No fewer than 70 percent of internet-connected Seagate NAS hard drives have been compromised by a single malware program. That's a pretty startling figure. Security vendor Sophos says the bitcoin-mining malware Miner-C is the culprit.

I'm surprised this story hasn't garnered more attention. Perhaps it's because we're talking only 7,000 hard drives possibly in total, or perhaps it's because the mainstream media doesn't understand what NAS means. Either way, it has colossal implications. Apparently, storage admins:

Most smartphones can respond to your voice commands, but they might also respond to someone else's. Researchers from France's ANSSI information security agency has found a way to make Apple's Siri and Google voice search respond to commands.

With the voice commands listening, the radio waves can continue feeding signals into the mic that look to the phone like voice input. The researchers were able to use their system - based on an inexpensive open-source software GNU Radio, a USRP software-defined radio, an amplifier, and an antenna - to issue commands that sent the phone's browser to a specific website or placed a call.

There are thousands or maybe even millions of bacteria that live in the human body without causing any problems as such. However, some of the more harmful bacteria could be responsible for a bacterial infection in the intestines.

Some doctors may also recommend that the patient take zinc supplements for faster recovery from most stomach infections. People suffering from an infection in the small intestine should strictly stay away from all types of foods that are hard to digest. Keeping the patient hydrated throughout the day is very important and therefore, the patient should be encouraged to sip water or herbal tea at regular intervals.

Back in 1980, a prominent pediatrician named Barton Schmitt coined the term "fever phobia" to describe the understandable desire of many parents to bring down fevers in their children as quickly as possible.

A fever, not surprisingly, indicates that your child is fighting off some kind of infection, such as a simple cold, the flu, or an ear infection. It is not an illness in itself. In fact, a fever may do some good. A study published in the February 2004 Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that children who ran a fever during their first year were less likely to develop allergies later in childhood than children who did not have fever. More importantly, according to the AAP, a fever can help your child's body fight off infection.

The holiday season is the perfect time get out those scented candles and stock up on new ones. Apple pie, pumpkin spice, and evergreen are some of our favorites - year round, really. But some of the results from recent studies have given us pause.

It started when we spied an article by John Naish of the Daily Mail - the reporter said he found evidence to suggest that scented candles could actually make us quite sick. And it's not just candles; apparently "aerosols, plug-ins, gels, and incense sticks" are also troubling. The fear lies in the chemicals that can be found in the fragrance and wax. While more research certainly needs to be done to make a truly definitive statement, some researchers feel that extended, long-term use of certain scented items might lead to asthma, lung damage, or - in extreme cases - even cancer.
