday that CEO Meg Whitman would be stepping down from her position as of February 1, 2018.

Antonio Neri, the company’s current president, will be taking over as CEO. He will be paid $1 million.

Whitman, who took over the position as CEO in 2011 after what might be called a major management meltdown, oversaw the company’s two splits. Last year, HPE spun off its IT services division, while the original Hewlett Packard split into HPE and HP Inc. back in 2015. Whitman will retain a board position at the company.

PC vendors scramble as Intel announces vulnerability in firmware

Intel has issued a security alert that management firmware on a number of recent PC, server, and Internet-of-Things processor platforms is vulnerable to remote attack. Using the vulnerabilities, the most severe of which was uncovered by Mark Ermolov and Maxim Goryachy of Positive Technologies Research, remote attackers could launch commands on a host of Intel-based computers, including laptops and desktops shipped with Intel Core processors since 2015. They could gain access to privileged system information, and millions of computers could essentially be taken over as a result of the bug.

The company has posted a detection tool on its support website for Windows and Linux to help identify systems that are vulnerable. In the security alert, members of Intel's security team stated that "in response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of its Intel® Management Engine (ME), Intel® Trusted Execution Engine (TXE), and Intel® Server Platform Services (SPS) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience."

Four vulnerabilities were discovered that affect Intel Management Engine firmware versions 11.0 through 11.20. Two were found in earlier versions of ME, as well as two in Server Platform Services version 4.0 firmware and two in TXE version 3.0.

Before Peter Thiel invested, research on herpes vaccine began in US hotel rooms

Ars Technica - 4 hours 12 min ago

(credit: ZaldyImg)

The researcher who conducted a controversial 2016 herpes vaccine trial on the island of St. Kitts without federal safety oversight had secretly begun the trial in the US three years earlier. He began them in hotel rooms not far from his academic lab. That’s according to a new investigation by Kaiser Health News.

That researcher, the late Dr. William Halford of Southern Illinois University, administered shots to at least eight people with herpes in 2013. Without any federal or institutional approval or oversight, he administered the shots himself in rooms at a Holiday Inn Express and a Crowne Plaza Hotel within a short drive from SIU. Halford, who passed away from cancer in June of this year, was a microbiologist, not a physician.

Several people who received the vaccine have since complained to the FDA and SIU. They reported potential side effects of the vaccine including large, painful rashes and becoming infected with a strain of herpes different from their initial infection.
